Shadowrun Returns Mac Review

After a six-year hiatus, fans can finally rejoice as Shadowrun has returned. In addition to this, it’s finally arrived on the Mac, for the first time in its long, 20 year history. New developers to the series, Harebrained Schemes, have much to live up to after the mediocre Shadowrun for Xbox 360, way back in 2007. Things are looking good, however, as they’re promising a faithful and compelling refresh of the beloved series. The result is Shadowrun Returns, the sixth video game in the long-running series. Beginning with a board game in 1989, the game’s unique mix of fantasy and cyberpunk was...

Astro A40 + Mixamp Pro Review

But sooner or later you will probably feel like “kicking it up a notch”.  Maybe you want some extra macro keys or perhaps a number pad if you are left-handed (like me). The point is when it comes to computer gaming some users have a hefty advantage over others depending on the gear they have. If...

Cities: Skylines Mac Review

When you think city-building games, what’s the first game that comes to mind? I bet it’s SimCity, which can be expected as it dominated the genre for almost two decades. But things have changed lately. The latest SimCity, released for Mac in 2013, promised to create the most sophisticated and entertaining city-building game ever. But SimCity’s launch was a catastrophe, and the game never fully recovered from that. Luckily, developer Paradox Interactive was paying attention. SimCity’s awful fumble gave them the confidence to try the unthinkable: challenge SimCity’s 20-year reign. On March 2015, Paradox Interactive released Cities: Skylines for Windows, Mac, and Linux. Want...
