#449317 Feral's upcoming project?

Posted Thain Esh Kelch on 14 June 2018 - 01:10 PM

So, how far is Feral with the Witcher 3 port? 2018 or 2019 release?


#449169 What games are people playing these days!?

Civ4:BTS, again.

Had this start in a game. Never seen that before. At least it turned out that they were indeed on the same continent!

#449144 Razer releases entry-level eGPU $299 eGPU enclosure with macOS support

Wasn't this thread about an eGPU enclosure?
The mere presence of tBC as an admin on these boards, causes automatic derailment. It just goes slower when he isn't posting in the thread.

Anyway, I don't get the appeal of these for gaming on a Mac. For all the expense, you cannot even achieve maximal performance.

Why not spend the money on either a gaming laptop or desktop just for PC gaming instead? You get your Windows install included, whatever GPU you want and it really isn't that much more money is it?
But if money isn't an issue, but Windows is, what then? In many cases performance will be adequate on a Mac, and we don't have time to play all the AAAs anyway, so the Mac selection is likely fine.

New question!

What's your favourite series/franchise of games, and why?
Legend of Zelda I have to say. I have had waaaay to many wonderful gaming experiences in that series. Ocarina of Time is still my number one all time game (Followed by Baldurs Gate 1, Civilization 4: BTS, Borderlands 2 in that order). The music, the setting, the characters, the gameplay, the story, the AAA feel - Everything top notch. Specifically for OoT, it has to be the music and story though.

Really looking forward to getting a Nintendo Switch and dive into Breath of the Wild.


#449123 Introducing Speedcat (New Feral rep)

Posted Thain Esh Kelch on 24 May 2018 - 01:15 AM

Speedcat: The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, The Witcher 3, Mass Effect 1-3, Assasins Creed 3+, Far Cry 1+, for Mac. You may reply to this thread when you've convinced your superiors to start porting them. Thank you very much! :pinkpony:

Oh, and Half-Life 3 now we are at it, please. But I will allow you to reply to the thread before this is confirmed in the making. I am that kind.


#449097 Razer releases entry-level eGPU $299 eGPU enclosure with macOS support

I wonder when Nvidia is going to come out of the closet with some proper macOS support again.


#449012 I apologize for derailing threads.

I haven't ever taken it personally either, no worries Kitty, though I do appreciate you saying this.

The continuing derailing of threads is kind of the charm of the community, because we all do it, and we all keep them going, and fill them with funny nonsense, which we all love.

I think our community is pretty cool and I can't recall ever being frustrated or annoyed (I won't lie Ballmer is pushing it though), so no sweat. Y'all are cool!
And this. I consider Ballmer a first rate troll, with his endless spamming of completely pointless and lousy humored threads that just fill up the forum for no reason what so ever than to satisfy his apparently very empty life.

I still have to finish the first one. Some time when I have plenty of time, I'll restart it. I have no idea what the story is about now.


#448721 Apple CPUs to Replace Intel in Macs?

I don't think Steam figures into a future where the consumer ecosystem does not include hardware capable of running desktop games. The vast majority of Apple customers are not using desktop computers now as it is. When it comes to games, mobile games are where the money is at for Apple.

Which is a bit crazy, considering GTAV just hit a staggering 6 billion dollars of revenue... It is the largest entertainment franchise ever!
Apple is really missing out on something, not having proper gaming Macs.


#448702 Apple CPUs to Replace Intel in Macs?

Posted Thain Esh Kelch on 05 April 2018 - 12:48 AM

If you add the stuff about ARM Macs, together with the new Universal Binary rumors, and Timothy's love for the iPad, and shake it a little bit, you do end up with a scary FrankenPadBook rumor like that. ^

I am actually surprised at how stupidly complex they made the difficulty levels.

I play the game fairly infrequently, but when I do I'll have a blast for a weekend, and then set it aside for a period of time, usually a few months. I usually run around in adventure mode; there's a couple of zones that remind me of my childhood home (no, really), although perhaps with slightly fewer horrific face-munching monstrosities than I remember. DIII as nostalgia.
...there are trailer parks in D3 now? O_o
