Destroy All Humans! (Again?)

Remake of 2005 Destroy All Humans!

Old Crypto – New Crypto

Welcome you flesh bags covered with brightly colored fabrics. I’ve come to find out what your colony is all about! Again. Thanks to THQ Nordic for grabbing the rights to THQ‘s Destroy All Humans, we now have a beautiful 2020 remake of our 15 year old game!

THQ Nordic has kept all of the story and voicing the same, which makes for some amazing nostalgia. Running around as Crypto, the badass probing Alien from Furon. Learn from the beginning that the humans must fear us and to fear us, they must not learn from 136 the secrets of our kind and technology! So take their brain.

Thanks Pox. I’ll get right on that. Crypto as we know and love him, came to Earth to try and save his fellow Furon known as Cryptosporidium-136. Yet as we can all hear screaming through the telecommunicator, Pox wants to study the humans so he asks Crypto to go and relieve the humans of their heavy brain stems.

New Mission Screens

The visual upgrades don’t stop at just the characters and environment, but also moves into the menus and selection screens. The smoothness of moving through the menus is nothing like the original, where you were waiting minutes for your menus to pop and load. No guessing if you collected everything or finished all of the missions in one area or not, DAH! now has detailed screens to go through as you progress through the game!

As always, Crypto has his variety choices of weapons to use as well as suits. Yes, suits. And yes, we are talking about human skin suits. As you move around Rockwell, a Furon isn’t the most welcome sight as you’ll find yourself surrounded by hundreds of government black suits.

Learn about Crypto and his Furon kind, why they made their way to Earth in the first place. Why their interest in the human race is so deep, and why is everyone named either Crypto or Pox? What’s up with that?

All Crypto wants it to murder some fleshy human bags, but Pox on the other hand, has a deeper more intricate reason for sending Crypto to Earth. And let me tell you, it’s not because of how adorable Crypto looks in his little Cow suit.

All in all, Destroy All Humans! isn’t for everyone. This game offers some cute running around as an alien, destroying humans and the environment. As someone who had played this game and the others in the original series, it was nice to see some tender love and care put into the remake. This is definitely a casual game, something you could pick up and put down at anytime. The humor is definitely the best part of this game, which is a little adult rated. However, that’s what makes it fun.

Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2 Remaster Coming September 4, 2020

Skateboards out this September.

It’s time to get back on the skateboard—Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2 is coming to the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC on September 4, 2020. Today also happens to be skateboarding legend Tony Hawk’s birthday. Original publisher Activision and developer Vicarious Visions (who also did the Crash Bandicoot remasters) are working on the project.

The last game in the series, Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5, came out in 2015. The licensing deal between Tony Hawk and Activision was set to expire at the end of the year, and fans were disappointed in the game. There were rumors of a remaster of the series in 2019, and today, the remaster has been officially announced.

“Thanks to all the fans of our series for keeping this dream alive,” Hawk said on Twitter. The original cast from the games will be returning. Skateboarding fans will recognize faces such as Steve Caballero, Geoff Rowley, Bucky Lasek, Elissa Steamer, Kareem Campbell, Andrew Reynolds, Bob Burnquist, Eric Koston, Rodney Mullen, Jamie Thomas, Rune Glifberg, and Chad Muska.

The 4K resolution graphics aren’t the only new thing coming to this remaster.

While everyone would love to skate their favorite levels in 4K resolution, you can also do tricks like wall plants, reverts, and lip tricks. The game is also known for its iconic soundtrack, but due to licensing issues, some of the tracks from both games will not be available in the remastered version.

You can even create your own skater and your own skatepark, and even share those parks with your friends online. The game will be available on September 4, 2020, for $39.99. You can purchase the digital deluxe edition for $49.99, or even get the collector’s edition for $99.99, which includes a full-sized Birdhouse deck autographed by Tony Hawk himself.
