Last night, I was finally able to finish the Uncharted series. Or at least the first three console installments of the series, since the 4th and final one comes out next Tuesday. Now, I know I was behind the times, and that most people had already finished them. Though for me, it couldn’t have worked out any better, finishing it so close to the day it comes out. I got the three games when I first bought my PS4. They are fantastic, and I can't wait to play the 4th game. Though this post isn't about those games. No, it's about something that I heard on a podcast I listen to every week. Now, before I continue let me say that this topic was inspired by that podcast. The podcast is called PS I Love You XOXO. It's a PlayStation podcast by Kinda Funny. Matter of fact after you finish this, go check out their stuff out at Kinda Funny.com. It's pretty amazing stuff.
The question that was asked was, "who would be the possible new face of PlayStation?" The reason why the question was asked was pretty clear. Nathan Drake's career as the face of the PS consoles is coming to a close. So, who should the new heir of the PS be? Their conversation led to a very surprising person……SPIDER-MAN!! Yeah I know! How could it be the wall-crawler? I mean how completely random is that!? How could that be possible? Well, rumor has it that a studio called Sucker Punch may be developing a Spider-Man game exclusively for the Sony console. If you are not familiar with the studio, they are the company that developed and released the inFamous games. Below is a clip of the game itself.
Obviously, this is exciting to me. Not only as a Spider-Man fan, but of course as a video game fan, though probably more importantly a super hero/video game fan. Not only is this game rumored, but also a Telltale Marvel game. Telltale brought us: The Walking Dead, Wolf Among Us, Borderland, and Game of Throne video games. It was announced back in December that a Batman Telltale game was in development. All this is exciting news to people who love their super heroes and video games to collide. The thought of a world that has Spider-Man as the face of the PlayStation, almost makes me want to squeal like a young girl at a N'SYNC concert (that's still a thing..right?). Anyways, when you think about PlayStation main stays, a super hero doesn’t come to mind. It's Nathan Drake, Kratos, from God of War, Ratchet & Clank, and of course Crash Bandicoot. Any super hero would be great, but of course my vote is for the ol' web-head himself.
I will continue to update this as more information comes out along the way. There hasn’t been much news for the Marvel Telltale game yet, but when it does I'm sure we will have some thoughts on it. If you guys have any thoughts about this please share them with us. We would love to know what you think. Also, thank you for checking this out. If you want the Kinda Funny opinion check out the video below the topic starts around the 44 minute mark. All the best.
