    I can't find any! Does anyone know of some retail stores with Mac games? The closest Apple Store is Dallas (2.5 Hours)
    Come on Best Buy, You have 3 rows with 2 sides on each of PC. The only game they have anywhere is WC/SC bc its hybrid.
    It would be nice if anyone lives in Shreveport and knows of any. Thanks yall.

    Thanks. But, the closest is 2 hours away. Now that I think about it, when we go to Dallas for debate I may just try to drop in the Apple Store. Ahh, Shreveport! I love thee......(fele the sarcasm?)

    It's a shame that more companies don't release hybrid games. It's really only Blizzard that does it these days :(

    One of my local Gamestops has a a couple rows of the latest mac games. I don't know if you have one in Shreveport but it's worth a try. I still contend that the best place to search for games is online.

    Not to sound negative, but I wouldn't get you hopes up. The local gamestop (which is 2 hours away) used to sell mac games. They had a whole self dedicated to mac games. Now they don't sell any mac games except from Blizzard. What's so sad now is GameStop's pc selection is also shrinking. Once, Pc games took up an entire wall, while the consoles took up the other. Now consoles and handhelds take up about 2/3 of the store. I have also noticed this trend at EB stores also.

    do what i do order online when i do that they get shipped to my door within a few days and most the time i can find online coupons or other types of deals and save $$$
    or on the flip side you can be like my friends and even how i used to be till i read about mac piracy and specifically Halo for mac
    buy the pc version of the game to make your self feel like alright to download the mac version
    or even worse just download them although id do the first option i mentioned

    Usually for Mac games I'll get 'em from gogamer.com... but if I really really need it I just head to the local university book shop... they tend to sell Mac stuff on some University campuses so you might check there if there's a U closer to you.

    Not many places are going to stock mac games. You can ethier drive 2 hours to your "local" apple store or order off of amazon.com.
    they stock mac games.

    Yeah, I'm that's what I'll have to do if GS doesn't end up having them. Where are some sites you've seen coupons on (if you don't mind)? And what did you read about mac piracy?:confused:
