    Funny ad; but I still prefer my "cutesy" Kart game to the hardcore racing titles.

    Wow, there's some balls, attacking the most popular and widely played kart racer of all time. Incredibly stupid and childish, but ballsy. Race like a big boy? I used to hear failure kids at elementary school say stuff like that. [​IMG]

    Never heard of this game though. Interests me, but i wonder if the recent release and success of Sega Allstar Racing will spur a new influx of party combat kart racing games. There have been plenty in the past of course, but not quite as much lately.

    Blatant Nintendo fanboy? The game has power-ups/items, as well as multiple game modes besides just racing. It's a fast paced racing game with great gameplay.

    Hey I like Mario Kart.

    But I also tried Blur not too long ago (my friend told me to get it to play online demo) and it was pretty fun!! I actually like the powerups. Looks like a more like a mix of a regular racing game and wipeout to me XD

    Huh. Judging by what people are saying in comparison to Mario Kart, I think I'll try it. 1 Question, can you snake? [​IMG]

    I can see some digs at ModNation Racers too.

    Played the demo or whatever it was at me mates and I was unimpressed, seeing its from the people who did the Project Gotham Racing series I expected better.

    Split/Second Velocity was more fun.

    That was actually funny [​IMG] I don't see this game getting any better than Mario Kart though. They should release a PS3 demo, so I can try it.
