A brand new Spider-Man game is on the horizon, one that has everyone’s attention. Puddle dramas aside, I’m really looking forward it too. In preparation, I decided to look back at the last Spider-Man game I genuinely enjoyed. Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions was the first game in a long time that moved away from doggedly basing all interpretations of the character on the movies, and went back to plucking its inspiration from the comic books from which the character was made. Helping me remember why I loved the character so much in the first place.
So the remake of Gears of War is out on the Xbox One this week. And I know what you’re wondering; Am I going to rip on it for being an unnecessary remake, that I have some long standing dislike of Gears of War or some other negative or passive aggressive nonsense about the series. Well I’m not going to do anything like that. I like Gears of War in fact, back in the day I spent a significant amount of hours playing it online. So does that mean I’m going to go out and buy this remake? Hell no I’m not.
