Owww pretty lights!
You already know what Wipeout is, it's a futuristic racing game with weapons! It was originally a launch title with the original playstation and has since then continued to appear on every single playstation platform. Each time it tries to look push the hardware of the playstation.
When Wipeout HD was released a few years ago, it did something no other game has done. It was the first game to ever run at 1080p. No upscaling, no clever tricks so that it could claim to be 1080p, it was 1080p as you should expect that claim to be.
It has been out for a number of years and has since had an expansion pack as well.
It's also quite a notorious title for being pretty challenging compared to some of it's contemporary racing counterparts.
Anyway, as of today, it's free to just about every Playstation 3 owner as part of the 'welcome back' offer. So go download it!
Also, a few of us were speaking in the main omigod playstation network is downz topic and a few of us wanted to have a jolly big race and in the process try and get a few really difficult trophies that Wipeout has on offer.
There are two trophies are...
Bling Brigade - Finish an eight player online race with all players using ships that are displaying Campaign Skins.
Endurance - Finish an online 12 race tournament.
Sounds easy right? Well no, because not everybody picks a capaign skin when racing and you have to actually find a tournament with 12 people in it and hope that they all 'finish' it, by that they have to all at race until they are knocked out.
But for now lets focus on at least getting the Bling Brigade trophy, we need 8 people to join us in our race, and everybody needs to select a campaign skin... but not so fast... first you need to unlock it, the quickest way to unlock a campaign skin is to play campaign mode and get at least a bronze medal in all cells. Once you've done that we can go get our trophies.
So if anyone wants to join us, please make yourself known.
(you do not need to own Wipeout Fury in order to join, the DLC does NOT impact this trophy, so if you have the game already you can still join regardles as to if you have the DLC or not).

4: RadRed (Chooch)

I will most likely be seeking further help from PS3trophies.org so please try and get a campaign skin asap if you wish to join us.
Well jolly good and hope we have some fun after all the stress we've had over the last month.
Oh and if you've never played Wipeout before or have no idea what it's like. Here is a rather banging video with one hell of an epic soundtrack.
