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.

    Sdarts @rayy: Yes, Larian Studios is great. And D:OS2 had a year of Early Access with constant updates based on the community's feedback. Also, something I forgot to mention, there's already many mods for it (2 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @Moonwalker: Yes, HDR is really awesome. But like with VR, it can't be shown in images or videos, you need to check it in person. Try all the games you can, it might give them a "second wind" for you. (2 Hours ago)

    rayy @Sdarts: Play it today at a friend house on coop. Definitely much better game than the first and the first was already really good. I was also surprise how well it plays with a controller. (11 Hours ago)

    Moonwalker directly compare it to SDR, holy shiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiit. I just checked Ghost Recon beta and Hitman, ooooh my. :) (15 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @Sdarts: No lies detected man, very true. I don't know why I didn't notice it before, then again my only way of seeing a HDR game was via a video or two. But now with my own games and being able to (15 Hours ago)
