After three seasons, two motion pictures, and countless blows to the groin, MTV's Jackass is finally coming to video game consoles--namely the PlayStation 2 and PlayStation Portable--with a new title that will let you act out a series of stunts just as brutal as those you've seen on TV. The story goes that director Jeff Tremaine was injured in a prank right before shooting on the new season was set to begin, so you'll have to come in and pick up directing duties to complete the seven episodes of the new season. That means you'll be happily abusing series mainstays like Johnny Knoxville, Steve-O, Chris Pontius, and Wee Man to your heart's content through the 35 stunts that make up the seven virtual episodes contained here.

As we all know by now, those qualities would catapult the crew to MTV fame — and that was only the beginning of their meteoric rise to the top. What followed was a juggernaut of spinoffs, films, tours, merchandising, and red carpet appearances that made superstars of the young men whose death-defying antics left audiences always wanting more.

Fifteen years have passed since MTV's reality show "Jackass" began to influence daring imitators across the nation — despite its popular skull and cross-crutches warning. The show lasted three seasons until it was pulled off the air inafter a campaign — led by former Connecticut U. Senator Joe Lieberman — to stop production.
Recently people have been immersing themselves in the happiness that is coming from Bam Margera's Instagram account, as he pursues his way back into skateboarding. After a rocky few years following his best friend Ryan Dunn's death, it seems that Bam has got his priorities right and is on the straight and narrow.
