Skate 3!

500x_Skate3_1st_look_9

Kotaku have started to write a bit about Skate 3! Release is in March 2010, so still a while. So take a look at some photos and video. And also read the first impression.

Not Fundamentally Different: Some people griped that Skate 2 was really Skate 1.5. Those same people might be tempted to say that Skate 3 is really Skate 2 because when you get down to it, new tricks and new modes doesn’t necessarily make a new game. The might even call Skate 3 Skate 1.75, if they’re being particularly harsh.

New skatepark for Skate 2!

“Skate 2 has been embraced by the gaming and skateboarding community across the globe, making it the perfect stage for the Maloof Money Cup’s videogame debut,” said Joe Maloof, President of Maloof Companies. “Now players everywhere can experience the world’s greatest skateboarding championship and revel in the high-stakes excitement of the competition for themselves.”

Saturday…

Yet another Saturday. The week goes by fast. Nearly to fast. I haven’t been very social this week. Mostly been working on a Java task with binary searctrees and singlyLinkedList. It’s fun, but I can’t quite wrap my head around the search-tree. At least its fun in a very geeky kind of way, but I did have someone over last night. We made dinner and watched a movie. Bank Job, a really cool one. So thumbs up from me. As the dinner goes, we made fish. Not very often I eat it, but it’s okay. We made salomon which is the best of the fishes out there. The funny thing is that now it smellĀ  salomon from my kitchen and frying pan. Going to wash at least the pan real good with some awesome soap. Don’t want the fish taste and smell on my hamburgers I’m making today.

I’m also soon done with my new N+ level. I’m having friend of mine beta test it to see which category it ends up in. I’m thinking medium, but probably hard…Probably post picture about the level tomorrow. His time: 15,82 . My time: 55,30. Can you beat it?

I’ve also played a lot of Skate 2 latly, so much that I’m soon reaching ten thousand gamescore! Hopefully reaching it at the end of this week. “Anywho”, check out some of my cool Skate footage after the more… Planning on making a video of it all, just need to find a good flv to avi converter. Any tips?

A little something something…

I don’t think I will have time to write a real update before sometime next week, since I’m pretty busy starting up at school and I’m working this weekend. I will try to come with some minor updates about how my life is going. So tonight I have two personal updates and two game related updates!

The personal first. I’m done with the planing and building of the N+ levels. Just need to make them look better and put enough gold in them so you can make it before the time runs out. I’ll post some images when I’m done. They look really good now, and I’m pretty proud of them!
In other game related personal news, I’ve finally bought me some board games to have in my apartments. Bought three different! Ingenious, Ubongo and Candamir. As I’ve only had tried the first one, I was curios on how fun the others would be. Played them all tonight with a friend tonight and it was fun. I think they all will be a lot more fun when we are more people that play. Less isn’t always more. So tomorrow when I’m having a boardgame evening, I’ll see. Also check some pictures after the jump. Not mine, but you can at least see how they look like.

The game related news I was talking about, is that Mirrors Edge DLC is hitting XBL 29 January. The day I’m going to visit my brother and go skiing with him and my father. So guess I won’t get to try it before I get back Sunday. Guess that’s no problem. Also EA Sport is teaming up with Etnies to make Skate 2 sneakers. They looks ok. Not anything flashy. Check out Kotaku for the article and some images.
