[QUOTE=junker|154;34928014]Just saw the game in the shelves at my local gamestore. :v:[/QUOTE] We're they selling them, or just on display? When I was working at gamestop we displayed games coming out, but we're able to sell them until release even though we had them in store.
Mine got dispached earlier today 1st class, should be here tomorrow.
SSX Tricky had a great soundtrack. I really like the soundtrack for SSX 2012 too.

My copy just got sent in the mail. It'll be here on Friday. OH GOD I CAN'T FUCKING WAIT I NEED MY SSX.
Mine got sent out today from Game. Hoping on tomorrow (unlikely) but if not friday's fine with me too
Thinking of going to Gamestop and preordering tomorrow so I can buy it on friday :v:
This game is indeed challenging.
yeah this trick shit is hard as hell but it's pretty fun
[QUOTE=purpleswag;34933779]yeah this trick shit is hard as hell but it's pretty fun[/QUOTE] Trick It is all about keeping TRICKY and finding a line to maximize the points. Learning the lines are the difficult part.
The race event in the Himalayas where you have to deal with oxygen is SO frustrating. You have to deal with -Staying in first -Hitting the boost button constantly -Doing tricks as much as possible for tricky -Constantly pressing the oxygen button, with the low-oxygen vision effects making it hard to see -Patagonia-like crevasses in the middle of the track and I can't memorize where the shortcut that saves 20 seconds is on the track, or if the jump I'm about to go off of to get more boost is the one that goes right off a cliff that I've died on 15 times. Also, I wish that if you joined a global event, any run you later do on that drop would be counted as a score for that event. I did the Serenity global event with a ton of players and now doing that run in World Tour against Griff I was better by more than 4 million points.

[/QUOTE] I found it easy, not hard to hit RB every 10 seconds.
[QUOTE=Delta616;34935774]I found it easy, not hard to hit RB every 10 seconds.[/QUOTE] It was extremely hard for me to do it when I was trying to do big tricks for Tricky, hold onto the boost button, look for jumps and attempt to remember which ones don't go off cliffs, and not forget to go in the shortcut that Elise always takes and gets 20 seconds ahead of you if you don't. The actual Deadly Descent I did on my first try.
It was hard for me also and then Elisa just disappears on me and ends up like 14 seconds ahead of me. I had it happened 4-5 times in a row and still have no idea which way she goes.
Mine arrived this morning, loving it!
Well, I'm glad There's a custom playlist option for this game, way too much dubstep for me. Also I think I'm on the final slope, really fucking hard.

It's just a little after the end of one of the mid-track crevasses.
I was hoping hard for it to be in my postbox today; sadly not the case. Oh well, it'll be here tomorrow
Bought it today; It's fuckin' amazing.
The final level in the world tour is fucking hard.
The final slope is fucking crazy. Reminds me of the mountain from the grinch that stole christmas.
The slopes where you can fall down on the side are so hard, like the ice one with the ice picks and such for example! Especially since I keep starting over whenever I make a mistake
Should be getting this from lovefilm tommorow hopefully. How's the "import your own music which gets remixed on the fly" thing? Does it actually work as advertised?
I don't need Xbox Live Gold to use Ridernet do I? It ran out a week ago and I like the money to get it after pre-purchasing SSX :(.
Assuming no-one I know is going out tomorrow night (in which case I shall be obliged to join them) I fully intend to play this from 5pm to 3am (with breaks of course - stay healthy kids)
I got my copy today (Europe). It's amazing. The final drop man, I lost some years of my life on that one. :v: Is there a list of FP players yet? Would be fun shredding some slopes with you guys!
There's no specific list as such, but people've been adding others occasionally. I'm ThisIsAntwon on PSN. Maybe we should set up a little list - there must be a good 4-5 people that've added me on PSN and presumably some have the Xbox version too
So, everyone's loving this?
I love when you land in tricky mode and the whole ground does like a wave thing, the tricky remix along with the whole ground smash is amazing.
