Can you post some of the other outfits you got for Elise ? ;P
I cant wait to see them :woot
If you cant post them, you can just say what they look like :)

Sat Mar 03, 2007 4:02 am

Well I *think* I've seen a couple..
There's the red top, yellow pants one from Tricky and there's the white top and black (with some red on the bottom) pants from SSX3. :)
EDIT: and there's this yellow one

Sat Mar 03, 2007 5:53 am

Yeah, I've got the orange/brown one, the ssx 3 costume and the ssx tricky costume. I'm not sure how to unlock the last one. :shrug

Here are all the Uber tricks I've managed to unlock so far after looking for tokens the rest of the night some of them are pretty cool.

I also posted a Slalom Tutorial vid for the board over at Gamefaqs, seems like they're more into the game than we are.

That should give you an idea of how hard slalom is. That's it for me tonight - I'm going to bed! :D

Okay, Thanks Mwa! and Gondee :cheers
I think the SSX 3 outfit looks better now than it did in SSX 3, it has better colors and the hair suits more.
I actually didnt want the SSX Tricky outfit, to be in Blur :heh It was kinda old fashioned...
But i hope that the outfit we havent seen yet is the outfit from OT, it looked amazing with the hootie and leather belt... ;P
I actually really like the new outfit for Blur (the one with the red/orange fur jacket, and yellow pants). I like the belt, it looks superstar-ish :heh
And the jacket was something i could always imagine Elise in. And she wears it perfectly. :woot
I werent fan of the yellow pants in the start, but now im more used to it...and kinda thinking that it looks good.. ^^

"Proud Powder" and "Spring Break"...what do they look like?

Sat Mar 03, 2007 3:26 pm

Proud Powder is "son of a birch"(just with a new name)...And Spring Break is just "hot dam"....Its all the same, just with new names...ALL the tracks are returning tracks... :|

I never played On Tour, so I didn't know what either track looked like.

Sat Mar 03, 2007 4:04 pm

Oooh okay :heh
Son of a Birch(proud powder) is basically just alot of trees, imagine you are in a big forest with snow, bumbs and christmas trees :heh (only like..5 big jumbs)....Hot Dam(Spring Break) is like...Well it looks like a working place where you cut trees and build houses...Hot Dam(Spring Break) is mostly known for its amazing rails... :) You can rail on unfinished houses, and on mashinecars...Really cool :rolleyes

Sat Mar 03, 2007 4:29 pm

The Ubers are looking fantastic. I dusted off On Tour last night (such is my desire for some new SSX) and played for a while - so I've probably played about 2 hours total on the game now... ;P

I forgot how stupid the Monsters are so it's fantastic to see the awesome Ubers are looking great in Blur (especially the Nutcracker, one of my faves).

Thanks tons for the vids. :)

Sat Mar 03, 2007 4:43 pm

the ubers aren't bad considering they fixed the monster cam but i do hope that fro the next ssx game they bring back the crazy ubers from ssx3...those ubers were so much better.

Sat Mar 03, 2007 5:05 pm

They DO have rail ubers in the game, someone on gamefaqs posted it and it's true:

http://www.merqurycity.com/ssxblur/videos/railuber.wmv (855K)

That's done by doing the Z motion on the wiimote when you're on a rail and able to do Ubers. I couldn't get any of the other ones to work, so i'm not sure if that's the only one.

Sat Mar 03, 2007 6:06 pm

Thanks gondee, downloading now..
I've been thinking.. Elise's yellow outfit reminds me a lot of a Kaori outfit from Tricky.. Sweet Sunshine or something? I dunno, maybe it's just the colours.

Sat Mar 03, 2007 9:32 pm

Doesn't Blur have any new courses at all? The only new thing I noticed was the beginning of Kick Doubt. It does seem pretty dull to me. Does the controller make up for it?

I was looking at the Blur media and I saw this:

I got scared for a moment, as I thought you had already found wormholes in Blur. They probably got it right this time, though. Have you checked for rail glitch, tapping trick, smurphy, fast boardpress, etc, godnee?

Sat Mar 03, 2007 10:08 pm

No new courses, just redecorated old ones.

That folder is for your videos dude, the ones you sent to EA to show them the wormholes in the OT and 3 courses. :poke

Have you checked for rail glitch, tapping trick, smurphy, fast boardpress, etc, godnee?

I dunno, I'll check on them. There's no tapping since the Wiimote controls flips and spins and the A button does the trick correction and you can only push it once. All things considered, the game is pretty simplistic, I doubt this stuff is in there, since there's barely even a combo system.

EDIT: No Rail trick, the bonus goes up to 193K after a 300m rail but the bonus resets once you do a trick.

Sat Mar 03, 2007 11:52 pm

Man, i'm having a hard time pulling off ubers. Sometimes i can, sometimes i do it seemingly perfect and it just doesn't work.

Sun Mar 04, 2007 12:30 am

Remember to use your ARM, not your wrist - keep your Wiimote perfectly parallel to the ground.

The best ones are the loop and the heart to start off with. Later, the M shape, the two vertical Z's and the infinity symbol looking one are best.

Sun Mar 04, 2007 1:17 am

GrimReaper on GAF got the circle to work for rail ubers as well.

Mon Mar 05, 2007 1:16 am

Thanks for all the info and vids so far Gondee :cheers I want to play this thing so bad I am going crazy :woot

Tue Mar 06, 2007 4:40 am

Well, if the cheat codes are right, not all the characters have the same number of outfits. It looks like Felix, Maya, Griff and 1 or 2 others only have ONE outfit.

Thu Mar 08, 2007 7:18 am

Gondee, how do you feel about removal of NPCs? Better or worse ? I found NPCs to be one of OT's good additions to the series and I hope that the only reason they were removed from Blur is the fact that EA recycled some of the tracks that didn't have NPCs. I hope EA will bring back an improved version of them in SSX5.

Are the areas between the tracks back? I guess I'm still the only person who absolutely loves those :D .
