Is there a create-a-skater in this one?

#1 Posted by Napalm (9020 posts) -

I mean, the only reason I ever played skateboarding games is to customize my skater. So, do we know if this feature is in this game?

Im gonna guess no. Could be wrong but I dont see them putting that in.

Welp, I'll pass until the next retail game, or the next HD iteration. I just don't really care for playing as other skaters.

I highly doubt it, but it's got classic gameplay and Superman. There's not really any more you could want!

Oh yeah, I like Rodney. Dark flips, caspers, late flips and gazelle flips all day long.

@Napalm: Go back and play Project 8, meet with Rodney Mullen in the skate park and the facial animation will give you nightmares.

@AlisterCat: I'm good.

@AlisterCat I almost went down the dark path of buying Tony Hawks Proving Ground. Been really hankering for some damn skateboarding.

@Demoskinos: Proving ground isn't bad it's just not interesting... and it's HARD. I feel like they ramped it up from Project 8.

But just think how long it's been since a real Tony Hawk game came out. Proving ground came with a demo of Guitar Hero 3.

Did they leak the secret characters?

The Goldfinger song, not Marvel's Superman: This happens a lot.

Oh... okay.

I'm curious if they added secret characters. There are several secret achievements.

Hoping Officer Dick is in it!

Also Superman is DC.

@AlisterCat Yeah I saw that. Absolutely insane. I enjoyed what Skate tried to do with their games but goddamn it there is still nothing quite like that perilous tension when you have a 20 million point grind combo going and you just about bail in Tony Hawk.
