Steam for Mac is Released; Portal is Free!

May 12, 2010

No offense Valve, but I think everyone who wants portal... probably has it.

The cake is a lie.

I’m sorry, I had to. Now, to business.

In celebration of the release of Steam for Mac, Portal is being made available for FREE to everyone using steam, wether they are using a PC or a Mac. This is probably to build interest in the game before the release of the sequel, which Valve is putting a lot of money behind.

Steam for Mac is Coming… Tomorrow!

May 11, 2010

That’s right ladies and gents, the day we’ve all been waiting for. Valve is releasing the Mac version of Steam tomorrow, along with launch titles such as Portal and Torchlight. Every Wednesday after that, new games will be released for Mac. Portal 2 will be the first time Valve releases a game for PC, Mac, and XBox 360 simultaneously. After that, every game Valve develops will launch on these three platforms at the same time, so Mac gamers will be playing a new Valve game on the same day that PC gamers do!

Friends, this action by Valve will single-handedly overturn the misconception that “Macs don’t play games.” PC gamers win: they can switch to Mac. Mac gamers win: we get more games. Linux users lose. Everybody wins!
