Just wanted to give a shout out to my new youtube series about weekly Mac gaming news. I aim to release this every Friday evening, though it may bleed over into Saturday morning sometimes. Lots of fun news and nuggest of info around for Mac gamers these days, so wanted to compile them in an easily digestible format.

I plan to add some more sections, such as rumors (Steam DB stuff, etc) and perhaps shoutouts to notable Kickstarter projects or similar things like the Secret History of Mac gaming project. (Which the thread here inspired me to pledge.) Lastly, I'm keeping an eye on neat threads around IMG, Macrumors  and Reddit that may be of interest to highlight. (None make it into this video at the moment.)

Any feedback is welcome! Offhand I know some of the audio could be tuned up, and I will look to do this in future releases.

I found this very informative. It seems like the ideal kind of thing to find out about games that I might have missed. There were a couple that I hadn't heard of so that was great. Perhaps you could also mentioned the Unbound campaign for the book "The Secret History of Mac Gaming". Seems like it could use all the publicity it can get.

Yes, I realized a bit too late that I left out the book campaign. It will be featured in next weeks video. Glad you found it informative, that's what I was aiming for :)
