#432210 The MacGameStore Holiday Sale has begun!

Posted Frigidman™ on 19 December 2014 - 10:58 AM


The Holiday Sale includes hundreds of popular (and unpopular?) games on sale! All manner of stuff to get for your beloved, hated, or friend or otherwise.

Every day there will be flash sales, so be sure to keep an eye on that section. Something you are waiting for could drop like a rock in price!

Also, a bundle of games will be showcased on the home. New bundles are planned throughout the two weeks of sales.

As a small business owner myself...

I say, if there's sufficient cash for it, go for #3. If not, kill the IMG site and kill the MGS forums and merge the IMG forum with the MGS.

An active, friendly community forum for a dead news site and a dead forum for an active retail store site, all run by the same entity, makes extremely little sense both from a business and a workload perspective. I would like to see IMG survive, but if worse comes to worst, taking the active site and pairing it with the active forum seems the best option.

EDIT: And if you DO do that... for the love of all that is holy, don't just tell everyone here to move. This place's long history of discussion and problems solved makes it a cornucopia for searches. That's a big asset.

Whenever I click it, it keeps telling me I have reached my limit for votes today. Yet, I have never voted a thread ever before lol. I guess there is a bug somewhere, or setting I have set too strict haha.
OK, I've fixed this.  Members, Admins, IMG Writers, Developers, and IMG Pro members should be able to vote on the topics.  Let me know if you are in one of these groups and cannot a vote a post up or down.  That said, I not sure what use this feature will have, but here it is.  Each person gets 5 votes up and 5 votes down per 24 hour period.  Let me know if you think that is too much or too little.  I think the votes should be limited or it will be abused.

Oh burn!  Dude that was a burn.  Burn dude.  Burn.

Anybody that wants to write reviews or news I can add to their own group for the permissions.  I've already created the IMG Writers group, I can adjust their perms to create new threads in the IMG News section, anyone can post a reply.  That group is simple to duplicate as an IMG Reviewers group.  One person can have perms for both forums or just one depending.  This is all junk I've done before.  I hate to see the news and reviews go.  That is good stuff because the writers are real gamers and not industry todies.

Unfortunately this is still the internet.

You could mail me your reviews and I could scan them in, though.

Please choose any option that keeps this forum open. I haven't posted here in a couple years as children and life just overwhelmed me and pushed me further way from gaming and social cyberspace, but I always liked this forum and it's members (glad to see most of you are still here) and came back here tonight for some old knowledge that likely doesn't exist anywhere else on the webz anymore. This forum community deserves to live on....

Does anyone else see this as being basically Team Fortress 2 skinned by Blizzard, then? Or is that simply me being jaded and curmugeonly at this point?

#428195 The End of Halo Online [UPDATE: Or not!]

Posted devoid7 on 16 May 2014 - 12:01 AM

I posted a Mac patch that can be downloaded from http://macgamingmods...hp?f=43&t=18764 - it uses the new master server. If you might remember I had also posted a patch so that Halo would run under Mavericks a while back. Besides this there is still HaloMD which has never used or relied on gamespy.

#426173 Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 coming for Mac?

Posted Aspyr-Blair on 27 February 2014 - 01:58 PM

I have no idea what you guys are talking about, but it sure would be cool if both titles finally made their way to the Mac ;)

#433137 Star ... StAr ... STAR ... ! ! !

Posted the Battle Cat on 25 February 2015 - 09:31 AM

I blame social media institutions such as Facebook for creating a generation of "Like" junkies, with little other meaning in their life as important.  One can't get self esteem from others, it must come from within from hard work, dedication and accomplishment.  Everybody wants the fame without the pain, but they will find that fame IS the pain.

Edit:  Would someone please give me beans for this!  I mean this is profound stuff!  It's worthless without your beans!!!!

In the movie industry this is known as "The Phantom Menace Assumption." :-)

#432171 Broken Forum Update

Posted Frigidman™ on 17 December 2014 - 07:34 PM

A new security update for the IPB forums caused the entire posting mechanisms to fail. Apologies on not being able to post anything there for a bit. I have reverted back to a prior version of files, and am waiting for IPB to pull their thumbs out of their asses and actually make a proper security patch that doesnt crash everything.

Is your computer plugged in? This is very common mistake.

1) Header revamp!
2) Kill the network button bar.
3) Bounce all traffic on IMG home to IMG Forum home.

Sometime later:

1) Parse all old reviews into forum topics.
2) Shift forum url path to BE the root path.

Well, the time they are a-changing.

Whatever happens, I'll never thank you enough for the excellent site and forum you provided us with.

#431406 Stop being a Steamboi, they will eventually screw you over.

Posted Frost on 31 October 2014 - 07:03 PM

I've been brought around to liking Steam, but there's a reason I try to buy all my games on sale unless I must have them. I'm aware there is potential, however small, of someone being able to deny me access to stuff I bought without actually coming into my place and destroying property. Call it limiting potential for any future loss.

I'm not comfortable with it, but there's no other option at the moment. Physical PC/Mac games not absolutely tied to a digital account somewhere are getting fewer and further between. Why I'm not gonna chuck my PS4 just yet, with its ability to play anything I stick in it even if my PSN account got nuked one day.

And is this the non-traditional RPG that was referred in the HD Remake thread or are we still expecting other RPG/RPG-like titles this year?

It most certainly is not :P
