Jacopo follows the game on Instagram.  That would be a wet dream!!!
He's won't be on their roster for the initial launch but from what I understand the format for future DLC packs will be a new location, pros associated with the location, gear from the pros' sponsors and local brands, and new story missions at the spots so they'd be dumb not to try to do a Milano Centrale DLC with Jacopo

Ooooo... Milano Centrale is my favorite in SkaterXL. Would love that.

Ryan Thompson is so good. Kinda random choice for a game but I'm not complaining. Roger sponno makes sense now

He was one of the first people backing the game and helping them with industry connections and stuff. I'm assuming they held out on adding him until now cause they were trying to get the Adidas license in order but he's been a friend of the studio for a while so its cool to see him finally in the game

Glad I was wrong about the Adidas license, hopefully NB# is also available for the custom skaters

Nora’s good, Adidas is a sick pull.

Hope this game goes well! Love the 90s focus but hope they keep it modem enough to get kids excited. Brands and stuff don’t matter really but they definitely help sell it and hope their lack of ‘cool’ shit doesn’t hurt em.

Can’t wait to get my hands on v1. Transition grinds are gonna be sick

I stumbled into a release event in Brooklyn last night that had a couple stations going. I rolled around EMB for maybe 5 minutes. The menus are all redone and they look nice and the thing actually runs way better than I've ever seen it (though I'll see how my 2060 fairs against it). I should have looked at the new pants or the pros but I had to dip out of there

Haven't played yet, but I do know now that all the flip tricks are "desynced", so scooped tricks will be noticeably harder. If you messed with the desync setting in previous versions, then you'll know what I'm talking about. Some practice and setting adjustments should take care of that though. I always enjoy the learning curve that comes with new versions, so I'm very excited to mess around with it later.

Restarting Steam seems to be the usual trick to get any new updates to refresh.

so sick that you can go to Atlas. Weird that they put it on Kearny St next to China Banks but I guess it makes sense that they didn't want to put San Mateo in the game. They got the layout of the shop perfect though, even down to how the product is organized. They would never, ever sell Madrid boards though.

the only thing that will be tricky to get used to is using the triggers to turn. They have the option to let you use the skate controls though if you want.

Sorry guys, but they ditched the legacy controls for full release.   You're gonna be discouraged at first, but give yourself a couple days and you'll never wanna go back!!!

Reporting back in after a few hours with 1.0... so damn good now that I have a feel for it. I love how much quicker and snappier you can do 360 flips now.

And good lord the lip trick mechanics. I could mess with the small qps at LES all day now.

Very stoked.

aw dang that's a bummer, but yeah I agree I prefer their controls. I actually got a couple of my friends to try the game based on telling them that if they don't like their controls they could just use the Skate ones lol, oh well

The new controls that Session and SkaterXL will make you never want to go back to Skate.

HUGE disclaimer though, the default gameplay sliders for Session (especially the ones involving turning) are pretty awful. All of it is going to be subjective, and may vary by what controller you are using. However I think the turning is ridiculous out of the box.

I'll share my personal settings for an Xbox One controller on PC:

Board Settings:
Sync Truck Tightness: On
Front/Back Truck Tightness: 12/20
Wheel Bite: Disabled
Wheel Grip: 15/20

Advanced Settings:
Banking/Turn Rate: 0/20
Crouching Bank Rate: 10/20 (Default)

It feels like the turning may have changed a little bit since the pre-release, so I might still tweak these, but this is a good starting point at the very least.

I also feel that the revert triggers a bit too easily while you are trying to fine-tune your approach to a rail, so I have that backed off of the default by a bit.
Skateboarding is the ultimate challenge.

What are your preferred settings for spinning? I had to turn it all the way down just to stop doing damn 360s on everything.

I'm loving Rob Welsh lines at pier 7 so far
