Inside Mac Games Reviews Mahjong Tradition
2:18 PM | Tuncer Deniz | Comment on this story

Inside Mac Games has posted a review of Mahjong Tradition from XIX Software. Here's a clip from the review:

MahJong Tradition from XIX Software throws its hat into the ring with an honest-to-goodness mah jong title. While the game captures the feel of mah jong gaming, it seems that part of the reason for the dearth of traditional mah jong titles is not because gaming developers are missing out on a ripe market, but because the experience of playing mah jong just doesn’t translate all that well to the computer.

Aspyr: Progress On Prey & Empire at War
6:31 AM | Cord Kruse | 8 comments

Aspyr Media's November newsletter focuses on the recently announced Mac version of Prey, progress on Star Wars: Empire At War, and the new gameplay video and trailer section on Aspyr's site.

More about Prey:

We're excited to be able to unveil our latest Mac game, Prey. Based on an enhanced Doom 3 engine, Prey adds portals and the ability walk on walls and flip gravity to completely change what you expect in a first person shooter. The game is up and running well on the Mac, and is in the final stages of testing. Aspyr's previous experience with the Doom 3 engine on the Mac has made the transition of Prey to OS X very smooth, and if all continues to go well it will be hitting store shelves in early 2007.
Empire at War's progress:
Work on Empire at War for Mac is moving along nicely. As December approaches we are entering full testing, and one of our main areas of focus has been to make sure the game runs well on the entire lineup of Intel Macs, including the Mac Book and Mac mini. Brad Oliver, our chief Star Wars expert and veteran of games such as Jedi Knight 2, Jedi Academy and Knights of the Old Republic, is the lead programmer on Empire at War Mac.
