Since everyone was going kind of nuts over the prospect of hacking together a kart racing mode in TF2 using the new bumper cars, I figured now would be a good time to remind you that there's a real kart racer for PC already: Sonic and All-Stars Racing Transformed. What is it? Pretty much Mario Kart with Sega characters, and the occasional guest star — including Wreck-It Ralph. But instead of just racing cars on a track, your vehicle can also transform into a boat or a plane depending on the map, many of which even change from one lap to the next! The tracks are all based on Sega games, from Sonic to NiGHTS to Jet Set Radio, and the soundtrack kicks ass. It made me wish I had been a Sega kid growing up, because they sure made the games I'd never heard of before look awesome as hell. How much does it cost? I'm glad you asked, because... ...you can get it in a Humble Bundle for as little as $1 right now! Yep, Sega has partnered with Humble Bundle and is making Sonic and All-Stars Racing Transformed, the entire Dreamcast Collection, and NiGHTS Into Dreams available all for the low-low price of Upwards Of One Dollar. Plus if you pay more than the average, they'll throw in Empire: Total War and Company of Heroes 2, and if what you paid stays above the average long enough, they'll throw in some other stuff they haven't revealed yet! I hate Sega! I'm still pissed off at them over Aliens: Colonial Marines and/or the YouTube DMCA fiasco and/or ruining Sonic forever about seven times in a row. You don't have to give them a cent! You can forward your money along to charity and cut them out altogether. But I wanna race with TF2 characters. *pout* Ah, but you CAN! (Fun fact: When this was first leaked from a beta tester, people were swearing up and down that it must be a really clever mod. Fun times.) Sounds great! I want to play with the TF2Maps community! That's the idea. So here's what I'm thinking: If enough of us end up getting this, I'll see about setting up regular events where one of us (preferably with better Internet than me because it's P2P) hosts a game and invites everyone in the group chat who wants to join. There doesn't seem to be any other way to organize matches in this game, unfortunately, but at least it uses Steam and not some awful third party thing.
