    Default Oncoming quakes - yikes

    Having to watch its inexorable progression toward you when you have no weapon, knowing full well that you're doomed makes them one of the most earth shatteringly depressing things ever in a WipEeout game....

    I love them to bits though

    Hah, you weren't there in the days of Pulse or PurE even (I wasn't on PurE) so welcome to one of the oldest and fan favourite techniques

    I'd forgotten about the ability to fire them backwards in WO3. I guess it's the frequency of having to deal with them now that the AI regularly churns them out and that the flip is so accessible that makes them so much more of a problem.

    p.s. looks like my newness on the forum makes me look a bit of a newbie but I've played every WipEout, other than WipEout 64 and the new PS2 port of Pulse, to death since Psygnosis first put the original one out back when I was supposed to be studying for my degree

    Hi Stever, welcome on board. Can`t wait to see what a Quake looks like coming towards me in HD. Not too often though I hope.

    I just wish I'd found the forum sooner - some of the really helpful advice on here would have made getting some of those HD elite golds a whole lot easier

    Cheers lunar - far too often on eliminator elite

    Nothing quite beats the feeling of beeing in front of a pack of wipers and sending a backwards quake. I love it!

    Leungbok joined this forum last year, questioning is backwards quakes are technique of cheating, lol.
