#434240 Apple does more damage to Macs than anything

Posted DirtyHarry50 on 15 May 2015 - 05:25 PM

I am annoyed that Apple refuses to make a tricked out desktop gaming rig with a cool case that has flaming apples on the sides and a special version of OS X where NOTHING is flat. I'd like this system to be a small tower but big enough to accommodate a full sized GPU card. The system should feature easy access for upgrades and repairs. The system specs should feature top end components selected with gaming in mind. It should come with 3 years of AppleCare standard. I would prefer it to be priced just slightly over the Mac Mini line. Apple has more money than they know what to do with. It is time that they gave back to the community, the neglected gaming community in particular.

I am a reasonable man. I only want what is fair.

#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.

I agree with that. To me, 30 fps is 'unplayable' no matter how gorgeous it may look.

I dont think this stance is elitist... I prefer smoother play than photorealism.

The ePeen is strong with this one. :teehee:

That said I'll take Nintendo's buttery smooth 60FPS stylized graphics over "photo realism" any day. Toss in they just make pure fun games, I play my Wii U more than anything these days.

#434683 Steam DB Watch

Posted Matt Diamond on 14 June 2015 - 10:46 AM

If you buy it on Steam and the Mac version doesn't come out within a month or two, the PC publisher gets the money even if you only play the Mac version.

My advice is, "Don't panic, it'll go on sale again." I can play something in my backlog while I'm waiting. And for all you know, there will be an even better sale on it 6 months from now. Worse comes to worse, you pay a little more when you finally cave.

Incidentally, although I rarely buy games on the Mac App Store, I do stock up on App Store gift cards when there's a sale. For example, sometimes I get a $100 gift card for $80 or $85. So everything I buy on the App Store or iTunes Store is effectively on sale. (Even better if the item itself is actually on sale.)

Maybe we should rename this thread to "Apple does more damage to Macs than anything".

Let me know how it is. Almost impulse bought it last night on Steam

#432007 Inside Mac Games - Rebirth

Posted the Battle Cat on 06 December 2014 - 09:30 PM

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?

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 ;)

#434976 ARK: Survival Evolved now on Mac/SteamOS

Posted Janichsan on 02 July 2015 - 08:41 AM

Buggy Early Access Multiplayer Online Survival Simulator (BEAMOSS for short) No. 5,313. Doesn't particularly pique my interest, even though it does not have zombies for a change.

#434934 History, Schmistory

Posted the Battle Cat on 28 June 2015 - 09:15 PM

I fought a war under the American flag.  I respect that thing because of what I and others have endured under it.  In like manner, I also have respect for the Confederate flag for all those who served under it.  They were awesome Americans and had more grit than most today.  They fought like heroes against overwhelming odds and nearly succeeded.  There is so much win in that.  I have to respect them and the flag they fought under.  

In the interests of full disclosure my family fought for the North, and a Great Great Uncle was a prisoner.  He was emaciated when he returned, a walking skeleton.  His family threw him a feast and he died after consuming it.  Too much of a good thing I suppose.  Shouldn't have eaten that one last tinsy weensy itty bitty wafer thin mint is my guess.  I'd queue up the vid of Mr. Creosote exploding but I just reviewed it and I wouldn't link that to friends.  

Anyway I don't have a problem with the flag of the Confederate army.  I have relatives on my wife's side who live in the South.  You see the flag a lot in the South as a symbol of southern pride.  It's my opinion that this flag thing is the pot calling the kettle black, or in this case the pot calling the toaster black.  It's a fabricated dust up.  I'm sick of hearing about it.  It's all manufactured and now it's getting stupid.

And may I add that Apple is so pucker butt politically correct that the doctor needs a jackhammer to give them a prostate exam.
