In real life, I am a barely functional snowboarder. I can stay upright for an extended period of time, I can move forward and break as needed MOST of the time. Thanks to the latest backwards compatibility update on the Xbox One I have been reunited with one of my favorite original Xbox games, SSX 3 and I can now be the fantastical snowboarder of my dreams again.
