Spider-Man is chock full of collectibles. You’re meant to grab tokens from fighting crime and clearing out bases to upgrade and build new suits for Peter Parker. My favorite collectible, though, is the mementos you find in Peter Parker’s backpacks around the city. These backpacks aren’t hard to find; they’re not…
Spider-Man has done the unthinkable and turned me into a completionist. I hate busy work and repetition, and I’ve never 100%’ed a game in my life, but Spider-Man’s various idiosyncratic collectibles changed all of that.
When you live in a giant city like New York, you stop noticing certain things. Spider-Man for the PS4 lets you swing 80 stories above the city, but it still takes time to indulge in little details that remind me of the life that happens all around that I usually tune out. One of my favorite details is the ability to…
A Spider-Man fan who asked to have a marriage proposal put into the new Spider-Man video game got his wish, but things fell apart for the couple and it may now be removed from the game.

One of my favorite things about Spider-Man isn’t the scope or the scale—it’s a little musical touch that I’ll bet took a lot of time to get right.
Spyro’s not just from Skylanders. The little purple dragon’s video games were a big deal on the original Playstation. That was two decades ago though. Our field team at E3 had a chance to play the upcoming Spyro Reignited Trilogy and it seems pretty magical.
Insomniac isn’t just making a new Spider-Man game. The studio is also working on their fourth VR game, which, like the others, will be for Oculus. It’s called Stormland. The Oculus blog describes the 2019 game as having “an open-world structure and an ever-changing environment bristling with unexplored islands,…
Sometimes when you see a skin or an alternate costume in a video game, you think “hey, that’s neat!” and don’t give it a second thought. Xavier Coelho-Kostolny, a 3D character artist at Insomniac Games, actually broke down the process of getting a cool piece of video game art from concept to your television screen in…
Spider-Man will be out September 7, developer Insomniac Games said today. Prepare to swing webs and so on.

There are virtual reality games that seek to offer bold and immersive new experiences. Feral Rites, from the Insomniac Games team behind Sunset Overdrive, is not one of those. It’s just a 3D brawler adventure from a slightly different perspective, and that works.
Insomniac Games was previously known for big games like Ratchet & Clank and Resistance. These days, they’re balancing those with smaller, simpler projects like Song of the Deep, a Metroid-influenced undersea adventure.
Your head controls the camera floating just behind 1920s adventurer Victor Howard, star of the new virtual reality Antarctic action game Edge of Nowhere. The white wilderness is all around you.
Insomniac also has some non-VR games this year. Song of the Deep, the studio’s GameStop-published underwater Metroidvania about a girl piloting a submarine to rescue her dad, now has a release date: July 12 for PS4, Xbox One and PC.
