Highlights from Sonic Generations of Skate

Sonic Generations of Skate

It was a foggy day in Venice Beach, CA on Saturday, but that didn’t stop 12 skateboarding pros from rocking it on the half pipe to compete for the winner’s title.

Some of the best skaters, including Sergie Ventura, Sandro Dias, Mitchie Brusco, and Tony Hawk, competed in a team-based challenge for the win. There were 4 teams, each consisting of 3 skaters — one from each “generation”. Skaters competed in different challenges, including high air,  best trick, individual run, and team doubles. There was some impressive skating all around, including Sandro Dias landing a 900 – the first time he’s ever done so.

The full competition will be shown on Fox Sports Network on November 25th, but here’s a taste of what went down.

Here are some images from the day, and you can see more on our Flickr.

Shinobi 3DS Digital Comic Reveal

Shinobi 3DS Logo

This week we have a special reveal of something I am very excited about – a digital comic that serves as a mini-prequel to the story of Shinobi 3DS. You might have caught some of the art amongst our updates, such as the Comic-con poster we printed on site. The art is from Griptonite lead designer Kris Durrschmidt and is fantastic, highly detailed, and a true fit for the Shinobi franchise. We think you’ll agree.

Facebook Comic Reveal

We’re starting with the first three panels today and will be rolling out the rest across Facebook until Thursday. Click page 1 below to be whisked away to the Facebook page with panels 2 and 3! Check back each day for an update, we’ll have updates each day until Thursday!

Name That Game Winners Announced!

Daytona USA

Did you name that game correctly? I know we had tons of submissions – quite possibly if we printed each individual submission and put them on a scale, it could be be an actually ton! But we’re into saving trees and all that good stuff, so we’ll just assume it was a lot no matter how you judge them. Speaking of judging, we can only have so many winners, all of which are listed below – congratulations!
