Hands-on: EA’s Skate-It (DS and Wii)

By  • 

Wii Version

One of the most amazing third-party Wii games at E3 was EA’s Skate It.  The game carries a lot in common with last year’s Skate for the 360 and PS3.  The storyline revolves around a disaster that happens in the city from the first Skate.  The entire city is now in ruins and your character gets to skate wherever they want.  EA really wanted to emphasize an open environment where the players could skate virtually anywhere and anyway they want to.

The demo of the game consisted of one basic area in the heart of the ruined city.  All the main elements for a skating game were there: gaps, jumps, verts, fun boxes, rails, and all sorts of skatable rubble.  First, I got to try the game using just the Wii Remote.  Every move and button can be mapped to only the Wii remote, and it basically controls just like a skateboard.  To turn left, tilt the Wiimote left.  To ollie, flick the Wii remote up.  It’s very intuitive and easy to get used to grinding and performing tricks to string together multiple lines.  The game’s scoring system is based on how many tricks you can do within a given ‘line’.  There are all sorts of combo multipliers and linking varied tricks can lead to a lot of points.

NGamer Supposedly ‘Confirms’ New 1st Party Wii Games

By  • 

Ok, everyone on the Internet is buzzing with this news that NGamer has supposedly “confirmed” both Animal Crossing Wii and one other Nintendo franchise for release this year.  It’s getting very close to E3 and I don’t want to spoil any surprises, so if you don’t want to read ahead to see the other 1st party game DON’T…You’ll be glad you waited.

I’m even frustrated I saw the news because I want to be surprised at Nintendo’s E3 press conference, but apparently people just want to reveal everything they can no matter what Nintendo has planned for E3. *sigh*  Anyways, check out the news after the jump if you want to see it..

I don’t think this news is the ‘BIG’ news that Nintendo will announce at E3 (I think there’s something even bigger than this), but it’s still news that could take some wind out of Nintendo’s sails next Tuesday.
