    Default Something Irritating?

    I've just been watching the HD vids, and it looks delicious- but my only concern is the announcer woman. Is my mind going mad, or does she announce weapons being fired at and around you, rather than the weapons you pick up? It seems strange, and I found it intensely annoying. I don't think I can play a game if all I hear is CANNON, QUAKE, CANNON every two seconds.

    Can someone clear it up for me?

    This was done for almost every WipEout but Fusion.
    You get used to it very quickly; you don't need anyone who tells you your own weapons - you will learn the symbols very fast so there's no need for it.
    Nothing can tell you faster what you've picked up than your eyes anyway.

    It helps a lot if you know there's going to be a bomb or whatever by a voice telling you.

    That could never happen.

    'Something Irritating This Way Comes'? I didn't know Ray Bradbury had written a sequel. It's good that he's still writing at his advanced age. I must look for that one. Irritation is a lot more common than wickedness, and must be counteracted more frequently.

    Here's me thinking that, now that the Utah Saints have re-issued Something Good, Something Irritating was the obvious progression!

    I love that album; found the original CD second-hand at the record shop next to the grocery where I worked at the time. Trance Atlantic Flight is probably my fave track on it.

    I'm pretty sure the wip3out woman also told you what weapon you picked up. She instead said "WARNING!" everytime when something was coming.

    Yes, in W3O, she announced what you picked up, while in WO2, the robot voice announced what was being fired at you.
