OK, here we go kids! These have all been saved out at 800 pixels wide for sake of downloading.

Half Life 2

Battlefield 2 #1

Battlefield 2 #2

IL2 Sturmovik #1

IL2 Sturmovik #2

Oasis (award winning shareware)

Onimusha #1 for Ichigo27

Onimusha #2 for Ichigo27

Onimusha #3 for Ichigo27

Onimusha #4 for Ichigo27

Silent Hunter III #1

Silent Hunter III #2

Silent Hunter III #3

Winning Eleven 7

Toga picture to follow. Odd issue with IL2 flight sim ... when you try to set it to full screen modce the whole things flips upside down under OpenGL and DirectX. Weird. Plays fine in windowed mode though.

Note that in some cases I may not have modified the screen rez etc off of default so there are some jaggies esp Battlefield2.

Actually it's pronounced Onimusha 3.

Very cool Overall. Let me know if you get the full retail version of it. The Ubi Soft version has full english text BTW.

I really do hope you get to test Devil May Cry 3 when it comes out soon.

im not pirating it thats what you think. when i said downloading i ment the demos.

BTW: yes at max settings Half life 2 runs SUPURB. and looks amazing too. looks like you dont need a $600 graphics card to run half life 2 well.

That's my goal at work these days  :D

Today I'll be installing my legal copy of Trainz Ultimate (yes, I am very aware that Trainz is coming to mac but since I own the PC disks), Vampires: Bloodlines, the demo of Oblivion (but I hear it runs superb), and a handful of other interesting ones. I take requests too.  :)

Don't forget the new Sonalysts game Dangerous Waters when you're done (in a year or so :) ). Looks really nice, great reviews.

A whole new world has opened up to Mac gamers.

The PC Halo demo? It has somewhat heavier-duty, PS2.0 shaders than the Mac port. 'The Silent Cartographer' isn't the most demanding or graphically intense part of the game- rather the reverse- but at the end, there's a rather demanding light bloom, and of course it is t3h pretty. You might even compare demos, look for subtle differences.

Here's a report from my co-worker ...

I tried WoW on windows last night ... I now have absolutely everything max'd and get an average of 28-32fps :), up from about 18-22fps with everything not quite maxed. A very enjoyable experience! I saw peaks as high as about 41fps.

I also tried (HL2) Lost Coast with HDR turned on ... same settings as Half Life 2, but including HDR. Absolutely stunning! I'll have to demonstrate some time because you really need to see it in all its glory - low res video [that he shot] does not do it justice.

I am loading Galatic Civ II Dread Lords demo and, yes, The Movies (PC) demo and a few others including Halo Combat Evolved right now. Will report later.

PS> Does anyone know of a demo for Oblivion?

The screens you post don't look as good as the 360 demo. The windows demo has bump map& normal map settings right?
