Looking for a fun racing game for Xmas that a 7 year old girl can enjoy, playable on a 2017 macbook pro.
Multiplayer and external controllers a must.
1st choice would be sthg similar to Mario Cart with lots of funny characters etc.
Pls help! Thx
While we wait for this unfortunate banning incident to work out (:blush:), I can at least give you a recommendation: Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing might be exactly what you are looking for.

I technically finished this game a month ago but I'm procrastinating so:

Spec Ops the Line is outrageously good -- it might only work for gamers who are acquainted with the tropes of military shooter games but if you are, this is an instant classic. The actual gameplay mechanics are bland but all I can say without spoiling anything is that there are huge payoffs for soldiering through to the end. It's a major emotional experience.

Put it on your wishlist!
Agreed. It's one of the best games I played.

The Prestige Nightfall is locked behind the expansion which has rustled some feathers since you have to complete the prestige nightfall in order to get the platinum trophy on PS4 (or perfect gamerscore on Xbox). I don't care much about trophies but I know people who do care a lot about them and it is seriously a dick move by Bungie.

It's funny that this apparently comes back to bite Bungie in their arse: at least in some cases, owners of the digital console version were able to get a refund for the base game, as it apparently is regarded as "broken", since not all achievements/trophies are attainable without the expansion. :D


I think the main complaints about content being locked behind Eververse is due to them showcasing a lot of gear/emotes in the trailers for the expansion that apparently are only available via Bright Engrams.

There's nothing new about that. Bungie has done that as long as I can remember. Here just the trailer for the last Festival of the Lost mini expansion for Destiny 1, that shows almost nothing but stuff from Eververse.


Those things are just cosmetic, but it's frustrating to players to have those things being marketed as content when in reality they are locked behind either a super long level up grind, or a paywall.

Seriously, there's nothing "super long" about the level grind. I played three hours today, leveled up four times, and got one extra Bright Engram from a mission. The real problem lies in the drop rates of the contents: in all the Bright Engrams I got so far, I found exactly two pieces of these class items.

Seems like we were all wrong with that.
'Deus Ex: Mankind Divided' is now on the Radar (coming December 12) and the 'In A World of Tears' blip is gone from the radar.
Also, that social media teaser video was almost definitely for DX:MD.
What the hell, Feral? :angry:

They never locked any real portion of new content behind Eververse microtransactions either, ...
Maybe I'm missing something, but what content did they lock behind microtransactions? What I've seen so far, Eververse still only sells cosmetics.
