Do A Bodacious Grind In OlliOlli2, Out Today

Come see how cool I am.

Because I know what a rad bunch of dudes, dudettes and dudeys you are, I bring news of the release of OlliOlli 2 [official site] on PC. Fully titled 'Welcome to Olliwood' it's the follow-up to 2014's hottest PC skateboarding sim that let you kick-flip on a dinosaur's back. This one features just as many mad locations and odd places to grind, with a bunch of new modes, options and variations as well. They're all laid out in the below launch trailer which my decidedly uncool brain understands roughly 20% of. At most.

A handily delivered press release informs me that these so-called "Manuals" allow you to combo more effectively through a level, in fact making it technically possible to never drop it for the entire time. Just in case you thought you were ever going to actually top those leaderboards, mortal. Those split routes and secret lines will have to be found for 100% completion and experimenting with which banks the most OlliDollah, as I've decided the points shall now be called, will be necessary for making the climb.

Multiplayer is a concept I'm thankfully familiar with and it arrives here in the form of split-screen. There's four game modes available which include a standard race and a hi-score competition. There's a whole bunch of new tricks and mechanics to master, so don't assume previous Ollisperience (I am on a word-inventing hot streak today) will be all it takes to beat your friends.

Despite being the world's least skateboarding man, this actually looks right up my street. I dodged the first one due to its lateness to the mother platform, but I'm all about the simple-to-learn, impossible-to-master platforming challenges OlliOlli made its name with. Likely one for the ol' 360 controller, mind.

Game's £8.24 on Steam at a 25% launch discount for the next week. RPS euro-friends Eurogamer reviewed the Playstation Vita version and gave it their Recommended "this is pretty good" stamp.
