Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5
a little bit of old and a little bit of new

Some of those features include the ability to play online with up to 20 players, create and share skateparks, and the ability to create your own skater. So if you're looking for some old-school thrashing with some modern fun, check out Tony Hawk Pro Skater 5 when it shreds its way onto the Xbox One, September 29.

be the story
The NBA 2K series has had a hold on the basketball simulation genre for a while, yet it continues to try and innovate and add new features to keep things interesting. Last year, we saw the evolution of the MyPlayer mode that allowed you to scan your face into the game and play an actual NBA career.
This year the guys at 2K Sports have teamed up with director Spike Lee to give your player a story and a purpose. Start from high school and make your way to the NBA despite some trials and tribulations. NBA 2K16 launches tomorrow, September 29 for the Xbox One.
NBA Live 16
don't call it a comeback, it's been here for years
The NBA Live franchise had been struggling to become relevant again since its fiasco back in 2010 when the canceled the game and it didn't return for three years. This year, they're focusing on player movement as well as a pro-am mode.
Players can now move freely during pick-and-rolls and post-ups and no longer rely on scripted animations. The new pro-am mode allows players to play online with their created player and has them playing in iconic indoor and outdoor courts. Along the way, you'll meet some famous athletes that gained their popularity on these courts.
NBA Live 16 dribbles its way onto the Xbox One tomorrow, September 29.

I haven't played Tony Hawk in some time. The music I remembered most. Catchy
That Tony Hawk remake really has no luck at having another hit when they're charging $60 for essentially, an arcade game. It makes me sad to say because I'm glad they brought the franchise back but I can't see this relaunch bring successful enough to make another game. THUG was their best game in the franchise, so I'd love to see that make a comeback (remake or sequel). Oh well...
NBA2K16 is SO GOOD! I don't know how they keep making it better every year, man.
You should add me and we can get some games going! GT: kiddj55
I like the idea behind Fat City, but it looks like a mobile game...and should be priced accordingly!
Note: The Escapists : TWD is 19.99 not "!9.99" ;)
Waiting for Tony hawk price to come down. My game list for this year is already full:Nathan, drake collection, Assassins creed syndicate,Wwe 2k16, and two more games during Christmas
