More Blur Beta Thoughts

Been playing more of the blur beta, and it's still a ton of fun. There are a few issues, mostly the lobby system crapping up every now and again, but then the actual game part is fantastic. There's only one thing that troubles me, and I think there should really be a term for it. When you're up front in a thick pack, and get hit by a power up slowing you down such that everyone behind you passes you, each hitting you with a power up as they pass quickly putting you in critical condition. I've went from 2nd to last like this. It's just painful. Sorta wish it rewarded me with fans for getting halfway up the pack after having a train pulled on me though, it'd make it a lot more manageable. 
 
Still, it's been really fun and I really can't wait for the full game. I've not enjoyed the demos of Splinter Cell and Just Cause 2, so I think I'll be picking this gem up come May. Also, Lead and Gold if it came out on Xbox Live Arcade, that game looks rad.
