Whoa Jason Lee

looks like they're making some great improvements

My biggest problem with Skate 2 was that some of the challenges were just impossible. I mean, literally impossible. I remember there being one "H-O-R-S-E" type challenge that you were forced to glitch because it was just too hard.

Ahh I love the Skate series. Can't want for May! Red Dead and Skate 3 are gonna be great.

Posted by Camurai

I remember seeing all of these things in past Skate/THPS games...
Minus Coach Frank of course.

Jason Lee was in project 8 too. Used to Skate pro himself. With bleach blonde hair lol.

I like doing Manuels

Can't wait for all the crazy hardcore-mode trick videos this will inspire.

I want to see more hardcore mode footage.

I actually did that without glitching. Determination is something I have. I'm not going to lie and say I enjoyed it, though.

"One of the things we wanted to do with Skate 3 is follow in the footsteps of Tony Hawk and run the series into the ground." 
 
Fixed.
Posted by Killroycantkill

Some of these features are things that have been in the game since the first one.... Oh well.

Posted by CaptainFish

Good thing coach Frank invented the sketchy/clean landing and manual gauge by stealing it from THPS. It's clearly an improvement but don't pretend it's your invention.

Posted by 234r2we232
@Killroycantkill:  Well. In the second game, they took out some features that were in the first just so they could charge you for them.
 
I still love the original skate. game. Just has an unmatched purity to it.

Man I used to respect this dude. Fucking Scientology.
 
It's not so much of a draw having him in your product nowadays.
 
 
The hardcore mode sounds really cool though.

Which of course is why they added a Hardcore Sim mode, cause you know, they wanted to be like Hawk.

I love the Skate games but I smell multiple difficulty set achievements coming which are the worst.
 
Always good to see Jason Lee involved with skating, even if it is a video game. I need to see what he's been doing with Stereo recently.

Looks like Jeremy Piven.

I'm more referring to the idea that they are going to burn the series out.  This sort of game does not need an annual release, it isn't a sports game that needs to update rosters and players every season (which I'd argue isn't really needed).  Like Tony Hawk without solid steps forward after a few releases they're going to run out of ideas and ruin the series.  Don't be surprised when Skate 9 requires some sort of plastic toy to work.

But kinda sounds like Jason Lee.

If there's a GB Skate team (which I highly doubt) let me know. Love the Skate series.

Posted by ErrantElement

Ok so Skate is turning into Tony Hawk Pro Skater... 
 
Cool.  
 
Does this mean Tony Hawks next game will be less like RIDE and more like Skate now?

Posted by Terjay

I still don't care about this series. I really tried to play the second one and it cost me a wireless controller.

Until you can do 900's off of every single jump, with several flips and grabs thrown in, I wouldn't worry about this turning into THPS
Posted by Osiris

Looks alright and although I got really frustrated in the end with Skate 2 I did really love the game, but just roaming around, finding a spot and owning it.

@DivineCC:  Spreading Scientology to the masses. That's the Coaches secret agenda.

XD of course not. Tony Hawk RIDE 2 will be next one coming out.. that game is awesome!
Posted by Branthog

But #2 just fucking came out this past year. I haven't even played it in forever. Give us some fucking time before you roll this shit out like it's the next Madden roster update for fuck's sake.

If you made a team, and skated on hardcore mode, I'd join.

It is, in fact, Jason Lee.
Posted by MrRedwine

I don't understand all the hate for this game.  It is a whole new city, new features, new stuff like crazy.  I don't think it's too soon at all.  Just wait until it goes on sale if you think it's too soon now.

Posted by MeatSim

This seems like an excellent use of Jason Lee.

Posted by Niccoles
@Rewcastle: A My Name is Earl reference should definitely be in the game. Or crabman should be a sponsor.
Edited by iWonder

For some reason, Coach Frank kinda reminds me of Billy Mays.

Posted by CrazedJoker

Yo son, that is Jason Lee.
