How It's Done: Roll7 mocks our OlliOlli 2 skills live

OlliOlli 2 has a habit of worming its way into your brain, and not just when you're attempting to skate your way over a rollercoaster safely for the billionth time. For example: while playing Metal Gear Solid 5, I couldn't stop thinking about Metal Gear Solid 2: Substance's skateboarding which immediately made me fire up, and fail at, OlliOlli 2 all over again. That's why we're playing the game with developer Roll7 today on How It's Done. We're going to talk about how to make a skateboarding game that's addictive in all the right ways. The show starts at 4:30PM ET/1:30PM PT.
