CoM - borderlands2_mainframe

Gaming on the Mac got a whole lot better once Steam (by the fine folks at Valve) entered the equation. With the addition of this gaming portal, game development for the Mac rose to new heights, with games like Portal and others that were previously not as easy to port over to OS X becoming available.

Borderlands 2 is an example of one such game, and Cult of Mac Deals has it for $11.99 for a limited time [ends tonight at midnight!].

It Looks Like Borderlands 2 Will Be Coming To The Mac

It Looks Like Borderlands 2 Will Be Coming To The Mac

So, I hopped onto Steam last night to see what was new, and noticed something amazing in my list of Mac games for the service. Borderlands 2 is in the list of the Mac games on Steam. Woah!

It took me a minute to even register this fact, as I’m used to only seeing it on my gaming PC. In fact, that I own the game already on Steam is probably why I even see it on my Mac at all.

This is great news for all Mac gamers, of course. But the details are thin on the ground.

Welcome to Pandora: Borderlands Special Edition Coming To Mac on December 3rd

Welcome to Pandora: Borderlands Special Edition Coming To Mac on December 3rd

Gearbox Software’s Borderlands was one of my favorite video games of the past year, but unless you’re willing to reboot into Boot Camp, it doesn’t run on a Mac.

It’s a shame, because in many non-trivial ways, it’s the best multiplayer Diablo-like since, well, Diablo II. Borderlands takes place on a Mad Max style extraterrestrial world in which every chest, container or killed enemy spits out a treasure trove of randomly created weapons, each with their own unique special abilities.

I spent about 80 hours playing through Borderlands when it was released on the Xbox 360 earlier this year… such a substantial block of time that the inamorata can’t even hear the game’s title without whiplashing herself with an eye roll… so no one tell her that Borderlands is coming to the Mac coming December 3rd, complete with all the DLC, for the quite reasonable price of $49.95.
