Eddie in game :D ...as pre-order DLC :(

#1 Posted by Truckalicious (99 posts) -

Mentioned halfway down the page: http://www.ea.com/ssx

Here's the quote:

Pre-Order SSX today to get exclusive in-game content such as Elite character snowboards, bonus boosts, and even legendary SSX character Eddie Wachowski. The one-and-only Eddie makes his triumphant return to the world of SSX armed with the signature afro and off-beat personality that made him a cult favorite in previous SSX games. With a sense of style and flare only he can deliver, Eddie’s the perfect addition to your roster. Pre-order your copy of SSX today!

If this adds just a little more mid-air breakdancing to the game then I'm all the way for it, I enjoyed Eddie in Tricky even though the character was pretty dumb. Not too happy that he's seemingly tied to the Gamestop release right now, but I imagine they'll have ways to get him in the game later.

So are people up or down on Eddie?

Who?

I dont really care about Eddie, I played a lot more SSX3 than Tricky.

Actually, I can't get myself to care about any of the guys and gals of this series anymore, I used to play Viggo in 3, but that was just 'cause he was supposedly Swedish, he was kinda lame otherwise. Man, he didn't even speak Swedish so what was the point? I think Kaori mostly stopped speaking Japanese in 3 as well, I didn't follow the series from that but they turned her all punk-ish or whatever.

At this point, maybe put Luther in it? playing as a fat bully might be fun.

Oh boy.  
Get ready for a TON of DLC for this one.
Board skins/classic riders/classic tracks/classic music etc. Christ.

I would totally buy Christ as a classic character...and possibly a couple old tracks providing the price ain't too steep

More importantly we will see the return of the one and only DJ MOTHER FUCKING ATOMIKA

There we go, now I'm buying this game. That was the make-or-break for me. Oddly, what you can't tell from me typing, is that there isn't even the slightest trace of sarcasm implied. I'm dead serious. Now I'm fully on board with this game (pardon the pun).

Not going to lie when I found out I pre-ordered the game.

Man, as long as I can play as Moby, I'm perfectly satisfied.

Why would you pay for a DLC snowboarder for this game?

"bonus boosts"? I hope this doesn't mean EA is pulling their FIFA booster pack shit in this SSX game now.

As long as I can play with Kaori and Psymon without pre ordering I'm fine with it.

Not the end of the world. As long as Psymon and Moby are in there all is good.

I'm good with the standard roster.

Kind of wish Jurgen was back in the mix though.

It's hilarious how much of an about-face this game has made since that debut trailer with its bleak gritty bullshit.

#28 Posted by jlev880 (204 posts) -

I was a Mac man in tricky, played Eddie on occasion though. Its a shame that Eddie is preorder, but that's the sleazy direction the industry has decided to go in.

@rmanthorp: Thats not the eddie I remember. And if Bonecracker is not in this game I want nothing to do with it!!!

#30 Edited by SirOptimusPrime (2030 posts) -

I just want, to like, chill out with Moby and listen to DJ Attomica and Snow Patrol.

It's all I ask for from these games.

#31 Posted by TheSouthernDandy (3924 posts) -

Damn. I was hoping it would be this Eddie. 

#32 Posted by Hailinel (25205 posts) -

@TheSouthernDandy: You want Jack Black in SSX?

@Hailinel: As Eddie Riggs yes.
