In Topic: Mac App Store Vs. Steam?

07 November 2017 - 10:07 AM

1. GOG

Ethics, customer support, DRM-freedom, multi-platform releases. GOG Galaxy on Mac ist snappy and works well within the OS design guidelines. The classic .sh scripts under Linux (Mojo-Installers) by Ryan Gordon are a dream for old-school purists.

If you use the classic installers, there‘s no online dependancy at all and you can move the game to wherever you like: internal, external drives, USB sticks, etc. It‘s super easy to share a game with your family members, which don‘t have any game accounts or are too young. Much better than Steam Family Sharing. Lots of sales, too and GOG‘s curation is MUCH better and more refined than Steam‘s garbage collection as of late (there‘s so much bullpopsnizzle and fake games on the platform it‘s getting ridiculous!).

2. Feral games

Bought directly off of their store to support their Linux/Mac porting efforts.

Feral's Mad Max (great port) and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe on Nintendo Switch (150cc currently). I should get back into Zelda, if you compare the relatively generic open-world of the wasteland with the unpredictable Hyrule in Breath of the Wild -- it's such a huge difference. Mad Max is fun, though. Like the driving and some of the characters. But the Ubi formula is slowly wearing me out.

In Topic: Feral's upcoming project?

Feral teases "West Norwood" on a London bus as its upcoming game. 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, but it's gonna be Total War: Warhammergeddon Triple XXX Valhalla Edition anyway, ... or a racing game. :P

In Topic: WWDC 2k17

Best WWDC in an eternity: New file system (finally!), Metal 2, VR, external GPUs (woohoo!), kick-ass iMac, new Mac Pro on the horizon. 599 $ for the Sonnet enclosure + RX 580 is reasonable, too. I'll order one of these. Nice one. :groupwave:

In Topic: Fallout 3, Fallout New Vegas and Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion now DRM free on G...

Fallout New Vegas GOG is running flawlessly for me in CrossOver Linux using the cross-tie of the Steam version. Should be the same in macOS.
