IMG Reviews Deus Ex Human Revolution - Ultimate Edition
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 30 comments

Inside Mac Games has posted a new review of Deus Ex Human Revolution - Ultimate Edition, brought to Mac by Feral Interactive. Developed by Eidos Montreal and published by Square Enix for games consoles and Windows PC, Deus Ex: Human Revolution is a prequel to the classic Deus Ex.

Here's an excerpt:

The game has moments of brilliance when you figure out how to combine augmentations in useful ways. For example, if you have turret hacking and the strength upgrade, you can flip the switch on a turret, then pick it up and walk around with your own personal heavy duty machine gun. Have an SMG or assault rifle with the curving bullets upgrade? Turn on your x-ray vision to automatically target foes behind walls or cover without waiting for them to appear. Have the upgrades to breathe in gas or laugh at EMPs? Toss gas and EMP grenades with reckless abandon as you shrug it off harmlessly. Have the high jump, silent falling and cloak? Leap up to a high place, sneak into a window and knock out two guards just behind it.
Check out the full review at the link below.

6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 2 comments

In honor of Aspyr Media's digital download release of Quake 4, the Game Agent Blog recently posted a new list of tips and tricks for success in the multiplayer arenas of the sci-fi first person shooter. The guide includes a variety of tips about general strategy as well as specific skills to cultivate like strafe jumping, crouch sliding, and wall climbing.

After youíre done defeating the Strogg and saving Earth from annihilation in the single player campaign for Quake 4, youíre bound to move onto the fast-paced frag fest that the multiplayer has to offer.

And while what youíve learned battling your way through Stroggos kept you alive in the single player campaign, the multiplayer is a whole different bag of tricks that youíre going to have to master if you donít want to be getting blown up all the time. GameAgent is here once again to help ease the transition from a grunt in Earthís army fighting the Strogg to a lean-mean fragging machine against real people in the multiplayer with some tips and tricks that may prove useful to you.

Auto Sport Driving Update Adds New Vehicle
6:00 AM | Andrew Lennox | 2 comments

SiniScope's Auto Sport Driving, a driving simulator available exclusively for Mac OS X, was recently updated. Version 1.2 of the racing title features the introduction of a new car set, dubbed the 357F series. This F1 styled race car adds an even faster option to the available collection. As with previous vehicles, the new car is playable on all tracks. Version 1.2 also offers some tweaks allowing better accessibility for new players.

I recently spoke to lead developer Jason Frabotta who told me that this update is one of many planned for the coming year and that he has received positive feedback from early testers. Jason also said that through these updates he hopes to transform Auto Sport Driving from a "small indie game to a very polished quality game."

Here are a few new screenshots:
