CONTEST- Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions (PS3)

Posted by Luke Brown On September - 23 - 2010

We’ve got a brand-new copy of Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions for the PlayStation 3 to give away. You like Spider-Man. You like video games. Find out how to win the game below.

Here at the Quarter Bin, we enjoyed our time with Activision’s latest title, Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions. Now we want you to enjoy it as well. For the next week, we’ll be running a contest for you to get your own chance to play as four vastly different incarnations of the web-slinger in a game written by current Amazing Spider-Man scribe Dan Slott. All you have to do is leave a comment on this article explaining which incarnation of Spider-Man is your favorite. Do you really enjoy the Amazing Bag-Man? How about Spider-Armor? Perhaps you get your kicks from the original Steve Ditko-era super-nerd. We just want to hear about whatever flavor of friendly neighborhood wall-crawler you enjoy most.

The contest will run until 12 PM Eastern Standard next Friday, October 1st. The contest is open to anyone in North America. We only have a PlayStation 3 copy of the game to give away, but if there are enough entries, perhaps a less impressive, though equally spider-ific prize will be arranged for second place. Good luck.

    I’d say the Spider Armor just because it looks awesome.

    My very favorite version of everyone’s favorite wallcrawler. Wow, that’s a tough one. I’m going to choose the Bendis/Bagley high school angst Ultimate Spider-Man. I’ve always loved ‘ol web head but over the years he was growing stale for me. Then along came Ultimate Spider-Man and changed everything. Yep, Ultimate Spider-Man was and still is my favorite. Thanks – Ron

    I have to concur with Mr. Kirkley above. I am a big fan of the ULTIMATE version of Spiderman. It did a nice job of getting back to basics and centering things back on character development as opposed to plot and events. I am still a sucker for a good ole ASM story, but the Ultimate version really breathed some new life into my favorite of the Marvel/DC characters.

    I’m going to go out on a limb and say Earth X’s Peter Parker is my favorite incarnation/interpretation of Spider Man. What happens when his driving core belief (“With Great Power . . .”) becomes null and void? The middle-aged, disillusioned Peter Parker was a striking deconstruction of the character. I wish it was explored a bit more.

    I suppose Spider-Girl doesn’t count:) In which case I like 2099 for a different take-I really like the geneticist angle.

    Spider-Girl could totally have counted.

    I’ve been reading Spider-Man since Marvel Team Up #172 from the bygone year of 1982(hey kids, look the old guy is talking!) I’ve read damn near every variation from comic to t.v. to movie and beyond. My all time favorite writer is J. M. DeMatteis, with arcs such as “Kraven’s Last Hunt”, “The Child Within”, “Death of Vermin”, the incredible Spectacular Spider-Man #200 and the ever lovin’ Frog-Man!

    As far as which incarnation of Spider-Man I feel is the best, honestly, I’m going with Ben Reily. When you get past the padded ending of the Clone Saga, which was great in the beginning, so-so in the middle and abysmal by the end, what it left us with was a fresh start Spider-Man, minus any hocus-pocus. Iconic comic characters are a double-edge sword, on the one hand it’s great that a legacy like Spidey will live on to well past my kids time, however it severely limits what can be done. The main person may leave for a bit(ala dead Capt America) or undergo a temp change in philosphy( ie. Hal Jordan/Parallax) but within a small window of time, he/she will go back to their mantle.
    No one will ever write a story where a thug shoots a massive hole into Peter Parkers’ head; we know this. But when Peter became to dark and convoluted with a wife and kid, he was nicely swept away and Ben became that “y’know, this guy COULD die” hero. He was what we loved about Spider-Man, hard luck champion of the people and funny but with the genuine air of danger to his adventures. I loved the character, and miss him. Maybe if they had just done the “rip it like a band-aid’ bit with Peter’s departure, we might still be reading about good ol” Ben…hey, it worked for Wally West :)
