Did you guys hve to sign a contract or anything like that after you played the game stating stuff like you won't reveal certain items or anything of the like?

Nope. If we had, we wouldn't be here talking about it. I did ask about it and they said since it's so late in the game cycle, any new stuff rival companies heard about, they wouldn't have enough time to implement it into their game.

Can you count the number of secret characters on one hand? What do the names of the secret characters rhyme with?

Fish fish fish, lol. The secret characters rhyme with "mecret maracters".

How much money would you need to get everything for a character?

Well, assuming the most expensive thing is $50,000 dollars and everything is less than that...I dunno...200K? It is really an unanswerable question.

$200,000, whoa! That'll be ALOT of work, hopefully money is easier to get... I think it is though... Hey, if you're ever short on cash, consider becoming a pro snowboarder! :)

I'm tired of this waiting... You know what sucks, I may not have alot of time to play SSX3 when it comes out! Stupid school!!! Unless you guys can help me w/homework... j/k. :) I have a very misfortunate life when it comes to SSX 3... :(

Whoa, we're almost at 500 posts... What sucks about this is that this topic may be deleted off the MB before SSX 3 comes out if it reaches 500 soon...

I don't really know how the money system works, but seeing how easy it is to make a buck, I'd say it's limited.

There will be lots of Mix Master Mike type characters. That's all I will say. No details!

GOTsomeTEETH's question in another thread got me wondering. When you take the gondola or freeboard between daytime venues and nighttime venues on the peaks, does the encompassing scenery gradually darken from day to night (and vice versa), or does it abruptly switch from one time period to the other?

how many songs are there in the soundtrack. Are the ones at SSX3.com all of them?
From: gondee | Posted: 9/7/2003 12:45:23 AM | Message Detail
Presumably, yeah, all the songs on SSX3.com are the ones on the game.

I don't remember if the money is finite or not. I remember we had a debug cheat that let us get just about any amount - we had it into the millions from what I remember.

Is it just avalanches or are there more natural disasters? In a video I saw at IGN.com someone was fleeing from what looked like a volcano just exploded. Soooo what other types of disasters are in this game? http://streamingmovies.ign.com/ps2/ssx3_much2much_02_free.wmv

I'd safely say that the game takes place in Canada. ;)

Yes, you can outrun/manuver avalanches, but I think it's more luck than skill. They could also get you in the air, depending on where you are. I don't think it does anything to the snow. I'll let the others answer more.

Man, that's a buttload of questions, heheh. I'll try my best, but don't you all realize that when this topic reaches 500 it gets closed? ;-)

where is the game set in (which country)?
Dunno. It never says. I assume it's supposed to be an imaginary place set in no particular country.

CAn you escape avalanches?
If you go reaaally fast or get lucky, sure. They're not guaranteed crashes.

Can you be caught in avalanches while in air?
I assume so. One is caused by crashing into the icy roof of a cave, so they might hit you on the way down.

Do avalanches add another layer of snow to the ground?

No. I think they leave "tracks" though, but I could be wrong.

Are there balance meters for grinds and "manuals"?
Nope, not on the build we had. They seemed a little against it because they didn't want gamers staring at the balance bar instead of the game. Happymachines argued for it, but I would be surprised if it made it in.

Can you view the high scores on a particular run without having to complete the run first?

That was one of the suggestions we made to the programmers. On the build we had, however, no you couldn't.

Is it just avalanches or are there more natural disasters?

I believe avalanches are the only ones. I don't think that was a volcano you saw. If there was, what happens if the characters don't beat it and get caught by lava? Do they die? heheh...

Do the replays now show your times and scores?

That was another of the suggestions we made to the programmers, and we suggested it in "big bold letters." I hope it will make it into the game, we really pushed for it.

will there be plands for difficulty levels for this game?

I assume so. It would be fairly standard.

Do bolt-ons also move around in air just like ends of clothes or hair does?

Yep. Stuff like Nate's lasso does move. The more solid stuff like the jamboxes and pipes don't however.

What was the most insane uber you have ever seen?

Oh man, there are a few that involve like serious spinning and flipping, rotating. They're hard to describe. There are some good ones.

When you buy music, can you also hear it after you've bought it? (kinda like a jukebox?

I'm assuming this will be in the game. With so many songs, why would they leave it out?

wat is the maximum number of ubers done in air in one jump?

With the airtime in this game? 4 or 5 on the bigger jumps.

Can you do a handplant on a normal rail sitting a little bit above the ground?

Yes. You can even shift your weight around to balance better. Grandmort turned this into sort of a "dance", heheh.

When is www.merqurycity.com's ssx 3 section gonna get updated?

Soon, my young padawan, soon. :) We're working on it, plus we might get some exclusive stuff from EA. :)

Could be, I'll have to take a look and let you know what I think.

As far as working on Merqury City, yes we are, that's why I myself haven't been around. The Gravitude Bar is slow right now, but I'm working on getting a brand new forum set up that is going to blow the old one (with those stupid, stupid ads) out of the water. :) It should be done by next weekend. :) Grandmort is also working on the SSX 3 section and we're in the process of creating the SSX 3 Weekend pages, so it's pretty busy, heheh.

While grinding on rails do you still shift 90 degrees when you rotate or do you have control over your rotation? Odd question but it popped up in the back of my mind.

Has EA contacted any of you about some of your suggestions being implemented?

Where do we send tributes to Gondee since he's done such an amazing job answering questions? (Not to put-down the rest of the SSX Weekend people but Gondee has done a freakishly good job responding all the time)

Hey Rob Bucci in that video is the guy we hung out with after playing SSX3! You might remember in the group photo I tagged him as "EA Intern Guy". While we were up there, they were debating whether or not they would do a behind the scenes video, so we told them by all means yes! I remember Katrina told Rob he would be the "host" of the show while we were on the boat trip.

We've been over this. That was released before the first real teaser, Allegra waving at the helicopter, I think. The characters in the pic are wearing SSX 1 clothes, leading me to believe it's some old promotional pic from that game. IGN makes mistakes and puts screenshots in the wrong sequels. Some people argued that it doesn't look like SSX 1, (It's SO Elysium) but it definitly doesn't look like anything in SSX 3.

Yep, I remember that conversation with Rob doing the hosting thing. I was wondering what they were talking about. Awesome! I'll watch the vid in a sec.

Guys, u no wat u need for merqury city ssx3? a first trial run. a movie of the first time u played the game when you bought it. we can see all the mistakes you made. it would be totally fun. also, u could make some movies of cool rail ubers or monster tricks. i could send it to u except i cant get the game on birthday (which is on new year's eve err... day). another cool thing would be to put on some bolt-on menus and show us wat fun bolt-ons look like characters.

Monster Ubers aren't really long Ubers - they're Uber-combos of a sort. Like Uber trick to rail to backflip sort of thing - they have extra bonuses attached to them if you do them right.

I am not gonna read the rest of this that I hav not read, (I dont think anyone will ask these ones)but I have questions, answer them it you want
1: when do you have to block to counterattack?

2: can you rapidly block or attack? (this would be cheap for counter attacks)

3: were their ubers for the ground?

4: were their levels of ubers for rails?

5: did the different boards change your ubers?

6: Did some of the lock ons screw up the ubers? (doing a hand in hand while holding boombox...)

7: Did you guys find the limits to the world? like the line of 2d trees? Or were the limits imposed by the big walls? OR did you wander around, get lost, and never find the end?

8: Did you guys get all the chars? If so were their any more new ones? I dont need to know who, just if there are more, becuase they didnt add much to the default.

9: Were the races longer? (use elysium alps)

10: Could the weather change? I heard that there was many types but could you be in a level in a nice day, then gradually it turn to a snowstorm in that same level?

11: Could you tell me more of the types of snow? I heard there was 30... I know snow, packed snow, ice...

From: gondee | Posted: 9/11/2003 8:15:46 PM | Message Detail
You should read the topic once it's closed. It will help you out instead of asking questions already answered (and that I won't go into as much depth on the second time.)

1: when do you have to block to counterattack?
We don't know if they'll put it in the game. We only suggested it so, I don't know.

2: can you rapidly block or attack? (this would be cheap for counter attacks)
It's pretty much the same speed as last game. There wasn't any noticeable increase.

3: were their ubers for the ground?
I asked - nope.

4: were their levels of ubers for rails?
Not as far as I remember.

5: did the different boards change your ubers?
Good question, but we don't know. There was only one board available when we were there.

6: Did some of the lock ons screw up the ubers? (doing a hand in hand while holding boombox...

Screw them up as in, make them not useable? No. They did make the Ubers look a little strange, but they don't change them.

7: Did you guys find the limits to the world? like the line of 2d trees? Or were the limits imposed by the big walls? OR did you wander around, get lost, and never find the end?

The limits are there, but we didn't go out to find them. The worlds are so ingeniously designed that the limits weren't easy to spot.

8: Did you guys get all the chars? If so were their any more new ones?

We played only with the basic 10. And yes.

9: Were the races longer? (use elysium alps)
Around the same length. Except for the big finale, though.

10: Could the weather change? I heard that there was many types but could you be in a level in a nice day, then gradually it turn to a snowstorm in that same level?
Not sure about that. It's possible. I would probably so.

11: Could you tell me more of the types of snow? I heard there was 30... I know snow, packed snow, ice...
Some were evident - mostly you notice it in the overall effect of skiing, the differences aren't readily apparent by looking at them.
