Hi. I'm Joystiq writer Griffin McElroy, and those are my feet. They're attached to my shins, which attach to a long sequence of other appendages which stop at my brain -- which at the very moment this image was taken, was likely in a confused, panicked state. It's a reflex reaction I usually turn ...

If you're looking to add a dash of '80s flair to your Tony Hawk Ride experience, you can either glue the skateboard peripheral onto one of those longboards, or you could just pre-order the game at GameStop. Those who choose the latter will gain access to the 80s Quicksilver Level, which is said to...

The last time we saw Tony Hawk Ride, it was being played by a bunch of pro skaters who were falling over each other to proclaim the game's brilliance (it couldn't have anything to do with the fact they're all in the game, right?). Well, consider this video the sequel, as it brings even more pro skat...

You can only imagine how exciting this is for me personally. Now that Activision has revealed that the Tony Hawk Ride board peripheral will be white when it finally releases, I'm among the elite few who used it when it was black. I'm at the epicenter of the maelstrom, like a guy who saw the Kenned...

Joshua Tsui, president of Tony Hawk Ride developer Robomodo, told Videogamer.com that gamers concerned about blowing a bunch of money on the package should see it as an investment in a new platform, because the skateboard peripheral that comes with Ride won't be a single-use device. "It's really im...

The most important thing to understand about Tony Hawk Ride is that it's not a Tony Hawk game with a special skateboard peripheral. This is, in a very real sense, a completely new franchise that dispenses with the tropes of the series when they don't suit its needs. First, it's not an open world ...

Bad news for Ricky "Steel Knees" Chamberlain, the world's only 350-lb. pro skater: The proprietary Tony Hawk Ride board is limited to folks 300 lbs. and under, according to Robomodo. It's kind of a moot point though. We're not sure how to put this in a kind fashion, so we'll just come out with it...

Want to humble a videogame journalist? Ask him if he skates and, if he answers with a modest "a little bit," proceed to make him lose his balance and stumble off of your toy skateboard controller. That was the scene seen again and again at Activision's thumping booth on the E3 show floor, and we to...

We still don't know much about Tony Hawk Ride's board-shaped peripheral. Things like "How much will it cost?" (GameStop indicates that it won't be cheap) or "How does it work?" While clearly powered, in part, by your "imagination," a recent video from USA Today (found after the break) adds some tec...

GameStop's site recently posted a price and release date for Tony Hawk Ride, affixing a cost of $120 onto the bundle for all systems, along with a release date of October 13. While it's by no means official confirmation of the game's release date or price, it should prepare you for the worst. Coin...

Believe it or not, it has been just over two years since the last Xbox 360 release of a new Tony Hawk title. Shockingly, Activision decided the series needed a break ... to search for innovation, presumably. Since the first Pro Skater title in 1999, Neversoft has been at the helm of the extreme sp...

We haven't heard much on the latest Tony Hawk game that is supposed to be in development, aside from there supposedly being a peripheral key to gameplay that Activision is designing themselves. Well, we've got some news now: Neversoft, the developers who started the franchise, have handed off the ...

We've heard a number of rumors to this effect, but for the first time, Neversoft co-founder Joel Jewett recently confirmed in an interview with the Great Falls Tribune that the long-time developer of the Tony Hawk series has passed the torch to a new developer in order to solely focus on the Guita...

A handful of folks left jobless in the wake of EA Chicago's closure last November have banded together to form their own independent development studio, Robomodo. The company was actually -- and quiet stealthily we might add -- formed in January 2008 by a number of EA Chicago vets, including Robomo...
