That's great news for the Skate. guys. It's the best skating game ever and it still amazes me from time to time.
I love firing the thing up, picking a line or a rail that I want to stomp and pulling it off just as I wanted after 15-20 warmup. Nothing like getting just the right amount of air off a kicker, doing a complex fliptrick, and bringing it down smooth onto a grind or descent.
The fact the game places all the skill into gestures is great too, once you get your thumb used to laying down some tricks, it becomes second nature, where Tony Hawk became button spammer 200X after TH2-3.
