New Korean Roller-Blading MMO gives whole new meaning to the word ‘grind’



Sorry, I just couldn’t resist. I never thought I’d see the day, but it looks like someone thought releasing an MMO loosely based off of Jet Grind Radio would be a good idea. While there are no spray-paint-art-hijinks in this game, the gameplay, graphics, and physics in the upcoming Street Gears are reminiscent of the aforementioned Dreamcast title.

The main difference is in the deeper combo system, which includes inputting on-screen commands to do tricks while grinding and adding new elements like the powerslide. Unfortunately the game is in closed beta right now, and only in France and Germany. The current assumption is that it will be free to play. Perhaps this will be able to enter the pantheon of free MMO’s with decent gameplay?

    Huh… I’d say it’s closer to “clone” than “inspired by”. In fact, if it weren’t for the focus shift from graffiti onto racing, I’d say that Sega had grounds for a lawsuit!

  2. I actually laughed hard when the word grind appeared on screen, imagined it being announced as a feature on all other Korean MMO viedos.

    Battle amazing creatures!
    Wear the armor of the gods!
    Fight… to become the best!
    Team up with friends!

    Needs more freeroaming openworld to mess around with. Then again, I don’t think they have the resources to pull something like that off.

    Why don’t they just make a new Jet Grind Radio game? It HAD the fanbase!!! Instead we get all these other developers trying to make a ‘similar’ styled game, but they just never pull it off.

    This game doesn’t even look that fun o_O;
