    Default New wipeout

    Rumors of a new Wipeout developed by Sega. While they make great games, I have no reason to believe the would do Wipeout justice. The Fzero game was broken badly, despite playing well.

    Yep, saw that like 2 months ago (?) but let's see if it's true or not i wouldn't mind a new one (with no region lobbies on multiplayer too ._.), we have to wait and see

    I don’t know why people keep reporting this nonsense. The original source of this is literally some dude on an obscure discussion board, and his message didn’t even mention WipEout at all.

    There is NO basis for this.

    Guess it's life. And if you dig up a bit (I mean if you want to play the great games that are still available to play and enjoy on multiple platforms), you'll find great challenge on PS4 (Omega), or WO HD/FURY PS3/RPCS3, online crossplay. What did you expect?
    So maybe the money men will see an interest into a new wipeout duh?

    Sure, it costs nothing to talk about it. Unfortunately, that’s not how the video game industry works, otherwise you’d already have another F-Zero game (a much bigger and louder community than us).

    My reaction is rather aimed at people not doing any research and believing everything they see. I’m also trying to manage expectations.

    More than happy to amplify rumors if they have a solid basis (and I have done that multiple times in the past). The Sega sorry is utter malarkey though.

    You're right, they were hyped by an impossible wipeout reboot by sega as they did for zero, as far as I understood.
    I'm extremely lucky. I have 6 months to do whathever I want, for some personal reasons. So maybe I'll be able to set up into everyone's agenda at least 5 or 10mn online old school gameplay during a week-end in april. Also, trying to raise the deads, which is fkin impossible so far. Didnt know F-Zero had a more active community lol, as afaik they cant play online? Sad.
    There's a still a CRAZY fkn competitive scene for wipeout 2024, online. HD or Omega. Rage quitted due to glitch in 2010 for me but guess what I'm back. Dealing wth it, and starting to learn2.51 physics. Never ending story.
    Till the next real wipeout, future is now (RPCS3 = Wipeout HD/Fury @120fps, high res).
    (sorry for my engrish)

    WipEout is infinitely more niche than F-Zero. It’s way more hardcore and doesn’t shy away from it. The F-Zero hype is amplified in particular by the Smash Bros community and, more generally, by Nintendo fanboys, casual gamers and N64 nostalgics.

    It’s really strange how we’ve been gifted so many WipEout games since the last F-Zero came out (F-Zero GX, in... 2003!). Not that I’m complaining about it

    not related to this fked topic anyway, but I can't read your pms for some reasons, so I say it here. Last time I got "life" then nothing, but I received the mail notification, now I'm getting "It' , the first word I guess, then nothing. Sad we can't even pm someone now.

    EDIT : Got the rest through my mail. Anyway. Back to the Icaras academy for some more speed laps then sleep.

    Ditto the PM's are not working properly.
    I know I haven't visited the zone in ages, but I still should have gotten email alerts people had sent me messages....It hadn't until I got one yesterday telling me Kanar had sent me one.

    Anyway, while I'm here and to answer who I know is still active on Playstation at least,I went through my friends list, which has a LOT of old WO pilots from the HD WC days, and here is what I have found, their PSID's and regarding recent activity.

    Those of you who are trying to get old pilots out of retirement for tournaments might find it interesting.

    PLEASE don't put it upon me to contact these pilots, the PSNID's are correct so you can message them yourselves to alert them of your tournaments if you so wish.

    ACE-FLO - [ Infoxicated best mate = he got barred and reinstated so many times at this forum, was UK based, but I remember he told me he was moving to the USA , if that happened ??doesn't even show activity, yet I see his name appear in DISCORD ....?

    Hellfire_WZ - 4 months [ part wipeouzone forum owner and seldom seen]
    Hybrid_Divide - 15 hours [ can't remember if UK or USA based]
    ID_7of9 - minutes ago - [Another SUPER fast FEMALE phantom pilot, has 2 or 3 kids, so has disappeared for months on end when rearing them - God help us if her kids end up as fast as she is ]
    Kaori714 - 2 hours [French, one of the founders of the French Wipeout Arena forum if I remember correctly]

    Loid19 - +1 year [French ]

    Luna_bgd - +1 year [Croatia - Fastest Female pilot next to Stinkleroy and ID7of9 ]
    Mannjon - hours [ French]

    Moriarty79 - 1 month [Italian I think ]
    Pirtek74 [I've message him today to visit the forum]

    RizlaBoyBlue - 3 days [Fast Italian Phantom pilot, speaks English well ]
    SabinSlash - 3days [can't remember where they are located]
    SilverFoxy - 1 day [USA - another fast Phantom pilot]
    stin_WZ - 5 hours [ Scotland - If you can get him to put down the golf clubs, good luck with that ]
    Stinkleroy - +1 year, [UK , I've tried contacting her but she doesn't reply, nor does her partner AnErare, I know she suffers from Graves disease, I pray she is OK ]
    theconzio - 2 days, great at WO & Grand Turismo, so good a GT he got to fly around the world to represent Australia in the team events, he's from W.A like F1 nice guy Daniel Riccardo
    TheFroste - 11 months [USA, pretty sure Froste is soley a PC based player now, got heavily involved with PACER, and we all know how that turned out]
    TheWipeouter - always - The most fanatical online Wipeout player I know of, even more so than Danterich, at least Danterich take a brake now and then, not sure if he has ever been Phantom class though?

    Xtriko - 4 days, the lovable crazy guy from Portugal, he found the BR point on HD, Chenghou forward near the overpass, another super fast phantom pilot
    Zap1957 - hours [TBH I don't know much about Zap, all I can gather is they are 3 years older than me ]
    Zothommog - hours [I f i remember correctly from the Nordic countries ]

    Over the years, I've gotten messages from about 4 or 5 different people asking, "Hey, just asking, did you race against my DAD, as I see you on his friends list ?"

    I look at the PSNID and think, hell yes I did, and end up telling the kid about the olden days........

    - - - Updated - - -

    I've left the possibly problematic PSNID's out of the list.

    What I mean by problematic is those pilots that speak no English, which is something I had to deal with a LOT with the WOHD world cup back in the PS3 days.

    I wouldn't want anybody have to go through what KANAR and I did again, it was a absolute nightmare TBH, and consequently the tournament dragged on far far longer than it should have done.

    A word of warning when organizing a online tournament, as one who has suffered this.

    You HAVE to DRILL into the heads of the competitors to use GMT TIME, it's not hard to look up on the internet.

    SO many stuff up were caused by pilots not turning up to race at the correct time.

    They have their work cut out for them, because Redout 2 has completely ran away with the best anti-gravity presentation since Wipeout 2048. Any new Wipeout game would have to be beyond stellar to have a hope in hell of gaining any real following in what's already a niche market as far as I'm concerned.

    This does not look convincing enough to be authentic.

    Honestly getting tired of all the "reboot" nonsense, it's just another way to completely destroy what made a franchise great. As for the case of WipEout Merge, I can quote Vito Corleone with "Look how they massacred my boy".

    When it comes to video game reboots, take Forza Motorsport for example, with Forza Motorsport (2023) being considered a buggy and messed up release, to the point where Turn Ten are doing damage control with it.

    If they'll really do a new WipEout from... dare I say it (since Forza is making it very old already)... the ground up, maybe at least pick up after the FX350/400 Leagues.

    So now, is the F-Zero community able to pull out an international online tournament 24/7 PS3/PC CROSSPLAY last april week-end, out of nowhere? We should ask them? I'm joking mate . F-ZERO GX was the game who led me to wipeout (again ahah) pulse, then to you all back in the time Just check wz activity, especially GUESTS. As no one can register now. Hope to see you soon on the traX.

    It’s not as much a community as just hordes of rabbid absolutists and nostalgics. I’m not saying they’re better than us, just that there’s more of them.

    Good job on the tournament.

    If/when a new Wipeout comes out, I hope they can make it so that you can race arcade with the A.I. while waiting for players to join your hosted game. Mainly for when things are dead. I can see dead servers and people not wanting to wait around to play in order to race real people being a drawback from having more regular players imo..

    Yeah, it was pretty messy back then mate. I’ve been away from the scene but have been racing online here and there in Navek’s rapier rooms a couple evenings a week if I’m lucky. Kinda sucking hard on tracks lol I’m so rusty it’s embarrassing.

    For the record, and I may get banned after admitting this but here goes… I came back here thru the side entrance when I was banned as ACE-FLO. PSN is now ACE-2097.

    And… I don’t have a ps3 anymore so meh. I guess I’m out of Avalon.
