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.

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

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!

@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?

It looks exactly like when I play Need For Speed on LSD, except for the fact Mario isn't there.

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

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!

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?

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

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

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

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

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.
