Cannot agree with you more, man. They make Desmond such an awesome, likeable character and... he gets such a sudden ending. It's like being in a car, being drove down a road smoothly then having the brakes slammed harshly and being thrown out onto the ground. That's how it felt. The ending should have made you feel for Desmond, for the fact that he might (and does) sacrifice himself, he should have hovered his hand over the sphere. But nope, boom, he's dead, credits roll literally seconds after.
Agreed completely! Some of the complaints about this suit are just ridiculous. Sometimes I had to make sure we were talking about the same thing, they make it out as if he's running around in a pink leotard with the spider symbol on his chest... it has all of the elements of the original design with a new twist, there's nothing wrong with that. I definitely don't want to see basically the same suit in every reboot.
...Maybe that's because Arkham City is a game for consoles and this is a mobile game?
(If this is a spoiler for you, apologies, but he gets the web formula from Oscorp)
And the exploded view states that there's a "PELLET CHAMBER", so the "webbing" must be in some sort of polymer granule state and is heated up by the inner-workings of the webshooter, before it's forced out of the nozzle.
Sort of like a tiny hot glue gun.
Looks amazing! An open-world Spidey iPhone game, oh man! :O
Is this set after the movie like the console versions? Or does it follow the movie's storyline?
The Ang Lee Spidey origin is just rumours, there's nothing in the trailer which suggests that this happens. Richard works on the spider that bites Peter/the formula that's used on the spider that bites Peter, nothing else.
"An irradiated spider bit him when he got too close, and overnight Parker had undergone a metamorphosis, gaining strength, speed and agility." - From a bio on the back of a TASM figure. That this would have been worded differently if the spider simply activated his powers.
