Review: Tony Hawk Pro Skater HD

Tony Hawk Pro skater HD is the 1st of 5 arcade games of summer featured on Xbox live this year. Tony Hawk was a series that ruled on the original Playstation, and N64 era, This HD remake of the first two titles brings back all the fun with a welcoming nostalgic feeling featuring 7 different locals from the original games, classic soundtrack, tight controls and essentially reclaiming the skateboarding throne this HD collection is a must buy.
THPS: HD looks great and plays great,
The graphics have been updated to standard current gen which isn't so bad considering the $15 Price tag, Menu's are easy to navigate through and the addition to online play is welcoming new modes, and online play add to the experience,
not all skaters from the original games return to this HD remake, and there is no character creation option, instead you use your Xbox Live avatar which looks cool.

The game plays like what a Tony Hawk game should play like, fun over the top tony hawk gaining massive air, and landing impossible tricks.
The career mode will take veterans 2 Hours to complete most of the task, When you complete all task with one skater you will unlock "Projective" which will really test your skill. It's a shame that there is NO split screen option all multi-player is done online, A bummer but not to much to harbor your experience. A new game mode "Big Head" is a fun mode to test your skill to constantly land tricks over and over without bailing, As time passes your head grows until it well blows up as you land tricks you head shrinks, bail and the growth rate speeds up the soundtrack returns only missing a few but some new additions fit right at home.

Closing Comments: 
 Tony Hawk Pro skater HD is a fun remake of 2 great games, and a perfect opportunity to fully rebut the series, Nostalgia can be a good feeling or one that you just want to forget in this games case it only kept me going until I unlocked everything with each skater, This game is a great buy and for only $15 its a steal

I'm giving Tony Hawk Pro Skater HD an 8.5/10 Fans of the series who watched it go down the drain should really consider buying this remaking of a classic, Or those who never played a Tony Hawk game this is a game to start with.

Frank Ocean Speaks On Coming Out

 In today’s Guardian, Frank finally broke silence on his letter, He covers the truth and the reason why he changed some lyrics in his songs 

“A lot of people have said that since that news came out. I suppose a percentage of that act was because of altruism; because I was thinking of how I wished at 13 or 14 there was somebody I looked up to who would have said something like that, who would have been transparent in that way. But there’s another side of it that’s just about my own sanity and my ability to feel like I’m living a life where I’m not just successful on paper, but sure that I’m happy when I wake up in the morning, and not with this freakin’ boulder on my chest.
I knew that I was writing in a way that people would ask questions. I knew that my star was rising, and I knew that if I waited I would always have somebody that I respected be able to encourage me to wait longer, to not say it till who knows when. It was important for me to know that when I go out on the road and I do these things, that I’m looking at people who are applauding because of an appreciation for me. I don’t have many secrets, so if you know that, and you’re still applauding … it may be some sort of sick validation but it was important to me. When I heard people talking about certain, you know, ‘pronouns’ in the writing of the record, I just wanted to – like I said on the post – offer some clarity; clarify, before the fire got too wild and the conversation became too unfocused and murky.
When you write a song like Forrest Gump, the subject can’t be androgynous. It requires an unnecessary amount of effort. I don’t fear anybody. So, to answer your question, yes, I could have easily changed the words. But for what? I just feel like it’s just another time now. I have no interest in contributing to that, especially with my art. It’s the one thing that I know will outlive me and outlive my feelings. It will outlive my depressive seasons.”
