    There still would have been problems. There were problems after COIE too, though they took longer to be clearly apparent. A lot of the issues the New52 had weren't only because of the halfassed...

    IGN was really harsh on the Spidey preview but the youtubers who cover this game regularly seem more impressed, and I get the vibe that IGN was going to take a dump on Spidey no matter what the...

    Episode 4 was pretty strong. Much better than the previous ones.

    They've really gotten away from the novels but I feel like, for the most part, the major chords are being hit and the character...

    If I remember correctly, RDJr's original contract ended with 3, and they weren't sure if he'd return. That's why 3 provided a viable jumping off point for him.

    I could be wrong but that's what I...

    Possibly? I'm very firmly anti-reboot so I dunno if I'm the guy to ask. :p I do agree that if you do reboot, you don't half ass it, you do a full on return to square one. In the immortal words of Ron...

    Amazed at the positive IM3 talk. But I agree, that film wasn't nearly as bad as some folk made it out to be. It's not quite on my list of favorites, but it's close. I always thought the Mandarin...

    If that's directed at me (I assume?) when I said "not a rehash of NTT" I didn't mean disbanding the team. I meant exploring the roster as they (hypothetically) stand now and telling new stories, not...

    I wouldn't reboot. They never actually fix things, they just make stuff more convoluted and create new problems.

    For $15 it's a steal. The main campaign is worth that at a minimum.

    Spidey looks good. Traversal seems better than I feared. Combat looks as good as expected.

    Agreed.

    I myself pull from Maggin in this. Clark and Superman are very different sides of the same coin, virtually two different people.

    I think they might do a version of the novel's prologue *after* audiences learn who the Dragon Reborn is. A sort of "now you know who, here's the what" kind of thing.
