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?
  • droezelke
    droezelke WD2 is more fun than WD1, but it's so easy. Also, the main quests are 'meh'. WD1 had a more focussed story. The story in WD2 is uninspired. (1 Hour ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke @Sdarts: Don't forget that people are getting sick of CoD, they didn't trust WD anymore after the first. Dishonored 2 got too little PR according to me. (1 Hour ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker quests, which is a goddamn shame, a goddamn shame. For sure they could have come up with some meaningful side quests with at least a story. (2 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker Definitely enjoying FFXV more but I am solely talking about the story missions, some good diversity there. I also really like the Chocobos. Just such a shame that the side quests truly are all fetch (2 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I just think it's a pretty bad sign if a new game can't generate interest on a free weekend. The fact that there are other new games is not a very compelling excuse imo. (4 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Black Ops is also the most popular Call of Duty sub-brand now. (4 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Also, even WD2 and Dishonered 2 sold much less than the previous games in their series. Same for CoD:IW, very few games that got released this Holiday season sold more than their predecessors. (4 Hours ago)
