Count the wipes in this Tony Hawk’s Project 8 video

How well can you nail a trick? If you’re playing a skateboarding game by Tony Hawk, it’s certain that you’re going to master that art. Before you can skate though, you have to learn how to fall.

That’s why we’re inviting you to watch this video and count how many wipes happen during the video. Let it be known that even the best of playtesters can muck up Activision‘s gameplay videos with bad falls and landings. The sheer fun of grabbing air, performing a flip, and landing flawlessly is still one heck of a rewarding accomplishment, especially if this game is your first foray into the world of skateboarding games.

One thing you’ll also notice in this video is the liberal use of the Project 8 version of “bullet time” maneuvers. You’ll get to see a bunch of instances where, in the middle of a trick, the player can slow down time. In this case, using bullet time in mid-air allows you to flip your board to add points to your trick. You gotta love how flashy that feels. Let us know if you manage to do more than three board flips, and keep checking QJ for more on Tony Hawk‘s Project 8 for the Xbox 360 and the PS3.
