I don't know how it's happening but for some reason Microsoft seems to be discounting all of the really good video games that I love. Last week it was Dark Souls. This week it's Skate 2.
Skate 2 is currently $6.58 and it is a super great video game. In fact, it might be one of my favourite games ever. I love it so much that I spent the best part 40 minutes talking about it in a podcast devoted solely to that game.
It's an old game, I suppose. But I'm sort of keen to see how it holds up. I suspect it holds up excellently. After the less-good-but-still-quite-cool Skate 3, I'm not sure if we'll ever see this series revitalised. I hope it does get a new entry into the series at some point, but now is as good a time as any to relive one of the best sports games ever.
