Any other than Supreme Commander 2 and VP games?

No. That's an extra feature. Single player is the prime content.

I played the demo on PS3 and like it. Might be worth getting it for Mac if it's reasonably priced.

Can you play all the single player campaign in co-op with friends?

That number is probably "one". Supreme Commander 2 is (to the best of my knowledge) the only game where the Mac version is sold separately, and even that has a kind of semi-Steamplay (when you activate the Mac version on Steam, you get the Windows version in addition).

Keep in mind that the whole kerfuffle why Feral does not put their games on Steam and Aspyr only some of them is because Valve does not allow the Mac versions to be separate entities on Steam.

For those who are still wondering, The Darkness II will be a Ciderized title. I asked for confirmation when it was announced and just received a response.

Unless they have special versions of for instance Civ IV, Assassin's Creed II, Borderlands or Batman, I don't think so.

Correction: isn't anything that first appears *only* on gametreemac Cider? All the other names mentioned were released elsewhere, then added to that store. As far as I know anyway :P I knew Darkness 2 was Cider because of that. A native port seemed unlikely given how it first appeared.

If I recall correctly, ACII and Splinter Cell Conviction both were first available on Gametree (at least for pre-order), despite not being ciderised titles, but in general, Gametree is Transgaming's own playground.

ACII certainly was on Gametree first and was not a cider title.

2K Games and TransGaming today officially announced their partnership to bring Darkness II to Mac users. The announcement freed up the information stream apparently, because I also received more response to my earlier questions about the game:

Quote

The Steam version of The Darkness II will be fully featured and will support SteamPlay and SteamWorks. It will also allow play between Mac and PC versions in multiplayer.

No surprise, but always nice to have confirmation.

The 5 hour SP campaign length is keeping this from being a day one purchase for me. I played the demo, and it certainly grabbed me, but man... only 5 hours?

Yeah, that is great. That stuff is always welcome, as (I don't know about everyone else but I think) there are not enough games with those features.

…No grudge to the porting teams, like Aspyr for CoH though.

The official announcement doesn't really make any sense to me. The game's been available to pre-order for a few weeks already. Its kind of obvious they are partnering on it. Guess things have to be "official" and all that. One would think they'd time the announcement with when you could pre-order, not weeks later :P

Slightly off off-topic, but I found it interesting that they stressed the expansion of their Take-Two partnership to include 2K Games. I wonder if that means Take-Two is following EA in going Cider only for future Mac ports (other than ones already in development, namely Bioshock 2)? Traditionally 2K Game's Mac titles have been done natively by Aspyr, Feral, and MacSoft.

I hope not. Borderlands 2 as Cider "port"? The horror, the horror... :bleedingeyes:

Very interesting thoughts and I had started to wonder the same thing myself. Maybe I can wrangle some news out of Feral if they know, or even Transgaming. I'm sure they'd agree to an interview, but they are always so horribly corporate in their responses. Anyway, time will tell for sure. I'd like to see native ports of Bioshock Infinite and Borderlands 2 myself.

Maybe they just mentioned them because they are a part of the equation being the publisher and all and they are just being officially ... just a thought.

As for borderlands 2 there'll probably be a wrapped port long before there's a native port either way at least unofficially. That's what happened with the first game.
