Looks sweet. The first SSX really stole my heart. Here's hoping, that this will do the same.

a big 'hmmmm' from me so far. those screens are the complete opposite of the vidoc video's we've been seeing.

remember in SS tricky there was a track called "untracked" which was essentially a moderately free-roam mountain to snowboard down. while i liked that as an extra track, i didn't want an entire game centered around it, which is what SSX3 and "on tour" where. and based on these screens, this game is going to be like that too. great if you want a more realistic, single mountain approach to SSX, but where are the bright, colour dyed tracks?

if this is all mountain-ranges with very little to separate them, and with no individual character, then they can shove the game up their ass. seriously, who the hell is the guy in screen 5? how is that even remotely SSX-like? and screen 6 is almost as vomit inducing as the teaser trailer. like something you'd see in COD.

i refuse to get excited about this game until they PROVE it is SSX. the vidocs where a step forward, these screens are 2 steps back imo.

One of us will be disapointed then for sure, because I really want and expect a prettier SSX 3. I best start delivering food to the homeless and volunteering at a shelter, with Karma on my side I'm sure you'll get the short end of the stick :).

I will however agree that generic characters are a no no and if the developers can't create new ones I'd willing accept the old ones (Allegra was my fav). Innovation is only needed when things become repetitive, it's been so long since I've played SSX that they could sell me the same game and I would be none the wiser :).

People keep forgetting that Peak 3 in SSX3 was dark too. Can people actually fucking wait to see a significant portion of the god damn before jumping to absurd assumptions based off of six fucking screens. Fucking hate gamers.

How that wall of nonsense didn't get bullet-timed is beyond me...
Game looks to be good fun, can't wait.

About the game


What's up?
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite It's performance related. Also, people underestimate the point of correct calibration. Having the 3d just off slightly for your eyes can cause bad eye strain, thus leading to nausea. (47 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite I think motion sickness can be alleviated in future to the point where it won't be that much of a deal breaker. I noticed playing on Pro is a hell of a lot more comfortable than the standard PS4. (48 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite And that's entirely possible. I can imagine RE8 being that way. Having to physically aim down iron sights to get a headshot on a zom would be immense, but scary as fuck. (50 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite As good as RE7 was in VR, it could have been even better if they had a control scheme for it that allowed for free hand movement interaction. (51 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Capcom have since said they are setting up a team to focus more on VR stuff, which is promising. (52 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog i'd love for the game to have a combat system as deep as DMC3 or even GOW. with a traversal system that actually uses some skill to land jumps and move around. (52 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Sdarts: i did. i didn't like it. traversal become even more tedious having to grapple gun everywhere due to wide streets and combat still had dudes taking turns to kill you. (54 minutes ago)
