I never grew up with consoles, so hopefully you can all forgive me when I say: I’m really, really bad at Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater.
But from 2.30pm AEST / 4.30pm NZST / 12.30pm AWST, you can enjoy watching Leah absolutely kick my ass up and down the skate park as we do some ollies together. W’e’ll be livestreaming Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2, and this will be part of what forms our official review next week. We’re coming at it from completely different perspectives, so it’ll be good to see how Tony Hawk holds up both from the nostalgic point of view and one that’s completely fresh.
For the record, I’ve really enjoyed what I’ve played so far. And it is, hands down, one of the best remakes of the generation.
Personally, I’m now doing the frustrating thing of relearning the controls on keyboard — there’s something about it that I’ve found is more comfortable, at least when I rebound the WASD to the arrow keys. It’s weird, I know, but ask me on the stream. I’ll explain.
If you want to jump into our Aussie Discord server as well, you can do that via the widget below. We’ve got a lovely little community going, and you can ping myself or Leah any questions, or hang out with the other TAYbies. Definitely come in and hang out!
