ModNation Racers Road Trip: Do You Mod?

Fingers crossed the term above has no impending underground or urban double-meaning.

Either way, if you are not modding you should be. It’s a lot of fun! “Adults” can deny all they’d like, yet creating your own personal Mods in ModNation Racers: Road Trip (Vita) takes us back to those memorable, endless days of playing with our action figures and figurettes (some still do? oops, my bad).

Enjoy this very informative tutorial to help you create that ultimate Mod you have been dreaming of…

ModNation Racers Road Trip: Ch-Check It Out

Wha-what’s this all about, you say?

We’re talking some pretty sweet ModNation Racers: Road Trip exclusive unlockables, thank you for asking!
This past week I noticed that “Road Trip’s” Global Travel Points feature had really started to gain some notable momentum. “How does this affect me?,” again a great question. Well, if we all work together like the great nation we are, we will begin to see some of the 15 uber-cool Road Trip exclusive unlockables come to life.

Here is how it works…

Essentially the Mod Explorer feature in ModNation Racers: Road Trip allows you as an individual, and the community as a whole to be ultimately rewarded for each and every mileage check-in. The more Mod Explorer check-in’s you post, the more miles you accumulate, the more pieces you attain. Similarly, this goes for the community. When all of our miles are “pitched” together into the big Mod Explorer pot even more items become unlocked to use. Yahoo!

ModNation Racers Road Trip: “Pick Up And Play” Redefined

(He says with a smile…) As the self-appointed spokesperson for men everywhere I can personally attest to the widely unspoken truth than men indeed do some of their best work in their secondary “office.” In fact, had I been given permission to test there, I guarantee I would have scored 175-250 points higher on my S.A.T.’s leading to my unfulfilled dream of attending an “accredited” college. Since that dream has long passed me by, I am left with the dilemma: such a throne of inspiration and enlightenment now left to its utilitarian purpose, what to do? Left to task, those minutes can seem like an eternity. Put to proper use they can be redeemed into many leg-numbingly wonderful times!

The “Pick Up and Play” Gamers Oath:
On a bus, on a train. On a boat, on a plane.
On a ladder, or a stool. In a garden, by the pool.
Standing up, lying prone, or sitting quietly, on a throne.
