My friend texted me this earlier. After she explained who HuskyHog is, I came to a conclusion. I refused to play another Metal Gear after they gave Hayter the axe and I refuse to play another skate game now that they think some dev posting a hash tag is going to get me hyped. They aren't going to fix the problems with staying on a kinked rail. They aren't going to make the tricks flip and catch with the size of the gap so you can actually take a decent photo. NPCs crowding a spot if you are trying something for more than 3 minutes. Can't push fast enough, can't impossible, kicking the legs the wrong way for airwalks, making me complete the lamest challenges to get the pants I want. Hall of Meat, follow me, win this contest, impress this prick... fuck those games.

I was always a THPS kinda guy.  I bought SKATE at the time when it first came out and I just wasn't feeling it.  It was one of the most frustrating games I ever played.

if it does happen they better improve the customization options, THUG 2 came out 13 years ago, and that had the best customization of any skating game ive played, and they better not have that "pick a color block" bullshit, its the current year, they better have a color spectrum
(http://blog.flexfireleds.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/09/led-color-spectrum.jpg)
if the game comes out and they dont have this and better map customization they can go grab berra's xenu 9" vibrating dildo and go fuck themselves
tl;dr fits or gtfo

UPDATE 1st Feb 2017: It turns out Skate 4 was a half-pipe dream after all. EA has said it's not making it.

In a question and answer session with analysts last night, EA executives put the breaks on the Skate 4 hype train after a community chief set the internet alight with a single tweet.

"Much to the dismay of the many people that email me on a fairly regular basis, we are not presently making Skate 4," EA boss Andrew Wilson said, "and so that will not be in fiscal year 2018."

So there you have it. No Skate 4. Booooo!

EA must be regular if they aren't working on skate4, considering the amount of comments on their instagram alone...

skate 4 = bad news. 

they are fearful that Project:Session is going to A) take over the "Skate" market of video games and B) give a indy Dev they have no control over a big market share and C) make skateobarding video games appear economically unviable to other publishers and devs.   The reason there is no Skate 4 is because they wrecked blackbox. end of story.  My last count was that EA has already killed two dozen or so developer companies and sandbagged a few others so they could force a hostile take over.  They have proven they will kill their own AAA games sales just to spite another publisher (IE early release of titanfall 2 in order to take away from COD sales and make BF1 the top selling shooter).  EA is a shit company up on par with konami and ubisoft in their business practices. they do not care about consumers.   

what EA will pull with skate for will be EA.  i am will to lay down a pair of indys that skate 4 will come out within a month of Project:Session, and it will be an unfinished medicore product with season passes, preorder skins, and micotransactions. 


if you care about the future of skateboarding video games you should be hashtagging #boycottSkate4

its out of my professional knowledge area but i don't think you can patent input design (which is why most shooters have the same control scheme).  I asked one of the patent guys in my office and they said it would probably fail under an "obviousness"  challenge

After a bit of googling, apparently EA doesn't own the Flick It control but 2 of the original Skate developers (Scott and Jay, couldn't find any last names). Not sure if it's patented or possible to patent, but I'm pretty sure they'll have good proof to be the inventors and IP owners of the Flick It.

i misunderstood your original post-- my bad "FlickIt" is a code.  that code can be protected as IP-- but actually flicking your sticks to control the board, i dont think it can be considered violating IP if you go about it a novel way.

EA has renewed the Skate trademark for another 10 years. That's gotta mean something.

https://gamerant.com/ea-skate-trademark-renew/

Polygon chimed in about the rumors that a renewal could mean another Skate, and I thought this was a pretty funny paragraph:

Quote
“Ninety-nine times out of a hundred, you’re dealing with a publisher or a major company that has in-house legal teams that are on monthly retainers that are just sitting there bored all day,” said Ryan Morrison, a founding partner of the Los Angeles-based Morrison Rothman firm, which specializes in intellectual property law.

If they didn't renew it, and someone else did, wouldn't it mean they couldn't sell skate1-3 anymore?

I dunno, I would definitely want to see a fully developed skate game with proper story and objectives. Skater xl and session are great, but they're strictly simulations for full on skate/gaming nerds, and I don't know if they're looking to develop past that. Just re-played through thug 1&2 recently, and it's just a totally different complete fun experience playing through a game like that imo.

Wouldn't expect much from Tony, dude will slap his name on anything at the moment. Probably a mobile

Have just had it for a week and i am really enjoying it every day, i really want to get into the level design stuff. you will never be able to do that in an EA game. fuck EA

I have a PS Vita that is modded and allows me to play Thrasher Skate And Destroy on the go, it also allows me to play a ton of Tony Hawk games but Skate And Destroy is usually my go to when I want something more grounded.

apparently you can wallride, i just dont really know how to do it. i doubt it looks good in current state. i have asked the devs for powerslide as well i feel like that is a huge thing missing. what is wrong with manuals though? they seem fine to me
i appreciate the game still lacks a ton of polish. if it had the right funding it could be a really sick game
Title: Re: Skate 4 Hype
Post by: Frank on November 20, 2019, 09:52:31 PM
yeah i guess i've been fatigued from playing it for almost a year and sometimes i have this glitch where turning will lock up and this happens more often in some sessions than others, hasn't occured in other games so far though so it seems glitchiness from the game itself, not the controller. anyways, i am sure this will turn out great once it's finished.

i purchased session. yesterday and am having fun relearning it since playing the demo park. it seems more unforgiving than skater xl but at the same time you can't style out your tricks as easily as in skater xl. i think both games complement each other. a blend of the two would be pretty neat. i like session. manuals more, they feel more real somewhat and i like the skater's heaviness, makes it feel rugged. at the same time, skating curbs and ledges is way more enjoyable in skater xl and contrary to others i dig that in skater xl you have to wind up to 360 in flat. overall i feel like body turning is more controllable in skater xl.

i have tried to wallride in skater xl but so far no luck. wallies are possible for sure, but look weird and a small parking block like in the new california skatepark parking lot can send you flying out unrealistically high.

Thug 1 was the best spot wise, followed by THPS4. Enjoyed the bro to flow to pro storyline too of the first underground game. Muska cameo was dope.

I like Thrashers control scheme.

But Street Sk8ers 1 and 2 was the shit.

Skate 4 is never happening.
Thank God 1,2,3 have decent replay-ability if you can get over the quirky animations and glitchy shit. I like the first skate so much I can deal with the setbacks. The second one is amazing but the colors are like gta 4 too dark and dreary for me at times. 3 is the opposite. To bright and the team aspect in career wasnt does.

Give me a skate game that's a combination of the best parts of 2 and 3s map that includes 1s story mode in a re release with all the shoes boards and apparel from the three and I'd buy it.

Yeah, neither Session or XL are as fun to just be on your board as any Skate game.  I want to be able to slappy into shit, extend that mechanic into wallrides too.  Like hold the left bumper when ollieing and you just bash.  Could make it powerslide on flat or slappy if theres a curb.  Then extend that into being a lip trick modifier so you dont ollie into a grind on a ramp. 

I also want a skate game that's loose and flows but there's no way either of these ones will do it, they're more focused around landing tricks rather than actual skating around & flowing on your board.
Title: Re: Skate 4 Hype
Post by: Frank on December 01, 2019, 07:40:26 AM
so here's a pros and cons about skater xl vs session. at this point

skater xl

pros:
-nice flick control
-better control of body rotation
-grinds and slides seem more natural
-general controls to pop off are a bit more intuitive
-mod friendly means a lot of content by the community
-i think it has a replay editor now?
-pretty good board physics

cons:
-no powerslides, wallrides, slappies
-glitchy turning, hard to line up for grinds sometimes
-general pushing around is unenjoyable and wonky
-the game looks bland as fuck, that goes for most animations as well
-only 2 official spots to skate, community maps can be glitchy


session.
pros:
-it feels less realistic to flick tricks but the impact of landing them seems more realistic in session. (?)
-manuals feel a little better than in skater xl
-some trick animations look pretty cool compared to skater xl, i love doing bs flips, they look nate jones like
-the level you can skate is really big and has famous spots rebuild in it, like brooklyn banks, looks pretty good, too
-wallies work better in this game
-more in game options to customize skater and skateboard than skater xl
-in game replay editor that works similar to those in the skate games
-actual stuff to do via challenge list
-some aspects of the controls are customizable

cons:
-it's not as freeflicking as skater xl, you basically do the right flicking motion, then the game will play off an animation, whereas in skater xl you control your feet independently. in session. the longer you squat down the higher you pop off, the longer you wind up for a spin via triggers the faster/more you will spin, with no real way to slow down and a somewhat weir window that makes it hard for me to do nice fakie fs flips. it's kinda hard to just 180 clean, often the skater would instead spin more like 270 degrees. you can customize how the triggers work but i haven't found a setting that is intuitive and works for me.
-that's the worst thing about this game. kind of locks you into flip animations and i feel like in skater xl you have more freedom to a)flick that board how you like and let it do his thing in the physics engine b)catch the board at any point with any of your two feet.

playing session. it's kind of like a mix from the gameplay from skate and thrasher:skate and destroy

so here's a pros and cons about skater xl vs session. at this point

skater xl

pros:
-nice flick control
-better control of body rotation
-grinds and slides seem more natural
-general controls to pop off are a bit more intuitive
-mod friendly means a lot of content by the community
-i think it has a replay editor now?
-pretty good board physics

cons:
-no powerslides, wallrides, slappies
-glitchy turning, hard to line up for grinds sometimes
-general pushing around is unenjoyable and wonky
-the game looks bland as fuck, that goes for most animations as well
-only 2 official spots to skate, community maps can be glitchy


session.
pros:
-it feels less realistic to flick tricks but the impact of landing them seems more realistic in session. (?)
-manuals feel a little better than in skater xl
-some trick animations look pretty cool compared to skater xl, i love doing bs flips, they look nate jones like
-the level you can skate is really big and has famous spots rebuild in it, like brooklyn banks, looks pretty good, too
-wallies work better in this game
-more in game options to customize skater and skateboard than skater xl
-in game replay editor that works similar to those in the skate games
-actual stuff to do via challenge list
-some aspects of the controls are customizable

cons:
-it's not as freeflicking as skater xl, you basically do the right flicking motion, then the game will play off an animation, whereas in skater xl you control your feet independently. in session. the longer you squat down the higher you pop off, the longer you wind up for a spin via triggers the faster/more you will spin, with no real way to slow down and a somewhat weir window that makes it hard for me to do nice fakie fs flips. it's kinda hard to just 180 clean, often the skater would instead spin more like 270 degrees. you can customize how the triggers work but i haven't found a setting that is intuitive and works for me.

Skater XL controls give you the ability to tweak/ move your feet with how you land with the joysticks. It also lets you control the direction of your flick based on how you do it... You can rocket stuff or bone it out based on the direction of your flick so it's not just animations. You can do any trick a bunch of different ways. That's why I like Skater XL better personally. You can make your own style if you take the time to fuck around.

I really wanted to like both session and skater xl, but came to conclusion that they are trash and will never be much better. Just not fun to play for any long period of time. Compare to the ea skate series I can play endlessly.

Waiting for skate 4.

Just go get a USB controller at your local box store for like 30 bones, and get skater XL instead. I got both and XL is more fun imo because you can control your style instead of just set animations for each trick.

Yeah, since neither has any objectives or goals at this point, skater xl is definitely more fun and interesting as a simulator and with the new update the skating looks pretty damn good too. Exploring the map finding and building spots is kinda fun in session though, when skater xl you just load a custom map and teleport wherever you want which gets a bit boring

It sounds as if they're referencing intel from Dill's nine club (I'm assuming. Haven't watched it all).
They also say Dill knows there is going to be another tony hawk game coming out.

All you really need is the two sticks to play. For grabs you'd need to use the index fingers though, which is a bit awkward. But I think that if they just ported the game with scaled down graphics, it would be just fine for some casual play.

Yeah I had this but THPS2 on IOS was much more playable.

This same game was on the Nintendo DS. Being able to use the d-pad made it so much better. the game wasn't pretty or polished, but it's still good. I still play it quite often. Especially if I'm traveling with a 3DS.

I grew up on games since the 90s so I'm with ya. Skate or Die for NES is an all time favorite.

All the EA skate games are great. Each one is different. I think the 1st one is my personal favorite. 1st one is the most gritty/raw; 2nd is probably the most balanced; 3rd is probably the most polished and has the most features. They're all worth having. I think they're about $10 used, maybe less. Wish EA just released a remastered collection or something. I'm sure music rights is an issue but I know they had their own music for skate 3 and people can just load up their own music anyway.

Noticed a few people mentioning THPS2 mobile, if you have android you could always download the RetroArch app and emulate the PS1 or N64 version of THPS2 which isn't complex at all to do, I imagine any decent phone could run it because I have a crap phone that is still capable.

I had THPS2 on my iphone and ipad back in the day. Still have it on the ipad i think. It was pretty good. I remember they scrapped the music tracks probably due to expired rights.

Check out Skater. It's got a steep learning curve. But once you get used to it, it's fun stringing lines together. I hear there are comparable or better ones (think Rad Rat made a vid on this), but I really like it and could spend as much time free skating with it as an EA skate game.

I just hope THPS 1+2 sells well enough to warrant a remaster of 3 and 4, perhaps even Underground.

I would be hyped on more TH remasters but you're right to be worried about the saturation. Same thing happened in the late 90s/early 2000s and the only thing to survive was TH and I don't think it will be the same situation this time around. I feel bad for the devs who tried to essentially DIY a new game just for ea to attempt to steal their thunder even though the new skate game isn't even close to release. Essentially trying to tell people "don't buy this, skate is coming...eventually"

I was *sorta* joking about my original comment, but I do feel like people are being a bit too nostalgic about these remasters. They look nice and it's fun to see that stuff re-imagined, but I would be really surprised if they actually do well enough to warrant a whole new wave of THPS games/remasters. Even if they do it well compared to the LAST couple times they tried to reboot the series, I feel like that gameplay is pretty dated. And that's coming from someone who largely started skating because of those games. But hey, I could be wrong.

My only concerns with a new Skate game is the video game industry is riddled with microtransactions now. In-game currency and battle passes in like every new game(Thanks Fortnite) I hate that greedy BS targeted to make kids gambling addicts lol.

I'll buy regardless though because it's been over 10 years and tbh I hate those new Session/Skater XL type games. Not for me.

Wow, just looked and hadn't realized Skate 3 was released in May 2010.

Like others have said, EA is notorious for microtransactions and I suspect we'll need to pay real money if we want DOA boards. I'm hyped either way and will upgrade to a PS5 whenever this comes out.

I'm excited to see what they do for this and I'll probably pick it up either way but if there isn't a substantial upgrade to the controls and gameplay I'll probably be disappointed. After playing this newer, more simulation style games I've found I care much more about how the skating feels then I do the quests or story mode or any of that.

Maybe they could do a classic and a hardcore mode to try to appeal to both crowds

yeah, DLCs have been around for the skate games, but if microtransactions are restricted to add-ones i'll have no issue.

i would love updated gear
a good list of brands that spans a couple different sides of skating
new pros
better graphics & smoother gameplay
new tricks (impossibles, better wallrides, fixed kinker rail physics)
a better story mode than skate 3
more fun spots!

They have the backing to make a hugely realistic, detailed game but my worry is that with two ‘sims’ in the market, they’ll go for the goofy YouTuber market with physics joke hall of meat bullshit again.

As a slight younger dork I had a huge written list of skate 4 ideas.  It’d be funny to find it now
Title: Re: Skate 4 Hype
Post by: El Fapinator on February 13, 2021, 04:51:07 PM
Different eras of skating through clothes skaters and board’s.

  Brand’s should be updated also a adjustable setup wheelbase and board stresses so you have to land bolts or something similar,  also waaaay more tech ability to choose parts.

 I mean really it could be a quasi rpg character of selection of what’s best and what’s budget.

The biggest thing for me would be content... you can blow through the other skate games in a long weekend each pretty much, they are great, but there isn't a huge amount of meat on the bones.

Don't get me wrong, it's fun just cruising about and skating, but a longer "game" wouldn't go amiss.

Bigger map too....should be easily doable on modern hardware.

When you 180 into switch stance you need to set up right away, then the animations will look switch.

Yeah, i know about this and do it but it would be nice if they actually made switch look like that with out having to set up immeadiately cause sometimes you lose speed being in switch like that

I love the 'different eras' idea.  It'd be great to even switch trick sets dependent on era.  Proper boards, clothes & wheels etc.    And if they get pros in there, do a full motion capture with their style & trick selection, especially if they get the older dudes in.  True physics that change with board set up.

A board customiser would be sick too, so you can change the shape & geometry to whatever you want & it all changes how the game plays.  Would love to do a vert run on a polariser.

And a huge open world with hillbombs that count. 

And fucken SLAPPIES.

Theyve got the resources, so I hope they do it right.

I agree but this is how video game promotion works, sadly. They have to publicly dangle a carrot to show investors and publishers that public interest is still there, that's just how the industry works. Square Enix announces their games like 7 years in advance. And anyways they warned everyone in advance that this trailer wasn't going to show shit and none of us are worse off for it having existed, even if it showed nothing but mo-cap and influencer reactions.

And I understand fans have been wanting this game for 11 years but 11 years IS irrelevant to the development because they just started, it has no bearing on the actual making of this game because they've only been working on it for 7 months or so.

I understand all of that. I don't understand why you think I don't.

I know they just started working on the game recently. That doesn't mean they couldn't have released a sequel years ago if they'd wanted to but instead they spent the last decade ignoring skate fans and made a bunch of bullshit that I frankly hate. I never said they've been working on it for years, I know they haven't, but that doesn't mean they couldn't have made several sequels during that same span of time if they wanted to.

Why are you even so caught up on that 11 year bit anyway? That's just opinions differing, you're not going to somehow prove me wrong.

Also you're way over generalizing. Tons of games are announced with a gameplay trailer, even AAA stuff. Plenty of games are announced and come out a year later if not sooner (fallout 4 I believe was like this). Not all companies introduce their upcoming games at the same stage of development. It's really all over the place.

If Skate 4 was just words last year (which it seems to have been considering their "progress") then (and this is only my opinion) they should have kept their mouths shut. I consider this trailer to be much more in-line with what accompanies the average modern game announcement, so they should have just announced it with this trailer this year. Again that's my opinion, go on and have your own.

They didn't need to dangle any carrots either, the fan base has been aggressive in it's asking for a sequel so I disagree with that notion as well.

What do you mean they told "everyone" the trailer was going to amount to a BS puff piece? No one told me. I just saw the trailer here and shared my thoughts.

Quit going so far out of your way to defend these douche's guys. it's not like you're going to get a better game then I when it comes out for apologizing for EA online.

How does all that pass stuff work? I barely get to play games ever anymore so I'm way out of the loop.
I was going to hook up my 360 downstairs to play 1 and 2.

As far as who I think would be in it ..
Based on skill or popularity or the sponsors
Yuto Horigome (April, Nike)
*Dennis Busenitz (Real, Adidas)
Ishod Wair (Real, Nike)
*Lucas Puig (Palace, Adidas)
Grant Taylor (Anti Hero, Nike)
Oskar Rozenberg (Polar, Nike)
*Jason Dill (FA, Adidas, Supreme)
Louie Lopez (FA, Converse)
*Andrew Reynolds (Baker, Vans)
Alexis Sablone (Alltimers, Converse)
Jimmy Wilkins (Creature, Lakai)
Miles Silvas? someone from Primitive?
Samarria Brevard (Enjoi, NB)
Kader (Baker, Adidas, Supreme)
Rayssa Leal (April, Nike, Monster)
Breana Geering (Girl, Vans)
*Gonz (Krooked, adidas, Supreme)
Chris Joslin (Plan B, Etnies, Rockstar)
Cher Strauberry (Unity still a thing? & Vans)
Shingo has to be in this

*legendary alumni but still relevant for skating/sponsors

Other characters:
Bill Strobeck
Pontus Alv
Beagle

(I would like guys like Gall, Worrest, but doubt it)

I figure for boards, with these skaters:
April, Real, Palace, Anti Hero, Polar, FA, Alltimers, Baker, Creature, Enjoi, Girl, Krooked, Plan B and if Cher has a board?
that you have a lot of bases covered

But also, with these skaters, you get shoe-wise:
Nike, adidas, Converse, NB, Lakai, Etnies & Vans

And also, some Monster, Rockstar & Supreme from these people as well

As for "plot", I enjoyed the plots from skate 1 and 2, as far as getting clips to get sponsored, winning the contests and so on. But to move it to current time: I guess getting IG clips, and so forth? Better the trick, the more likes... likes count to your "popularity" I guess? Getting sponsors - board, wheels, trucks, clothes (kinda tricky maybe?) & shoes. Not sure what the grand finale would be at all.

Locations: LA, SF, (with EMB & Pier 7 of course), SD, NY, Boston, Vancouver, Japan, Brazil, UK, Sweden & Australia & NZ?
And you would take flights to these places as opposed to a bus or train, make it a bit more real. And you'd meet these skaters in their areas and *some other plot here*. (I don't think I have any Australians or Kiwis but the nice parks! Would be nice)

Other things, such as while in NY: filming with Strobeck for a Supreme video
filming in LA with Beagle
filming in Sweden with Pontus
etc.

The shops would be , I guess: Supreme, Palace & FA stores, which would please a certain crowd. But also a hometown shop would be nice also. Could buy those Polar Big Boy pants and 93 denims.

I thought about this way too much today

I respect all the thought you put into here. I'd love the classic character builder in the skate shop like they did on thps as well. Maybe they get dickies licensing too. Hopefully there's more sliders for face customization because they all kind of looked the same no matter what you did

Yeah the faces in Skate 1 especially looked similar. Love that game (except not being able to walk)
These aren't really the people I would want in the game, but more who I think would be the "right candidates" and why it would work. I would probably be Busenitz, Puig, Sablone, Wilkins & Oskar the most (wow this is hypothetical)
I would be hyped for it.

I almost had Elliot Sloan (for a vert guy) but I don't think Daddy Hawk would be psyched on a Birdhouse guy skating for the opposition's game? If that even matters. But I prefer Wilkins anyway, plus it added Creature AND Lakai.

Oh, I thought of a finale, which would also add fashion to the game too: Dime Glory Challenge
*which could even possibly add Weckingball as a character, lol.

That would be pretty sick. And you could have Kader's drop-in (preferably on Jason Jessee's 5head)

As you can tell, I am excited.

I'm with you for sure, who would be the dream skate roster for you

Also love the dime glory challenge idea. Would be more fun to skate than black box. The palace park would be sick to skate too

I'd be hyped on Mwadlands!

I'd like a game that you could edit the era and gear
OR switch modes (eras). 1992, 1997/98, 2003 & current

1992:
D Way, Hawk, Carroll, Sheffey, Duffy, Klein, Speyer, Jovantae, Daewon, Sanchez, Mariano, Lotti, Mullen!
1997/98:
Gall, Lennie Kirk, Gonz, Cardiel, Heath, Burnquist, Wray, Reynolds, Boulala, Greco, Penny, Mullen, Klein, Gino, Mariano
2003:
Marc Johnson, Heath, Reynolds, Greco, Gino, Wenning, Koston, PRod, Arto, Rowley, Thomas, McCrank, Kalis, DWay, Cardiel

Title: Re: Skate 4 Hype
Post by: potpie on August 14, 2021, 10:46:04 PM
Yeah I’m betting this will be free to play, multiplayer free roam. like load up a match into a lobby with 32 other skaters and its a big old free for all. i would not expect the same things from the previous franchise in terms of story, i think we’ll be seeing a lot of new stuff like battle royale skate-off or something to get the “kids” interested.

i think the game will mostly be supported via micro-transactions for gear and clothes, maybe they’ll release gear in bundles or in season passes. i dont foresee DLC maps being a big thing. that or any throwbacks to san vanelona for that matter.

oh and for the record, EA and the studio which developed the game are not the same. if you want to trash talk the flaws in the franchise, blame EA, it seems the studio tried their best to make it a good value.

The classic stuff would be sick but i doubt they're gonna pander to us old farts. Much more likely they try and appeal to the young kids. Breanna being a part of it is huge, but i also had a thought that they should replace Navs with Gravette or Baekkel as the designated creature pro

After playing skater xl and session, which both have really good ideas in their own ways, it's clear how much of a difference the playing experience is with the backing of a bigger company with more money lol.  I have faith that skate 4 will be good, but it'll take a while to come out for sure.

Just started replaying Skate 1. Minus the lack of getting off the board - game is boss. Did a bunch of tricks over the Gonz gap and skated Hubba. Only complaints are : not being able to get off the board and can't get sponsored by Krooked
I think Skate 1 had my favorite "levels" or spots, whatever.
Skate 2 had my favorite roster of pros (adding Cardiel, Puig and MJ !)
Skate 3 had my favorite options (making 4 people for your team is one of them) but I didn't like the spots as much, as the first 2 games.

The maps and in my opinion graphics in skate 1 are the best... Love the physics and hardcore mode of skate 3 tho... But in recent years Ive switched over to Session and there is just no going back... I tried playing Skate 3 again the other day and just couldn't do it... Seriously... Session on hardcore mode is the way to go. It's like Thrasher skate and destroy had a baby with Skate 1... They developers seem a tad... Corny... But if you look past that and just play the game it's so good.

But there are so many good spots in 2 as well.
The spot at 0:38 in this is one of my favorites. Shit i might have to track down a copy of skate 2 for the ol 360

pulling the xbone out at that news.

anyway im hyperfixated on what the soundtrack is gonna look like. its been a mix of skate video songs and like, run-of-the-mill alternative rock. so here me out: what if they put a dystopia song in it? like Anger Brought By Disease would be topical. Lotties video. My Meds Arent Working was in an Antihero thing right?

What if they put in the Gang Gang Dance song from Cherry. That is actually way more likely.

I'm the opposite.  If they don't use the same controls as session, i won't play it.  It takes awhile to get used to the new controls,  but once you do , you cant go back.    You can make every kickflip look different.

Wheels: $45 F4 Spitfires
Grip: Free; $10 if Shake Junt
Bolts: Free - because we're not complete assholes
There’ll be a tightening your bolts mini game, but you can also pay $20 to get the silver tool dlc and it skips it.

I will NEVER play a free to play game. I hope it's not the case, but because it's EA it's probably true. Oh well.

Same goes for me, but I cant continue living without Skate4 if the release it. I have never ever preordered a game, but that might be the first one to do so

Because it took EA so long to release Skate4

I dont play much other games besides Skater Xl or Skate, so I highly appreciate another Skate game

But I doubt they will release it during the first half of this year

if it does come out this year i predict they will release around the holidays to get as much money as they can

Some preAlpha footage

Looks like they found the weak point with Session and XL: no ones doing front flip hippy jumps

So that confirms they’re leaning into YouTuber dipshits rather than skaters

was really hoping they wouldnt do this but since they included all the youtube fucks and people that have nothing to do with skating in that first commercial i guess it was bound to happen  :-\

Is Thrasher still involved with Skate 4? Is there a list of companies yet?

Seems like it will just be more bullshit Hall of Meat and other hijinx to fill out a game which, since it's online, will surely have no story at all.

I think it might suck.

I mean if all maps and major content are free and it's just cosmetics they charge for then that's totally fine with me but knowing EA it won't be the case

More disappointed that they're still mis-labelling Nollie 360 Shoves.

to me those spots feel kinda dated. what spots people skate and the way they skate them have changed. wouldnt mind if they updated san van but give us some realistic spots

I really hope they don't do anything like 2k with VC. Myteam in 2k is one of the greediest money grabs in all of video games. People literally spend thousands on packs. They have a monopoly on one of the 3 most popular sports in the world and it really shows in how lazy they are not fixing things that have been broken for 3+ years. I have made a decent amount of money selling MT this year though.

And this shit right here is why I've been playing 2k12 for ten years and refuse to get any of the new 2ks

Saw some news about Skate 4 being revealed in July. I guess we'll find out the release date/ game details in a few weeks.

I legit hope they don't make everything loot box based.

Like, everyone starts with Revive boards. And if you want an AH18 Eagle board, it's $5.99.

Don't want to watch John Hill vids? That's $4.99.

I wouldn't be shocked if its just a full on reveal maybe with a CGI trailer and a big name skater alongside it. Tons of games get a couple showings before they get a real release date. Maybe we get a release window but if its just that usually add 1/4 of a year to it.

hopefully they stick to the old formula and put pros in the game people actually like and pay their sponsors to put their product in the game or at least make an online server where people can upload shit like customized parks and gear
