Tony Hawk

Remember when Tony Hawk’s catering guy screwed up and accidentally announced a new Tony Hawk game on Instagram? Unsurprisingly, the game’s been officially confirmed by Tony Hawk himself now via Instagram. The post...
It's no secret that I'm a Tony Hawk guy. I'd enjoyed nearly every entry in the series outside of the boring Proving Ground and the iffy Ride subseries, and that rumor of a new fully-fledged game has me all hot ...
46-year old skateboardman Anthony Frank Hawk tweeted this today: "I'm currently working with Activision on a console game for 2015 (along with a new mobile game). I think fans of THPS series will be hyped." I've looked at tha...
YouTuber and speedrunner GeorgeThePlushie has set a new record for Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2 -- an any percent speedrun of three minutes and 26 seconds. How does he do it? By navigating the menus faster than most humans ...


Tony Hawk is back, but not in the way you might be hoping for. TouchArcade went in-depth with the latest skateboarding game to bear Hawk's name, and it's a free-to-play iOS game called Tony Hawk's Shred Session, available th...
Before Neversoft kicked off its tremendously successful Tony Hawk series, the studio worked on a PlayStation game called Apocalypse which had Bruce Willis spouting off lines like "Strap one on, it's time to Jam!" (And, befor...
Good evening, teens! Here’s today’s DTOID News update, which I’m turning into a weekly show so we can make more interesting things happen. Do you have Playstation Plus? Because depending on where you live, y...
Tony Hawk appeared on Bloomberg TV to talk about his new skateboarding game. Surprise: It's just for mobile! The new title is expected to release this year, and will be the first time a Tony Hawk specific game has appeared on...
Apart from the 2012 HD remake, it's been a while since we've seen a new Tony Hawk's Pro Skater game. You'd have to go back to 2010's poorly received Shred to find a fresh title in the series. That appears set t...
You might know the development team Arcane Kids from their Jet Grind Radio-esque indie title Zineth. If you don't, I recommend you go get acquainted with the game, as it is superb. At any rate, their next title, Perfect Stri...
Gamers are a diverse breed. From PC aficionados and console fanatics, to retro devotees and casual admirers, there is no one-size-fits-all model of videogame hobbyist. Though we possess many differences, like game preferences...
I thought I was a Tony Hawk pro after beating every game in the series last year, but I got nothin' on this guy, who beats Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3 in three minutes and 55 seconds! The way he does it is by completing multipl...
The Tony Hawk series has had a bumpy ride lately. Although I noted my small affinity towards Shred in my Quest to beat every Tony Hawk game ever this year, it was too little too late: Activision had lost most of its market an...
Well, folks, I'm continuing on my journey to be one of the only people in the gaming industry to cover Tony Hawk HD -- I hope you're enjoying the ride! In recent news, it seems as if Robomodo has patched the 360 version of th...
I feel like I'm the only person in the entire game blogosphere that cares about the upcoming Tony Hawk's Pro Skater HD DLC. There hasn't really been any coverage so far on it, and after literally months of pestering Robomodo ...
The Xbox 360 version of Tony Hawk Pro Skater HD released roughly two months ago as part of the Summer of Arcade promotion and everybody else who wanted a crack at it on another platform has been waiting since. Today, tha...
You'd think that after my Tony Hawk Quest that I'd be sick of The Birdman and his games by now. Nope! I'm still waiting on the release of Tony Hawk Pro Skater HD's DLC, which is reportedly a few weeks away from rel...
[Read on for a description of every main series Tony Hawk game ever released in the US, and my completion of them all in 2012.] So far, I've had two "Carter's Quests," so I figured I would explain myself a bit in regards to m...
If you've ever seen Indie Game: The Movie, you'll have some idea of how it feels to fully develop a game, release it, then pray that it sells. It looks like Robomodo's prayers were answered to the tune of 120,...
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...
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 ...
The big news today is the newly announced voice cast for Sleeping Dogs, which includes Lucy Liu, Tim Wilkinson, Robin Shou, and oddly enough, Emma Stone. A video walkthrough of the E3 demo of Metro: Last Light is now online,...
Tony Hawk's Pro Skater HD may be making its debut next week during Microsoft's Summer of Arcade, but there's good news for those of you looking to nostalgically grind on your PCs. Activision has confirmed that the HD collec...
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 ...
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...
I'm pretty pumped for the upcoming release of Tony Hawk's Pro Skater HD. Today, Activision has given me even more to look forward to by confirming that the first round of downloadable content for the game will include stages ...
Legendary skateboarder Tony Hawk was hanging out in San Francisco this week for the Game Developers Conference showing off Tony Hawk HD. Our tall freak of nature Max Scoville got a chance to talk with the man hims...
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 elimi...
Tony Hawk's Pro Skater recalls a very specific time in my life, a period of freedom and uncertainty as I was just entering the world. I was in my first apartment in a crappy part of town, working a full-time job, a part-...
Happy Monday, Destructoid! In the event that you were too busy huffing ether to pay attention to the Spike TV VGA's this weekend, Max and I have managed to condense the only important parts (i.e., the trailers) into a simple...
Tony Hawk Pro Skater HD was revealed at this weekend's Spike VGA show. Tony Hawk himself said that this game combines the best parts of the first two THPS titles and bumps them up to HD. Today, Activision sends along more de...
That's so funny. Just the other day I was saying that Tony Hawk was best with the first two titles. The teased Tony Hawk game was revealed in a red carpet segment during the Spike VGA preshow. It is called Tony Hawk Pro Skat...
I'm betting a new Tony Hawk game will be announced at Saturday's Spike Video Game Awards show. The skateboarder dropped a hint on his Twitter feed: I'll be announcing the upcoming release of something new on Sat; the same da...
Imagine a world where people had to get around using only their feet, a world where conventional modes of transportation like skateboards didn't exist. This Tony Hawk Freerunning video gives us a glimpse into what that dark ...
Nelson Abalos over at Pixelated Geek had a chance to interview Tony Hawk, at LEGOLAND of all places, and the skateboard legend mentioned that he's working on a new game "probably for next year." News that will be received by ...
Despite the fact that Tony Hawk Shred had an absolutely pitiful sales performance, evil publisher Activision is still standing behind the increasingly obsolete skater. He is a skater, right? It's so easy to forget. Who are we...
Tony Hawk and Shaun White frown as Electronic Arts' John Riccitiello talks. The CEO has told Kotaku that he feels the skateboarding game phenomenon may have "run its course as the representative example" in the broader "actio...
Proof that even Activision can milk a franchise too much has come with news that Tony Hawk: Shred sold an utterly pathetic 3,000 copies during its first week in the United States. Earnings itself the dubious honor of October'...
Activision has announced that Tony Hawk: SHRED for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and Wii will be out October 26. The game, which uses the board peripheral released with last year's Tony Hawk: RIDE, will feature both skateboarding ...
Finally, we get a look at what Tony Hawk: Shred is going to loo like. With Ubisoft's snowboarding franchise head, Shaun White, heading into skateboarding it only makes sense that Activision's skateboarding king, Tony Hawk, wo...
