It looked cool at first but then in subsequent videos I was struggling to see where the skill was involved and it just looked like you needed to memorise the courses or have luck, looks fun when you are oot yer nut with friends but not sober & solo.

I booted up the beta (could access the menu at least) and there's 4 difficulty settings. Could get tough depending on those.

Isn't the game similar to "Fall Guys" but with sports?

I believe so, but its not what I thought it was before with the first trailer, they may have rejigged it in response to Fall Guys I feel. OP will know more than me.

I think that's just one aspect. They have a zen mode where you can just explore, smaller events with your friends, and then the giant downhill races with a bunch of peeps.

These both sound cool, I'd like if you can have just your friends and tons of AI as well.

Wingsuit and the paragliding were always lame in Steep. Its the best modern board/skiing game out there. The over the top goofy stuff they are marketing this game as I feel is missing what the main audience is actually looking for. Adding mtb is genius since there is a lot skiiers and snowboarders also mtb in the summer.

Still getting a feel for what control scheme I want to use. Steep for skiing and maybe the new for mtb

Ugh... I saw that you could create your own character, I was like "oh cool", then I start creating a female character, and... Well I guess you can't really? Getting tired of ubisoft SJW-ism. There are 16 haircuts and 13 of them are shaved / super short haircuts. :messenger_downcast_sweat:

Hmmm noticed same, hopefully the final game has a lot more hairstyles and face types as none of the face types look very feminine they all look blokeish

Meh, it's not really bad so far but i'm not having fun either. Not thrilling doing any tricks. No use of the dualsense in the beta so I can't guage that experience. Can't see myself paying for this. I like the idea but it's not moving me right now after about an hour of play. Some screen tear in cutscenes but it's a beta so.
