I wonder how the game will handle Venom. I love the idea of playing black suit spidey and getting a bunch of Venom abilities, but we'd lose that at some point, so how can they compensate for that?

Ping system with Miles and Gwen, maybe coop mode or something along the lines of gta4 or like “it takes two/unravel-2/a-way-out?

Hope this means coop with the two Spider-mans/men.
Thats what it seems to imply to me as well. And I got the impression that the main villain will be Kraven, that that is who the voice over was...

Could be but I doubt this will have co-op. I think it'll be similar to what we seen in the Arkham games where the A.I. assumes control of the other teammate and you'll have options for combo moves via some sort of button prompt.

I was hopeful for coop because I can imagine that potentially being a ton of fun, but the blog post refers to the game as a single player experience...

The Devs want to tell another good story and and co-op might prove difficult or add challenges to that goal, not to mention all the work that would need to be done to add network functionality/matchmaking. Co-Op for some sort of team-up game outside this franchise or a separate mode ala Ghost of Tsushima- Legends would be awesome though.

I just hope they don't try and friendly-up Venom. He's a psycho and a murder machine but over the last few years they have painted him as some sort of anti-hero. They even turned Flash Thompson into a heroic version of Venom working for Shield coining him with the very original hero name of..........Agent Venom.

I'm looking forward to this and know the Devs will knock it out of the park. BUT...................

My dream Marvel Game would be an ARPG featuring the X-Men with all heroes on your team being playable something akin to what JRPGs have been doing for quite some time. I know we have the Marvel Midnight Sons game coming but that's turn-based and I'm not that big of a fan of that style of gaming.

I was thinking that too but who knows? Maybe even single player where you can just swap back and forth between the two or something. Personally co-op wouldn't do a thing for me but I know a lot of other people enjoy it.

Did you ever play Marvel Heroes? That game was awesome so I agree on the ARPG.

I didn't get a chance to play Marvel Heroes. I admit I have a certain bias against Free to Play games even though I have yet to put in any significant time in any of them. But, I'm a big fan of the Marvel Ultimate Alliance franchise especially the first one. The sequel was fun but was stripped of many of the features and depth of the first one. I'd like something similar running on current hardware.
Would Miles have the advantage over Venom with his “spider sense” and or his shock?
I'm not sure if Miles has any advantages over Venom. Miles does have a couple unique abilities but Eddie Brock along with the Symbiote have what's been described as a higher awareness that surpasses the Spider-Sense of any of the Spidermen. So its doubtful Miles could sneak up on Venom and he certainly can't overpower him, at least from what little I know of these characters. Peter has only been able to defeat Venom by using high frequency sound which is Venom's weakness or by being clever in some way. Venom was created by bonding first with P. Parker and acquiring all his abilities and also taking those abilities to a higher level because well, its a space parasite that looks like something you might cough out if you had a bad chest cold.

Hopefully they aren't going to be a Marvel studio.

Would really suck if they aren't doing something with the Sunset Overdrive IP

Wouldn't mind it. They have proven to be a top tier studio so anything they make will be fire right now.

First game running in real time to reach CGI like quality graphics in Spiderman 2. Huge.

Nice! It probably won't look anything like that on release but I'm sure will be incredible, these next gen only games mid to late in the console lifecycle will look amazing.

I thought that honor went to the latest Ratchet & Clank game. I haven't played it yet but the footage looks incredible.

Or did you mean first "Open World" game to reach this level of graphical fidelity? There's a strong case for that. :wink:

Ratchet and Clank looks amazing too. Some parts look just as good as the CGI film.

I never read comic books or anything, but I watched the animated show as a kid and I feel like I remember one of the things about Venom was that he didn't even trigger Spider-man's spidey sense which was one of the ways Venom had an advantage over him and could get the drop on him that way.
