It's 1999. You hang out with homies, do what we did in 1999: listen to punk rock music and pretend to be one of the greatest skateboards on the planet. Yes, you played Tony Hawks Pro Skater one of the most iconic games of that era.
If you are just as nostalgic about the countless hours you spent THPS as I am, then you will be totally psyched to know that the first two games of the franchise are getting the right remaster and will be released in September . But wait! It gets better.
First, the games are combined into one, um, super sports of various kinds. Instead of playing the first one and then starting over from the beginning of 2 you will be able to flow freely between the games with the same characters and whatnot. Speaking of characters, they're all back for the remaster.
It includes all your favorites: Tony Hawk, Steve Caballero, Chad Muska, Andrew Reynolds, Geoff Rowley, Bucky Lasek, Elissa Steamer, Eric Kosten, Rune Glifberg, Kareem Campbell, Jamie Thomas, Bob Burnquist and the most innovative skateboarder of all time, Rodney Mullen. It is noted that most of the music is back as well ̵1; some of it was released due to licensing issues, however. It is unclear which tracks will be missing, but at least it is not the Lagwagon. Or Millencolin.
Not only will the game contain all well-known venues, skates and [most of the] music, but they will also have new features. The most notable is the addition of online games, so you can kill a HORSE game with your homeboys at a distance. But you also get local multiplayer as well, just like the good days. A more robust park creator – and the ability to share said created parks – is also part of the deal here.
The remaster is currently scheduled to be released on PS4, Xbox One and PC and will be available on September 4th. I don't know about you, but I'm already counting the days – go ahead and ask your mom if you can spend the night with me.
