I've been playing 'Mario Kart 8' for the last week, or so. The AI's cheap as hell at 150cc and the rubberbanding is still in full effect, which can make it frustrating at times, but not enough to keep me from playing it and coming back for more.

These are from two of my play sessions as Daisy (both at 150cc): the first is from a near flawless run on the Piranha Plant Slide, while the other highlights the exchange of blows between Daisy and Waluigi on the Bone-Dry Dunes course.

... ... I wonder if they realize that from some angles It looks like Daisy is only wearing a couple yellow straps (And NOT where they need to be for a G-rated game) and boots...

@Adamas: If you're going by youtube's picture quality... I dunno... maybe. :-\

But, during actual gameplay, you'd either have to be blind, or just trying really hard to imagine that she wasn't wearing a leather biker's outfit. Plus, when you're using a kart (rather than a bike) Daisy wears her dress instead. I prefer to use bikes 'cuz the handling is better and they make sharper turns than karts (which is crucial for shaving seconds off lap times and for maintaining your lead when playing against the AI at 150cc).

As for ESO I SO wanna play it but my comp would never handle it.

Started as new EU IV playthrough with a friend. Aragorn is the first to get crushed by the french/spanish alliance.

If you can run Skyrim then you can run ESO.

Not currently playing it, but Divinity Original Sin looks extremely interesting.

I've heard alot good things about that as well, but turn-based RPG's are't really my thing :S
ATM i'm playing Age of Mythology: Extended Edition as well as the MMO Neverwinter who is more addicting that i would have thought(the fact that i'm a Forgotten Realms lore buff also helps ;) )
I also found a unique tower defence game called Space Run thats very fun to play and even has a funny storyline in it as well :)

So far thats eneugh to keep me busy altrough i'm considering to buy Valiant Hearts:the great war since it seems a very emotional puzzle game(trailer made me cry to my own suprise) but i think i'll wait a little before i do that.

It's not fully TBS. Only the combat is turn-based (kinda like Jagged Alliance, x-com, etc). Rest of the time it acts like any other isometric rpg.

I'm really enjoying the game so far. Played it for a few days now and only just gotten out of the first town. (Gotta explore everything! :P)
