None of those for me thanks, the only games currently on my wish list are StarCraft II, Enemy Territory: Quake Wars, and Spore.

The last game of interest to me on Windows was Obscure.

Upcoming PC games of interest: "Empire: Total War" anyone?  Going by the screenshots, looks to be shaping up into another impressive addition to the series.

Absolutely! Total War series have been my main gaming interest
(alongside Neverwinter) for a while now.


Mass Effect is the next big thing in my views,
doubtful it'll come to mac given how Jade Empire didn't come either.

There is some hope of Combat Mission series coming to mac sometime later on.

I used to play them a whole lot, but the mac versions didn't make the OSX transition.
(Or rather, they didn't survive OSX:s abandonement of quickdraw3D).

uh... Stalker, Orange Box, Supreme Commander, World in Conflict, Bioshock, CMR DiRT...

need I continue?
or, in fact, please define what kind of games you take interest in..

as for recent releases. Things tend to slow down very quickly from Feb-July.

Bioshock was good, but it was also from quite a while ago.

Supreme Commander was overhyped, and ended up not being that great. I don't understand what the fixation is with Half Life 2, and Team Fortress 2 sucked. World in Conflict doesn't interest me, and CMR DiRT is a racing game.

Hopefully, Mass Effect isn't a disappointment. Is it at least as good as Knights of the Old Republic?

Spore should be excellent, and I hope Blizzard learned what they did wrong with Warcraft 3 and what they did right with Starcraft so Starcraft 2 can live up to the hype.

I'll put it this way: If you're disappointed in Mass Effect, I'm disappointed in you.
Kestrel (Falcon NW Tiki) – 4.0 GHz i7 4790K / 16GB RAM / 512GB Samsung 950 Pro M.2, 2x480GB Intel 730 (RAID0), 10TB STX BarraCuda Pro / GeForce GTX TITAN X 12GB

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.

for the record, i enjoyed all those games, despite their flaws. They all had their various merits, and whilst not perfect, I thought theyre all pretty good.
what was the last game you enjoyed?
Polytetrafluoroethylene to my friends.

I actually really like WarCraft III, but with that being said they better keep StarCraft II true to it's current style and not implement heroes, power-ups, etc.

Based on the large pile of DVD cases of games I've yet to finish I probably buy far too many Mac games!  :)


I've really cut down recently however as I'm still on PowerPC and most of the games that I would have bought are Intel only already. Having said that Tomb Raider Anniversary I bought it already as it is a must have for me. I can remember a time a few years back where it seemed I had bought everything companies like Aspyr put out (except the Sims series) and realised the limited selection in the Mac market was a good thing for my bank balance!

I hope when I move to an Intel Mac there remains a regular selection of games so I don't have to look at running Boot camp or buying a console.

It was so long ago, I don't even remember what year it was that I purchased them...
