Today on Highlight Reel we have some impressive jumps, impossible tricks, cop escapes, clumsy dogs, good Rainbow Six bomb timing, and much more!
Oh, Tony. Your name was once synonymous with good games and even better soundtracks. Seeing your brand reduced to this, even after all the recent heartbreak, is just...sigh.
While you don't need Tony Hawk to realize that the HUVr Back to the Future hoverboards were fake, the legendary skateboarder still felt it needed some explanation.
There have been reports of a new Tony Hawk game floating around the internet but the all-star skateboarder himself confirmed that it's on the way. And it sounds like it's being built primarily for mobile devices.
There is no debate that Wargaming's online tank simulator World of Tanks is as realistic as it can be. It's relatively slow and tactical. But sometimes it gets a little too realistic and out of control, mostly when you land on other tanks. Tony Hawk and skaters would be proud of that huge 180.
Video games that rely on a lot of physics-driven character animations tend to have some pretty funny glitches. Last week, we shared a selection of the most awesome classic sport game glitches, so it only made sense to do a follow-up, featuring skateboarding games.
What do you remember most about the original Tony Hawk skateboarding games? The rush of putting together an epic thread of tricks? The exhilaration of notching ever-higher scores? Yeah, those were all great. You'll get those in the Tony Hawk HD remake that hits Xbox Live today. But the pain… the pain was always…
The Xbox Live Summer of Arcade promotion has become a bona fide hot weather event in gaming. For the fifth summer running, Microsoft will be releasing and promoting promising download-only titles via Xbox Live Arcade. This year, the Summer of Arcade starts on July 18 and runs until mid-August. What's on deck, when's…
It was the first question I and many others asked when we first heard about Tony Hawk HD: Okay, but what about the soundtrack?
While at GDC, I talked to skating legend Tony Hawk about the upcoming re-make of the releases that made him an icon to a generation of gamers. He thinks it's great but, of course, he would. Me? I found myself surprised at how much I missed the unique style of extreme sports offered by the Tony Hawk Pro Skater games.
We caught up with Tony Hawk, pro skater, to ask him about Tony Hawk's Pro Skater, the high-definition update of everyone's favorite levels from the first two Pro Skater games. Here the skateboarding legend tells us his favorite levels, and why they deserve a remake in the first place.
The best thing about the first two Tony Hawk games, better than the games themselves, were their soundtracks. They were amazing. If you were hoping some of those standout tracks would be in the upcoming HD re-release, though, don't get your hopes up.
Having teased such an announcement earlier in the week, at tonight's Spike VGAs skate legend Tony Hawk made it official: after a short hiatus in 2011, his series will be back in 2012 with Tony Hawk HD.
Activision's Tony Hawk franchise took its first ever year off in 2011 because it had been run into the ground. Too many games in too many years with not enough new ideas. With the Spike Video Game Awards coming up, it appears that one year off is all Activision felt it could afford.

"We're going to do something probably for next year but I can't give too much away," the skater said recently. [Pixelated Geek via GameSpot via VG247]
There will be no skateboarding games, no music games coming from Tony Hawk and Guitar Hero publisher Activision in 2011. That means no DJ Hero 3 to play and no Tony Hawk games to stand on this year. And, oh yeah, no Guitar Hero games.
The heyday of skateboarding games is past, the head of EA, the company that makes Tony Hawk rival franchise Skate, told Kotaku in an interview this week.
