206w ago - Today SCEA's Associate Product Marketing Manager Chuck Lacson has shared a video spotlighting ModNation Racers PS3 Artist Huck Gee, as follows:

The guys in United Front Games weren't just inspired by the art and toys of the Urban Vinyl scene, they loved how the movement gave talented people a new way to express themselves. It gave artists a new way to be seen and to get recognized for their talents.

We hope ModNation Racers will be a way people can share their imagination with the world, just like these artists got to do with vinyl toys.

This week, the Artist Spotlight stays in the world of Urban Vinyl to meet another one of its superstars, Huck Gee.

In this Spotlight, Huck shows us some of his favorite toys, boots up ModNation to bring his "Skullhead" character to life, and STILL has time to have a RACE with fellow vinyl artist, Jesse Hernandez!





Huck not only has made a sweet career designing toys for companies like Kidrobot, but is one of the few vinyl artists featured in the Museum...

207w ago - SCEA Associate Product Marketing Manager Chuck Lacson has shared a video spotlight today on ModNation Racers PS3 artist Jesse Hernandez, where the designer showcases his "vinyl addiction" among other things.

To quote: To kick off ModNation May, we are bringing you a new Artist Spotlight!

After seeing some of the gaming industry's top talent and development icons take ModNation for a spin, our next Spotlight takes us to a completely different scene.

ModNation definitely has a unique art style, and if you've seen any of ModNation's behind-the-scenes videos, you might know the look of the game was inspired by the Urban Vinyl art movement.

No one knows this scene better than artist Jesse Hernandez, the man behind Immortal Studios and host of Vinyl Addiction, a show that covers the designer toy scene.





We spent sometime with Jesse, not only get a bit of insight on the scene and to explore his art,...

208w ago - SCEA Associate Product Marketing Manager Chuck Lacson has posted up the next in their ModNation Racers PS3 Artist Spotlight videos today: Sucker Punch rebuilds Empire City.

To quote: Just like the past two weeks, we're kicking the week off with a new Artist Spotlight video. Last week we had the mind behind Twisted Metal and God of War, David Jaffe, give us his uncensored opinion about making games and his thoughts on ModNation Racers (okay, it was kinda censored).

If you visited GameSpot at all last week, then you might have learned that we handed a copy of the game to the talented folks at Sucker Punch Productions to see what they could do with the ModNation creation tools.

So what happens when the crew responsible for the PS2 classic Sly Cooper franchise and the recent PS3 hit inFAMOUS decide to have some fun in ModNation?

Empire City gets rebuilt... ModNation-style!





This is an example of what happens when you combine some time and imagination...

209w ago - SCEA's Associate Product Marketing Manager Chuck Lacson has shared a fresh ModNation Racers video today spotlighting PS3 artist David Jaffe.

To quote: I'm happy to bring to you our next installment of our Artist Spotlight series.

Last week, Insomniac Games' Ted Price showed us that it only takes a few minutes and some imagination to create girlfriends for Ratchet and Clank. This week, we are happy to bring you someone else's take on ModNation Racers.

Making games is tough. Making blockbuster multi-million selling games is even tougher! Not many understand that more than David Jaffe, the talented and "outspoken" mind behind the Twisted Metal franchise and a little game called God of War.

The founder of Eat Sleep Play and the voice behind davidjaffe.biz took a break from his latest project to chat about the challenges of game development, seeing his characters getting the "Mod" treatment, and his reactions to games like LittleBigPlanet and ModNation.





Who's next on the spotlight? We'll find out next ModNation Monday!
