Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater HD (360): COMPLETED!

With one character, at least: all cash and goals on all levels GET! That’s not the end though – oh no. There’s never really an end to proper Tony Hawk’s games anyway, but as well as having other skaters to play as, completing the game also unlocks a new game mode: PROjectives. This is a … Continue reading “Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater HD (360): COMPLETED!”

Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater HD (360)

Let me say this: BEST. GAME. EVAAR. It’s a remix of THPS1 and THPS2, with new graphics. Which is instantly awesome. It even retains some of the music from the originals. And it only cost £8-ish. And you know I like Tony Hawk games. Oh yes. It came out last Wednesday, and I’ve played it … Continue reading “Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater HD (360)”

Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 3 (GC): COMPLETED!

Oh Tony, Tony, Tony. Where did it all go wrong? Why, after the utter perfection that is THPS3 did you let your amazing series of amazing games turn into the shambles that is Ride and Shred? Oh Tony! Why have you forsaken me, your most ardent of skateboard game fans? Me, who has completed every single … Continue reading “Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 3 (GC): COMPLETED!”

Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 2 (iPhone)

TONY HAWK. He’s the best guy ever! Well, maybe Tom Jones is better. Hmm. But he’s still GREAT, and his games (aside from RIDE, but we’ll just forget that one…) are GREAT. And THPS2 is one of the MOST GREAT games. And now it’s on the iPhone! Amazing!  Surprisingly, it works really well. Controls are … Continue reading “Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 2 (iPhone)”

Tony Hawk’s Downhill Jam (Wii): COMPLETED!

Just three years and 9 days after buying it, I finally completed Downhill Jam! Turns out I was just being rubbish last time, as today I sailed through the final Tier will no problems at all.

Tony Hawk’s Downhill Jam (Wii)

It seems that there’s another Tier after Tier 9. Yeah, Tier 10. Who knew? And it’s very hard. In fact, I can only do the first event, and even that was a bronze (and I only just scraped through with that!). This must be the final Tier now though, I’m sure, as I no longer … Continue reading “Tony Hawk’s Downhill Jam (Wii)”

Tony Hawk’s Downhill Jam (Wii)

For reasons not entirely well known, I started playing this today. Well, started again. You see, I bought it with my launch Wii, but having only recently – at the time – hammered the “proper” Tony Hawk games (which I love) the different controls and mechanics just put me off. Odd, since they never bothered … Continue reading “Tony Hawk’s Downhill Jam (Wii)”

Tony Hawk’s Proving Ground (360)

So I got my subwoofer working today. Good grief does it make a difference! Every skate-check gets a heavy thump, bailing makes a deep crunch, even aggro kicking gets a meaty whoomph from the speaker. Excellent! As far as the game went, I (again) beat a few more street challenges, and then mopped up some … Continue reading “Tony Hawk’s Proving Ground (360)”

Tony Hawk’s Proving Ground (360)

Since today was mainly taken up with setting up my new surround sound kit, I didn’t spend long playing games. I did, however, break Tony out for a while and finished off the last Uber Goals, completing those remaining. The Pro one was really quite hard (on the Nail The Trick demo especially), until I … Continue reading “Tony Hawk’s Proving Ground (360)”

Tony Hawk’s Proving Ground (360)

Yes, I did skip two days of playing games. I was busy! Mainly with resurrecting the dead. But then I came back… to Tony. Again. Can’t stay away. So I thought I’d have a crack the Uber Goals again, and managed the Hardcore one without a problem. I haven’t attempted the Rigger one at all … Continue reading “Tony Hawk’s Proving Ground (360)”

Tony Hawk’s Proving Ground (360)

So about this “I’m done with the game now” post last night. It was clearly a lie, wasn’t it? Completed Pro in two more Classic Goals runs, Am in a third, and one Am and one Pro for the Pac-Man-meets-Tony-Hawk “Hawk-man” runs. Not a chance in hell I’ll get Sick for any of the Classic … Continue reading “Tony Hawk’s Proving Ground (360)”

Tony Hawk’s Proving Ground (360)

OK. I think after today’s session I’m “done” with this now. I’ll no doubt come back to improve on some of the bits I’ve only got Am on, or for a bit of a skate for fun. Or maybe I’ll play online a bit. But I’ve done all the story goals in all the storylines, … Continue reading “Tony Hawk’s Proving Ground (360)”

Tony Hawk’s Proving Ground (360)

I thought the game was about to take a turn for the crap when I realised Bam Margera was in it. His sections in “The Tony Hawk Dark Days Trilogy” (that’s THUG, THUG 2 and THAW to you) were the least Tony Hawk-y and, generally, crap. I mean, I love Bam and all, but he … Continue reading “Tony Hawk’s Proving Ground (360)”

Tony Hawk’s Proving Ground (360)

Yeah, I know I completed it earlier, but there’s still quite a bit to do. Not least, almost all of the Rigger storyline. Which is what I spent most of my time on. It seems very hand-holdy. You’re told exactly what to rig or mod, and how. Yeah, you’ve a bit of freedom over adding … Continue reading “Tony Hawk’s Proving Ground (360)”

Tony Hawk’s Proving Ground (360): COMPLETED!

So it would seem that in order to complete the game, you just have to do X many goals, and then impress Y many pros, then do the final video with the pros in. So I did! Hurrah! I still have most of the Rigger stuff to go, and loads more street challenges, but the … Continue reading “Tony Hawk’s Proving Ground (360): COMPLETED!”
