More SSX footage from E3 2011

The new SSX keeps getting better and better the more I see it especially with all these videos EA Sports has been releasing this week. Kaori is the latest character reveal, so she's back alongside Elise and Mac. We also get to see tunnel levels, which look amazing and the signature SSX gameplay remains intact even with the terrain deformation when you have your tricky meter going at its maximum. I don't care if it is coming out on January, I want to play this now!

DmC Looks Better Now I Guess...

DmC, aka Ninja Theory's Devil May Cry reboot, is at E3 and after all the hate about Dante's new look, I started to get over it after watching the trailer above. Capcom seemed to listen to the complaints and at least we see what to expect out of gameplay this time. Of course, I don't expect it to be as good as past games, but I like the new direction this time around as its own game. Dante's hair goes white when in Devil Trigger mode (whatever its called this time), so there's a response to all the hatred for the character model. Ninja Theory's past action games have been good, but not great, so hopefully DmC is their home run they have been waiting for. Despite all of that, it is still going to be hard to please everyone with this reboot (as if the franchise needed a reboot, but I can see why they want mainstream success), so good luck to Capcom and Ninja Theory trying to prove everyone wrong.
