For the record, in case anyone else was curious about the acronym Ryan refused to utter, I'm told this game claims the SSX team is a multi-sport deal, and that it stands for "Snowboarding, Surfing, and Motocross", with 'motocross' of course being spelled 'motoX', as if it were 1997 and Xtreme Sportz were still a thing.

10 mins before any actual gameplay....nice. So, is SSX more menus than gameplay, cos that's what i'm getting here

You can get in and out of menus a lot quicker than was shown in the Quick Look. Ryan was just wanting to show off everything and talk about the game, and it is a good bit difficult to talk about it while trying to focus on playing. If you just want run after run after run, you can absolutely do that. :)

Stupid online passes, and even weirder for this game... no multiplayer? Really?

Yeah this surprised me too, it also made me realise that as much as I am interested in this game, I see ZERO need to purchase it day 1 with no multiplayer. And seeing how weak the online pass features are, I'll probably buy it used.... I want to support game companies by buying new but damn this game makes a weak argument for doing so.

This is probably one of the worst Quick Looks I've ever seen done by Giant Bomb.

I mean, for fuck's sake, Ryan does the same goddamn grind and the same goddamn Signature Trick every fucking time for half of this video! Granted, I get it - he's not someone that puts an insubordinate amount of time into this game like many of us do. At the same time, I just don't know if this is the best way to show off SSX to people in terms of what you can do in the game.

This is something I've noticed for a while now and I need to comment on it.

(Just from my own viewing)

I've noticed around 8/10 people who complain about how the giantbomb crew handles things ARE NON-PAYING MEMBERS. I am not an elitist but if you expect to be taken seriously by me and probably a lot of the community, why don't you help put food on the crews table before being a god damn prick to them eh? Yay for the internet I suppose...

Just saying.

Thinking the same thing.

Can't get into the 'every trick has to be a rail slide', and boots-out-of-bindings trick mechanics of SSX games, but not faulting them for it - its SSX's signature style. Everything else is absolutely amazing about this game and think the survival mode is more to my liking. Still hoping for a snowboarding game more the likes of 'Pure', where at least basic mechanics of the sport are recognized and respected, but with all the big mountain asthetics of SSX.

Also, hated the soundtrack as featured on the quicklood. I hope that is modifiable.

A great example of why I think Quick Looks are too long now. Too much fluff, or just too much. Those Vita Quick Looks were all a pretty good length. These 45-minute to an hour standard Quick Looks are killing me. I end up bailing out halfway through so often now.

Also, seriously, after playing the demo and watching this Quick Look, I haven't seen a game recently that just doesn't seem to care about your inputs as much as this one. Never felt like what I did really mattered. Seems the same here. Maybe more so.

Bye Sean Coonce. Since this is last video GB posted involving you, I though it best to say here that I'll miss you. Have fun around the globe.

Ugh. Fuck this quick look! It autoplays inevitably after any video I watch just to taunt me about Coonce not being around any more.

I wish auto wasn't on by default. I've been redirected to this SSX quick look god knows how many times.

I feel like I'm the only one who played SSX Blur:( To be fair, it wasn't a good game, but that's not EA's fault. It was a failure because of the Wii nunchuk and it's unresponsive tech - to this day, it's the only game that's caused me to chuck a controller at a wall. It was just so inconsistent.

That being said, I'm super glad to see SSX is back ...again. Amped 3 may still be the most interesting snowboarder, but man...SSX! WOO!

I picked it up for $5 during that Xbox "countdown to 2014" sale. The lack of split-screen is completely inexcusable. Fun as this is, I wouldn't have paid more than that for it.
