i think i played the skate demo more than i played the last tony hawk, i used to be a fan of tony hawk games but they have strayed so far from the point, which is SKATEBOARDING. i think that skate has brought this back in a whole new way, the controls at first were weird, but now they feel so natural that when i played this demo i was all messed up. you would think that after doing a game for so long they would be on top and have a niche, but to have a first timer like skate come out and show off a game better than any you have done, thats sad. what happened tony hawk? aw well skate is here to the rescue!

I've also been a big fan of THPS and Underground (except underground 2 and on)
the games are just horrible now, but they had a good thing going on before underground 2 started. R.I.P. THS Series. A new skateboarding game has been conceived. :) Skate.

it's funny, because tony said on camera (when he was here in Germany for GC 2007) "I don't know, Skate has this completely new control scheme which might not feel right to people. TH has the same control scheme it's been using for years, so people will most likely stick to that."
after his comment they showed people playing skate and everybody stated how cool this game and how realistic the gameplay is. they stated that they looked forward to this in the TH series, but now, Skate rocks.
I'm also getting Skate with some other friends of mine and we're leaving Tony behind... for the first time ever.

About the game

    Moonwalker @KORNdog: Speaking of Spiders, I finished Technomancer yesterday. Fun game but dragged down by WAY too much backtracking and lack of different locations. (2 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. (2 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. (4 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. (4 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. (4 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it still looks all kinda of garbage though. lol (4 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 :) (4 Hours ago)
