Feral Interactive has been hard at work converting their games to a digital download friendly format and Macgamestore has several of the first conversions available now for eager gaming fans. Borderlands: Game of the Year Edition, Rome: Total War Gold Edition, and separate versions of Borderlands and its four add-on packs are now available for download and purchase. More digital Feral titles, including Bioshock, will be available in the coming weeks.

Borderlands Game of the Year Edition:
Bloodthirsty bandits. Vicious monsters. Tons of loot. Lock, Load and face the madness. Gearbox Software's acclaimed sci-fi hit comes to the Mac complete with all four add-on packs. Borderlands is a unique hybrid of first person shooter and role-playing game with a super sharp visual style and a compelling 4 player co-op mode.

Planet Pandora is a sparsely populated wasteland where the rule of law gets rewritten daily in the smoke of the last gun battle. Civilization consists of small outposts on the fringe of human influence, in an area called the Borderlands. Pandora's one tourist attraction is a mythical Vault supposedly packed with fantastic riches.

Fortune hunters, corrupt corporate mercenaries and lowlife hoodlums roam the landscape, searching under every grain of sand for the treasure. Since most intelligent life on Pandora has the occupation of Vault Hunter, society has gone to hell - making the outposts and outback areas more than just a little dangerous.

Rome Total War Gold Edition:
Two world dominating games in one! Uniting multi-award winning Rome: Total War and its official expansion pack, Barbarian invasion, you must guide history’s greatest armies to their victories in a game of epic real-time warfare, empire building, politics and treachery.

Play as one of three great Roman families, whose thirst for power will stop at nothing. This the world of Hannibal, Julius Caesar, Cleopatra and a thousand others. This is a world of soldiers, gladiators, tyrants, monsters and fools. It’s a rich, exciting world, awaiting a conqueror – you! You must use military genius to build an empire that stretches across Europe and Africa. Finally march on Rome to seize control of the greatest empire in the world. Then in Barbarian invasion either defend it or lead a Barbarian horde and bring the once mighty empire to its knees.
The Borderlands: Game of the Year Edition costs $49.95, while the standard edition costs $39.95. An add-on pack for the standard edition, featuring four add-on packs, costs $24.95. Rome: Total War Gold Edition is available for $29.95.

I guess MGS is really shaping up to be the Steam alternative for online distribution without the revenue concerns of Steamplay. That definitely allows a broader list of Mac titles for a one stop shop than Steam. Hopefully MGS can continue to distinguish itself once the Mac App Store comes online in January.

Borderlands is a MUST BUY. Completely awesome game. I would have had the review out by now if I wasn't stupidly busy with work and other IMG content. Well actually its done for the main game, I still have to do the DLC since its GOTY edition.

You won't be seeing Feral's titles on Steam..so don't get your hopes up. But do yourself a fun favor and pick the game up..its available from a number of places, but buying from MGS supports IMG so there you go.

Borderlands is amazing and I own it twice over with all the DLC on Xbox and Steam but I just can't justify paying for it a third time. Steamplay is a driving force in changing user mindsets in how cross platform software is distributed. I understand the logistics and reasoning behind Mac Porting houses not placing their titles on Steam with Steamplay, but Valve, developers, publishers, and porting houses need to square away some sort of new method of revenue distribution.

If I see a sale on Borderlands GOTY Mac for half off or something I might consider dropping on it a 3rd time but it's iffy. I don't know the solution to the Steamplay revenue issue, but I can guarantee I'm more inclined to buy a title if it's available as a SteamPlay title. Certainly in the case of games like Borderlands whence nobody ever expected to see a Mac Port.

Is Borderlands co-op only?  Isn't there a single player mode?

There is single-player. It's done Diablo-style where the enemy difficulty scales according to how many people are in a game.

Awesome!  This is my kind of game, combining my two favorite game types:  FPS and RPG.  It's why I played Deus Ex into the ground.

The fun increases exponentially when you play with a good batch of mates. It's a decent game solo, it's downright fantastic with a group. Better loot, harder enemies, beers.

Beers ??! Is that one of the GOTY Edition's features ? ;)

Yes, it comes with a nice case of your favorite beer which you can select at checkout.

(I don't know if beer is what he meant to say, or a typo. If the latter I can't guess at what he was trying to say either.)

My experience is you're more likely to have a tasty adult beverage with a group of friends as well, which also can "enhance" the enjoyment of this particular game.

Hmm, I like that idea. Alchohol makes everything better, except when it does not. ;)
