WipEout HD

Pretty rocket car

The WipEout game series is maybe my favorite game series, ever. The latest installment is a Playstation 3 exclusive that runs in 1080P at 60FPS and, yes, is pretty gorgeous.

One of my favorite non-gameplay additions is a pretty slick photo mode for taking pretty screenshots. I posted a series of 1920x1080 shots here.

addendum:

Here's the playlist I'm using. It's a little on the "genre" side, I realize, but the only things that really work here are very electronic, with fast tempos.

  • "Two Masks" - Source Direct
  • "Soda's Theme" - Ilkae
