Tony Hawk HD hits the over 100k mark in its first week

Only in its first week of sales up to this point, Tony Hawk's Pro Skater HD has already sold a total of 120,000 downloads. Apparently, its day-to-day sales have also managed to stay consistent since last Wednesday. It's worth...

Friday Night Fights: Tony Hawk can't catch a break

Tuesday marked the release of the first Tony Hawk game since the critically panned Shred. (Shred itself being the followup to the equally panned Ride.) While I've never been a huge fan of the skateboarding genre myself, I do ...

Tony Hawk's Pro Skater HD is making its way to PC

Tony Hawk's Pro Skater HD feels like classic Tony Hawk
by Steven Hansen

Tony Hawk's Pro Skater and Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2 were the bomb. Hard to believe the former only came out in 1999. Unfortunately, the series quickly spiraled away from being the bomb and, in more recent years, toward being a laughing stock that Activision has been so sure people are going to eventually buy en masse after realizing the error of their ways.

Fortunately for us, Activision seems to have realized that this strategy is not working (also not working: making bad games and expecting them to sell well, especially against Skate). Accordingly, we’re getting Tony Hawk's Pro Skater HD in about a week's time as a $15 downloadable amalgam of the first two games in the franchise.

E3: Watch me embarrass myself at Tony Hawk HD

You want to see something really depressing and sad? Here's a video we shot on the E3 show floor where I played Tony Hawk HD at the Summer of Arcade portion of Microsoft's booth. Okay, that word, "played," is beyond gen...

Preview: 5 things to know about Tony Hawk's Pro Skater HD
by Wesley Ruscher

The original Tony Hawk's Pro Skater holds a special place in my gaming heart, as it does in Conrad's. I was fresh out of high school without a lot of money, and the addictive nature of trying to complete the perfect run eliminated the need for any other game. It was the perfect fix for when I was happy, sad, or just plain bored, and it only got better with the second installment -- especially the Dreamcast version.

Unfortunately, the freshness that made the series so iconic began to wear thin with yearly updates that saw little innovation. There hasn't been much to like for fans of the early games, but I received a sneak peek at a very early build of Tony Hawk's Pro Skater HD, and it may be safe to say that the Birdman is finally back.
