ModNation Racers: Fun Never Goes Out Of Style

ModNationMonday

but these have…

2012 “Jumped The Shark List

  • Zombies
  • Cupcakes
  • The current bacon frenzy *
  • Meme’s
  • Trolling
  • LOL, ROFL, TTYL, YOLO, BRB and of course BFF
  • Saying “that would make a great name for a band”
  • The term “Jump The Shark”
  • Athletes who claim “it’s not about the money”
  • … almost forgot planking! Definitely planking

One thing though, that never gets tired is fun and the ModNation franchise of games (PS3, PSP, Vita) ooze fun! (Actually that would make a great name for a band: “Oozefun”. Maybe “oozephun”? You’re welcome).
I’m sure you and my boss are both wondering the same thing… why do I bring this up?

Let me tell you… ModNation Racers Two-Year Anniversary Celebration Coming Soon!

The ModNation Racers Two-Year Anniversary (ModNationpaloozatwo) is only days away and it’s going to be a blast! We are working hard to put together a fun month of events surrounding our May 25th Anniversary. Let’s put aside our troubles and our 9-5 lives and just have a fun time! Play-Create-Share FTW!

We would love your input on some upcoming events…

  1. All-Time Favorite User Created PS3 Tracks?
  2. Favorite Track Name? (ie funniest, best pun, spelling, etc…)
  3. Favorite UFG or San Diego Studio Track?

So far (two months in) it looks like ZlheckJr and Punishthem420 are the “Road Trip” top racers to beat. Can you beat them? I’m sure they are up for the challenge!

* please note – I am a HUGE fan of bacon both literally and figuratively. I think it was the bacon toothpaste or the bacon taco that put it over the top.

Did you enjoy this?

There is no apostrophe in “memes” ;)

Oh Marina, how little I had realized I missed you on the go. =D Thanks bunches for these fine “ports” and new profile panels. ;)

Also, still no way to contact the dev team (or at least the localisation team)? I still haven’t found Earth and Mercury in Stockholm. |=3

You’re wrong about zombies… and the apostophe that shouldn’t be in “memes”.. but huge kudos from me for the line from one of my favourite films, “The Jerk”!
