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.

    Death Stranding 'The Drop' Trailer

    A new Death Stranding promotional trailer is out.

    There is a new, short promo trailer out today for Death Stranding. Watch as Sam Porter Bridges tries to reconnect a broken nation. Maybe he'll use bridges to do this. Bridges that will help him to transport his deliveries. Maybe he'll eventually get to make portals that help him to bridge together large distances.

    Only the most subtle of symbolism from Hideo Kojima.
