Tony Hawk's Pro Skater HD Is Finally Given A Release Date For The PSN

With skateboarding games not being as plentiful as they once were the options gamers have are somewhat dry these days.  EA’s Skate series is dead and buried but thankfully the Tony Hawk franchise returned last month with Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater HD.  As a HD remake of the classic Tony Hawk games the product as a whole was solid as it provided that same classic formula but with a new coat of paint that not only looked good but managed to hold things together.

Tony Hawk's Pro Skater HD Screens May Take You On A Nostalgia Trip

A welcomed surprise that was revealed last month at the Spike Video Game Awards was the shocking announcement that Activision was doing Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater HD.  Skateboarding may not be as overwhelming popular as it once was back in the day, but gamers still yearn for a good video game skateboarding experience.

Tony Hawk Returns For What Could Be The Ultimate Skateboard Video Game Experience

The skateboarding genre is living on through a somewhat unlikely way: the Tony Hawk franchise.  Longtime gamers and skateboarding fans all know that it was the first Tony Hawk game released way back in 1999 that set off the skateboarding video game craze – something that would go on to last for nearly a decade.  The Tony Hawk games were beyond fun but then the quality began to decline and EA’s competing Skate franchise eventually took the skateboarding crown.

Robomodo Looks To The Community To Get Their New Game Off The Ground

Most of the time if a developer can’t get enough money in to develop a project they simply leave it dormant until a suitor finally comes along.  Of course smaller indie developers go all out to develop their passion projects by working tirelessly and even going into their own bank accounts to get things done if need be.  Developer Robomodo is doing something a bit different as an established studio as they’ve opened a Kickstarter page for their new XBLA title Bodoink.

Activision Outlines Their New Plans (True Crime canned, new CoD service)

I think Activision has hit a new time low today while still maybe recognizing that they should improve things but at the same time looking like a completely soulless corporation.  Announced during their financial report, Activision has decided to cease development on the 2011 version of Guitar Hero along with revealing that they don’t plan to release a new iteration in the Tony Hawk Skateboarding franchise. In addition to Guitar Hero getting the axed, DJ Hero has also been given the pink slip and so have the developers behind it.

First screens of Tony Hawk: Shred

Since Activision didn’t feel so inclined to properly showcase the game at E3, we now have our first screens for Tony Hawk: Shred. The follow-up to last year’s mega hit (I’m kidding) Tony Hawk: Ride, Shred once again features more arcade skateboarding action but this time gamers can also shred some pow as snowboarding is also included.

Tony Hawk reveals the name of his next game

I have to imagine at this point Tony Hawk owns a skateboard that is made out of $500 bills.  I’m not just talking about a snazzy skate deck that is a piece of art. I mean an actual board complete with trucks and wheels that is capable of skating. That’s how rich Tony Hawk is, the man has enough cash to engineer and design a board made out of money; he swims in it all the time.

Tony Hawk plans on taking you for a Ride

When the first Tony Hawk game was released it was a massive hit that was the first game to really capture what skating is all about. The game then became a massive franchise that helped make skating more mainstream and acceptable. Like any good franchise each installment in the Tony Hawk series added new features and improved visuals that really improved the product and it’s widely regarded that Tony Hawk 3 is the pinnacle in the series.
