Greetings and Happy MNR, um, Thursday everyone!

ModNation Racers: ModNation Monday

First off, as you may have already seen, the long-awaited Gopher hit the PlayStation Store yesterday. If you’re ready to hit the track with the flavor of the links, check him out. The Gopher Mod comes with a Golf Hat, Gopher Nose, and a Sweater Vest, and his Kart includes the Golf Kart Body and Golf Kart Seat.

MNR Double XP Week

Finally, while we’re taking care of our dedicated community, let’s keep piling it on. We’re going to be having another Double XP week! That’s right – From Tuesday, October 26th through Monday, November 1st, put the pedal to the metal and double your rewards. See you on the track!

MNR Halloween themed creations contest

Submit your original Halloween themed Karts, Mods, and Tracks here for a chance to win a free Mod and Kart. The winner’s creations will be showcased in November’s first ModNation Monday blog.

MNR Creations of the Week

Amazing creations in ModNation get shared every day and we are playing a ton of them. If you are interested in submitting your mod, kart or track to be a future “creation” of the week be sure to visit up on the official ModNation Community site and who knows? You might see your handy work on the PlayStation.Blog.

Mod of the Week

Mod Name: Badimo
Creator: Stitchless

Badimo

If there is life on other planets and they are cage fighters, this guy is one of them. The lifeless black eyes and spiraling of razor wire make it pretty clear that he’s not to be messed with. If you download him, I suggest that you don’t lose. I don’t think he’ll like it….

Kart of the Week

Kart Name: Meltdown
Creator: Icandy55

Meltdown

Apparently demons can be gangsta rappers. One look at this Kart, and you’ll understand why. From the anguished airbrushed face on the hood front to the beating heart engine in the back, this ride is all freaky. Throw in that wood grain finish for a touch of class, and you’ve got a whip that’s fit for even the most discerning demonic taste.

Track of the Week

If you have a video(s) of your track submit them to MNR’s YouTube channel by emailing ModNation@Playstation.Sony.com and we will include them in the blog if your track is showcased.

Track Name: Alphorma
Created by: Adie23

Alphorma

Alphorma 2 Alphorma 3

Adie23 says “This once peaceful coastal city is now home to jumps, traps, tight turns and barrels of doom”

This track isn’t hyper-populated with props all over the place and it isn’t super long, and I think those are the reasons it shines. There are turns that have to be carefully negotiated, there are boost pads that may or may not be worth going for (Adie23 was sneaky about that in a couple of spots), and there’s enough air, drift opportunities, and pods to keep you boosting and competitive in some quick and dirty races.

Hot Lap Roster for this week

Continuing with the trend we started weeks ago this weeks Hot Lap roster features all new community created tracks.

Monday: Gobi Desert, by C_Smith
Tuesday: Spring Water Falls, by Yika
Wednesday: Twin Mountain Rally v2, by blizzardmx-5
Thursday: Kingdom Of The 4th Dragon, by Generic_Oval
Friday: Marketcrash, by Flamestalker-NL
Saturday: Mystery Track
Sunday: Mystery Track

More news next week, until then… see you in the ModSpot!

can i suggest that the XP users get from races/creating be permanently set to the amount that is divvied out during double XP week? it seems insane to me that you need to get 250,000 XP to get to level 30 from level 29 and all you get from being 1st place in a race is 50 XP. i’m generally okay with having to grind, but if it means having to spend several weeks just to advance one rank….

Hey there, just wondering what’s going on with the new DLC in EU (and anywhere else it’s not on the Store).

It wouldn’t be a problem to wait but, as you said, it’s FREE for 2 WEEKS ONLY and if it appears in 2 weeks it wouldn’t be fair, would it?

So will the EU get it in the 2 WEEKS period?

Thank you, have a nice day/night.

Hi, I’m from Australia and I would like to know, where is the DLC?

I’ve been checking constantly over the last several days, and to my disappointment, still no free DLC. IS this DLC actually going to be released for free in Australia (and other countries for that matter) and not just the US.

It is extremely unfair, I paid just as much (if not more, knowing the inflated game prices in AU) for this game. So why am I missing out?

I was willing to pay for the current DLC that are available on the PSN Store (Gopher, etc) but now I don’t think I will. Why should I support the game when I get treated with less respect due to my location? If this game is to be sold in countries other than the US, then we should get treated equally.

I paid just as much for this game.

If DLC isn’t going to be released internationally, please make it very very clear that it is for the US only. Oh, and it would be nice to provide everyone who doesn’t live in the US an explanation as to why they are missing out.

Any idea when this will be released/available in the EU store? Been waiting a while… near 3 weeks now since it was announced.
