This actually might be "your dad's" Japanese TRPG, and for those with a hankering for it, that can be a very good thing.

Well, Gamergate has spilled over into the mainstream media and the coverage appears to be nearly uniformly dreadful. Take " What is Gamergate, and What Does It Say About Gender In Video Games? " by David Konnow as an example.  It appears that the writer has done little to no...

What do these ratings mean?

The EA Big Mountain, The Mountains of all Mountains, EA has brought the SSX franchise to the biggest mountain you've ever seen. You ready to Ride this Baby?

Where can I start on graphics...how about the Mountain itself. This game has some of the most eye-capturing, edge-of-seat graphics I've EVER seen in a video game of this genre, from the beautiful landscapes of snowy peaks and creepy dark mountains, to the deep white valleys of endless frozen fluff. If you have ever played this game you will know that the visuals here were not some two second quicky, but a the whole ten minute frencher. The Mountain is just Amazing looking, with beautiful enivroments to its Dark, Creepy Peak 3. The Events Are Awesome at the Least, with Amazing Tracks and Sweet Backcountry, the Eye-Popping Graphics never cease to amaze.

The Sound is Just Pure Awesomeness! The Soundtrack is very good, and if you dont like some songs, make your own Soundtrack and buy the songs you enjoy to shred to most. And If you dont like the Soundtrack Period, Turn off the Music and Ride to the Sounds of the Big Mountain. The Character Voices are Done very good, Every Character has there own unique style of Voice and that's how it should be right? Plus the Grinding sounds are done Perfect along with the sound of the board on the snow, and Flying through the air, and hitting the ground, you get my Point. Sound is Top-Notch, Nuff Said.

The Gameplay in this game is Unparallel to any other Snowboading game out there. The Gameplay is Freakin AMAZING! I love this game, for a good couple reasons. I like who they aloud to Manually Customize the Character you're using, finally, I can make a Decent outfit for Kaori! I love the No Loading for the Mountain, you wanna Ride from the Summit all the Way to Metro City at Peak 1 without worrying about loading? Your Dream has come true, NO Loading for the WHOLE Mountain, you heard me right. I love the Collectibles you can get, Art, Trading Cards, alittle secret I'm not gonna say, but it's massive how much you can do in this game. SSX 3 has 5 Different Events to do throughout three Peaks: Slopestyle, Race, Super Pipe, Big Air, and Rival Battles. Slopestyle is your basic "Get the most amount of points on this track" kinda thing. Race is Self-Explanatory, Your Race Three Times, and you MUST place in the Top 3 to go on, then at the Final Race, Top 3 get a Medal. Big Air is a Quick 30-40 Second Segment where you get huge Air to get the most amount of Points. Super Pipe gives you a limited amount of time, somewhere around 1-3 Minutes depending on which Peak you're on, and you get the most amount of Points. Rival Battles are when you and your Rival on each Peak will battle in a Race or Slopestyle Event in the Backcountry of that Peak. There are two types of Collectibles, the Type I told you about, the Art and trading cards, that kind of stuff. The Snow Crystals are scattered throughout the Big Mountain. These Snow Crystals give you money, on Peak 1 it's $500, Peak 2 it's $1,000, and Peak 3 it's $2,000. There are a good couple hundred of these things scattered everywhere, around 5-45 in each track. The Gameplay is HUGE and Whenever you play, you'll know what I'm talking about. The Online Play is a Well-Needed thing for SSX, knowing this game would be amazing for it, it's fun, but it's pretty slim as well. Nice try, but It'll be better next time.

What bothered me was that there was no create-a-player in sight, It would've been amazing to see your own personal shredder shred down this hardcore mountain, but alas, no luck here. Another thing is that there's Slim to None Online Play. Listen, if you're gonna put Online on a video game, make it worth the time.

SSX keeps pushing the snowboarding goodness more and more each time, and this game shows that it isn't going to stop anytime soon. So suit up, grab your board, and hail the Mountain.
