A tad redundant with this thread already going strong: http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=1449240

Still nice to see the discount. Good stuff.

Yeah, I guess, but I felt that was more of an anticipation thread. Now its here I felt I should shout it to the world! Plus I felt people would appreciate the discount since it makes it cheaper than steam.

Plus I also meant to add that Aspyr have pulled support for the NVIDIA GeForceŽ 650M graphics card at the last minute. They were hoping for driver help to make it happen but said unfortunately its not going to be ready in time for launch, but they will add support in the coming weeks.

Oh yeah, in the UK too now. But MacGames.co.uk has it cheaper with the discount anyway so surely its a no brainer!

Wow - installing process takes a lot of system resources (2011 imac 21.5 off the shelf top spec with 12 GB ram).

It really doesn't run well. I can't believe the latest Macs with Nvidia graphics card aren't supported. Will they ever be? I will demand a refund if this isn't fixed soon.

A patch from Aspyr / Nvidia is in the works to get the 650M supported.

Haha, no, sooner than that hopefully! Aspyr were hoping to have NVIDIA support in time for launch yesterday, but it just didn't happen in time, so I suspect a just few more weeks. They only announced the change in system requirements just hours before they released the game, so they obviously thought it might happen right up to the last minute

You can still get it from MacGames.co.uk, with the discount code above - even if you're in the US. its a download, so location doesn't matter even though its primarily a UK site.
