Sadly I find myself with my pants down, virtually speaking... having lost all of my save games about a month ago I was just building a character back up past lvl10 when the HD went down again
. I've switched back to the original 160GB HD that came with the system so hopefully that will be the end of that. I think I will probably also sign up for PS+ as I just can't take losing everything, having to start from scratch, AGAIN.
Anyway... I have some grinding to do to get a character I can compete with again, but I am looking forward to trying out this update quite a bit!
Man, sorry to hear about all that!
I actually just backed up my hard drive out of fear of this happening since you are the 3rd person I have read this happening to as far as SSX players go.
Just had my first go at 3-2-1 trick it! and WHAT A BLAST!!!!! This gives trick it a whole new dimension, intensity and angle due to the time limit aspect. I did hyper speed on Cournoes Mustache and Fast Forward and what a rush! You basically have to combine race and trick and you cant lag at all within reason. You really have to keep moving and pick and choose your jumps wisely to max your score. The first few runs I was not even finishing in time and getting a DNF, but once you get a feel for how fast you need to go on the drop, it is SO much fun. I even met a new rival/friend along the way as we kept going back and forth on both tracks with nearly every match VERY tight score wise. VERY, VERY impressed so far. Looking forward to trying out the race it portion next!
Also did some freeride last night and that was awesome as well. Gives the drops a whole new vibe totally free of competition, pressure, etc......lots of fun!
I did not have ANY problems seeing other riders (sorry to hear about your troubles here JTStarkiller ) or any other issues for that matter.
