Finally we get to see some gameplay and a look at the new game mechanics with the first trailer for Skate 2



There is an interview up on IGN with Scott Blackwood:

QUOTE
Last year, EA Black Box flip kicked the skateboarding game genre and dethroned the longtime and formerly untouched leader, Activision's Tony Hawk franchise, with the simply titled Skate. The game's Flickit control mechanics and essentially completely open progression system brought it closer to the actual sport than any attempt before it.

The studio is now at work on the follow-up, Skate 2. While it's being hush-hush on some of the bigger elements of the game, like the online play, video recording and even the story progression, we were able to get a few answers from Scott Blackwood, executive producer on the title. Here's what he had to say:

If anyone has anything (News, articles etc.) to be added to this post just give me a shout.

Wow, moving the environment in realtime to suit your style. Impressive. Also Walking, Liptricks and some cool trick where you jump over the rail and your board rolls underneath.

I only played the demo for the first, but I'll definately have to get the second after watching this. Hopefully they'll fix up the netcode too.

Huge fan of the first. I'm glad you can walk now.

I use to own at Vertical Skating, but sucked at Street.
Anyways, can't wait biggrin.gif .

The full stop is not in the title.

Anyone remember the Rob and Big mission? Where you had to do a 360 into a Crooked? Man it can bring a man to tears. It took me like 2hrs! Let's hope they tweak the controls this time as some of the tricks were a bit awkward to do.

Talk about a week for me being as it pissed me off so much I had to leave it. Also for me I thought the videos you had to make on there some of them got pretty hard for me and I've still got a lot to do that I just cant. Hopefully they'll 'dumb' down some of them.

Saw the video earlier and was chuffed to bits. Love this game, skate was in my disk tray for like a month straight. So much fun just trying to perfect even the simplest of tricks and grinds. I could go back to it now and play even after compelting everything. The skating and world just feel real.

Being able to get off your board will be so helpful. Many of times I have found myself at the bottom of a staircase. Can you climb things though? That could create some great lines.

Graphics definitely look improved, can't wait to see how they get them to look better over the couple months they have left until it goes gold. icon14.gif

Just in time for my birthday, unfortunately I missed out on the first, but hopefully will be able to pick it up this time around.

I'm sure there was another topic but I couldn't see it on the first few pages (did I miss it?). Anyway just thought I would bring the news that the demo is out on Wednesday, f*cking great if you ask me!

Thanks Moncai. Jeeze looks like I'll be deciding between the Sims 3 or Skate 2 for game of choice. Although I will have the Skate 2 demo, and I played on the first one for hours on end.

I hope I don't have to wait a couple days to get the demo, because of my XBL silver status (and before anyone says, "just upgrade to gold", there are elements that stop me from doing so that I will not go into, so it's not as easy as "just upgrading".)

Anyway, I'm f*cking excited. The last demo blew my f*cking mind. I played it as much as a full game. I hope they pick an area to skate as good as in the first demo. The community center is still a favorite place of mine.

Ugh, I want this demo but my console is in for repair for atleast another week. The game looks amazing from the screens, I'll have to go on youtube since that video's been taken down.

As for the tricks, I'm not to sure about making some of the tricks less awkward, I think that's what skating is all about and since this is a skateboarding sim, it's suitable to be in the game. All in all I can't wait for this game to be released smile.gif .

Edit: Just watched trailer, looks f*cking sweet. Can't wait to set up my own obsticales to make the perfect line.

Demo? Demo? OMG This game is closer than I thought. I HAVE to get the demo. Any means necessary. Wednesday sounds about right. Can't wait until this game comes out, for real.



Edit: MP Demo?? PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE

Has anyone seen the introduction to Skate 2 yet? If not here it is,

I'm so glad this is coming out, I played on Skate earlier tonight and I forgot how much it pissed me off. Well even more so since I have nothing but videos to complete, which I can't so I can't move on in the storyline.
