Review: Tony Hawk's Skate Jam

I've played every Tony Hawk game to date. Yep, even the ones with the physical skateboard (one was okay). Beyond my love of the sport, I always approached Tony Hawk joints as puzzle games. Figuring out where all the devilishly hid...

Tony Hawk's back with a new free-to-play mobile game

Tony Hawk might not work with Activision anymore, but that doesn't mean he's done lending his likeness to video games. Three years after the dismal THPS5, the Hawk squawks again. Next week, Tony Hawk's Skate Jam will release on iOS and...

Pairing Simpsons episodes with video games

The Simpsons has been on our screens for coming up to 30 years, becoming a cornerstone in comedy timing and how to make quality animated entertainment content. And it's true that there are divides in the fandom: When did the show stop being...

The real-life places that games made me want to visit

TV programmes, films, books and games give us the opportunity to explore distant worlds without even having to leave the comfort of our own bedrooms; they also allow us to see representations of countries and towns that we wouldn't be able ...

CNBC asked Tony Hawk about esports for some reason

Eighteen years ago, Tony Hawk landed the first-ever 900 on a skateboard. The two-and-a-half aerial rotations ascended Hawk far past the vertical walls of a half-pipe. From that moment onward, Hawk was no longer a hero whose name was whisper...

Tony Hawk Pro Skater HD is being removed from Steam

Tony Hawk's Pro Skater HD is a pretty bad homage to the classic PlayStation Neversoft series. It combined the original Pro Skater with its sequel and eventually got some maps from Pro Skater 3 as downloadable content. Honestly, this is...

Ranking the best Star Wars games that I've played

May the fourth be with you! Ha-ha, just a little joke on today, May the 4th -- Star Wars day, to the uninitiated. It's perhaps our most American holiday: no day off from work and in tribute to consumption of a multi-billion dollar entertain...

The UK has been spared the last-gen port of Pro Skater 5

[Update: Despite saying it wouldn't be released on Xbox 360, Pro Skater 5 has popped up on the Xbox Live Marketplace, costing £24.99. It isn't available on the PS3, so this might well be a mistake on Activision's part. We've contacted...

Delayed last-gen Tony Hawk 5 drops this week

Following the launch of Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5 on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, Activision delayed the title's launch on last generation platforms. This was done to allow developer Robomodo to fix many of the bugs plaguing players...

Activision is aware of the Tony Hawk 5 bugs

The last four Robomodo Tony Hawk games haven't gone so swimmingly. Particularly with Tony Hawk HD and the recently released Tony Hawk 5, there have been a bunch of bugs that have been causing issues for players, from offline to on...

Review: Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5

I grew up with the Tony Hawk franchise -- at least, Neversoft's vision of it. Game after game, even some of the more questionable ones, held my interest until Proving Ground led the series astray. But in 2007, the studio was ...

You should probably hold off on buying Tony Hawk 5 for now

As you may have heard, Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5 is a bit glitchy. Now, this shouldn't come as a complete shock. Developer Robomodo, who has handled the series since 2009, hasn't had the best track record with Ride, Shred, and Tony...

Conan O'Brien takes on Tony Hawk 5 in latest Clueless Gamer

After a three-month hiatus, Conan O'Brien has resumed his Clueless Gamer segment, this time focusing on Tony Hawk 5, with guest stars Lil Wayne and Tony Hawk. I love how Conan has stuck with this bit for over three years now, as the origin...

Tony Hawk 5's PlayStation exclusive costumes are hideous

Do you want to go to sleep tonight? Then don't watch this video detailing the new Sony exclusive heads, including Ratchet, Sackboy, and Sweet Tooth. They're not full-on costumes -- they're heads, which look incredibly jarring. As an aside, ...

Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5 trailer darkslides a powerline

Yep, that looks like a Tony Hawk game all right. There are highly technical tricks on absurdly dangerous terrain. Grinding that increases speed instead of decreasing it. Just the right amount of jank in aerial maneuvers, as if skaters can ...
