I can finally Play Most of my games again!
Steam may be coming to Mac and Valve's titles may become available for Macs, but most of the games on Steam will still not work on Macs due to the simple fact that they're programmed for Windows and would require a rewrite to work properly on Macs.
And nothing has been confirmed, so I changed the title slightly.
Minox filled in what i would say, however that last image is fucking epic. That needs to be made as a full video, possibly in G-Mod? Hmmm... ideas.
all value games are programmed in C++ (you know the MS programming language)
and probably a very large amount of other games on steam
if they do.. i might just get into pc gaming!! but i doubt it since valve hates mac and sony
YESSS, I'm so excited about this! As soon as this hits I'm deleting my Bootcamp partition, I'll have no reason to keep Windows then.
I remember that commercial. Funny seeing that here.
I've seen this on at least 5 different sites.
All of them Mac and Apple related.
My big question is, supposing the VALVe stuff comes out for Mac, do we need to re-purchase the games? I'd love to get rid of Bootcamp on my Macbook, as I only have it really for Steam.
That's cool for Mac users but doesn't mean squat if there aren't many games. Unless there are some serious ports (that don't duck), all this means is the mac user can purchase games for their PC partitions.
With this Steam port, I bet they will just add already ported games, for the same outrageous prices.
PC gaming ftw
mac is not very famous but i guess they might have noticed the trend now and concluded tht shifting it would mean more profit than hassle/expenditure
well again it depend on what game is on steam for mac
my bootcamp windows have crapload of things, mainly games
Great news. But where's my Linux port? Come on Valve!
I don't think this will be a good idea. As others have said, the majority of games will not even work on a mac.
uhhh.. what? o.o
that has nothing to do with anything
the reason that they depend on windows is their use of directX
if they were to switch to opengl it would make porting it easier but don't take my word for it, i'm still trying to make my walking goku demo use opengl instead of directx9 (that means i'm noob)
So... it's not a good idea to bring games to the mac... because they don't work on the mac.... right.
If Steam comes to the Mac, it's coming with some games that DO work on the mac or have been made to work on it. What games? Who knows. Could just be a platform for publishers that already provide mac versions but it's a step in the right direction if they want to bring gaming to OS X.
Here's hoping they bring a few surprises with it though.
/me wants to post video of the PlanEx advert from Futurama episode "Future Stock".
Since most of their games are just based on the HL2 engine, they have to just port that. Seems pretty easy, to me.
steam for mac = crossover for free
