Marvel’s Spider-man [2018 Game] (The Movie)
While this video was edited in HDR, due to technical difficulties on Youtube’s end, for now I can only make the SDR version available. If I get the HDR version working at a later date, I will pin a link to it in the comments below. In the meantime, the HDR version is available for download for Patrons at the $10 level or more. EDIT: HDR version now available at the following link:
If you’re unfamiliar with what I do, my goal is to try to translate the story of the games I like into movie format, making them enjoyable whether you have played the game or not, or even if you don’t play video games at all. There are plenty of great stories out there that a lot of people won’t see because they don’t play video games, and I hope to make these movies in a way where anybody can fully understand and enjoy.
But even if you do play games, these movies offer an experience that can change the way you view the story as well. When playing the game, you’ll likely be splitting the story up into several different play sessions, so you probably won’t remember all of the details of the story from start to end. While this movie may be too long for a single sitting for some people, it’s still likely to keep the story fresher in your mind than when playing the game. I always notice new things when working on and watching my movies.
Unlike some channels, I don’t just slap together all of the cutscenes and call it a day. Doing that simply wouldn’t give you the full story, and this isn’t just a compilation of scenes, it’s a full movie. I include whatever gameplay I feel is necessary to tell the story, and do it in a way that’s enjoyable. I will cut down wherever I can, but I won’t cut down so much as to cause plot holes or confusion for the viewer, and I try to make sure my cuts maintain a good pacing as well.
Normally I usually also go the extra mile and try to remove on screen HUD elements, whether via game settings, editing, mods, or VFX. While there were a few settings which minimized the number of on screen elements visible in this game, there were still a LOT left over, and unfortunately the frequency, placement, and nature of the button prompts and other HUD elements simply made it impossible to remove. While there were a few small things I did here and there, most of the HUD remains intact in this one. Some suggested using letterbox to hide them, but I tried this too and it simply did not work. Things pop up all over the screen, the HUD moves around, and doing so would also eliminate verticality and block out spider-man a lot of the time. It just wouldn’t be a good solution. So unfortunately I wasn’t able to remove the HUD this time, but hopefully developers will offer more options in the future to make this more doable. I love the customizeability of Horizon Zero Dawn for example, or the full out No HUD mode in Uncharted 4 (hoping for the same in TLOU2)
Thank you for watching, and make sure to subscribe if you want to know when I upload more movies. If you want to support me further, I also have a Patreon as I mentioned earlier:
Every supporter gets access to near daily updates during the production of the movie, with estimates for movie length and release date given with every update. I also have higher tiers that allow for downloading the full quality versions of my movies, HDR downloads, and even early access to an earlier cut of my movies while I’m still working on them.
