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.

  • Free Multiplayer Maps Coming for The Last of Us Remastered

    Free Multiplayer Maps Coming for The Last of Us Remastered

    Naughty Dog revealed earlier today that the upcoming multiplayer maps for The Last of Us Remastered will be free to all owners of the game. This is a bit of a difference from even just a few days ago when it was believed that the maps would have a fee associated with them upon release. So, why the change of heart?

    Believe me, the entire team at Naughty Dog

    The Behemoth is Working on a New Game with a Giant Bear

    The Behemoth, known most recently for Battleblock Theater, just released a teaser trailer for their fourth game. It includes a giant bear that ruined a lot.

    Shortly before the release of BattleBlock Theater we started working on something new. We schemed up a bunch of concepts and picked our strongest one.

    Resident Evil: Revelations 2 Leaked by Xbox

    For a brief period, Xbox.com had the box art and a screenshot up for the completely unannounced Resident Evil: Revelations 2 or Biohazard: Revelations 2. Microsoft has since removed the art and screen but as this is the Internet, people managed to snag them before they were gone for good.
