Tony Hawk’s Proving Ground

It seems like only yesterday that Project 8 was being released doesn’t it?  It doesn’t matter because there’s never enough Tony Hawk for skater fans out there.  Get ready to grind it out again with the latest from the skating legend, Tony Hawk’s Proving Ground.  The game is being developed by Neversoft Entertainment and published by Activision.  It’s scheduled for a Fall 2007 release.

  1. I’m interested to try the new “Nail the …” modes they are adding because Nail the Trick was a lot of fun. I’ll probably try Skate as well, but in Tony Hawk part of the fun is pulling of tricks you never could do in real life. Skate looks to be a lot more realistic, which still could be fun, but Tony Hawk is that game you can always throw in and try new stuff when you’re bored.

  2. Project 8 was a good game, and Nail the Trick was fun. I’m curious about skating in Baltimore and DC since I live in the District. That sounds interesting.
