    Apologies if this is a double post or covered elsewhere, but most of what I saw was relating to dual boot setups. I’ve got a Mid-2012, Mac Pro5,1, A1289(EMC 2629) lying around that I’d like to use exclusively with Windows for gaming. I realize it’s probably not the best computer when it comes...

    MacOS recognising PS5 controller as 2 controllers after 11.3 update.

    Prior to 11.3 update the controller was working fine whereas now MBP 16” is detecting PS5 controller as 2 controllers. The picture is from Stadia but I’ve checked with random gamepad testing website as well and it’s detecting 2 controllers, so the issue is with Mac OS and not Stadia. Anyone else...

    Ancient gaming quest: Unreal and Unreal Tournament on Mac Os X 10.4.11

    Hi all, I am on this nostalgia trip and I want to run my beloved Unreal and Unreal Tournament on a G4 emac.

    I need the Mac for office work and light gaming. I mostly play games like terraria, rimworld and factorio. They all work fine on my 8gb Windows machine. The air is not a gaming pc but it can run older games and 2D games decently. Why get 16? It won’t run newer games, apps like office will be...
