Eh. I just finished that one last week. It was fine. Only one Screwball challenge gave me issues. Although, I didn't go for gold, only silver.

Also I unlocked the cartoon spidey suit and it's awesome. What's funny though is seeing it in cut scenes. It looked like I was watching Roger Rabbit or some other live action + animation movie. It was weird, funny, and kinda cool.

It's not a difficulty issue, her DLC challenges are dull and uninteresting and poorly designed, and the character herself is INCREDIBLY obnoxious -- her voice is like an icepick to the brain, and there's so. fucking. much. of it. PHOTOBOOOMB!!!! LOL HAAAAAASHTAG THROOOWDOWN!!!!!!

Honestly all the DLC challenges are an exercise in tedium, but the Screwball stuff feels like it was designed only for the sadomasochist set out there that revels in the sexual thrill of slamming their genitals into a car door.

I gave the game another shot, deciding to skip all the side stuff and just go for main game missions, and it got a lot better. I think the bases, the challenges, etc were dragging things down for me.
I had quit right before the Sinister 6 got together, and it got a lot better during that. Still not a fan of the puzzles or the Miles and MJ sneaky sections, though I liked the part you go through Osborne's penthouse - it's like a tour of the nicest penthouse in Manhattan.

I completely agree with you on this and apparently this is how they wanted to translate the character from the comic books, which make sort of sense as it is as obnoxious as people believe stereotypical millennials to be.

I get the ''boring" challenge complaint, but the voice? Turn the volume down .Lol

I guess in the same post where you apparently decided I said it was the volume, and not the content, of her voice that was the problem.

Target has this for $20, which may be my price point. I'm a very casual gamer and not very interested in games that eat up a lot of time farming or collecting. Can one stick with the main story, by and large, and still succeed? Thanks, it looks like many of you have enjoyed it.

Yes... it's not necessary to grind to finish this one. Excellent fucking game.

Re: Spider-Man (Insomniac Games) PS4 (9/7/18)

$20 is my price point too, for sure. Though knowing me, by the time I get around to playing it it’ll be a PS+ freebie The “Days of Play” sale is just a constant thing that runs through 6/17 right? As opposed to one of those things like what happens Black Friday weekend where deals quickly expire during the entire sale period?

I know responses to the DLC is mixed. I don’t care for trophy challenges at all but I like story DLC. Is it worth an extra $10 for just that?

Grabbed it at Best Buy for $15.99 (they had the same $19.99 price as Target, but my GCU is still active, so... $4 extra off!)
I will play this as soon as I finish Nier: Automata. So... maybe another year from now. (actually, maybe a lot sooner... my wife and kid really want to see Spider-Man in action.)

I finished the main story and loved it!

Grabbed the DLC soon after and I’ve been stuck in the subway chase ever since February 2019.

That was the last time I played it.
