Only tried the demo of the first one but all the cool in skating had somehow withered away since last i did it, which was like 10 years ago :)

Skate to was so nice! And i think that Skate 2 will be at least as nice.

i know it wasnt trying to be tony hawks with stick control. but it just didnt do anything for me.

skating is one of those things that doesnt interest me at the best of times, but tony hawks managed to make it exciting just cos it was so OTT and exagerated (although its long past being a good series now). skate brings it back down to reality, and sadly for me, skateboarding in reality is about as boring as it gets.

"Different strokes for different folks" thats how they say. Personally I found doing a simple ollie ( not to mention advance tricks ) rewarding as hell .... Peace !

Hell YEAH!:D

Love to make the hardflip and then a rewarding grind. Can't remember what my favorite grind is called... You know the one with the tail. Anyways, Skate 2 is gonna rock! I think that Skate is for people that like real skating.

About the game


What's up?
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: Speaking of Spiders, I finished Technomancer yesterday. Fun game but dragged down by WAY too much backtracking and lack of different locations. (17 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: I'm not far enough into the game yet but I heard the game world is very interesting and full of great quests with multiple choices. Those kinda things sound great to me. (17 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog i honestly think they'd do better making something on a smaller scale. like an isometric action RPG. that spiders (developer) could do with going that direction too. (18 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it just looks like a typical game from them to me. like they bit off more than they can chew and the results are just mediocrity across the board. (18 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: the facial animations are bullshit yes, animations in general are passable, combat isn't nearly as bad as I expected though. The world so far has been great, very very nice indeed. (18 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it still looks all kinda of garbage though. lol (18 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker tearing was horrible, not to mention loading times. Plus it really doesn't look too bad either. Trees and foliage swaying in the wind, nice lighting. Good job PB. course all the jank is still there :) (19 Hours ago)
