it had a lot of potential

To he it still has

Just drop a good map every month, add a Mode where you can play skate against others (you have to call the Trick before you do it) and add some new gear
[close]

nah...

I dont care about maps or gear if the physics and controls in the game are all fucked up, no precision, no realism, no fun at all...

If they put this game with stats control and modded on consoles yes, it can be an amazing game, but the way it is right now really sucks.

Agreed, although it is a fun game to mess around with friends in. The physics could really use some pop control. Your character blasts over everything like they're all jacked up on Mountain Dew.

This game for consoles is a fraud, it had a lot of potential, but the fact we cant control the stats makes the game impossible to play coherently and have fun with it.

If you have consoles dont waste money on this game.

Sadly, that's the truth. SkaterXL on console (or vanilla sxl) is actually just a demo version, and people have to accept that.

The full game on PC though... fuck, that shit is simply amazing. The SkaterXL + XXLmod gameplay is unbeatable.. Even Skate 4 will probably fail in provide better gameplay than that.

Add XXL's "total decouple rotation" setting to the mix and you will have some serious challenging hardcore simulation ting!

Session has everything I'd love to see in a skate game: amazing graphics, the whole core skate vibe and all, beautifully recreated eastcost spots.... but it will never truly deliver the feel of actually skating. The mechanics for it is just not there (not to mention animations, which just make you feel depressed as fuck)

The way you control shoulders, feet, and board flicks in SkaterXL is crazy. No wonder why some people have been buying new PCs just to be able to play this one game.

Has anybody on ps4 been able to invite friends into a multiplayer lobby? Iíve been in an open lobby but my friend/ I  can never join. Always says lobby is full or that the lobby doesnít exist.

Does anybody know how i can download a file from google earth in order to work out some sort of 3d model of a park that i can work with to make a skatepark on it?

I sort of might get involved in a local park adding a skatepark, but i have no idea how to use a fucking computer

This game for PC looks totally awsome, and I bet it is, but for consoles is really bad, almost like they havent finished the game.

They are on to some devilish tactics now. They added the first cosmetic DLC (here we go), but proceeds go to charity (ok I guess). It's all Skatepark of Tampa branded gear, so not at all worth paying for, except for the fact that it's all gear that is otherwise not accessible in the official game like baggy jeans and tank tops.

I don't know what to think of this. I'm not opposed to DLCs in general, I mean business wise you cannot expect them to keep a team working on the product without getting some money in, and I happily paid for all the Skate 3 DLCs eventually when I wanted something fresh. I wouldn't mind getting new boards and stuff from the real brands in the game like every season, but that's unlikely to happen for free.

But surely they will be releasing these new gear types in a future update for everybody? Or then they just keep selling them as DLCs with to drive the sales.... I don't know, probably I'm overthinking this since no-one seems to care for the console version in the first place... and the DLC isn't even available on PS, wtf

Yeah this drop is bullshit.  Id honestly pay 5 bucks for new quality maps if they dropped on a consistent basis.  If they had a NYC level at the same quality as LA I wouldn't think twice to pay for that.  But would never pay for these new maps they've been dropping, way too small and generic shit

XL isnít worth playing on consoles, not being updated with anything of value.  If the session game gets you 1.0 access in september, buy that. Also depends if you like arcadey or sim controls. Once it clicks, sessions actual switch controls are unrivalled. Left finger as left foot, right as right is so satisfying. I always spend about 5 minutes just doing frontside and backside flips from reg to switch and back. Then this into and out of grinds feel great too.

Absolutely nothing.

No IG post since mid August and that was just reposting someone's in game clips. 

Last game update was some bug patches in June. 

Last new park was in April when they gave us the same SPoT park but a new rail or two.  Prior to that it was February with a SLS skatepark... time to buy session next week

I love the controlls of Skater XL, but I feel the same. It feels like they are letting their own game die and I dont know why?

Comparing both games, you can see that is has way more players. But seems to me, that the guys from Session had put a lot of more work into their game or to say it better: Made the most out of their beta

https://steamcharts.com/app/962730

https://steamcharts.com/app/861650

Skater XL has around 450 avg players and Session has 120

I dont need much: Just new maps (without bugs), new gear and maybe new Mods (like paying S.k.a.t.e against each other)

skater xl is the only game i really play anymore. XLGM 2.0, that new experimental mod, hippiehop's Avenue map with the Museum of Natural History and Zucotti Park, it's been a great time modding-wise. I've got proper vignettes for my cameras finally.
It's just the New Vegas of these skate sims (if vanilla New Vegas sucked. It's still good. I played through the 360 port on Xbox One my first time.) Put a little work in and it's incredible
