Save 30% on SSX This Weekend

on March 17, 2012 11:15 AM

If you were sitting on the fence about EA’s latest snowboard-action romp SSX, now might be the time to jump up and grind that mofo. Effective now and ending this Tuesday, Gamestop and Origin are selling this bad boy for $39.99. However, if a thirty percent price cut isn’t enough to sway your decision and you didn’t check out Chad’s review earlier, now would be a good time to do so.

Especially nostalgic fans who loved competing with their friends in the original SSX games will want to pay special attention. Chad says “For a certainty this is a great game and a worthy ‘reboot’ of the franchise that has been missing for many years,” though he has some misgivings about the multiplayer modes — most notably, the lack of a split-screen option so you can play with your friends in the same room. This feature has, sadly, fallen into the background of many games these days, but its loss is more keenly felt in reboots like this, where the social element was a focal point of the original entries.

Sto Austin is the man. Period. When not saving the world from the next generation of Metal Gears or throwing hadoukens at his detractors, chances are he's writing about someone else doing something similarly epic, possibly whilst smoking a cigar. He enjoys games with a strong emphasis on story, which typically fall into the RPG, Action/Adventure, or Horror genres, though he also has a soft spot for fighting games and has been known, when feeling saucy, to shred on some Guitar Hero or Rock Band. He currently divides his time between Florida and Maine, tromping up and down the East coast according to the whims of fate and fortune.
