2d ago - Roll7 Creative Director John Ribbins shared a video today from E3 2013 debuting new footage of sidescrolling skate 'em up title OlliOlli for PS Vita below.
To quote: Hello! I'm John, the game designer at Roll7. You may have seen a few snippets about OlliOlli already but as we approach E3 we wanted to go into a bit more depth about the game and let you know where the idea came from.
So, I've had a skateboard since I was about five. In my teens I actually got quite good and was sponsored for a while by Route One. Even now I still like to do the odd kickflip or whatnot (although breaking an arm is much more of a worry than when I was a kid).
I've played and loved all the skateboarding games from 720 and California Games to the more recent Tony Hawk and Skate games, but for me there was always something missing in the newer titles that meant it wasn't quite the same as real skateboarding.... Skateboarding is hard.
While Hawk and Skate are awesome games, the thing that bothered me was that if you did a kickflip, you would always land it except for if you hit the floor while your trick animation was playing.
6d ago - Zen Studios Creative Director Neil Sorens shared a video today of KickBeat on PlayStation Vita strutting its stuff at E3 2013.
To quote: Hey there, Playstation fans. Lots of excitement in the air these days as this year's E3 is shaping up to be one of the most exciting yet.
Not only did we get our first real look at the PlayStation 4 - I'm pre-ordering it already, myself - but Vita got its share of E3 love, too. KickBeat, for one, is playable in the Sony booth!
If this is your first time hearing about KickBeat, introductions are in order. KickBeat is a rhythm action where you fight baddies in time with the music. It's different from other rhythm games in that you play the action itself instead of playing an interface (bars, arrows, button icons, etc.) that's slapped on top of the action.
Enemies come at you from all directions, and you fight them off by pressing the buttons representing those directions at the right time. So let's say an enemy is attacking you from the left.
Hit the Square or left button (or tap the left side of the screen) when he gets close enough, which will match up with a beat from the song, and you'll serve him some kung fu smackdown. Simple enough, right? There are some more advanced controls later on, but you...
