Skate First Impressions (360, PS3)

Eurogamer has posted their first impressions of Skate.
"Skate's aiming to give us a slick simulation, and the realism Black Box is going for is evident the second you see the game moving. Your character's weighty animations are viewed from behind a very slight fisheye lens that trails behind you low to the ground in the style of skating videos, and bits of your minimalist HUD only ever pop up after a trick or if you're near a challenge."


Test Drive Unlimited Trailer (PSP)

PSP World has posted a trailer from Test Drive Unlimited.
"Atari's Test Drive Unlimited is due to burn up the streets on March 23rd! Since PSP World's original mention back in November, this game has been highly anticipated. Not least for the fact that Test Drive Unlimited is the first online racing game on the PSP. As Atari's original game description attests."


Dave Mirra BMX Challenge Wii Bound

N-Europe has the scoop.
"Following an update through my distributor contact, Dave Mirra BMX Challenge is listed down for the Wii and is scheduled to be released in Q3 of 2007. The game will be published by Crave Entertainment and should retail at around $39.99 USD. Also, Intec has a “Sword” accessory attachment being manufactured for an April release."


Mario Strikers Charged Screenshots (Wii)

NintendoWorldReport has posted some screenshots of Mario Strikers Charged.

Other Stuff...

The cabinet guys are coming today to start on the cabinet install. Can't wait until this project is complete, it's taking its toll on me. Stayed up until 1:30 this morning cleaning out the old cabinets, moving all the crap out of the kitchen, etc.

Hope to make it 2 wins in a row tonight as we gear up for that playoff run, lol.

What's up with you?

Hmmm, no comments on the Pistons game huh?

QOTD - It looks cool, but it's a useless gimmick to me, and don't ever see myself using it after the first week.

And you'll be 1 of the 7 people who download it.

QOTD:
I don't have a PS3. And from reading about the features of this Playstation Home, I can't see it being a reason for me to take the plunge and buy one of these systems.

I wonder what'll be more popular...2 Cricket games or some soccer game that sounds like it's a foot disease.

You and TJ suck.

This download is going slow, I was hoping to a play a game before school.

edit:

Went from 15% to 16% in a matter of 15 minutes. 1 of 7 people to download, my ***.

They didn't want to waste an actual server to put the demo on, so it's coming from a computer in some guy's closet that's connected to the internet via a 14.4 baud modem.

It depends on which one of the 3 that you purchase.

TJ are you sure the demo isn't being ran off of your PC?


QOTD: I think that PS "Home" could be cool. Sony is taking the right approach right now, if you can't beat your competition (both of them), might as well copy what both have and take it in a bit of a different direction.
