1080 Snowboarding - Cane and Rinse 305

“Ricky Winterborn!”

As the N64 original turns 20, Leon, Darren, Michiel and Tony wrap up warm for another few runs down the mighty twin peaks of 1080 Snowboarding and 1080 Avalanche. Remarkably, before the first 1080 there had only been a handful of snowboarding videogames created, yet in the five or so years between 1080 and it’s GameCube follow-up, a further 40 such titles were released. Did this fact have an influence on how our panel and correspondents feel about the respective games – and in the wake of them renewing the 1080 Ten Eighty trademark, will Nintendo ever return to the slopes?

Music used in this issue:

1: Vacant Lives by Kenta Nagata
2: Choke by Cauterize

Great show guys.

All the talk of other snowboarding games and wave race made me keen for other podcasts along these lines. It’s like a series of x files where the quirky diversions can be more entertaining than the meatier main features.

I've never played 1080 but I do like a good snowboarding game. I used to love Cool Boarders 2 on the PS1, along with the SSX games from PS2. I'd be really happy if they brought that series to current gen, but I don't know how likely that is given the relatively lukewarm reception to SSX on the PS3 a few years back. I enjoyed it, though.

Tenuous link time, but there was a smashing game on PS1 too called Sled Storm. It was just a racing game but on snowmobiles with tricks etc thrown in the mix. Add a killer soundtrack featuring Rob Zombie and others and it was the perfect game at the perfect time for me. Shame its not on the PS1 classics range as I'd love to give that another spin on Vita.
