Go grab SSX for free on Xbox Live if you're a gold member

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 still pretty grea...

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...

"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...

Latest SSX trailer brings the hype

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 is still in th...

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

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 swing and then s...

First-look screens of Moby Jones in SSX look cool

Terrible pun aside, you can now shift your attention to new screenshots of the recurring character Moby Jones. It's really no surprise Moby is in the new SSX, as he's been a staple of the spectacular series since his debut in the first SSX ...

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

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 by way of EA PW...
