The advertising campaign for the highly anticipated action adventure game Spider-Man 2 has finally begun, getting started with a live-action spot on the channel ESPN. While the broadcast may have been missed by many, the advertisement was nonetheless noticed by fans of the franchise, potential players taking to social media with the news. “This is live from PS5,” a newscaster can be seen saying in the advertisement. “The good people of Manhattan woke up to a gift from their favorite hero as he delivered a gang of criminals on something of a webbed platter.” RELATED: Spider-Verse Helped Change The Landscape…

The Dead Space Remake is one of the best remakes of all time. It’s got all the graphics and the story and whatnot. It’s clearly set the pace for 2023. 10/10. I’d assume. I dunno. I haven’t played it yet. It’s downloaded! It’s ready to go! But I haven’t had a chance to crack into it. Because I bought it at the same time as a $4 horse stroking game and played that instead.

The Elder Scrolls Online's new Necrom chapter is taking us to Apocrypha, Hermaeus Mora's Oblivion realm, which we previously visited in Skyrim via the Dragonborn DLC's Black Books. It was here that we fought against Miraak, the first Dragonborn, who was staging a coup against Hermaeus Mora. And since he's been there since the Merethic Era, he'll still be there by the time of ESO, meaning that we could bump heads with him. For context, Miraak used Hermaeus Mora's forbidden knowledge to fight back against his dragon overlords, all in a bid to grow in power and strength. However, he…

Pokemon is by far the game I have written about the most while at TheGamer. I haven’t done the maths, but it wouldn't surprise me if it was double that of whatever is in second place. Mass Effect or Red Dead, most likely. Pokemon isn't my favourite game by such a huge margin, but I love writing about it, and it seems you all enjoy reading about it. Most of what I write isn't trying to harvest hate clicks by talking about how Pikachu sucks either, but instead celebrating why Pokemon is so popular and zooming in on ways it…

Another busy work week in the gaming industry comes to a close, as today we received the news that many were probably expecting at some point this year – Marvel's Avengers will no longer receieve support after Spetmeber 30 later this year. It wasn't all bad news today though, as CD Projekt Red has revealed Cyberpunk 2077's Phantom Liberty expansion will be the biggest in its history, while Obsidian's head says he'd like to take a crack at another Fallout game before he retires. For all the details, keep on reading. Related: The Midnight Suns DLC Trickle Might Be Better…

GTA Trilogy: Definitve Edition was the game everyone thought they wanted – a remastered collection of some of the best GTA games in the series. Unfortunately, to say it launched in a buggy state is an understatement, as Rockstar itself was forced to apologize due to the state of the game at launch. Fast forward a little over a year and the game has finally released on Steam. You would have assumed that Rockstar used the time between launch and the Steam release to iron out all of the issues raised by fans before trying to sell the game again…

There’s an infographic floating around that shows all of the games coming in the PSVR2’s launch window – a vague time frame that could mean anything from a few weeks to an entire year after the VR headset hits store shelves. Around 40 games are on the way, and it's a pretty impressive slate. I know this, because I already played them all. The PSVR2 will have its flagship titles, which includes Horizon Call of the Mountain, The Dark Pictures: Switchback, and a VR conversions of Resident Evil Village and Gran Turismo 7, but every other game coming to the…

Happy Friday, everyone. It's that time of week again when we highlight some of the best and most important features on TheGamer. It's not been the happiest of weeks thanks to layoffs across the tech industry, but the rest of the news hasn't been much more positive. Some of the topics we've discussed this week include the allegations made against Rick and Morty co-creator Justin Roiland, the death of Google Stadia, a leak suggesting Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League will be a live-service game, and Overwatch 2's latest event being a total mess. Let's get into it. Related: Is…

Super Nintendo World Hollywood's food menu at the Toadstool cafe is being called the "downgrade of the century" in comparison to the Japanese theme park, with particular annoyance being directed at some of the desserts. Last week, Super Nintendo World Hollywood opened earlier than expected, giving lucky guests at Universal Studios the chance to check out the Mushroom Kingdom for the first time outside of Japan. Mario fans have been sharing their impressions of the park over the past few days and, while most of it is positive, there have been a few notable complaints. Related: With Fire Emblem, Nintendo's…
