    Default An apology to anyone who races (or has raced) me recently.

    Ever since the 3.20 System update for the PS3, which removes OtherOS capability, I have not updated my own personal console. Avoiding the discussion of the reasons behind my choice, I'll simply say until I can acquire a second PS3 for $100 or less, I will never again connect to PSN through my own personal console... I can't even try AdHoc Party to play Pure against people.

    As a result, any time that I have been playing WOHD online over the last 3 or 4 months, it has been via a friend's console, leaving me far removed from my normal gaming "comfort zone" at home, as it were.

    Because of this (and other factors/distractions; music, social environment, herb, talking, etc), I have been playing miserably lol I just wanted to throw a shout-out to anyone who may have encountered me on the track and explain my terrible piloting hahaha

    I also am still terrible at the 4 Fury tracks... So with these two things in mind, I offer an advance apology I know I've raced a handful of people from here on the forums, or at least they're names I do recognize. Maybe sometime down the road, things will change again- but until then, I guess I'm back at noob status >_<

    For some strange reason I always feel like taking a sudden toilet break when a FURY track comes up, my bowels make a sudden and considerable move whenever Modesto appears, and I just have to do a dash.
    I also strangely get a sudden craving to drop everything and make a cup of coffee when the Amphesium gets selected.
    And I've lost count on how many times my controller has suddenly needed recharging if Talons gets picked.
    All purely coincidental.


    Actually I wonder what the percentage would be of people who suddenly sighed, OH NO! whenever they saw that the host of a room they were in has changed to a Fury track.

    Well, you wouldn't wanna join my rooms then. What's with all the hate towards fury tracks people? They rock just as well as the HD tracks. For a game which takes it's tracks from 2 previous versions of the game in HD and then again from the same 2 previous titles in FURY - peeps are going on like the FURY tracks were a bane addition

    I never heard anyone complain of Amphiseum, Tech de Ra and Talons on Pulse when I played online - or for Modesto on Pure for that matter. But enter Fury, and it seems anyone who has owned Wipeout HD since its launch, just don't wanna come out of their comfort zones and actually practice the FURY tracks now that they are here It's been almost a year now too.

    If anything, the one track which imo everyone should have a beef with is Metropia Reverse - coz it isn't Metropia White from Pulse - it's different... but No, it's FURY and that's that FURY tracks are so different from HD tracks right? wrong! They are all great tracks, and come from the same titles. Give them a chance, and you'll how awesome they are

    AG-WOLF, mate, there's nothing to forgive. I hope you can find a PS3 for under said amount, and start to rock with us yet once again. Til then, on the boards

    Sod off ACE we all know Talon's Junction should never have gotten past the "twinkle in the milkman's eye" stage.

    Don't worry about it AG-wolf, racing with people we know is what counts, doesn't matter if they're having a bad spell race-wise, we just chase them with a plasma til it comes good

    (off-topic)
    When in a Fury room,
    Talons Junction Fwd/Rev:
    Me:...(says nothing)
    Modesto Heights Fwd/Rev:
    Me:...
    same for The Amphiseum and Tech De Ra.The only thing I'm concerned about is those who I've raced before and lost(yes,I lose races as well,so?)
    (on-topic)
    Well,it's a shame that removing the OtherOS thing caused this. I wish you the best and that when we do Avalon again,maybe the Fury tracks would not be so bad after all...
    PS: Did I race you at least once before?

    I'm one of the people who says "oh no" when Tech De Ra Forward is selected because I suck at it

    I swear at the host when that shitty Modesto Heights track gets selected. Stupid corners in that tunnel, hated it in Pure, same applies in HD. Vertica from Pulse should of taken its spot rightfully so, insanely fast track.

    Nothing to apologies for AG-Wolf. Do what other folks have done when having this same problem, get another PS3 when you have the money or ask ProblemSolver (name suits quite well when you think about it) he has this alternate way of getting into the PSN while still using Linux on the PS3 i think. But i think you cant use that backdoor alternative now because there has been a few more updates since then.

    Yeah it was a specific DNS address I believe, they've long since disabled it :/


    Glad to hear I'm not the only person who groans whenever I see a Fury track selected... I don't mind Amphiseum in either direction (though it doesn't mean I'm good at it by any means), but Modesto, Tech De Ra, and Talon's Junction are all the bane of my existence... I loved Modesto in Pure, but I canNOT navigate the turns in those tunnels to save my life. TdR is alright until I fall off, and then it's just a futile attempt to not explode as I execute BRs everywhere- pretending I have a hope of catching back up. And for some reason, Talon's junction just doesn't do it for me... boring, and people always pull miles ahead of me :/

    Anyway, as it stands, I'll be scarce for a while. School starts back up in a month and a half (wow, that snuck up on me), and at that point I probably won't be on at all. maybe it's time to go back to the older games and improve my laps
