Blur weapons showed off in neon colors

10:00 AM on 10.11.2009 // Matthew Razak

Have you been wondering how upcoming arcade racer Blur was going to take kart racing weapons and make them super HARDCORE! Judging from the video above they're doing it with electricity and neon colors galore. We all know that things with bright neon colors and waves of electricity flying around are way cooler than, say, shells and banana peels. Pssssh, banana peels. That's a fruit not a weapon. LAME.

All right, I'm done, but in case you couldn't tell, Blur does not appeal to me at all and I don't really see the draw even when the producer of the game explains it to me. Maybe it was the crappy time I had with it at E3, but it did not stand out at all as something exciting. Those landmines in the video above worked oddly, the shunt worked poorly thanks to the game's poor controls and the nitro also failed for the same reason. Now I was playing a very early build, but nothing I've seen yet has convinced me that this game is anything to get remotely excited over. It's sad too, because the only racing games I'm really good at are the ones where you can shoot stuff at other cars. Come on Activision, change my mind.
