Although most any USB mouse will work just fine with your Mac.... I prefer my Kensington mouse.... it was cheap, looks good next to my aluminium PowerBook, and has Mac-centric software that lets me use fancy settings like programming both-click and whatnot....

You can also look for the circle with an X in it, this means it is playable for Mac OS X. It is usually shown next to the Windows Icon if the game is OS X compatible.

but to directly answer your question, no.
"Most" new games will not work with the Mac.

Check each game before you buy, better safe than pissed off.

Is nixgeek a gamer? And if so, what does he play? Does he play it online? If so, what is the server IP? And most important of all, does he fancy having his Floridan a$$ kicked? :D

HahaHHAahAAhAH!!!

Yes, I do love to game...FPS games are my fave (blame DOOM for that...not even Castle Wolfenstein 3D was enough to hook me like DOOM did :p). I'll sometimes play StarCraft on my PC and I have been wanting to install it on my new iMac as well. On my PC, I have UT G.O.T.Y. Edition, Star Trek Voyager: Elite Force, Rune: Halls of Valhalla, and some other ones floating around like Quake II. I'm looking forward to getting Quake 4 as I loved the storyline regarding the Strogg. :D

I used to play them all the time, but now with the kids it's hard to actually sit down and frag some flesh. :p I try and get some game on when I can, although lately I've just been playing around with my iMac and my new synth. Trying to get back into that side of my life again. :D

I'll let you know once I'm in the mood if you are available so you can rip me a new one. ::ha:: ;)

Incidentally, I did dabble a little wigth the UT2004 demo on all three platforms (Mac OS X, Windows, Linux). I was quite impressed with the Mac OS X performance....of course, it could have been because I tested it on a dually G4 tower. :p

The Windows and Linux versions I played with at home and both worked nicely as well.

Oh right!

You claim to be a gamer.

You claim to play FPS.

Yet in your list, I see no mention of the ultimate FPSs!

Not a single flavour of Medal of Honor!
(Note the intriguing mix of spellings: "flavour", which I spell in the English fashion, the way God intended, yet "Honor" after the American fashion, 'cos that's the title of the game. :D )

Not a single flavour of Call of Duty!

And you call yourself a gamer… :p

Sounds like a cop out to me! ::ha::


:D

I'm still playing catch up...trying to finish up those games before I move on to others. :p

Just a casual gamer I am......never said I was h4rdc0r3. ;)

You should have seen me when I still had the long "heavy metal" hairdo – I looked like the Wild Man of Borneo! My mates at work used to call me "Animal".

Anyway, back to the subject…

Catchin' up, huh? COP OUT! :p

:D

Awwww, go one then. I'll left you off just this once. But don't presume on my good nature again! ;)

It's nearly 10pm here in the UK – I gotta go home!
