    I like the idea of using weapon pick-ups as boost energy. How about have a boost bar, and every time you drop a weapon it gets stored as boost energy?
    The only thing I would like to see is the game to look a bit more gritty, like the original wipeout and 2097. Everything, from the environment to the sound fx should be harsh and a bit dirty. I want the game to sound like I'm at an arcade in the 90s.
    If you have billboards placed above the race track, maybe make them holographic. I always hit billboards in some of the later wipeouts because they placed them right after a jump or bumpy area. In the psone wipeouts the billboards weren't solid and you could just fly through them.

    They said it was going to be a dystopian New York.

    Portal weapon lol.. Like what force wall did for Wipeout 3 but a portal instead.. I know it's hard for me to get off of it I'm sorry.. And since we're talking of mainly disorienting weapons as opposed to destructive ones (which I like that idea very much), perhaps a blackout with an interceptor in the day that can block the sun if applicable for a certain amount of time..

    Yeah they did - well, not actually R8, it was a spoke person for the Designers republic that said this in a video interview, and several of us after seeing that must of all thought "Oh No, not another one"! and requested that they didn't go down that path as there is already far too many bleak and dire looking games , it's been done to death, give us something new.....then R8 went into a sort of damage control, and responded that they weren't going down that direction.
    What we actually get??..who knows.

    What do you mean BOUNCE?
    As in bouncy craft handling as found in the bumpy Fury tracks and craft?.....That's been one of the most annoying aspects of those tracks for me.
    I honestly prefer the HD craft handling, but unless everybody else is using HD craft, you are at a disadvantage with the craft spec's of the Fury ships

    And as for disorientating weapons rather than destructive ones, Please not those Gravity stinger or gravity bombs from Fusion that reverse the craft controls or disable your crafts AG...... they are controller throwing frustrating as they cause much more "race time" damage than any weapon should be allowed to in a racing game.

    Cyberpunk is the idea. A dystopia Neo-Tokyo New York is a great inducer of the densely populated neon city atmosphere. We arn't getting a bleak, grey-brown Fallout 3 city, we are getting A colorful but dirty city. Rundown but still futuristic and new. We are getting a classic WipEout feel as they are the role models.

    Watch from 1.00 to 1.12

    Something that's gradually been disappearing is the hovering/floating detail in all futuristic racers. I don't mean bottoming out completely, I mean that the craft moves vertically as well as left and right depending on its momentum. It adds a realistic feeling to the game and makes it more fun.

    Its probably harder to program cool physics like that with bumps on the track etc. but it makes it more like sega rally and less boring. (To me anyway).

    I would ask the game makers to at least try it and see if it makes gameplay any better.

    I agree, you can see it in the segment starting at 1:13 too, where the craft crests that tall turn and you can really feel it trying to pull away from the track surface. Makes it feel a lot more visceral and less like a slot car that's just shifting left and right.

    Since WO3 I haven't seen any game that was capable of reproducing that 'classic' floatiness/bounce from the first three games. That interplay of the craft's pivot (which is not in the center!), its momentum (that causes the ship to still be pushed forward when entering a curve and adds additional vertical and horizontal movement) and the camera (mainly following the track but also changing its position relative to the ship when it's turning). In retrospective, it seems to be a rather complex combination of several factors. Given the technological capabilities we got today, it seems even more ironic that there hasn't been anything similar for more than 15 years.
