Hello guys,

I'm somehow new to the mac scene (used to play solely on console) and now I only play on my Mac. I hate to have to reboot using windows to game, so I was looking for good sites / blogs to check new games and future releases...

Any suggestions?

Thanks!

Well our website / twitter / Facebook might be an idea, seems that we do nothing but port AAA Mac games ;)

You can also go to www.gameagent.com :)  Our blog and games list are informative and pretty extensive and the new site design is community focused.

Feral's sites are great and we are huge fans.

MacGameStore and these forums are great too.

I also like http://www.cultofmac.com/ and http://www.macrumors.com/ too.

I've been told that one can read uncannily accurate predictions of upcoming releases in Brail using the pimples on my butt.  That would cost you 5 bucks a feel though.  Cash or space credits only.

Like this? That page could be a bit better maintained, though.

Aside from Inside Mac Games, and these forums - REALLY!! I've been coming here for a decade now for the infos -

check www.appshopper.com
If something new is coming to the Mac AppStore you will see it in the Mac /New section. The custom RSS feed is esp. helpful.
And  maybe check the Mac games section of the sister site www.Toucharcade.com
hey, don´t worry - it´s only red pixels on your hands...

I'm surprised to see this many answers (didn't get many replies at first)!
Thanks for the suggestions, indeed I am trying to keep an eye on the 2 main mac porting companies (kudos Aspyr and Feral! Where is Batman BTW? ;)
I will also check the page at IMG and appshopper! Thanks!

This whole thing makes me thing that it couldn't hurt to start a page a "try" to keep it updated!

Cheers!
