Quite shamefully, I only saw Die Hard for the first time two years ago, in December and in a packed movie theatre. It was only then that I could fully appreciate the classic argument that rages about the film. No, not whether Hans Gruber is...

Ubisoft's Steep is scratching my SSX itch

That came out of nowhere! Ubisoft just announced Steep, a new open-world snowboarding/skiing/paragliding/base jumping/skydiving that's giving me serious SSX reboot vibes. Sure, that game lost some of the charm of the older games, ...

2012: Year of the Wingsuit

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. There's been ano...

EA: Syndicate failed, old IP still to be resurrected

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 it could turn in...

Tricky-inspired DLC is coming to SSX next month

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 get the news any...

Defying gravity with SSX

The new SSX game focuses on adrenaline-fueled action and jumping from helicopters. So to demonstrate this, EA Sports decided to gather a few unknowing volunteers and throw them off the top of Battersea Power Station in London.&nb...

Review: SSX

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 Descents, the ...

EA explains what SSX's online pass will entail

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 shrug and go ab...

Shocker: SSX has an online pass

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 business tacti...

Destructoid's most wanted PlayStation 3 games of 2012

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 pothole aside, t...

SSX sees slight delay to late February in North America

"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 Todd Batty in a...

EA developing music-mixing 'Harmony' tool, debuts in SSX

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 until the music ki...

Zoe gets (not really) animated for SSX comic clip

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 just shy of a ...

EA talks 'evolution' of SSX franchise at gamescom

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 visuals style fi...
