Drive By Me, Get Smashed

Posted by MusePoetique (3 posts) -

I've always hated racing games.  Always.  Mainly because I could never get the controls.  Was this a problem with the games?  No.  Problem with my coordination.
 
I couldn't get into Mario Kart either.  I always ran off the side or fell in the ocean.  Always ended in last.  I just never got a handle on it.  
 
Along came Blur and something changed.  I don't know what it was but I'm actually enjoying a racing/Mario Kart game.  WTF???  AND I can play without ending up last (though I still do most of the time)  
 
Oh.  And I can paint my car pink.  Score.

 When I started playing, I loved painting my car pink because it was obnoxious.  Then I learned there was an achievement that required winning in a pink car (amongst other thing).  So as soon as I got that I had to move on to other pigment schemes.  Although if you take pink and set the intensity to almost fully dark it looks really cool.
