Does it take some time to get used to web slinging controls? I played for few minutes and started to get it, got to the cops location at least, but it wasnít easy. Any beginners tips?

Itís easy. Once you get the controls down, the game is pretty much a breeze, until you get to the repetitive DLC stuff.

Ok. Thanks. It wasn’t so easy for me as of yet. As I said, played up until police are getting shot at part. But, did some how make it there. Over 1,000m or whatever. So, maybe that’s a good sign?

Itís just a bit of time to get used to swinging and attacking. But once you do, it gets much easier. I vaguely remember struggling with the Rino stuff in the beginning. It slows down considerably after that intro.

Once you upgrade some of your web slinging abilities, it gets better. I struggled a bit starting out. There's a section where you chase pigeons and it gave me fits until I slowly mastered the controls.

It’s like any new game. You just need some time to get used to the controls.

So glad they only put one pigeon-centric thing into Miles Morales.

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

thank goodness for snow days.

played some more of this today. still hard, but i was getting the hang of things. i can't believe the first mission is beating Wilson Fisk (Kingpin). that's a tough ride from the get go. luckily, i got passed him and stopped a couple crimes and fixed 3 police towers.

was having fun, got a little sea sick with the web slinging. like i would move my head to the swinging as if it were some VR thing. kinda funky, but i'm getting it.

are those circuit and wavelength puzzles peppered throughout the game?

Yeah, that's a classic Insomniac thing. They do the same stuff in the Ratchet and Clank games as well.

Just wait until your first meeting with Shocker. That took me awhile.

Is it a must to thwart every crime you hear about on police radio when youíre on your way to a mission? And, how come when I go to the map, it keeps telling me itís offline?

You can skip those side battles unless you want to pad your numbers.

So you don’t gain tokens or whatever to upgrade suit and gadgets?

You get crime tokens and you can try to clear out crimes on each section of the map, but it gets monotonous.

Gotcha. Thanks. So just stick to main story? Why can’t I view the map? Says offline.

As I said, you can get stuff if you fight those battles, but it’s not a must. A lot of it is just how you like to play open-world games.

Maybe little of both then. Good to know not mandatory like so many other games force upon you.

So there’s a Shocker and Electro? Two different villains.

Does one use actual electricity and one use static cling?

fuck you werenít kidding. Chasing this guy down is going to be the bane of my existence. I only got one triangle button on him, the rest has been a chase that I havenít had enough exposure to game to figure swinging controls yet. I need more time dammit.

Guess I canít quit him and do some random crimes and get stuff and more experience, huh? I hope to get him tomorrow, but damn. Is it just one big chance sequence?

I do like the game and the stealth mechanics. I donít know how I got all silent takedowns in Fiskís art gallery. There were a lot. That wasnít easy, but distracting by shooting some webs came in quite handy.

I also like how the combat is very similar to Arkham games.
