E3 2018: Ghost of Tsushima is a samurai slasher for Sony's PS4

Starring the world's most iconic Super Hero, Marvel's Spider-Man features the acrobatic abilities, improvisation and web-slinging that the wall-crawler is famous for, while also introducing elements never-before-seen in a Spider-Man game.

Oh, and nearly 7 minutes of Spider-Man, including six popular villains.

Sony Interactive Entertainment and Insomniac Games have released a gameplay walkthrough of the E3 2018 show floor demo of Marvel's Spider-Man. The trailer showed nearly twelve minutes of gameplay. Worse, as you saw at the end of the gameplay video, Spider-Man is no match on his own in the one vs. five situation. I look forward to losing a ton of hours swinging through New York City (and fighting my way through the game's rogues gallery of villains) when it hits PS4 on September 7. Yes, this is a combo-based fighter not unlike a Batman game, but Spider-Man's agility and gadgets help speed up the pace of fights and add variety to the mix. At an extensive E3 presentation (two years after first unveiling the project at 2016's E3), the team gave examples of Spidey's powers, combat, and speed as he traversed NYC.

Smith finally had experienced the once-in-a-lifetime feeling Espinoza carries forever with him from the day he made history. In 2010, Smith lost the Breeders' Cup Classic aboard Zenyatta by a head, that mare's only loss in a 20-race career.

With this being set eight years after Peter became Spider-Man, he has probably beaten Harry's father Norman (aka Green Goblin) many times, perhaps even killed him.

From what we have seen in the trailer, there is a lot more on offer here than there was 12 months ago. Ultimate Spider-Man didn't play a big role in Spider-Verse, the precursor to Spidergeddon, so maybe this will be where he makes his big comeback.

And now Spider-Man for PlayStation 4 is coming, and it has exposed that gap in quality games in this franchise for the crime it is. With this in mind, let's get right to it.
