Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater HD developed by Robomodo

Hot off the heels of the Spike Video Game Awards announcement of Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater HD, some more details emerge on this return to form for the Hawkman. First, the game is being developed by Robomodo who’ve made Tony Hawk: Ride and Tony Hawk: Shred and the game should be about 1200 MSP ($15).

“We’ve updated many elements to reflect today’s skateboarding scene as well. Long-time fans of the series will appreciate the huge amount of polished content at a very low price” Tony Hawk said. So while it will combine the best elements of THPS 1 and 2, it’ll also have some new features. Not to mention some returning skateboarders like Eric Koston and Rodney Mullen with newcomers such as Chris Cole and Tony Hawk’s son, Riley Hawk. “Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater HD just feels right – we’re simply giving fans what they’ve been clamoring for.” said David Oxford of Activision Publishing. We’ll be tightening our trucks for the release in the summer next year.

Team Meat brings more meat to the table

In the past few months Super Meat Boy and Team Meat have been all over the interwebs, between them promoting their game and publicly registering their distaste for Microsoft and how they handle business. As many of you know Microsoft and Team Meat have recently kissed and made up and apparently this couldn’t have come at a better time. Last week, Team Meat made a fun little video in commemoration of their one year anniversary and now we have the announcement for new DLC come to Super Meat Boy. Not sure when or how much it will be but Team Meat had this to say on Twitter:

ATTN: Xbox Internets Levels are in approval now. Fingers crossed for them dropping next week.

What we are playing: December 11

What we are playing is a weekly column that appears each weekend. Various staff members let the world know what games had them hooked the past week and which ones they look forward to.

Steve Melton – Tried out MotorStorm: Apocalypse at GameStop while waiting on a pizza next door. EA needs to have Criterion make a game just like this, but mixed with Burnout. That’d be a day one purchase for the entire world.

Ross Adams – I finally got Skyrim this week. That’s all I can say, I’ve already wasted too much time typing this. Those Dragons won’t kill themselves!

Perry Jackson – Been playing a lot of Joe Danger: Special Edition for review which should be out shortly this week. I would start saving up your points for it just in case.

John Drawdy – This week I went back to Orcs Must Die! to finally finish up my five skull runs. Other then that, I have been addicted to Mirror’s Edge for iOS, amazingly simplistic yet still challenging.

Ryan ReynoldsBattlefield 3, Modern Warfare 3, Gears of War 3, and Halo: Reach. Had to try out those Anniversary maps. Needless to say, I’ve been shooting a lot of stuff.

Christine Mitchell – Still working my way through Oblivion and Might and Magic: Clash of Heroes. I also “played” with the new dashboard’s voice control features. It’s like the future or something!

And our winner for “What are YOU playing” on our official Twitter is @YourPalQwerty

@YourPalQwertyDungeon Defenders and I’m currently checking out Fusion: Genesis.


More news on Alan Wake’s American Nightmare

The reveal of Alan Wake’s American Nightmare excited everyone here from the debut trailer at the Spike VGAs last night. Now we have some new details on the game from a Finnish Xbox magazine on what to expect from the new atmosphere.

It’ll be based in the Arizona/Route 66 area and takes place in an episode of “Night Springs”, the fictional TV show Wake used to write for. The feel of the game will be more similar to Quentin Tarantino’s From Dusk Till Dawn. It will also take many hours to complete and a new Arcade mode entitled “Fight Till Dawn” which has you fighting waves and waves of enemies. This will also not be the last of Alan Wake, further confirming this is a new adventure and not Alan Wake 2. All of this sounds spine-chilling and will keep your fingers quivering as it releases early next year.
