Just because it involved skateboards would not make it a Pro Skater clone. That's like saying ride was bring back the tony hawk franchises former glory

SilverSlug2401d ago

But it is a 'trick based' skateboarding game....that looks to play just like Tony Hawk...

Its not just him on a skateboard, that would be like Sonic Riders.

rabidpancakeburglar2401d ago

What skateboarding games aren't 'trick based' though. I get what you mean but I still think that it's more sonic meets skateboard than sonic meets pro skater

SilverSlug2401d ago

I think you are focusing too much on the title, I think it has more impact and is correct. You want people to change a 'name brand' to an off brand.

If I say "I need a band aid", we know what it means, if I change it to "I need an adhesive strip"... both phrases would accomplish the same thing... only using more mainstream terminology here.

I in no way understand what you mean by that. And in my country band aid has no meaning, it's kind of a weird name but that's america for you

If there were a lot of games, what were the others?

Well at the very beginning, the menu says there are 13 Xbox executables, and 9 are shown including sonic extreme. I looked up some of the other ones listed and found them mentioned in articles and forum threads from almost 10 years ago. The others listed are these:
BKG_DEMO_GAME
DEMO_REEL
SAMURAIJACK, Samurai Jack, obviously.
SPEEDMETAL, a car combat game made by Vision Scape, who worked on Twisted Metal 4.
VSI_DEMO
TILTRONICA, an action party game, also by Vision Scape.
GENERICGAME
VSIGENERICGAME

If all those are actually playable and this is legit, this is definately a huge find.

Canceled.......there is a God.

Kingdom Come2401d ago

Hahaha! I completely understand where you're coming from. I'm awaiting the day of an article reading "Cancelled Call of Duty...".

galgor2401d ago

Actually this is more like Streak: Hoverboard Racing.

Looks shit though, good thing it was cancelled.

Shame, it woulda probably been better than the Tony Hawk series now
