Yeah, I gave them money before even looking at the games.

Then I realized Guacamelee had a Mac version -- it's charming for the 10min I put into it.

The opening of Stardew Valley is beautiful and both teared me up and soothed me.

Stardew was a big draw for me, though gods know when I will have time to play. Playing some Conan Exiles right now. Not bad for an Early Access, survival-genre game.

They're _almost_ the same game!

The similarities are undeniable.

Wow, that's amazing value. I don't recognise many of the games though.

The sound on my 10 year-old daughter's MacBook Air died, and it looks like the standard solution is a logic board replacement, which probably costs as much as the computer is worth, so we went shopping for a new computer. She decided she wants to build her own gaming PC and record the assembly process for her YouTube channel. The following link is outside her budget, but gives you an indication of what the kids are doing these days with non-Mac hardware (she also wants to be a geologist).

A soil person?

No, I meant "soil people":

I actually like geology/geologists - except for the small subset of geologists (and engineers) that decide to become self-appointed climate experts claiming global warming isn't happening.

The original StarCraft is free for Mac and Windows. (updated to play on latest OS's)

They're going to re-issue later this year with upgraded graphics, and those versions won't be free, but the build above will remain free.

Would love a re-released standalone warcraft 3.

Never played the original starcraft. Bet my MBP can't cope with the graphics...

It's an Osborne w/ modern tech.

I mean, it's kind of insane, and ugly, but I have to say there's some interesting i.d. in that, like the magnetic well for the flippable track/number pad.

Once it's too heavy for my lap, it's not a laptop. It's a luggable. Not a bad thing, if you know what you're getting.

Is it just me or is there no Story Mode available in the iOS versions of the Injustice games? I can't confirm or deny that on my quick searches. I'm interested b/c I keep reading that the story (based on the comic, which is surprisingly good given the terrible mandated ideas its based on) is pretty interesting.
