View Full Version : So, we did a thing in Liverpool...

1st June 2017, 10:55 AM
Today saw the release of a video from Playstation Europe talking about the history of the Wipeout series. A few weeks back, me and Rob were invited up to Liverpool to take part in this and we were interviewed along with people like Nick Burcombe, Ami Nakajima, Shaun Mooney and John McGlaughlin. Here's a snapshot of what we got up to, and you may notice a rather handsome bastard making his Playstation Europe channel debut at about 1:38 :)


We chatted about a lot more than this so keep your eyes peeled for more! :)

I hope there's a video of you beating the developers in a race, it would be pretty much certain considering your holding number 1 position on a lot of the Betas race leaderboards.

Did Rob happen to mention to the development team just how much he hates barrel rolls ?:lol

I did not, but I did reinstall 2048 on my Vita in an attempt to reignite my interest in it.

Wasn't too long before the barrel rolls and skill cuts killed my interest again. That and the stupid ship selection mechanic, where you could start a race loading and realise you were using the wrong type of ship and have to exit out to the main menu again.

Fortunately, I've long since made my peace with the fact the games no longer play the way they did when I fell in love with it. Come the middle of July it'll be 17 years since one was released that did, so I've let go of the hope it'll ever play that way again.

Despite that, I'm still really proud of my involvement in both the community and on the games I was at Studio Liverpool for. :)

You didn't fancy making a short detour to Stockport to see if I wanted to join in? :lol

On topic its an awesome video, really makes you appreciate how far the franchise has come and the community behind it!

Really enjoyed watching this. The Wipeout Community is a really special thing to be part of. You can see it as you all talk about it. The passion is there, and its awesome.

That was a good watch.

Used to have Wip3out arcade machines in the clubs round my way. Unfortunately at 11 years old I hadn't yet reached that stage of my life, but I've seen pictures of groups of people absolutely sweating their nuts off, completely away with the fairies and trying to play WO :D

As one of the old timers around here, when I saw you included in that video, I cheered! Got an odd look from my co-worker from that! :D
