Skate 2 trailer

EA released this new trailer of Skate 2 unveiling the story of the game. Yes, the story of a skating game, and even more incredible is that this trailer isn't bad at all.

Even if this was just skate with some new stuff added I'd be more than happy but this looks like it will have a whole lot more than that. Cant wait.

Nice to see a game that delivers a story about an interest that doesn't necessarily have to do with swords and gunplay. I love them both, but in the real world there are adventures that don't involve weapons. I like weapon games like the next man, but a Sim like drama with an involving story line complete with a real quest and ambition is always welcome. I have a great game idea and story line concept that I know would rock the videogame world. I just wish I could propose the idea to a dev/publisher that would listen.

I missed the first even though I thought the demo was ace,because I knew 2 would be really good,and that's why I'll get the game day one.

"...and even more incredible is that this trailer isn't bad at all."

How is that even a surprise for you? The first one was the best sports game in ages, best skateboard game ever made and the 2nd one will be even better. This is my most anticipated game of 2009 and will probably be my GOTY 2009. No other game has kept me interested for as long as Skate 1 has. Best value for my money ever.

Now if someone would only make a snowboard game that treats the sport with the same amount of authenticity and respect...

As much as I liked this I would have liked to see more of the mechanics of the game.

Smashing your board off pedestrians anybody?

Anyway, I really liked Skate so I think this will deliver.

About the game

  • MrWhite
    MrWhite that's a pretty big deal, as its probably the biggest stumbling block for the tech. (41 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Stuff like inside out tracking and eye tracking, as well as motion sickness solutions should be in place. We've already got a product in development that claims to have eradicated that already (41 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite The potential of it is massive. More so than what traditional gaming now is. Second gen is going to be very interesting. (43 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite We're sort of being spoon fed bit sized "experiences" that either work or don't. I suppose that's part of the freshness of it, though. I just wish some big devs would get more involved. (44 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @KORNdog: Ironically, though, the VR scene is also playing it safe. Too safe. There's not enough big risk titles like RE7. (45 minutes ago)

    GriftGFX I can't really wrap my head around being dismissive of indie games. That's a pretty broad label. (3 Hours ago)
  • nostradamus
    nostradamus put and end to corridor/cinematic/c utscene/qte/playforyousoyouwon'tmissathi ousoyouwon'tmissathing ng experiences, and start to see more games like Prey/BotW and the sort. Nuts&Bolts is an awesome game, as well. We need N&B2 (5 Hours ago)
