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...

    Looks like the embargo for a preview event for The Division was lifted today because we have seen a good deal of new impressions from the Xbox One version of the game. Most notably is a 10 minute long video from Jackfrags that goes into as much detail as allowed about the game, gameplay, and story. The video, seen below, seems to be from the Xbox One version of the game. Near the end he notes that he was not sure of the resolution of that version of the game and that the framerate w...
