    Default First day of Wipeout HD Fury

    Finished the download today and played it for at least a few hours. First impression: this is a sexy game! I love the amount of and attention to detail in it.
    Took me a while but I eventually got the hang of the craft. I found that on V-K forwards I could use a turbo on the final corner and get a retarded amount of air and a roll.
    Twice while I was doing this I crashed into some pillars or something and the craft would bounce into the air, facing directly up. Then it would fall down, hit the track and spring straight up again with the barrel-roll-boost sound. It actually bounced up and down like this for quite a while and I took a picture. Has this ever happened to any of you? o-o
    As I said, it happened twice. Weiiird.

    I played one online match and I wasn't sure what to make of it. I was level 1, the other guy level 16, and I completely wiped the floor with him on Venom, Weapons Off. I think he quit at the end, too, so uh. :x
    Anyway, I'm hoping to hone my skills and meet some of you folks online. See you soon.

    Nice you're having fun playing Wipeout. Did you play any other Wipeout games before?
    I for myself have to say I never played any Wipeout before and directly started with HD Fury. It's so much fun and amazing. And until today I couldn't find any similar racing game with such good handling!!

    Have fun collecting the throphies
    Oh, and that particular thing never happened to me but sometimes you will experience some fun & strange stuff. I also sometimes saw funny bugs or cool things. Keeps the game alive IMO, haha.

    Yeah, I agree
    Apart from five minutes of 64 this is my first time playing a WipEout game. The practising is really fun in this game, which you don't get in many others I find. I love doing the same track over and over until the 99 laps run out. XD

    Welcome to the wipeout community.
    From what you're telling it sounds as if you're pretty talented. It took me much more time to figure out this BR on Vineta.
    Have fun with the game and maybe we'll see each other on tracks soon

    Oh, indeed Liod19. When I started playing Wipeout, I barely did barrel rolls since I had to get used to the controls first. But also have to admit that I got the PS3 and Wipeout at the same time so I had to get used to the PS3 in general

    So, respect to you dread, to perform barrel rolls on Vineta K already!!

    Hi and welcome to the zone . I'm one of those who always do funny things although I don't want to. Jumping around like a rabbit, backside grinding or falling of the track where you cant believe it's possible. I rarely win, but I have fun. If you like to race against a stupid behaving pilot, I'll be there . See you on the track.

    a few examples:
