    Alright, I really don't get the scoring system. Here's what just happened, explain it please...

    I let go of a manual a second too soon, cash in my combo right before going off a ledge. The 'you got Silver' thing pops up. I rewind a half second and stay in my combo, do a huge air. I continue down the rest of the run, still in the same combo, still in Super Tricky the whole time. I never crash or rewind again.

    At the end, I got Bronze.

    Okay, watching closer...this time when I cashed in my combo, I got -100k from it. What's going on?

    Oh, I see now. If you crash, end your combo, and rewind...it doesn't let you keep your combo. You go back to 60 tricks, sure...with a -5k score. Not the 300k or whatever you had -5k. Just -5k. That's pretty shitty.

    So, rewinding is useless. If you ever accidentally crash, you might as well just restart. Why is it even in the game? The only possible use for it is undoing duplicated tricks.

    I've had the game for like 3 hours now and haven't played it because I have been futzing around trying to get custom soundtracks set up on the PS3. Currently in the process of copying 8+ gigs of music from a flash drive to my PS3 so I can listen to good music while I play rather than an entire setlist of bands I have never heard of. After hearing that the whole remixing of songs depending on whats happening works with custom soundtracks I definitely was not going to play this with the default music. Then again I am usually disappointed with soundtrack choices in most games. SSX On Tour was the best of the SSX games soundtracks but that is not saying much, but it did have some good stuff.

    Done with the main story. Oh man, those last two races are just ridiculous, and those headlamp races weren't much better. But I think my favorite descents were Everest and Antarctica, lots of fun and a big emphasis on gofast

    I also did some explore mode and realized that I'm not in the OP list. My PSN name is the same as on here, Gunwarrior. I'm gonna go through the op list and send a out a few friend requests.

  • eelektrikeelektrik Registered User regular
    Man, the PS3 is such complete ass for custom soundtracks. SSX lets me choose either an artist, album, genre, or playlist for each type of event. Unfortunately playlists can only have 512 songs. I am wondering if it will work if I take these tracks and change the tags for genre to just Music, and pick that.

    Yeah, I noticed it the first few times I rewind. I really think it's just there for the more difficult maps with death drops.

    I have to wait till next week. Oh well.

    I love everything about this game

    Everything about it is so slick and fucking polished that it's both sexy and aggravating that other games aren't near this level

    Badges with tracking. 599 Geotags to collect. CUSTOMIZABLE, REMIXABLE MUSIC. And you can even choose which albums, artists, playlists, etc. for each mode. That's insane and awesome, as it lets me set the perfect tone.

    I'm currently rolling with Gorillaz during races (since they're pretty heavy on sampling and remixes, I thought it would be a good fit), Kanye West during trick events (just great music to dick around to), Noise for survival (a playlist of a bunch of noisy bands, like White Stripes, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Sex Bob-omb, since I thought it would fit the frantic nature of the courses) and the Cardigans for the menu music (because they're awesome and the kind of calming but upbeat music that menu music should have).

    The moment I did that first run down the dark tunnels (where armor is introduced), just boosting all the way with "Stylo" pulsing in the background, I realized it was one of my most fun gaming moments in ages, and that this is an early contender for GOTY 2012.

    i really like the deadly descents, especially after trying some of them without the gear you are supposed to use. beating the tough course with no armor is a breeze, but i bet the ice pick one is a nightmare without them (i was going off the edges constantly WITH an ice pick). overall they did a good job of making it not feel gimmicky; though the thin air DD was absolutely obnoxious.

    Wait so you can import your own music, not just change the prder of default tracks?

    Is this on both platforms?

    Watching the giantbomb quicklook really makes me want this game.

    Never expected this game to hook me this much, but demo pretty much sold me. There are still some elements of the controls and the physics that occasionally makes the game squirly as shit, but I didn't really expect it to be this fun.

    The Survive stuff is definitely the worst. A narrow track full of trees where I have to go as slow as possible and only make tiny, precise jumps. Yes, that's what I want.

    I'm literally not even paying attention to the Survive levels. After Explore mode opened up after the third World Tour event, I never looked at World Tour again. Fuck that shit, I don't need that in my SSX, just give me mountains to board down!

    if you have music copied to the HDD from a CD, you can use that. otherwise, you should plug in a flash drive or MP3 player and see if the 360 recognizes it. you access the music player through the guide button at any time, and chose from there as well.

    yes! you will be prompted to download a small compatibility patch, and then it should work fine if you have it connected via USB

    There's a great Survive It Global Event on Intrepid that you might like. You can get into the Platinum range after surviving 7500 m (approx 3 runs), pays out over 500k in like 15 hours. To get into Diamond, however, is like 39000 m which is like 15 runs in a row! Insane. Lots of cloudy conditions come in after each successive run. It's awesome.

    You people are filling me with great amounts of shame towards my own (lack of) ability.

    I'm over the damn moon if I get Gold on a Global Event.

    Edit: oh man I love the little remixes it does with your custom playlists. Concept Of Love works incredibly well when there tons of grinds (for obvious reasons).

    Yeah, no kidding. Messed around with this a bit last night after getting my custom soundtrack working(Finally). Its fun, though I miss the course design of say SSX On Tour where it was near impossible to land out of bounds and have to reset, and when you did you still had a chance at placing in the race. In this one the edges of the level are very visible, and giant gaps in the terrain fuck you over as rewinding is useless and you might as well start the event over.

    edit: Also, whats the longest run in this game? I absolutely loved that SSX3 run of all 3 peaks that took like 20+ minutes.

    Holy shit, Africa. Some crazy rollercoaster rails in that one.

    I hope we get an SSX Classics DLC somewhere down the line. Mu nostalgia is being tweaked hard by this game, and I wanna shred some of the old courses again, hopefully made a little larger and with current gen polishes.

    I really need to get better if I'm going to be throwing my scores at you guys, because apparently when I signed up for this I actually signed up to go into score combat with a bunch of unfeeling high score-generating Terminators.
