Dexter The Game Now At Macgamestore
6:00 AM | IMG News | Comment on this story has announced a new addition to its webstore. Dexter The Game, an adventure puzzle title based on the popular Showtime television series, puts players in the role of Dexter who must carefully choose his victims while protecting his identity.

Dexter Morgan is a serial killer. Driven by his need to kill, maintaining his average-guy facade has never been easy. He spends his days as a blood spatter analyst for the Miami police department, but it’s after hours when Dexter is able to fulfill the needs of his dark passenger, exacting his own brand of justice on those criminals who truly deserve to die.

In the game, help Dexter choose his next victims while always protecting his identity. Analyze crime scenes, uncover evidence and use stealth tactics to stalk your prey. Is the case better served by the courts or the Dark Passenger? The outcome of every choice and action resolves around the Code of Harry: only kill the guilty, maintain the mask, and above all, don’t get caught!


  • Hours of game play with tense action in 3D environments as Dexter stalks his prey.
  • Over 1100 lines of dialogue, including original voiceovers from Michael C. Hall.
  • Includes an original storyline with writing by series producer Tim Schlattmann.
Dexter The Game is available for $9.99 (USD).

City Of Heroes Drops Support For OS X 10.5
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Paragon Studios has announced a change in system requirements for its super hero themed MMO, City of Heroes. The decision comes as a result of Apple no longer supporting Leopard (OS 10.5), prompting Paragon to now offer support only for OS 10.6 and 10.7.

Due to Apple no longer supporting Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard, we are unable to continue supporting that specific Mac Operating System.

As of today, after the end of the maintenance, the Mac system requirements for official support from the City of Heroes team are Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard and Mac OS X 10.7 Lion.

Thank you for your understanding.

Eschalon: Book II Reviewed
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

PC World has published a new review of Basilisk Games' Eschalon: Book II. The RPG sequel includes improvements like re-rendered tiles, new weather effects, new skills, new monsters, and a larger world to explore.

Hearkening back to some of the oldest games in the genre, Eschalon Book II demands you carry sufficient food and drink to sustain you on your voyage, plunges you into impenetrable darkness if you don't have a torch, and has your weapons break and your armor tear with depressing regularity. "There ain't no such thing as a free lunch" is the rule here; if you swap out your bow for a sword and shield when the bandits have closed on you, you will take several blows while you do so. The amount of loot you can carry is limited by weight. Fighting in the dark is very difficult... but if you want to hold a torch, you can't hold a shield or a two-handed weapon, and torches burn out. Merchants have limited supplies of goods and restock infrequently; it's quite possible to buy out all the food the innkeeper has to sell. The cost of armor and weapon repair--and healing potions--can easily chew up the reward from any quest.

This pain has a purpose, though: Knowing you didn't just idly click your way through makes your success all the sweeter. Eschalon: Book II requires you to make choices, most especially when to run. It also encourages some creative solutions that aren't handed to you by simply clicking in the right spot. (Hint: Those heavy barrels of gunpowder you'll find have a million uses around the home and office.) Characters can invest skill points in many skills, and trying to learn to do everything will often leave you unable to do anything.
