Skater XL





Skater XL 


I live streamed Skater XL on Twitch recently. This game had sat in the pile for some time. I decided to check out this game. If you missed my live stream you can check out the video section of our website since the content is being turned into a VOD and will be on our website. It will also be appearing on our video sites in the future as long as we have the time and financial resources to do so.

I ran into a couple of major problems while playing Skater XL. The music got part of the live stream muted which means you lose all of my commentary. I will try to remember in the future to turn the music off on games like this one. It is just lame that Easy Day Studios included music that content creators have to deal with in this fashion. Why include copyright content that will mute a live stream? It just makes use mute all the music. Which makes me wonder why include music in the first place.

The controls in Skater XL are extremely difficult and frustrating to use. One stick is used for one foot and the other stick is used for the other foot. That means you must try and perform the tricks doing different things with your feet. Grinding is very difficult in Skater XL. I flopped my character more times than I care to count trying to grind. I am used to skateboarding video games where we latch onto the object to start the grind.

The game play areas are very tiny in Skater XL. There are community created levels that are even smaller. I tried to play with others online and there was nobody playing Skater XL or the servers would not connect anyone. I can see why the community for Skater XL is so small. This game will only appeal to hardcore gamers that want to invest massive amounts of time learning the overly complex controls.

Skater XL looks okay. There are some questionable physics within Skater XL. I also question how certain things worked. I dropped about fifteen feet and would have broken my ankles and most likely the board. Skater XL let me continue as if nothing had happened. There is blood in Skater XL. Expect to fall often with the janky physics of your skater. I wanted to like Skater XL so badly. Unfortunately it is lacking in all areas. I am thankful my dad had enough money to purchase Skater XL on the PS4.
