Wakeboarding video game
 
Why isn't there a wakeboarding video game out there? A game where you could wakeboard, wakeskate, surf, drive the boat and all of it being realistic. Like the game skate.

I know people are going to say there was a wake game... I want a realistic one.

Come on EA!

What ? Shaun Murray's Wake boarding unleashed Brah! Whats unrealistic about some toe side tantrums, 1-1-6, sliding rollercoarster rails, or a hover-wakeboard?

I love that game, in fact I was just playing it last month!

I have Van Halen's "Change" on my boat playlist because of this game--and because it is a bada** song to rock-out to.

That game was epic. Just time for something new. Maybe a king of wake series game.

That game was cool, but unfortunately probably only appealed to wakeboarders. I didn't/don't own it and only played the demo version that was included on THPS4 my roommate had. Would be real interesting to know how many copies sold. Maybe Murray knows and would reply?

I think a new game would be a little more popular. Not saying wakeboarding unleashed wasn't, I just don't remember if it was really marketed that hard. I think with cable parks becoming more popular you would have a wider audience.

I am a big gamer and followed this game closely when it was being developed. It uses the Tony Hawk's Skateboarding engine, which allowed them to speed up the development. That is why there is such a focus on the rail riding in the game. I remember reading an article in Wakeboarding Mag, about Shaun and the game, the thing that stuck with me the most, was a comment Shaun made about the music. Saying that he was glad he decided to go with the classic rock sound track to make the game more timeless.

Byerly had a Xbox only game being developed. It was abandoned due to the lack of Shaun's game being sold.

I wonder if a wakeboarding game would be harder to make vs a skateboarding/snowboarding game? Would it be a cable game, boat game, or both? To do it right they would have to take in account line tension, rope length, speed, pull point height... etc ON TOP of the typical game physics. I bet it would be a blast to play but a nightmare to make.

suit226 03-20-2014 5:42 PM

I bet they could do it. I mean look at all these crazy games being made today. It would have to be both cable and boat I think. But I just think it would be a cool of season hobby. Haha

All they seem to make now are shoot em up games. I have a ps4 that is basically only used for Netflix and redbox instant lol. I'm tired of shooting people, how about some action sport games, mx, snowboarding, wake boarding. Anything other than damn call of duty

I use mine the same way, other than playing my brother in hockey ... That goes back to 1994.. Ha

Let's be honest here…. Wakeboarding in Wii Resort is legit.
