Marvel's Spider-Man: How Insomniac Spun Its Web

In hindsight, it's easy to take for granted the success of Marvel's Spider-Man, Insomniac's hit game based on the classic character. It broke Sony's internal sales records, raised Sony's financial outlook, and helped lead the charge for an overall increase in game industry sales, according to the independent data analytic firm NPD. It all went so right for Sony and Insomniac that one may forget how it all could have gone wrong, how many times the webhead has been misused and mismanaged in sub-par material, and how badly he was in need of redemption.

Now, as the final piece of downloadable content is released, closing the book on plans for the PlayStation 4 game, we're taking a deep and expansive look back at its development--with access to the top creative minds behind the game. The story they tell isn't one of surefire success. Like many games, development was a messy process of discovery, compromise, and iteration. This is how Spider-Man came to be.

Spoilers follow.

Is Bumblebee A Transformers Reboot? Timeline And Ending Explained

about X hours ago from

While Bumblebee may not have a proper post credits sequence, it does tack on an extra little bit of story before the credits actually roll, rounding out the plot and setting up for sequels--maybe? Bumblebee's stinger (pun intended) doesn't have a lot of meat to it, but it does start treading some strangely murky water when you actually look at it in the scope of the whole live action Transformers franchise, which Bumblebee appears to have rebooted--emphasis on "appears to."

Needless to say, spoilers to follow--not just from Bumblebee, but from whole swaths of the Transformers franchise.

Bumblebee highlights the first major Earth-based interaction of Bumblebee the Autobot, and a human girl named Charlie who finds him as a VW Beetle in a junkyard. The whole story is set in the 1980s, not long after the "fall" of Cybertron to the Decepticon army. Charlie and Bee are chased around Earth for a while by two new Decepticons, Shatter and Dropkick, as well as John Cena, before eventually saving the day and--tragically--going their separate ways. Charlie gets a new car--a refurbished classic Camaro she and her late dad had been working on--and Bee, having effectively blown his VW Bug cover, takes a new alternate form of a black and yellow modern Camaro.

Does Aquaman Have A Post Credits Scene? We Explain The Movie's Ending

about X hours ago from

Aquaman may only have a mid credits scene--sorry anyone hoping for more Deathstroke teases this time around--but it makes it count if you know what you're looking for. We'll break it down for you right here, right now, but first: Be warned, obvious and major spoilers from the movie to follow, so please proceed with caution.

Black Manta fans may have found themselves just slightly disappointed at their favorite villain essentially being defeated at about the midpoint of the movie, but never fear: David Hyde is far from done in the franchise. The mid-credits scene follows him from where we last saw him, knocked unconscious and thrown into the water off the Italian cost, drifting on a piece of wreckage out at sea. He's not dead, but he's certainly seen better days. Fortunately for him, an unlikely ally shows up just in time to make a heroic rescue: Dr. Stephen Shin--you remember, that guy who showed up for about half a second on the news with some strong opinions about Atlantis, right?

Halo Infinite Will Feature Four-Player Splitscreen And Reach Inspired Customization System

about X hours ago from

During a livestream, 343 Studios announced more details for Halo Infinite, the upcoming sixth mainline entry in Microsoft's first-party series. Based on what was announced, it seems like Halo Infinite is still a long way off.

343 Studios is working on a new engine for Halo Infinite, which could push the game's release date to after 2019. We can expect four-player splitscreen in Halo Infinite as 343 is testing the feature in the new engine right now. During the stream, 343 Studios also announced the armor customization in Infinite will be inspired by the system seen in Reach. Also, players who reach level 152 in Halo 5: Guardians will receive a special reward in Infinite. The studio did not announce what that reward might be.

The stream did reveal a few details for Halo 5 as well. 343 Studios announced the team did not have much left to add to the game in terms of armor and emblem customization. Although it was not explicitly expressed, it was implied that post-launch development on Halo 5 is winding down as more of the team refocuses on Infinite's development.
