That's not so much a question of "if", but rather of "when".

Even if Apple has a magic Intel emulator for ARM, and even if this emulator is performant enough for games, sooner or later it will be removed, like every compatibility layer Apple had before.
They won't remove it as long as Apple doesn't have a high-end Intel processor replacement, and I'll eat the source code for Logic Pro if it turns out they have that.

or if they're busy porting older games to 64 bit Metal. It could be both. :unsure:
I hope for either. Feral makes excellent ports, but there are soo many games we are loosing to the 64 bit apocalypse...

In Topic: What games are people playing these days!?

I had a hunch that I would like Into the Breach, even though it didn't look to interesting, but thanks to Epic which gave it to me for free a few weeks ago, I gave it a shot.

24 hours later playing it non-stop, and it turns out I was right! It is like an advanced rogue-like chess with loot, and I happen to like both chess and the other two things! You are time traveling warriors, that are fighting an alien invasion. Battles are fought on randomly generated 8x8 grids, with you commanding three mechs with different fighting abilities. Killing aliens give you mech pilots experience points, and you slowly gather small reactor upgrades to upgrade your mechs, and pick up special abilities and other weapons. If you loose, you can select one pilot to go back in time, and start over the game, keeping only his experience. This gives you juuuust enough of an argument to start yet another game when you loose, because this time you are just a tiny bit stronger stronger and this time it will definitely just go a little bit better!

Highly recommended if you like strategy games and rogue-likes. 5/5

Here is the rumour but those games don't even exist on Epic store right now?
Several of the previous games that has been given away for free wasn't available on the store prior, so that is not unheard of.

In Topic: GOG Galaxy 2.0 Beta for Mac available

15 May 2020 - 08:24 AM

Finally got around to upgrading to Galaxy 2.

I love being able to see all my games, and being able to sort for genre, to see what I have laying around that I would like to play across all platforms! I can't see my friends lists at all, because the minimum supported window size is 1500 pixels, and well I am short of that on my 12" Macbook.. :P

I am only missing one site, to have all my games in one place.. And that is, funny enough, Macgamestore... :P I did request it though, on their support site, but I guess it will take years before that happen, if ever.

Also, either I have more games than I knew, or games count twice if I have them on more than one site.
