Tony Hawk is back! Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5 announced

by: Nathan - - 0 Comments

Let's face it, the Tony Hawk's Pro Skater franchise is one of the saddest stories in gaming history. The franchise started out strong. I'm sure we all had fond memories of the game from our youth. I could write an entire 300 page book about my memories of those games, with Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3 being my absolute favorite. Then unfortunately, the series fell from grace.

In my opinion, once Tony Hawk's Underground came along and started adding in story modes and the ability to get off the board, the game started to lose what made it so memorable in the first place. Then things went REALLY downhill when we got the atrocious Tony Hawk's Underground 2, which was nothing more than an episode of Jackass. They tried to revive the series with games like Tony Hawk's Project 8 but it just didn't have the charm that the original games had. It seemed like they were just trying to compete with EA's Skate franchise. The final nail in the coffin was with the absolutely atrocious Tony Hawk's Ride game. The less said about that the better.

It seemed like the franchise had been dead an buried until earlier this year when Tony Hawk started sending out cryptic tweets. Could a new Tony Hawk game be on the way? Today we got our answer, and the answer is yes. 

Game Informer broke the news that Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5 is official and will bring the series back to its roots like the first four games. The June issue of Game Informer will have a 6 page spread about the game but they have dropped some details for us today. The game will feature the classic arcade style gameplay we all remember but will bring some new elements into the game as well including power-ups and the ability to shoot projectiles during some missions. The game will also feature a new set of levels and objectives which can be completed solo or with a co-op partner online. They also confirmed that the create a skate park feature will return and you have the ability to upload and share your parks with players around the world. 

Finally, it wouldnt be a Tony Hawk game without skaters of course and the game will bring back some familiar favorites and will also include a new generation of skaters as well. Characters include Nyjah Huston, Aaron Homoki, Ishod Wair, Riley Hawk, Lizzie Armanto, Chris Cole, David Gonzalez, Leticia Bufoni, and Andrew Reynolds.

The game is scheduled to be released later this year on PS4 and Xbox One with last gen versions to follow after. 

I am extremely excited for this and I can only hope that the game will feature an epic soundtrack as well because that is also one of the other things that I have loved about the Tony Hawk game. Playing Tony Hawk 3 in my friends basement at 3AM with Ace of Spades blasting from the TV... good times. 

Duck mounts come to Everquest II...no, seriously

by: Russell - - 0 Comments

Everquest II has been around for a long time and working on a game this long can make anyone go completely crazy.  Imagine then having to create a duck mount for use in the game.  Yes you read that correctly.  Everquest II now has duck mounts available from now through May 19th for 1950 SC.  That honestly just sounds crazy...speaking of which, lets take a look at an EQ2 developer who learns the real cost of creating a duck mount.

Spoilers: Jason's ending and fatalities in MK X

by: Jeremy - - 0 Comments

Mortal Kombat X players around the world are anxiously refreshing the game's main screen in hopes that the new Jason Voorhees character will show up in their region. NetherRealm has slowly been rolling the character out throughout the day as the various regions have updated their digital networks. I managed to "massage" him out of the PlayStation Network in North America this afternoon and quickly went to find out both his second (and first) fatality and arcade mode ending to share with everyone.

Long story short, he is a really fun character to play and his ending is really, REALLY cool. Check it out!

Now you're playing with Portal Pinball

by: John - - 0 Comments

Zen Studios and Valve Software are teaming up to bring one of Valve's most iconic games to the pinball world. Portal Pinball will center around Chell, GLaDOS, Wheatley, and the tests in Apeture Labs.

The co-op robots ATLAS and P-Body will be making an appearance too. Zen teased a Valve image a few weeks ago and there were many of us on the staff speculating that it would be either Half-Life or Portal related for a pinball table. Well, Portal it is and I think the potential for this table is pretty damn good.

Portal Pinball will be available May 25th for a plethora of platforms.

This music video might make me reinstall Spore

by: Randy - - 0 Comments

This clean, data-is-beautiful-styled video is a visualization for 20syl's "Back & Forth," directed by Thomas Forthe. The pixels build into voxels, which build into motherboards, which build into the world around us. The splashy, chiptuned dance vibes go all the way up, then come all the way back down.

Reminds me of Will Wright's Spore (Gaming Nexus score 9.1 out of 10) from 2008. Man, has it really been seven years? Spore was a game that couldn't live up to its monumental, crowd-hyped expectations, but I'll tell you what: No game since has even tried to match its scale and scope. I feel like I got more out of it than most critics.

Regardless, the way this music video's camera keeps pulling back, revealing a continually embiggening universe, is what made Spore pop into my head.

GOG launches an open beta for their Steam competitor, Galaxy

by: John - - 0 Comments

Some folks are unhappy with how Steam has been lately, so they might be looking for some alternatives. Origin is an option, but now GOG is getting into the game.

Today, you can sign up for the open beta of GOG Galaxy. This client actually sounds like it has some really great features. You can turn off auto updates if you like. If an update does something to your game, you can roll back to a previous version. Backup your games or download a DRM free version as well.

Of course you'll get achievements, multiplayer matching, friend's list, chatting, and a few other of the game client staples. For starting it, it sounds very promising. Another player in the game is always welcomed and I can't wait to see how Galaxy evolves and competes with Steam and Origin.
