Thread: The Reason Wip3out makes you a PRO (who agrees with me)

  1. #1

    Cool The Reason Wip3out makes you a PRO (who agrees with me)

    I was thinking about this the other day! I've been playing wipout since number wip3out, and i love it. I missed fusion due to no ps2, but i bought a psp just for wipeout!
    On wip3out, you had to use every craft on every track to get all the golds! i really miss this! i used to be so good with all the crafts, now i am only good with a few! I was so happy how i could get my friend 2 choose my craft and still win every time!

    But yeh, who here agrees with me that wip3out makes you the most PRO at wipeout compared to all other wipeout games?

    I voted yes.

    I have to make myself work on these ships and yes they are very interesting ships. I`m more into Qirex than Icaras, it`s all about balancing stuff and I do think myself as a pilot so I can see the lines.

    I don't think Wip3out makes you the most pro in comparison to all other wipeout games just because you have to use all the crafts to finish the game. There have been so many changes from one title to its successor that you can't really compare any of the titles. There are just too many differences between each game of the series (hyperthrust in W3O, barrel rolls in Pure and Pulse, no shields in the original wipEout,...). These differences have played a great role in keeping the series alive for so many years until today imo.

    I didn't vote in this though, cause I actuallly have finished the game with all crafts and all golds...

    No, after using Assegai constantly Icaras was killing me, never got the hang of it, I didn't have to either the Auto Pilot helped me get Icaras golds. You need more options in your pole I used all craft but that didn't make me any more 'Pro'. Getting really good with one ship is how I like it not spreading my skills across all 8+ teams.

    Cool

    Nope. The original I found tougher. The wall scraping and the pits made W3O very forgiving. And the way W3O forced me to race in different ships really annoyed me, since every time you got used to handling one ship, it was time to change. There's a big difference between AG-SYS and Icaras.
    By the way your "poll" has forced choices - I don't agree but if I vote "No" I'm also saying I never finished the game, which is untrue.

    But by the time you finish it, you might call yourself a pro because wipeout is gruelling! I just don't think it makes you the "most" pro compared to the others.

    there are shields in wipEout, just no eliminations - no damage.

    That's what I meant by saying "no shields", zargz. No eliminations, no energy bar...

    LOL thats an amusing point. And a fair one. But ok how about which Wipeout makes up a candidate for a pro at Wipeout if there was a job going?
