Satellite Reign released for Mac

Satellite Reign is a real-time, class-based strategy game. You control a team of four agents, each with distinct and unique abilities, collectively battling for control of a simulated, living cyberpunk city. Customise your team with the strength to destroy your enemies head-on, or hack into their facilities to manipulate their infrastructure without them ever knowing you were even there.

Will you take down your enemies with brute-force? Covert espionage and infiltration? Or will you use propaganda to influence the citizens of the city and overthrow the controlling powers?

Fallout and Fallout Tactics for Mac!

Yep, they are back on GOG.com! Fallout, Fallout 2 and Fallout Tactics! The problem....Windows only. The reason probably because of a new launcher which needs .net 4.0 and a high resolution patch. Not something that stops me re-porting the game again :). Started yesterday with Fallout and Fallout Tactics. Fallout 2 will follow very soon as well.

Both games, Fallout and Fallout Tactics are now added in the Portingkit again so you can play the game high resolution on your Mac again. The game even works on my low-end Intel HD 5000 macbook air :D. For the basic instructions for the Portingkit installation go here...

Elder Scrolls Adventures: The Redguard for Mac

The game is tested by Vitor and seems to work all fine on his Intel Iris iMac. Below a video with some gameplay of the game.

Crookz – The Big Heist for Mac!

It’s the 1970’s: the era of Funk, flared jeans and disco-fueled Saturday nights. A crack team of expert thieves turn Grand Larceny into an art-form by using their many talents to break into the richest homes and steal the finest jewelry – all to finance their hedonistic lifestyles. That is until a lucrative museum heist in Venice involving a famous gem known as ‘Luna Stone’ ends in betrayal and the team broken apart. Five years later the remaining gang members reunite with a plot for revenge against their traitorous former comrade – but naturally, their plan will also make them rich beyond their wildest dreams…

Crookz – The Big Heist is a tactical strategy game set in the funky 1970’s with a slick and groovy atmosphere. Show off the art of thieving by plotting stylish heists and robberies; utilizing espionage and quick-thinking to avoid detection. Implement a successful strategy by assembling and kitting out your team before the job and planning the best way in.

Need for Speed Undercover (Origin) for Mac!

As promised another Origin game tonight!  This second one is "Need for Speed Undercover"! Also Need for speed Undercover was already added to paulthetall.com. The game installs fine in Origin altough you might need to restart Origin in order to launch it. In contrary of "Burnout Paradise", login into EA games account ingame does work just fine. Lots of fun is awaiting you!

Install instructions:
Open the Portingkit and download the "Need for Speed Undercover Origin" file and let the Portingkit install Origin. The open Origin and activate the Gamersgate version serial mentioned above.

BUT, before you launch you have to do one more thing…Go to your preferences of Origin and turn off  “ingame Origin” and “Automatically update the game” (select-box). If you don’t do that, the game will freeze at launch. So make sure this is turned off , also when playing any other game in Origin. Then click play to start (it may ask to update, don’t do that). Have fun!

Burnout Paradise (Origin) for Mac!

Laughed my ass out when testing the game, so even more is whished to you ;).

Install instructions:
Open the Portingkit and download the "Burnout Paradise Origin" file and let the Portingkit install Origin. The open Origin and activate the Gamersgate version serial mentioned above.

Origin update/launch failures solved in Portingkit.

Great news! The launch issue after a failing update is solved in the latest Portingkit update (nice work Vitor!). After the latest update of Origin a problem arose that there was an error message after Origin wanted to update the game. The Portingkit update has a workaround implanted that makes Origin start again after installation. It will still give an error message at the end, but after clicking "ok" and launching Origin on the local library tab, the program will launch fine again. Apply the update manually if this didn't happen automatically by the Portingkit itself, by clicking on "Portingkit" in the top bar and click "Check for updates".

For the ones who have an existing Origin Wrapper have to trash the Wrapper and re-download the game in the updated Portingkit. Enjoy!
