Finally, a good article from CBR.

Do any of you really liked Mary Jane's appearance in the game or would wish for, alteration/modification for the sequel? Me honestly, she was looked okay but I hope they pretty her up more for the sequel, particularly giving her her long loose hair and three bangs.

Holy mother, truly its a tough choice.

AC Odyssey, Monster Hunter World and Celeste are obviously discounted.

Its a threeway battle between God of War, Spider-Man and Red Dead.

Personally I think Spider-Man will lose to God of War and I truly DO NOT KNOW if either Red Dead or GoW will win. Its a deadlock.

I know it's way too late, but I just got the game last week and finished it today, what a great story, top notch writing and voice acting, I am very pleased with this game and most of all with its story, just awesome.

  • The death of May was handled really well and I like that they added that she knew Peter was Spidey for a while, made their last scene so emotional and well handled.
  • The interactions and dialogue between Otto and Peter in their last fight, with Pete saying how he wprshipped Otto and wanted to be like him was very heart-wrenching
  • That last kiss between MJ and Peter, I was waiting the entire game to see that.
  • Norman is keeping Harry on some kind of tank and Harry reacts with some kind of tendrils, wonder what that is.
  • Miles showing Peter he could climb walls and Peter doing the same afterwards was pretty cool.
  • I really hope they make a sequel to this game

So, the final DLC for Spider-Man PS4 released, Silver Lining.

Silver Sable is a badass. They mentioned a lot about Symkaria and further developments on superpowers between Oscorp, Sable International and Hammerhead's faction.

Yuri Lowenthal's Peter Parker and Spider-Man continues to be top notch here. On Mary Jane who is Spidey's partner in crime, the two have some neat dialogue exchanges. My nitpick with this version of MJ continues to be the same, wherein she's not MJ but rather Lois Lane in Lana Lang's body. I like that she and Peter work together and have some good on the job chemistry, but at the same time, MJ's mostly all business, she's like a workaholic. Its necessary for MJ to still have some of her fun party girl traits together with her responsible and capable and fully developed self but that's missing here. So yeah, its good to see MJ working with Peter but at the same time, it doesn't feel like she's Mary Jane Watson.

Also there is a major character's fate is revealed here.

@ursaber I hear

Mary Jane takes an oversea assignment to cover a war zone. Anything else on that? Do they have a conversation about it? Hearing she's all business in this DLC has me worried there's no time for any personal interaction about MJ's big decision here. I theorise MJ's just trying to give herself the kind of life experience her boyfriend is used to in order to be a better partner for him, but do they have a meaningful moment?

She's all business in the entire game with tidbits of her tackling personal matters and being witty. Or haven't you notice in the entire game how all she's interested in and on about is her journalism.

MJ is covering the Symkaria Civil War and her passionate articles regarding that convinced the Bugle to send her there to cover it. Peter is hesitant at this but he knows full well he can't stop MJ from doing this since its her job, plus she makes a good case about her assignment saying her coverage will bring attention to the troubled nation and maybe save lives. She says goodbye with a heartfelt I Love You and Peter states he misses her as soon as the call ends. They don't meet face to face in the entire DLC much like the previous one.

This MJ, as I've stated before is Lois Lane (in Lana Lang's body) but called Mary Jane Watson. And she also resembles a lot her USM cartoon version who wanted to work and travel over seas. In fact, PS4 MJ is exactly like USM cartoon MJ but with her romance to Peter being an actual thing as opposed to just friends.

BTW, Black Cat makes her return here.

No need to overreact. People will comment just about any opinion. It cannot be stopped or censored.

TBH, I prefer Felicia over Mary Jane in the game. I like the idea of Peter and Mary Jane together, symbolically, but I truly don't like this version of Mary Jane since the only thing she and Mary Jane Watson share is their name. I truly do hope they make some personality and appearance improvements in the sequel. Mary Jane says "tiger" prominently, not in every sentence but in every encounter or conversation with Peter, she is highly capable and responsible but she's not a workaholic, all business type of girl. She inserts flare, sass and lightheartedness into her manner much like how Peter always needs to crack a joke, albeit... better. Mary Jane likes to have fun even while working, Insomniac Mary Jane seems like she's working endlessly on her career full throttle as if to get a Pulitzer Award. And in that I see Lois Lane, not Mary Jane.

But worry not, the comments are irrelevant when you know for a fact that its not a break up. The game will likely be set over a year or more into the future and we will still see Peter and Mary Jane together.

What thoughts might I ask, the ones about Mary Jane in the game resembling Lois Lane more?

Christmas Merry to you.

@infantfinite128: Yep. The Lois/Mary Jane comparison. It's a great write up.

I haven't played the game to judge for myself, but so far it seems that the Spectacular Spider-man animated series is the only adaptation to get Mary Jane right.

I'm currently re-watching Spider-man 2. While the MJ is underwhelming, it's still such a good movie. It's my favorite Marvel movie.

This game deserves every piece of praise it gets.

Except the fact that they portrayed Felicia as a total a**hole, but to be perfectly honest, she kinda sorta is in certain situations, so this gets a slight pass.

That figure is insane. Its for a single console. That is nothing short of phenomenal.

Felicia was great. It was how she tricked Peter at the end that was the a hole move.

BTW PunyParker, what did you think of Peter, MJ, Miles, May, Mr Negative and Otto, AS CHARACTERS in the game.

To me, Peter was excellent, Mary Jane was well portrayed but felt more like Lois Lane in Lana Lang's body.

Eh, I wouldn't bet on it until the Fox merger goes through, just because Marvel wants to make it clearly that they have control of that property again before letting other characters into the game. (And even then, characters that would work in a New York setting like Luke Cage and Daredevil haven't made appearances either.)

Then an old bag or an F4 briefcase containing the FF suit with Peter referencing an adventure with the F4. Something like "hah, this suit, I wore it when I was a team member of the F4" or something along those lines. Then Peter goes on to say "I wonder when they'll be coming back from the Negative Zone" or something.

The best thing this game archieved is to give a CORRECT characterization of Peter Parker to newcomers, and remind to old-heads, like me, that people still know what makes Pete great.
Because we had been drifting away from his good qualities, in all media, for too long.

Glad this thing exists.

Not bad!

I like the chin and jawline of the cosplayer better than in game MJ. I didn't notice the piercings in the game.

For the hairstyle I would give MJ two bangs as opposed to one massive bang covering most of her forehead.
