    Hold L2 near the edges of cliffs to not die.

    Also, I just realized you're the guy who would not stop posting about how much ya hated Mortal Kombat last year. You're uh. Not gonna do that again, right?

    Cause. We get it. S'cool.

    Seriously, all I'm hearing at this point is "abloo bloo this game's too hard" and "people who aren't placing Geotags my way are obviously doing it the wrong way"

    (Protip: There is no wrong way to place Geotags)

    Protip: if all people are going to do is place them in ravines then the idea was a waste of everyone's time.

    But that's not at all where everyone is placing them, I see them all over the track and in the air.

    Also, now get ready for this one, maybe people are hiding them well so you don't just see them and have to hunt for them.

    Speaking of online pass, is not having it going to significantly impact my enjoyment? I have the japanese region one and can't seem to redeem my pass.

    You should be able to create a Japanese PSN account and use the code there. I did that for one game I imported that came with a preorder bonus. It should work on your regular account as well, once you use the code and download everything.

    I did it before, but I realise now that mine is region 3, which Japan is not in. Guess I should go make a hong kong account. At least I can understand chinese better than japanese. :P

    Oh man, the whiteout DD.

    It seems that you really do need a friends list full of SSX'ers to get the most out of this game.

    Yeah, that was the first DD that I wasn't able to do in just 1 or 2 tries.

    I've been playing on PS3 and having a blast, but would love more friends to race and trick against, since only two friends on my list are actually cool people with SSX too.

    So if any of the PS3 players could add me, I'd love to spend hours trying to beat your scores, my PSN name is DeviousRakun!

    RiderNet doesn't really work without friends. All you're really doing is racing on your own unless you participate in the global events.

    Also there is something wrong with grinding trees. The logs that are on the ground on certain courses are far too difficult to grind onto. Considering you can hit a rail at almost right angles and automatically grind, it shouldn't be this hard. But you can go straight at a log, hold down LT, and still bounce off it.

    i'm not sure we're even playing the same game at this point. i have no issues grinding trees with LT, you seem to be doing something wrong.

    To be fair, they can be pretty finicky when you're starting out.

    Although, ghost whistler, you do know that you can add friends of friends on rider net, right? Press select in the menu, go to rivals, scroll to the bottom and there'll be loads of suggestions to add people who are friends of friends playing SSX. I mean, it literally prompts you to do that every time you start the game up.

    I have tons of trouble getting tree's to grind properly, though I'm sure it's more of a skill thing on my part. I wish there was an option to autogrind them like regular rails, it would atleast make me worry less everytime I see one on a jump until I got better at doing it manually. I'd rather have it latch on when I didn't want it to, then not at all when I needed it to.

    I cannot do it at all. Anything else isn't too bad, but trees just don't want to know. Annoying.

    Thanks, but I can't select rivals. It says 'no rivals' and I cannot select it like the other options.

    ghost whistler, maybe it's time to just trade the game in or sell it on ebay or something. You don't see to like what they've done with the franchise, so maybe getting out while the value's still high on the second hand market is a good idea.

    Maybe. But I like to play the game first to see if it improves and to make a rounded decision.

    Their server seems to have gone tits up as well.

    Seeing the words "Perk: Big Head" kind of compelled me to blow 250k on a suit for no reason. Also, it glows, and feels kind of appropriate for Griff.

    Edit: Gunwarrior... just this once, let me keep a spot ahead of you on a race. Just let me have this moment. It might be the only moment I have. Please don't take it away from me.

    Holy shit, that's the first positive thing you've had to say about the game :)

    Hope it's turning around for you. The game can be frustrating at times and I agree with some of your criticism but there is fun to be had as well.

    Also you really need to have people on ridernet to get the full enjoyment out of the game, go ahead and add some people.

    Gunwarrior seems to be driven by a desire to crush our scores, see them driven before him and hear the lamentations of their women.

    I'm joining the Parade of users! Go ahead and add my username to the list: Spunkrake. I'm on x360.

    I'm not what you would call good. I'm barely passable, honestly. But this game is just too much fun not to play. I don't have a whole lot of time for it (New baby!) but what time I do have would, no doubt, be well spent glaring anxiously at a big list of scores to aim for.

    Cheers!

    Haha, just joined a global event with like 80 people and got the high score, putting me in diamond.

    Then like 2 seconds later someone beat my score by a few points and I got booted down to platinum. Oh well, felt good while it lasted.

    Yep. Right after I decided that I wanted to get some SSX in today before Mass Effect 3 enters my life and makes me monogamous for the next month+.

    Dammit, I wanted to race ghost dudes and feel poorly every time I didn't beat them (this occurs most of the time).

    So what happens to my scores if I'm not connected to the EA servers? Do they upload when I connect or are they lost to the ether?

    Because if it's the latter then I now I am going to have the best runs ever.

    PSN being down just kinda reminds me that one day, these kind of games that have such a heavy multiplayer component will just kinda be alright. It's so awesome to go into Global Events to make money, and compete against crazy scores.

    It's just like Demon's/Dark Souls. I can't imagine playing them once the servers are down.

    Playing around with the music stuff. This song is fits in a strange sort of way.



    I might make a proper playlist for it. The music thing is actually pretty awesome. Plus the game needs way more dubstep and DnB.

    Also since PSN is down I tried some of the world tour stuff. It's not too bad.
