    Any body else getting this game? I am so looking forward to it. Played the demo and was totally impressed. Pre release buyers you only have 15 more min to wait BOOYAH!

    ^ lol MRU, what do you do for work? You seem to have every game under the sun, do you play them for 10 minutes then move on to another one? I'm amazed you find the time to play them all, or the $$$ to buy them all! Especially after breaking the bank ona shiny new MacPro :D

    LOL! You know me so well. That's exactly what I do :D I've finished only a handful of the games in the last 5-6 years.

    As for $$$ - the benefits of full time work, non smoker, non drinker, no mortgage :D

    gaming is my vice (or at least buying them)

    No - probably not.

    It uses the same source engine from Half Life 2

    Yeah... I've been doing some reading... It seems that a project to port the engine to OSX had been canceled... This is why the people who made myst won't use the engine again.

    Personally as a developer I can't see what was so hard about porting it to OSX... OpenGL is a generic interface and if you replace what directx does then it should work happily... Failing that (although I reckon it's not that hard) they could use the stuff transgaming are doing to port it....
