SKATE wins.

only thing good about this game is the guitar hero III demo coming with it. like come on, did they just start making thing game wen they found out SKATE was being made just so they can prove that they are the best? because this game looks rushed and very bad.

the animations look very fake and it actually looks worse then the last tony hawk. my brother is a hardcore tony hawk fan and even he chooses SKATE over this.

wow... they f***ed this one up good. it looks so stale and bland. the way you just pop up from the ground no ollie no nothing looks stupid. Im going to buy SKATE the 12th no doubt about it but if Im going to pick this game up or not is 100% up to how the demo plays.... but judging by the vidoes it doesnt look good.

Im sorry but after playing SKATE, Tony Hawk is dead to me. Proving ground is the same Tony Hawk game with Nail the Grab feature. The gameplay is still the same old over the top skating. SKATE blow any TH game out of the water. This is coming from an ex skater, This is just my opinion. Sorry Tony Hawk, there's a new skateboarding king, and thats my right THUMB.. haha j/k

Well.. some of us actually prefer the arcadey combo action of THPS. This franchise has declined seriously throughout the years though, so saying Skate (or I'm sorry, SKATE) is better may not be that big of an achievement anyhow. I'm still going to give it a fair shot though, no harm in playing a free demo.

    nostradamus @Megido: errr... no. it has long cutscenes, yes, but there is a lot of meat to the game compared to say, MGS:TEA where you beat the game in less than 10 hours and there still is a lot of cutscenes. (1 Hour ago)

    Tinks Really digging the new event in Overwatch. Is it a continuing story? I thought I heard the event will move along a narrative on each end date or something. Might be wishful thinking... (1 Hour ago)
  • Megido
    Megido The problem with MGS2 is that like 80% of the game is story, and the story sucks. When you get to play, MGS2 is good. (2 Hours ago)

    asdfg @nostradamus: very interesting vid. Had no idea MGS2 had so much detail. Crazy what the PS2 and Kojima could pull off. (2 Hours ago)
