Unreal 2? What's that? Wasn't aware that existed on *any* platform.


My list is short and sweet for now:

1. Halo
2. NHL 2002
3. Metal Gear 2 (or whatever the latest is called)
4. Bad Fur Day

In other words, games that as far as I know, are only slated for PS, PS2

BTW, I read somewhere the other day Duke Forever is being ported to the Mac as we speak.

2. Empire earth
3. Star Trek: Armada II (not sure if it already is)
4. Heroes of Might and Magic IV (I'm sure it will be but within 6 months would be nice)
5. Any other decent RPG or Strategy game that catches my eye.

(i know this doesn't relate 100% to the thread title, so sue me...)

am i the only one who would like to see more arcade and console side-scrollers for the mac (and heck, even for pc)?

it's a dying art as of late, kinda like pure 2D animation, but can still have a great place on my shelves.

I would like to see a great quake 3 arena/team arena port! (probably in Cocoa by The Omnigroup!)

I remeber Graeme "Sucker" Devine talking shit of great Altivec optimized Quake3! Where is it? If 1.27 is the maximum or final version he should go hide and f*** himself!

Sorry for my language, but I´m very disappointed with this situation and Id-Sucker!

Yeah, I was really dissappointed that they didn't make it over. Especially since they had a Tiberian sun Advertisement in the Origional Mac C&C game. Sigh. Maybe I'll try out that Earth 2150 when it comes out.

since HF for mac was cancelled, let´s just hope HF2 and Counter-Strike2 gets ported to the Mac OS..

Half-Life.... and therefore be able to play Day of Defeat. One of the best mods EVER. WW2 style gaming... ahhh, just sooo great.

BTW, I have a contact at Valve. They are currently working on HL2... and guess what? Besides almost certainly being available on Mac, they will offer all of HL1 REDONE with new HL2 engine pretty sweet, eh? So, finally we will hopefully be able to play HL (still best fps single player game I have EVER played) and be able to play all the awesome mods for it, etc. That will be awesome.

1) Deus Ex 2
2) A replacement for Worms (which I still play in classic )
3) Halo
4) Master of Orion 3
5) Something to replace my aging copy of Carmageddon 2

Not in that order, and not before finishing the games that are already released (Sacrifice, Giants, etc.)
