Now let’s jump into what’s happening this week
Ready to “Party Hardy” in 2011?
It’s a new year, and I imagine that some of you partied BIG this time, no? Well, if you did it anything like some people I know did (not me, of course….), you’re probably still recovering. So why not celebrate your condition with this week’s Mod, Party Hardy,the Mod who brings the party wherever he goes? Just back from an after hours soiree, Party Hardy comes with the following creation parts. :
- Lampshade Hat
- Messy Shirt
- Noise Maker (**does not actually make noise)
Download Party Hardy from the PSN Store starting Tuesday, January 4th ($.99) and relive all those hard partying days that you can’t quite remember. …and bring me some aspirin, please.
Go East, Young Mod
Looks like you’ve been enjoying the Far East Track Theme. Just as we’d hoped, there are some really impressive creations out there using Far East parts, and you continue to blow us away with what you’re doing. Rest assured – There’s more to come.
ModNation 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 PS Blog.
With the release of all the new parts packs, we want to see your tracks with those new props in them.
Mod and Kart of the Week
Mod Name: Resistence 3 Chimera
Kart Name: Resistance 3 ver 2
Coker’s Comment: Wow…. There’s a lot of attention to detail, a painstaking airbrushed look on the paint job, and clearly a lot of well thought out effort in this Mod and Kart. I can’t help but have an attitude when I drive this combo, and when the race is hot and heavy and I unleash that Hydra on the pack in from of me, propelling myself into the lead…..it’s magic. Bravo, AMOCAT08. Quality work here.
Track of the Week
Track Name: Arid Ciudad
Created by: TheQK
TheQK Says: “Start off in the sewers of a luxury desert city to end off in an arid wasteland. Fight your way back to the city through the desert using, shortcuts, weapons and boost.”
Coker says: Oh, HECK yes! To me, one of the more important aspects of game design is Risk VS Reward. And this Track exemplifies that in its design. For example, you can take your chances driving along the top of a narrow pipe with boost pads on it to reach the nutty jump at the end of it, or you can take the low road beneath it and pick up and item pod or two; you can take that downhill blind left turn tight and try to shave some time…. Well, I won’t spoil the discovery of racing this Track for you, but it is brilliantly designed, and in addition to being a great Track for competitive racing, it also provides a great opportunity to challenge yourself and improve your skills. I’m very impressed with this one.
Track Name: London Calling
Created by: athiestsw
Athiestsw says: “Take a tour of London’s West End, taking in Buckingham Palace, Green Park, The Ritz Hotel, St. James Sq, Picadilly Circus, Trafalgar Sq, Marble Arch and of course the iconic Big Ben. Watch out for modbots that police the wide highways and beware the final moving bridge that could quite easily ruin your perfect run at the last moment!
A track long in the making, this is a collaborative effort between myself and the legend that is puppethand666. If it wasn’t for his brilliantly OCD attention to detail and ability to plan from scratch this track would have never been. Plus he made an awesome avant-garde representation of Big Ben and the Houses Of Parliament”)
Coker says: I learned three things from racing on this track. 1) It’s awesome. 2) I really need to get to London (preferably in a racing Kart). 3) I hate Modbots. Brilliantly put together, this Track is a beautiful blend of nail-biting moments mixed with victory shout-inducing moments. There are huge jumps, nice drift opportunities, shortcuts that keep things fresh, and plenty more that make this a must-race Track. Check it out, and you will NOT be disappointed.
