damn, why does the game have to come out this week, the very same week I have got to fork out £115 for my car tax :(
I said it's extremely fast, which is cool, but it's hard to tell what's going on sometimes. I also said it seems that I can do tricks just by mashing a bunch of buttons and I get a high score.
And no, my complaint isn't empty. It rotates to the ground, whereas it didn't do that in previous installments, therefore making it easier than previous installments. I don't know how on earth that's "empty." Your statement of "anyone who is capable" is a dick attempt at demeaning anyone who would use it.
My point is that it shouldn't be there, not whether or not you should use it. I think if you leave your board up in the air, you should come down on your head, just like you did in SSX Tricky. Now was Tricky realistic in the slightest? No, not at all.
A "bad decision" in your argument is apparently not crashing, so I don't really see any other bad decisions besides making yourself go the wrong way.
You can't begin an argument by basing yours off of someone else's statements or views that they didn't make and don't have.
But needless to say you'll all go group mentality and disagree with me, because that seems to be the trend.
My point was that it's way too simplified, and I'm comparing it to SSX Tricky. I don't want realism, I want the SSX series. And this game has that. It's just that I think the gravitational pull on the bottom of the board is silly and is too much hand-holding.
On a side-note: I wish Eddie wasn't preorder only. I don't have $60 and I like Eddie...
I like that the trick system has a heavier emphasis on holding tricks for as long as possible in big airs rather than just repeatedly mashing the buttons to do as many tricks in the air as possible.
Ending your combo early?
Over/undershooting a jump?
Getting fewer flips/spins in a jump than the maximum possible?
Running out of boost?
Maybe I didn't play enough and missed something. I mean gold medal high, not record breaking on YouTube high.
And I just played ssx tricky and it will dump you on your head if you don't complete the flip.
I still want the game I just don't like the gravIty hand holding.
And I said that because there's this thing called mob mentality and bandwagon effects, and they happen too often on the Internet and face punch. Like the word stuffing you're doing. I've Posted in here twice and both times someone shoved words in my mouth.
The actual trick landing stuff seems a shitton easier, but I like that. It's more focused on doing well, rather than just not fucking up.
'cept in the deadly descents.
I also fucking love the physics system. You can Land a trick by slamming into a rocky wall as long as you're oriented so your board is parallel with its surface.
The deadly descents look really cool. And that's definitely a Good point about the board thing. I didn't think of it that way, thanks.
My package was just shipped by Amazon, hopefully it gets here before I wake up tomorrow. I wonder if I should install the game to my hard drive.
What system are most of you guys getting it on?
Should I preorder it from Gamestop?
So time to try out this lovefilm thing! Been looking forward to SSX, so I put that on my rental list.. OH BOY IT'S AVAILABLE! I PUT IT AT HIGH PRIORITY SO I SHOULD GET IT S-
I feed on this game. Can't wait till tomorrow.
Honestly the only SSX game I have really played before this was SSX: On Tour, but that game was absolutely awesome.
I think ssx on tour is like the new one in that aspect.
Uh. Jackald. Your mom got those? Yeeeaahhh sounds like porn movies to me.
OH MARGRET THATCHER, RESTRUCTURE BRITAIN'S BALANCE OF PAYMENTS TO FAVOR A SERVICE BASED ECONOMY VIA SUBTLE LEGISLATURE TO UNDERMINE LABOUR, YOU DIRTY GIRL!
Also, on tour had ridiculously easy flips and shit almost as much as the new one.
Hahaha I tried, okay? It sounded reasonable.
Yeah, I noticed that with On Tour. It was just such a drastic change from Tricky to SSX, but I see that there's been a transition.
I'll still buy this, but when it's cheaper so I have money.
Anyone have any tips for the race/trick events? Can't break over 14 million for trick mode, and in race I can only get 2:11.
Use the map as a half pipe and not as a path straight down, go back and forth when possible(losing speed or going backwards is bad because you lose tricky), Don't use boost until tricky.
Stay low, don't go for massive jumps, try and find the quickest path, Try and stay in tricky to have unlimited boost.
Amazon already gave me my preorder code for "Macs Elite Snowboard," hope its cool.
Well the game came out today and this is on second page.
Any verdicts? Or are you all just too busy playing it?
just got home playing now omg holy shit
I did not expect DJ Atomika to be back...
Just picked it up, worth the money indeed.
My god some of the events are hard.
Just picked up my copy, but I have to study a bit more for exams before I can play it. :(
Also, I have no friends who play SSX, so if anyone wants to add me on Xbox Live...
Pre-ordered it, you Americans don't deserve to live.
Fuck you EA, two days left...
I still need to get a new xbox before I can even play the game. I just brought it up from the basement and tried turning it on to see if it worked and it RROD'd.
XBL is "Silverlit" if anyone wants to add me for whatever reason.
Holy SHIT this game is extremely satisfying in every single way... my only gripe with it is that I have no friends that play it. If you're a lonely Facepunch player on the PS3 like me, add Live2bcool. I'll be sure to accept your friend request!
Dumb question, I seem to be having a hard time finding how to play Multiplayer, is there a mode to compete, or is it just beat score and time down mountain through explore and rivals?
I guess it's actually not possible to play the story mode co-op, and it's not possible to play any kind of split screen, is it even possible to race down a mountain while other people are doing it as well, live?
I think the whole scoring better than the others is extremely boring, since i wanna try to knock them off the boards as well etc, like i did with my friends in Tricky..
Just not quite sure if it's worth the money, since the game will probably be dead to me, after the story mode, or how do you guys feel like it is?
Seems like it's not actually possible, this is such a big downer for me, why would they remove a feature that in my own opinion is so important from the game, it really destroys it honestly, just riding random mountains to beat other peoples scores alone seems pretty dull.
2 days til the release in europe.
Also, while in single player, sometimes a random ghost would spawn from a real dude. If I beat him, I would receive 2000 more credits! I was also able to collect some of their geotags too!
