Nah, you can get through all the levels without 100% goals. IIRC 100% gets you an unlocked special skater though.

I had this game on the GameCube and loved it. I had never played THPS 1 or 2, so my first exposure was with this game. It's also been my only experience with the series.

I was a high school teacher for kids with emotional and behavioral disorders when I got this game. At first when I talked about owning a GameCube with my students they gave me all kinds of crap for owning the Nintendo lunchbox system. Then one day I brought in the system with this game and NBA Street and hooked it up during the kids lunch period. They loved it and my classroom quickly became the hot spot for lunch, after school and sometimes even before school. I loved pulling off the tricks, the soundtrack, the wipe outs, and enjoyed sharing the fun.

Not sure I'll play this month as I don't have a copy anymore. But you guys have fun for me!

Great show guys! I didn't play along but I really enjoyed the podcast. It seemed the guests were perfect for this particular episode given their fondness for the game and their experience with skating (even P1's - hilarious!) I was a big skater back in the day and really enjoyed playing Skate or Die on the NES. I also watched those VHS tapes of the Bones Bragade and others like it and wanted to be a pro skater! Here are a few action shots I found of me skating in the 90's:

Nice shots Duke!

The only pic I have of me skating is this ghostly night time nollie over a snowball from back in my uni days.

Loved the podcast!

Man that was a great episode. Just finished listening. You guys brought back all the memories I had of this game. I might need to hunt down another copy of it soon. And it was really nice to hear Enzzy since it's been a minute since the last LOB podcast.
