Video games that rely on a lot of physics-driven character animations tend to have some pretty funny glitches. Last week, we shared a selection of the most awesome classic sport game glitches, so it only made sense to do a follow-up, featuring skateboarding games.
This ten-minute clip, by Helix Snake, is in order, with #50 at the beginning. So you can imagine how good things are getting by the time we get to the top spot.
Inspired by the replay modes in EA's Skate series, friends Brandon and Darren decided to put the controllers down and go and make a real skate video just like it. So they did. This is it.
Sure, laugh at some of these if you want. Others will haunt your dreams tonight, so terrifying are their deformations of the human form.
Can't get enough Street Fighter? Love making a positive impact in the world? Then today's your lucky day.
The heyday of skateboarding games is past, the head of EA, the company that makes Tony Hawk rival franchise Skate, told Kotaku in an interview this week.
EA has issued its latest round off layoffs today, describing them as "season roll-offs," which sounds much more pleasant. According to sources claiming knowledge of the situation, EA Canada, developer of Skate and NBA Elite, bore the brunt of those cuts.
As a lapsed fan of the skateboarding video game, I dedicated little personal interest to Electronic Arts' Skate series. What a mistake that was, because as this lowlight reel shows, Skate is great comedy.
The library of Xbox 360 games available "on demand" has expanded by two today with the addition of EA's original Skate and Brave? Brave: A Warrior's Tale? Something like that.
To go along with the AJ's preview, here's the first batch of screens for Skate 3, along with a trailer featuring a horribly edited version of Steel Panther's "Eyes of a Panther."
Sounds like EA are already hard at work on Skate 3. Not the most shocking thing you'll read today, since it is an EA title, but still, it's a great series, so news of more games is always welcome.
I picked up Skate on the cheap with some post-Christmas cash. Am absolutely loving it. Can't remember the last time skateboarding in a game was so much fun. So I'm looking forward to Skate 2!
I love Skate. I love it because it’s about skating, and not about riding toilets with Jackass characters. Which, while we’re on the subject, is the reason I stopped playing Tony Hawks.
You're getting a double dose of Skate dates today, with the Wii-exclusive Skate It being officially dated for a mid-November release earlier today. The proper sequel, Skate 2, also has a new date, arriving in January 2009, according to the Mirror's Edge retail box according to IGN. The specific day on which EA "drops…
We gave you an early look at Skate 2 a few weeks ago, now we look at the controls for Skate It. I am really excited to see how the Wii remote works as a skateboard. It sounds like they are going the same route SSX Blur took on the Wii. Expect it this holiday on Wii and Nintendo DS.
EA's "city-state" label structure can be a little tricky sometimes, in that I'll bet it's hard for them sometimes to pick what game goes under what label. For example, you'd probably guess that Skate might be an EA Sports label game, ad not an EA Games label game. EA Games global marketing VP Mike Quigley explains in…
TrustyGamer has a point. Photorealism is a good thing, but can it really be an escape from reality - especially for ostensibly lighthearted fare - when the color palette it draws on represents the depressing color scheme of our own worlds? Increasingly, that seems to be the case in every title, including EA's Skate,…
Yeah, Skate 2 is coming. We knew that. This is EA, after all, and it'll never miss a chance to pump out a sequel. But we have to question the wording in this dramatic teaser trailer for the skateboarding sequel. "We're dropping the deuce"? Isn't that a euphemism for, you know, going? Number two? Big potty? Caca?
