Mary Anne Butler (Mab) has been part of the fast-paced world of journalism since she was 15, getting her start in album reviews and live concert coverage for a nationally published (print) music magazine. She eventually transitioned to online media, writing for such sites as UGO/IGN, ComicsOnline, Geek Magazine, Ace of Geeks, Aggressive Comix (where she is still Editor-in-Chief), Bleeding Cool (where she was News Editor), and now NerdBot as News Editor. Over the past 10 years, she’s built a reputation at conventions across the globe as a cosplayer (occasionally), photographer (constantly), panelist and moderator (mostly), and reporter (always). Interviews, reviews, observations, breaking news, and objective reporting are the name of the game for the founder of Harkonnen Knife Fight, a Dune-themed band with an international presence. Though she be but little, she is fierce.

As if there weren’t enough video game announcements this week- along comes “Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2” are getting the remaster treatment!

Activision and Vicarious Visions have really gone all out on this remaster, updating the original feel for current generation consoles.

Simon Ebejer, Vicarious Visions COO, had some things to say about this news according to our friends over at The Verge:

““We didn’t want the game to be ‘Okay, you play Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1, and then play THPS2 and start over from scratch, just like you would have if you bought the games back in the day. The meta that sits over top of everything allows players to not feel like they’re losing progress by playing either one of the games.”

I believe that makes us the ideal studio to faithfully remaster Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 and 2.

The challenge of a faithful remaster is knowing where to push the boundaries, and what to keep sacred. It’s important to capture the original experience. make it feel like a game meant for 2020.”


Today is actually Tony Hawk‘s birthday, which makes this announcement even more special.
