'Raimi Suit' Added To Spider-Man As A Free Holiday Gift From Insomniac

Insomniac Games just delivered a great holiday gift for Spider-Man fans. The suit worn by Tobey Maguire in Sam Raimi's Spider-Man film trilogy is available today as a free download in Spider-Man. Fans were dismayed that this popular suit wasn't included in the core game, and again voiced frustration over it not appearing in any of The City That Never Sleeps downloadable content.

We don't know if there were any licensing hurdles that prevented it from being released earlier, or if Insomniac just wanted to give it away free as a holiday gift, but we can all be thankful that it's finally here and we no longer need to see gifs of Tobey Maguire crying on Twitter.

Wait... Hold that thought. Why isn't the black Raimi suit in the game yet? INSOMNIAC!

Discarded Designs From Pokémon's First Generation Unearthed

During a recent broadcast on Japanese network NHK TV, the network aired some images they received from Pokémon developer Game Freak made during the development of the first Pokémon games, the generation that created fan favorites like Charizard, Pikachu, and more. These images show in-progress Pokémon designs that later became the monsters people know and love today. Iteration was clearly key, however, as some of these designs look a lot better now.

A Japanese Twitter user screencapped the images, but it was broadcast originally on NHK.

Now the character is available for season pass holders and individual buyers alike to to the battle android for a spin.

If you have no interest in the other season pass characters who have yet to be detailed, you can pick 2B up for $5.99 on her own. She uses a fighting style reminiscent of the game's katana weapon, mostly focusing on that but also occasionally bringing out her fist weapons as well. The Soulcalibur subreddit has been going back and forth since her release trying to decide if she is overpowered or not.

For her super, 2B uses the pod's charge attacks to spear the enemy from the ground. She also has a two-player skin which Nier director Yoko Taro has named 2P, giving her a different skin color and a white dress. Nier: Automata also recently got a Game of the Yorha edition announced with a special message from Taro alongside it.
