Cogs appears to be heavily influenced by steampunk, so if you are into steampunk and puzzles you'll probably want to get this game.

Had to grab Civ 5 for 17 bucks. This franchise hasn't let me down yet.

9400M is soo 2010!  :shifty:

I think I'll wait until duke hits 5$ on sale. Given the 'rage' reviews it has received, I assume it won't take that long. Also, I'm currently going through Half-Life 1 for the first time, and I don't think I've gone through more than 15-20% until now.

Cities in Motion is currently at $9.95 here at the MacGameStore.

Just saying. You guys really need to watch MGS as well for deals.

And Duke Nukem Forever needs to be 'free with some other game purchase' before I bother getting it ;)

Decent price for the Duke - duly purchased after rectifying my mistake is telling steam I was born yesterday when navigating to the DNF page :D

And good point fridigman .. MGS does have good deals too and would be good to help support our favourite Mac Gaming site. Is there a page for specials on the MGS ? Couldn't easily find one when having a look now.

I'm a little ways into Duke Nukem Forever and I'm having a lot of fun.  The mouse could be more responsive, but I'm messing around with it and we'll see.  So far, I don't see what the problem is.  It's made me LOL a number of times and like I said, I'm having fun.  Well worth the 20 bucks.

DNF might be one of those games that automatically has the "mouse smoothing" option on.  If so, maybe you can turn that off in an .ini file or something?

Speaking of MGS, what's the typical DRM like there? The only digital stuff I've bought from MGS were a few Virtual Programming games which came with their own DRM (pretty popsnizzlety at that, too) so I'm not sure about the other things sold there.

According to one review on MGS, it may not be supported but supposedly still runs well.

Yes, I turned that completely off in the DNF options menu.  Had mouse sensitivity all the way up too and the combination helped a lot, but it is still too slow.  I can adjust the mouse resolution too with a button on the mouse, but it makes it way too fast, so now I'm experimenting with high mouse res, lower game software sensitivity.  I should find the golden spot soon.

Portal is FREE until Sept 20.  :w00t:
Valve is presenting Portal as a way for kids to learn about physics and to get into game programming.

Download it before next Tuesday, and it's your's to keep.

Ironic given that portals violate one of the fundamental principles of physics, conservation of momentum. :)

Linear or angular?

And actually, no, they don't. "Speedy thing goes in, speedy thing goes out." Forgot? And if you are referring to the fact that objects falling into a portal instantly appear to change their direction of movement: that part of the conservation of linear momentum is only true when the space is homogenic - which it isn't due to the portals.

If you mean the conservation of energy on the other hand - well, that is a completely different story. :P

At one point GlaDOS says "Spectacular. You appear to understand how a portal affects forward momentum, or to be more precise, how it does not."  :lol:
