    Default A celebration of WipEout - hosted by The Average Gamer, Saturday 23rd March, London

    I've been dying to tell you about this for ages now

    On Saturday 23rd March, The Average Gamer will be hosting the next of their Gaming Den events in East London. This one though will have a major difference - it will be WipEout focused!

    So what can we expect?


    • EVERY SINGLE WipEout game ever playable on native hardware
    • WipEout HD Fury on three enormous HD projectors
    • Plus a host of other retro games as well


    This promises to be an epic event for any WipEout fan, and we plan to provide a fitting celebration for a series that has had a major influence on us all. I expect if anyone brings their handhelds with them that there will be some local multiplayer madness going on too. Also, while unconfirmed at present, they are hoping to invite down as many members of the WipEout team as they can, both past and present, and also they are trying to see if Tim Wright would be able to provide live music for the event.

    However, while this does promise to be one hell of a night, there is unfortunately a very sad note to all of this as well. This will be Ami's final appearance as community manager for WipEout. She has been moved onto Evolution's upcoming PS4 release Driveclub and she will be unable to continue in her role as WipEout community manager as a result of this. So as well as celebrating the series, I would also like the night to be a mark of our appreciation for all that Ami has done for the community, and for us to give her a night to remember it all by. She will of course still remain a member of the community itself, nothing can take that away from her.

    So people, please do your best to make it down to London for what promises to be an amazing night. I look forward to seeing some of you there!

    Details for the event, including address and timings, can be found on The Average Gamer's site here - http://www.theaveragegamer.com/2013/...peout-edition/

    EDIT: Along with a picture of me on the far console getting my arse kicked on Smash Bros Melee

    I don't believe this! I'm staying in East London all of next week and this event falls on the week after. Typical, as I so would have come to this.

    Ahh well, have fun guys and take lots of pics.

    Hi,

    To give you a little taster of what to expect on the 23rd March, before our first gaming den last month, I wanted to test out one of the screens, with a bit of WipEout HD...

    Attachment 7440

    We will have 3 of these screens in the main room, all running HD. I can't wait for you all to see it.
    Personally, it's been quite an adventure for me and WipEout, from first walking into an Electronic Boutique shop in London and buying my first PlayStation game on the 29th Sep 1995, to this very event.
    I've always wanted to play WipEout on the big screen, so here we are

    I hope you all enjoy it.

    Nick

    As I said to Charlie recently, I'm really sorry but I can't make this. Just bad timing for me I'm afraid, I'm weeks away from getting married, and going down to London on an expensive Wipeout mission is relationship suicide.

    It's a great pity because I would love to have been there, and to meet some of you in person. Sorry guys, can't do it. I hope it goes really well, I'm sure it will be a great success. Hats off to the Average gamer for putting it together.
