Skatebird review

The draw of Skatebird is summarised early on. “Remember when I told you about human skaters?” says one bird to another. “They can only Ollie once. You’re a bird. You can fly.” True enough, triggering a second ollie while airborne tugs you upwards, amid a flurry of feathers. If you wish to spin, your customised bird will lunge downward, as if pecking at a worm, and whirl without a care, board in beak. The question is, Why? What tethers these creatures not quite to the earth but to the limbo just above it, borne along on wheels of thundering polyurethane?

SkateBIRD review

A skateboarding game with birds doesn’t seem like the sanest of choices. Perhaps it only found its feet after someone at Glass Bottom Games thought about the name Tony Hawk, and changed it to tiny hawk, thus setting this weird premise in motion. There’s a wide open market for skateboarding titles, especially ones that are easy to pick up and play. One that I never foresaw, was one featuring cardinals, owls, and kingfishers grinding on straws and pizza boxes whilst collecting blowtorches and duck tape. SkateBIRD is ridiculous, but in a stupidly fun and self-aware way.

Spectre Aims to Be the Splinter Cell Game That Ubisoft Won't Make

Spectre developers Jordan Crawford and Fred Toms first met while working at a restaurant together in their teenage years. They bonded quickly over video games – and one game in particular: Splinter Cell. The duo would make Splinter Cell jokes to other employees and introduce themselves to restaurant guests as ‘Sam Fisher’.” After decades as friends and a COVID-induced separation, the two veteran developers, who have each worked in the industry separately, decided to form Symbiosis Games together, “a nod to our symbiotic relationship,” Toms said. “Jordan is a very artistic and visual person, while I am absolutely the opposite of that.”
