Darksiders 2 for the Mac!

Another very popular game is added on the game catoloque! Darksiders II is now playable on your Mac using Crossover! If you don’t own the game yet, I strongly advise to get it from Gamersgate tested that version on my Nvidia 640M iMac and works in great performance on my system. 512MB Graphics card is really recommended for this one. Tested the game for about an hour and no issues encountered. Enjoy this one!

Awakened by the End of Days, Death, the most feared of the legendary Four Horsemen, embarks upon a quest to restore mankind, and redeem his brother’s name. Along the way, the Horseman discovers that there are far worse things than an earthly Apocalypse, and that an ancient grudge may threaten all of Creation...

STALKER: Call of Pripyat for the Mac

For today I have a very popular game as a surprise: STALKER: Call of Pripyat! If you don’t own the game yet, I strongly advise you to buy STALKER: Call of Pripyat on which is DRM free. The Gamersgate version of the game contains TAGES DRM which will fail to start. The game works quite nice on 512mb GFX card altough the game works in Directx9 mode only (still great graphics of course) because Directx 11 isn't working in Wine yet. I created a CrossTie for the version and works quite nice using Crossover! I rated the game "Silver" for now because of the Directx 11 and the game will be quite slow if you have all graphics settings on high. I played the game for about an hour on medium settings and high resolution and that worked fine for me. Check out the PC trailer below to get introduced to the game.

The events of S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Pripyat unfold shortly after the end of S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl. Having discovered about the open path to the Zone center, the government decides to hold a large-scale military "Fairway" operation aimed to take the CNPP under control

The battle scenarios range from the landing of Allied troops in northwestern Africa to the invasion of Southern Italy, and wrap with the liberation of Paris and the final battle in Berlin! This great game is available on Gamersgate and works great using Crossover! Watch the trailer below to get convinced!

Tank Operations: European Campaign is a turn-based, tactical wargame featuring a dozen nail-biting historical scenarios set on the diverse battlefields of World War II.
