So this is true?

TheviusRacoonus Skate 3 Talking bout Team practice TheviusRacoonus' solution for the Talking bout Team practice Achievement in Skate 3Play in a 6-player Team Freeskate session


If 3 people have the disc version and 3 people are digital and they're attempting to boost for the achievement, they won't be able to get into a lobby altogether?

I wonder if that'll be fixed when Skate 3 becomes backward compatible with the Xbox One?

^ BC doesn't fix, or in any way alter any game or server for a game - BC just means the XO can play the game, it's like having a normal 360 in your XO, no fixes, no differences. They don't fix shit unless it makes them money (or, in exceptional circs, they get nagged to death and show some compassion).

May want to note that the original skate has a ton of unobtainable achievements

It appears to be a very challenging game, which puts a lot of gamers off who have gotten used to all the easy gamerscore. It seems like an alright game to try, especially at that price point. I'm probably going to pick it up.

Saw Deadpool and was bouncing. Saw the price and a bit disappointed. Half expect it to go on sale or be the free game of the month when the film comes out.

You left out inflated-ratio games. People love those! The ratios on the XB Juan have rendered ratio useless for determining how challenging a game is.

spankyNspronkle said:May want to note that the original skate has a ton of unobtainable achievementsI wasn't sure about that. They're marked as partially unobtainable which suggests you can still get them. Can anyone confirm the situation with them?

I can confirm that I got all of the obtainables, and that puts me at 60% for the game. The Skate games are one of the many reasons I don't play EA games. Felt compelled to pass this on, so you don't go through the shite mood that comes with starting a game that you can only 3/5ths of the achievements.

I love how Skate is on sale, yet the multiplayer is long gone... Fucking Microsoft and EA, I tell you.
Grammar Nazi. I do it for the posts.
