Re: Google Earth Updates Sable Ranch!

That's an interview with Camille I found. After seeing it, I really feel like she's going to do a great job as host.

She did confirm that the colors are a lot brighter which was something we saw in the linings of the pools. This makes me a bit nervous as this is one of the things they did with the Takeshi's Castle reboot.

She also said, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it." This does sound a bit strange seeing as so much of this reboot seems like it's trying to fix what wasn't broken.

"If it ain't broke don't fix it" is how the show got in trouble in the first place as they failed to fix the things that were broke (i.e. the smackwall obsession) and proceeded to "fix" things that didn't need fixing with their decisions in the final season.

More colour doesn't really excite me either as I've always felt that when the show moved away from it's signature red and blue colouring and became more about the look rather than the physical obstacle things began to deteriorate. However that said it would be good for the new incarnation to have a defining look of it's own.

It won't play more than five seconds on my phone emoticon

Yeah, that is strange and I'm worried that the thing they're "Not fixing" is the smackwalls, considering they definitely have "fixed" (though it didn't need it!) the format and hosting. The brighter color scheme does make me nervous, just hope it at least keeps classic colors (in brighter shades). Doesn't it look a bit more like the tone of color used in Argentina?

By the way, I'm hoping more Wipeoutheads will return soon considering all of the fanfare (good and bad) it's been getting recently. We haven't even heard from one of Oliver's six accounts yet emoticon

Me too! I'm glad I found a way to chat with people who also like talking about Wipeout and I'd love to meet more.

Yep! As you may have seen in the archives, we used to have a lot of faithful members in this area but many went away once Wipeout was cancelled. I guess it has been years so maybe some have moved on from caring or just forgot this place emoticon

On that note, can I ask how you found this page? I'm curious because I was searching "Wipeout forum", "Wipeout gameshow", etc. the other day to see if our page came up, but we didn't and instead a bunch of individual threads came up on forums that clearly had no real interest in the show (eg. most people just wrote stuff like "I only watch for the Big Red Ballz and Jill Wagner is hot"). So I was annoyed.

But I just looked it up again to show an example of one of the dumb threads and now we ARE the top result emoticon Wonder what changed and hope more people find us now!

I was just trying to find out as much about the reboot as possible and I googled "Wipeout Forum" at some point and found this place. emoticon

Ah cool. Glad you found us or there wouldn't be very much talk going on at all!

Ah, that makes a bit more sense that we came up!

Although there was a time when we didn't even come up with that for a few months (after Comedy Central paid to have their articles promoted, pushing us way down in search results), so still good to hear we're findable emoticon
