Here’s an amusing video of Jack, grown up child actor, Tretton taking on Kevin Butler at ModNation Racers. Plenty of smack talk going down and features a bit of a teaser towards Gran Turismo 5 at the end…
Look out for a review of Modnation Racers on the blog this week, which coincidently is when its released too.
Well, it appears that the review embargo is up on ModNation Racers, as IGN has reviewed it 3 weeks ahead of time . Apparently, it’s a definite contender in kart racers, and the creativity and sharing aspects are great. The only real negative they had with the game (that barred anything above the given 9/10) is the extensive loading times, which take a few seconds short of a minute to load a race.
Given the apparent quality of the title and the praise it is receiving, it still sounds good enough to, at the very least, rent it. You can read the full written review here.
It was rather obvious Sackboy would make an appearance in ModNation Racers (with his Cardboard Roadster). Along with that announcement, the ‘bonus mods’ have been revealed as well (which come with one of the previously announced pre-order characters), including Mouse Trap, Lil Tinker, Cowboy and Woody (pics after the jump).
In order to get Sackboy, a voucher will be made available inside select copies of the games, so I’d go ahead and say pretty much all of them . To know for sure, though, it’s labeled via a sticker (I uploaded a photo of that on the box art as well).
If you pre-order ModNation Racers from goHastings online, you can get it for $39.99, which is $20 off retail. Pretty sick deal. Shipping is $2.99, though.
So far, in my opinion, this is probably the coolest one yet. Check out the track as Michael McClain describes what went on as he designed the track. One of the cooler touches was the blast crater, and it sounds like the track itself was all made from in-game props, too, which is really neat. The more they show off the game, the more I get excited for it. It’s still a rental for me, as I’m more into sim racers, but this looks very fun.
