    Borderlands for Mac is only sold via the Mac App Store and not Steam as it's a Feral port. Will this cause any complications when trying to play co-op multiplayer with PC users who run it via Steam? :)

    For that matter, you can get it straight from Feral Interactive, probably the best as far as DRM free and support goes . . .

    You have to use GameRanger on the PC and Mac to have online multiplayer. You also need to be running the 141 final patch on the PC. LAN mode is also supported Mac<->PC. This is true for all Mac versions, DVD, App Store or other download stores.

    App Store aside we have our own DRM which is simple and does not have any hidden copy protection applications or services installed. You install the game then activate the game online. That's it! From then on you can play the game as much as you want offline or online without any DRM services or "phone home" systems getting in the way.

    As someone who helped design the Feral DRM I can tell you it was designed using the thought "What would I think if I was a customer?". It took a while but but sticking to that rule meant we ended up with a user friendly DRM that stays out of the way while keeping the pirate horde under control. :D

    GameRanger still exists? Awesome! I haven't used that since I had a 300MHz PowerMac G3.

    Yeah as Edwin said - LAN works cross-platform, plus GameRanger allows both Mac and PC to play online multiplayer - you can download GameRanger and see which other games are cross-platform multiplayer on their website: http://GameRanger.com

    On a side note... you can also download Borderlands GOTY or get a boxed version from MacGames.co.uk! Cheaper than the app store too...

    Borderlands 2 is not out on the Mac and that is a PC trainer so I can help myself sorry. However you can always try it, worse that will likely happen is a reinstall of the game.
