After my brothers were done with the PS2, they looked up the attic for more console Tony Hawk games, and found Underground 2 on the Original Xbox, so I set up that console for them in the sitting room.
My brother has been playing Underground 2 for about a week now, completing the story mode several times now and now going through classic mode to get the rest of levels or whatever else needs to be unlocked.
We played some multiplayer games as well, all of which I lost, badly… then we played some Medal of Honor: Rising Sun, which hasn’t aged well… at all…
My other brother had some games of Tony Hawks Underground 2 as well.
The brother that wanted to play THUG2, has 100%’d it, too.
Meanwhile, I installed Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 2-4 and Underground 2 on my PC, I played through Underground 2, and now I’m playing Pro Skater 3 and 4. I’m still tryting to get 2 working properly.
I’ve beaten THPS3’s career mode twice so far, once with my own skater, the second time with Doom Guy!
My brother has almost 100%ed THUG2, he trying to get all of the gaps now. He has taken interest in real skateboards, and has shown me some he is interested in.
My brother is now going for all the gaps in THUG2, he’s really dedicated…
My other brother apparently played some Tony Hawk’s Project 8 on Xbox, and didn’t like it…
Meanwhile, I myself am playing through Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 3 on PC, I’ve played through the career with my custom skater, Doom Guy, Wolverine, Darth Maul and Doom, Guy!
My brother has given up on getting all gaps in THUG2, and is instead making his own custom story for the game using the creeate-a-goal feature, and he wants me to check it out when he’s done… I can’t wait to try it!
I have played through THPS3 with Private Camerera and Steve Calberello. I’m aiming to, m,inus all gaps, totally 100% the game with all characters!
That’s it for this weeks retro diary, see you all next week, I guess.
