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...

  • Ken Revealed for Street Fighter V, Fans Shocked and Outraged

    Ken Revealed for Street Fighter V, Fans Shocked and Outraged

    Look everyone, it's Street Fighter's Ken! Here he is as he appears in Street Fighter V. Surprised that Ken is in a new Street Fighter game? Yeah, neither is anybody else. What is shocking is that he now looks drastically different than what everyone is used to. Apparently, not too many people are completely sold on the new look for the old favorite.

    Ken now supposedly has a more "in-your-face" fighting style. I'm guessing this is Capcom's attempt to make him play (and looks)...

    John Smedley is Going After Convicted Lizard Squad Member

    John Smedley, the former CEO of Sony Online Entertainment and current CEO of Daybreak, has a small bone to pick with Julius "zeekill" Kivimaki. Kivimaki was found guilty of over 50,000 charges the other day, all of which amounted to a couple of years probation in the Finnish courts.

  • Teen Accused of Disrupting Xbox Live and PSN Last Christmas Gets Off With a Slap on the Wrist

    17-year-old Julius "zeekill" Kivimaki was found guilty of 50,700 charges that were brought against him. Kivimaki claims to have been part of the Lizard Squad group that claimed responsibility for bringing down Xbox Live and PlayStation Network this past Christmas. You would think that someone found guilty of over 50 thousand charges would come with a rather severe punishment, right? Not so if you live in Finland. The courts gave Kivimaki a two-year suspended sentence. That's essentiall...
