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...

  • First Trailer for Dragon's Dogma Online Revealed

    First Trailer for Dragon's Dogma Online Revealed

    Earlier, we saw the first details for Dragon's Dogma Online. Now, we have our first ever trailer for the game.


    Now, despite all of this good news, it's time to bring the buzz down a few levels. This game is apparently never going to be released in the West. That means that North America will probably never get to play it though I do not believe that has been officially announced just yet. Thus, there may still be some hope. Keep those fingers crossed!...

    Report: Resident Evil Revelations 2 Will Not Have Online Co-op
