Game Brain spoke with him about his work on the series, the disastrous release of Tony Hawk Ride, Shred and Pro Skater 5 as well as what he thinks about the rival Skate series.

10 minutes of fire. Not a single pause. Dude is outrageous.
“I used to have 17 sugars in a cup of tea. If I had 18 it was too sweet for me.”
But don’t get me wrong, Metal Gear Solid is a massive pile of wank as well, and Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is probably the most polished game I’ve ever played.
Does this interpreting non-music into music genre have a name?
I’ll still play this when it, maybe, perhaps, eventually drops on Xbone.
This seems worryingly prescient.

How many games shown at E3 featured humans fighting giants, or giant beasts, or zombies? I’ll admit the games look well executed, but can we get some new concepts? God damn.
Over the last few days I’ve actually convinced myself that Steep from Ubisoft might be a game I could really get into. The intro/reveal felt stiff (can scripted game intros get any worse?) but the idea of it has grown on me. I described it to a friend as Skate but on a mountain range – which seems like a phrase the PR people should have used to sell it.
Increasingly I’m looking for fun gameplay experiences that don’t demand solid 2-3 hour blocks of my time (sorry, Metal Gear Solid V, I love you so much but I’m also a husband and dad). Ori and the Blind Forest filled that spot really well for me – a game that is as rewarding in 20 minute blocks as it is in 2 hours of play.
Steep genuinely looks like something I can add into my unwind-at-home routine really easily: an open world mountain I can ride pretty much endlessly, while finding new lines and spots.

NBA 2K just dropped their #WINNING (why not #TIGERBLOOD?) trailer. It’s interesting. Some stuff looks genuinely great, and other stuff looks, well, weird. Here’s a few GIFs calling out some points of interest:
An epic telling (serious how epic is this clip) of how the Curiosity Rover will land on Mars. This is happening August 6th, people. Mark it down.
