    The controls are completely different from Tony Hawk. All Tony Hawk games are button mashers. With skate., to do tricks, you flick the sticks. It's pretty cool. Plus you can make videos of yourself and upload it online and send links to people. Pretty sweet shit. I say all this, and I've only played it all of 5 minutes. Baron can tell you more baout the gameplay than I can.

    skate. is a near perfect skating game. It's not about 8 million point combos and doing 900 Superman Impossible Bonelesses over a dinosaur on Pluto. It's about doing what real pros do. Granted, it's a lot easier than getting on a board and going crazy.

    Here's the perfect comparison:

    Tony Hawk : NFL Street
    skate. : Madden

    Tony Hawk is about grinding on telephone wires and insane combos. skate. is more about doing a couple tricks, maybe some spins, and playing realistically. You can only grind as far as you have momentum.

    The right thumbstick is pretty much your rear foot. You pull back slightly, you manual. You pull back all the way, you'll crouch... flick it up and you'll ollie. Push it up then flick down, you'll nollie. Pull down and push up to the right, you'll kickflip.

    Never played TF 2 personally, hear its pretty awesome though. Too bad Counter Strike source is not coming to 360, thats a classic.

    Yeah!. I would also like a remake of Half Life 1 on the 360, that would be cool, using the SOURCE engine. I heard one was coming out for PC

    No thats not it. Half Life source wasnt running on the Source engine, it was just optimized with it. To be honest its crud because its no different to the original. The one thats on the actual source engine is called Black Mesa source, but its not out yet AFAIK

    It's a mod. So it's free for everyone who has HL2. Here are some screenshots and info, it looks indeed amazing:
