2033 was harder than Last Light. Suck it up, bro!

You bet I do. I have a great book on vidja game cheats.

After a shameful performance playing Pacman today on my PS4, I probably would benefit from that classic tome. I hope it was because I haven't played it for many years but I am fearful it is because I simply suck at it. Oh, well. I still had fun and that is what counts. Still, it is yet another time I can only hope nobody ever sees my abysmal stats which I am giving away now but only for this one game. There are many more.

Suddenly I thought of Tom Petty and the Heart Breakers singing, "Even the losers, have fun sometimes"

If I recall correctly, the Redux version of 2033 toned that difficulty down didn't it?

My brother gave me 2033-2035 on book form for christmas. Has anyone read them? Should I read them before or after playing the games?

So... a few years and macOS versions later, how do the two Metro games run nowadays on a Mac?

My thoughts exactly...
I did read about some problems with nVidia cards on Yosemite, I'm just wondering if anything changed...

Those issues were solved back in the days with a new NVIDIA driver, now my 780m works jus fine on high sierra 10.13.4.
Hope it helps

Tried redux version of the first game not too long ago - having played and finished the sequel a few years back before the redux.

No real issues except loading screens which keep pausing the audio as data is reading from disk. I found the ammo conservation made it a difficult game for me.
