News Judgment – OlliOlli Coming To PS3 And PS4

Developer Roll7 has announced that their addicting skating game OlliOlli will be coming to both the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 sometime this year.

The news was announced on the PlayStation Blog, where company employee Simon Bennett said the following:

“We met with Shahid Ahmad and Spencer Low who help run the Strategic Content team at SCEE, and they recommended that we get the game onto PS4 and PS3,” he wrote. “So that’s what we are doing! We have partnered with BlitWorks, based of Barcelona, Spain. We already have a first playable version up and running on the PS4 and a big screen, it’s like our little OlliOlli grew up and got some balls! It really feels amazing on the Dualshock 4 too.

 

“OlliOlli will remain a PS Vita exclusive until summer 2014 and Roll7 is very close to getting the crash bug that some of you have complained about fixed. When the patch is released we’ll bundle in a nice little update that should put a smile on people’s faces too.”

Condemn (OR) Condone:

It’s always a good thing when a game, especially an indie one that was only on a handheld, is able to reach a broader market. OlliOlli is a game that many people love and are still raving about, and now the developers will be able to bring that game to the much bigger console market very soon.

Trailer Judgment -The LEGO The Hobbit Trailer!

The Hobbit is currently being released in three parts in theaters, but they are making a LEGO The Hobbit game that documents the first two parts of the trilogy. The trailer has just been released and showcases the great Lego style and humor mixed with the epic of J.R.R. Tokkien.

LEGO The Hobbit comes out on April 8th for the 3DS, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Vita, Wii U, Xbox 360 and Xbox One. Check out the trailer at the top of this post.

Condemn OR Condone: Though I have never played a Lego game before, I can not imagine the brand blending any better than as it seems to be with Tolkien’s Hobbit series.

Debut Trailer For Demon Gaze Revealed

Demon Gaze is an upcoming RPG for the PlayStation Vita developed by Kadokawa Games. It is a dungeon crawler and takes place thousands of years after the events of Students of the Round, which was created by the same developer. The game now has a debut trailer, showing off all of the zany characters and action contained within.

Although the game doesn’t give *too* much of the gameplay, you can really tell that it has a lot of RPG-style elements with the turn-based battle mechanic that is briefly on display. Check out the trailer below.

Condemn OR Condone:

The trailer has a lot of interesting things going on with the typically crazy-looking characters and setting. The fact that it mentions it being the next era of RPG’s, which sounds freakin’ great, in my opinion. The RPG genre is one that definitely should be more popular, so whenever a new one comes along I get this big stupid grin on my face… and it tends to stay there for a few hours.

Demon Gaze Will Have Disgaea Cameo DLC At Launch

DEMONGAZEDLC
