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

3:30 PM on 07.20.2012 // mrandydixon
  @mrandydixon

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 have fond memories of playing the original back in college with my buddies, and would have loved an opportunity to recapture that feeling once again.

So can this latest game -- Tony Hawk Pro Skater HD -- recapture the glory days of the most X-treme of the X-treme sports? Unfortunately, it's looking like "no."

Still, that hasn't stopped a few of you from expressing interest in playing tonight, so get after it! If mediocre skating games aren't your thing, you could always join King Foom for a bit of Worms: Reloaded mayhem! And if neither of those pique your interest... well, just take a look below and see what else we're playing!

Friday Night Fights

New to FNF? Read this! Each week, a bunch of us Dtoiders get together to play videogames online! It's a 100% community-run event, so feel free to join in or even host something yourself!

The planning for FNF starts in the forums, where community members volunteer to host matches and post their pertinent details (game, time, Gamertag, etc.). Then, every Friday, reminder posts go up in the community blogs followed by a recap post here on the front page.

To join in, simply send a friend request to the match host! If you'd rather host something yourself, sound off in the comments section below!

Went into Gamestop on my workbreak to kill a bit of time today. SMT:Devil Survivor 2 RB for €30 and Pillars of Eternity for €5 more.. As if my RPG coma couldn't get any deeper. With Numenera and the 3ds release schedule, what a great time to be an RPG

I'm still trying to understand the logic behind calling Shiren Mystery Dungeon a spinoff and linking to Pokémon Mystery Dungeon as an example of mainline.

I didn't make this, nor do I know the person who did, but this Shovel Knight remix is too good not to share around. It's of my favorite track on the OST. Those surprise vocals at the end, tho!

The ultimate waifu has been decided scientifically. There is no need to participate in the waifu wars any longer. (I won't tell you who it is until I make my own post of course)
