DLC set in skyrim for this game would be pretty awesome

hell yeah! snowboarding down the throat of the world would be awesome, and instead of jumping out of a helicopter you could have either paarthunax or odahviing drop you on the top of the mountain, and you could do tricks off of dragons that fly over the course.

Procedurally generated boards? Finally! I can have my Cruel Ornate Snowboard of the Whale!

I'm super stoked and it looks phenomenal but I'm worried that EA haven't mentioned if there is going to be traditional competitive multiplayer.

Yeah, I'm worried about it also.

The game looks amazing, but I'll be disappointed if there isn't the option to go race with some randomers online in real time. The ghost stuff isn't quite the same, especially since I won't have any friends playing to compete with.

Also, Borderlands-esque procedurally generated equipment? Fuck. Yes.

I believe this was covered in the IGN live stream. The only online options that players can do with friends is set a custom global event for friends only. Which means that it will be live real time ghost but just ghost, which does mean you can have as many people as you like so I guess the TNT is going to be nuts. It's pretty much exactly what TrackMania does online.

Feeling pretty good about SSX knowing that EA Canada is working on it.

Ah right. But is it just against friends? No way to play against random people online?

I have never played SSX or any snowboarding games before. This one got me excited.

same here, this looks really cool!

I've always wanted to try the 1080° games back in the day but never got around to it, that new SSX might be my first snowboarding game.

Also, that one race track with the red pipes had to be "inspired" by or be a tribute Mirror's Edge because the color combination of white, blue-ish shadows and the red pipes could've been ripped straight out of that one :)

Road show and EX's all week long :( Sometimes the guys are horrible at a game, but I vastly prefer that to the marketing pitch we get in these faux-Quick Looks.

Posted by rmanthorp

@samcotts: No no you can set up open global events for everyone as well. They also run weekly and daily events for everyone.

wtf? When did snowboards turn into skateboards? How the hell to you do a kickflip with a snowboard??! Have these people actually ridden a snowboard before? Just make a damn Tony Hawk game if that's what you really want. Please give me a snowboard game that can actually make me think I'm snowboarding. There's no snow here! market potential is great!

Posted by Wuddel

Wow. Coonce looks psyched! Sound is messed up though.

Posted by CPEnright

@obidamnkenobi: You've clearly never played an SSX game...

Posted by Barrock

Am I the only one that doesn't like the "Buy Credit Pack" in the bottom right of the menu?

Posted by Wuddel

Wow. I failed in riding snowboard IRL but this looks pretty cool. And the music selection seems awesome.

Edited by Venatio

This game looks so damn awesome, been years since I played any SSX, and I suddenly really want this!

Also, some good choices for EA TRAX on there

Like the way they are handling gear and that you can level up each character. Ironic that this game looked a joke when it was first announced.

Posted by StitchJones

I think I am in love with this game now.

Posted by hello_buster

I know the producer is mic'ed, but it's visually weird that only Ryan and Coonce talk into his. Really threw me off.

Posted by ValiantGrizzly

Coonce is the best.

Posted by Ooame

I don't know about you guys but i'm sold.

Posted by durden77

Oh man. This looks nasty. Like SSX Tricky levels nasty. I just got really exited for this.

*removed* I'm an idiot =)

Posted by vizionblind

the tricky logo is a rip off of the Metallica brand name logo. They are going to get sued

Edited by notha

this is a single player game that has enough multiplayer bells and whistles that i'd actually buy it on pc (as opposed to pirating it), if it was out on it. i thought i was done buying console games for this generation after building my new pc, but dammit i'm gonna have to get this one.

strangely enough, the geotag feature is what has intrigued me most. also, lol armor in a snowboarding game

"let's go to denali, a lot of people die there" response : MUST PLAY

Posted by Osaladin

That wingsuit part was crazy. Also, that dude must have bionic legs.

Double also, I had no issue with sound, maybe because I'm using 5.1?

Posted by Brake

Wow, I've never play and SSX game and I don't really care about snowboarding, but this looks A-mazing!

Posted by CastroCasper

I am really looking forward to this game. While I think a snowboarding game in the vein of the Skate series would be awesome, this still looks pretty great.

Posted by fox01313

I like the avalanche mode of racing impending snowy doom, don't think it will top Amped3 as my favorite snowboarding game but it looks like fun.

Posted by DeeGee

This would be a great Quick Look if the person dev'ing it didn't have the personality of a damp cloth.

Posted by bkbroiler

Their discussion of this on the Bombcast started getting me so excited for this. I've only played Tricky, and I enjoyed the hell out of that but thought that maybe I'd played enough SSX. That is starting to change...

Posted by gustl

This looks like what a Tony Hawk game should be...in the snow...

Posted by Durakh

now that was some awesome terrible obvious marketing blabla at the beginning... fascinating

@obidamnkenobi: lol'd.

edit: After finally seeing the survival mode, I'm not that interested after all. I was expecting a more sim-like game like SKATE was from the few previews I've read instead of the silly arcadiness. That aspect has always turned me away from this series, and I was hoping for more of a departure from it this time around.

Agreed. It seems like they wanted to go a more serious route but bailed on that when people started complaining after they initially unveiled the game.
