In Topic: Free Mac (and occasionally Windows) games

Several of the Half-Life and Half-Life 2 releases, including the main games, are free to play for the next 2 months. If you haven't yet, go play them. Great games!

Not 64 bit though, so not Catalina compatible.

Another great Bundle. Europa Universalis IV with loads of DLC.

Personally I really want it... But I am not going there... I don't have enough time in my life. :P

Finished up Abyss: The Wraiths of Eden - Collector's Edition. (Yeah, that's a mouth full). No idea where I picked that one up. It is one of those simple games with puzzles, find hidden items, mini games, and a small story to go. It was okay, had some pretty decent animations here and there, and some lovely backgrounds most of the time. Not too hard, not too exciting, but both my girlfriend and my daughter found the hidden items parts interesting so that was nice I guess. Story was pretty out there though, with a hidden society under water than finds a demon-thingy inside a monster statue in some caves on the sea floor. 3/5, nothing too exciting, but okay for what it was.

Then I fired up Super Meat Boy. Played two levels, and then accepted that I DEFINITELY need a controller for it, so I deleted that again for the time being. The arrow keys on my Macbook are definitely not up for that job.

Then I went for The Binding of Isaac, a rogue like with a horror theme. And.... It runs surprisingly bad on my machine? As in 3-10 FPS, until the entire room is cleared, after which it takes a few seconds and then jumps to 60+ FPS? O_o Game itself is okay I guess. Not too exciting, but I like the randomization. Will probably try and finish it at least once, even though it runs so bad. May give up though, because of it.

The updated graphics are weird.
Could you elaborate?

For FPS to interest me these days it has to be story-based...can't think of any good story-based co-operative FPS games off the top of my head.
