A little dissapointed that we have to wait 2 weeks for new DLC only for it to be something that was already made available. If you guys want to release the preorder mods thats fine but there should also be something new for the people who already have this mod

make kratos , nathan, rachet for DLC…….or make the codes not expired…….come on guys….. keep up the good work…..

+ PuppetShoJustice on August 16th, 2010 at 2:54 pm said:

I see you guys still don’t care that the game has devolved into D4D with a side of racing rather than a racing game with a side of creation.

Maybe someday XP Series will be a productive means of gaining XP again.


10

+ GGod0 on August 16th, 2010 at 2:56 pm said:

@9 it only devolves into D4D if ppl agree to that BS, which probably means their creations suck


11

+ GGod0 on August 16th, 2010 at 2:58 pm said:

I have better things to do than camp out at my computer refreshing the page every 10-20 seconds waiting for these codes, i could be getting the last 2 Bioshock 2 trophies or something


12

+ PuppetShoJustice on August 16th, 2010 at 2:59 pm said:

@10 it devolves into D4D because a download is worth far, far more credit towards reaching level 30 than actually racing is.

The act of multiplying Create XP awarded by TWENTY made racing an irrelevant way to progress towards the level cap. It’s far more effective spending your time promoting your work in other ways than it is actually playing the game.

I second the motion: Totally Awesome!

Is UFG working on another title? How about ModNations II! Or a Game of The Year edition?


14

+ GGod0 on August 16th, 2010 at 3:01 pm said:

@12 I know that, but D4D could be avoided if the people asking for it could make decent creations…..and not ask, and the people agreeing to it would say no.

This is why im not getting Platinum in LttleBigPlanet EVER and in MNR anytime soon.

I really wish we wouldn’t be teased with Kratos, Drake, and Ratchet & Clank any more. Unless today’s codes can be redeemed multiple times, no one will get them unless they are very quick.

ModNation Racers is 3 months old, & I think it’s time to no longer make them pre-order exclusives anymore. People like me really want them, and have been waiting for “future DLC announcements” only to be disappointed every time.

I hope I don’t come off as rude, but there have been other pre-order bonuses for other games made available to the public faster than these.


17

+ GGod0 on August 16th, 2010 at 3:04 pm said:

@14 forget that the whole problem could be avoided if people weren’t whiny little baby about their creations arent being downloaded, to those who do that I ask, Have you ever thought they dont get downloaded because they suck?

+ TheAlbraskan on August 16th, 2010 at 3:05 pm said:

So is ModNation@Playstation.Sony.com an email address which we submit videos or pictures to?

how much did the game sell worldwide?


25

+ PuppetShoJustice on August 16th, 2010 at 3:11 pm said:

@17; the issue is that the community is being driven AWAY from actually racing one another properly.

This is -precisely- why you see small groups banding together to boost one particular Mod or Kart onto the Hot Mods pedestals.

Downloads are far better XP for far less effort. And the quality of one’s creations don’t actually matter. Many players are making dummy accounts to download their own creations over and over again because the system in place rewards doing so.

I don’t see any reason why racing should take a backseat in a kart racer other than UFG being able to brag about how many creations get made when they push for players to Create & Share rather than actually Play. Which, I thought, was the the main focus point of the Play, Create, Share model of game development.

+ GGod0 on August 16th, 2010 at 3:14 pm said:

@24 the problem is people are a$$inine cheap maggots that don’t want to work for their Platinum Trophy, can we leave it at that?

+ PuppetShoJustice on August 16th, 2010 at 3:21 pm said:

@25; I’m unsure I’d call hours burned making dummy accounts, downloading, wiping, and repeating that process over and over an unwillingness to work.

It surely isn’t the way the system was intended to work. I wish only to see a system in which people feel it worthwhile to actually be on the tracks. The entire online racing aspect of the game feels like an afterthought under the way things currently work.
