Hey Batman what did you do for Fathers Day yesterday? Oooooh right....

I’m quite excited for the upcoming Amazing Spider-Man game, which looks set to follow the usual formula, but with some drastic modifications. Spidey is back in Manhattan, the camera view is more dynamic, and the combat has taken quite a few cues from the Arkham series of Batman games.

Sure, it looks like a blatant imitation, but at the same time, this isn’t always a bad thing to actually do. See for yourself, as Spidey demonstrates some eerily familiar combat gameplay in the video below, while making web-slinging look as vertically visceral as it was meant to be.

I’m ready to give Beenox a second chance after their last Spidey game, Edge of time, was an underwhelming success. How about you? The Amazing Spider-Man launches on every current console, next week Friday.

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia's M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!
