i think i played the skate demo more than i played the last tony hawk, i used to be a fan of tony hawk games but they have strayed so far from the point, which is SKATEBOARDING. i think that skate has brought this back in a whole new way, the controls at first were weird, but now they feel so natural that when i played this demo i was all messed up. you would think that after doing a game for so long they would be on top and have a niche, but to have a first timer like skate come out and show off a game better than any you have done, thats sad. what happened tony hawk? aw well skate is here to the rescue!

I've also been a big fan of THPS and Underground (except underground 2 and on)
the games are just horrible now, but they had a good thing going on before underground 2 started. R.I.P. THS Series. A new skateboarding game has been conceived. :) Skate.

it's funny, because tony said on camera (when he was here in Germany for GC 2007) "I don't know, Skate has this completely new control scheme which might not feel right to people. TH has the same control scheme it's been using for years, so people will most likely stick to that."
after his comment they showed people playing skate and everybody stated how cool this game and how realistic the gameplay is. they stated that they looked forward to this in the TH series, but now, Skate rocks.
I'm also getting Skate with some other friends of mine and we're leaving Tony behind... for the first time ever.

About the game

What's up?
  • Tinks
    Tinks yeah I would hope so. The fact it's $60 right now in this stage is rough though (41 minutes ago)
  • Phaethon360
    Phaethon360 I'm assuming since it's 1st party there's a decent chance of it eventually becoming good. (50 minutes ago)
  • Tinks
    Tinks so I'm thinking I may wait to buy Sea of Thieves when it actually has good quest content. Game is REAL shallow (1 Hour ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth like in dark souls where i mapped run/dash/roll to one of the paddles so i could run (b-button) while controlling the camera (right thumbstick) at the same time. (6 Hours ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth you can feel the difference in material quality in every part. 3 different swappable thumbstick heights is also nice, and the programmable and swappable trigger pads beneath are also nice in some gams (6 Hours ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth @droezelke: i had the standard one pad. i liked it, but then it was in an (ahem..) accident. So i had to get a new one anyway. the elite is really nice. d-pad is very good. good grip (6 Hours ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke @Melmoth: Standard. The elite is too expensive. I can buy multiple games for that money :-) (6 Hours ago)
