Project 8: ragdoll physics gone wild [update 1]

Update: Several readers have informed this non-Tony Hawk playing blogger that Project 8 does have a bail mode. Very well then, at least the video is still funny. One of the hellspawn from Joystiq tipped us off to a video of Project 8 yesterday. The video is basically just a long reel of spectacular...

New Skate shots, can it topple Tony?

Courtesy of our French friends at Xboxygen, we now have some screenshots of EA's Skate to go along with the shaky cam footage that Joystiq ran last month. In short, the shots looks amazing -- then again, so did the target renders for next gen Madden, and we all know how that turned out. Still, EA...

Skate footage impresses, asks Tony who?

There is some in-game footage of EA's upcoming Skate game up on YouTube, and it looks pretty flippin' sick. Sick in the good sense of the word, you know, to show how hip we are. It's being played on an Xbox 360, and you can color us extremely impressed. The game looks a lot more realistic and...

Wiimote vs. Sixaxis, Round 1: Downhill Jam vs. Project 8

While Downhill Jam and Project 8 are two very different takes on the Tony Hawk license, they share enough commonalities (ollies, grinds, rotations, grabs, etc.) to warrant a Wiimote vs. Sixaxis comparison. Downhill Jam (Wii) and Project 8 (PS3) both feature motion-controlled skating, providing the...

P8 demo alive and slo-mo kicking (and UMK3!)

Somewhere in the dark of night, the Project 8 demo finally slipped onto Xbox Live Marketplace. We were at the movies (the Prestige kicked ass) so, we're not sure if the demo made it onto Marketplace before midnight as promised or not. Of course, we're sure some of you were watching for it, and know...

Still no Project 8 demo, what gives?

The hours keep ticking by and the promised Project 8 demo is still a no show. Plenty of companies have gotten into hot water (here's looking at you 3D Realms) for missing promised demos, but this one had its own press release and everything. We would have figured that all the certification and...
