Again, I can’t believe I’m doing this, but gamers are bizarre about the water in Spider-Man 2, apparently remembering how stupid they looked after the predecessor’s infamous “puddle gate incident.” Apparently not.
Spider-Man fans saw the first Spider-Man 2 in a long time at the PlayStation Showcase a few days ago. There it was finally confirmed that Peter would get the symbiote his suit and a number of new abilities that would come with it. The footage ended with a cinematic set piece in which Miles and Peter sway over the Queens River and are chased by lizards. While most fans were impressed with the sequence, some seem to have chosen to repeat history and focus on minor graphics. detail.
Twitter user Dream_Walker shared a small clip of a gameplay reveal of Miles swimming “Look at the water! That splashy VFX, no physical interaction, Miles doesn’t even look wet…not what I expected from Insomniac’s PS5 exclusive game. This game clearly needs a lot,” captioned it. Please give me more time. Please delay. The tweet has more than 1,500 likes at the time of writing, suggesting that this is an opinion a handful of gamers are anxiously sharing.
Dream_Walker’s tweet is the most popular tweet sharing their dislike of water, but they’re not the only ones tweeting. Not only is the comment section filled with other gamers who think the water looks bad, some even claim that: Insomniac is stretched thin by PlayStationbut Twitter user Natalya Natflix is also pretty frustrated, tweeted, “Spider-Man 2 saved #PlaysationShowcase” – F. Are you kidding!? 🤡! PS3 water physics!”.
This oddly specific complaint ignores the fact that Spider-Man 2 is still in development and the gameplay demo shown is still in development, but it’s a very It is also a fine point. If this were an Aquaman game, it would certainly be wise to focus on water, but be wary of mere console warfare here. Thankfully, the comments at the bottom of both posts are also full of Spider-Man fans shouting complaints and not taking them seriously.
Interestingly, this isn’t the first time gamers have disputed the appearance of water in a Spider-Man game. In fact, Spider-Man fans are probably feeling like they’re back in the terrible days of “puddles.” For those lucky enough to not remember Puddle Gate, it was shown in one scene of the first gameplay reveal with gamers trying to rage about Spider-Man graphics. It was a ridiculous controversy caused by pointing out that the puddle was not a Spider-Man graphic. It is detailed in the final game. Yes, it really is a puddle.
