REVIEWS Loadout Review
What do you really expect of a shooter these days? Loadout probably already has it somewhere in gobs of gameplay, but you won’t hear me saying it’s worth your time.

Dokuro (PC) Review
Dokuro makes the jump from handheld to PC, but does it help or hinder this unusual platformer?

Steam for Mac off to a buggy start

Posted on Wednesday, May 12 @ 21:44:27 Eastern by
As many of you well know, Steam made its big jump over to the Mac platform today.  Hooray!



I've been hotly, hotly anticipating the arrival of the only form of DRM PC gamers seem to tolerate, especially because dual-booting is pain in the ass.  Sure, dedicating a third of my hard drive space to Windows XP only so I could play Team Fortress 2 was worth it for a long time.  After I heard Steam was going to make the jump in April (Valve time: May), I removed the partition and waited patiently.  And then I kept waiting.

As the sneak peeks and previews rolled in, I continued to twiddle my thumbs in anticipation.  Finally, a hard date was set (Today, May 12th), but my skepticism kept me from jumping to excitement.  I was disappointed that Team Fortress 2 wouldn't be part of the launch date celebrations, but figured that the delay would give me plenty of time to replay Portal.

Unfortunately, I'll be forced to continue waiting.  Steam's debut on the Mac platform has been unfortunately buggy, and not just for me!  A quick look at the Steam Forums will net you quite a bit of reading material, mainly generated by people facing unexpected issues.  Mine happens to center around Portal being one big glaring white screen, with no real visuals to speak of in sight.

How has your Steam for Mac experience gone?  And if there aren't any Mac users out there in GR-land, why don't you take this opportunity to deride my computing choice?
