In this video, Activision's Jay Boone explains how the Wiimote and Nunchuk controls for the upcoming Spider-Man 3 game will enable players to do whatever a spider can. Some of the controls seem natural, like mapping combat to both hands, and some seem more ... interesting, like using both a Wiimote movement and a button press to swing on a web.

We don't want to get off on a nerd tangent here, but -- no, scratch that, we want to get off on a nerd tangent. Requiring a button press for web shooting would make perfect sense for the comic version of Peter Parker, with button-activated web shooters, but not for the movie Spidey with organic webs. We know we're being picky, but developer Treyarch seems to want to simulate the web-shooting experience.
