first_imgSpider-Man: Miles Morales is out now on the PlayStation 4 and the PlayStation 5, and it continues the story of the titular Afro-Latino teenager, who first revealed that he had powers like Peter Parker in a post-credits scene in Marvel’s Spider-Man. And just like Insomniac Games’ original Spider-Man game, Spider-Man: Miles Morales also has two post-credits scenes. The first of them bears no connection to what happens in the new Spider-Man game and instead builds on the post-credits scene from Marvel’s Spider-Man, setting up Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 in the process. The second post-credits scene touches upon the ending of the Spider-Man: Miles Morales story and functions as an epilogue.Review: Spider-Man: Miles Morales Is Hanging by a Thread- Advertisement – – Advertisement – Warning: spoilers ahead for Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales.Spider-Man: Miles Morales post-credits sceneThe two-and-half-minute long Spider-Man: Miles Morales post-credits opens at New York’s Trinity Church. Miles looks out at the city before crouching down and placing the “Spacebound Young Researchers Award” — he won it with former best friend Phin Mason — on one of the outer platforms of the Trinity Church in her memory. The church was a favourite childhood haunt for the nerdy duo, as is revealed during Spider-Man: Miles Morales when the two meet there to find some middle ground.It’s clear that Phin’s death is deeply affecting Miles. On one hand, she was the Tinkerer, the leader of the high-tech criminal army the Underground that had brought war to Harlem. But at the same time, she sacrificed herself to save Harlem from the blast of the Roxxon reactor. Miles brings up his conflicting thoughts on a call with his mother Rio Morales and wonders why Phin would do that, despite losing her brother Rick to Roxxon’s experimental tech, which led her on her vengeance quest to begin with.Miles’ mother gives Miles some great advice with her response: “People are messy. Take your uncle Aaron [Davis aka the Prowler]. He’s the reason [Roxxon CEO Simon] Krieger is in jail, and he helped us get people out of Harlem. But every time I look at him, I think of all the pain he put your dad through. You don’t need to make a judgment on Phin’s life, mijo [my son], or her death. Just remember who she was and why you loved her.”Spider-Man: Miles Morales costs Rs. 3,999 / $50 on PS4 and PS5. Warning: spoilers ahead for Marvel’s Spider-Man.Spider-Man: Miles Morales mid-credits sceneThe minute-long Spider-Man: Miles Morales mid-credits sequence takes place entirely from the first-person point of view of Harry Osborn, who was seen in the Marvel’s Spider-Man post-credits scene. Harry is still floating in that green liquid and still has a black-coloured Venom-like symbiote crawling all over his arms and legs. Unlike last time, he seems to be conscious, with the radio — talking about the events of Spider-Man: Miles Morales — filtering through the glass cabinet Harry is being kept in.For those who’ve forgotten why Harry is in a suspended state, that’s because he suffers from Oshtoran Syndrome, a rare heritable neurological disorder, just as his mother Emily Osborn. Harry and his father Norman Osborn lost her when Harry was just 15, and after Harry’s condition became critical, Norman decided to pursue an experimental medical treatment that would take several years. Harry agreed and that’s how he ended up with a symbiote attached to him.- Advertisement – In the new Spider-Man: Miles Morales mid-credits scene, Norman soon walks in and the doctor gives him a quick report, noting that Harry’s vitals are good and brain activity is normal. Norman laments that he’s been in there a long time and then asks the doctor to pull him out. The doctor protests but Norman is having none of it, and demands him to get Harry out “now”. Norman then walks towards his son and nods his head, in a way that suggests he’s missed him. Harry is his only family, after all.spider man miles morales tinkerer phin mason spider man miles morales tinkerer phin masonPhin Mason / Tinkerer in Spider-Man: Miles MoralesPhoto Credit: Insomniac Games- Advertisement –last_img read more

first_imgThe University of Wisconsin women’s hockey team improved to 8-1-1 overall (4-1-1 WCHA), with two hard fought wins over Minnesota State at the Kohl Center this weekend. The final score of both games was 4-2, but the Badgers had to come from behind twice after the Mavericks jumped out to 1-0 leads early in the first periods in both contests.The Mavericks wasted no time getting on the board Saturday as freshman Lisa Edman scored 2:50 into the game. The goal came when Wisconsin lost the puck in its own end and Edman fired a shot past goaltender Jessie Vetter. “You don’t want to get scored on in the first minutes of a period or the last minutes of a period,” head coach Mark Johnson said. “We talked about that, and those are things we need to be aware of, and we need to make stops so it doesn’t happen.”The Badgers’ Jinelle Zaugg struck back quickly with a goal of her own later in the first period. Zaugg scored just under seven minutes into the game, with assists from junior Erika Lawler and sophomore Meghan Duggan.After the first period, in which the Mavericks outshot the Badgers 13-12, UW took control of the game and allowed only five shots on goal in the last two periods.”We had a slow start,” senior defenseman Emily Morris said. “But once things got rolling we really clicked, and things were making sense again, which was nice.”Although Wisconsin controlled the puck for most of the game, the score remained tied through the second period and most of the third, and it looked like the game might be headed for overtime.At 15:55 into the third period, however, freshman Hilary Knight leaked out on a breakaway and received the puck from teammate Alycia Matthews with only the goaltender to beat. Knight skated in front of the net and put the puck through the five hole for what would prove to be the game-winning goal.”I [wasn’t] thinking about anything,” Knight said about the breakaway. “I’m just trying to see how she moves, and see where I want to put the puck. She didn’t move, so I just put it through her five hole.”Wisconsin freshman Olivia Jakiel added another goal late in the third period to seal the victory for the Wisconsin. Zaugg led the team in scoring with two points on the night, while nine other Badgers had one point apiece.Just one penalty was called all game, which was a welcome change from Friday’s game for Johnson and his team.”[Friday] night there were 15 penalties called; tonight there was one,” Johnson said. “Each game has it’s own little story, and it has it’s own little journey where you have to figure out how to win the game.”The Mavericks got off to a quick start in the series opener Friday as well, as Minnesota State senior Lindsay Macy scored 13 seconds into the game after Wisconsin gave away the puck behind their own net. “It is obvious we made a mistake, and they capitalized on it,” Johnson said.The Badgers responded shortly after the Macy goal, tying the game up 35 seconds into the period when Zaugg received a pass from Knight and skated all the way up the ice before firing a shot from the right side of the net.”The nice part of the first goal was we responded really quickly,” Johnson said. “There were two goals and two penalties in the first 40 seconds of the game. You don’t see that very often.”Matthews, who recorded the game-winning goal and two assists, led the Badgers in scoring Friday. Zaugg also added an assist to go with her game-tying goal.Penalties were a problem all night Friday for Wisconsin, as the Badgers accumulated nine for eighteen total minutes, including three by Morris. The nine infractions were a season high for UW. The Mavericks were penalized just six times on the night. “We uncharacteristically took more penalties than we normally do,” Johnson said. “That really takes the flow away, takes your chemistry away, and it just makes for a really challenging game when you have to kill nine penalties off.”last_img read more
