I got that e-mail too and went ahead and picked it up yesterday. $10 is a lot nicer than $30.

And while it's still missing multiplayer, at least now there's skirmish too instead of ONLY campaign.

How do we update our $30, 2.602.1 version to 2.602.3 (this new version?)

Any ideas?

Is it not showing as having an update available in the App Store app? If not you could try trashing COH, then go to the App Store and redownload it from your purchase history.

You'd be surprised. You would think "MAC" Game Store would clue them in.

That note shouldn't show up on Steam games though.

Back when Marathon 2 came out I became trapped in the game.  I was required to jump into a cistern to retrieve a circuit chip.  I wound up drowning every time I tried it.  I worked on this all day, drowned a dozen times.  I fired off a letter to Bungie and lectured them on game flow and how not to alienate your customer base.  I ranted about suicide traps that are required and puzzles that weren't meant to be solved.  I never heard back from them.  I quit the game and played other things for a bit and during that time I acquired a joystick for a flight sim.  I thought it would be interesting to program it for Marathon and while I was doing so I discovered that there was a "swim" key.  With a sinking feeling in my stomach I went back to the cistern, jumped in, grabbed the circuit chip and swam out.  There was no swimming in the first Marathon.

Ever since then I was certain that they had my letter taped to the water cooler and they all had a good laugh at the dumb ass who kept dying in the cistern.

HAHAHAHA....awesome!  I'm sharing this with the support team.  

I admit...we keep letters like this all the time.  Half of them are actual fan letters that put a smile on our face and warm our little nerd hearts, but the other half are pure hilarity.  Mostly Sims players....those folks are.....ahem....special :rolleyes:
