Hey, A New Skating Game! And It Looks Neat!

Twice in the past 15 years, the skating genre has exploded, then imploded just as quickly as developers struggled to do anything new with it. So it's exciting to see OlliOlli, a skating game that's nothing like Tony Hawk or EA's Skate.

Instead, it's got more in common with something like Canabalt; you're controlling a skater who's moving from left to right on a 2D plane, and have to navigate the terrain using tricks (of which there are 120), jumps and combos.

It's out on Vita on January 21.
