This week, starting September 3, one of the most anticipated games of the last two years is about to land and I don’t think I can contain my excitement. Don’t worry though, it might be exclusive but there are plenty of titles this week that aren’t, including an expansion that’s about to change a very popular shooter with a dedicated player base.

Our top pick of the week?
It’s Spider-Man okay, are you shocked? Are you surprised? What do you want from me? This game has been on our radar since we first heard it was coming.
A beloved character, married with a development studio with a history of stellar titles? You better believe it’s going to be a blast. Condolences to everyone who doesn’t have a PlayStation 4 because Sony are still killing it with those exclusives.
Now please excuse me as I’m about to vanish for weeks on end while I explore every nook and cranny of Manhattan as the Spectacular Spidey.
