Lightbulb Gaming Forum

I would like to see a gaming forum here at EhMac. To be honest, I haven't looked for gaming threads throughout this forum because I don't want to filter through all the other stuff (which is why I think there should be a dedicated forum). Anyhow. I guess for now if I want to start a gaming thread it belongs here. So look for one in a few minutes. Otherwise, if you want to see a dedicated gaming forum on this BBS, reply to this thread.

No time to add to this thread as I am too busy playing World of Warcraft

I would concur, there does not seem to be very much gaming discussion. My guess is that gaming takes a backseat here.

I'm strictly a Blizzard fan. WoW, StarCraft, and WC3 are great. Even better is I can play with my PC friends.

Backseat? It's more like the third row in the minivan!

Gads...I love that smiley.

Checkout tigerclaw's posts on the Blizzard forum. Even though Mac WoW was built on CodeWarrior, they're already making progress and confident they'll have an x86 version in time for the first intel-based Mac.

He also said that it will continue to be supported on PPC - they don't want to **** off any of those customers.

I'd like to see a gamer forum, my Mac can run almost any game my PC can (I'm bitter about Half-life though). More games being available for mac these days made my switching completely pain free.

i recently upgraded one of my XP boxes, faster cpu and ram and today installed a nvida 5200 128 mb 8x agp card all for under $300

tested out demos of doom 3 and area 51
area 51 is "mondo cool"

as much as i hate xp, i gotta admit it's much chepaer to build a decent gaming box on the wintel platform

I'm a bit more into console gaming, but I like the strategy games such as Railroad Tycoon and Warcraft, so I go for those on the Mac. I think I might play more types of games on the Mac if my machine were fast enough to handle higher resolutions on the first person shooters than my GameCube does. That's still a big maybe, because the controller on my console is better.
Might get Railroad Tycoon 3 this year. Anyone tried it?

Right now I'm playing through the campaigns on StarCraft to try to get to the secret level, and playing through Prince of Persia: Warrior Within and Metroid Prime on the GameCube.
