The sublime simplicity of Skate 3

The analog sticks on my PlayStation 3 controller refuse to stay in place. They're loose and unruly to an absurd degree. The right stick drifts upwards, slowly and surely, without a thumb to guide it. When I apply pressure to it, the stick c...

Skate 3 heads off to Hawaii

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 giving you more s...

Absorb this Skate 3 TV ad into your brain

Skate 3 co-op reminds us what skating is all about

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 like to hang out ...

New screens of Skate 3 emerge

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 all about transp...

Skate 3 grinds towards shelves May 11

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 14. When EA se...

Skaters allowed in Skate 3's university setting

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, grind to your ...

Skate 3 devs explain what 'Port Carverton' is all about

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," an urban seri...
