I have a LAN session coming up at work for this game. Usually for a LAN session I have to put a copy of windows on my macbook. Will I be able to run the mac version and the others run a windows version?

Thats a sweeping generalization, you stated that like it was a fact. I personally find a lot of them to be gripping and entertaining, especially the likes of Battlefield 3. I also play the DayZ Zombie mod for Armoured Assault 2, don't lump all first person war games together like they're all the same.

Firstly, that's not bad performance. I'm going to guess that you've got a MacBook Air plugged into a monitor. The HD4000 is not a hugely capable graphics card. There's where your so called 'performance issues' lie. If you had a badly ported game, you'd know it. It would crash, run at a lower framerate than the hardware is capable of (which it isn't). The Source engine is without doubt one of the best-ported engines there is.

Secondly, I don't think you have a clue how beta testing works.

Thirdly, just because they didn't add stuff that you personally wanted, doesn't make it a bad game.

1. This is bad performance because i achieve better one on 6yo windows machine with worst configuraction up to 250fps.
I know HD4000 is not bad at all and not awesome for gaming but squishing more then 60avg fps is just not enough for that GPU. It is rowing at lower framerate than my hardware is capable of.
2. I think i was in more betas then u will ever be and beeing a developer for at least a decade got me feeling what is bad port between win and mac OS.
3. Where i wrote that game is bad?

I know its source engine from 04 but still this is 2012 game...

This is awesome! Im incredibly excited for this game, brings back so many memories.

Though I have to say, my 2009 MBP will probably not run this. I guess I'll have to buy bite the bullet and buy a gaming PC for CS GO, BF3 and SCII

Get sli 680s like me
Max Payne 3 at max settings always over 60fps is so good, then you get crap console ports which stutter even on my pc. Makes me sad

The game has win/mac cross platform multiplayer, you should be fine.

Regarding points 1 and 2. Have you done a comparison by running CS:GO on a bootcamp partition on the same machine? I know there are still confounding variables, such as the performance of windows HD4000 drivers (which I'm guessing would be better than mac's by a mile), but it would be interesting to see what result you get.

It has a bot mode.

Either you or your computer is broken.

The game is NOT a port from Windows, and it runs the exact same between Windows and Mac.. This is actually why I deleted my Windows partition.

I would love to see a game you've developed, please share with us.

how does steam run on OSX now? i installed it when they gave TF2 away for free and i must say it was a dreadful experience, it took up so much disk space (with games).. it was slow, crashed often and took forever to download a game..

also how will this run on a retina?

How about you get your MacBook seen to by Apple. It's pretty obviously not supposed to be that bad. My 13" 2011 ran TF2 fine with lowish settings.

Unless by "can barely run" you mean "IT'S ONLY PUMPIN' OUT 113 FPS, I NEED AT LEAST 240!!"

So CS is ruined... I am playing a fancy COD type game with CS maps... but this isn't CS by a long shot anymore.

Where is the simplicity? Where is the simpleness ?

It's ruined. They should have never even thought about graphics.. They should have kept it clean and simple... But no.. We need graphics, we need loads of **** laying around in every map, we need a moving camera when having recoil.
We need some fancy crossair, we need to change the whole buying system AGAIN!, we need to change the outfits...

PLEASE! CS is NOT about graphics and complexity...

VALVE get your **** together an give me my CSgoLite version pleas!

Probably because you are getting old

Ah, feel free to no patronize this website then if it's not living up to your journalistic standards as to what headlines make the front page and which don't.

Seriously, vote with your absence! Make your concerns be known by never coming back here! They loss in revenue from their ads will hit them in the pocket-book, and show that you're not a person to be trifled with.

By that logic every single iPhone related post should be moved to the iOS blog as they may be deemed of interest only to iPhone owners.

It's a significant piece of news. Just because it doesn't interest you, that doesn't mean it shouldn't be on the homepage.

Given the scope of the sales of it's predecessors, this IS a significant news post that DOES deserve to be on the homepage. I say this as someone who rarely plays a game on a Mac.

haha. GO is clearly more tailored to the casual gamer, so it is a nice change up from typical CS. If you want competitive play stick to CS or CSS

Why front page

To you haters complaining why this is front page material.

1. Apple never used to be able to run games, PERIOD.

2. This is one of the most popular selling games. Having it come to MAC is big news.

3. Take your stupid iPhone 4s and iPhone 5 schematic difference stories and shove it. If I can sit through all those stories you can accept this story.

4. Have a martini and relax

I plunked down my $15, WELL worth it for me

This is the first game I ever bought through Steam ... CS was THE game that I played back in the day. I used to have an install of 1.3 to play on specialized servers and then the current install for competitive play

I loaded it up and got a few rounds of de_dust under my belt ...

"Rush the bomb!"

Brings back memories!
