Man, that is a hard one since I wasn't very old (I was born in November 1982), but it was on a Mac SE, that I know. I *think* it was the 1987 game StuntCopter by HomeTown Software, but it might also have been the 1990 game ParArena by Casady & Greene. Or the 1988 game Shufflepuck Cafe by Broderbund.

What I remember about them was all the quick action and much better graphics, which was completely different from playing on my Magnavox Odyssey 2 (At least I think that was what it was).

Erh, that is from a MacGameStore giveaway on Facebook, not Aspyr, that I got the game. :)

12" Macbook discontinued (too close to the MBA I guess)
That's likely. Sad though, because it was really nice with a fan-less laptop! I really like mine (Except for the keyboard, picking it up after its 3. repair tomorrow). Only but is that I would have liked a slightly faster CPU.


Keyboards on new 13" MBP and MBA upgraded to the gen3 butterfly switches, which means more durability hopefully
Generation 3.5. It has the new material underneath the keys, which the 2018 MBA didn't have. :)


1TB, 2TB, and 4TB SSD upgrades are less expensive now on pretty much all Mac desktops (Mac Mini, iMac, iMac Pro, Mac Pro)
Yay!! :D

Seems like they dropped most of their games from 2013 and before.
But why cut Homeworld Remastered ('15), BioShock Infinite ('13) and The Pre-Sequel ('14), but then keep Borderlands 2 ('12) and Civilization V ('10)?
