WTF, Brad sounded really weird when he said "Yes" at 0:09!

I'm just so impressed with ModNation Racers now, that all other kart racers look bland and boring to me.

Arghh, where is my Deadly Premonition QL?

Edited by Hot_Karl

This game looks actually pretty sick, yo. I dug Sega Superstars Tennis a ton as well. Apparently Sega is good at taking well-established franchises, ripping them off and inserting fan service up the wazoo. They should do more of that. I'd like to play a Sega Superstars Golf  or Sonic's All Star Baseball one day.

Why does Sonic need a car?

ps3 exclusive should have been the edelwisse!

This game is great.

I'm digging the track design.

All these Dreamcast characters... why do Sega act like the 16-bit era never occurred? Where's my god damn Streets of Rage 4?

Is it just me, or have there been a lot of racing games in focus lately?

Total opposite for me, ModNation looks pretty bland compared to this.  
 
The environments in MN are so boring, This game has so much stuff going on in the background and the power ups seem awesome. After the Blur and Sonic QL i have lost all interest in ModNation.

My sentiments exactly.
 
"Yo, I'ma make it Jiggy Rain all up in this club!"

PLEASE don't judge the gameplay by this QL. 
 
No offence to Jeff, but he sucks hard at this and was playing it all wrong. The game is based around boosting, something you can and should achieve every time you drift, but it seemed Jeff was simply tapping the drift button instead of holding it. On top of that, you can also boost by performing tricks every time you're in the air, which Jeff also missed on doing. One of the best parts of this game is its sense of speed, which is completely lost in this QL because of Jeff's newbness.

yea

 Jiggy Rain... The sequel to Heavy Rain.. I'm calling it!

Posted by Aska

Now all I can imagine is a Sony racer, between Ratchet, Kratos, Sackboy, and Nathan Drake.
 
Sony please do this.

Sega Dollar Symbol FTW!

Also why is Sonic's speed attribute not full?
Posted by Jeffk38uk

Having played a chunk of it, have to admit its surprisingly a very good kart racer. Annoyingly the PC version has no online multiplayer of any sort.

Posted by Chibi_Kaji

I had to laugh when Jeff use that Giant Missle and didn't notice you had to detonate it.

Posted by AllanIceman

Look ok

Posted by Sanaj

Samba de Amigo level was a bit surprising.
It looks like a competent Mario Kart clone.
 
The lack of Starlight zone music is a bit disappointing.
The fact that Big the Cat is a racer is very disappointing.

Posted by Rhaknar

holy shit thats a ton of chars and tracks to buy, i love stuff like that...the game is also cheaper than most games here in europe, might get this!

Posted by RobotHamster

For the PS3 why not Welkin or Alicia from Valkyria Chronicles? That was an exclusive and made by sega, it makes sense.

Posted by SaucyJack

Good game, just wish there was some Daytona USA tracks.

Posted by TsuHai

I hoped it would feature a Condemned car with Printing-Press-Special
Posted by JackSukeru

I remember back around the time of the original Metal Gear Solid, I used to imagine a kart racing game with snake and all the bosses in it. 
 
That would still be pretty dope.

Posted by Konanda

Zobio and Zobiko are the main characters in a House of the Dead parody/spin-off that was released last year in Japan and focuses on a love story between the two zombies. Although it's still hella light gun shooter. That's probably why Brad and Jeff had no idea what that game is.  
 
Also House of the Dead is banned in Germany and that is why they refer to the series as Curien Mansion in this game.

You need to contact Konami immediately. That would be so awesome.

Because 3D sonic is hard to control, also he'd probably be too fast.
Posted by Castro

I'm kinda surprised at the lack of Toejam and Earl. Also, who else remembers Chakan: The Forever Man?

Posted by Jeffsekai

They should have put Bayonetta in this

Edited by dbz1995

Wish it had Shinobi from Shinobi III. That would be AWESOME

I think each game scratches a different itch. Sonic is a straight-up throwback, fan-service filled kart racer. Blur is the evolution of the arcade racer- basically if Need for Speed had guns and power-ups. Modnation is for the people who want to build and create new levels and cars, which explains why the normal maps lack personality. It's up to you to make something fresh and new. I'm interested in all three games actually. 
 
I want to see a QL of Split/Second as well. That game intrigues me, but it seems like it'll be overshadowed by Blur. It's the inFamous/Prototype debacle of 2009 all over again.

Not drifting enough!

Edited by Bartman3010

I'm sure someone already said this, but the producer of the game said they were only going to make one version of the game released across all territories. So they changed the name of "House of the Dead" to "Curien Mansion" because House of the Dead is banned in Germany!
 
Edit: Also, theres no All Star Moves online. Kind of a bummer, isnt it?
