Starcraft will probably always be one of the my favourites. Starcraft 2 and its 2 expansions were some of my top played Mac games

Greetings speedcat. Let me put you to work right away:

Can you tell the powers that be to port Age of Empires II HD Edition to Mac? The Mac version of Age of Empires 2 stopped working years ago (was originally developed for PPC) :(

The HD remake of the game on windows has a pretty healthy player base and since the game is quite old it would actually run well on pretty much every Mac.

If you are planning on going with RX 580 / 1060 or below then you don't really lose anything by being stuck on AMD. The 580 and 1060 are pretty much identical. Going much higher then that probably isn't very worth it on an eGPU due to the limited bandwidth, but I'm just speculating.

I wonder when Nvidia is going to come out of the closet with some proper macOS support again.

in the eGPU.io review they mention a script that they run in order to use Nvidia GPUs. They tested with a 1070 and it gave good performance.

In Topic: John Carmack on Steve Jobs

The point about Steve not really caring for games and wishing they had less importance was interesting. Definitely makes sense when you consider how little Apple has cared about gaming for the past decades.

In hindsight, it seems like Apple really missed the boat on that. Apple was very focused on marketing towards creative professionals and 'non-business' types (The old "I'm a Mac and I'm a PC" ads always hinted that 'boring' PC's were really only good for spreadsheets and tax calculations). It seems like gaming would have also been a perfect fit to go right a long with that "Mac = creativitiy and fun" message. Look at the cult following that something like the PC Master Race has. Definitely similar in feel to the cult following that Apple has had for decades.

Gaming is something that makes you love your device, but also want to upgrade it to the newest device for the best graphics. Best of both worlds for Apple. Real shame that they decided they weren't interested in the slightest in that market.
