VENOM’S VIDEO GAME FIRSTS

Venom had the (dis)honor of having his big screen debut in the well-meaning, but very flawed Spider-Man 3 in 2007. Now, eleven years later, the Spider-Man villain turned anti-hero is set to headline his own movie starring Tom Hardy as Eddie Brock and the toothy title character, arriving this Friday, October 5th. While this weekend will only mark Venom’s…

REVIEW: THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN (NINTENDO 3DS)

In 2011, Beenox delivered the first ever Spider-Man game to the 3DS with the release of Spider-Man: Edge of Time. Edge of Time was a respectable port to Nintendo’s underpowered handheld (in comparison to the main SKU of the game on PS3 and Xbox 360) that suffered from what a lot of 3-D games did on the PSP. The…

REVIEW: THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN (NINTENDO DS)

The Amazing Spider-Man (2012) and 2011’s Spider-Man: Edge of Time on the Nintendo DS, despite being unique experiences from their console counterparts, have a lot in common. Both failed to live up to the quality of their previous outings, Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions, though in the case of the DS game the development from Dimensions to Edge of Time had a developer change with Newfoundland based Other…

EVERY SPIDER-MAN MOVIE GAME EVER (ALMOST)

Spider-Man, to put it mildly, has gotten a lot of good publicity as of late. This week the character had a huge E3 when the Insomniac developed Marvel’s Spider-Man closed out the Sony press conference with a close to ten minute long gameplay demo that has received nothing but positive admiration from the enthusiast media and gaming…

WHAT’S BETTER: SPIDER-MAN (2002) VS. THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN

Now that I’ve finally confirmed once and for all that Spider-Man 3 is inferior to The Amazing Spider-Man 2, it’s not time to turn our attentions to what title is superior: Spider-Man (2002) or The Amazing Spider-Man. While both games share a common ground in that they’re products intended to tie into the release of a Spider-Man film, in particular the start…

WHAT’S WORSE: SPIDER-MAN 3 VS. THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2

Sorry about all of the Spider-Man themed articles as of late, it’s just that after the news last month about Sony leasing Spider-Man to Marvel Studios I went Spidey crazy and just started playing games I had never tried before (like Spider-Man 3) and replaying ones I had (The Amazing Spider-Man). While it might be more appropriate to…

COMIC GAMERS ASSEMBLE GAME OF THE YEAR AWARDS (PART 1)

The presents have been opened with care, or tore open with little to no regard in my case, and with New Year’s just around the corner, it means that 2014 is coming to a rapid close. This has been a big year for Comic Gamers Assemble and to celebrate I’m putting off the first ever…
