Yeah...so I had totally forgotten about WipEout HD, so imagine my surprise when I was checking out the PlayStation Store the other night.

I downloaded that mutha and started playing last night.

Amazing visuals and, with my 5.1 surround system, I am thoroughly pleased.

I love the Assegai ship, although I miss the old-school model.

After two handhelds, it feels nice to hold a controller in my hand again. Look for me online. I still go by the handle "Northern_Raven."

I am still a new member here and i never really were "away", but im posting more now and in the future, because i can priticipate more with HD.
I dont own a PSP and so i have no motivation anymore in making skins (i made a few though), but with HD, i can race online, show you guys my times (soon i hope lol) and make photos.

I used to lurk here when it was the "wipeout pilots association". I used to quite like the old website too.

I remember reading about people complaining about wip3out and how the physics were all wrong and it was a travisty of a game compared to 2097/XL.

Not far off. I was at the Fusion boards through all the hype and anticipation, imported it from Australia (the first place to get it for some reason) and then...

...well, it was Fusion.

Back for a few months eh.

DT, you just disappeared for a while there; did you just get bored with WipEout and modding?

Life sort of got a bit nuts for a while and I just dropped off the face of the earth for a little while. I couldn't keep up with web life, let alone the duties of modding at that time unfortunately. I resurfaced for Pulse though, after having become a father and, as if that wasn't enough, also achieving pretty huge life (and I guess career) goal of mine.

Made loads of skins for Pulse and loved it until the bugs got to such a point that the mere thought of Wipeout sent me into convulsions. It's taken a while to get over that.

Even when I'm not visibly around though, I often pop in to see what's going on, albeit usually only in the actual WO boards and not the off-topic ones. Only in the last few days have I seen that there were some good discussions and some pretty major events I missed (like Jay's illness). So I've lost out by not being around all the time I guess.
