E3 was cool but much didn't blow me away. What really got me wide-eyed was more info on one of my favorite franchises , the SSX series.
SSX is the Tony Hawk of Snowboarding games and has always been incredibly fun. Initially I was hyped when the new SSX: Deadly Decents was announced but a bit worried. The short trailer didn't have the same ridiculous over-the-top fun flare SSX fans are used to. Instead it had a more serious look. Luckily with the information slowly coming out of the blogs and what was shown at E3 has put a big smile on my face.
Deadly decents does look a bit more armored but the movements and gameplay still has a awesome SSX feel. What they added to the game which is a big step ahead is that they have been using maping data from NASA. "Mountain Man" takes actual lattitude and longitude data to mimic real-life mountains. Also they made a great choice by picking obscure mountains. Instead of picking the big famous ones people always go to (Like Aspen and Taho) they went big and got places in Siberia, Alaska , Himelayas and much more.
The 3 major game modes are Racing, Trick-it and Surviving. Self explanatory especially if you have played the older games. Racing is whoever gets down the mountain fastest, Trick-it is the gory of SSX, doing ridiculous flips and combos for points and surviving is surviving the mountain, avalanches and catastrophes galore.
What was interesting was they changed the control scheme a bit while keeping the old one. The old control sceme with button combinations is still intact, but they also have similiar controls from games like Skate, where you flick the thumb-stick for combos. That sounds super badass , I may be using a combo of both.
The guy also spoke about what "Deadly Decents" really is. Kind of like a boss battle? Not only do you survive through riding the mountin but theres other stuff besides riding a snowboard. Apparently there will be some survivor-man climbing and hiking type stuff. Not too clear on it really >_<
Watching the gameplay really was the best though, seeing the game and being able to tell it is going to have some of the same flare should keep every fan happy.
So SSX fans, how does all of this sound to you? Let us know in comments and check the link below for the video interview.

BONUS AWESOME NEWS! My two favorite characters from the SSX series have been confirmed for Deadly Decents. Mobi and Kaori! <3333333
Just six short weeks away from launch, here is everything you need to know about the reality-defying experience waiting for you in the massive world of SSX. Plus, the exclusive reveal of GeoTags. This is SSX!
EA SPORTS SSX: This is SSX!
SSX is coming Feb 28 to Xbox 360 and PS3
SSX is delayed, but only two weeks to Feb 28, 2012. In the meantime, EA has released a new gameplay video that has the game looking more like the old SSX Tricky than ever before.
When they first announced this game at the VGAs (2010) and called it "Deadly Descents" it looked way too serious. I was decidedly "Not Hyped". Now it's starting to look more and more like Tricky...
If you don't know SSX Tricky was the best SSX, so anything they can do to make this game more like that is worth it. I don't know about this remix of the Tricky song though... you think you better than DJ Run? Sheeeet.

See what the SSX franchise has to offer as pre-order bonus.
SSX Deadly Descents still isn't due till January 2012, but that doesn't stop them from announcing super early pre-orders. First off, we have the divided retailer bonuses. Pre Order from:
Origin- receive Elise’s Elite snowboard and a bonus boost.
Best-Buy - receive Zoe’s Elite snowboard and a bonus boost
Wallmart- receive Kaori’s Elite snowboard and a bonus boost
But that's not it, every pre-order comes with the character Eddie Wachowski, his elite board and a boost!
A long with most of the cast, he got a HUGE makeover.
As excited as I was to hear that there will be some sort of bonus, it also feels pretty lame. Eddie (who is usually a regular character) will be a Legendary Rider, meaning he is un-lockable. Also Legendary Boards were a pain to get, even just for one rider, but that is what kept up a lot of the motivation to play and earn more stuff. Not sure what the bonus boost is, but pre-ordering for an un-lockable character and a super-board that isn't really necessary....feels a bit lackluster.
Well, what do you guys think?

Oh god how I've been waiting...
It's been 3 years since the last SSX game, ( and 7 years since a GOOD one was released in my opinion >_>)
Trailer is pretty generic, except this new batman free-fall wing thing looks pretty sweet. What do you guys think?
Official site here!
Warning drunken rant ahead. I was not sober while taking notes last night during the VGA's. I'm barely sober now. I'm just going to copy over my notes. Read on with care. Don't be a Jimmy!
Batman Arkham City - Dissapointing pre-rendered trailer.
Elder Scrolls Skyrim 11/11/11 - Pre-rendered bullshit. *Not a Tuesday.
Kratos IS official in Mortal Kombat. Pre-rendered trailer didn't show shit.
Thor game announced = Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.
Cliffy B backed out of his appearance at the last second. If he was going to make a Kinect announcement for Gears of War 3, I think he realized this may have not been the place. *There was no Kinect or Move talk at all during the VGA's.
Gran Turismo 5 - My Chemical Romance performance was the epitome of that game. Reh-tard!
Mass Effect 3 - Pre-rendered bullshit again. We are however, going to Earth. Holiday 2011.
Call of Duty Black Ops = Best Shooter - translates to bullshit. There must be a thousand videos on youtube of people complaining about how terrible it is.
Resistance 3 = Irrelevant. 9/06/2011
Prototype 2 - 2012 = Negative. The people don't care about 2012 bullshit right now. Prototype was a game that dropped in retail just as fast as Kane and Lynch 2. I couldn't even give my copy away.
Insane from Guillermo del Toro. Release date 2013?! WTF seriously? We're gonna hold you to it Guillermo del Toro, when this game never comes out. To Schmidt.
SSX Deadly Decent. Cinderkin and BatRastered were creaming their pants. I don't know why.
John Marston IS NOT the character of the year. They give it to the nuab from COD. To make things worse Spike sucks off Neil Patrick Harris center stage and give him best voice actor for Spider-Man Shattered Dimensions. A game nobody played and nobody will EVER remember for having Neil Patrick Harris in it.
Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception Release date 11/01/2011. Sold!
