Feeling younger in my mind.

When you think of the heyday of Tony Hawk titles, you probably think back to the games prior to weird skateboard controllers and the abysmal Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5. You think back to a time in your childhood when you would turn on your old CRT television, power on the PlayStation, and digitally pull off some sick tricks while Goldfinger's Superman blasted in the background. The first couple of Tony Hawk games hold a special place in a lot of our hearts...

    Code Vein Trailer Reveals the 'Butterfly of Delirium' Boss

    Spoiler warning.

    Another new trailer is out today for the upcoming action-RPG, Code Vein. While I'm sure many of you won't care too much about spoilers, I know some people like going into games like this almost completely blind. It's actually kind of odd that most of the trailers we've seen for the game focus on bosses. You'd think they would want these to be a surprise.

    Anyway, the latest is a trailer for the Butterfly of Delirium. This boss "proves that two heads...
