The Tony Hawk skateboarding series has been a bit of a downward spiral in recent years. With EA bringing the incredibly impressive Skate to the masses, many have been left wondering if the Birdman will ever fly again. Activision is trying to pump new life into the series with a brand-new peripheral called the Ride Board. The Wii has the remote and nunchuk and Tony Hawk: Ride has the Ride Board (for Xbox 360, PS3 and Wii). After playing with the new controller for a short session, IGN will say that both the game and peripheral have a ways to go if they're going to land the famous 900 that the titular character is known for.
