Thursday Night Throwdown 07/22: ModNation Racers

Join us for some PS3 kart-racing fun in this week's edition of Giant Bomb's community game night!

With ModNation Racers having been out on the PlayStation 3 for just shy of two months--plenty of time for the MRC community to cook up a wide variety of truly ridiculous user-created content--we figured what better time to build an episode of Thursday Night Throwdown around this PS3-exclusive kart racer than, say... RIGHT NOW! 
 
That's right! Starting at 4PM Pacific Daylight Time we'll be playing ModNation Racers, here, live! If you want in on the action, send a friend request to GBTNT on the PlayStation 3, and we'll do what we can to squeeze you in. Otherwise, sit back, relax, enjoy the live video stream of the action in the window below, and if you want to engage other TNT spectators or ask us questions, head over to Justin.tv to join the chat room! 
 
UPDATE: Thanks everyone who played with us tonight! If you missed it, you can catch the archived version below.

Yay! TNT!

Awesome, it sucks I can't watch this one live or participate due to working goddamned night shifts. Want to see what sort of craziness people come up with.

Oh right, this must be the first "console exclusive game" TNT (aside from TF2). 
 
[EDIT] Scratch that, forgot about Halo Reach.

Posted by Mechwing

Posted by TJ311
@FluxWaveZ:  they actually did one with the Halo: Reach beta

Blur was practically console exclusive 'cause no one showed up to play ps3

Hopefully the audio will be better in this one.

Glad to see Giant Bomb has swapped over to a better site. To bad my connection speed today has been terrible so I most likely wont be able to watch this.

@FluxWaveZ: Just to make sure that you know this, but Halo: Reach was on the first week of TNT.  You know, just so you know.

Hmm, wonder if they will do any call backs to previous games.

Well I don't know if that's the real reason but it's a good one at least. :p
Posted by Murtaug

The video quality on Justin.tv last week was leaps and bounds better than Ustream, from my experience with TNT thus far, and I have only missed one of the live broadcasts.

Ryan, on Twitter, said something about being fed up at the lack of any technical support provided by Ustream.
 
JTV has a bad rep of spamming adverts in the chat etc but I have to say the stream is much more stable, and a better quality, for me.

No pre game show?

Posted by WillyFourEyes

I'm primed and ready. I just hope my connection holds up. I've been having trouble staying online with MNR ever since I bought it. My brother thinks it's just me.

All will be forgiven if the next Whiskey Media site is Cooking Show based and headed by Vinny. 
Someone check if Cooked.com or ChefVine.com is available.

You mean this community won't run a joke into the ground at any given opportunity?

I placed second on the first race I feel so honored

Boring game... lol. I'm out :P

Posted by DoctorWelch

Why does Jeff hate everything? Everything, litterally EVERYTHING that anyone else likes, he hates. The N64 Mario Kart was by far the best of the Mario Kart games and it seems that Jeff hates it because people seem to like that one the most. He hates Halo 2 even though that was the best one. He hates Final Fantasy, hates Monster Hunter, hates Sonic (which I get but still), hates WoW, not only in video games but he hates Star Wars, Alien, Predator, basically everything but old ass cartoons and Star Trek . Is there anything other than a few limited fighting games, burnout paradise, Modern Warfare, and Persona 4 that Jeff doesnt hate?

Quality is great.
