If you grew up in the 90's and owned a Playstation, you probably at some point played Tony Hawk's Pro Skater or it's sequels. A skateboarding game designed by Neversoft and published by Activision. Well, after Activision ran the series into the ground, they disbanded Neversoft and merged the studio into Infinity Ward. The later THPS games to be released such as Tony Hawk HD and Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5 was done by another studio, but fear not, it has been confirmed by Tony Hawk himself that they are working with Activision to put out Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1&2 Remastered. One would think it is going to be a full fledged remaster of both games mashed into one, or perhaps they will be 2 separate games. We don't know at this point, all we know is that it (they?) are coming.
Tony Hawk has confirmed it in a video with Jack Black on his youtube channel and Jack was able to play an early build of the game. See the footage below.
Streets of Rage was a classic beat-em-up/brawler from the 1990's on the Sega Genesis/MegaDrive. It was Sega's answer to Capcom's Final Fight series. Streets of Rage was so well received it spawned 2 sequels in 1992 and 1994 respectively. There was even ports to the Sega Master System & Sega Game Gear. These versions were scaled down 8-bit versions of their big 16-bit brothers. The series was a lot of fun with catchy techno/dance/club music infused that kept the player pumped up through the waves and rounds of endless enemies to beat up while you made your way to the final boss, Mr. X. A crime syndicate that took over your once peaceful city.
The first game follows 3 vigilante cops, Axel Stone, Blaze Fielding and Adam Hunter. The trio must clean the city of the evil influence of the syndicate & Mr. X, they will risk their lives on the Streets of Rage. The series was a blast to play back in the day. However, Sega went through 2 other console generations with the Sega Saturn and...
After there were major spoilors leaked for the upcoming Last of Us Part 2 by someone from within Naughty Dog, Sony has decided to push up the release date on not only The Last of Us Part 2 but also their upcoming Ghost of Tsushima game. The two new release dates are as follows The Last of Us Part 2 will now be released on June 19th, 2020 and Ghost of Tsushima will follow on July 17th, 2020.
In recent events with what's going on in the world, we see this as Sony's way of doing some form of damage control so that these games aren't spoiled and ruined for the masses. We're okay with these new release dates though! Are you excited to get your hands on either of these games?

Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 Remastered is currently available on the Playstation 4 for $20 as a campaign only download. The iconic multiplayer from 2009 is nowhere to be seen and Xbox/PC players have to wait until April 30th to relive the iconic campaign, but why? Well we have the reason....
According to leaker TheGamingRevolution the real reason the multiplayer is absent from the MW2 remaster despite having been done for years now, is because they changed things within the MP and then decided that players might 'not like the changes' they've made to the core gameplay and overall MP experience. However, if that is the case, why not just revert the changes, or better yet, release a beta test with the changes and obtain community feedback? We might like the changes......and if not, simply revert back to the old build of MP from the remaster.
It would literally be like printing money if Activision was to release Modern...
Sony has revealed what the official PS5 controller will look like at retail. The new controller will be called DualSense, instead of what everyone was assuming would be known as the Dualshock 5. Here are some details we know about the controller. The share button has been replaced with the "Create" button. The light bar functionality on the top of the existing Dualshock 4 has been put on each side of the touchpad on the DualSense controller. We're not sure how we feel about this change yet.
here are some pics:
So what do you think of the new controller and it's design for the upcoming Playstation 5? Let us know in the comments below!

What are your thoughts on the upcoming Streets of Rage 4? Are you going to be picking it up when it drops? Do you got a squad of 4 that you'll be rolling with?
Well, I noticed that this place still didn't have any game reviews . And, since I had a game review lying around that I wrote a while back... I thought perhaps I ought to make it the first review to be posted on Revillution! So, here we go:
What is this game?
FTL: Faster than Light is an indie game developed by Subset Studios. The original edition was released on 14th September 2012, and the 'Advanced Edition' was released in April 2014 (as a free expansion pack, adding more mechanics and content). Myself, I got it in December 2014, and since then, I've accumulated 527 hours on it on my Steam account.
The plot of the game is pretty simple. The Galactic Federation is currently fighting a war against a xenophobic rebellion, and it's not going well: the Rebel fleet is rapidly advancing on the...
The Tony Hawks Pro Skater series has been dormant for years if you don't count the 2015 bomb that was Tony Hawks Pro Skater 5. However, fans of the series may have a glimmer of hope to see a new THPS game worthy of the name being brought into the modern age. There are two prototypes rumoured to be making the rounds at Activision of remakes of Tony Hawks Pro Skater and Tony Hawks Pro Skater 2 respectively. These demos/prototypes may be intended for new games, or just as a test, If Activision decides to greenlight these projects, we could see a rebirth of classic Tony Hawk games in a new era. This would be fantastic and would bring old fans back to the series as well as bring new fans to it who may have never enjoyed the awesomeness that was THPS and THPS2 back in 1999 and 2000 respectively.
I remember playing both on my PS1 back in the day and me and my cousin would often try to beat each other's high scores. Now, at nearly 30 years of age, I could sit and do this with my...
Microsoft has just announced that starting in early 2020 Ryu ga Gotoku Studios popular franchise Yakuza will be heading to Xbox and Xbox Game Pass early 2020. We are speculating that it will drop around the same time as Yakuza 3, 4 and 5 remasters are dropping on Playstation 4 physically this February. Yakuza 0, Kiwami and Kiwami 2 are the first three games in the series, chronologically and a great way for new xbox fans to jump in and follow the adventures of Kazuma Kiryu and his friends in japan's crime-filled underworld. It appears that the Yakuza games will be xbox one X enhanced which is fantastic news for those who love gaming in 4K on their xbox one X.

If you are a player for Fortnite you will know about the latest event a few weeks ago which saw Fortnite hurled into a Black Hole leaving all fans of the game wondering what Epic Games had planned next or whether Fortnite would even be coming back.
After around a day of the black hole at the end of Season X, leaks started to appear online and it would seem that the person who allowed the leaks to be pushed online which soon went viral was in actual fact a Fortnite Tester and with them leaking news on Chapter 2 they ruined the suspense that epic had been working for months to increase.
It would seem that Epic Games are now taking things a step forward and g the tester who leaked Chapter 2 before Epic Games were ready to release it themselves will be sued.
A lawsuit that has been filed to a North Carolina court this past week states that Ronald Sykes broke a non-disclosure agreement after testing the game in September. Ronald Sykes leaked information regarding the new map...
With Christmas just around the corner, vBucks gift cards are perfect for that little extra stocking filler for anyone who may be a Fortnite player in your circle of family or friends! It's been a long time coming but it would seem Epic Games have listened and vBucks gift cards will soon be available for purchase!
We all know how frustrating it can be when you are a parent and your child wants something on Fortnite and you have to mess about adding your payment details to their account and then removing them after to prevent them from spending more money on their account through your payment card. Even since gifting came out on Fortnite, it's never really solved the issue as parents would then need to create their own accounts to be able to gift something to their child on the item store to save them from adding their payment details to their child's account, this can be somewhat of a pain if you are a parent that has no interest in Fortnite.
It's no shock to anyone that for quite a while now, the Call of Duty series has been struggling with many people choosing to either not purchase the new releases each year to many complaints about how much the game has changed and how they do not like the microtransactions brought to the game.
It would seem that the latest instalment in the series, Modern Warfare has brought a lot of gamers back to the series and many of which are giving it good reviews, it's been so good that it's the first Call of Duty game in the series since 2011 that has received some pretty good reviews, making it the best-reviewed in 8 years! The last games to get the best-reviewed was Modern Warfare 3.
You can see below the scores for each Call of Duty from 2007 and from these results, you can see just how badly Call of Duty was being received in the last 8 years
COD: Modern Warfare (2019) – 86
COD: Black Ops 4 (2018) – 83
COD: WWII (2017) – 79
COD: Infinite Warfare (2016) – 77
COD: Black Ops 3 (2015) –...
So Naughty Dog has decided to delay the release of The Last of Us part 2 from it's February 21st release date. It seems the developer needs a bit more time to polish the game and make it the best it can be. With that being said, the new release date is May 29th, 2020 The Last of Us 2 was revealed in December of 2016, and finally shown off E3 2018. We didn't get a release date until September 2019. Now Naughty Dog has pushed the release to Spring 2020 with it's new May 29th, 2020 release date.
The last of Us Part 2 is the follow up to the critically acclaimed, aware winning game from Naughty Dog. It seems TLOU 2 might be one of the last games released for Sony's Playstation 4. The Playstation 5 is slated for a Fall/Holiday 2020 release.
Today, the Call of Duty community exploded when news dropped that post launch content, mainly weapons will be earned through Gameplay. Artistic lead of Infinity Ward Joel Emsile stated about a week ago that this would be the case and that Infinity Ward was "not working on a lootbox/supply drop system". Everyone was skeptical but hopeful and cautiously optimistic, it seems we now have confirmation that Joel was telling the truth. It appears that post-launch weapons will be achieved through gameplay and playing the game, not through an RNG slot machine mechanic. Activision has come out to say that there will NEVER be supply drops in Modern Warfare. It would appear that Activision is now taking a new more consumer-friendly approach to MTX.
Taken directly from the activision blog post: Today, let’s address the basics for the in-game economy coming in Modern Warfare.
We are introducing a new Battle Pass system, not a loot box system.
With the end of Season X approaching in Fortnite, Epic Games have managed to so far keep things under tight wrap, not letting any Fortnite fans know exactly what lies ahead and what the seven have planned in the huge live event on Sunday. It would seem though that the Italian App Store may have just leaked not only the title but also that there seems to be a new map coming and some other form of transport as well.
You can click the image below to see exactly what was leaked on the Italian App Store.
As you can see from this image we can clearly see that the title says "Fortnite Chapter 2" and there definitely seems to be a new map and also boats in the water which may indicate the new way of getting onto the new island.
At the moment a Battle Bus allows players to launch onto the Fortnite Island and into a match, the last set of daily challenges that were released have been called 'Last Stop' and we also have received a loading screen with all characters seen waving at the...
Data miners have been at it again, looking into the Fortnite files and finding information and possible leaks as to what could be coming to the game at some point. The most recent find from data miners seems to be the possibility of a Ninja skin coming to Fortnite. With Ninja being the biggest Fortnite streamer in would make sense to see a skin for Ninja come into the game.
With the most recent update on 21st of September which brought the Batman cross-over, data miners have found some code that could hint at a Ninja related items coming to Fortnite. 'NinjaStream1H Pickaxe' was seen in the code which could indicate a Ninja pickaxe maybe? Previously in code data miners have also seen the following code as well ‘CIDTBD_Athena_Commando_M_NinjaStream’.
In season 8 battle pass there was a skin released that Ninja had seen and thought was him. The skin was called Master Key and had a similar hair cut to Ninja and was also wearing a headband similar to what Ninja wears. This looks as...
