The first 10 minutes: Amped 3

The first two Amped games were among my favorite games on the first Xbox. So I was really anticipating this game's release at first, then dreading it when I learned that the gameplay had been simplified a lot. Now that I've spent quite a few hours playing this game I can say that Amped 3 is clearly not as good as the first two games, but it's also not as bad as what I thought it would be. A mixed bag, with some huge mountains (but much slowdowns), great humor (at least if you are into that kind of completely stupid stuff) and a not so deep gameplay.
Update : Second part online.

Amped 3: 10 images

2K Sports released a new bunch of Amped 3-images, unfortunately not in 720p. After playing some SSX3 earlier this week, I've stopped having nightmares about the lack of XBL-support in Amped 3. It could be fun afterall.

Amped 3 trailer

2K Games released this 720p-trailer of Amped 3. Looks great, but I still wake up every morning wondering - why the hell did they skip playable Xbox Live support?

Amped 3: 13 images

2K Games put up the following 13 images of their upcoming Xbox 360 launch title, Amped 3. At least I think it looks wonderful, and I love going out on the hills (in front of the TV) and go snowboarding. But - the lack of any real Xbox Live mode is a big dissapointment.
Update: Video was already up on XY, but at least the images are new.

X05: Amped 3 images

2K Games released these images of Amped 3 during X05, but it looks like no one was paying attention at the time. As a fan of the Amped series I've been very disappointed by the new arcade gameplay of this game, but maybe the game will find a new market now.

X05: Quick impressions

I'm finally back from the X05. I do not have as much videos as originally planned because of a very busy schedule today, but still there should be enough footage to keep my PCs busy with encoding tomorrow. So while I'm working on the videos, here are my quick impressions of the games there.

New Amped 3 trailer

2k Games released this brand new Amped 3 Trailer. I think this video will finally help understanding a bit better how much the game has changed since Amped 2. Can't say I'm happy with these...

    KORNdog @droezelke: whether I sound like a snob or not. It's the truth. The industry is all about playing it safe now. If your after original experiences you have 2 options. Indie or VR (usually also indie) (2 minutes ago)

    droezelke @Tinks: Do you think EA will go back? They have pushed the boundaries. So 1 step back would seem like a 'good thing'. (3 Hours ago)
  • Tinks
    Tinks Agreed. I was referencing Battlefront II really. Hopefully it's not a sign of things to come (3 Hours ago)

    GriftGFX But they haven't stayed consistent. In BF1 the best vanilla SMG is *by far* the hardest to unlock. (14 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Example: the best AR in BF3/4 is the AEK and it's one of the first guns you unlock in both games. (14 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @Tinks: Right.. a lot of their unlocks avoid this issue by putting all the best stuff at the front of the unlock tree. (14 Hours ago)
  • Tinks
    Tinks the unlock rate is bad when it means gaining perk advantages against others with less playtime. (15 Hours ago)
