I'm racing like the beta just ended yesterday. I'm officially starting the Gouki.com racing group. Go to my profile to get my PSN ID.
I couldn't get this game out of the package fast enough. First of all I got it @bestbuy for $26.74. Stolen! How? You are asking yourself right now. Well I had $35 in coupons from games like Final Fantasy XIII and Mass Effect 2 and whatever games I've purchased from Best Buy over the last couple of months.
ModNation Racers is an absolute blast. Old school Mario Kart racing all the way. That's the bottom line to be loving this game so much. It feels so much like Mario Kart 64 which is my favorite Mario Kart of all time! The sliding in the kart now is updated with being able to boost while you slide and that makes yuo go even faster. You can put a shield up that will block most enemy weapons locked on to you. You can sideswipe Jimmys and do stunts when you fly high through the air. @batrastered ... Yes, it still takes a while for it to load up the races, but it is totally worth every second once they load. Shit, I've managed to write half this story waiting for it to load up. I don't care, it's great for me to have it on, sit in a XP lobby and while I'm waiting for races to load up, I'm working on the computer. Pwn! Still getting booted from races and still getting booted from just the servers in the ModSpot. That sucks, I hope that improves because today is the first day and hopefully the servers ARE busy. No custom controls or what I could find so far. The menus are very confusing. I can't even party up with my friends yet, somebody help me. From what it looks like so far is that there is a real money shop in game to buy mods for your kart or your Jimmy. Jimmy don't like paying for DLC! The only free DLC I got was a Sack Boy nubfarm skin mod and cardboard kart. Garbage! I wanted the Drake! Waiting this entire story now for a race. I don't care, I love the thrill. C'mon start up another!!! Oh by the way still ... SERIOUSLY DAMAGING SCREEN BURN EFFECT. sad face.
Don't be a Jimmy! *for more information on the Gouki.com racing group leave a comment on this story.
