So.....no new moves? Just "community"? I love the skate franchise....but I really cant see much of an improvement.

At 1.24, that guy is surely dead.

So...who won?

Posted by Heartagram

These games got way too frustrating at a point for me that i just didn't want to finish it

Posted by MysteriousBob

I have a question. Why is every single Skate character, without exception, a massive bellend?

Posted by fwylo

Teams Fresh and Hesh? They got creative there I see.
 
And whats the deal with the guy luging at the end.  They go off the ramp and he's standing up?

Posted by TeflonBilly

Damn, that back tattoo to that one guy on Team Fresh is horrendous.
I'm gonna play as him and throw myself off cliffs.

@TheCrazedMadman: There are new moves, they just didn't show them in this trailer. If you watch the first trailer, you'll see a few of them. Its supposed to be close to real skating, so theres only so many moves they can add before they run out. Judging from the first trailer, they're pretty much at that point.

I want to be in the last crew.

Hesh and Fresh?  
I loved the hell out of Skate 2, but I don't like this whole "TEAM UP AND SKATE!" thing.

Posted by Synthballs

I hope they don't start overly concentrating on story. Don't get me wrong, I loves me a story and all but, as the Tony Hawks series has taught us, Story can make a game suffer pretty bad (Here's looking at you Underground 1 & 2)

Posted by MarkWahlberg

The only thing about Skate that sucked was the multiplayer, so I like where this is going. They would have the team names rhyme, though.

Posted by JJWeatherman

Oh my god... this looks absolutely awful. 
 
I knew somehow the greatness of "Skate." would never go anywhere worthwhile. Lets just hope the series doesn't get as bad as the Tony Hawk series.

Looks like that 'beat my points' mode from THPS... with other people watching.

Posted by BagSquad

Oh man, that looks awful. It looks exactly the same as Skate 2.

I couldn't really get into the original Skate but thought they cleaned up a lot with Skate 2. That said, I think EA would have to make a lot of changes to get me into Skate 3.

This is a really bad way to create hype for a game

Why they have to put out a game yearly is beyond me.

Hesh vs Fresh! Flesh! Resh! Rezesh! Mesh! 
 
Naming... tips.... :|

Sorry to see it looks like they're Tony Hawking this franchise. Skate 1 was great and 2 improved just about everything from the first really making it feel like the definitive skating game. If all they're adding is "character", than no thank you sir. I remember the first skate footage I saw was just gameplay of a skater doing some unexageraterated tricks and it totally sold me. This is unfortunate.

Meh, looks like I'm skipping both Tony Hawk and this game this year.

But Mr. Miyagi, who will become these young souls' zen master of guidance?

When I heard the cougar cry, I literally thought that a large cat was going to leap down on the skaters.  For a split-second I was actually interested in what was going to happen.  Imagine, skating for your life while a cougar chases you through the city.
Posted by MachoFantastico

This looks bad, don't they realize this was one of the reasons the Tony Hawk franchise died off? 
 
Seriously, Team Fresh vs Team Hesh? Could that sound more dull.

Posted by BranDong

this looks fucking lame!  and I don't even feel like explaining why i feel this way

Posted by RiddleBrother

Man, I fucking loved skate 1 and 2. Really, i still play skate 2. but i can't help but feel that graphically, this just looks bad. you can't jsut keep recycling the engine, adding new environments and calling it a new game. I remain cautiously optimistic, but part of me feels like this is where the series nukes the fridge.

It´s called the Activision Syndrome. It´s a disease where money causes one to rape franchises over over until theyre sucked dry.  
 
You can be a victim of this disease as well.  
Posted by Odog4ever

For those jumping to conclusions over this trailer, just because they don't focus on new moves, in this particular trailer, doesn't mean there aren't any. Why would  they blow there load so early? Also a brand new city and new features,  justifies a new game. They had decent post game DLC support for Skate 2, unlike with Skate 1.  To expect every developer to be like Criterion and release a years worth of DLC after launch is unrealistic.

Posted by Hexogen

The skate team thing could potentially be interesting, as my friend and I had had a ton of fun doing the freeskate challenges in Skate 2 together, but this trailer honestly doesn't do much to get me excited.

You mean "Madden Syndrome". It is standard fare for an EA Sports title, which both are.

My thoughts exactly... Frankly, Skate 1 was one of the games i've played the most ever (time-wise), now, a while after it's release I've gotten kind of upset at Skate 2 being released pre-maturely, if they just would have tweaked it a bit more it could have been just as fresh and good as Skate 1 was.
Man... This just feels like tony hawk but with less 1080-quad-kick-flips-mc-twist.
 
And... Just for the record, I think the 'Madden economies of scale' theory, which is employed by many distributors, will in the long run prove to be detrimental to the industry. Done ranting now.

Skate is becoming Tony Hawk.......  and  Tony Hawk is becoming Skate.......

Madden is American Football, right?  even though I never play sport games, I'm fairly sure they benefit from the roster update. A skateboarding has no benefits from an early sequel.

@JJWeatherman:
I have to agree this trailer was terrible. I LOVED Skate. and Skate2 didn't apeal to me that much so I hope they make Skate 3 much better. But judging by this it mght have gotten worse. I guess we'll have to wait until May
Posted by Killroycantkill

At around 1:12 that guy lands that Air Walk pretty high up. I wonder if the landing retrictions have been played around with because you couldn't land anything that high in Skate 2 without a sloped landing zone.

Posted by ChromaticPanther

Hesh vs Fresh? More like white guys vs black guys. Anyone else notice that? Skate 3: Race Wars.

Posted by headcase

Nothing will ever topple THPS4 :P

@ChromaticPanther: 
 
I started to notice after like the 3rd shot of a black guy bail.
Posted by Derecto

meh, i love skateboarding games, but this yearly games fever is making  the skate brand, pointless.

Posted by KING_CANVAS

 
Cant wait!!!!!!!

Posted by Arcturus

Airwalk down a stairset? serious?? Even the Tony Hawk series isn't that revolting. I don't see Skate's original audience (actual skateboarders) being even remotely interested in this mess

Posted by SHADOWINFINITE

AWESOME!

Posted by Fascismo

When the first Skate came out, I remember being really impressed with how fluid the animations were. What happened? Did everything get choppier or am I having a nostalgia attack?

Posted by Gunner612

metal.. and skateboarding?
 
Those two dont mix at all. 
 
I miss punk.
