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

2012-07-20 15:30:00·  2 minute read   ·  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!
