‘Fortnite’ Spider-Man Web Swinging Is Better Than Avengers’ Spider-Man Web Swinging – Forbes

Published

 on


Fortnite has just debuted a new Chapter, and with it, they landed one of the most famous superheroes ever to lead their new season: Spider-Man.

Spider-Man rests at the end of the battle pass as a reward, but this is not the only place he’s shown up in the last week or so. He was also added to Marvel’s Avengers, the superhero looter, as a PlayStation exclusive character.

In many ways, it seems like Avengers got the short end of the stick when it comes to their deal with Sony to use Spider-Man in the game. The deal limits them to providing Spider-Man to only one portion of their playerbase, PlayStation players, splitting the game and annoying fans, while Fortnite Spider-Man is accessible through that season for all platforms, PlayStation, Xbox, Switch and PC.

Past that, it’s clear that Sony limited what kinds of costumes Crystal Dynamics was allowed to make for Avengers Spider-Man. By far the most common request was for the black symbiote suit, which the game doesn’t have. But guess what’s the page 10 reward for the Spider-Man costume in Fortnite? The symbiote variant, with other recognizable costumes to follow.

Not all of this is on Sony, however. Some things are just flat out better in Fortnite, like the overall character design I’d say. But what’s most noticeable is the difference in web-swinging between the two games. You can compare them below.

And here’s Avengers:

I spoke with Crystal Dynamics who talked about why they decided to let Spider-Man latch on to thin air on their maps, in order to prevent him from running on the ground in many of the game’s wide open spaces. I can understand that, but it’s more than that, as swinging is just a lot choppier and more static than what players got used to in Insomniac’s game, and now, what we’re seeing here in Fortnite.

Fortnite makes use of grappling-hook like physics and momentum. But in Avengers, there’s no momentum or speed build up, it’s a much more simplified traversal tool.

To be fair, web-swinging was essentially all Fortnite had to focus on with Spider-Man, making the new gadget which can be used to swing by all players. Avengers had the task of creating a full combat kit for Spider-Man, and I do actually think they did a good job and he’s a lot of fun. But it’s hard to avoid the comparison about web-swinging entirely, and how weirdly good it is in Fortnite compared to Avengers.

Spider-Man will get more costumes in Avengers, possibly MCU variants and maybe even the symbiote suit someday. Fortnite Spider-Man will get more looks as well, and technically, his web gloves weren’t supposed to go live for another week or so, and we’ll see how they work once they’re not accidentally activated then.

iPhone 13 doesn't support long-time 'Phone Noise Cancellation' feature – MobileSyrup

Published

 on


A growing number of iPhone 13 users have complained about the disappearance of the ‘Phone Noise Cancellation’ accessibility feature, which reduced ambient noise on phone calls when users help the receiver to their ear.

9to5Mac reported on the missing feature in December. Up till the iPhone 12, users could find and enable/disable the feature in Settings > Accessibility > Audio/Visual. On the iPhone 13, however, the feature wasn’t listed at all. Initially thought to be a bug, an Apple Support rep has now confirmed that the iPhone 13 models don’t support Phone Noise Cancellation:

“We have an update on this. Phone Noise Cancellation is not available on iPhone 13 models, which is why you do not see this option in Settings.”

The response came from a direct message thread between a 9to5Mac reader and Apple Support on Twitter. The reader told 9to5 that he’d worked with Apple and a senior advisor “for months,” eventually culminating with that message, confirmation that there’s no bug or software issue involved, and directions on how to file feedback about the feature.

It remains unclear why Apple decided to remove the feature. There’s a growing Reddit thread about the problem, but overall I haven’t seen a lot of discussion about it beyond that thread and the 9to5 article. Those who have issued complaints say that the removal of Phone Noise Cancellation has significantly reduced the quality of phone calls.

While I didn’t have an iPhone 13 to check, I do have an iPhone XS running iOS 15.2.1 and it still has Phone Noise Cancellation (as seen in the header photo). For iPhone 13 users, however, the only workaround so far seems to be using Control Center to activate ‘Voice Isolation’ when in a call.
