As someone who grew up reading Spider-Man comics from '97 onwards, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 costume was like seeing the Joe Bennett/Mark Bagley style costume brought to life. Quite literally amazing. Don't know what they were thinking with the costume for the first ASM (or that film in general) but TASM2 was like seeing some of the comics I used to read brought to life.

It's cool that they're going for the '60s look with the eyes for this one, but I'll always prefer "Bug-Eyed Spidey", same way I prefer "Big-Eared" Batman.

I agree, the costume in the fist ASM sucked. I get it was a homemade prototype and whatever, but it still sucked.

If they want a throwback, good on them. But when Miles Morales comes in the picture, I'm expecting the costume to come with him. His is the closest thing to that original design. Superficial reasons aside, I'm happy to see Spider-Man again. He's still my favorite superhero and I enjoyed all entries from both the Raimi and Webb incarnations. Even if they were ridiculous at times.

I'm expecting good things from the Tom Holland version. Marvel Studios has been pretty good at their casting so far.

You need a paid email account or one registered with a business or education institution, so I used the one I had for a domain I registered. It let me set up an account back in October but I couldn't post anything, so it was mostly useless before it got proper "approval, which for some reason it didn't get :-s

It's overrated. You aren't missing much, trust me. They're a very negative, elitist bunch. I join in on certain discussions such as for Dark Souls, old PS1 games and Nier, since GAF love those but anything else is a big no-no; really just use it to view the most up to date news on there (they are usually the first to know anything game news related).

It's a long way to Shenmue 3, so decided some female companionship may not be a bad thing, and after some encouragement from my friends, I joined one of these online dating contraptions. I decided to go the honest route, bit of a tech guy, like all the usual stuff, and also like video games. As a joke, i put in the profile that if a woman on there knew what Shenmue was and had played it, id probably get down on one knee. Ha ha. El oh el. Smiley face.

One female messaged me saying she had played Shenmue and loved it! Ryo Hazuki is amazing! So I replied for a laugh, asking her if she knew where any sailors like to hang out?

She clearly had used Google, since she sent me back a lot of expletives how I was lying about being straight, and that i was bi if I wanted to meet sailors, and also that I was implying she was a bit of a slut asking her where to find them.

I deleted the app off of my phone straight after.

Look on the bright side, at least she fancied you enough to pretend she was familiar with a video game she knew nothing about ;)
