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

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?

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 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.
