It isn’t a secret that Mac computers get the dick as far as video game releases are concerned. But a lucky few get squeezed through. Some take longer than others, but RAGE: Campaign Edition is now available for Mac users worldwide. Lucky you, you’ll have access to the sewer missions I missed out on because I didn’t buy the DLC or pre-order the game. You buy, now?
If you are a huge Back To The Future fan, you should be following Back To The Future: The Game. The 5 part series is on it’s 5th and final episode entitled Outatime. The voice of Marty is done by the excellent AJ LoCascio, you almost wouldn’t know the difference if you didn’t know it wasn’t Michael J. Fox. Check out the trailer below giving you a little from all 4 episodes and the 5th which is out now on the Mac and PC, and coming soon to the Playstation Network and iPad.
Notice it says “Season Finale”, which could be hinting at another season assuming the game has done well enough. If you want to give the game a shot, PC and Mac users can download the 1st episode for free over at Telltale Games. iPad users can download the 1st episode for free for a limited time from the iTunes store.

Torchlight was well worth the wait for it to make its way to the Xbox 360 and after its critical and commercial success the chances of its sequel doing the same are looking pretty good. Runic isn’t content to simply improve on some of the issues the original had, instead, they’re going to be adding some major features to the game. Some of the confirmed additions include co-op (likely to be between 2-4 players), improved character customization, four character classes (Torchlight had three), multiple hub towns and a much longer campaign.
Since a dungeon crawler is only as good as the monsters you’ll be spending most of your time slaying it’s important for them to be pretty damn cool. As we wait for Torchlight 2′s big reveal at E3 this summer here’s a look at six of the potentially dozens of monsters we’ll be stabbing, bisecting, incinerating, poisoning, freezing and electrocuting when the game releases sometime later this year.

It was only a matter of time, but it would seem that zombies have taken over the entire world. World of the Living Dead will be an in browser playable zombie survival game. In the game you play as operatives of the National Emergency Control and Relief Agency (NECRA), and you will have to guide survivors through the zombie infested streets of Los Angeles County.
Real life elements will come into play, eating, drinking, fighting for supplies. There will also be skill trees for characters, real world weapons, and once someone dies, they aren’t coming back. Screens and features past the break. Check out the games official site HERE, and give them your email to sign up for the beta. READ MORE
The runaway PC hit Torchlight has finally made its way to consoles, and might I say it’s about time? When I was young (before I became the bitter old soul I am today) I spent an inordinate amount of time pillaging dungeons and raiding the depths of Hell itself in the Diablo series. Sadly, I’m a Mac convert so these addictive activities were no longer available to me once Steve Jobs delicately lured me to the dark side with promises of shiny, and incredibly expensive gadgets. Since then I’ve dreamt of the better days when I wasn’t just Adam, but Adam, The God of Sex and War, and now I finally have a game that lets me dawn my demon slaying gear so I can kick some monster ass yet again.
A little bit before Halloween I posted about a new Back To The Future game. Christopher Loyd is back playing Doc. And while they couldn’t get Michael J Fox to do the voice of Marty, AJ LoCascio does an amazing job filling in.
Telltale games is working on the game for NBC Universal, and they have also signed on to do an episodic Jurassic Park series as well. This Back To The Future takes place a short time after the 3rd movie. Doc is lost in time and it’s up to Marty to find him. Past the break for screens. READ MORE
If a brand new wanted ad from Blizzard looking for a lead designer, lead programmer and senior producer for its Diablo 3 team based here in the states is anything to go by, there might just be some hope for a console version of Diablo 3. Blizzard has said in the past, adamantly one might add, that they are first and foremost a PC and Mac centric developer (with an emphasis on the former), and that’s the reason their recent titles like World of WarCraft and StarCraft 2 haven’t seen any console ports. With the Diablo franchise however, things might change.
As I said these positions are for Blizzard’s US-based Diablo 3 team and in their ad they said, regarding a console-based Diablo game, that “with proper care the gameplay could suit the console platform, and we’re interested in seeing what talent out there might be interested in such a project.” This is all very exciting but should in no way be considered a confirmation of a long requested Blizzard title on home consoles. I haven’t had that scratch itched since StarCraft released on the N64 a decade ago so the thought of a Diablo game on my Xbox 360 (or PS3) is damn thrilling. Hit the jump for the full post, in all it’s rumor-rousing glory. READ MORE
25 years. It’s been 25 effing years since Back to the Future graced our movie theaters. It’s also been about the same amount of time since we’ve had a good back to the future game. Oh wait, we never really did. And that my friends, is a damn shame. Will this new game break the mold?
“We’re very excited to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Back to the Future franchise with a completely new adventure,” said Dan Connors CEO Telltale Games. “It’s been an amazing experience to be part of reuniting Marty McFly and Doc Brown on their continuing quest. Back to the Future fans will have a great time helping to control the integrity of the space-time continuum.” READ MORE
Left 4 Dead fans rejoice! The long awaited dual compatible DLC for Left 4 Dead and its sequel went live Tuesday for the PC and Mac, and after a brief delay became available for all the hungry xbox 360 gamers out there.
I love me some StarCraft 2 and I’ve even been known to enjoy the occasional horror game every now and then so this mod entitled Project Vector looks pretty damn cool. You assume the role of a space marine with shiny LEDs on his back who has the miraculous ability to float towards his enemies making them cower in fear as they get disintegrated by the gnome cannons placed on each of his breasts.
None of that is true. Actually, not much is known about the story but it’s probably safe to say you play as a marine who’s hunting aliens in an assortment of eerie environments (like the cruiser in the video after the jump). The goal of the mod is to reshape StarCraft 2, a real-time strategy game, into a fully playable third-person horror game, and to that extent I think it’s all coming along quite nicely. Check out some very creepy gameplay after the jump. READ MORE
Few games nowadays can truly be called survival horror. Games have evolved beyond dark corridors and empty gun clips. However, Amnesia stand out from the rest. Old school point and click PC horror at it’s best. But it’s for the Mac also. Check out the trailer.

RAGE has been in the works now for a couple years, and we really don’t see much in the way of news. And I don’t have any news right now! But a few new screen shots past the break.
RAGE is a sometime in the near future post apocalyptic first person shooter. However, the game will also introduce a racing element. The game has been pushed back several times, and is now looking at a 2011 release on the PC, Playstation 3, Xbox 360, Mac, and Linux. READ MORE
Amnesia: The Dark Descent is a 1st person survival horror game being made for the PC and Mac. You will play as Daniel, who wakes up in an old creepy as hell castle, and barely remembers anything. You battle inner demons as well as outer as you explore the castle.
Frictional Games is manning the project, and for those who don’t know, they are the ones behind the Pnumbra game series. Another PC, creeptastic survival horror game. Past the break for screens. READ MORE
What you thought I was kidding about zombie day? No no, plenty of zombies to go around. PopCap’s Plants Vs Zombies has bumped Bejeweled out of the number 1 spot taking the title of “Best iPhone Game Launch Ever.” In a mere 9 days the game sold over 300,000 copies. The game sells for $2.99 on in the Apple Store.
It has already been said that the game has made over 1 million dollars from the Apple Store alone! That’s pretty awesome, especially with all the zombie games out there in the mobile phone world. Bejeweled 2 is also a PopCap game, so knocking it out of the top spot is more icing on an already delicious cake for the company. Past the break for screens. READ MORE
