ModNation Monday: Alien Invasions Are a Good Thing

I recently discovered a fun user-created track Meteor Base Attack by OnePoppa) only days after the release of the new Alien Invasion Mini-Theme DLC in which the following happened…

  • I jumped through the rear end of an alien space ship (always fun)
  • Avoided an alien ship shooting its destructive laser beam at me in hopes of frying my kart (succeeded)
  • Had a disembodied glass-enclosed alien head shooting fireworks at me from an Army tank
  • Escaped yet another alien spaceship trying to warp me up into its belly for who knows what “scientific reason” (this also happened in my early 20s)
  • I leapt over the planet Jupiter (always been a dream of mine) and drifted around the rings of Saturn!

And oh yeah… all in the first lap! INSANITY I say! Good, clean, insane INSANITY!!!

Please let us know if you find any recent track gems like this using any new DLC by visiting our forum here.


Medieval Mini-Theme will be available to purchase in the PlayStation Store this Tuesday, July 19th for $6.99!

It looks like it’s time for some of the MNR D&D (not D4D) clan to come out of hiding. Bust out your harps and lutes, polish up your suit of armor and grab that tunic out of the laundry because it’s a Renaissance Faire ModNation style!

Now you can place that drawbridge over your moat, surround your fortress with trebuchets and cannons, or just hang out at the local tavern’s banquet table. Any way you set it up you’ll truly become the “king of da castle”. (Note – ModNation not responsible for any damage inflicted to nearby villages through unsupervised use of your town’s trebuchets or battering rams). Check it out here.


Gladiator Parts Pack is available to purchase in the PlayStation Store now for $4.99! Like we said before, “why buy this? Two words Trojan Horse!” Done and done! :-)

ModNation Racers: totw

Hot Lap Tracks:
Monday: Sham’s Desert Oasis v1.1 by ShamgarBlade (I am going to be looking for more great tracks to come from ShamgarBlade. You made what I consider a quintessential desert oasis track. wOOt!).
Tuesday: Downtown Derby by EvilPinata (Possibly my favorite Big City DLC track do far. It felt like a living, breathing metropolis, realistic, yet fun at the same time).
Wednesday: The Arctic Chill by StealthReborn– (“Q: Hey Mark, I’m all about the racing. Who will not disappoint?”… A: StealthReborn—).
Thursday: Elite Hidden Tsina Temple by RockToonz (I’m starting to understand why his tracks start with the word elite!).
Friday: Exotic Expressway (Fixed) by VintageOctopus (the title worried me but the track delivered a very fun race through and through).
Saturday: ALIENS VS DINOSAURS by RADBOYROB (I honestly did a spit take when I saw a dinosaur chewing on the Rings of Saturn!).

Kart of the Week: Flame Thrower Joe’s Jeep by Shelbot3001

Mod of the Week: Flame Thrower Joe by Shelbot3001
I was actually frightened for my fellow competitors in races when this Mod would lean over the side of his Kart extending his flamethrower directly in my opponent’s face. Shelbot3001, what’s next for gosh sake? You rock!

ModNation Racers: cotw

More goodies next week people!

Until Monday, Earthlings,
