Hooray! Picked up a copy of Civ 3 at MacWorld for $40! Guess what I'm doing tonight?! (Actually I got it Tueday, but decided to play rather than post about it. )

Wizardry 8. Wizardry was the greatest of all games back in the day. And it was first on the old Apple II. It would be great for this to come out for the Mac.

I still feel that if Apple had made some compatability between the Apple II and the Mac - we would have ruled the world!

Hmm.....

Well, I have a PS2 so I have games like GTA3, GT3, MGS2, THPS3, et al.

I am eagerly awaiting the new Links and Flight Simulator 2002.

I would like to see, like Applenut said, MS Train Simulator. I love model trains.


Not overly concerned with the games as like I said, I have a PS2.

Man, a Mac and a PS2. The best of both worlds.
post #51 of 77
Cobra- Do you know if the new version of Links is supposed to be out in stores yet? I saw that the release was changed back to early January I think after they originally said November! I also have seen ads for it in the last 2 MacWorld issues.......so what's up. I went to CompUSA and they didn't have it there, although my CompUSA has like nothing, especially when it comes to Mac. I've been waiting for this mother****er since it came out for PC! It's like the only game I want.

Thread Starter 
Everybody dying for some new FPS action out there should go download the Urban Terror mod for Q3. It's a helluva lotta fun...I just blew the last 6 hours playing online and got really good.

Simple, fun, and realistic weapons. There's nothing like sniping someone on the other side of the map with one shot. The graphics are very nice too (it's based on Q3, what would you expect?)

Add Salt Lake City 2002 to the list.

I can't stand it. Only for PS2 and PC. I have a gamecube and a mac

I would think that it would be a good title for the mac and profitable. There are no sport games for the mac. It sucks.

and why not for the gamecube?

I have always been able to see the progress in the console world by the winter olympic game.

NES has the winter olympics
SNES had Winter Olypic Games: Lillehammer '94
N64 had Nago Winter Olympics 98 and Olympic Hockey 98
Gamecube has nothing


Sigh... I have actually started pricing how much it would cost to build a cheap PC to play some of the games we miss out on.

SimCity 3000 Unlimited.

Also, I wish Maxis would offer a discount for PC owners of SC3000 that would like the Mac version. I own both SC3k and SC3k Unlimited for PC, but I am not going to shell out more money for the Mac version (plus it might run slower too).

the mac versions sucks. it's playable on new hardware but if you have "older" machines like revision a-d iMacs or Lombard or Wallstreets or Beige G3s forget about it unless you have a ton of ram for it. the port was horrible. it's as if they are running it in emulation.

still a fun game though

HalfLife was ported some time ago but Sierra in their infinite wisdom killed the product instead of distributing it.
post #58 of 77
True I got Sim City 3000 when it first came out. It didn't run well on my beige G3, and I could never save my cities. Eventually I basically stopped playing it all together with. It's cool and all but had too many problems with it. Sim City 2000 was a lot better IMHO, and I had the Special Unlimited Super Duper whatever it was version.

I am also waiting patiently for Links 2002 CE (already ordered it but Bold delayed the b*tch), Flight Simulator 2002, and I want Train Simulator too. With Bold taking this long to get Links out the door, I doubt we'll see Flight Simulator before the end of this year.

Seriously, they originally said the new Links out in October....then November....then December....then January...then now mid-Febuary.
Argh!

Add Tiger Woods 2002 to the list, however I doubt it will happen.

Is Unreal Tournement ready for OSX?

I have seen a Beta but I'm too scared to try it:

and how come it won't get online without crashing: even with the 436 upgrade and mods and all?

And whats this Unreal2?
any descriptions?

/Matt wants RtCW (which seems to be in perpetual final candidate )

Note About SC3K: It did run under emulation. Nice of them to put an already slow game under emulation.

I'm not much of a gamer, but if they ever do port <a href="http://www.unreal2.com" target="_blank">Unreal2</a>, and if it looks half as good as the screenshots, not only will I buy it, but I will pull the GeForce4MX from my new dual1G and get a real GeForce 4.

For anyone who cares, Amazon.com shows March 7th as the release date for Links Championship Edition 2002.

I wouldn't mind an X version of this game.

reviews I have read say Links is a lot better than TW2002. Actually they said TW2002 was sort of crappy
post #72 of 77
Oh I know. Read my last response in my thread "3D modeling/landscaping program" and you will see hat I much prefer the Links series over any Tiger games. I have not really played or seen much of Tiger Woods 2002, but from the screen shots I'm failing to realize why this game was a GeForce 4 launch game. The graphics look cartoonish, with square arms on the tour players. If they call that good then I'm at a loss. I've always bought into all the Links games and have not been impressed with Tiger Woods PGA Tour ('99 still the best version.....2000 ok...2001 pretty crappy). I'm a little mad at the fact that ever since Access stopped publishing the Links series we haven't been getting the newest versions until sometime after the PC version. I remember when I bought one box that was for Windows & Mac. I'm just glad that Bold is porting Links Championship Edition 2002 & it should be out soon (FINALLY!). This is THE golf sim I've been waiting for, due in part to the new (on the Mac side at least) COURSE ARCHITECT! Finally a chance to design my own course and have others test their skill (like they are going to feel skilled after finishing my beast). Links 2003 for X maybe Microshaft? Unless Bold plans working simultaneously with them for this version.

Sierra's PGA 2000 is probably #2 as far as golf sims are concerned. Pretty nice game there. Once again Sierra doesn't care about us Mac users.

I really wish more people had bought Madden 2000. Aspyr has planned to release other EA Sports titles based on the success of Madden but obviously it wasn't that good

perhaps they should have went with a more "worldly" game like soccer or hockey or even baseball.

I would love to have NHL 2002 for the Mac
post #76 of 77
Any of the EA sports games would be awesome. I think not many people bought it because the game was ancient before it came to the Mac. You can't base it on one game.

I loved C&C, Red Alert, etc. But avoid that like the plague. Even with the patch, the demo had severe lag almost constantly. The graphics were fairly poor. I don't think the control was all that smooth either, it was hard to tell when my character would jump around in all directions like 5 meters because of the lag. They did manage to keep some of the feel of the RTS games. Did I mention it had a lot of lag?
