Insomniac: "The leading publication from Marvel's New York is back with a fresh look and brand-new headlines! Daily Bugle Now dusts off the question: who is this new Spider-Man?"
Looking good :) I can't wait to play this
I prefer the new Peter.. But only getting the new episode
I liked the old Peter. I like the new Peter already and I'm anticipating Spider-man 2 on PS5
At the end of the day Insomniac are devs I trust to make great games. And I know Miles Morales and Spiderman 2 will be amazing. Super hyped for next month, cant wait.
Shame it's going to look like Miles is the mentor in this now after the face redesign
No one should be threatening the devs, obviously, but this really was a nonsensical change.
I think it looks worse in the here and now, but when Spider-Man 2 comes out, people will understand why insomniac made the change. They obviously have grand plans for the sequel and I don't think they would've made this decision unless it truly made sense.
Oh god no However can't let some nut jobs going too far downplay legit fan criticism. It's strange though because going through Reddit, Youtube, Facebook and Twitter, especially the developers profiles, most people seem quite civil. Disappointed, annoyed and the like but not "I'm going to f***** hunt you down and kill the shit out of you* type. @buffig I'm really hoping they recast Peter again for Spiderman II after all this, they can say "you'll see why we made this choice" all they want but after seeing it in action I'm not going to change my mind and I doubt many others are, we've seen it, it's not good, most people don't like it, so for the sequel I hope they recast. Recast to someone who either looks like the old model or bring him back.
@foxtrot - Their facial capture tech wasn't being used to its full potential with the old model. They claim the needed to closely match the capture targets face to get the most realism. We can't possibly know how that will eventually look, because we haven't seen it yet. But Insomniac has. And no doubt they were sat in a studio and had a very difficult conversation, whereby they resigned themselves to having to make this change now, in order to reap greater benefits in future. They absolutely won't have just thought, this will be a laugh, lets just swap out the face. Honestly, when the time comes I think people are going to be impressed. It's the only explanation and I'm willing to give them the benefit of the doubt. They know their tech best
@JEECE There is not BUT in situation right this.
"... legit fan criticism." It's not legit fan criticism, it's childish bellyaching over a character model.
Implying this is a scenario where you should threaten people who worked on a product because you don't like something they did? I'm all for being critical of something, especially if it's not your cup of tea, but there are lines you shouldn't cross. Threatening other human beings over something so petty is one of them. Voice your discontent over the change in character appearance if you wish. No one is making you like it. Just recognize that the people who worked on that are people too, and should be treated with a certain degree of decency as is expected from any reasonable adult.
Such a dumb decision from them.
What does it change? Nothing. The gameplay and the story will still be the same.
Who cares how he look, most of time he'll have a mask on. People need to stop bsing about small things when we have real sh!t in this world to bs about.
Get over it already
Nope. Don't have to If a developer makes a silly choice, you tell them, lets not just force any old shit into our mouths and tell them it's good, this is why many developers become arrogant as they think they can get away whatever they want and someday in the future if the worst happens people like yourself will cry "How did this happen". Be more like Sucker Punch, we didn't like the Cole redesign, they admitted they were wrong, that fans opinion counted and they changed back. It made them more humble.
I care more on the developers visions for the game. As long as it doesn't carry certain or personal agenda that would hindered or affect the game.
Yea I'm with you, it's the most unnecessary face to change in the game. I'd have given the face swap to MJ.
Still wish that they blended both face models to find a happy medium. Would've been a better idea imo.
Seriously, such a dumb and unnecessary change. Also judging by all the downvotes it seems the fanboys are out in full force to defend their darling Tom Holland but missing a chromosome look alike.
I'm ready. Bring it on.
Looking forward to this - that gameplay they showed looked great, I'm loving the new powers.
That's cool, lol. Seriously.
Peter please leave your mask on.
All these so called gamers, trying to be reasonable, but intentionally disrespect the developer, the actor, and everyone involved... some of the most disgusting things have been said for such a small issue that the developer have legitimate reason for. "Too emotionally attached and can't accept this new actor", you know what, go ahead, skip the game, skip all games from insomniac, skip ps5, the less toxic people in the community the better. The earth doesn't need people like them, let alone a smaller gaming community. *Threaten to kill, saying people faces are weird AF... only f'd up people would say something like that.
It's worth noting that the majority of people who say stuff like that never actually follow through with threatening said people, and the vast majority of those who actually do don't actually intend to kill the person, though it just goes to show that they're all bark and no bite. On the other hand, to say that making light of something that would actually make people fear for their lives is beyond insidious would be an understatement. Also, let's not forget the 0.01% who are actually dangerous, and are the reason why threats need to be taken seriously, hence why someone even insinuating they're going to threaten someone else is in bad taste. Plus...aren't we mostly adults here? A modicum of maturity goes a long way. There are places for people who have the mentality of a child and make violent threats, and it is not in functional society, that's for sure. Well...unless those people are in fact children, in which case, where are their parents?
VOCAL MINORITY. That's all it is. Just a small minority of fans who scream and cry. Ultimately, it won't change a damn thing
The ones worried with the face of peter should be worried much more with otber things. Maybe are also the ones that have problems with a screw?
IMHO....about the face, most will have a preference for the first one they got attached to. New players will like the new face more because they weren't attached to the old one. Changing things seemingly arbitrarily or unnecessarily can be a source of agitation. But, if you give it a chance, it will probably grow on you. All IMHO of course. If they say the change was necessary, I believe them.
I really like the new look. The old one never sat right with me.
I hope they have a self aware Easter egg about Peter's new face or ima be slightly disappointed
this looks awesome. Insomniac are special devs. Should be a great gen.
One of the many great games Sony is offering us with the ps5 can’t wait for the other studios to show their next projects
It says something to me when I am considering playing Miles Morales before Demons Souls, a game I have been wishing for for years. Insomniac are so talented and these Spidey games are pretty irresistible. As for the face change, I simply dont understand people even thinking twice about it, honestly, how does this even register as a blip with all this real world stuff going on?
I was in a similar mindset as I hadn't actually played the original Spiderman game (Plus I'm a huge souls fan) but I'm about 9 hours in now and Miles Morales is definitely going to be the first thing I play on launch day. I guess it helped I didn't get a chance to be attached to the original face of Peter Parker but even so it seems a bit silly to get heated over it, still the same amazing game at the end of the day
