This past week, PlayStation finally revealed some anticipated gameplay footage of Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 during their PlayStation Showcase 2023. News regarding this game was sparse, with only a teaser showing the introduction of Venom in the fall of 2021. The twelve minute gameplay was an amazing sneak peek into what we can expect from this game in the fall of this year. With this anticipated sequel release, players can expect an expanded map as well as being able to play as both Peter Parker and Miles Morales with Peter donning the classic symbiote suit, adding special symbiote abilities to beat down foes with. Words can’t describe how epic this game looks so go check out the full extended gameplay and story trailer here on Marvel Entertainment’s YouTube.

The release of The Lord of the Rings: Gollum this past week comes with a barrage of initial reviews and thoughts and so far it’s not looking good. On Steam right now, there are 113 reviews and only 30% of the reviews gave it a positive rating leaving its overall rating at ‘Mostly Negative.’ Some describe this game as “boring and underwhelming” with “linear gameplay.” Fans of the Lord of the Rings franchise might want to stray away from the game as of now or wait until a sale to finally pick it up. Will you be getting this game this week?
