    Hardcore does get pretty frustrating at times, but I really dig doing low-pop tricks when I can.

    To me, it looks smoother when dude just barely gets enough height to land a trick, unlike easy mode which seems to launch you 6 feet in the air then drop you back down. Normal is pretty decent, but interferes when trying to manual narrow surfaces and the like.

    Yeah I was really proud of the rail work I had on those two clips I posted. The second one was probably an hour of that same spot.

    I just learned that down on the d-pad makes pedestrians run away. That is the best thing. They always seem to congregate around where I land.

    Thanks for the invite xzzy. I'll probably be hopping on for a few hours tonight in the next 30 minutes or so if anyone is around.

    Edit: So this was interesting... In a 1up game against Cardiel. All tied up at 1u each. I'm setting the score and do this:

    I just made an early version of "Dongtown" featuring as close as I could get to making a wang pool. That shit is hard (HEH.) Also it's almost maxed out completely in props and terrain.

    The screenshot shows everything BUT the pool. Tell me what you guys think, I tried to make some decent lines in it.

    So, I loved Skate but never played Skate 2. I just watched the review on gametrailers and things look pretty good - yay for being able to get off your board! Some of the footage they showed has me worried that the environments are leaning toward a wacky tony hawk vibe (maybe I just saw some "mega park" or something). Reassure me that I can still skate around in realistic areas that are a lot of fun. And tell me that Skate 3 >= Skate 2 so I can feel good about skipping the 2nd one.

    Yes to it being better that 2. Yes to there being lots of realistic-ish spots (realistic in the sense that skateboarding is really popular in the area, so almost everywhere is somewhat designed to skate on.) Although there is a little bit of that "wacky" seeping in. It's not really prevalent, but I think they have been going a little too overboard with some spots.

    Although the did introduce Hardcore mode which has some pretty realistic skate physics behind it.

    What's up the the website's listing of board sales? Are those just for online even though it says total? It has me currently listed at 475,938 total boards sold when at the end of last week I had over 600k total when I check in game and after last night actually have over 850k. Not a huge issue by any means, but it's bugging me a little.

    Yes, fuck the black box OTL. And fuck the mooflah or whatever it's called on. 5000 points on a single trick? Fuck you right up the ass, game.

    I really, really dislike how you can only get credit for tricks that are on the screen. You can't open with the hard ones, so you have to waste a bunch of time doing all the easy shit to unlock the hard ones.. at which point you're short on time and scrambling to pull it off.

    Cool, that's pretty much what I wanted to hear.

    I loved how the first one had the suburbs, downtown/commercial, and industrial areas all that felt like real spots. Then they sprinkled in some skate parks and it was good to go. As long as I can free skate around in 3 and have it actually feel like a regular city - with some crazy shit here and there - I'll be stoked. If the entire city looks purposefully contrived to let you grind the entire thing I'd be disappointed. Basically, I'm not looking for the fantasy skate world crap, just let me skate around and discover some cool spots to try tricks on.

    Hell, whenever I go and play Skate I usually end up back at the school doing tricks on those rails - cause that's just some classic shit right there.

    Skate 3 is much more open to skaters than previous games.. I don't think I've seen a single spot that said "you can't skate here". Everything seems like it was designed to be gapped or ground.

    It only feels like a real city if you can suspend your disbelief.

    There are some spots that feel "real" if you hunt around, but nowhere near the amount that previous games had. For the most part it's perfectly aligned stair cases with perfectly laid out hand rails, flower boxes perfectly placed at the bottom of a hill, convenient ramps every time there's a staircase.. stuff like that.

    The skate 3 graphics are legit.. the reason the skate 2 one could be hacked was because the communication between the creator and the server wasn't encrypted. When they fixed it, they started using RSA encryption on the images. Skate 3 continues this behavior.. I don't know that there's anyone playing skate with enough determination to break an RSA key.

    I've made up a logo that's suitable for clothing. Has a PA style logo with "Dongtown" written and sillioettes of Gabe and Tycho on a light blue background. Should be under "LoD Shadows".

    I bet it's technically possible. The graphics creater encodes your data into an xml file.. if one could extract this xml file and insert into a skate 3 data stream, it might work. Really depends on if the file format changed or not.

    Is it worth the effort? I'm not sure. :)
