Some of you guys on here have asked, and I have listened! Starting July 6th, 2011, I will start holding WipEout HD game nights that will occur on Wednesday nights. Want to get in on the fun? All you have to do is add me on the Playstation Network, my name is mgsguy over there. We're going to be using Skype for voice chat, so if you want to join, my username over there is MetalGearSunny. I'll start at around 8 to 8:30 PM Eastern Standard time, I'm sorry I can't give you an exact date because hey, I have a life too! I hope to see y'all there, can't wait to play some WipEout online with ya!

I'd love to join but it's way too late at night for me. 8PM EST translates to 3AM here.

I think that'll be 1 o'clock GMT over here (not sure since I'm shit with time) but yeah, I might be online playing the UC3 Beta. If I am, just message me and I'll swap over to Wipeout. Also, make a chatroom so we all can join in and chat.

I love WipEout. 
#16 Posted by suikoden352 (419 posts) -

i grabbed wipeout hd with my welcome back picks. haven't played much of it though. never have gotten into the wipeout series. i liked what i have played of it so far out of the first few races i did. need to get used to it more. i'd be down with playin but i wouldn't wanna be a buzzkill to anyone though for not fully knowing the game or understanding it completely.

#17 Posted by InfiniteGeass (2051 posts) -

I'm down.

#18 Posted by kingclaw (757 posts) -

Damn, i have a final tomorrow, but maybe I'll be there for a couple of races, not sure thou

#24 Posted by Hirashin (64 posts) -

That session wiped my out!

#25 Posted by ArclightBorealis (1563 posts) -

That was pretty fun. That second Eliminator match was probably my best moment.

#26 Posted by eroticfishcake (7782 posts) -

Good game lads. I forgot how good the multiplayer can be in Wipeout. Let's hope we continue to do this every Wednesday.

#27 Posted by CandiBunni (465 posts) -

I'm guessing it's over now? Sorry. ^^; I'll try to be on next Wednesday.

WipEout WednEsdays?

#29 Posted by MetalGearSunny (6986 posts) -

First day of WipEout Wednesdays was a success! Thanks for all that showed, hopefully I'll see y'all next week along with some new faces!

I'm down and thanks for stealing my name idea :P

Maybe have it on Wednesdays... Wipeout Wednesdays...
Maybe. We'll see how this first one goes.

Also what speed do you guys race at?

#31 Posted by MetalGearSunny (6986 posts) -
@RE_Player92: Whatever the second tier is, that one. We did one with the speed cranked up just for fun.  Sorry I stole your idea, but it was too good to pass up. Send me a friend a friend request so we can get you in next week!
#32 Posted by RE_Player1 (7549 posts) -

@Metal_Gear_Sunny: I'm glad you stole it, one of the few good ideas I've had. Hearing that you guys play at the second tier speed has me relieved, I played the top tier and got destroyed. I'll send you a friend request next time I'm online.

#33 Posted by InfiniteGeass (2051 posts) -

Woops, totally forgot about tonight.

Started at 8pm Eastern and ended around 10:20. I was up for another hour but I guess people got business and sich. Was fun though. 
#36 Posted by N7 (3573 posts) -

I will definitely be able to make it next week unless I end up moving from where I am now.

#37 Posted by ESREVER (2667 posts) -

I'll try to make it to next week's WW. Today was no-good. 
Lookin' forward to it.

#38 Posted by The_Drizzle (624 posts) -

Definitely a blast, we should try to figure out some way to set up communication next time!

The voice chat in Wipeout HD is pretty shit. That's why I was using Skype with two people in the group, the rest was using the dumb XMB chat thing. So if you have Skype, that would be useful!
#40 Edited by N7 (3573 posts) -

@Metal_Gear_Sunny: And for those that don't know, voice-chat in Wipeout is PUSH TO TALK. Yeah, that's right. You guys saw how hardcore and fast-paced that game is, yet it requires you to push in one of the analog sticks to talk to people. I don't use Skype but man that would be a much better option.

Yup. Not to mention the audio quality is shit!

Sorry I couldn't make it last night. I didn't even know we were having it on Wednesdays. I still thought it was Friday. I'll make it next week.

#45 Posted by MetalGearSunny (6986 posts) -

Reminder! Today is Wednesday! Which means tonight we're gonna play some WipEout! Remember to send an invite to mgsguy on PSN if you want to join, and if you want to talk on Skype, my username on there MetalGearSunny.

I'm in, though I am completely dumb when it comes to time zones. Just, someone from Europe, notify me somehow, pretty please. Or just tell me when it's in Poland.


Also, FUCK ME, it sucks balls that I've lost game data when I've decided to switch from my buddy's DVD of WipEout to my own digital copy.

#47 Posted by MetalGearSunny (6986 posts) -
@Ghostiet: I think someone told me it was 1 AM over there. Not sure though...
#48 Posted by Redbullet685 (6025 posts) -

I'll be on tonight. I'll make sure I play a bit, but I also want to play more of the UC3 beta, since I'm pretty sure it's the last day.

If it's on in an hour and 30 minutes, then it's 1 AM.

I hate time shenanigans.


Oh, right, the PSNid is Grumbellgast.
