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...

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...

SSX Gamescom trailer sizzles up the snow

Gamescom trailer for SSX shows ghosts, global events

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 competitive onl...

Latest SSX screenshots are all about Psymon

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 forward to the d...

'Unique' online mode for SSX to be unveiled at gamescom

E3: SSX appears to be well and truly back

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-closed-doors pre...

Spike to live stream EA's E3 event

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. Now I don't have...

New SSX to feature 'iconic exaggeration' art style

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; hard to tell. Eith...
