Epic can continue to support Unreal Engine on Mac and iOS for now

While Epic and Apple's legal battle over app stores isn't due in court until next year, one important matter is settled for now: Epic will get the keep the Apple developer accounts which let them update and maintain Unreal Engine on Mac and iOS. Apple had threatened to disable those too, not just the accounts Epic use for Fortnite, until a judge approved Epic's appeal…

Valve are cutting off SteamVR support for Macs

If you bought a VR kit for your Mac and planned on using SteamVR, then you are out of luck. Valve are ending VR support for MacOS, so they can "focus on Windows and Linux". Mackers can still access legacy builds, but this means no more improvements, and no more bug-quashing.There are ways to jack in without using SteamVR, but still. Ain't that a kick…

Rocket League ending Mac and Linux support because they represent “less than 0.3%” of active players

Last week, Psyonix revealed they're going to stop supporting Rocket League on Mac and Linux, ending the ability to use any of the online functions on those platforms. They explained that it was "no longer viable" to support Mac and Linux as they continued to upgrade the game with "new technologies". This was a bit of a vague reason that naturally left a lot of…

Rocket League is ending support for Mac and Linux in March

It's bad news if you play Rocket League on Mac or Linux - in March developer Psyonix are stopping support for the platforms, taking away online multiplayer in one final update. Players will still have access to all of the offline stuff though, so you'll still be able to play with your friends either locally or using split-screen. You just won't be able to join…

After eight years, Murder Dog IV faces justice on Mac

Court is back in session. The case? The vanishing of dozens of 32-bit Mac games from Apple's operating system. Now, we've been told these are due to so-called "compatibility issues". And yet, a killer canine just made its way to MacOS after eight years off the grid, seemingly unaffected by these disappearances. Your honour, I believe this must be more than mere coincidence. I call…

MacOS “Catalina” update is about to punt 32-bit games off the platform

Oh, to be a Mac owner. Not that we've got it great on PC - my rig's been bricking it since last week's Windows update, after all - but it's been a long time since a big OS update killed half of my game library. Desktop gaming always gets around to leaving a generation behind, though. 32-bit applications have been on the chopping block for…

Feature: More than Marathon

Remembering old games on Mac is like visiting a lost world

My first videogame memory is about falling. I remember a blue sky and green land and some yellow rectangle where I was supposed to land, but couldn’t, because I was three or four years old and videogames were new and confusing. Unable to control my plane, I could only watch it spiral and crash. The game was Hellcats over the Pacific. I learned this only…

Total Warhammer 2 jacks into Linux & Mac

Official Mac and Linux ports of Total War: Warhammer II are out now, and folks who already got it for Windows have those now for free too. As is the way with Total War, the ports are handled by long-running portpeeps Feral Interactive. While running Windows games on Macs and Linux b0x0rs is easier than it once was, especially with Valve working on Steam's new…

Desperados: Wanted Dead Or Alive updated after 17 years to work on modern Windows

Hot diggity dawg! After years crawling the digital desert lower than a lizard, real-time tactical stealth murderer Desperados: Wanted Dead or Alive now plays nicely on modern systems. Publishers THQ Nordic last week released an update making the 2001 game support modern Windows along with Mac and Linux, to fix the problem of it crashing like a horse full of rotgut. Desperados is a tip-top…

A Total War Saga: Thrones Of Britannia invades Macs

Three weeks after its debut on Windows, A Total War Saga: Thrones Of Britannia is now out on MacOS too. If you already own The Creative Assembly's latest historical strategy game on Steam, hey, you've now got it for Mac too; thankfully we're long past the days when Mac ports were sold separately. And sure, Macs can boot to Windows nowadays, but it's still handier…

Hitman hits Mac, man

Ooh it's all go for Ian Hitman these days. Developers IO Interactive have kept the rights to their stealthy murder series and become an independent studio after former owners Square Enix ditched 'em, a demo of the recent episodic Hitman [official site] arrived yesterday as its prologue chapter became free, and oh! the game is now playable on Mac too. The Mac port by porting…

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided Jacking Into Linux & Mac

Yeah, yeah I hacked my cyberlegs to run a custom kernel I compile myself. You've got to, you know. The Man fills your legs with all sorts of spyware, you know. Yeah, the 'Aug Incident' and all that but did you know The Man can read your pedometer count, correct your gait for you, and even jack olfaction sensors to tell when you last changed…

Sims 4 Mac Out Now, Free For Sims 4 PC Owners

It seems ludicrous that a simulation of the middle-class lifestyle and the attendant pursuit of ever-more wealth and consumer goods isn't already available to owners of Macintosh computers, but there you go. In any case, The Sims 4 [official site] - but won't someone think of the pools? - is now out for OSX, and the good news is that if you already own it…

Science Victory: Civilization 5 Now On SteamOS And Linux

Is... Is this E3 news? On day three, I can't tell anymore. Did Sid Meier swing on a trapeze across the E3 concourse to announce that Civilization 5 was now available on SteamOS and Linux? Did Aspyr gather the world's press in an art deco theatre to reveal that this was their first Linux port, after years of porting popular games to Mac? Or is…

Spelunking Fun: Pixeljunk Shooter Comes To PC

What happens when you pour water over lava? You get steam. I think when Q-Games' Pixeljunk Shooter came out for the PS3 in 2009, where the player manipulates the levels using molten rock, water, and a magnetic fluid that I'm going to call "Polly", they were dropping a hint that it would eventually end-up on Steam. I told no-one of this supposition, but now I…

Superstar Siblings: Rush Bros Demo

Would you rather cause a crowd of people to move as one, surrendering their bodies to a primal need that is the closest many of them will come to a spiritual experience, or unblock a toilet? Being a DJ is six hundred million times more amazing than being a plumber, so it stands to reason that Rush Bros is a much better game than anything…

Esther In The Headlights: Dear Esteban

This is the very first time that you have been here before. The whales are watching you. They know what you did. What did you do? Ask the whales but they won't tell you because they are silent. Mysteriously silent. You probably killed someone and it might have been an accident but there's almost definitely blood on your hands or lipstick on your collar, or…

Now People With Expensive Silver PCs Can Play GW2 Too

Are you moderately to incredibly affluent? Then chances are high that you own a Macintosh computer. There is a slimmer chance beyond this that you have installed Boot Camp and thus Windows on your Macintosh computer, in turn allowing you to play whatever PC games you so wish. More likely you think it too complicated by half, or are like the guy who visibly recoiled,…
