EA Kills Off Origin

Review: Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 + 2

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...

The first trailer for Call of Duty Black Ops: Cold War was blocked in China and then later edited from every other region because it contained roughly one second of footage from the Tiananmen Square protests from 1989. This is when the Chinese government had a big uh "crackdown" on pro-democracy protesters. That is to say, they murdered the fuck out of their citizens, or made them "disappear," and attacked them with...

    Two premium editions for those of you with money to burn.

    The grim city builder to hit consoles this Fall.

    11 bit studios just announced that their city building title, Frostpunk, is headed to the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on October 11. This isn't your typical city building title though.

    DayZ Getting Global Edit Because of Australia

    Bohemia wants to have just one version of the game.

    This past week, the zombie survival game DayZ was banned in Australia both at retail stores and then later from digital stores. The game was refused classification because it would "depict, express or otherwise deal with matters of sex, drug misuse or addiction, crime, cruelty, violence or revolting or abhorrent phenomena in such a way that they offend against the standards of morality, decency, and propriety."

    But only for first-party titles from Valve.

    You may have already seen that news going around that items on the Steam Workshop must now be approved by Valve before they will appear for the public. This seems to include anything that you may typically find on the Steam Workshop, including custom maps, models, skins, sounds, and the like.

    New 'Experimental' Splinter Cell Game Confirmed by Ubisoft CEO

    Open World? GAAS? Mobile? VR?

    The emotional rollercoaster that fans of the Splinter Cell series has been on for the past few years has been never ending, has had no chill, and frankly, it's gotten to be a wee bit tiresome. In May of this year, a new Splinter Cell was apparently "confirmed" and then it was later revealed to just be a joke.

    Tim Willits Joins Saber Interactive

    Former id Software director joins World War Z studio.

    Just last month, Tim Willits announced that he was parting ways with id Software after the end of QuakeCon. Well, QuakeCon has come and gone, and sure enough Tim Willits departed the studio just as he said he would. It wasn't yet clear where he would end up. All we knew at the time is that he was going to stay active in the industry.

    Today, the mystery was lifted as it was announced that Willits is joining Saber Interactive...
