Looks weak. Bad animations.

Looks like it was a kickastarter?

I'm divided since these guys really seem to aim in the right direction, but it's sorta ruined by the choppy animations weird gravity and character graphics. It looks like skate 3, eight years later.. There's some really cool details in there though, i hope they manage to upgrade what's wrong.

Stoked and at the same time really worried about the weak animations.
It just looks bad at the moment...

Everything I've heard so far is that it's still in the "pre pre alpha" stage of development, and what we're seeing now is mostly placeholder animations so people can test the controls. That said, kinda worries me they showed it at e3 with those animations. Hope they really come through with something worthwhile, they've got a lot of backers on kickstarter and they've got the right vision for the game I think.

I actually backed it awhile ago and played it but the controls are really uncomfortable honestly.

It's been nothing but "demos" and staged cutscene shit like this from these guys for years. I'll believe it when I have it installed on my hard drive.

Eh, I wasnít a fan of skate and by judging this video I probably wonít be a fan of this either. I miss THPS.

The animation looks like some Xbox 360 stuff, which whatever it's fine I'm sure it can be smoothed out before the release. What's weird to me though was the interview on Jenkem. Maybe I'm being cynical but it just seemed like the dude was eager to please, like "Oh yeah for sure we will add all of that! It's gonna be in there, anything you want!" It just reminds me of when you're younger and there's the weird kid who will do whatever you tell them to do because they so badly want to be popular.
"Hey Marcus, we'll like you if you eat a handful of rocks"
"Okay you got it dudes, gonna eat these rocks, yep I'm gonna!"

I want to be wrong though, to be clear I hope I'm totally wrong and this thing ends up being fucking mind-blowing. Until then like SFB said, I'll believe it when I see it.

I agree with you on this. I too am just hoping for the best, seeing as how it does seem to be our only hope for a good modern skateboarding game. Side note: Skater for mobile is actually really fun. The controls and physics are pretty amazing for a mobile game, great time waster if nothing else.

I haven't played the demo yet so I can't really say jack shit, but from watching the trailer this game looks like it's still too easy just like Skate 3. I want to struggle super hard for something as simple as flipping out of a trick. I hope this game delivers, I'm wishing the best for the creators.

Nah, the controls for this game are a bit more complex which takes out the fun factor in my opinion. But I guess some people will enjoy how challenging it can be.

Ive got huge problems with how this is panning out as most people have already covered. Basically I think theyre getting ahead of themselves. The game has been out too long in pre alpha with terrible animations and rigid controls. Theres no flow to this game and theyre burying themselves in Ďrealityí and trying to please everyone.

The E3 thing is a year too early and I think finessing this game is out of their grasp and until i see a technically solid operating model im assuming thisíll be a miss which sucks.

Theres a BMX game called BMX Pipe and one dude has made it and the physics are spot on. He made a small environment and sold it and it was a perfect proof of concept he is making into a full game. Session hasnt gotten close to that while promising more and more all the time.

 I want to be proven wrong

Asking for a friend here...if a new skateboard game were to be made what would you want to be different than THPS or Skate?

I think the controls are slightly different than skate and Tony canít make a new THPS. All I know is the session game has amazing looking back smiths . The rest seems glitchy and doesnít flow super well animation wise but I have high hopes none the less. In this day and age they could sell a map or two with the original game for $30 and add more maps and tricks and challenges as $5 DLC and they would cool with me .

Don't worry too much about this game, because it's never coming out.
