Perfectly poised

Is skating still popular? We're not sure, but we certainly don't recognise any of the pros from this Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5 trailer. Well, aside from the Birdman and his son Riley, of course. In this clip, the "stars" talk about how cool it is being in a video game, which we can understand – especially seeing as most of these grew up with Activision's series.

The game still looks rough, though. The new art style has been fully implemented now, and you could argue that it looks a little cleaner and more colourful – but the animations and physics look all kinds of wrong in our opinion, and we can't imagine that this is going to be all that fun to play. The proof will be in the pudding, though – it's out next month.
