Critically acclaimed real time strategy game, XCOM: Enemy Unknown, has just hit the Mac App Store with a new Elite Edition, just for the Mac.
XCOM stands for Extraterrestrial Combat Unit, and the game lives up to its name, with turn-based tactical battles on a global scale, with a solid storyline and deep role playing game systems to boot. If you’re a sci-fi gamer who loved StarCraft I and II, XCOM is right up your alien-infested alley.
Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing is one of my favorite Sega games on iOS, and it’s making its way to the Mac thanks to Feral Interactive. The game will be available to download from the Mac App Store tomorrow, April 4, with support for Game Center and iCloud game syncing.
We told you that LEGO The Lord of the Rings was coming out this week, but if you were waiting for it to show up on Steam, you might be as disappointed as I was when I went to check it out tonight. The Steam store entry for the video game only shows PC compatibility, making my poor Mac-loving head sad.
Luckily, though, you can purchase LEGO The Lord of the Rings via the Mac Game Store as well as directly from Feral Interactive, the studio that ported the game to Mac in the first place, for the same $30 as it would cost you on Steam.
We’ve got lots of love for the LEGO series games. They often have an uncanny ability to capture the feel of their parent titles — in a way that’s cuter than a basketful of kittens, but much more fun. The Lord of the Rings is the latest title to join the collection, and it’s coming to OS X next week.
Though, seriously, this is why we want to play the game, right?
Feral Interactive is finally getting around to releasing the Game of the Year Edition of Batman: Arkham City for the Mac. The second installment of the critically acclaimed Arkham series, which started with Batman: Arkham Asylum, itself released on PC and console versions in 2009. The Mac OS X version of Arkham Asylum came out in November of last year, and now, a year later, we’ll have the pleasure of playing this fantastic game on our Macs.
The introduction of the Mac App Store earlier this year has seen a boost in big-name games coming to our Macs. Rockstar Games has re-released its awesome Grand Theft Autotitles, Aspyr brought us (but we didn’t want it!) Duke Nukem Forever, and now Feral Interactive is set to release Batman: Arkham Asylum on October 13.
Still sulking into your keyboard after you dropped $45 on Duke Nukem Forever for your Mac? Well, we did warn you. Fortunately, Feral Interactive is going to cheer you up with one of this year’s most anticipated games: Deus Ex: Human Revolution will be hitting the Mac this winter.
