Hey guys it’s Sam. And do you know Snowboard Supercross, or more simply and commonly referred as, SSX? The greatest snowboarding game series of all time? Consisting of SSX, Tricky, 3, On Tour, and Blur? Perhaps these videos will help tickle your peach if it isn’t tickled already:

Is that better?

If you’re still baffled, SSX is simply one of EA Sports BIG’s greatest creations, with arcade-styled larger-than-life adrenaline lying in your snowboard (or skis, in that matter). And I have some good, if not great, news associated with that series. At the 2011 Spike Video Game Awards, it was announced that a sixth installment will be added to SSX very, very soon. Being developed by EA Canada, and published by EA Sports, the new game has a more realistic turn on real-life snowboarding and vice versa…but in a much, much DARKER tone. A trailer is already out, and from the looks of it, it seems like it is to reach…DEADLY DESCENTS.

See the much more morbid sights of this new game? It’s even been described by websites as looking akin to Call of Duty. And believe me, you can’t NOT know how THAT looks like. But, seriously, this game is called SSX: Deadly Descents, and according to Wikipedia, the PS3 and Xbox 360 are available for this game. If you also enjoy avalanches and wingsuit flying, think about picking this game up.

And I don’t know about you, but it’s becoming a frozen wasteland here in Michigan…well, if you call a wind chill of -13 COLD…
