Black Ops fans out there rejoice! To celebrate the imminent arrival of Remote Console to Black Ops (which will allow players to host their own multiplayer servers), Aspyr decided it was time to spice things up and has a whole special weekend planned for Black Ops players. You can check out our review for more information on the game.
Big sale: 50% off Black Ops and DLCs
Starting today, Call of Duty: Black Ops and all its DLCs are 50%, until next monday. All major digital stores will offer 50% this weekend but it seems Game Agent is the only place you can find this deal right now!
Multiplayer weekend and prices
Big sale aside, this weekend will be all about the Multiplayer:
Additionally, Aspyr will be hosting a special Black Ops Multiplayer Weekend running from Friday, May 24 – Monday, May 27. You’ll need to keep an eye out for Aspyr players on Call of Duty: Black Ops servers–they will be giving top Call of Duty: Black Ops players instructions on how to get a coupon for a free Aspyr game all weekend long!
Many people believe Mac gaming has no real community, specially when it comes to Multiplayer gaming. In some cases, I have to admit they do have a point. Aspyr’s efforts to boost the Black Ops multiplayer community is exactly what we need. Hopefully, more developers (but also blogs, clans or even stores) will take notice.
By the way, Mac Gamer HQ takes notice and is working on something too, stay tuned for more!
Mac Game Store and Feral Interactive have today officially announced the first game in the Feral Game Bundle to be made available via the Mac Game Store digital distribution service.
The sale will take place between Monday 27th May and Sunday 2nd June. During this period, six games will be made available in the bundle at the price of $19.99 for all six games! You heard that right!
The first game selected is Star Wars Lego (The Complete Sage edition). During the next week a new game will be announced every day to be added to the bundle until the day it becomes available. So keep checking back to the Mac Game Store Facebook page for the announcements or, if Twitter is more your thing, check the Feral Interactive Twitter profile.
Following on the tails of the highly successful Humble Bundle scheme it is apparent this is where the team at the Mac Game Store have picked up on the idea and I for one love it. This is exactly the type of deal Mac gamers need at the moment whilst waiting on the next round of releases/announcements.
Here’s hoping for picking up quality games at a low low price to get me through the spring.

Back and forth going around and around in circles were our conversations about what the Mac game of the year is. We had a four main criteria which each game to check to be considered, these were;
Eventually we narrowed the field down to three games, Deus Ex: Human Revolution, Batman: Arkham City and Borderlands 2. All three games are a tribute to Mac gaming and are simply a joy to play but alas there can only be one winner.
Kickstarter has given game developers, and gamers, a good opportunity to make the games they want. This community based game developing is a fascinating method to make things finally happen. Gamers get the games they want, and game developers are more than happy to make them.
Kickstarter also provides funding for the developers as the devs make the game, and this means the games will have more chances to actually see the light of day. With the Mac becoming an increasingly bigger market for game developers, it’s essential to have a native Mac port.
Here are a few games that I feel have a lot of promise. Read More…
