There's no anti-gravity racing quite like WipEout, unless you're an F-Zero fan. But what if you want a taste of speed, but you can't play the latest WipEout? What if your main console is a Switch, or you skipped the most recent console generation entirely? Fortunately, there's plenty of alternatives for those who need to go at subsonic speeds.

You know those types of games that you just cannot but help buy, no matter how much your brain tells you otherwise? That's me with anything that looks like WipEout. If it's going at several hundred kilometres a second and looks like it's hovering above a track somewhere, poof. Money out of the wallet, even though I almost always end up regretting it.
Case in point: Formula Fusion. When it first launched in Early Access, I dropped $36 straight away. $36 on a game that barely had a UI, had one track, one ship and not much else. It's just gotten a mammoth update, and holy hell has the game come a long way in a year.
If you've got an active PS+ account, you'll be able to download a little arcade racer for free this month. It's called Table Top Racing, and its the brainchild of Nick Burcombe, who worked on the first two Wipeout games back in the 1990's.
Unsurprisingly, he too would like another Wipeout game -- but if it's going to happen, he'll need to go through Kickstarter.
