What do you mean by locked?

Dont let it update to a 'newer' one. Kill the notifications app that keeps popping up that notice to update to a newer os. Make sure no one in the family is stupid enough to touch it. That sort of 'locked' ;)

Thanks!

It sounds like it will be a case of finding space to keep an old Mac around for the 32-bit titles or perhaps running the PC versions (where the licence is cross platform like Steam/GOG etc.) in a Windows VM (or WINE - although I'm not sure how that handles 32-bit games on 64-bit only MacOS either).

Best bet is to keep an older mac around with an OS that is locked.

Borderlands 3 gameplay from E3 (Somehow I missed all of that)

I am seeing more Borderlands 2 with the exact same graphics, same enemies, and even worse menus (!). I don't see what they've used the last 5 years on other than a sliding mechanic from 100 other games?

They saw how BL1 and 2 still keep selling and figured "meh, lets just push out a 3 using the same popsnizzle people seem to love"... and thus... comes a sequel that is just that.

For example, thats all the Pre-Sequel was... they only added butt-slams, along with making the menus worse.

And for all intents and purposes, BL2 was just BL1 with worse menus, and added one new thing too.

So, they are on par for their course ;)
