Real life ModNation Racers

By: goukijones Jun 13, 2010 | 2 Comments

This may be indescribable.

While driving somewhere one afternoon on Miami Beach I came across this Jimmy filling up his gas tank. This Jimmy thinks he's a real life ModNation Racer. Suspenders! I don't think this is serious cosplay, but if it is ... He should be on TV. Well maybe at least Gouki.com.

ModNation Racers check my stats

By: goukijones May 25, 2010 | 3 Comments

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.

ModNation Racers review (beta)

By: goukijones Jan 11, 2010 | 9 Comments

Yes yes, this is a review of the ModNation Racers beta. Videos, pictures of the game and my opinion. If you're a fan of Mario Kart 64 oh boy Jimmy!

ModNation Racers had me pumped and screaming at the TV. Everything about the racing reminds me of Mario Kart 64. Mario Kart 64 was my favorite kart racing game of all time. I still have my original copy of the game with all of MY records. Choke/Peach suck. Now ModNation Racer isn't an exact clone, but it's real close. There's some racing enhancements, like the shield which is a great idea. You have to know the timing with the shield for all the different weapons so you can deflect them. There's also a straight up turbo that you build the meter up by drifting, doing other tricks, or using a weapon on another racer. Something else that is different from Mario Kart 64 is that you can boost while your drifting. Turbo while drifting really gets your kart going fast and my heart even faster. I thought was a great idea. Check out this video of my finishing in 1st place, Number 1 in the World!

Modnation Racer 1st place

I finished the beta with about 2800 experience points and was rated 5 stars "Phenom" so I got a good fill of the racing. Totally loving the racing! I would just load up MNR and work on the computer until the race started. Sometimes I was waiting up 10 minutes to get into a race. That didn't bother me though. Never lagged out of a race. I wish at the very beginning of the game (especially after the first time I loaded the game up) that it would skip all of the intros and load right into the Modspot. The last couple of days I played, as soon as the Modspot loaded up I went right into experience races. On average there was at least 7 people in the same race. 4-12 spots.

"I'm not cheating asshole! I have the level 3 green speed boost it does a warp." The noobs, the screaming kids and obnoxious voices were the worst thing about the game. I couldn't find the mute button. There's got to be more weapons in the final version, there was only four I think in the beta. I have an idea for one, how about a slingshot. It grabs the closest kart to you, stops him/her and slingshots you passed them. Level 2 would just have a further reach and level three forces all the kart to go backwards for 3 seconds except yours.

The creation station is extremely brilliant I saw some incredible designs! Basically you will have the tools to create anything you want.

I created how I envision my self in the virtual world "GoukiJones."
