The Tony Hawk series might be back in the limelight thanks to a certain Ride-able plastic peripheral, but what of the series that forced such innovation and reinvention in the first place? The team at Black Box has been hard at work on the third installment of their surprisingly successful non-Tony Hawk branded skate sim, Skate 3, which this time around focuses on team-based gameplay. "Team up. Throw down." That's the series' new motto, and your new personal mantra as you work together with friends actual or virtual to build your own skating empire. Having already established yourself amongst the ranks of the skateboarding elite in the first two games, Skate 3 takes the next logical step by having you start your own company, building your brand and selling your boards by recruiting your own skating dream team.
