Yes, I am talking about Human Revolution. Steam only has the PC version, for some reason the Mac one is only available on App Store, Amazon, Feral. =/The original Deus Ex? It came out in '99, and you can currently pick up the Windows version on Steam for $2.75. It's a great game, but considering how long it's been out, $40 is near criminal.
If you're talking about Human Revolution, specifically the new Directors Cut edition that just came out, well...it's $20 brand new on Steam, and is currently going for $9.99. If you can only get the Mac version through the MAS, well, it's worth it I guess, but still, it can be had for much less.
Thanks for you help. Yes, $40 is a lot when PC guys can get the better version for $10, that 's sad.. I got the new 27"iMac equipped with a GeForce 780M and there isn't much choices to enjoy it..I just tried looking, and I can't find anything about the Director's Cut being available for Macs. All I've come across is the Ultimate Edition, and it's only available on the MAS for download. I tried looking for a boxed copy, and managed to come across one, but...it isn't any cheaper.
You might not have any other choice but to get it for $40. Though you can get it for cheaper on the PC, I'd argue that it's still a good game, and worth the cash even now.
Yeah. Bootcamping is just like having a Windows PC with those exact same specs. And, generally speaking, games on Windows tend to run a little better than they do in OSX.You as a gamer would consider bootcamp?
Yup. When you first install Steam, it'll ask you where you want it to install all your games. You can use an external drive if you want to.Is it possible to save all steam apps on an external usb3 HDD? I have an SSD so space is a little tight when it comes to games.

And yeah, that can be changed later from the settings.
...though a USB3 drive might be a little slow.
If you've got a recent iMac, then Thunderbolt. But it's flaky under Windows from what i hear.What is faster than USB3?
I don't need much more than 100GB for work related softwares and files, since I moved all my work related video/photos library to an external storage. There is like 50GB of iTunes videos/movies that I constant delete/download.If you've got a recent iMac, then Thunderbolt. But it's flaky under Windows from what i hear.
I just read about USB 3.0 game performance, and you should be alright. It's at least just as fast as old SATA 2 magnetic drives, so the worst you should expect are longer load times.
That said, how many GB is your SSD?
Don't think I'm condescending (even if it sounds like I am), but the basic rule of thumb is:I don't need much more than 100GB for work related softwares and files, since I moved all my work related video/photos library to an external storage. There is like 50GB of iTunes videos/movies that I constant delete/download.
350GB of free space to use for games and other stuff, as long as I don't change my mind and bring my video library back, which I think would be unnecessary. The problem is, Bioshock Infinite alone takes 32GB.
Just wait. I picked it up a month ago on the MAS for $9.99! So, it does go on sale. Great game so far, and really does feel a lot like the original.Is Deus Ex worth the 40 dollars? I can't find a good price and App Store is so expensive.
the directors cut is out soon for mac, been discussed on insidemacgames, and will be steamplay, so grab it from the steam sale when its at its cheapest and once its out youll be able to install the mac version.Yes, I am talking about Human Revolution.

Director's Cut trailer shows "available on Mac App Store", but when I go to the App Store I can only Find the Ultimate Edition.
