Theres also a new Build a Bundle feature going on for launch week, THQ games (Most work on mac, but more choices for windows).

Mac: https://www.macgames...a-bundle/10588/

"Pick 7 or more, save 75%" - Yet there are only 6 games to pick from.... Fail! :P

I like the look!

I would give you a bean, but, limitations on how good I am allowed to be and all...

There should be some information on how often/when flash sales happen, instead of it just being empty after you select the page.

Well, if Aspyr doesn't want my money I guess I'll just play a pirated version on my Windows laptop.
You know you can buy them for Windows too, right? If anything you should be pissed at Aspyr, not the original developer who created the game. Crying "warez time!!!1!" is just plain childish.

All those before mentioned games have disappeared from the Mac App Store now.
The Pre-Sequel and BioShock Infinite getting the boot is kind of shocking, to be honest.
They are still available at MGS, and much cheaper.

I am a young and happy person, but this forum is holding me back. All you old grumpy guys need to lighten up!

Thus we need to raise the level of number of beans one can give in one day. Sorry Mr Pink, I tried! :(

I find it pretty shoddy, to just share that information in an article buried somewhere on their support web site, giving us less than 24h to get those 32-bit games.
I must agree with this. I am SO happy I just happened to look here this evening.

I think the Steam client needs to phone home from time to time.
Man, those sneaky bastards!

Aspyr announced today, they will remove the following games from sale after today 17/06/2019:
Thanks a lot for the warning! Greatly appreciate it!
  • Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel - Own it already.
  • Call of Duty - Couldn't find this one on either MGS or Mac App Store? It was on Steam, but Windows only? I think I played it back in the days though... It was a good game!
  • Call of Duty 2 - Own it already.
  • Call of Duty 4 - Own it already.
  • Call of Duty Black Ops - I think I would like it, but the trailer looked like a Michal Bay movie, and it was 20$ for such an old game, so my backlog said I should skip it. (Might regret it though)
  • Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 - Same as above. (But 10$)
  • Civilization IV - Own it already. But man, am I said I won't be able to play this forever and ever on a modern machine.. :(
  • Civilization IV: Colonization - Own it already.
  • Doom 3 - Own it already.
  • Duke Nukem Forever - Own it already.
  • Fahrenheit - No interest.
  • Homeworld Remastered Collection - Bought it! I've only played Homeworld 2, but it was amazing, so I really wanted this one! :)
  • Prey - Own it already.
  • Quake 4 - Own it already.
  • RAGE - Own it already.
  • Star Wars: Empire at War - No idea if this is good or not, so I'll skip it in the name of my backlog!
  • Star Wars: Jedi Academy - Own it already.
  • Star Wars: Jedi Outcast - Own it already.
  • Star Wars: The Force Unleashed - This looked pretty good, so I picked it up!
  • Sims 2: Life Stories - No interest.
  • Sims 2: Pet Stories - No interest.
  • Sims 2: Castaway Stories - No interest.
  • Tomb Raider 2 - I would like it, but with my backlog it would be so low in priority that we will be at 128 bit before I ever get around to play it.. :P

Thanks for noticing! They must have added that to the list a few minutes ago.
Time to buy that before it's gone.

Eeeek, yes! Bought it too!

What bugs me the most is, one day when Valve decides not to support Mojave any longer with the Steam client, all those games will be lost forever.

Can't we just play them in offline mode, as long as we download them in time? Annoying yes, but still doable since space is cheap these days, and old games don't take up too much of it.


#450805 Jeff Vogel announces new game: 'Queen's Wish: The Conqueror'

Posted Thain Esh Kelch on 13 June 2019 - 01:09 AM

I haven't actually ever played on of Jeffs games.. This is one of my most embarassing Mac gaming issues.


#450786 Pathfinder: Kingmaker. Thoughts?

Posted Thain Esh Kelch on 11 June 2019 - 05:35 AM

It is a bit strange that screenshots on MGS has 'alpha version' and 'beta version' written on them, as if it is a good thing..


#450766 Free Mac (and occasionally Windows) games

Posted Thain Esh Kelch on 10 June 2019 - 01:46 AM

Borderlands 2: Commander Lilith & the Fight for Sanctuary DLC free on Steam until July the 8th!


#450734 64-bit apocalypse

Posted Thain Esh Kelch on 07 June 2019 - 03:39 AM

Since new DLC seems to be comming for BL2 to set up the game for BL3, I'd assume Aspyr would make it 64bit (Again assuming they plan to port BL3 to Mac). I'd also be quite sad if they didn't.. That game is such a marvel.

World of Goo free on Epic Game Store. A puzzle classic everyone should play!

Gone Home free on Humble Bundle the next week (Scroll down). Note, you have to download the binary and backup it yourself - it is not part off your "bought" software at Humble.


#450550 "Apple Arcade"

Posted Thain Esh Kelch on 21 April 2019 - 02:37 PM

It is my plan to not buy any games in 2019, no matter how good a deal it is. The games will always become as cheap or cheaper again, and, well, backlog enough through 2023.

And I want a Nintendo Switch, and about 30 games for it. But that will likely wait until the Switch 2 arrives.
