I bought it and to little surprise it doesn't run. The wait for a new iMac continues

Wouldn't run as in your computer can't handle it? Or wouldn't run due to bugs/crashes.

Crashes, i emailed supergiant and they fixed it... only to reveal that it doesn't run very well  :bleedingeyes: :bleedingeyes: :bleedingeyes:   Looks like they just load too much into the VRAM for it to run well

Is the machine you're running it on the one in your sig? If I recall the X1600 is a 128MB card while the game recommends a minimum of 256MB. That would be your problem right there.

Just finished the game. A 4/5 from me I think. I like the visuals and the soundtrack, and the gameplay is mostly good. Some of it is a bit too hard, where even good skills aren't sufficient, and I don't like that. Many of the weapons also felt quite strange to play with. Story was kinda weird, since you get everything from the narrator in fragmented pieces, without any real visual cues. Towards the end I just felt like finishing the game because of this.

Good little indie though. If its a couple of dollars, I'll recommend it.

And now, time for some Legend of Zelda.

This is one of the games I own both on iOS and OS X, but never got around to actually play it. OK, this is one of my New Year's Resolutions: I will finally play through Bastion. Please remind me of these words in December 2014. ;)

On the plus side, if you wait long enough most games stop running on current OS/hardware and you can cross them off your list. :-)

Not that you'd regret playing Bastion. It didn't blow my mind, but I enjoyed it and it wasn't a huge time sink to finish it. (There are features that increase replayability, if you've a mind to do that.)

Yup. Mavericks just took NWN 2 off my backlog.

From my own experience I'd say some.. not most.

I still have a Snow Leopard partition. I haven't bothered using it for anything, but I do feel better for having it. I just remember too many games that I never got to play, replay, or finish due to incompatibilities.

That would make a fun discussion thread-- games we loved and lost. Maybe I'll start that up. (Edit: http://www.insidemac...showtopic=46188)
