SSX Goes Retro with Tricky Trailer

EA Sports has released a new trailer for their upcoming game SSX (previously SSX: Deadly Descents) featuring a remixed version of “It’s Tricky” by Run D.M.C. There is no word on whether the song will be in the game, but the trailer is a throwback to SSX Tricky, an earlier title in the series.

[Review] NHL 12

Greetings sports fans!! You know, I have been contributing my writings and opinions for almost a year now, and I’ve noticed one thing…I can’t remember seeing a review done on a sports game, let alone a hockey game. So here we go, here it is, lets drop the puck and get into some hockey action.

Did they accomplish this task? Did EA create another NHL ’94? Do we have hockey gold? Or did they drop the ball and completely miss the mark? Well, read on and find out!
