Well, I guess we just gotta wait and see if the gameplay can compare to the last game.

I sure hope that kid doesn't bail. I imagine his legs would snap into about 50 different parts.

In school I knew several skaters that skinny, but most likely EA's taking the cartoony approach with this game, like the "Street" games and that R2R rip-off.

Given the low Resolution of the images and cartoony style, is it possible that these images are Skate it for Wii and not Skate 2? The environments do look a little too good for a Wii game. Any ways, I hope they DON'T take a cartoon approach for skate 2. Skate's realism was something I really enjoyed.

Skinny people tend to bounce better.

Interesting. blatant cash in, but if it entails more Skate games then it's all good. I just hope this doesn't follow the way of the Hawkster. Yearly iterations which drift further from the core design.

Speaking of TH, I read not long ago that they aren't bringing one out this year! Looks like Skate really ruffled Neversoft's feathers. Fingers crossed they knuckle down and bring us a worthy TH game.

Saying that, Skate2 will have to do something special if EA are going to want my money again.

One thing is for sure, now I've tasted the Euphoria engine (GTAIV), I want all games that could use it, to use it!

*prays it will be in Skate2*

Very nice, they could make the best skating game ever if they do it right. There's no cash-in here any more than making a sequel to the first game anyway, so I've got no idea what you're talking about Archaos...

munkieNS you've got me confused. What don't you understand about my post?

Hey I have no qualms about that, nearly all sequels exist for money making reasons. Especially when we're talking about an EA owned game..

Do you think that Skate It is not a cash in?

    droezelke @Melmoth: No, there won't be games this year with realtime ray-tracing (ie only 1 light source). (12 minutes ago)

    droezelke @Melmoth: I don't know who it was here, but my message was for him. He thought that games using this tech would be released this year. Also nVidia hinted at it, but they meant that it might help... (14 minutes ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth as for generational jump in performance. i think for nvidia it's been about 1.5-1.7x increase the last 4-5 gens. with the pascal cards (10 series) being around 1.7x performance of maxwell (900series) (43 minutes ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth showing the tech in question. So if they took a GTX 1060 (which is mid-tier now) and tailor-made a demo to show it's full potential, it would look much better than the latest games out there. (49 minutes ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth which is both due to the hardware used to run them being years ahead in raw performance (not features) and equally important, the demos being a very polished very small slice with a strong focus on (51 minutes ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth Which isn't unlikely when looking at the past 20 years of tech demos and the adoption. it's important to state that using the technology isn't equal to looking as good as the tech demos. (52 minutes ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth are supposed to be a accurate representation of how full games look the next year or two. Nvidia only said the tech would be in GPU's this year, and most likely in games shipping as soon as fall 2018. (55 minutes ago)
