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.

    Fallout 76 Hits Steam as Wastelanders Update Releases for Everyone

    A two for one special on Fallout 76 news.

    April 14 not only marks the release date for Fallout 76 on Steam, but it also marks the day in which the Wastelanders update released across all platforms. Those who have been holding off on picking up Fallout 76 because it was exclusive to the Bethesda launcher, because it was a terribly buggy mess for many months, or because of the lack of humans should wait no longer.

    Many of those previous concerns seem to be addressed now?...

    Journey's one year exclusive on EGS finally coming to an end.

    On June 6, 2019, Journey was released for the PC but only on the Epic Games Store (affiliate link). It must have been a one-year timed exclusive, because Annapurna Interactive announced on April 13 that Journey will be coming to Steam.

    Smoothie to be added this Summer.

    Charlotte Smoothie is the 14th daughter and 35th child of the Charlotte family. She will be joining the roster for One Piece: Pirate Warriors 4 this Summer. Bandai Namco tells us that Smoothie is a "statuesque woman who is part of the Longleg Tribe and serves as one of the Three Sweet Commanders of the Big Mom Pirates."
