You can use spotify, although i’m waiting the superior thps3. It was my first game on my import gamecube back in the day. I think i bought it online from some british import specialist online, even got a step down transformer!
Christ, you're not bad at the game. Looking at some of the requirements to get Officer Dick it'll be a wee while before I get near him. Only missing one plushie for the alien character but I can't get into the strawberry floating volcano to get it.
They're not too hard to find(green alien plush dolls) but I think one of them requires you to get into the volcano in Skater Heaven and I can't get the required speed up to boneless into the damn thing, it's infuriating.
There is also a piece of special graffiti and the Vicarious Visions logo to find in each level. Again, I think my problem for both of them will be getting into Skate Heaven's volcano because that's definitely where they are.
I apparently have two of the graffiti things but I only know about them because I had a look at the secret challenges in the list after I finished all the level goals. There's a crazy amount of content!
It would be legit incredible to unlock him and Wolverine like you could in the old game. There are a few references to him in the board designs and stuff but I haven't see anything yet sadly. Just the alien and Officer Dick.
I really can't get over the sheer level of content in this game though. It's mental just how much there is to do, to unlock and to find within the levels. This is how a remake is done, son.
Finally unlocked the alien, and got all the gaps in THPS1. There are something like double the amount in THPS2 but I've made a good start already and finished the Hangar so I'll keep working on that over the next week or so.
I've been flitting between my CAS and Lizzie Armanto, but I'll be spending a bit of time going through all the skater challenges and stuff this week with the idea of getting to level 100. Think I'm at 52 currently, and suspect it'll be a bit of a slog by the end. Think I've completed 120/714 challenges so far.
Spunky, I think you’ll love this. Hope it gets a run out on Switch shortly.

This volcano can sod off though!
Edit - Boneless seems key! Did it first time that time. Been stuck on it for ages.
Yeah, once I learned to Boneless properly I managed to get in really quickly! Also, I may have, err, used a created track online to get a 10,000,000 score very early on. It had the effect of boosting me up about ten levels at the start. Also, the gap collections on THPS are worth *loads* of experience points so worth getting out of the way. I’ve done 13/19 so far.
