I've been waiting for that to come out (to see if it actually would come out, not because I want to play it) ever since I heard about it. Made by Green Bay area developer Frozen Codebase, it's a rolly derby game featuring, among others, the Fox Cityz Foxz who are run by an acquaintance of mine. They had a write-up in the newspaper a couple of months back. I thought there was something wrong with it because it was originally scheduled for a 4Q 2010 release. But a month late isn't too bad, I guess.

They don't have much of a track record in games. Their previous games include Sandy Beach (39 rating on metaritic), Zombie Wranglers (49 on metacritic), Elements of Destruction for the 360 (65 rating), and Screwjumper! (40 rating). Just caveat emptor.

Here are some more thoughts from a demented mind in Central Florida:
Caveat: I, too, am acquainted with one of the programmers/developers of Jam City Rollergirls, from various roller derby events.

This was actually originally scheduled to come out on January 10th, but some last minute changes to some intellectual property forced it back into the Nintendo Final Testing queue. I've played this game during several public demos at roller derby events. It's a nice little mix-up of flat-track roller derby with elements of Mario Kart (power-ups, the funky tracks) and even touches of NBA Jam and NFL Blitz (openly punching your opponent, can't go out of bounds, no fouls). There were only five teams available for play the last time I played it (beginning of November in Chicago): Gotham Girls Roller Derby of New York, the Dairyland Dolls of the Mad Rollin Dolls (of Madison, Wisconsin), the Brew City Bruisers (of Milwaukee, Wisconsin), the Rat City Rollergirls (of Seattle, Wisconsin), and the Texecutioners of the (Austin) Texas Rollergirls. You can also create your own skater, and get stars to help build up her attributes like speed, fan appeal, etc. Yes, Metacritic hasn't been too kind to some of their other releases, but I rather liked this one.

The voice of the announcer in the game is that of Robert Stroupe II, better known in the roller derby community as "Dumptruck." He may actually be taking some time off from roller derby to try and break into the voiceover business.

Why yes, I am both a musician and a lawyer. Thanks for asking. :)

A great game, but a tough one ... Just like in the NES and SNES versions, I get lost easily (I'm an idiot, sue me).
