A massive haul from several Goodwill’s around the area helped to make this first official Sunday Roundup of 2015 a big one. There isn’t anything extraordinary in the haul this week, but there are some fun titles and some titles I’ve been sitting on for a long time. I also continued the trend of buying the entire Tony Hawk’s series someone keeps donating. Eventually I’ll run out of games/consoles I don’t have yet, so I’ll need to think of something else to do in the meantime. Read the rest of this entry »

Two things I didn’t know about this game: 1) It actually uses the same game engine as the Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater franchise, and 2) Activision held a contest to cast the kid skaters in the game!

While note as long lasting as, say, THPS3, DESA is a great skating game, and much better than Tony’s recent debacles. As a much more approachable version of Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater for a younger audience, Disney’s Extreme Skate Adventure comes, surprisingly, recommended!
