@Vinny: A fix of what?
#4 Posted by Ututu222 (102 posts) -
@Vinny: I shall wait with bated breath :).

I like how the rear view mirror wobbles. Game looks neat.

#6 Posted by Pie (7059 posts) -

Beta what?

#7 Posted by Griddler (3344 posts) -

I've been looking forward to a video of this, there doesn't seem to be a whole lot of it out there.

Multiplayer structure seems very Modern Warfare-y, which is a good thing. And, Mario Kart, of course.
 
Just look out for Kotick. He'll fire your boss then eat you alive.

@Vinny:  No idea what you on about but still pumped.
#10 Posted by RampageAssassin (417 posts) -

It looks good but I hope the handling is like a arcade racer and not a sim.

#11 Edited by Trace (3551 posts) -

Man, I'm trying my hardest not to be excited by this game, but it's looking really interesting now. Talk about a slick style, and I'm liking the whole concept of fans and what earns them.
 
EDIT: OK, those mod options and good 20 player racing. That's neat stuff. I'm excited now.

@PsEG: I don't think you need to worry about it handling like a sim, it looks like it's Mario Kart with real cars. Which is AWESOME!

Very stylish and hectic. Have to remember the beta.

@Vinny: It's ok, Vinny. Take your time.
#19 Posted by Delta_Ass (3255 posts) -

I can't wait for the "beatah."

This is the Darksiders of Mario Kart

Cool, I'm a Giant Bomb memeber!
 
edit: they fixed it.

#24 Posted by Jackel2072 (2240 posts) -

i dont know man. il give the game a shot but it looks kind of underwhelming...

#25 Posted by clstirens (847 posts) -
@zudthespud:  I truly despise the phrase "stupid American." You don't see me going about on various boards announcing my opinions on other's intelligence. It's unfair.
 
But do tell me how I should speak. Is it "beetah?"  and if so, why the hell does that make us bumbling fools to use different PRONUNCIATION?

Awwww...I forgot it was for Xbox....I got a code. If anyone wants it tell me!  
 
I wont be near my 360 when it starts...

He said "Bee-ta"! He's really British!

#28 Posted by HydraHam (1338 posts) -

I tried signing up for the beta via the key from kotaku which worked but for some reason when i try to log in to verify its like yo duder password is wrong which it clearly isn't since i had it sent to me via email 3 times.. so then i thought maybe its the username then said ah screw it

#29 Posted by Flap_jackson (91 posts) -

It looks exactly like when I play Need For Speed on LSD, except for the fact Mario isn't there.
#30 Posted by Druminator (1676 posts) -

Hope GB is giving out beta codes this week!!!

#31 Posted by eclipsesis (1242 posts) -

I'm torn Split/second or Blur... 

#32 Posted by Reverseface (1221 posts) -

I keep thinking there on about Blur the band. THIS MADDNESS MUST STOP!

Woohoo. Thanks for the beta code. Interested in this yuppie mario kart game thingy.

#36 Posted by SuperfluousMoniker (2907 posts) -

Woah, it's a beautiful version of Mario Kart. Looks cool, but I wish there was more of a sense of speed.

#37 Posted by Hexogen (766 posts) -

Looks like Project Gotham meets Mario Kart. I really like the oversaturated look, and it's nice to see a racing game with such a high online player count.  Could be pretty cool. Guess I'll find out in the beetuh. Thanks for the code, GB!

#38 Posted by Kookro (109 posts) -

Whoa, the moment I went to the giant-bomb blur beta link it just gave me the code and said you're in! Is it like that for the first 1000 people who click the link or did I just get lucky?

#39 Posted by buzz_killington (3532 posts) -

The frame-rate is all sorts of messed up. Someone should tell these guys to look at Split/Second.

#40 Posted by Korosive (201 posts) -

Hmm... Reality based Mario Kart.... I'm interested. Definitely would play Split/second first though.

#41 Posted by Agent47CSim2 (1085 posts) -

Yes I got a key!!!

#42 Posted by Milkman (16543 posts) -

Got my code. Thanks Giant Bomb (dot) com!

#43 Posted by Rhaknar (5939 posts) -

no offense to bizarre creations or blur, but was this a game worth going to england to check on location? unless bizarre creations paid for the expenses, it seems weird

#44 Posted by cap123 (2477 posts) -

yay i'm in :] looks fun

#45 Posted by wrecks (2217 posts) -

I'm getting a Full Auto vibe. Cool style tho.

#46 Posted by DeathbyYeti (742 posts) -

aw man
my gold just expired and i plan to never renew it again
who wants a beta code

#47 Edited by Julchief (28 posts) -

wooh got into the beta, YEAH!
 
after the initial rush of awesomeness i got there, i'd like to thank giantbomb and bizzare, yay

#48 Posted by Shadow (4978 posts) -

and we're in

#49 Posted by ghostNPC (764 posts) -

I like the colour effects, otherwise this game isnt really all that original. Looks like a slower Extreme-G.

#50 Posted by animateria (3252 posts) -

That hair style... is he the British Brad?
 
Anyways, the game looks good, but the cars feel light. They just don't have that physical weight on them.
