Since IMG no longer posts news and reviews, where do you go to find Mac game news and reviews?

I know about Mac Gamer HQ. Are there any others?

cheers!

No place really. I really don't like Mac Gamer HQ, so I just tend to follow the publishers directly on Facebook.

I look at what's being deposited in the usual online repositories (Steam and GoG for the most part, but MGS and the Mac App store too). If something catches my eye I'll investigate further. This is mostly indy stuff, of variable quality.

Recent AAA releases are pretty moribund for the obvious reasons, but it's pretty easy to keep up to date with what Blizzard, Feral and (to a lesser extent) Aspyr are up to.
You must gather your party before venturing forth.

I usually read articles at mmorpg.com and massivelyop.com.

mmorpg.com does have a list of PC games and you can click to only show Mac games… and then I weep.

I go to find my Mac game news from Johnny the shoeshine guy.  Costs me 20 bucks but it's pretty comprehensive, and he keeps his mouth shut.

:ph34r: - Where would we be without Johnny!

OT: mostly GOG and Steam News on new Games and my Steam Library View, if a game gets a post-release Mac version.

When there's a multiplayer version, I'm going to be on Frost's team. Well, except he doesn't seem to actually need a team...I mean, what's the point? "Hey look, it's Frost and His Merry Gang of Useless Hangers-On!" Or something.

Marineness 50% confirmed. Now I just need verification that you've drawn a dick on something in the past week.
