You have probably seen the TV show Wipeout. Unfortunately light on futuristic racing hovercraft and heavy on overweight middle-aged accountants jumping on massive padded balls, the series has become a light entertainment smash-hit throughout the world. I have to admit however that I wasn’t aware it was so popular that it had already spawned two video games, with a third on its way very soon.
Wipeout 3 will be published by Activision and released this Fall, on Xbox 360 Kinect, 3DS and Wii. Apparently the new game will feature twelve course themes based on both the summer and winter editions of the TV program and also an in-game shop that will offer unlockable characters and episodes. Sounds fun for about 10 minutes, but I’m not sure anyone would want to stick with it for longer than that. Have any of you guys tried out the previous games in the series? If so, what are your thoughts on its kinect-fueled antics?
