All Access Weekly is a short look at the happenings and goings on in the various world of geekery and pop culture. This week's episode takes a look at E3 and that ever so Amazing Spider-Man with writer Dan Slott.

Wow is that an amazing (no pun intended... really!) looking new arc for the Arachknight! The Lizard finally looks like the big bad he should- and hey, Morbius! Always a good time when the living vampire shows his ugly face.

As far as Stephen Totillo and his look at E3 goes, I can't say I disagree with his assessment of Nintendo and Sony at the show. I don't think the big N is going to be blowing anybody away with their offerings, but new Mario = success. If it doesn't, then Nintendo's got some very big problems indeed.

And Sony? Yeah, they've got some serious issues all around. I'm thinking they'll at the very least tempt and tease a little of the next Playstation console, though I also doubt they'll actually show anything on the floor. Maybe a tech demo- everybody loves tech demos!

One thing Stephen left out was what Microsoft will be doing. Although it's a huge reach to think that they'll have the neXtbox (or whatever) at E3 in any form since the 360 is doing so well right now, I still think they'll have a very solid outing just off of the strength of Halo 4 alone. Kind of a big game. While I certainly agree that Assassin's Creed 3 will be beyond monstrous this year, H4 is looking darned impressive and should make a big splash when more of it gets some spotlight (and talked about).

It's going to be a very big show this year on a lot of levels.
