Spider-Man and Wolverine Talk Emo!

I was recently able to get my hands on a copy of Spider-Man: Web of Shadows and I have been pretty disappointed overall. Among all the problems, the writing is particularly bad...Just listen to this little discussion on "emos" and you'll see for yourself.

That's fantastic.

Posted by pause422

....wow. That is fucking terrible, but at least in an almost funny kind of way. I wanted to like that game, but from what I've been seeing it is definitely a disappointment.

The actor who voices Spidey sucks but Wolverine sounds tough like always.

Posted by Systech

I don't know if this wins or fails, which is strange because I can usually tell very clearly. I'm glad that Wolverine made that necessary comment, but he could have went on with a long rant. It would have made it funny.

Yeah I've been hearing that the dialogue sucks big time.... it's really a shame. They should start hiring professional comic writers to do these dialogues.

That shits too retarded, but funny.

The guy who's voicing Spider-Man is painful to listen to.

Posted by Verdugo

That has to be the most hilariously lame dialogue I've heard in a while, I almost thought that was dubbed over!

Posted by Kush

It's true...this is one of those cases that it's so bad it's actually funny. It's also weird that they are trying to make fun of something current.

I don't see what's wrong with it. Made me laugh.

Posted by GamerGeek360

That's just hilarious.

People actually got paid money for that?

About $3.75 ...that's enough for a Big Mac and fries!

I'd say that's about $3.75 too much. Particularly for Spidey's voice actor. Why not get the guy from the cartoons back instead of that dweeb.

I'm just going to say this...that video shows some of his better work.

What the hell was the point of that?

It was an "optional" conversation you can have with Wolverine about the black suit...What's sad is that some people may never hear it.

What's not real?...the video? That is 100% real that I took out of the game myself. It's kind of rubbish isn't it.

You can do both at the same time...but don't cut your wrists over it, this is nothing to go all emo over :P
Posted by Dudacles

The spiderman voice is completely terrible, an abomination.

Edited by zitosilva

There's just something very wrong with Wolverine talking about emo kids...

Posted by mnB

Nah was actually talking about the voice acting Kush. Just sound way out of character. The Spiderman voice sounds directly fake :S Some of the worst stuff I've heard in a long time.

Right... Thanks for giving a good reason. I don't see what's all the hate for Spider-man's voice. it suits him well. There are a couple of times where his voice sounds bad, but majority of the time it's very Parker.

He's a nerd, and the actor playing the voice sounds very nerdy... What's wrong with it...

Why would I be kidding? Everyone keeps scoffing and whining and yet no one is actually giving a reason as to why they dislike the voice actor. I thought it suited him because it was a stereotypical sort of nerdy voice, yet still funny. Why do you think it didn't suit him?

Not only does the writing suck, I heard the story, and graphics were pretty lacking too.

Well it was a solid 7.5 - 8.0 game all around. Pretty much depends on how much of a Spidey fan you are.

He sounds very whiny and trust me, that video right there is showing some of his better work from the game. I will make another video showing some even worse VAing if you don't think that is awful.

I would say the game is a solid 6 at best (and I am a pretty big Spidey fan)...and a 6 is being generous from what I've played so far.

Did Jeff Gerstmann voice Wolverine in Web of Shadows?

Wow, watching that video makes me wonder if the rest of the game is that way. If so I seriously want to play it now - that was fucking hilarious.

If he did he was probably intoxicated and thus, wouldn't remember. Though I bet Jeff loves to poke little dudes in tights, not that there's anything wrong with that.

And people rag on Sonic games? That was horrid. The Spider man game on the PSone was the best.

Because recent Sonic games are worse...and way, way creepier.

I've played pretty much every recent Spider-man game and am a huge Spidey fan and I still didn't think it was that bad.

Then I guess you'll love this game like a Star Wars fan loves the "new" trilogy.

I hate the new trilogy... The only one I like is Revenge of the Sith. Although, I can't handle watching the old trilogy anymore either, unless its from time from time.

Phenomenal... Or should I say...venomenal?

He sounds like an embarassing, whiny, obnoxious little bitch. That's not what Spider-Man, Peter Parker, or either of them in black suit mode are like are they? And the guy overacts like those emo kiddies you keep hearing about on those gosh darn internet things. Did you hear about the internet? And the emo kiddies? Them emo kiddies on the internet. So how's about that Juicetube site? You can juice me, I'll juice you back! Hehe!

Wolverine isn't much better, or well, a fair bit better really. The writing is worse than both of them combined though. Holy crap... Why do game designers insist on pretending to be writers?
