ssx3 was the last game i liked (alot)

this new game tho is well timed.... i have just finished GTA4 (my reason for buying a 360) and so i was looking for something else to play (in between bouts of NHL09 addiction)

Just coz you don't understand it
Doesn't mean it makes no sense!

First, don't buy a PS3. I have one and it collects dust now. I will not be buying anymore games for it. Ever

Second, I've been waiting for a snowboarding game since the amped series. Sure amped 3 wasn't as good as amped 2 but it was still fun. SSX was just too ADHD for me. I can handle being somewhat unrealistic but kicking off your board mid jump having it spin 40 times then magically re-attach in time for a landing is going too far. That game is made for people who don't ride or have the attention span of a goldfish.

I have a word limit on my cynicism

Hey I found SSX entertaining, granted I have ADHD but that doesn't mean anything.... Cut me some slack all I had was a PS2 and that was waht was available to me as a snowboarding game. Now I have a 360 and Amped 3 which I don't mind either, but really Amped is more cracked out than SSX was, the whole sotry line is just fucking rediculous, its funny to me, but I don't what the makers were thinking, or smoking. The scrapbook making snowgoddess that just came off tour with an eighties hair metal band is a little stange.

Sweet Tap Dancing Baby Jesus Christ It's Dogzira!!!!!! Eh.

*shrug* completely disagree, but... whatever. There's a whole thread about consoles anyways.

Still don't know how I feel about starting a "Shaun White" themed series...

lol hes not making this up though. the game really had tricks where you would dismount from your board and do the hokey pokey in mid air and then strap back in before you hit the ground.

i thought it was fun though. you take it for what it is

i didn't mind the unstrapping of the board for uber tricks..... i mean what was en vogue for the last few years, if not unstrapping at least your trailing leg?

frankly, for the 'true' snowboarding experience, i would be surprised if anyone in here would promote anything above and beyond GOING SNOWBOARDING!!!

video games are games; ie for shits 'n' giggles. live it don't simulate it thru yer thumbs yo!

I just can't wait for the new Shaun White to come out cause i personally wasn't a big fan of the whole unstrapping thing...to unrealistic. Kind of like the Tony Hawks for skating, I loved Skate though, just thought it was a looot better cause it was more real, but thats my opinion.
