8:08 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story
Apple's gaming site has posted an interesting new wrap-up of the recent Electronic Entertainment Expo. While not too long, the piece is packed with tidbits and hints of future goodies for Mac gamers. Included in the article are Mac-related games like Lineage: The Blood Pledge, Neverwinter Nights, Doom III, and more.
Of course Mac OS X is featured, and they've gotten some very nice quotes from folks like Wolfpack's Robert Marsa about the OS and his massively-multiplayer online role-playing game, Shadowbane:
Mac OS X is a dream for programming. The patch client interface took us about 20 minutes to do on the Mac side, a tenth of the two days we spent building the same thing on the PC.This is great news for Mac gamers looking forward to Shadowbane.
There may be more in store for Blizzard fans as well, as a company employee reveals a fifth race might be introduced into WarCraft III at some point:
Just down the hall, Blizzard’s WarCraft III: Reign of Chaos has gamers drooling and little on-screen minions throwing out classic one-liners. "Ask anyone at Blizzard," one developer from the booth says, "and they’ll tell you that in the coming months, we'll be introducing a new race into the WarCraft universe that is so cool people will be buying the game just to play them."According to the article, Mac Lineage is doing well for NCsoft, and the free Update 12 coming later this year should bring a host of graphical improvements to the title. Head over and read the full piece for more on these titles, as well as links to E3 coverage from the Mac gaming press, and be sure to have a look through Apple's photo gallery from the show floor.
