STEAM's 'In-House Streaming' system - PC games on Mac

Hello chaps, I've just done an upgrade to my PC gaming machine and to my surprise this had an affect on my Mac gaming! The performance upgrade I did meant I was able to efficiently use STEAM's In-House Streaming system for the first time and I was able to 'run' some of my PC games over my network on...

Is this the BEST time for Mac gaming EVER?

I am very lucky, I have a variety of gaming platforms available to me now - including a brand new Xbox 360 - but there was a time when my only games machine was an Apple Performa computer. Apple gaming has always been completely overshadowed by it's bigger PC cousin, and although it has enjoyed a fe...

Re: Ground Branch - the new Classic Ghost Recon? (For the Ma

Hi Mgalekgolo, yeah, games funded by Kickstarter have been in the news a lot over the past month - perhaps the best known is the new Carmagedon. I think it's a good think and shows just how disgruntled PC gamers have become with the games industry and their unwillingness - like Hollywood - to take a...

Ground Branch - the new Classic Ghost Recon? (For the Mac!)

It's been quite a while since I posted on these forums, mainly because there haven't been that many Mac games that have really gripped me recently in the way that - say - Bad Company 2 or Borderlands 2 has on the PC. Since the heady days when I played Unreal Tournament (and various excellent mods li...

Re: News from the 'dark side' (PC) - Bad Company 2 Vietnam

Comes out on the xbox in a few days... makes me wish I had money. But it looks really fucking sweet. I look forward to conquering Hill 137. (Also, that tank is a... Patton... right?) I'm not sure what changes there will for the Xbox, but bearing in mind this game is very much trimmed down compared ...

Re: News from the 'dark side' (PC) - Bad Company 2 Vietnam

Wow why not BF BC2 Iraq I think you only have to remember the furor caused by Medal of Honor Reboot and thier decision to base the gameplay in Afghanistan why EA has decided to avoid an Iraq based game (MoH:R was banned from sale in US Army stores worldwide). Better to take the time honoured game p...

News from the 'dark side' (PC) - Bad Company 2 Vietnam

In case you are wondering why I am posting up on a Mac game forum about a PC only game, well as you know EA are promising that the next installment of the popular Battlefield franchise will be available of the Mac and at the moment thier current hit called Bad Company 2 seems to be giving us a lot o...

Re: Counter-Strike Source released on Mac OS X

In a way I am quite excited about this - after all new games for Mac must be good....BUT... It's *not* a new game really is it? I appreciate Valve and STEAM who are providing us with 'new' games at the moment, but I still think Mac game developers should be doing their own thing and stop living in t...

How to make you PC gaming friends use GameRanger!

My clan-mates and I just bought 'Borderlands' on STEAM - and we were having trouble connecting using P2P hosting. Looking the issue up online we found the solution was to download and install good old Game Ranger! :) This was all very new for my PC gaming friends, but I was over the moon to get back...

Re: At last - the Ghosr Recon we deserve, Operation Flashpoint 2

...I just played my first online multiplayer co-op game of Operation Flashpoint 2. Absolutely excellent - Classic Ghost Recon! We had to knock out some SAM and Radar installations and the action was good, and was a night Op so good old green NV! :) - Put me in mind of that night Op map in Ghost Reco...

At last - the Ghosr Recon we deserve, Operation Flashpoint 2

Sorry - I know that this is a little subjective AND it's about a PC game - but as fans of the original 'Classic' Ghost Recon I suppose we always wanted just an updated version of the original (while GRAW and GRAW2 were all very nice they lacked something)... Well, yesterday I received my copy of Cod...

Re: Mac Call of Duty 4 - can you play on PC game servers?

Yes, you should be able to play on all the PC servers. Just like how you could with the other CoD versions. You probably will not get the same frame rates you do on your PC though. Thanks for that Monoman... Yes, I am using a Nvidia 8800 GTS on my PC (starting to age a bit now, but still well ahead...

Mac Call of Duty 4 - can you play on PC game servers?

I actually only discovered that CoD4: Modern Warfare was available on the Mac today... I have been playing this quite a lot recently on my PC - but the idea I could play on my Mac is quite exciting (uber humiliation for my other clan members when I admit I thrashed them using a Mac!) :) BUT - this a...

Re: GhR mod: Udmurtia Spetsnaz - fantastic!

I've just added another airsoft replica to my collection that is featured in 'Udmurtia Spetsnaz'...

Here's the AK105 with Kobra sight:
