Insomniac's Marvel's Spider-Man

Yeah I’m downloading them via so not sure what the problem is, though there is a thread on r/antivirus that has a bunch of other people saying the same thing.

I’m sadly in the opposite boat. I have RSI issues and can’t use a mouse for very long without my wrists, forearms and shoulders starting to become very painful. I need to for work, so can’t waste my pain-free mouse time on gaming :( (and I wear wrist braces on both arms at work most of the time.) Controllers don’t bother me, so they comprise 95% of my gaming. Locks me out of experiences I’d otherwise really enjoy, like strategy games and some sims.

I am in a similar situation. Years ago using the wasd keys started causing carpal tunnel like symptoms. I can type all day, but trying to use those those keys instantly starts causing problems. Adapted pretty quickly to using a controller, and software to mimic keystrokes let me play several games (including MMOs) that didn’t support controllers. Thankfully nowadays most games do support controllers.

Getting back to Spiderman, I appreciate that they added the ability to turn off QTEs. I generally loathe them.


Under the accessibility menu


Yeah, wow, that’s pretty awesome. I’ll probably start the game with it on, just to see what kind of QTEs they have in the game, and then turn it off when I get feel for what their intent was. I didn’t mind them in the 2013 Tomb Raider Reboot, for instance, but I think that’s the only game.

As a new owner of a PS5, digging the controller feedback, and having never play a Spider-Man game, I’m curious about this. Can I just buy Miles Morales on the summer sale now ($50) to get Spider-Man Remastered to enjoy both on the PS5? I have the basic PS plus tier if it matters.

It seems like both games are well received and it might be a good time to check it out as I enjoy the new system.

FWIW If you upgrade to the next tier of PS+ (Extra) Miles Morales is included.

Hey this worked GREAT. Thank you!

I just started playing, and I’m having a really good time with it.

At first I was annoyed with the combat, but that was down to me playing it the way I’d play an Arkham game. Spider Man fights totally differently from Batman, and it took me a few awful fights to realize that I was supposed to move around and do crazy stunts all the time. Doink!

Also J Jonah Jameson mentioned a nazi made of bees, so if I don’t encounter one of those at some point, I’m still giving it a bad review just on principle.

Loving this game so much, but is there a way to create another save file?

On PC, Press escape or one of the middle buttons on the xbox controller, select Manual save. I seem to recall the PS version also had that option.

There are also profiles that you can switch between at the start menu, if for some reason you wanted to have independent play throughs.

As an early 50-something grumpy gamer, the ability to turn off QTE and skip the stupid radio frequency puzzles is quite welcome.


Hahaha. Fuck these idiots that hate Pride flags. Good on the mod admins.

I can’t keep track of all this Sony stuff coming to PC. Is this standalone? Should I play them both, just one of them?

It is standalone. They’re both narrative-driven open world games. They’re very similar gameplay-wise. Miles is shorter and is a direct sequel to the first one. The central highlight of both is joyous traversal and big exhilarating setpiece battle scenes.
