Back to cataloguing your comic book collection, are you? Can't get enough of that Marvel magic? Racing the clock with a 100% playthrough of Marvel's Spider-Man and Miles Morales before the sequel swings into stores? Wait, hold that game controller! While your wearied thumbs deserve a gold medal for dedication, the reward may be incorporating RICE (Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation) rather than unlocking an extra in the imminent superhero sequel.
Swinging in like an unwelcome Green Goblin from your favorite neighborhood (or not-so-favorite in this case) Developer Insomniac, comes the zinger that'd douse any fervor. According to James Stevenson, the Community Director, when asked on Twitter if there were any in-game rewards for owning platinum trophies of completed saves from prior editions- No siree! That was it. A flat "There are not." Well, feels like a twist of Mysterio's illusion, doesn't it?
The story isn't entirely new. Miles Morales didn't hand out any goodies for importing saves from the previous installment either. However, players did notice getting an in-game message, something akin to, "Thanks for playing Marvel's Spider-Man, you've now unlocked a new suit and stickers". But, like Black Cat's elusive allure, it turned out to be a faux pas relating to a cut feature during development. Talk about playing games!
Nostalgia striking hard? It wasn't always like this. Once upon a time, long ago in the PS2 days, devoted gamers could avail shop discounts and crack open free weapons with save import bonuses while playing Insomniac's Ratchet & Clank sequels. Sure seems like current gamer folk were bitten by the wrong spider, for this feature is no longer extended their way.
Ironically, if you're at the final stretch of collecting artifacts in the previous chapters, you might wish to persist. Spider-Man 2 spoiler alerts are being flagged as influencers and reviewers are shipped advance copies of the game. While you might dislike the spoiler situation, a brief sabbatical from the social media vitals could work your nerves some good.
So, ready to embark on an odyssey rivalling Peter Parker's daily life? Dive into the enthralling world of the best Spider-Man games. And remember, "With great power, comes great responsibility" but alas, in this case, no stellar game loot.
