For a long time now, folks have been craving a followup to the PS2 classic Spider-Man 2 that treated the traversal with the same spirit of joy and motion. Leave it to Insomniac Games, makers of Sunset Overdrive, to take up that particular torch with their 2018 release of Marvel’s Spider-Man. And hey: the movement options are really good in this game. But, uh… the rest of the game is a thing too. How does it handle issues like law enforcement, fascism, environmentalism, homelessness, and… oh gosh. This is a lot of heavy stuff. They are gonna fumble the ball, huh? Well… yeah. Yeah, they are.

Join Jen and Six on this spoilercast as they tackle what the game gets right… and what it gets really uncomfortably wrong.
