Only EA could create a skateboarding title so pretty that it has me flashing back to a Christian Slater movie from 1989.

Actually, I'm not sure that is true, now that I've typed it. Gleaming the Cube occupies one of those default slots in my brain, just like Breakin' and Geggy Tah's "Whoever You Are." These are the places my brain goes to when it wants to avoid whatever it is I am thinking about at the time. So these new screens aren't so much forcing me to think of the film as much as they are nudging me into a familiar gear.

Still, lovely screens, aren't they?
