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.

    MrWhite Not "Here, you can have it all and become a god that can knock over a 30 tonne beast!" Had to be a balance there. There wasn't one. (7 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite having a perk slot system too. Only being able to equip a couple to suit what kind of style you want to play as. (7 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Little things that could have elevated the game from being just 'OK' to deserving the praise it got. (7 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite another solution for repetitive combat and progression is a weapon maintenance system, sparser ammo, and making each machine have a unique invulnerability to certain attacks. (7 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite A simple solution would have been a command wheel function for overridden machines. Attack, defend, stay, suicide attack, follow etc (7 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite the maps design didn't facilitate it. Like I say, poor design everywhere. (7 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @Tiz: I just think its sloppy AI coding, and just a general lack of want of doing it that way. One other reason is the on rails system for automatic riding (7 Hours ago)
