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.

What is this, 2006? We thought the days of EA releasing cynical, lazy pieces of downloadable content were behind us. Silly us! This is, after all, EA we're talking about.
With Skate 2 shipping next week, EA released this final batch of screenshots to remind everyone of what they'll be missing if they don't get it, without an ounce of dead animal in sight.
Here's one piece of swag I won't be donating to a charity.

Skateboarding fans eager to experience the second game in EA's Skate series will find satisfaction in the coming week, as the company announces a Skate 2 demo for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
Brian does a fine job of detailing Skate 2's new online features despite being obviously uncomfortable in his role of straight man to Cuz, who comes off as so annoying that he's almost enough to make me not want to buy the game. The ability to create your own spaces and share them online with other users is definitely…
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 had no idea what skitching was until I went to the Skate 2 event last week; but now that I’ve seen it, I can’t live without it.

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…
I firmly believe that the most important aspect of a skateboarding title is its soundtrack.

When it comes to skateboarding games - you're pretty much glued to the board. Interestingly, this video shows us how in Skate 2 you will finally be able to get off the board and change things around in real time. Want to Evel Knievel 5 barrels? no problem. Get off your board and move the obstacles where you want them.…
I once tried when I was in elementary school to ride a skateboard down our driveway. All I remember is that it ended with me slamming into a tree and then running inside crying to my parents. Seeing some of the things people can do with a skateboard is just incredible and with that said - Skate 2 looks awesome. We got…
It's advertising! It's a game feature! It's both! Microsoft has announced that they are teaming up with action sports footware and apparel brand etnies, noted for being far too hip for capital letters, to bring their Goofy vs. Regular skateboarding competition to Skate 2. If I were a vp of marketing at etnies I would…
True that Skate It and it's balance board support is getting a lot of attention right now, but don't think for a second that Electronic Arts has forgotten about Skate 2.
