We are less than a month away from Spider-Man for PS4 and I have to admit, I’m a little excited. Actually, I take that back, I’m extremely excited. I played a demo during E3 and the attention to detail is absolutely amazing. I took to the streets to walk around, and a squirrel came down from a tree and ran around, doing its squirrel thing, just like a real-life squirrel.
That part really stuck with me, because while web-slinging, swinging, and scaling the New York City skyline is a pure delight, it fascinates me to no end someone at Insomniac took the time to create, animate, and program realistic squirrel behavior. It’s the little touches that add up to something greater than the sum of its parts, and I think Spider-Man is going to be excellent when it finally comes out on September 7. Squirrels.
