It is!

Other games will be talked about in here too, like Tony Hawk on the Game Boy & 720 on the Atari Lynx.

Yep, that one too. I used to own it on the NES.

Wait, you never played the sequel? It had a great Half Pipe. You could actually decapitate the skater with it.

No, I never played the sequel or Ski Or Die.

Skate Or Die 2 might not have come out in PAL regions.

I played so much Skate or Die back in the day, I will still sometimes randomly get its soundtrack stuck in my head.

The Oral History of Tony Hawk's Pro Skater

Are there plans for more games in the series?
Not from Activision. I’m potentially working on something but it’s so early I couldn’t talk about it. I don’t have any contracts signed but it’s exciting. I feel like it’s with the right people so I should know more in the next couple months.

Only skateboarding game I ever played was Tony Hawk 2. It was a decent game, although I cared nothing about skateboarding!

I've played lots of skateboarding games.. Tony hawk's pro skater and Tony hawk's pro skater 2. That is enough.
I tried to play THPS 3 for 5 minutes, but it wasn't THPS 2 so I stopped.
The English language had deteriorated into a hybrid of hillbilly, valleygirl, inner-city slang and various grunts. Joe was able to understand them, but when he spoke in an ordinary voice he sounded pompous and faggy to them.

Skate 3 Servers Turned Back On, Skate 4 Speculation Ensues

In one of the weirder developments of the month, the servers for Skate 3 have been reactivated without comment and acknowledgement by EA, allowing returning players to play on user-generated maps and other deactivated features in the game.

The sudden reactivation of the game’s servers and its close proximity to the upcoming E3 has led many fans to speculate a long awaited Skate 4 announcement, something fans have been clamouring for with rising volume over the years.

Since Skate 3’s release all the way back in 2010, the series has been relatively dormant. Various fan campaigns have cropped up to try and rouse EA into developing a fourth entry in the series for the eighth generation of consoles. In early 2016, fans flooded EA’s social media pages with the caption “Skate 4” with even EA employees tweeting out the caption, further adding fuel to the fire. In September 2016, the skate-park known as The Berrics launched a campaign to get EA to develop a Skate 4, using the slogan “Make EA Skate Again”.

With the original Skate being released early in the seventh generation of consoles, it took the space left behind by the long declining Tony Hawk series. Since its now over eight year absence, there hasn’t been anything new to fill the skating gap in the industry (yes, I am trying to scrub Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5 from my memory), a new game in the Skate series would be a welcome announcement at EA’s conference this E3…..or it could just be a remaster announcement. Fingers crossed for the former.
