Portal 2 Mods Will Be Cross Platform, But Tools Windows Only
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 19 comments

In a recent interview with Now Gamer Valve Software's Chet Faliszek revealed that user created levels for the upcoming Portal 2 action puzzler will be available on all platforms. The mod tools to build those levels, however, will remain Windows only.

"The mod tools have to stay on the PC side just because there’s a bunch of dependencies that require the Windows platform," Faliszek told NowGamer. "But the content that comes out is agnostic, and so we will be seeing that on all the platforms. Depending on the platform you’re on I should say, will depend on how we’re delivering it."

IMG Reviews Majesty 2: Battles of Ardania
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Inside Mac Games has posted a new review of Virtual Programming's Majesty 2: Battles of Ardania. The expansion adds four new multiplayer maps, several new monsters, new sets of weapons, and the new eight mission Heirs of the Night campaign to the Majesty experience.

Here's an excerpt from the review:

You still have access to the magical artifacts, so you can always pump the orb for money and the crown for defense. There are also loads of locations for temples in a few missions, so you can mass up on the impenetrable doomsday warriors, the paladins. When you get around eight of those over level sixteen, nothing can stop you. You still have to be careful around the groups of fifteen of the tougher rat paladins, but you can handle those with a few clerics on the side.

Inside Mac Games Interviews Amanita Design's Jakub Dvorsky
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Inside Mac Games has posted a new interview with Amanita Design's Jakub Dvorsky. In the Q&A the indie developer answered questions about development, game music, the Humble Indie Bundle experience and inspirations behind Amanita's work.

JC: Your games are DRM free, how has this worked out so far? Earlier this year you ran an "Amnesty Sale" for Machinarium. How successful was the effort?

JD: I don't believe that DRM would help us. Of course, the piracy rate is high but we are happy that many people play our games, if they like it they'll recommend it or copy it to their friends and eventually it will get to enough good people who understand that is important to support the developers if they want them to continue making games.

As for the Pirate Amnesty, it was basically well promoted 75% off sale so it worked very well but I believe it also made a few people to start thinking about the whole piracy issue from a different perspective.
