Cool ideia for a sequel to SSX (2012)

#1 Edited by BPRJCTX (705 posts) -

So, this came to my mind a whille ago, i never actually talked to anyone about it, but i think it would be a pretty cool way to go after the new one.

Look at this first:

Now imagine if the next SSX, took place in an actual frozen world?

Like, a post apocalyptic / new ice age frozen world.

I haven't really thought about what happened or needed to happen, to get to this, but that doesn't really matter, that's not the point.

Imagine ppl living underground for decades, in vaults, kinda like Fallout, and a group of rebel young guys and gals, who were born underground, and never knew about snowboard or any other action sport, tired of staying underground, go outside to explore ( only some ppl are allowed to go outside and explore to gather supplies, Metro 2033 style), and end up finding some old snowboards locked in some kind of underground warehouse (it would be awesome if those old snowboards belonged to the original SSX characters), at first they don't even know what it is, but then they find some old snowboard magazines, or something, and they get interested in it.

So they start sneaking out everyday, to have some fun on the snow, untill someday (years of snowboard later), they get so tired of the same old spots close to home, that they decide to pack up, and go explore this new frozen world.

That's just some kind of backstory, doesn't really need to be in the game, maybe just in the form of an intro or someting.

Now Imagine how crazy that would be.

Imagine sliding down a destroyed street of San Francisco.

Sliding down the remnants of destroyed skyscrapers in New York.

Paris, Russia, Japan, Egipt, Rome, or any other iconic locations you can think of.

Imagine the crazy stuff the SSX team could come up with, with that concept.

The closest example i can give is Motor Storm Apocalypse.

That would give them a way to go back to the crazyness of SSX Tricky Tracks.

Maybe you would find a part of the world where ppl weren't as affected and continued evolving, and you see like crazy futuristic cities.

Maybe you even end up finding and snowboarding in a fallen alien mother ship, with a kick ass hover board, like that one you could get in SSX 3.

Man, possibilities are endeless.

I just wanted to share this with you SSX fans, and see what you think of it.

Would you like to play this SSX game?

I would not be opposed to this, don't need a backstroy though, just let me grind the Eiffel Tower.

came in here to trash whatever idea you had, but a frozen world would be pretty cool. I don't need a back story or anything like that tho. just frozen world and snowboarding everywhere for no reason. videogames.

OUTER SPACE.

ALIENS

Yeah, I kinda like this idea. I'd buy it.

"You got your Fallout in my SSX!"

Thats pretty cool, take my money!

#7 Posted by TaliciaDragonsong (8698 posts) -

Sold.

I hate it when titles make me think OP is retarded, then he comes up with a legitimately cool idea.

I need to be a sarcastic dick dammit!

Also, yes, snowboarding down the chinese wall or something would be badass.

So a sequel to Crysis, the one with icy aliens. 
Nanosuits and snowboards...  
Yes.

@TobbRobb: Good thing you'll get to do just that in this installment of SSX then

#11 Posted by TobbRobb (4415 posts) -

@Jack268: What!? I was already sold on the game, don't make the wait harder!

Oh yeah, imagine a tipped over Eiffel Tower, with all kinds of lines inside and out, with ice and snow, that you could just slide and grind down...

Awesome!!!

HA! Gotcha!!!

But, a back story is needed, even if just to kind of explain the changes to the fans, and give the develpers a mindset to create something different.

I agree with most of the other duders; honestly wasn't expecting a great idea but this sounds freaking awesome!

Nice one OP!

Alright, awesome, guess all i need to do now, is get in contact with EA or Todd Batty, and let 'hem know there's already money on the table.

@BPRJCTX: sounds like Motorstorm Apocalypse. Which was not very good.

#17 Posted by BPRJCTX (705 posts) -

@Mesoian: Yeah, that's why i gave it as an example.

I wouldn't know if it was good or not, cos i didn't play it, but i'm sure the reason you didn't like it, had nothing to do with the concept of racing in a destroyed city, did it?

Conceptually, no. But that game is a very good representation on why simply racing through destroyed areas doesn't necessarily equate fun gameplay.

#19 Posted by BPRJCTX (705 posts) -

@Mesoian: Yes, but we're talkin' about SSX here, and very few games can do fun the way SSX does it.

Add in crazy ass tracks in some of the most iconic locations in the world (with that twist), and i think you have a recipe for awesomeness!!!

And if anything, it would be a way to keep the pseudo realism of this new series, and bring back the crazyness of Tricky, and 3.

Yeah, thanks, i guess, but what's wrong with my title?!

Or is it just something about the internet in general?

If it's that, i can understand your feelings, i don't expect much from ppl omn the internet either, but this Ginat Bomb kinda has a different vibe going on, so i expect more from ppl on this website.

Lots of cool ppl in here.

#21 Posted by TobbRobb (4415 posts) -

@BPRJCTX: Haha, sorry. It was just the combination of not having an avatar, misspelling idea and my complete lack of faith in humanity.

Don't take offense, you seem like a cool duder, I just got a bad first impression. (Pick up an avatar, it really makes a difference).

#22 Edited by Blackout62 (1304 posts) -

Where is your Kickstarter page so that I might invest in this fine idea?

Also I can think of how to make this better: SSX 2142. Best of both worlds.

#23 Posted by BPRJCTX (705 posts) -

@TobbRobb: Lol, about the avatar, i'm just too damn lazy, but maybe i'll do something about that.

But on the misspelling, i'm Portuguese, and to tell you the truth, i never even noticed it untill now, it's not that i don't know the correct way to spell it, obviously i do, it's just that my brain didn't even pick that up, cos that's the portuguese word, so my brain probably just froze over there and mixed the two languages together, haha.

Sometimes it's hard when you know different languages, they can get mixed up very easily, if you're not paying attention.

But i can understand you on the last part, i have also lost faith in ppl.

You guys...


What if it snowed in San Francisco?

#25 Posted by BPRJCTX (705 posts) -

@ahgunsillyo: Huh... You could snowboard down the street?

More like pull off some Mad Trix.

#27 Posted by imjustbettr@yahoo.com (23 posts) -

Sounds like a no brainer huh?

#28 Posted by BPRJCTX (705 posts) -

@ahgunsillyo: Ha ha, good one, i barely remember seeing that game in magazines, but i never played it, i'll go ahead and guess that it probably wasn't any good, right?

But anyway, yes, that's kind of the premise, snowboard anywhere.

#29 Posted by BPRJCTX (705 posts) -

@imjustbettr@yahoo.com: I don't know, it doesn't seem like they want to go back to just fun times.

#30 Posted by TooWalrus (12986 posts) -

Surfing, Snowboarding, Motocross.

#31 Posted by BPRJCTX (705 posts) -

@TooWalrus: Yeah, i was wonderin' about that...

Was that always the meaning of SSX, or is it something they just made up for the story in the game?

#32 Posted by rmanthorp (3700 posts) -

@BPRJCTX: It used to be Snoboarding Super Cross. Which was awesome. That was made up for the "story" and SUUUUUCKS.

@rmanthorp: Oh, i never knew the meaning of SSX before, but i never cared, cos to me, it always meant "AWESOME!!!".

But, it's wierd that they changed it's meaning, just for the forgettable story (if you can even call it a story), they had in the game.

I liked World Tour, actually going through it and doing the events was cool, but the "Story", along with those comics, was crap.

I'm with you on actually liking the World tour but yeah, those story elements and comics were atrocious
