Thoughts on New Pokemon from Sun/Moon and Spider-Man PS4 Teaser
With all the reveals going on at E3 this year, only info on two other games besides The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wind have really caught my attention so far. Those games would be Pokemon: Sun/Moon and the Spider-Man PS4 teaser that was revealed. I figured I'd give my thoughts on both of them in this one entry. So let's start with Pokemon:
A few new Pokemon are revealed in this new trailer. Pikipek is probably my favorite out of the reveals. Then again, I've always liked the flying type Pokemon one can usually always find at the beginning of any Pokemon game, and Pikipek continues that trend for me. I'm not that big of a fan of Yungoos, however. I don't like how its jaw looks. It just looks weird to me. As for Grubbin, it looks cool IMO. I like the parasitic look it has. It makes me wonder what it looks like when it evolves.
Then there is Magearna. With the ability it has, I bet it will used in a lot of double battles when the games come out. Plus, it being a fairy and steel type makes it even cooler IMO.
But I think the biggest reveal in this trailer is obviously the Battle Royal. This looks like it will be a lot of fun to play. I'm already looking forward to trying it out when Sun/Moon are released in November. Hopefully the Battle Royal will be as fun as it looks here.
Now onto Spider-Man:
I've stated before that I'm not the biggest fan of exclusives when it comes to games. I understand why some companies make some of their games exclusives, but that doesn't mean I have to be happy about it.
I bring this up because this new Spider-Man game is a PS4 exclusive. As I'm someone who doesn't own a PS4, this means I won't be playing it unless I get one. (Though I will admit that the PS4 has had some good games come out on it over the years that I've wanted to try out, like this Spider-Man game, The Last of Us, the Uncharted games, and so worth. So I may think about getting one in the future...)
Anyways, as for the game itself, this Spider-Man game looks great. The music for it sounds good too. It definitely got me pumped up for the game when I first heard it. Also, in the description box for the video, it says that this is an experienced Spider-man who has helping the city for awhile. Though I imagine the game will probably give a brief summary of how he got his powers, I do like that this isn't an origin story for Spider-Man, as everyone and their mother probably knows how he got his powers by now.
Probably the biggest reveal in the teaser is Spider-Man's suit. I've never seen him wear a suit like this before. Then again, I'm more familiar with the suits we wears in the movies than what he wears in the comics. Regardless, I really like the new suit. I think that its color scheme looks really good on him. It actually kind of reminds me of Samus Aran's PED Power Suit from the early stages of Metroid Prime 3: Corruption. I don't know why, but I just get that vibe from it when I look at it.
Overall, it looks like it will be a really cool game. If I ever get a PS4, I'll probably try it out myself.
P.S. Serious question for those who know more about Spider-Man than I do: Has Spider-Man ever worn a suit similar to the in this trailer in the comics? Like I said, I haven't seen one like it before and I'm wondering if its a new suit first introduced in this game.
