I noticed that a lot of you were looking for reviews of the Tony Hawk Ride. I loved it, my kids loved it and I predict that it will be impossible to find right before X-Mas.
Right now I’m giving away a X-Mas Tree. What good is a Christmas Tree without a gift to put under it?
Tony Hawk has a fantastic Gaming peripheral that’s just come on the market. The Tony Hawk Ride behaves like a skateboard would attached to your gaming system.
Activision kindly let me and the kids have a preview of The Ride, and we loved it. In fact, I loved it so much I asked them if I could have one for a friend.
Activision said, “No.”
I said, “but wait, I have blackmail pictures.”
“Oh really?” They said, “Of what?”
“Of Tony Hawk being mean to kids”
“Tony Hawk is a really nice guy, you said so yourself.” Activision sounded worried.
“Okay then, explain this!” And I showed them this picture
“Tony is not sharing, he is hogging the game!” I cried.
They were like, “Uh, Jessica he’s showing the kids how to use the game.”
So the blackmail didn’t work, but the nagging did and I have one extra game for one lucky reader in the US. My review of The Ride is here.
Here are the rules:
Entering this contest is simple, just leave a comment below telling me which gaming console you use: wii, xbox or playstation. Make sure you use a valid email address. Each comment counts as one entry. Pingbacks will also count as an entry, so a link to the contest on your blog could enter you a second time. Entries close at midnight November 24th Pacific Time.
Sometime Wednesday morning I’ll call my Brother, who knows none of you, and ask him to pick a number between 1 and [however many entries there are]. That person will be contacted. If you don’t respond within 24 hours, we’ll pick another winner.
Please note, the blackmail is fictional, but the nagging is not. The folks over at Activision take a ton of crap from me, and I really do want to thank them for being so generous to my readers.
Oh, come on….first? First NEVER gets picked. ;-)
Edited by Jessica to add that it’s a Wii

My family would LOVE to have this sweet game for the XBOX 360, I think it would be so much fun watching my 17 y/o Son show off, my Husband “attempting” to re-creat Tony Hawks mad skills, my 4 y/o Daughter showing them who the REAL Gamer in the house is, and finally me… it will be especially priceless to them when I fall on my behind while attempting to step on the board!
Hope you have a great Thanksgiving!
