    Theres one in Belmont. But you need your gun licence card. I could of had my Grandfathers rifles/shotguns, but ever since the Port Author Massacre in Tassie back in the 90s, ****ing little turd ex PM John Howard, banned all of them, and crushed all the guns. Thats probably one thing better about the US compared to Aus, the right to defend your self and your property. Here the ****ing cunts get away with anything. Im ****ed if i know how Perth was award the 5th most liveable city on Earth. **** it ill move to Melbourne later on. Since thats the 3rd most liveable city on Earth.

    I will tell you one of my dislikes coming to this straight from hardcoring it on Pure. And its that in WOHD the players are all little mobile immovable objects. What that means, is they are sure-stopping walls, no matter what. You use a boost, if you don't completely clear the other racers, its a waste. Missiles, you shoot three, hit TWO, amazing! right? well nope, cause you hit one in the back end that stops you completely and you have to wait until he gets going again to prepare for another pass.

    same thing with any weapon, cannon, quake. They stop, they become reckoning obstacles that cannot always be avoided. Pure had it beat in that sense cause the vehicles hitboxes were smaller (that or the tracks were roomier). And that's my only real gripe with this game.

    There were sponsors. And you can't deny the way the Pulse DLC was handled was ****tarded.
    Also, since we're looking at PurE, can you tell me exactly the content of each pack? As far as I remember, there were multiple new ships, a lot of new tracks, more music and menu skins, per one pack.
    Pulse, on the other hand... One ship, two track variants, and it's not even of the same track! So if you want Black/White version of a track you have to buy two packs! And then you have two other tracks left alone, gotta buy the two others to get the full set! Great! I'm not mentioning each pack was like 5$, so 20$ for everything (That's the full price for WipEout HD btw), some stuff isn't playable online...
    You can talk to me all you want about PurE, doesn't change the fact that the Pulse DLC was handled in a very shitty way.

    Rachet and Clank Future is a great title. And it wasn't shown that much at E3... There are other things on the list way before I would even talk about removing promotion from R&C and shifting it for HD... Like PAIN (Sue me if you disagree with me, best PSN game of 2008 is non deserving IMHO)

    Ok, this seems to be the right place for some thoughtful criticism.
    Now, I recently replayed the original trilogy, without having played any of the later games at all and yeah, I would consider myself a big fan of the old ones.
    Then, I played the Wipeout HD Demo at my friends PS3 and to be honest, my first impression was that it downright sucks.
    Well, after reading the forum I gave it a few more trys and I noticed the game gave me the same learning process as wipeout 1-3 did.
    I have to say the graphics and the online concept are awesome and the game is a lot of fun.
    Still, I think that after wip3out, the delicacy of the games' physics have not been that great ever since.
    Maybe it got accessible to more people through the simpler physics, people who dont want games to demand a lot of practice. I mean if it's for the sake of the continuation of the franchise, I am happy that there still are great wipeout games.
    But as a Fan of the originals I'd welcome some more of the old spirit in future games.

    Please don't take this as a "dis" or anything, it's just my impressions.

    Tell that to Kanar, and try to beat any of his speedlaps at phantom speed on HD. Easy task normally for a fan used to hardcore gameplay !

    Irrelevant and out of purpose Leung. You can play the easiest game on earth and not reach top 100 if a community is fighting for records.

    And yes, HD gameplay is easier, that's a fact.
    HD gameplay is less interesting... that's not a fact anymore, just a personal feeling

    The out of purpose thing is to say that HD don't demand lot of practice ! Of course it's about records, if it's only to race casually and beat the AI, all wipeouts are easy !!
    HD gameplay is not easier, it's different, and also richest with sideshifts and BRs, that's a fact !!!

    Anyway, it seems that the devs tried to make the game apparently more accessible to newcomers with features like pilot-assist. Also the more powerfull weapons increases the chances of the slower pilots on an online race.

    If it's about the records, they should try and make the leaderboard work once for all. And rethink the br's for future releases, no more endless BR chaining on a track.
    But what really makes HD suck is the fact that Qirex is not what it was in 2097
