[edit] Background

Activision Publishing is set to revolutionize the racing genre with the debut of Bizarre Creations’ newest project, Blur-- the ultimate wheel-to-wheel racing action experience.

Beyond the action-packed racing filled with fast curves, sneaky alternate routes, hair-raising jumps and fully realized damage models that provide for spectacular crashes, Blur’s narrative is presented through Bizarre’s innovative new community-based interface, reaching far beyond the game itself. This unique story-driving social network evolves dynamically as players compete in different races, make new friends, rivals and fans, and connect with other racers both in-game and in real life.

[edit] Game Play

The game drops players into heart-pumping, electrified racing action with 20 cars on a track all targeting the finish line and battling each other as they trade paint and collect intense power-ups, including the ability to blast other cars out of the way with huge bursts of energy, boost their speed, and more.

While controlling photo realistic cars, gamers can use offensive and defensive attacks as they battle for the lead and careen through real-world track locations ranging from L.A. and San Francisco to the streets of Hackney, UK and the treacherous roads of Barcelona, Spain.

Looking beyond Blur’s single player story, gamers can engage in competitive and team-based multiplayer races with up to 20 players online, or on a single console via 4-player split-screen. Bizarre is especially excited to introduce Blur’s original social gaming experience – Custom Groups, where anyone can create unique multiplayer modes based on their favorite ways to play the game. These new modes are immediately shared through Blur’s social network, expanding the game in ways that are only limited by the gaming community’s creativity.

This game is also known as Blur Racerz in Japan.

Oh ho, what's this? A photo of an advert. You know those little cards you find in your video game cases now? The Dragon Age: Origins expansion Awakening came with one as well, with just the game's blood dragon and a date:


Could it be the sequel-prequel-we-don't-know-what? Dun, dun dun...

You want more random gaming goodness? Yes you do. Too tired to sound excited or anything like that, so you guys just get links. Yes, links. Links you can click to go somewhere else.

Probably the most anticipated review/game is God of War III for PS3, though XBLA's Scrap Metal is also up there. The first, you already know, and the second is a lovely little vehicular combat game by Slick, the people who made N+. Also note that our Blur multiplayer beta key giveaway is actually still active, even though the beta has already begun as of Monday. You can still get remaining keys here by just entering your email.
