Skate


Tony Hawk and Shaun White frown as Electronic Arts' John Riccitiello talks. The CEO has told Kotaku that he feels the skateboarding game phenomenon may have "run its course as the representative example" in the broader "actio...


Skate 3 is a skateboarding game, and really the only way to make a skateboarding game better is more skateboarding. Thus the new Danny Way "Hawaiian Dream" DLC for the game should theoretically make it better because it's gi...


Even the hero of Dead Space needs to have some fun every now and again. That's right! Isaac Clarke is a playable character in Skate 3. Just enter the code "DEADSPACETOO" in order to play as Isaac and to get a special board to...


You're probably playing Skate 3 right now (and I totally recommend it), but if you're looking to play on the go, consider Skate It for the iPhone and iPod touch. The game was released on the App Store this week, and will run ...




While Activision was busy driving its Tony Hawk Pro Skater franchise into the ground, Electronic Arts quietly snuck in with its own title and stole the old pro’s crown. Skate was everything the Tony Hawk series was n...


Skate 3 is out today, so the chances of you finding a used copy at your local shop are slim. But if you're holding out to save a few bucks on a second-hand copy, you might want to reconsider. One of the key features of Skate ...


Gamers are so demanding, so three new games have hit Xbox 360 "Games on Demand" this week -- Prince of Persia, Skate 2, and Brothers in Arms: Hell's Highway. Prince of Persia and Skate 2 will run you $19.99, and now's the per...


EA has released the Skate 3 TV ad and it barely shows the game off! A majority of the commercial is of people going bat sh*t crazy as others are skateboarding on the ramp. The commercial ends with a few seconds of actual Ska...


This new trailer for Skate 3 that EA sent out to us is really good. It's an example of what cooperative play could be like for you and your friends. What's so effective about it is how it captures the essence of what it's li...


Reminder time: as of today, the demo for Skate 3 is available via PlayStation Network and Xbox LIVE. It's got single-player for those of you -- much like me -- who passed on the last game, multiplayer for people wanting to me...


When I was eleven or twelve, I was always on a skateboard. I wasn't one of those kids who was really attempting to learn how to ollie and kickflip, though I'll admit to an occasional fantasy that I might someday. No, it was a...


Electronic Arts has re-confirmed that a demo for Skate 3 will hit Xbox LIVE Marketplace and PlayStation Network on April 15. The demo will feature a small piece of the game's "University District," inside the game's new open...


Did you know there was a booth for Skate 3 at PAX East? I didn't, but with its looming May 11th release date, it was a pretty safe assumption that there would be. At this very special Skate 3 booth, much like many of the boot...


Forcing me to write a stupid skate trick-related headline, Electronic Arts has revealed that Skate 3 will hit North American shelves on May 11. The rest of the world will have to hang tight, as it'll release worldwide on May...


Grinding on books is hard work. In fact, some skaters would argue that it's "totally impossible, bro" -- something about the "ledges" being too thin. But you can rock out on a library's front yard. Or in the case of Skate 3,...


Destructoid got to check out Skate 3 last week but seeing as how we brought you a pretty detailed preview already, I'll just touch on a couple of things that weren't covered. Other than the new focus on team play online or o...


I haven't the slightest idea what a "grind-to-pump-to-tranny" is, but I'm guessing it's an important thing that skaters do. It's at least something Black Box Studios thought about when constructing Skate 3's "Port Carverton,...


Two old games have hit Xbox 360 "Games on Demand" today -- Brave and Electronic Art's "Tony Hawk killer," Skate. Brave will run you $29.99, and is relatively new in "Games on Demand" years -- it shipped to stores last August....


Activision’s Tony Hawk franchise was already in decline by the time the original Skate came out back in 2007, but EA Black Box’s analog stick control scheme and focus on realism accelerated Tony Hawk’s desc...


Hopefully, by now you've had a chance to check out my preview on Skate 3. Looks to be a fairly solid entry into the series, one fans are surely going to get a kick out of come next May. Anyway, here's the trailer for the gam...


It's funny looking back on the old battle between skateboarding videogames. Ever since the original Tony Hawk, plenty of skateboarding games have come and gone, and other than the eternal old bird itself, not many of them hav...


To no real surprise, Electronic Arts has announced that Black Box-developed Skate 3 will ship for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in May of 2010. This time the game has a focus on cooperative play, the game's tag-line "Team Up. T...


No surprises here, but it looks like Electronic Arts is working on -- or at least thinking about -- a new game in the Skate franchise. One of the dudes over at skateboarding Web site Epicly Strife dropped some info on the new...


Today, Electronic Arts announced that on July 9, you’ll be able to download the “Maloof Money Cup Pack” for Skate 2. I’ll admit, I don’t know what the hell the Maloof Money Cup is, but according ...


A beefy (and kickin’ rad) patch is now available for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions of EA Black Box’s Skate 2. The list of fixes, tweaks, and improvements is so large I had to include it post-jump. Below ...


Back in August, Dyson gave us a hands-on preview of Skate 2 that summed up the new additions to the series fairly well, and so I invite you to sit down by the campfire, and let me tell you in grand detail how the game pans ou...


We’ve all been waiting for Skate 2 for a long time. Ever since the original skate. revolutionized skateboarding videogames back in 2007, gamers have been looking forward to a bigger, better, and more badass sequel. Oh...


Electronic Arts has sent us some new Skate 2 screens, no doubt getting us amped up for the game's January 21 release. We get new screenshots. Stephen Totilo at MTV Multiplayer, on the other hand, the dude gets steaks. Yes, EA...

EA Black Box's Skate 2 hits the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 sooner rather than later -- January 21 to be exact. It looks like a demo for the game is coming even sooner, at least on the Xbox LIVE Marketplace. According to ...


With Skate 2's release right around the corner, Electronic Arts is making sure we don't forget by wishing us a happy holiday with some new Skate 2 screenshots. Actually, what EA PR are calling it is a "screens blowout.&q...


[video]114904:894[/video] You remember Skate's live-action introduction, right? Y'know, the one where your character gets rushed to the hospital after being run over while a montage of famous skaters is displayed on-screen. Y...


[video]113283:802[/video]Take note, everyone: this is how you create a proper developer's diary.In the embedded video above, we are greeted by EA Black Box's Chris Parry, who proceeds to interview himself about Skate 2's spar...


Wow, OK. So Skate 2, the sequel to Electronic Arts' genre-reinventing skateboarding title is coming out soon. Like, January 23 soon. If you can't wait, starting next month, you'll be able to use a web-based Graphics Crea...


[video]105587:447[/video]Not being able to walk in the original Skate was a major pain in the ass, but as evidenced in the video above, EA Black Box is more than making up for it in Skate 2. Not only will you be able to maneu...


[video]102509:307[/video]Yes, this is definitely a video for a Skate game, no doubt about it. Gander at people skating through parks and down streets, handplanting, and cracking testicles on a handrail. Why, with the exceptio...


[video]98216:121[/video]Just the other day, it seemed EA Black Box came out with Skate. I remember playing it not all that long ago, and being pretty impressed by the analog only controls. I was a fan of the first few Tony Ha...


This really isn't a huge surprise, since IGN accidentally barfed up the news last month, but Electronic Arts have officially announced that they will be bringing their Skate franchise to the Wii and Nintendo DS. Called S...


Earlier today, IGN dropped the news that Electronic Arts will be bringing the Skate franchise to the Nintendo DS and Wii. Called Skate It!, the game will ... oh, wait! IGN weren't supoosed to tell the world about it just yet....
