EA comes to Mac
Fairly recently, EA have brought some of their bigger hits to the OS X operating system. A lot of these will need a very new computer to run them, but it’s nonetheless a breath of fresh air for us oft-marginalised Mac gamers.
The 6 games brought over are:
Command and Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars
Harry Potter and the Order of the Pheonix
Need for Speed Carbon
Tiger Woods PGA Tour 08
A fairly decent selection, although they are apparently rather buggy and have very demanding specs. For more info check here.

I’m glad the Mac is getting some games.
Mac is a dying breed for gaming, but maybe no longer. 😛
Mmmm….I think not. All the best games (read: WoW, Starcraft, Gears, Halo) are platform agnostic these days. Plus, with Parallels and Boot Camp, running any Windows game isn’t a problem.
Apologies, I just realized that my comment was incorrect. Platform agnostic implies that it is not dependent on a particular OS (i.e. written in Java). Those games merely run on both major operating systems.
Regardless, I still think I’m right. 🙂
hey n-dog deluxe, email me
I wouldn’t say it’s a dying breed but it’s definitely neglected at least a little. Guild Wars and Counter Strike for example.
true, even halo came out sluggishly
