    Busy year for skateboarding games. Pity they aren't doing TH 3 it's probably my favorite.

    This is the one video game nostalgia announcement I've been long waiting for :)

    HD was a travesty, but this looks like it's having more effort put into it and Vicarious Visions have done a good job on the Crash remasters.

    While I too think THPS3 is the peak of the series, a lot of that was down to the revert basically perfecting the core gameplay. That's being added here. THPS2 probably has the smartest and most iconic level design of the lot - THPS3 has great stuff but also marked the point where things started getting that bit more convoluted. So the combination of the best level design and the best mechanics is a promising prospect.

    Barring a disaster, I'll be losing hours to this in September.

    Pro Skater 3 was the pinnacle of the series for me, though I do like THPS2 as well. Not that I didn't like the first one, but it didn't date as well.

    Any excuse to post this EDIT: There is some bitter irony in the meaning of this song 20 years later.

    Yupp! Session, this and a possible Skate 4, after being so thirsty for a skate game for years!

    Tony sounded very optimistic at devs VV to handle remastering 3 and 4 as well but i see people actually making those parks in the park creator and sharing them anyway.

    Was gas, Tony was adamant on keeping it close to the originals as possible.... except for reverts, they had to be in :) also, they added any tricks and mechanics from 3 and 4 that they felt added quality of life.

    Really can't wait for this, i wonder how much they're gonna charge.

    Lots of info here "many of the original songs return". WHICH ONES!!!

    Also, out says 40 dollar price tag and 50 for deluxe edition. That's a tasty price. Was fully sure it would be 70 since it is 2 games.

    Same as Crash N-Sane, and Spyro. Full remake of three games but was only €40.

    Do a THUG 1&2 remake and introduce gaming's greatest villain, Eric fúcking Sparrow, to a new generation.

    I know THUG gets a bad rep but i loved it. Loved the story of a guy stealing your footage and you need to prove yourself.

    The Jackassification of THPS is one of the saddest downfalls of a great game series. THPS4 was bad, but THUG completely lost the essence of the series in favour of dumb gimmicks.

    I should stress I have no problem with Jackass on its own terms, just stay out of THPS :pac:

    I just remembered 3 had Darth Maul

    Saw something in the comments of that video, that THPS 1 & 2 have now been on every console gen since they were released in on the gen 5 PS1. Xbox got them in 2X for Gen 6, and then the HD collection for gen 7, and now on PS4/One for gen 8.

    Yep if this is a success would love to see THUG 1 & 2 released afterwards as well.

    Some absolute tunes in that. I looked this up yesterday as was gonna trade in ghost of tsushima against it in gamestop and saw they are selling it for 70 when even the psn store is only charging 45. The *****.


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,756 ✭✭✭Thecageyone


    Fun fact: though I was already into Metal and punk before the original release of these games, it was only after playing them I became a Bad Religion fan! Pity only one of their tracks made it in, their music really suits the skate boarding scene

    Jealous man, the videos of it look so smooth, I'm mad to try out out but will be getting a physical copy.


  • Registered Users Posts: 23,126 ✭✭✭✭J. Marston


    I really hope they do THPS3. Put countless hours into it.


  • Registered Users Posts: 12,172 ✭✭✭✭MadYaker


    This is a blast from the past. Which one had the cars?

    Think you can pre-order and cancel it and still play the demo.

    ffs remember the days when you'd get a demo of this game on a magazine cover and buy it then if you liked it ?

    I think on PlayStation, the money goes back into your psn wallet, not your credit card so not worth it for me. Like Enfilade said, i remember the good ol days c when demos were free. Still getting this on launch but Activision would be selling a lot more copies of they key people play a whole 2 minute demo.


  • Registered Users Posts: 23,126 ✭✭✭✭J. Marston


    How the fúck do Playstation get away with that? You should be allowed to cancel an order.


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,412 ✭✭✭griffdaddy


    It's a weird one alright. 'Here's a demonstration of the game you've already bought anyway'. I'd say it'll trickle out to general release in the coming days. They were giving it out free to the first 2000 people who bought a Tony Hawk burrito in Chipotle in America.

    I don't think I knew anything about Tony Hawk or the series until I played the THPS2 demo. I ended up playing most of the series as a result of that demo disk :)

    Bienvenue à la cuvette de Marseille

    Preorder bonuses are a silly marketing practice as it is, but making a demo a preorder bonus is extra.
