NSC 17 - Surf's Up! - Race Report
Blasting along the beaches, Cirrus5005 kicks sand all over the competition! Not sure if the Big Kahuna can woo the girl on the bonnet with his impressive tales of Motorstorm prowess, but it's worth a shot, I guess! Yet the real story this time is the little surfer girl, herself... Xx-Miss-April-xX came within a split second of taking the whole thing - and her purple aloha van with matching boost and a sweet sound system looked the part. Cowabunga! Close in their wake was jagerade, Russein and Danipsv - seconds behind...
Far beyond the breaking waves back in California, Russein pipped jerony by the absolute tightest of margins - awesome. Jagerade was right there filling their rear view mirrors too.
And further over in the dry? Tumbleweed...

All FIVE MotorStorm games are now on the NSC...
Check it out!
I've put some thought and time into streamlining the spreadsheet even further, and now all games' events are on one page so it's easier than ever.
This week's event is the "Take Five" - perhaps not exactly what Dave Brubeck had in mind -but I'm sure you'll get the reference.

Hi ToaNuva- no prob at all. You're 100% welcome to race. Mistakes happen... no big deal. Cheers for signing up!
It's great to see interest in the AE races. Unfortunately my 60gb early PS3 just ylod'd this week, so I can't race, myself! Might get a hairdryer out and see if I can revive it...
Look forward to seeing you in the Arctic,

Hi, you can do them now if you'd like. I'm halfway through my MV ones at the moment.
You've got until Thursday night midnight UK time to get them up. Seems a few people are running AE this time so that's all good! I must confess I really don't know most of those tracks at all - haven't played in something like a year and I never even got all the way through the festival in the first place. Man, it's a cool game though!

Really good racing this week on all five MotorStorm games - sweet!
By midnight, 35 sets of times had been entered - with the new layout on one page it's great to see just how much NSC-ing actually goes on each week!
Emerging from the shadows of the standing red stones, Chigro re-appeared in a swirl of dust and laid waste to his challengers... Good 'ole killercrusher232 shook his streak and crushed me into the earth, too... 'Course, I'm the first to admit that I don't know anything at all about the MV tracks... But hey - good fun even if I did overboost about a million times - you sure don't get much max time, do you?
On the island, the top times were spread out widely, and the winner wasn't obvious until the totals were revealed... Nevertheless, in the end Etnies_1996 put in solid runs for a pretty clear win. Well deserved, too - as only he could truly tame the rusty old factory in the fields! Hburg wasn't fastest on any track, but his conistency was rewarded with a 2nd place. Cirrus5005 had a couple of seriously fast runs... but in the end his treecrash/apollo moon launch cost him dearly, shuffling him back to third. Funny enough, I actually more-or less survived sugar rush with a pretty awesomely wild roof jump and a sorta-successful cane run... Ha!
On the ice, ToaNuva, BNAMN and Chigro showed how it's done. Nevertheless it'd be cool to see some videos, guys! There are very few AE videos around, and it'd be great to see some of that mastery in action....
In the city, Jerony pipped Evildoofus by a fraction of a second. But, Evil gets some serious kudos for awesome music, as always. Cool 50/50 grind with the supercar on the top of a skyscaper too - check her vid! Chigro was right behind in third.
Scaled down, the competition was pretty tight, with Russein taking the win followed by Snake55wildcat (no motion control on this one, wild man!) and BNAMN. Neat!
Well, I hope everyone's enjoyed this week's NSC - we've got pretty much everything covered now! And did anyone go for the 5x5 - well yes... I did! Who's joining in next time?
Next week's events are 100% set up by the randomiser - so yes - there is DLC... Bring it on!
