Memoria Mac Review

One of Europe’s best-kept secrets is The Dark Eye series of RPG tabletop games.  The Dark Eye started as a paper and pen game in Germany back in 1984, outselling Dungeons and Dragons in many areas of Europe before reaching North America in 2003 renamed as the Realms of Arkania.  In relation to video games, the first title gracing the Mac within The Dark Eye universe was The Dark Eye: Chains of Satinav, released by Daedalic Entertainment in 2011. Chains of Satinav’s beautiful artistic rendered backgrounds along with a story-book fairy tale integrate the player into the world unlike other adventure games...

Fez Mac Review

In some rare cases, the tremulous history about how and who made a video-game is almost more interesting than the game itself. Fez is one these rare games. Canadian development studio Polytron, founded by the always animated self-proclaiming perfectionist Phil Fish, spent five years designing Fez, a game where the result matched the original planned imagination “almost perfectly,” a rarity in any creative project. Fez, at first glance, looks like a nostalgic retro Nintendo game: 8 or 16 bit graphics, simple gameplay and hours upon hours of pure fun. These factors, among others, are what give Fez the charm and wit to...

It’s tough to stay on top of the new games, pricing changes, abandoned games, etc. But don’t worry, this updated guide will give you a detailed overview of the best MMOs right now and answer the question: What is the best MMORPG for Mac?

Company of Heroes 2 Mac review

The field of WWII games on the Mac is somewhat crowded. With all that is already available, one might wonder if we need another contender, much less a sequel. But Company of Heroes 2 is not just any sequel, it’s one of the most intense and in-depth WW2 strategy simulator ever made, taking the reigns from its older brother and charging forward. I’m not dismissing any of the classic WW2 games such as Call of Duty, Silent Hunter, IL-2 Sturmovic, Brothers in Arms, etc. But CoH2 is a real-time strategy (RTS) game where skills on the battlefield make the player feel...

Command And Conquer Generals Mac Review

Some games have a legacy where the mention of the title sparks memories of fond gaming hours passed overtaking your enemies’ bases with sheer firepower blasting across the screen. Command and Conquer (hereafter known as “C&C,”) Generals was one of the first strategy-based war games that allowed network play with advanced 3D graphics while putting players against each other in head-to-head matches involving huge multiplayer maps. Originally released for the Mac in 2004, Aspyr has updated the game to run on the latest Mac OS and re-released it exclusively on the Mac App Store, including the the Zero Hour...
