As long as thereís lots of maps Iíd pay for whatever. But now the new skate games are out, the EA skate controls seem lame

Yeah I don't think I can go back to the dumbed down controls.

It's always such a drag when they do a follow up to classic games that don't match their predecessors. I haven't played so I don't know how it feels, but the physics in everything I've seen so far look terrible compared to the old games.

That November play test video actually does look like an improvement compared to some vids I was watching last night. Less floaty and more natural looking. I'm definitely giving it a try when it comes out, just going to have to see how it feels.

is this all because it will be multiplayer based? this is the way its gonna look? characters look choppy/floaty/unnatural and the skins in the map look basic, edgy and not realistic. honestly doesnt look nearly as good as skate 2 even
i just close my eyes at the skatepark so i cant see anyone

Physics may look off which may hold. But, Graphics tend to be the last thing they fix in games, and I think this is still in alpha and at best early beta. Modern AAA development is to get the underlying game working how you want (physics, gameplay, map layout, story etc), and then either polish the graphics in-house or outsource to a studio in Malaysia to really polish it. Tons of games that look beautiful look like late PS2 or early PS3 games at this stage of development. Not, that I have much faith in EA overall especially with this going F2P.

Not gonna lie, seeing back 360 no complys, new trick animations and better lip trick physics has me pretty hyped. We'll see how it looks once the graphics are polished

i heard this shit is free to play

really bummed about that, i dont wanna have to pay for microtransactions and shit

i can see it now "cop a hockey graphic for in game 500 tokens" (equivalent to 10usd)

If it's just skins then who cares. I'm fine with kids with rich parents paying thousands of dollars for stupid shit so I don't have to.

Serious question after playing skate xl and session does going back to skate feel like Tony hawk? Or still feel fun and challenging?

Makes me glad I never played  anything past skate 3. Though the game play does look pretty ass

The real thing is they likely either gatekeep career progression or just outright ignore it. How you design a F2P game to monitize it generally hammers the game from a single player aspect. While not free to play look at what EA has done to franchise modes in their sports franchises so people play ultimate team to buy stupid packs.

The mechanics look way too floaty. Like everyoneís character is tyshawn on his best day or something.

 I love EA skate games but skating big gaps and stairs always looked weird because you catch the flip trick immediately and then carry it for the rest of the way down. I wanted to see slowed down flips timed with the size of the stairs/gap. But it looks like they havenít fixed that yet.

What will make or break this game is the maps and spots. Skate 2s spots were usually believable and something youíd want to skate/ see skated in real life while still being impressive. Skate 3 has 30 stairs, Davis sized gaps, and massive banks every 10 feet. Itís why I always go back to skate 2.

And Mike Carrollís overpowered kickflip. It might have been just as fast in 2 & 3 but I donít remember.

does anyone know if they have a 'Hardcore' option for the controls? it was in skate 3, and it made certain environments like pools way harder. i hope they fix the controls, i haven't played 4 but reading some of these posts has me worried

Skate 1 still looks good. The Color palate was so spot on. Felt natural but kinda nostalgic.

Yeah I loved the aesthetic and color palette. And the saturation gets cranked when you're landing a bunch of tricks in a row. The music would get louder too. Lots of tasteful subtleties like that.

I also love that the OST was done by an ex-skater. Why am I forgetting who right now... oh I think it's Tommy Guerrero?

And each neighborhood has it's own subtle filter color. If I recall, downtown is blue/light blue. Old parts of town are brown/tan. Suburbs are maybe green/sun yellow-orange?

It had such stylish UI too which is rare in games.

That game had an awesome mix of realism and stylization. It was mostly real in ways that were true to skateboarding too.

Skate 2 was so ugly in comparison. It was desaturated and lacked style. Just kind of ugly brown desaturated "realism". I hated how every game from that era fell into the "brown = realism" trend.

You can tell there was so much love and care and pride put into the development of that first game that was not allowed in the second game (and for the most part the third game).

I feel like those early 360 games before the 2008 crash was the last time major publishers were allowing for some risk and artistry in their games like that.

I'm guessing it's RPCS3, it's very heavy on your computer's processor though.

not sure how into pc building/hardware you are, but I'm running a ryzen 7 3700x for my cpu and playing at 1080p is buttery. you can find it for like $150 new on like Newegg, probably cheaper on eBay or FB marketplace

Thank you getting so specific. I have a Ryzen 7 5800x that came with the prebuilt I copped in 2021. I usually like to build my own and the mobo and case are pretty trash but I couldn't source a video card that year so I had to go with what I could get my hands on as my old machine was barely hanging on. Looking forward to playing around with this emulator!
