Holy hell, he's looking old!

#3 Posted by addictedtopinescent (3645 posts) -

Damn, now I want to buy this. Those levels bring back soooo many memories. If they decide to put the Cruise Ship Level in there I'm sold.

@Cincaid: Oh god, you're right! Looks like my childhood is over.

I don't know how I feel about $5 for 3 levels, as nice as those levels sound (I was pretty big on THPS3).

LMAO @, "so you can jam with your brooos!"

The guy's barely 44, but shit, man. He looks old.

Tokyo, man. Tokyo.

$5 seems legit to me. 3 levels with new career goals, projectives, and gaps sounds cool. Though I'd certainly appreciate at least one or two more levels from 3.

Like Tokyo.

COME ON MAN NEON FUCKING GLASS THAT YOU CAN SKATE ON

Haha yeah. Loved that.

It always surprises me how old he looks.

Yeah, I use Tony Hawk as a measuring device to gauge just how over the 90s are. Every time he gets a new gray hair, the 90s feel further away. :( I rue the day he starts getting liver spots.

Edit: He's only 44? That makes me feel better. Guy's just aging poorly.

#10 Posted by Tylea002 (2295 posts) -

Do I care? Do I care? The game was a bitter disappointment, and that's only 3 levels, so do I really care? Will I let myself get hurt again?

Yes. It should really come with Ace of Spades, though.

He already looks a little liver spotty. And he's always had those sunken-in eyes, so he looks ten years older than he actual does. And he's only 44, so he's really not as old as you think, but he definitely looks like a guy who, in like five years, will age about fifteen years.

#12 Edited by aurahack (2264 posts) -

@ShaggE: I'll assume that thrashing your body around since your adolescence will not do aging any favors. D: I'd say he doesn't look all that bad for someone his age who has also spent all of his adult life on a wheeled wooden plank.

Yes. It should really come with Ace of Spades, though.

And If You Must.

Oh man that THPS3 Motorhead throwback would be enough to sell the game for me. It could be its own DLC -- I'd buy it.

AAAAGGGGGGGGGHHHHH! It's still freaky when he says his own name like that.

Still not buying, sorry T-Dawg.

Replace Canada with either Rio or Tokyo and it would be perfect.

Yeah, I couldn't believe it when I saw he was only 44. He looked like he was in his early 30s back in his heyday, so that's kind of crazy.

I should start using Jaleel White instead of Tony Hawk. At least he looks his age (as depressing as that is).

Haha! Poor guy. I keep hoping for him to make his big comeback, NPH style.

This game seems like a DLC platform that was masquerading as a full game. And I'm surprisingly OK with that. Three levels for $5 seems like a fair price considering I'll be playing them to death.

Well the man himself said that the intention with THPS HD is to provide a platform from which to build with additional content, be they remade levels or new ones. 
Anyway, this looks cool, airport looks a little dark though. I liked the bright colour pallette they used for that level originally.
#21 Posted by Demoskinos (14562 posts) -

Man is such a sweetheart. And $5 for 3 levels seems pretty damn reasonable especially because they are adding the revert and possibly other skaters? If they keep adding in packs from other Tony Hawk games this game could have a long tail to it.

#22 Posted by mosespippy (4033 posts) -

PS1 version of Canada is better than PS2 version of Canada. Actually, so is Los Angeles and Rio.

#23 Posted by RIDEBIRD (1230 posts) -

I hope this is in already on PC release. I love those levels.

#24 Posted by AlisterCat (5482 posts) -

Canada and Airport were my favourite levels from THPS3 so I'm happy.

#25 Posted by zombie2011 (4968 posts) -

3 maps for $5 bucks is pretty good.

#26 Edited by Vexxan (4615 posts) -

$5 sounds like a good deal, I've always liked Tony Hawk as a person because he actually seems to care about his games.

#27 Posted by Vextroid (1358 posts) -

Those are the good maps of THPS3. Would of liked some Foundry in their though.

#28 Posted by Joe_Wildheart (74 posts) -

I would of preferred the Cruise Ship to Canada but still a decent selection. Hopefully there will be more DLC including Foundry, Cruise Ship and Tokyo.

#29 Posted by mscupcakes (612 posts) -

As long as they're bringing back Airport then I'm happy, I used to play the hell out of that level in THPS3 and THUG2.

#30 Posted by Hunter5024 (5543 posts) -

No suburbia? That basically killed any chance I had of buying this game.

Canada and Airport are great picks, but WHAT THE FUCK NO CRUISE SHIP

I concur. I'd trade the cruise ship for Tokyo. I'd also really like Skate Heaven from THPS2.

#34 Posted by Demoskinos (14562 posts) -

@mosespippy: Yeah, I remember my first exposure to THPS 3 was in fact the PSone version since I didn't have a PS2 at the time. Actually, I don't think I've ever played the proper THPS 3 or THPS 4.

#35 Posted by rachelepithet (1349 posts) -

Canada, Airport, LA, and revert for $5 is worth more to me than that whole $15 original package.

Thrilled to see that gif is making its rounds around GB now.

I am super conflicted about this package...I will probably pick it up once the THPS3 levels are released.

#40 Posted by bobafettjm (1404 posts) -

I will be all over this when it is released.

#41 Posted by ComradeKhan (687 posts) -

Oh man. I haven't bought this yet but the nostalgia just keeps building. I played more THPS 1,2 & 3 than any other game ever (easily). As soon as they showed a picture of Canada from THPS 3 in that video i got a massive flashback and heard  "Blitzkrieg Bop" by the Ramones playing in my head... Where's Burnside though?!?!?!

#42 Posted by C10H16N5O13P3 (5 posts) -

In his interview he combined statements of the HD, then said with the DLC comes new levels, riders, and tricks (which I assume from his statement of levels being; Airport, Los Angeles, and Canada), but confused if the new riders are just each persons avatar, Emily Westlund, and Jake Harrison from the original HD release or will there be more to choose from with the DLC. I imagine there won't be more levels than the three mentioned above with upcoming DLC, but maybe they will pitch in some local split screen functionality since I have read a lot of reviews where people were upset that it wasn't included.

I am not familiar with all the default tricks that came with the plethora of earlier releases, but can see all the tricks available with this release.....and haven't made enough cash to unlock all of them yet anyways.

Most people who loved the earlier releases have probably blown through all these 7 levels with all the characters in the first evening, but for me I never played on consoled until this year and never bought any of the releases for the PC so the $15.00 was a damn good price for a game that's new to me. I just wish some of the Xbox friends I have made since I got the console owned the game so we could play together.

I liked Canada, but it would be nice to see Tokyo included as well.

Yes. It should really come with Ace of Spades, though.

And If You Must.

Ahem.

I'm super excited to play Canada and Airport. I also have a huge soft spot for Skater Island, though, I wish that was one of the levels.

Those were great levels, especially Canada.
