we want a new wipEout racing game !

StormSnooper42d ago (Edited 42d ago )

They are working on another project as well which is ahead of this. But I definitely don’t want it to be wipeout. I loved those but wipeout would not be a AAA. SSM is too talented not to make something epic.

purple10142d ago

who would downvote a new wipeout, - people these days, no respect

ROCKY2842d ago

must be lil kids that would downvote a new wipEout racing game as they only know Fortnite and COD 😂

Crows9042d ago

It's a younger audience on the web. Some may never have really played it...many in fact.

jznrpg42d ago

I’ll a take a new Wipeout. I wonder who they would have make it though if it did happen

banger8842d ago

Just don't hire Sweet Baby Inc like you did with Ragnarök. Who am I kidding, of course they will.

SimpleSlave42d ago

Of course they will. Why would they cater to White Supremacist sympathizers like you? Did they not teach you how Capitalism works, bud?

FFS...

ravens5242d ago (Edited 42d ago )

White Supremacist*, Are you assuming banger88 is white? Or that only white people complain about SBI?

SimpleSlave42d ago

@ravens52 - White Supremacist is an ideology invented by white people, certainly, but it's practiced by the many different colors of the Rainbow. Take Kanye West for example, the guy is a White Supremacist and an focking idiot.

Seriously, stop being such a White Supremacy Pick-Me Simp and do learn how Capitalism works. Never go Full DeSantis is all I'm saying.

Now take you Dog Whistling SBI acronym and get lost, goofy.

Crows9042d ago

@raven

Don't bother with simple slave...the name says it all. Just send some squatters to his home while he's on vacation...I'm sure he'll love to show how virtuous he can be

SimpleSlave42d ago (Edited 42d ago )

@Crows90 - So you also hate homeless people. Shocking...but not really. I bet being homeless is wOke!! Reich? Yeah... I bet stealing land, defunding housing and education is the work of the Übermensch!!! and wholly Righteous, yeah? Of course.

Here's the thing, goof. I don't know what you were hoping or expecting here today, but exposing yourself like that? For what? You have nothing and you are nothing. You people shunned actual education for pure unadulterated hate and alternative facts.

But here, since you have such a fascination with squatting let me give you what you want; 🍑💩

There, you see? We Leftist can also reach across the isle just like Liberals love to do. Happy? Outstanding!

Ragnarök is a very good game and they should hire whoever they want to make their game. If you don't like, don't buy. There are millions who will. I saw some snowflakes crying and claiming they will boycott any any company that works with SB. I asked if they will boycott Steam, since Valve has worked with SB?

Umb41d ago

Or any other group similar to that self righteous, gamer hating mob. Until the DEI/ESG money runs out I not holding my breath. Let developers make games and fullfil their vision and not cowered to a small minority, who cries the loudest, has freinds in high places that pushes a narrative.

I not white but somehow will be lumped together with white supremacists, Naz!!!s, because I do not subscribe to WOKE ideology. Case in point - SimpleSlave.

SimpleSlave41d ago

"Let developers make games and fullfil their vision and not cowered to a SMALL MINORITY, who cries the loudest, has freinds in high places that pushes a narrative." Yeah, about that. You might want to check the Popular Vote in the US...

Listen, screaming Woke while playing the Acronym game is White Supremacy Dog Whistling. The fact is that even if you don't consider yourself one, you're still a White Supremacist ally; You're still furthering their hate and propaganda. So it makes no difference.

Now, before you keep whining and moaning and melting like a whiteflake, how about you define this Woke ideology, bud? What does it mean to you and how does it differ from your normal? In fact, what IS this normal that you're missing in games or in life, for that matter? What's really bothering you, mhhh? Enlighten us.

Also, is it true that your type consider the female Characters in Mortal Kombat 9 sexier than in MK 11 and 1? And have you visited those MK9 3D models lately? Cuz I gotta tell you, you might be into what you hate. In fact, you might be hating yourself, which is even sadder.

This should be eye opening...

Umb41d ago

Popular vote?? From which source or echo chamber. Popular vote like Budlite.. popoluar vote like Suicide Squad. If you go be the metric of popular vote, see how that will fly in Asia, East Europe, Africa, Latin America, The Middle East...

Yeah its a small minority sitting in Western countries crying the loudest. So popular that developers will only push it western countries but will self censor in China and the middle east.

SimpleSlave41d ago

@Umb - Popular vote like Spider-Man. Popular vote like God of War Ragnarok. Popular Vote like Human Rights for woman. Popular Vote for Democrats Presidents. Yeah, the Popular Vote from the most powerful voices on this Earth. You don't like it? Move.

"If you go be the metric of popular vote, see how that will fly in Asia, East Europe, Africa, Latin America, The Middle East..."
Sweetie, beside your amazing ignorance of many of those countries and Continents, I'm in America, and this is where we change the world. Besides, just because a lot of other countries are lagging behind doesn't mean we have to follow suit. In fact, THEY are the ones following suit. They are the ones catching up to us. We are making them better by making ourselves better. And by your own argument, you even admit it. Did you see Saudi Arabia allowing Women in sports? WOKE!!! lol. Thanks America!

You really thought that was a good argument? Ffs...

"Yeah its a small minority sitting in Western countries crying the loudest."
It's the majority of the most powerful country on this Earth, son. Go whine and moan to China if you admire them so much. Let me know how it goes when you don't agree with the Winnie-the-Pooh dictator. In fact, go to China and call Xi, Winnie-the-Pooh. We'll never here from you again. Here? In the Land of the Free? Self Censoring Cowards like you can call the President Brandon and I'll still have to interact with you the next day. So be thankful for WOKE, you ingrate.

"So popular that developers will only push it western countries but will self censor in China and the middle east."
Yeah, it's call Capitalism. Have you actually heard of it? It's call making ALL the money. Again, finish school first before engaging in any serious conversation, bud. Cuz this was tragic.

Listen, you went full DeSantis. And that's on you.

MrVux00041d ago

I certainly will be more cautious with developers associated with bigoted/racist companies similar to SBI.

This includes Sony Santa Monica. Its a good thing we have SBI detected that is growing day after day by the thousands.

Worse case scenario, buy those games second hand if in any doubt... this way developers will get no money. Will it change much in short term? Nah, especially with that sweet sweet ESG funding and similar things. But long term? Heads will roll sooner or later.

Umb41d ago

Bravo, (slow clap).
You Sir, understands the situation and even have a short term solution.

Bravo.

SimpleSlave41d ago

You certainly should be extra cautious. Especially when you think that this lame white supremacist gaslighting technique is actually going to work. "Oh, we're not the bigot/racist ones! They are! The ones that like Diversity. That's white Oppression, don't you know?" Just another Dog Whistle to add to the pile of stupid.

But my advice to you is simple; Run.

This society is going fully WOKE and there will be no space for the likes of you. Diversity and Representation will continue to permeate Entertainment so you might as well call it quits.

Besides, even if you buy a game used, you'll still get indoctrinated by our WOKE Ideologies, so don't be so stupid.

Fly, you fools...

MrVux00041d ago (Edited 41d ago )

@SimpleSlave

Your indirect racism/bigotry and threats aside...

I will just tell you this, outside of the internet and the digital world (the real world) ... there are far more normal people like me than people like you. And that will remain the case for many centuries to come.

And you just reminded me why i don't entertain places like N4g or internet in general as much as i used to. But thankfully, things are changing for the better already around the world and people are really "waking up".

SimpleSlave41d ago

@MrVux000 - "Your indirect racism/bigotry and threats aside..."
Again, not gonna work, bud. The bigotry and racism comes from the side that's whining and moaning about Diversity and Representation. You know, your side. So stop melting, whiteflake.

"I will just tell you this, outside of the internet and the digital world (the real world) ... there are far more normal people like me than people like you. And that will remain the case for many centuries to come."
Patently untrue. I know you love to think that, but that's not even close to reality. That's an Alternative Fact mentality just so you can feel justified in your bigotry and racism. You're going full DeSantis, pal. So sad.

There's a reason Republicans are known to do everything in their power to disenfranchise voters, push for gerrymandering, and perpetuate the State Rights mentality; They know they are in the minority. They don't have the votes. If the Presidential elections where to change to the Popular Vote, they would lose and lose and lose and then lose some more. Ditto if there were terms for their appointed judges in the supreme court and in congress.

"And you just reminded me why i don't entertain places like N4g or internet in general as much as i used to."
That's because 4chan is not spelled N4g, goof. Plenty of other hate filled bubbles for your bigotry and racism. So do go find a circle jerk to cry about it. But this ain't it.

Still, pretty ironic that it is now your side who can't stand the heat and are getting triggered by WOKE. You took us by surprise, sure, but we adapt far better than you people. Your minority is hateful and loud and do have friends in very high places, but we'll keep pushing on and keep pushing you people out. It helps that we value education and empathy while you people don't. At least not for the vast majority, just for the ones in power.

"But thankfully, things are changing for the better already around the world and people are really "waking up"."
You're right. People around the world are finally finding out what happened when you stay complacent and let literal Nazis take over your country. We understand it's time to actually do something about it and send that pest back to the holes they crawled out of. Thankfully, many are doing something about it. We are WOKE...without the quotation marks, cuz we're not cowards. We own that word and we own what it represent.

And we'll get there for sure. Even extreme countries are actually allowing women to take part in sports and even drive. So even if it takes us another Thousand years, we'll get there. We'll even use Capitalism to do it for us... How poetic.

My advice to you? Move to Russia and have fun. See how it goes when you decide to come up with some clever "Let's go Brandon" slogan to describe the Putin. Make sure to make a video while you're getting disappeared.

Good luck.

MrVux00041d ago

@SimpleSlave

1) Again, another racist remark.
2) Who the hell is DeSantes?
3) Oh you are American. That explains the obsession with extremist behavior of the left and the right. Dont involve me in that nonsense. I have my fill of people like yourself and politicians in general.
4) I was the one who supported the woke movement when it started. I sure as shit dont like what certain groups of people turned that word into today.
5) Speaks of Nazi... ironically acts like a Nazi. Bravo, you and your peers certainly are doing well to maintain the slandered reputation of the word "woke".
6) I lived in Russia and i am proud Slav in general. That does not mean my culture does not have its share off problems (re-read point 3).

7) We also allowed men into female sports. Good for us.

Like i said, this is the internet ... and words are wind. Back to the normal world.

SimpleSlave41d ago (Edited 41d ago )

@MrVux000

1) And again we'll continue to push you people aside because of your racism and bigotry. Yes.
2) DeSantis. He's who represents your type of ideology. The Anti-Woke. In fact, he's your future. Fun.
3) "Dont involve me in that nonsense." Yet here you are whining and moaning and towing the White Supremacist flag of hate. How about that? A hypocrite and a coward.
4) Oh? You were there during the Segregation era in the US? Interesting. How old are you again? Suspect.
5) Yes, because Nazis love Diversity, Representation and love to help Immigrants. Seriously, you should ask for your money back, cuz that education of yours was a joke.
6) Ah, Russia. Not a single Woke in that country... Wait, what happens again when you go out into the streets and march against the Putin? Nothing, reich? Nothing at all. Unlike in the US, where we make people disappear just for hating on Brandon...sorry, Biden.

...Oh, wait. That's not true. It's the other way around. How silly of me. Here's an experiment, go out into the streets and start disparaging your "Elected" Dictator and film it. Then put it on YouTube. Show us Woke Americans how your Anti-Woke liberties and rights work. Please.

7) You also allow men into women's sport... Wut? You mean trans woman? ...Wait a minute. I thought you used to be pro-Woke! Now you're just a plain 'ol bigot? Shocking...

"Like i said, this is the internet ... and words are wind. Back to the normal world."
Just remember to not say anything against the Putin while standing in front of a window on a tall building. But if you do, film it. I want to see how real Anti-Woke freedom looks like when it hits you right in the face.

Good luck.

Umb41d ago

Wow, just wow, working real hard to shove your opinion on other and slyly attacking people at the same time.

DeSantis?.. I not even from the USA, my point exactly. The little group in the western countries crying the loudest.

SimpleSlave40d ago

@Umb - I see you're still working real hard pushing that faux outrage of yours. I mean, you could've moved on, bud. Or you can grow a backbone and define your position clearly. Stop being such a coward.

"DeSantis?.. I not even from the USA, my point exactly."
Yeah... I couldn't have said it better myself.

"The little group in the western countries crying the loudest."
And you're from what big and amazingly un-Woke and free but-only-for-some country?

How about you stop hiding and come out from there? Be loud and proud, kid. You owe it to yourself.

When your on top, you don’t give up the throne that easily

isarai42d ago

Ive been here for every god of war, after nearly 20yrs i would just like to see them do something else. I get they are still great games, but it just seems like a waste of their largest studio.
