Wipeout Pure Classic Packs - Japan release schedule updated

よ〜しゅ! The Japanese Wipeout Pure website has announced release dates for the next two expansion packs. Classic Pack 1 will be available from 1pm tomorrow, October 7th, and Classic Pack 2 will be available from October 21st. If they stick to that, it will represent a significant speeding-up of the Japan releases, which have been pootling along at not-quite-one-a-month since launch.

Classic Pack 1 contains a menu skin (Tigron), two music tracks (Cairodrome and Canada, both by Cold Fusion and already featured in previous games in the series) and a new circuit, Altima VII. Altima VII is actually a circuit from the original Wipeout (1995! "Ten years, man!" </Grosse Point Blank>), but I don't know if they've included it here as a full circuit, or as one of the blocky lo-fi simulations that was used for the four classic circuits that came pre-loaded on Pure. The former, I hope. We shall see.

Progress report... kind of stalled on 190 golds. Need to switch some leisure time away from non-essential activities (sleeping, eating, girlfriend) and back to where it belongs... that frikkin' series of esses on Citta Nuova.

Oh - and I found a Wikipedia page for Wipeout, which is detailed and authoritive in much the same way that Antarctica is white and cold.

I remeber playing the Altima VII track on a Playstation - before they foreshortened the name to this PS1 marlarcky - in Cream whilst the Chemical Brothers were playing. Not on the game, they were actually there throwing out some mad tunes and pounding beats.

It was one of those red bull promotion thingies and they were handing out free cans left right and centre.

I tell you, that fourth free can of red bull really sharpens up the reflexs on the tight corners. The fifth can? Probably a little too much.
