Yeah, the stunt on twitter was pretty much planned all along.

Also, game will cost $40 on Switch & $50 for next gen.

I'm not excited because of a bunch of Twitter posts. I'm excited because I freaking love THPS, and I'm super happy this game is coming to Switch. :-D

u/QuietlyLosingMyMind 6d ago

Same, I lost so much time to THPS when it came out. I'm freaking stoked.

28

u/CaspianX2 6d ago

I feel like I may be alone in that my favorite games in the series are THPS 3 and 4. I hope Activision Blizzard sees the success of this game and brings back those as well.

u/QuietlyLosingMyMind 6d ago

I'd buy them too. Nothing like vibing to the soundtrack while doing tricks. 3 had my favorite soundtrack, that's how I found Del the funky homosapien.

Great to see the Switch get price parity with the other current releases.

Next gen pricing is a joke. The game already runs like a dream on PS4 and it's playable on PS5. What exactly is that extra $10 for?

8

u/normhimself 6d ago

Pricing strategy to squeeze a couple bucks out of consumers. They know those who own the ps5 want to use it, and there aren’t that many games out. Might as well upcharge if you have a captive audience.

u/instantwinner 6d ago

I wish there was a better solution for accessing old games that didn't involve piracy, but now that games have been around for a while we're getting to the point where so many classics are basically impossible to access now without pirating them.

62

u/mrbubbamac 6d ago

I don't want to risk sounding like a shill but this was a huge reason I chose Xbox over PlayStation this gen.

I have an enormous catalog of games that now span multiple generations, with many of them enhanced to be even better than they originally were.

If I had the time and energy I'd definitely buy a PS5 as well, I think the controller is super cool and they have tons of cool games. And it was so satisfying last night after seeing the Ninja Gaiden announcement in the Direct to put in my disc of Ninja Gaiden Black and play it at 4k and 60 fps.

They got me pretty locked in solely to have one console that accesses most of my games library.

26

u/BirdhouseInYourS0ul 6d ago

That’s not a shill, just personal preference. I have Xbox, PS4, and Switch (to be fair I finally just got a switch 3 weeks ago and oh man I love it. Was playing Civ 6 in bed last night on handheld and it was a blast), but this is exactly why there is no comparison for me.

The Xbox ecosystem with backwards compat and gamepass makes it a winner. It has the best controller, great UI/Indie games, and they just make it easy with all the cloud stuff and cross console play.

u/HeilYourself 6d ago

Part of the reason PC is my preferred platform. Once games get old enough they won't run on modern operating systems there's almost always a fan patch to get them running again. Alternatively GOG buys up a lot of old IP and gets them running legit.

  • Anthrax & Public Enemy - "Bring the Noise"
  • The High & Mighty - "B-Boy Document '99"

That is outdated. They were able to get the rights for 3 of those songs in the time between that information and the game coming out. Now "B-boy Document 99" and "Out With The Old" are the only songs that haven't been re-licensed.

Direct are glorified ads, you don't want too many big things to steal the spotlight from each other.

There is a reason why Nintendo only ever did 2 "Megatron" Directs: the first was the panic Direct as soon as they realized the WiiU was a massive failure, the other is the Switch Launch event when they needed to sell this brand new concept of gaming.

But yeah it's interesting how Activision basically split the Direct by announcing Crash a few days earlier and THS a few days later.

Also Nintendo proved last year that Twitter announcements out of the blue are pretty effective as well.

Why TF are they charging for Tony Hawk but Crash 4 is a free upgrade?

Edit: So if you have the Digital Deluxe edition, your upgrade is free. So at least I'm not paying for it. But then there's the weird "Custom parks will carry over in Xbox but not PlayStation".

7

u/Canadian_IvasioN 6d ago

I would assume that the PS5 version just automatically has the deluxe content built in, so that would be their justification. The custom parks thing isn't that weird. Multiple companies have said it's just easier for them to go from xb1 to XbSX.

u/Marieisbestsquid 6d ago

They added much more music in this game, the trailer song is one of them. There's a lot of hip hop and rap to go along with the original songs.

u/Locked_Lamorra 6d ago

Prob a good thing, but a nice feature would be the ability to limit it to the old soundtrack only if people wanted that full nostalgia feel.

52

u/Marieisbestsquid 6d ago

You can do that! The game lets you pick exactly which songs are in the playlist at any given time.

And if you want a real full nostalgia feel, since the game by default includes the quality of life moves from other games like Reverts from 3 or Wallplants from Underground, you can also choose to limit your moveset to THPS1 or 2's options.

9

u/Locked_Lamorra 6d ago

Ha, that's awesome. I'll def have to do a couple play throughs and try both options. I do also miss the character creator with either 3 or 4 as well, but maybe that'll come again soon.

u/Marieisbestsquid 6d ago

There is a create-a-skater as well! You'll get various options to base it off of, then unlock clothes that you buy with ingame cash. Of course, options are different from THPS3 and 4, but I've managed to make a couple fun skaters. I do wonder if they'll bring over the Deluxe Edition or the two cosmetic DLCs.

IN-TO-IT is fantastic, I love most of the new songs they've added. I'm super glad your favorite band's in the game; the closest thing for me was hearing Zebrahead in the game after forgetting about them post-"His World" from Sonic 06, and as I'm trying to combo through the mall I hear the rap and get immediately transported back to being a middle school nerd. :)

For those that haven't played the game at all and are just now getting interested since it's coming to the Switch, I'm one of many who played the originals and I can assure you that this game replicates those two games perfect, this doesn't have the floaty feeling that THPS 5 did, everything is grounded and feels genuine. There's still a few very minor bugs to figure out, but you have private lobbies online to skate with friends and they have an insane amount of challenges to keep you busy for quite a while.

Diablo II is so different from III that a lot of people got really upset when it came out back in 2011/2012, iirc. To put it very simply, Diablo II is more of a Role Playing Game, while Diablo III* is more Action: both being ARPGs.

So, in conclusion, you could say Diablo II's complexity is what gets me excited about it!

As someone who bought Diablo III, I also definitely felt like it was meant to be played with multiple people. I hope Diablo II makes me feel like it’s okay to just play alone.

I just want to play alone!!

I like the look of D2 vs 3. 3 is way too candy-colored and it's just a turn off but 2 looks dark and gritty.

I'm extremely nostalgic for d2 BUT overall the story, gameplay, and setting in d2 is unreal. It's just done so well. D3 was pretty fun but it doesn't hold a candle to d2. Hate to say it but I care so much more about the d2 remaster than d4 lol.

Yay for ports , ports and more ports

If Switch is your only way to play games, then it's great news. But it's all just ports that you'd have a better experience playing these games on anything else.

I think it's valid, because Nintendo basically smushed together the Wii and DS in terms of third party content into one. If it's what you have, you can still play a lot of these games. The worst version of these games, but you can still play it. But also: portable!

For such an underpowered system, the Switch really is a triumph.

A reminder that Crash and Spyro took close to a year to port.

I'm still very curious about which "team" is in charge of this, since Vicarious was absorbed by Blizzard, I wonder if this was something the team was under contract to finish, or if this project was shuffled over to another team.

Eitherway, it's the one darn game I want on Switch, so I'll try my best to be patient.

The tweet is saying just “2021” for the Switch release. I assume they’ve been working on the Switch port for a bit already so I’m hoping for a summer or early fall release.

Waiting to play it on the Switch after that data mine has paid off.

Forgetting to buy it for $10 during the last EGS sale is paying off as well.

Hell yes! My first console was an N64 and Tony Hawk played a huge part in my nostalgia for it.

Here’s hoping we get MLB the Show too

I already bought this for xbox. If nintendo thinks I'm gonna buy this again then they're absolutely correct

This is what has pushed me over the edge to finally buy a Switch.

u/mugu007 6d ago

There is always that one game that you are sitting on the edge of your seat for. The last one that had me begging for a release was GRID Autosport last year. Im now on the hype train for Tony Hawk

YOU LITERALLY JUST HAD A DIRECT WHERE YOU COULD HAVE ANNOUNCED THIS INSTEAD OF SHOVELWARE

Omg

u/MBCnerdcore 6d ago

Companies have to pay nintendo to be in the Directs. It's only worth it if you think you need the extra advertising. But if you have something like Blizzcon to announce your game, or you have Mr. Tony Hawk tweeting about it, you probably don't need to be in the Direct - just wait for the Direct and announce a couple days later for free.

If the Neon White people relied on just a tweet to announce things, it wouldn't reach nearly as many people, so being in the Direct is more worth it for them

I'm glad I waited. Super pumped to have handheld THPS.

Still wish it was 1+2+3 though, but I'll totally buy a 3+4 pack if they release it.

This is why I think the Nintendo Switch is one of the best Nintendo consoles to date. The good ole days of being playing Underground 1 & 2 and American Wasteland on GameCube is back.

I played the game on Xbox One not too long ago and I'm willing to play it again on the Switch. Why am I like this?

Fiancé is going to be so happy. We have a switch because of all the coop stuff and she really wanted a ps5 just for THPS. It’s coming together

u/Ketchup1211 6d ago

Perfect game for the switch. Just something to be able to pick up and go with. Looking forward to playing this again on Switch.

It wasn’t just a pipe dream! So excited.

Edit: did not follow the news from earlier! Guess it was only a matter of time.
