If I get Windows bootcamped on my Mac sometime soon, I'll join in. Otherwise I'm going to have to sit this one out.

How exactly can you play any game on a mac w/o bootcamp XP?

I think I only tried CoD2, which runs very shitty as the OSX version, compared to Bioshock for example which runs full res in native XP. What gives?

Well, older games and emulators (and WoW) tend to run fine on my mac. I don't play any new games on it tho. That's why I also have a 360.

Also casual games run fine.

Some of the simpler ones might run okay in Mac OS X all right using Darwine - at least I remember Karoshi did. Which is pretty damn amusing, as is ROM CHECK FAIL. I'm looking forward to trying these via Boot Camp.

Canks, I get the feeling 'fuk u' is your first instinct a great deal of the time. They're all tiny downloads and easily disposable and tested by hardcore geeks so I can't imagine it'll be any hardship on your rig.

Plus you get to play an autistic child that changes the world's colors!

two weeks pass...

Anyone know roughly how long Dirty Split is? I was wondering, it seems like it might be much longer than the others on this list.

I gave up before the end of the first conversation (which is why I ain't gonna start a thread on it).

I thought what you said sounded incredibly bizarre, and then I completely understood within a minute. Something about the abuse of background sound effects, bland music, and completely unengaging dialogue. I was ready to fall asleep right there. Nice art, I guess, though?
