The deluge of blockbuster releases is nearly upon us. Fall/Winter remains a highly anticipated time of the year due to massively hyped games, especially with how many titles were delayed to this window and next-gen consoles coming up.

Unfortunately, we were soured on the recent beta with its numerous bugs, repetitive mission design, lackluster enemies, boring loot and unstable multiplayer. Forget about Spider-Man being exclusive to PS4 and PS5 versions – right now, we’re worried about online play even being stable enough for launch.
