Hey with all this chat I finally booted back up 1080 GC. Its not bad actually, its pretty good. At the time I was playing SSX3 and this game doesn't compare because its totally different. Once you accept that its a straight up racer and less of a skiing simulator you start enjoying it.

 1080 is a spin. 3 x 360 = 1080

Yeah played more of the 1080 GC game. Its tracks, apart from a couple are about a 3rd of the length of SSX 3 tracks. There are only, say 16 or so tracks, but since they are so short, it really feels like an arcade game.

It does some things right, great powdery snow effects that pepper your character, a great sense of speed that SSX never matched, clothes that ruffle in the wind, cool rushing wind sound effects. I got to the second avalanche level and its a little ridiculous, try and try again.

I like the gate challenges the most, its like a slalom but each gate gives you +2 seconds so you have to make it to the end, get all the gates without running out of time.

Open environment? Does that mean we don't have to access ski courses through in game menus?

I guess it's like SSX3 so you can cruise about to gates to start challenges, or just hit up a menu and directly go there.

This would be so neat. A relaxing cruise watching the nice vistas between challenges.

Thats part of what I loved about SSX. In 1080 for instance you have a menu you click on a track and that's it, you play the track. In SSX and this game you have a whole mountain (two in We Ski) and you start on a slope and meander about looking for what you want, you can mess about and practice tricks on the way down deciding what you want to do. Otherwise you can just hit start and select the exact thing you want.

 Aleksander Emelianenko, Fedor's younger brother.

Here you can see Alexander Emelianenko mma highlight. You can even see Fedor being pissed.

Alex is maybe top 10 Heavyweight, would be better than Fedor if he would train more.

Not as much as Fedor, Alex is naturally stronger and bigger than Fedor. If he trained as well as Fedor, he would be number 1 not Fedor. Fedor always said that Alex was more naturally gifted than him.

i like how you can play the same courses at different times of day (if i have understood correctly and you can indeed do that).  it would be even more awesome if you could play in different whether conditions (like in wave race which i really love) but it may be asking for too much

This looks really good.  Surprisingly good in fact.  March is already an insane month as far as what games to buy (there's already like half a dozen games coming out that I want), and now it looks like I have to add this to the list.  Looks like something my family would get a kick out of and I'd probably enjoy it myself.  This may be what I need to balance out MadWorld.
