Images and Artwork of SKATE

Images and Artwork of SKATE

Finally something new is happening in the small world of the skating games. EA released these first official images of their "Tony Hawk killer", and it doesn't look bad at all. Maybe this will finally be a wake up call for the devs over at Neversoft too.

EA and screenshots.... hmmm.

I'll wait for proper gameplay footage!

If anyone has seen the leaked gameplay footage they know this game looks absolutely incredible.

If you thought the animations in Project 8 looked good, then oh my goodness wait until you see SKATE in motion!

i'll believe it when i play it

EA will probably put effort into this as they want to start a new franchise to milk.

it's about time something good came along. looks above and beyond the arcadey gameplay of the tony hawk series

you do realise that "leaked" footage isn't ingame? its a video, the guys aren't actually playing it, their bad acting should give that away.

Agreed, thats not ingame at all.

The idea here is to simulate a mix of drugs with horrific stutter and 5fps gameplay, and THEN try to skate.

Are you being serious? It's entirely in-game footage.

hopefully EA PORTS dosnt goof up

Saw the footage for this on the net somewhere (YouTube maybe). It looks to be quite an improvement on the TonyHawk games. It very well could be a killer, as you say.
Commented on 2006-12-01 18:12:19
I believe they are 100% real.
Commented on 2006-12-01 18:18:25
i can see it now, after you press start a message comes up saying you need to download a skate board for 300 ms points

The video wasn't in-game. THe camera angles give it away. It just has the appearance of them playing it

Have you ever seen a real skateboardvideo? Because this is the camera angle in all of the videos. And EA also said, that there will be a new camera angle in "skate".
Commented on 2006-12-01 20:51:25
Wow... that video is so fake its almost insulting.

ANYTHING else than that unrealistic CRAP that TH games are! The only skateboarding game that was realistic (as far as actually skateboarding goes) was Thrasher Skate and Destroy. That's sad considering that game was for the PS1 and was made in 1997!

I already like this game better and I don't even know anything about it. Even though EA is bound to screw it up, they could make this awesome! The look of this game is already ten times better than Project 8. IMO. AND.... it has some actual cool skaters. CHRIS COLE! That right there is reason enough to buy the game.

I hope they don't royally screw this game over.

Plus... it doesn't have the word Tony Hawk anywhere! (which is a good thing)

About the game


What's up?
  • Tiz
    Tiz If Joe Staten is working on H6, then they have a lot less to worry about as he can steer Halo's cinematic direction very well. (19 minutes ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz @amerakindesi: I think the planets are aligning quite nicely for Halo 6. They don't have to worry so much about multiplayer save for map design. Now they can focus efforts on the campaign. (23 minutes ago)
  • aphex187
    aphex187 Best Xmas game evah! :D [url] (1 Hour ago)
  • amerakindesi
    amerakindesi @Tiz: halo definitely relies more on individual skill, because every one is essentially the same character. halo is a still a great idea of a game. i hope they improve on "halo" for 6 (1 Hour ago)

  • droezelke
    droezelke @Moonwalker: I agree. Other than the Metal Gear series, he didn't really present something as good. And I thought MGS5 was ultra boring (4 Hours ago)
