If ever there’s a video game crying out for a remake, this is it. Wipeout anti-gravity racing launched in the mid-’90s on Playstation, PC and Sega Saturn, and it was epic. Set in 2052, players competed in the F3600 anti-gravity league, piloting racers around a variety of ludicrous tracks to a soundtrack by legendary artists Leftfield, Chemical Brothers, Orbital and others.
Taking us right back to 1996 is Volker Brodkorb, with two gorgeous anti-gravity racers inspired by the game. Each is built brilliantly and includes a mini-figure pilot and some wonderful custom decal work to boot. You can join the race at Volker’s Flickr album via the link above, and to be reminded how awesome Wipeout was watch a race in 1080p here!
We haven’t watched the new Godzilla movie, due to an unfortunate incident with the Elves at our local cinema prohibiting our patronage, but this vehicular version makes us a feel a bit better. Nissan’s R34 Skyline is getting on a bit now, but the passage of time hasn’t diminished the Godzilla legend. Senator Chinchilla helps to keep the story going with this instantly recognisable Model Team recreation. See more at the link.
Flickr’s Tim Inman has been busy building this, er… thing; the ‘Meat Wagon’ from the Playstaiton game ‘Twisted Metal’. Based on a 1960’s Miller Meteor ambulance, it features a few extra modifications that you’re unlikely to find on the Emergency Services’ finest. You’ve probably noticed the guns on the front wings, but it also contains a morbidly creative method of bringing the pain; a patient strapped to a controllable gurney loaded with TNT. See all the photos on Flickr via the link above.
