Rundown (9/27-10/03) Rundown CXXXIV: The Darkening

0 KLK Everybody's getting scary I don't know about this guys I am freaking out here spooky skelemenI should probably bring up how Tony Hawk Pro Skater 5 is quite the turd of a game from what I can tell.  With a Metacritic of 36 on the PS4 and a… 48 on XBO?  I thought that the XBO version wouldn’t work for some people because the game is so terribly made and needs a patch bigger than the game itself to, presumably, even run.  Bad framerate, textures, physics, and general game feel all make it a title that will likely just be an ash can project made to renew a license that Activision probably only spent a few million making and shat out the door six months too early…  Not that I really care about the series though, I just like the soundtracks of the first four games and that’s it.
