Just bought it, some of the animations are wonky asf. But the way you can style tricks definitely makes up for it. Also love the fact that this is the first sim skating game I've played where you can do impossibles. So it's game of the year for me already.

Yeah most of the animations are bad half of the settings dont really work and the transition skating is no good. Hopefully they fix everything in the future updates, i bought it on Xbox.

Transitions garbage. Super frustrating to graze a wall and rag doll out. Got a decent feel for the controls at this point and having fun but I for sure canít wait for them to fix some stuff.

I bought Session for Xbox today and just finished playing for a few hours.

Things I like:
- The graphics/textures/lighting are good for a game still in development.
- The ability to do tricks a particular way.
- How satisfying it is when you finally land something clean.

Things I don't like:
- You can't pop onto like half the spots.
- The overall glitchiness and lack of flow.
- The controls. The legacy (Skate) controls are an option, but they're too glitchy.

I think this game definitely has potential, but it's rough around the edges gameplay-wise.
Playing this made me realize the perfect skating game for me would just be another Skate game, but with options like Session that let you increase the sim-factor.

What happened with the Xbox release? I backed this game years ago and was supposed to get a key for Xbox, then I bought the game on PC just for the meantime but they randomly sent me a Steam key anyways that same week, figured it must have been a mistake so I just gave it to some other slap member who I was friends with on Steam, now I'm not even sure what to expect.

They keep saying by the end of season, but itís kinda been a shit show with it getting pushed back and back.

I contacted them, turns out that key they gave me was by accident, but since it was already redeemed on PC they won't even bother giving me my Xbox key. What a mess.

Those are sick ^^

I paid for the early access on Xbox and I've really been enjoying it. I started playing with the "legacy" controls but they felt super laggy and unresponsive. Once I switched over the game became so much better. It's a steep learning curve and I still skate rails for shit, but each time I play I find I've gotten a little better. I'm looking forward to seeing what's next and how the map expands.

Also love the "historical challenges" it's such a nice touch for skate nerds.

Keep making those Orange.

I haven't messed with the replay editor much, but I have filmed my screen a few times after getting a decent clip lol. I may eventually compile them into a lil something.

I feel like I have no control over the style of ollies. They always look awkwardly tweaked, so kickflipping into most things has become my default.

Thanks dude! Fuck legacy controls. Gotta play hardcore mode. Once you get used to it itís the most rewarding thing. Yeah I only play Xbox... As for the replay editor... I canít use it for shit... I capture the shit from the Xbox menu, usually using the camera like live while the game clip records, usually takes a few tries but then Iíll bring it into premiere pro and clean it up, add fisheye, that type of shit... Made this one yesterday

Nice one, Orange. I forced myself to figure out the replay editor today, which I did, but the game kept crashing when I'd finish a clip lol. If I can sort that out I'll definitely piece together a little edit.

Thanks, man. Yeah Iím terrible with the replay editor, hope they fix it/simplify it... Iím sure they will. Also yeah dude! Post your edits! We need more hardcore/realistic shit... Some of these kids post the dumbest shit... Mostly 360 inward heel nose grinds with green grip tape and terrible trap music with a caption that says something like ďfire fire fire letís gooooĒ ... it sucks...

Seriously! I'll see someone post a "realistic" part, and the first trick will be a 540 down a 20 stair lol. I may only be able to put together about 30 seconds of footage based on the luck I'm having. I did hear that the devs are planning on totally scrapping the current replay editor, and rebuilding it. Let's hope that's the case.

Haha, yep... I'd prefer them to work on the map more so than the replay editor. I got out of bounds a few times and saw a rough outline of the courthouse ledge to drop and black hubba across the street. I heard they are working on Columbus park too.

haha my buddy was telling me about the game as he had the trial and basically summed up it with "you look at a ledge and fall over", still curious to give it a try myself though so I'm jumping on that trial today.

It's definitely a pain in the ass when you first try learning the game, but I'd really urge you to stick with it until you get a feel for the controls. It probably took me 4-5 days for it to start clicking in my head. I'm a few weeks in now, and it just gets more fun with every Session.

just played the new skater xl update and wanna say THANK GOD FOR SESSION. Honestly I have no idea why xl is more popular on slap. maybe because it's easier to play modded maps or something? session is way better as a skater sim, not even fucking close.

I have both now as of this morning. I have more time put into Session but Iíll be honest the more Iíve played XL the more Iím liking it, and I was a sceptic at first. Theyíre still going to be putting out updates for both games for a long time, I would hope any complaints in here will be fixed by the end of the year.

Vanilla xl is terrible. Modded physics and manual catch mod on pc is a dream. Session is tight but can use some updates. I'm just glad there is competition with skating games.

I wish I didn't have to look at your sig in every thread tbh. That shit is annoying and usually so are your posts.

Bought an xbox just to get in on all the new skating games and started out with Session. Haven't been drawn to start Skater XL yet even though I have both. Seems that SkaterXL has a bigger mod community which is definitely helping it above session but I've been turned off by the amount of youtubers I see doing 540 double flips with red grip tape. Hope Session can still be successful with all the competition because I definitely prefer the vibe (historic challenge idea is great too).

Anyone looking forward to the new update that should hopefully be out by October?

The physics is getting an overhaul, new customization options, and the pyramid ledges map is being expanded.

Here's a couple random clips I filmed off my TV screen. Hopefully soon enough they'll update the replay editor so that we can actually save and share clips that way.
