once the new macbook pros come out (been waiting forever) i will be all over this


yeah batman arkham was really good. prob my favorite game last year. for those that liked it check out the wolverine game its like a poor mans batman with a little less stealth, more action. its not quite the quality game batman is but certainly fun.


cant wait until crackdown 2. infact any people on here want to play crackdown on live let me know i havent got any of the online achievements


also any DS people out there check out henry hatsworth its part megaman action game and part match 3 puzzle game.

What's the best graphics card available for any Mac? The 9400? Nothing released after 2006 will be able to run on them.

edit- Ok, the imacs run a 4850, which isn't horrible, but isn't great and won't run things at too high of res. And no the entire library won't be on there. 90% of the stuff out there is ran on Direct X. I'm pretty sure Valve still uses OpenGL, though.

Tecmo Super Bowl.  Eat it, bitches.
That is actually being re-done and released on PSN and XBLA.

I'm skeptical that it can have the same personality as the old Super Tecmo.  Simplicity was one of the key components of the old game.  I doubt the new will be quite as simple.
Simplicity and of course, unbalanced gameplay...which is why most people love Tecmo bowl in the first place, I believe.  I mean, Bo Jackson, really?

Anyways, I think they are going to leave that alone.

Here's a list of the new game's features:

Online Multiplayer: Find your old buddies online and challenge them to matches just like back in the day

2D + 3D Graphics: Experience all new 3D graphics with the ability to switch to the classic 2D style!

Customisable Teams and Rosters: Play as any of the 32 teams with customisable team names and rosters in full seasons

Online Leaderboards: Compare your stats in a wide array of online leaderboards

Classic Game Modes: Battle it out with your friends and kick off a game in Pre-Season, Season or Pro Bowl modes

I absolutely love this game. Still play it all the time. Thurman Thomas. Will run all over everyone
QB Eagles to Keith Byars. Also someone go back and play it, is there anyone faster than Neon Deon?
