I managed to that in 3 a lot, but only a few times in Tricky. Made me feel super pro.[QUOTE=Tazza;26651892]Who remembers in SSX if you span enough times the trick would come up as "???"[/QUOTE]
Could still be fixed with some decent music. I mean it's pretty death defying, but SSX was always like that, just in a light-hearted way. [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tBQHW5Oo_O8[/media]

So basically, in the new game you just have to get to the bottom without dying. Sounds boring as shit.
Does that mean I can't just press select every time i'm about to crash into a rock?

Sounds even more boring, but isn't at all. C'mon people. We know like, nothing, and it's being made by a team of capable people. Also, I seem to be the only one who thinks that SSX3 was better than Tricky; kind of perfected it. Only thing missing was Run DMC, but even then the soundtrack was better. "Jerk it out" by ceasars palace; just awesome.

SSX 3 would have been a great game had Tricky never been made. The things that made Tricky an awesome game were the great characters with great voice work, flying down inconceivable tracks fighting it out in a Road Rash esque way and doing beastly tricks. SSX 3 was just me going down a gorgeous three tier mountain range alone only accompanied by a DJ and some good tracks, certainly an alright game but entirely flawed when compared to the classic title that i believe Tricky is. Granted it's been years since i played either game, but those are my lasting impressions of those two titles. I may be hasty with my feelings of a trailer but it lacked the color, character, and creativeness that i believe made the SSX series an enjoyable one.
I will be happy with this if it has a great soundtrack, characters, tracks and the same trick system. Does anyone know the release date for this game?

I'm hoping SSX: Deadly Descents will be likewise.
Dissapointing considering SSX3 perfected the franchise and what makes it great, then to finally bring us a new entrace into the series only for it to go all gritty and modern...no thanks. Thats not SSX, I understand franchises need to update and reboot at times, but SSX just isnt SSX without the crazy over the top tracks, physic defying tricks, awesome soundtrack and those eccentric characters we grew to love. And of course, who can forget DJ Atomika. Yes we have only heard a little information and seen a few promo shots, but its very clear already its taking a VERY different path to what makes SSX...SSX. That said, I am interested to see if they can pull off a serious snowboarding game. Im still interested in the game, hell if it looks good ill probably purchase it, just dissapointing it probably wont be bringing back or improving what made the series its own. But if its anything like how the trailer looked, and as its being created by the guys behind the SKATE series...why not just create a new IP? Seems to me the SKATE developers fancied a crack at a snowboard game, and EA came along to slap a brand on it that would sell. I myself would also be happy with just a HD remake of SSX3 with a few online modes added. And the opinion...seems to be shared by many. EA cant be too pleased by the reaction, but how could they not see it coming? Previous SSX's have been based on event organisers transforming mountains into the most insane and entertaining race tracks around. This is about a group conquering new mountains, so indicates the crazy tracks and event theme are a thing of the past. But it is early days. Taken directly from the SSX site, heres what the developers have to say about it. "Redefining the SSX franchise..." "Players will explore the story of a team who seek to be the first to descend the faces of the most treacherous mountain ranges on the planet." "...where a sunlit line is the only survival option when temperatures drop 50 degrees centigrade in the shade. " "In SSX: Deadly Descents the first goal is to survive. The second, in true SSX fashion, is to look good doing it." It sounds VERY different. Redefining the franchise isnt needed after such a long absense from a true SSX successor. Surviving is the first goal and looking good is second? SSX is ALL about looking good and pulling off impossible tricks on impossible tracks. Players will explore a story of a team? Very different and seems to indicate a loss of previous characters and 'arcadeness'. Im not saying this will be a bad game, but this doesnt look or sound like SSX at all. This is Amped 4. Yeah...LONG post i know, but Tricky and 3 were not just my favourite snowboarding games ever, they were some of the best games ive ever played.
I just completed everyone's tricks book except for brodi and luther on tricky in about 2 and a half hours it so much easier on tricky than ssx 1. I hope they take out that wingsuit in the new ssx because it makes me think you wont be able to do any in big jumps.

I been reading the stuff they post on there and they claim that they are listing to the fans typical EA or maybe not we will have to wait for gameplay footage
Tricky & On Tour, oh memories of Pipedream and the insane million dollar skis, can't wait to get back from uni and have a nice long session now :D

[QUOTE=mak13two;26656524]To me SSX3 was better than tricky, i just enjoyed freeriding down the peaks.[/QUOTE] To me SSX3 is slightly easier then tricky but is overall great. Add the voice work+characters from tricky in SSX3 and you have a masterpiece.
