Activision is on a killing streak with franchises today. Along with cancelling Guitar Hero and True Crime, word has it that the company is shelving Tony Hawk's skateboarding games as well.
i used to love tony hawks games back in the day....
Yeah, then they started sucking.
Tony Hawk died for me after the 4th Pro Skater. I didn't really like the THUGs, Wasteland was horrible, Project 8 was laughable, and RIDE/Shred is well...no comment.
Tony Hawk 8 was the last good one mainly because of the massive soundtrack list. This is what happens when you come out with the same game every year, it doesn't leave the fans wanting more. Tony Hawk 3 was my favorite one, but I think it would be cool if Activision were to bring Tony Hawk 1,2,3 and 4 to the PSN and LIVE.
When Tony Hawk 2 came out, I thought nothing could ever stop this franchise. And then Skate 1 came out and made the whole franchise look ridiculous to begin with. Still good memories with TH1 and 2 though.
R.I.P. Tony Hawk underground and underground 2.
this franchise was already on its death bed
So, Activision is killing everything not Call of Duty related. Huh..
till the kill the dead call of duty and fuse all 3 together to make a guitar shooting game where you ride a skate-bored around Iraq shooting Spanish speaking Russian and do tricks off buildings to get star power which activates a kill streak.....with a lot of advertising like they do it would sell millions they could call it Tony's call of hero
X'D That would be awesome! that would be even better if the had the cast of TH2. Picture Spider-Man on a skate board, with a guitar gun shooting Zombie Nazis.
it doesn't sound that bad when said like that ..unfortunatly the harsh reality comes afterwards ..
I think Tony Hawk underground was the last game I enjoyed...
watch this will ed up with. a biannual cod schedule one 3rd person game 1st quarter and 1 FPS in the 4th quarter
Are we going to be seeing monthly Call of Duty games to replace Guitar Hero's release schedule?
that's a shame. i was a big tony hawk supporter i even found proving ground to be a lot of fun. the core gameplay of tony hawk games was always fun even if the story lines got out of control.
"Out with the old, in with...more old sh*t"? We already know their plans for COD, with more devs working on the franchise, for multiple releases within each year. Then there's the Spider-man franchise (don't get me started on that one), and their recent announcement of a Spyro reboot. It's safe to say Activision has run out of ideas, and is only interested in breaking the "law of diminishing returns", and maximum profitability with minimum effort. I fully expect their little experiment with Bungie to end horribly bad...a la the IW fiasco...and Bungie will run back to MS with their tails between their legs.
What really killed that series for good was having to use a skateboard controller to play the game. No offense, but if I wanted to play that way, I'd go outside and get a real skateboard.
Yes! kill it with fire
This one is admittedly a good idea.
I want a HD version of Tony Hawk 1. I loved the simplistic, but yet fun gameplay.
No more plastic board bullshit. They need to go back and play Tony Hawk 2
they need to just let it die.
After all that time it's better to let it die. It was fun playing first three games but after that it went downhill. Skate is now the king.
