Once upon a time EA rebooted the SSX series in 2012. You can grab that reboot now on the Xbox 360 for free, provided that you have an Xbox Live Gold account. It's not the best game in the series by any means, but it's st...
November is almost over, which means more free-with-Xbox-Live-Gold games to look at and hopefully remember to download once they're actually available. Throughout December, Xbox One users with a paid subscription can nab Worm...
When just about every major publisher rolled out a game featuring bows at E3 earlier this year, the fad didn't go unnoticed. Many were quick to comment on how in vogue arrow-slinging weaponry has become and for good reason. T...
Electronic Arts has admitted that the attempted Syndicate reboot didn't pay off as intended, but that hasn't stopped the publisher from wanting to bring back more old game names. After all, there's still so many things that i...


During the past week or so, Electronic Arts has been slowly unveiling the first major downloadable content for SSX, piece by piece (literally). Thankfully, most of us missed out on the pre-announcement shenanigans and still g...

It's a very special "New Release Showcase" on Mash Tactics today. King Foom has stepped down to allow Chill with Phil host Philanthr0py to play Electronic Arts' new SSX game. Phil has been looking forward to SSX with tremblin...
The beloved SSX games of the last generation are still among the extreme sports genre's best, even today. So why has it taken this long for a true return to form? Back when EA's reboot of SSX was first unveiled as SSX: Deadly...
Happy Monday, Destructoiders! It's time for another episode of your favorite, semi-regularly-scheduled internet show about video games. On today's show, Max starts us off with some Pokémon Black and White news, while ...
It’s been a long time in the making, but the time has almost come for EA Sports to grace us with another title in arguably the most successful snowboarding series out there. SSX is known for its addictive arcade-style g...
Though the inclusion of an online pass in a game with Electronic Arts' name attached to it does not come as a shock, word that SSX will follow the trend got the usual people riled up. I was prepared to perform the obligatory ...
The new SSX looks pretty damn fantastic, of that there is no denying. Still, Electronic Arts once again doesn't think it's good enough to sell new copies on its own merit, and hopes to force your hand with its favorite skeezy...
The past year has been an interesting one for Sony. The PlayStation 3 finally began to hit its stride, a new portable finally emerged, and an "unauthorized intrusion" resulted in a month-long network outage. That major p...
"Over the course of more than 10 years of making games I have not worked on a single project where our team did not wish, coming down the home stretch, that we could have just a bit more time," writes SSX creative director ...
One of my favorite facets of SSX Tricky was its fusion of audio and gameplay. The game would mute its thumping house/hip-hop soundtrack as you soared off a ramp, leaving only the sound of the air whistling past your rider unt...
EA recently released a "Survive It" trailer for its upcoming SSX game. The new video ends with the news that the title's launch has been pushed back slightly -- it was originally set to release in January 2012, but will now ...
While it seems most people have come back around to SSX after a questionable start, anyone still not feeling this modern take on the series ought to give this new trailer a chance. Prior videos have also shown that this game...
EA brought with them a playable demo of SSX to PAX and Samit Sarkar and Tara Long were there to get their hands-on time with it. They talk about the evolution the title has gone through, contrast and compare the gameplay fro...
If you're at PAX Prime this weekend and you've got reservations about the new SSX, let Electronic Arts ease your mind. A portion of the game's vast mountain ranges is playable at the event in Seattle this week. Do well enough...
Motion comics. Gotta love 'em. They're not really comics and they're not really animated shorts, they're just... whatever this is. It's like the budget was a little over that of what it would cost to create a comic book, but...
Good news, everyone! SSX is fantastic... well at least the pre-alpha demo we were able to play was. All concerns about the game being "Call of Dutified" can be put to rest once and for all. The controls are spot on and the v...
EA has found a great deal of success in its Autolog feature. So much, in fact, that it's implementing that same function into pretty much all of its other games. In it's upcoming SSX reboot, the autolog looks to be in full s...
While I'll be the first to admit that Electronic Arts had me at "snowboarding game," SSX is shaping up quite nicely. In this gamescom trailer, we're told about a few new features. As has been the case with pretty much every ...
The new screenshots for SSX show Psymon's updated look for 2012. This larger-than-life character has been toned down a bit, but to me, his absurdity always truly stemmed from the random things he spouted off. I greatly look f...
Electronic Arts has been fairly quiet over SSX when it comes to online play, and even multiplayer in general. Next month during gamescom, we'll hear about a new online mode for the snowboarding game. This factoid comes to us ...
It's been quite some time since a game worthy of the name SSX hit the market. The series had already been in a bit of a slump before the ghastly SSX Blur, a game poor enough EA didn't even acknowledge it during their behind-c...
Look at Sony, taking a page straight out of Microsoft's book. A partnership with Electronics Arts means PlayStation 3 owners are getting a few nice exclusives, as discussed today during Sony's press conference. SSX will have ...
It sure does feel good to see those striped ramps again. It's been too long. Here's the latest trailer for SSX, with the focus this time set on Mac. Fairly standard choice, as far as returning characters go. We're still look...
Good! That means that I don't have to go and report on it. You can just watch it yourself. I've got enough stuff to do that week. The Orpheum Theater is L.A. is lovely, but it's always a bitch to get out there and leave E3. N...
Another wild SSX developer diary appears, complete with wingsuits and everything. This time, the developers discuss how they take beloved characters and bring them up to date. And yeah, they're still focusing on Elise. Hones...
The new SSX is a ways off; we're talking 2012 here. Apparently EA Sports hasn't even locked in the game cast yet, and it's giving that power to you via an online voting process. Over the next three weeks, fans will vote on th...
Look closely at this latest SSX developer diary and maybe you'll see some gameplay footage. I think at like 16 seconds in there's some gameplay…and then again at 24. Oh, or maybe that's SSX 3. It goes by too fast; har...
Even more SSX news for you to read while simultaneously chugging Mountain Dew and doing backflips. As covered in a recent first-look preview article by GameSpot, the long-awaited next snowboarding title will be releasing in 2...
This developer diary is a great supplement to the recent slew of details on SSX to come out of creative director Todd Batty and Game Informer. As outlined in the text -- and again here, in video form -- the initial teaser tr...
Game Informer has posted an insightful interview with SSX creative director Todd Batty. You hear that, doubters? Let's give this game a chance before we judge too harshly. Batty starts off by saying that the "core statement f...
Amidst our April Fool's shenanigans yesterdays, Electronic Arts released the first developer diary for its upcoming SSX. I was excited -- as I'm a huge fan of the franchise -- to get a first look at the game in action. ...
This week's Jimquisition tackles the outrage that was had when SSX: Deadly Descents was revealed last week. Even if you're not into SSX, it's worth watching because it addresses a more specific issue of gamers getting furiou...
You may have seen the big reveal of SSX: Deadly Descents on the VGAs last night and thought to yourself, "That video was cool, but I wish I had at least three screens and some sort of description of the game." Destructoid to ...
