So I just ran into Heliborne whilst perusing new macOS games on Steam…

And the first video that popped up in a search for reviews on YT…

#446737 Best Mac Computers for Gaming 2015

Posted UmarOMC1 on 05 October 2017 - 08:17 PM

In these trying times, as a Mac gamer of the 90s... wait, it's still the 90s, right?

—a Hackintosh is the only reasonable gaming machine, as I was saying.

#446685 Feral's upcoming project?

:w00t:  SHADDAP! I'd buy all three! Tomb Raider was really damn good in the action, graphics and control, I love CodeMasters' works, have never played Bioshock 2 and damn do Feral make good ports!

I'm finally enjoying this game. 1. I knew I was going to have to use a controller for all the controls but 2. this game was even taxing the GTX970 I had (or was the GTX680 the last time I tried this game?). Now, with the 1070, it (and most games, IMO) probably plays maybe as well as it would in Windows with a GTX680, which is pretty darned smooth. Yes, I see the few graphical glitches—the bees look like cheap origami, but I'm finding it more than bearable too.
Updated to macOS 10.13, NVIDIA released their updated Web Drivers, graphical glitches, gone! :w00t:

Caught ARMA3 on sale, $20. Just getting a black screen with white pointer on my setup. Virtual Programming have done their signature work again. Can't find a way around it.
After 10.13 upgrade I tried installing Dying Light and ArmA III again... I could see the background 3D graphics in DL's menus now, actual game won't load though. ArmA III? It works! :w00t:

#446389 Feral's upcoming project?

Well, as I've about as much chance with this as with the PowerBall; take license of Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance so it'll f@#$ing work again, and, for that matter, help out with Dying Light (so it'll work with NVIDIA cards) and take on ARMA 3 so I could hold my breath for some competent builds (you can probably guess who've been working on this one).

Later games? How about; Vanquish, Little Nightmares, Bayonetta, NieR:Automata, Sniper Elite 4, Titanfall 2, and damn would I love a port of Fallout 4! Anyway, tell the police I started holding my breath shortly after posting this, and that's why I've died. :sabber: lol

#446322 "Say 'Hello!' to 'Ryzentosh!'"

Posted UmarOMC1 on 19 August 2017 - 07:07 PM

If I NEEDED a new computer right now I'd absolutely go with a Hackintosh for the bang for the buck. I'll wait for what Apple's MacPro offering will be otherwise (then a Hackintosh might be my only option depending on specs/price). A new computer will require, if I decide to BootCamp, the steal-all-your-data-with-every-update [without Registry editing magic] Windows10 as Microsoft dropped support for Win7 on newer processors.

I saw it available for purchase on my Wish List, then only saw a Windows logo (tl;dr—it's coming…).

Boiling Steam think it's Dirt 4 because the West Norwood line is somehow connected with a community "Project Dirt". I still hope it'll be Rise of the Tomb Raider or Nier: Automata...
I'd love any of those games to be announced ASAP, especially with the Summer Sale's end approaching!

However I strongly doubt it as long as they haven't managed to adapt the Steam client's close/minimize/fullscreen buttons to the new flat UI design that's been around since Yosemite... It's been three years now.
Pressing Esc to get out of full screen videos rather than navigating with increased precision for a tiny, ghost chiclet in the bottom, right corner would be highly appreciated!

#445760 iMac Pro with up to 18core Xeon and Vega graphics coming in December

Tech trap, I'll wait for the MacPro and hopefully keep that running for up to ten years, too.

Thanks for checking. :) It depends who the third party is! We very much appreciate it when people buy, install and play the game on Mac once it's released, ideally from the Feral Store, Steam or the Mac App Store, but entirely your call.
Green Man Gaming, redeem via Steam. I'm hoping it's a yes. Thank you.

Was the mystery solved yesterday? Metal 2, meaning they'll come in the fall, 10.13 only?
I'm hoping Apple takes Metal the Direct X/3D route and each iteration gets better, although I wish the present iteration played nicer with Nvidia hardware.
