Amazing Kid Backflips Off His Skateboard

I’ll be honest, as a kid I had trouble just serving a volleyball during gym glass. So there’s only one way I can describe how I feel about my childhood skills after I watched this kid backflip off his skateboard: #fail. The goal of young skater, Egill Gunnar, was to backflip off of one skateboard and […]

Game Review: Tony Hawk Proving Grounds

Let me start off by making this perfectly clear. To me, the last great boarding game was Tony Hawk Pro Skater 3. Don’t get me wrong, I dig the Tony Hawk series, but once you were able to step off the board in-game, it just seemed to go downhill (no pun intended with Tony Hawk Downhill Jam). For this reason, I was a little weary of reviewing the latest installment of Tony Hawk’s Proving Ground for the Xbox 360. Set in the streets of Baltimore, Philadelphia and Washington D.C., Tony Hawk’s Proving Ground is the largest and deepest Hawk title to date. From choosing your brands in custom player creation to reaching for your ideal style of skating, this title has so much in it that once you beat the game you’re not even scratching the surface. A slew of features such as a full featured video editor, your own online customizable skating lounge, seamless online connectivity, Nail the Trick custom combos and even new methods of gaining speed, showing that Proving Ground is a step up from previous titles.
