Tony Hawk 2, Centipede in Beta
9:39 AM | Lucian Fong | Comment on this story

Westlake Interactive has updated their project status page with news that their ports of Tony Hawk Pro Skater 2 and Centipede have entered the beta testing phase. Mark Adams of Westlake estimates that the games will be in this stage for three to four weeks.

Centipede is Hasbro Interactive's 3D re-visiting of the Atari arcade classic. We understand from comments posted by port author Brad Oliver in an emulation-related forum that the game will include an "arcade mode" with the classic 2D version as well, for those with nostaliga pangs for the arcade stand-up version. Expect this title to be "value-priced" when it hits the market.

Tony Hawk 2 is of course the 3D skateboarding game which has appeared on Playstation, PC and Dreamcast so far, and is even coming to Gameboy Advance. For more information on this title be sure to check out our preview and interview with the porting team.

We wanted to settle a developer/publisher controversy that has been brewing for a while now. In our interview with Aspyr Media's Michael Rogers, he was bragging about his Tony Hawk 2 skills and his ability to perform under pressure. Last time we spoke with Mark, he was also pontificating about his "mad skillz." Could there be a rivalry here? Mark sets the record straight while trying to be diplomatic:

I think my "sick" moves match up with him well :) My personal best is
2,250,000 in two minutes, with a single move of 680,000 points. I'm not
sure what the Aspyr guys are hitting for high scores.
Can anyone else sense a Tony Hawk 2 "cage match" at Macworld New York in the making? Developer vs Publisher in a grudge match to the death!
