Marvel’s Spider-Man • All Surveillance Towers activated • Bronze Trophy • Rarity 63.9% (Common)
Oh dear God. No.
Yes, I have discovered Spider-Man’s photo mode.
First, some housekeeping. As I said yesterday, I’ve switched back to my other PlayStation account, but I’m extra vigilant to make sure that the trophies that I use here are all unique. For instance, today’s trophy for unlocking all the towers still hasn’t been completed on my ‘original’ PSN account. In other words, I have a self-imposed ban on ‘double-dipping.’ That’s not all encompassing though – if, in this hypothetical, Spider-Man was to be released on Xbox, then I’d absolutely use the achievement twice. I suspect that this may have happened once or twice with AdVenture Capitalist.
Anyway, to cut a long story short: my blog, my rules!
I actually went into today’s play session with the single purpose of getting all the towers. I’d already played a fair chunk of the ‘intro’ missions with my original account, so today I really just wanted to focus on some of the collectable aspects: backpacks and the towers. It’s hardly the most efficient system in the world, but when mind-numbing catharsis is on offer in the form of a video game … well, if it was a hard drug I’d be permanently in rehab.
One of the things that is interesting about this game is how much of either the reimagined or expanded Spider-Man universe I don’t know about. That’s not hyperbole: while I’m absolutely Team Batman, Spider-Man was actually my first comic book passion and remains my main Marvel hero (I do hold a minor grudge against Sony for having the rights). My first comic of Spidey was versus the Vulture, which was a great insight into what antagonists in comics could be. I have an inkling that the Vulture will/does make an appearance in this game, but I’m certainly not there yet on either account.
And so, another trophy out of the way. I think, even after the accounts’ switcharound, I might actually be ahead of my old account, having completed a side mission and now all the towers, there’s a good chance I’m ahead on trophy metrics.
Either way, I’m certainly ahead on the good vibes!
