#449356 Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance released for Mac

Posted UmarOMC1 on 27 June 2018 - 03:16 AM

TransGaming's idiocy with their 'port' of MGR:R has made its rounds in the news over the past couple of days due to a reddit post (although I noted it here last March, but reddit's the 'Front Page…');

DRM restrictions slice Metal Gear Rising down on Mac

‘Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance’ Unplayable on Mac Due to DRM Limits

Bought Metal Gear Rising on Mac? You can’t play it anymore because of dead DRM

Metal Gear Rising on Mac Is Now Unplayable Because of DRM

Metal Gear Rising DRM disables the game’s Mac edition

…you get the point (there's more).

Now, having legally purchased the game, my only options to play this game again; purchase for PS3 (and use that slow thing), install via BootCamp, install Steam & game via WINE (and hope the graphics aren't screwed up) or download a pirated copy of a game I paid for. :glare:  This is a really good game but I'm only seriously considering the last two options. I can still install the macOS version via Steam but, of course, it won't run.

I'm sure they were looking for any reason to stop supporting macOS without wanting to word it as incompetence. I know it'd be a golden day if developers could build a polished macOS title simply by clicking a radio button adjacent to the word 'macOS' and clicking 'build,' but the lack of wanting to invest in macOS to build polished apps later, IMO, is driving this as opposed to Blizzard deciding to not publish Overwatch for macOS because, yes, nearly no hardware shipping from Apple (especially at publication time) could run it smoothly without resorting to Bootcamp and most people aren't going to buy one for gaming. I can't blame them when I feel Apple hasn't and doesn't care enough about macOS either.

#448734 Rise of The Tomb Raider™ announced for macOS, Linux!

WOWEEWOW! This game runs superbly on my setup. I selected the Very High preset, disabled Motion Blur (because I don't like the effect in any game) and am running 1920x1080. Super fluid!! What a gorgeous game but I need sleep!

We'll see what our favorite devs do with it.

Why the hell, after all these years, can't they just make a simple port of the toolset to Mac?  It would probably take someone half an hour.  If the game runs, the toolset will.  This is just silly.  Just hit the Mac switch in the compiler and do it.
Worked for me when compiling Half Life 3 from Source code. Pffft!

No, it isn't. They never are.

#447251 Disgaea 2 PC / 魔界戦記ディス...

Posted UmarOMC1 on 17 November 2017 - 01:41 AM

So I just happened upon this game and am surprised about it's availability for macOS. Disgaea 2 PC, a Final Fantasy Tactics-style game, is available at 40% off on Steam as of this writing.

Da Trailer:


#447197 The Signal From Tölva

Posted UmarOMC1 on 12 November 2017 - 04:21 PM

The Signal From Tölva has apparently popped up for macOS back on October 18th. Based on the videos and feedback I plan to try this out, unfortunately I missed a 50% off sale they ran to promote the macOS version.

One review;

If this has been posted about before, I apologize. I hit my patience limit with the search flood control after one search.

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?

Posted UmarOMC1 on 02 October 2017 - 05:46 PM

: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!
