I haven’t played a Tony Hawk game in years. Why? Because fucking actual skateboarding is ten thousands times more fun.
There’s nothing rad about grinding from your couch. I’m sorry, but that’s fact. When I play video games, I prefer the titles that permit me the ability to do things that, in life, I could never do. Like kill a hooker or dunk on Kobe.
But I could be down to play Tony Hawk again because of this new expansion pack that allows you to board as Metallica’s James Hetfield or Robert Trujillo. I feel like this is old news, but that image is certainly new.
The guys are unlockable characters in the game, and from the looks of that image, are barely recognizable.
Actually, Rob actually sorta looks like Rob but no way that looks like Hetfield, man. No fucking way. I guess in real life these dudes ride; I’d like to see Hetfield ollie. Just once.
The aforementioned expansion pack will be available for download December 4 through Xbox Live for $5.
