I'm hearing different places yet they all look similar. It's evident that the locations will play differently but SSX is as much a gameplay treat as it is a visual one. I hope the monochromatic footage of the game is simply the result of tactful video editing (I'm sure they don't won't to show their whole hand).

Yup, this video just goes to show how little identity each course has. When he listed off the next 3 tracks that are going to be shown in the next vid, i genuinely couldnt tell the difference. Everything looks the same....boring.

That says so much more about you than it does the game. I can't wait to see the next three, there's plenty of variation as far as I'm concerned. People keep moaning about the lack of man-made objects as though SSX3 wasn't mostly natural mountain or something. Merqury City and Tokyo Megaplex were a tiny, tiny part of what made SSX fantastic.

SSX tricky is what made SSX fantastic imo, nothing else. And you only need eyes to see there is very little to identify each track. One snowy mountain looks identical to the last, and one icey mountain is the same as the last. Just plain boring. Hell, even the VERY small hints of colour is exactly the same across each track. Unless they really open up a can of awesome between now and release there is no way i will be picking this up. Which sucks because i used to love SSX.

About the game


What's up?
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Turns out everyone on that island had to survive lara from murdering them with an AK47. From fragile student, to trained military killing machine in next to no time. (10 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite What was this survival aspect they were meant to be pushing? I was under the impression from the devs that you had to, you know, do stuff to survive (12 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @Sdarts: Hated the first one, couldn't be arsed with the second. Wasn't Tomb Raider, or at least what I remembered it to be most memorable for. (12 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Sdarts: already started. Already noticing dialogue changes. (1 Hour ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @KORNdog: Yeah, really great story. Also, make sure to replay a second time, the enhanced edition has much more elements and story for the second playthrough. It's worth it. (1 Hour ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Quite frankly, I'm excited for the StarCraft Remaster. I haven't played the original in years, and even though my brother has the CDs - and DLCs - it's very old game design wise. (2 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog That oxenfree story is going to be sticking with me for a while. Damn... (2 Hours ago)
