    I never really gave it a chance but this guy covered most of what I imagine I would say

    I have my fair share of disagreements with his approach to the world at times but this we would likely say much the same for.

    A music publisher saying a dev can no longer sell a game they pressed already would be shitty, in this brave new world of digital games then I can see each copy sold being a new instance and thus time limited contracts become a thing.
    That said I imagine music peeps got caught out by the massive rise of games, and they certainly saw skateboarding fly under the radar for years (watch basically any 90s/early 2000s video, even the big boys and power players in the industry, and wonder how they licensed the music there. Shortcut if you don't fancy watching them http://www.skatevideosite.com/index.php?page=skatevideos&sort=year&p=28 ).

    What bothers me more is when franchises (not necessarily of games) get sold and old games in them get delisted and such. I understand it is the nature of contract law and licensing agreements, and would be more than happy for the money to go to the newer owners and such. Equally when sports games get such things then you also get something similar (and then EA makes their sports games I generally find quite peh).

    So, I bought it.. No multiplayer.. Inconsistent controls.. Bugs galore.. Instant refund. I'm glad they're getting rid of it. Not even worth $2.

    Yes!
    All true, except they didn't polish it, they built it on a garbage engine that basically ruined the feel of the original games. It wouldn't have been so bad, except that "feel" is what made the series so fun to begin with. Similar to how the XBLA Turtles in Time was total garbage :(

    It was a garbage remake anyway. It uses the Unreal Engine instead of the original engine which is practically perfect. Get a PS2 emulator and play THPS3 and THPS4 with the graphics upscaled. The best version of THPS2 is the Dreamcast one.

    Any THPS game is, the fifth one is abortive garbage.

    Was I the only one who played the GBA Tony hawk downhill jam? That is the absolute worst. :wtf:
    It look like star fox if it was on SNES but no where near as fun.

    Lol that looks pretty bad, GBA wasn't meant to render 3D.

    Well Donkey Kong Country still look good on GBA. :)
    But this game was a waste of money, I never tried any other version of downhill jam, but I bought that one cause I owned GBA and thought a tony Hawk Racing game would be fun. :(

    Yes, but the washed out colors and horrible audio quality, I don't like any Snes to GBA port at all.

    No one does, I'm the only one. Colors, looks and audio aside, the games do offer something more. Back then we was playin our favorite game on the go anywhere. (Let's just hope nintendo switch VC is coming soon... and maybe have Gamecube..... tony hawk) :ninja:
