    Ad-Hoc mode doesn't work in this. Sat next to my brother and about 15 attempts to create a lobby can't even find him when he's sat next to me.

    Shite.

    Hated, adored, never ignored.

    Getting an ad-hoc or online game with a friend is one of the most painful experiences ever.

    Needs sorting out. Big time.

    Hated, adored, never ignored.

    I'd be happy if connecting to PSN didn't freeze the game forcing a reboot of the machine.

    The devs put up some tips about forwarding certain ports on your router to fix it because it's a known issue but that doesn't work, unsurprisingly.

    The should just patch the fucking thing.

    Are you sure the ports have been opened? There's a free tool to check at port forward.com. Worth checking into.

    Can anyone confirm whether, like on the PS3 version, your top speed increases with pilot assist off?

    Because if that's the case, I may as well take the training wheels off sooner rather than later.

    Not even bothered using my online pass yet, seems pointless with the issues people are talking about but I'll say this much, the graphics keep blowing me away on this, just got to the level where its in the sky, with no sides, amazing.

    Didn't really fancy this as I'm shit at wipeout games but got it as an afterthought and its by far my most played game. Addicted to trying to get elites and beat other peoples scores.

    Pretty annoying all the notifications though 'xxxxx has beaten you on xxxx by 0.0001 seconds' Stop beating me!!

    This game is worth the price of the vita alone (and vita is one of the cheapest big console launches I can think of).

    Quality

    Anyone know how many Near challenges you upload at any one time? I like the idea of going around my area dropping challenges down but have a feeling you can only have one at a time?

    Is anybody having problems opening up wipeout after downloading the patch? The startup won't work unless i cancel it connecting to psn. Which means only single player can be played, as if I launch multiplayer whilst in the game it crashes again.
  • Deleted user 29 February 2012 12:26:57
    It's fine for me. If you have the Twatter then @wipeout2048 or @drstulovegrove are pretty responsive.

    Any videos of the time trial on Capital Reach? I can't beat 2:30 to get an Elite pass. Closest I've come is 2:30.49 :| But since that I can't go faster than 2:33.

    The fastest time on the track globally is 2:00... :eek:

    Is the track loading time in the demo representative of the whole game?

    It will be 2048 by the time it loads

    They patched the full version. It loads quicker from what I can tell.

    Any good? How many tracks are there? Was tempted to get this.

    Proper wipeout. Not quite as good as HD, but damn close IMO

    Tracks? Dunno - maybe 10?
  • Deleted user 1 March 2012 14:15:57
    Yup, 10 tracks plus another 4 or so from HD if you include crossplay, plus serious hints that Vita versions HD and Fury will be added later on this year.

    Had my first long online session with a friend last night. It works really well IMO. I love the requirements for suspccess in each races not necessarily being related to coming first. Really adds an edge to the whole thing. I can see myself spending a lot of time with that mode.

    @Pinky_Floyd and @fuzzyduck if you've unlocked the TT mode ( not too far into single player ), then simply do a TT then hit pause and hit the checkered flag button when you're happy with your time. The next screen will have a Near button, hit that and you'll get taken to the Near app to upload your time as a game good. Upload it and return to the year 2048, 49 or 50. :)

    It'll be available to people nearby plus people on your friends list.

    @BraveArse

    Ah, cheers for that. Was a bit annoyed at the digital manual in that it's mostly health and safety warnings! I'm thinking about picking up SSX on Friday, so i might take a break from having the eyes sheered out of my head ;)

    Absolutely loving this so far, the structure of both the single and multiplayer campaigns are really fun. The prototype ships are a fantastic addition too.
  • Deleted user 1 March 2012 17:51:07
    I'm picking up ssx tomorrow too :)

    Agree on the structure, it's nigh on perfect learning curve IMO.

    As for the spoiler.

    The prototype Feisar is genius. I love the fact that you have to hit the boost pads to make it sing. A few of the races I've had have seen me fall behind a place at the beginning of a lap only to gain 4 by the end of it. Rinse and repeat. Endlessly satisfying.

    Cool, i wonder will the drops on SSX rival that one on Altima? :eek:

    Yup, the prototype Feisar is indeed genius. It presents an excellent risk/reward in that if you're not getting a good line and hitting the speed pads, you're time is completely ruined, but you're seriously hoofing it if you are nailing them.

    I love the weird, primeval roar from the ships on this too, really gives the sensation that the tech isn't as refined as what's used in later antigrav seasons.

    Seeing as we're all Wipeout players in here, would ye recommend a download of either Pure or Pulse from the store? I've played neither, but have sank 100+ hours into HD/Fury.

    The spoiler you guys are referring to is awesome, my current ship of choice. I feel guilty using it online - but not enough to stop doing it :-)

    It also has the best sound of any ship (so far).

    Pulse > Pure IMO

    Yep. Most of the HD tracks were originally in Pure, so you're better off with the new courses/style of Pulse.

    Cheers for the input peeps, queueing up Pulse for download so :D

    @neems Naughty naughty! I'll be doing that myself the next time i'm racing online ;)

    Edit - Just looked it up, Sebenco Climb isn't in Pulse. I hate Sebenco Climb. Pulse it is!

    Just don't do what I did and accidentally use it for a combat event - there weren't any boost pads on the track at all.
