EA Kills Off Origin

Origin to be replaced by more generic naming convention.

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...

  • Week in Review: Layers of Fear: Inheritance and ABZU (July 31-August 6, 2016)

    It's been one hell of a week both in terms of games played and just due to life in general. It really hit its stride when my computer decided to download the Windows 10 'Anniversary Update' (AU), the latest and greatest update to what has largely been a very nice operating system. Sadly, the update completely broke my computer in that it would freeze up roughly 30 seconds after logging in. Clicks didn't work, the Task Manager didn't work, CTRL+ALT+DEL didn't work. Nothing worked. It seems like I...
