Now this is what it's like when worlds collide.

NOW THIS IS WHAT IT'S LIIIIIIIIIIIIIKE

Now those new songs all seem to be... current artists! Surely, surely there's ben a mistake along the line. Late 2000s indie rock has no place in an early TH game. No place I say.

I know the first 3 of those songs, but none of the rest, and only Superman do I remember from Tony Hawk. I had the N64 version so maybe the soundtrack was different. Also never had 2.

Who the fuck are these new bands?

#5 Edited by DaSoul (228 posts) -

The lack of Guerrilla Radio disappoints me.

#6 Posted by DeathbyYeti (744 posts) -

MillenColin?

Hype

#7 Posted by MildMolasses (3221 posts) -

I hate that Millencolin song. I'm actually not going to buy this now because of it's inclusion. It's the only part of THPS2 that isn't amazing

#8 Posted by ahgunsillyo (450 posts) -

"Superman" is pretty much the only song I need to listen to when playing Tony Hawk's Pro Skater. Powerman 5000 is a welcome re-inclusion, though.

As for the new songs, they really should have just put in Linkin Park, and... more Linkin Park. All Linkin Park. I don't know why, but I think that would have been the most hilariously amazing thing to do.

So here I am, doing everything I can, holding on to what I am, pretending I'm a Superman!

FUCK YEAH!

#10 Edited by Zidd (1846 posts) -

Nailed it with those old songs.

#11 Posted by Hockeymask27 (3683 posts) -

Superman was all I needed.

Thank God. That song brings back so many good memories.

#13 Posted by iAmJohn (6120 posts) -

Man, these really are not the choices I would've made. Superman and You are perfect and I like Heavy Medal Winner and Bring the Noise plenty, but no Euro Barge? Police Truck? Guerilla Radio? Cyco Vision? Whatever, this just falls in line with how unmemorable all the Tony Hawk soundtracks became as they went along.

It's the only song I remember from the old Tony Hawk games.

Stopped reading after "Superman" by Goldfinger. I'm satisfied.

Would you say you don't wanna hear, no you don't wanna hear, no you don't wanna hear it?

#18 Posted by SpaceInsomniac (3734 posts) -

So happy to hear Telekinesis is going to be on the soundtrack. They're one of my favorite bands to start up in the last several years.

Looks like I'll be turning

Looks like I'll be turning off/skipping the new songs.

Damn mobile site.

Goldfinger is there. That's all that matters.

#22 Posted by JarenFace (205 posts) -

While I would have loved to see both THPS1 / THPS2 soundtracks in their entirety, they brought back some solid tracks. And hey some El-P in there too? Nice.

Playing through skate 3 again and the new SSX made me realize something. These types of games really benefit from custom soundtracks. When I play extreme sports games, I can find myself spending hours on one mission in skate trying to nail it perfectly, or on one run in SSX trying to get a satisfactory score. Hearing the same few songs over and over again can really take me out of the zone.

That's why I loved SSX's use of custom soundtracks that were integrated into the game. To be, just changing the rotation of the tracks can make it seem brand new. I'm really hoping for future instalments of games in this genre, they really utilize custom soundtracks.

#24 Posted by TheRealJpoe (134 posts) -

This game needs some newer pop punk bands like Title Fight & La Dispute on the soundtrack.

#25 Edited by PeasantAbuse (5138 posts) -

I think they could have just used the THPS 1 soundtrack and everyone would have been happy.

Gonna miss you Unsane :'(

#26 Edited by MrKlorox (11209 posts) -

It's not a Tony Hawk soundtrack without a Hieroglyphics or Del tha Funkee Homosapien song. I call shenanigans.

#28 Posted by BeachThunder (11940 posts) -

Awesome. Great choices for the old songs; Tony Hawk's pretty much got me into music.

Title Fight is pop punk? News to me.

Probably a licensing issue rather than 'choices'.

So true. I think a lot of people were hoping to see this particular song.

They got a lot of great old ones, too bad not the whole soundtrack

#35 Posted by Portis (1287 posts) -

TURN IT UP.

BRIIINNNG THE NOISE!

Really though, the soundtrack is fine. They were never going to get every single song from Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1-3, nor could they ever cherry pick certain songs that would make everyone happy.

#36 Posted by GreggD (4505 posts) -

Heavy Metal Winner is such a fucking awesome song.

#37 Posted by Napalm (9020 posts) -

I remember hating a lot of the music in the original Tony Hawk games because I thought the music was ass.

#38 Posted by Vonocourt (2130 posts) -

No Cyco Vision... bummer, I'd take that over When Worlds Collide.

Even if it's shit Sucidal Tendencies I still attribute me discovering their early work to that song and Tony Hawk.

#39 Posted by doomguy77 (32 posts) -

Correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't Primus in the first Tony Hawk game? If so, this is a big step backwards. Though I'm pretty happy to see Anthrax on there.

#40 Posted by Barrock (3533 posts) -

Weird. Only one song from the first game right?

#41 Posted by Magicallystoopid (467 posts) -

@doomguy77: Yes they were, it was "Jerry Was a Race Car Driver" too.

#42 Posted by SomeDeliCook (2341 posts) -

Anyone that complains about it is completely just in their reasoning, because there's absolutely no way to play a custom soundtrack on a console this generation.

Normally I'd chime in with the fact that custom soundtracks don't start a new song when you start a new level, but apparently this version of THPS doesn't switch songs when you restart anymore.

So yeah, with that now known, it's completely pointless to criticize the soundtrack to this game. Just listen to your own music and enjoy the game.

#44 Posted by GoofyGoober (937 posts) -

Meh, don't really know all of those, but damn I want this game.

#45 Posted by zudthespud (3281 posts) -

Everyone should make their own soundtrack anyway. After playing the first Skate game I don't think I could play another skating game without "Express Yourself" by N.W.A.

#46 Posted by Stonyman65 (2707 posts) -

Anthrax and Goldfinger? Sold.

Wouldn't it be awesome if you could use your own tracks, or at the very least, buy new tracks for it RockBand style?

#47 Posted by ericjohnson (52 posts) -

I've already got the soundtracks for THPS 1, 2, and 3 loaded up and ready to go for release date. Here's hoping for custom soundtracks.

#48 Edited by Tobiass (150 posts) -

Muting the new songs compleatly. I hope you can do that.

I just wanna pretend I'm a superman

#49 Posted by 234r2we232 (3181 posts) -

No CKY? *sadface*

Still not interested in this. I'm not convinced at all these Robomondo guys can actually make a good Pro Skater game, let alone do the old games any justice. We'll see.

#50 Posted by solidlife (878 posts) -

argh I wanted this from THPS3
