Do you know if this is like steam. I'm about to switch to a new computer and want to make sure I can transfer the games if I install them on my current one.

Yes, of course, you can easily transfer the games to your new Mac.

I already preordered.

And I have to agree with the above poster - Feral is very good at what they do, and excellent at support and responding to requests!

Awesome deal, I agree 100%. Just a pity that none of the games in the bundle is of any interest to me...
But still, I hope that more of these bundles come along !

I would assume that is your connection. I never have trouble downloading through the MGS app, and I'm not even on the same continent as the MGS servers.

I can't believe it's my connection, because everything else works fine - besides, it's a 35Mbps cable line.

The MGS attempt failed at least three consecutive times in the last minute (request timed out)...they must have a problem over there.

We just released version 2.3.1 of the MGS App that fixed time outs. Time outs happen from time to time from almost any source. We rewrote the entire download engine so that games are now downloaded in chunks, then put together at the end. This ensures that no matter what (say, if you lose your internet connection, your Mac crashes, the app crashes, whatever), the download will resume where it got and stored the last chunk.

My apologies. Please send me a PM to see what we can do to help you out.

Just installed it, downloads seem more stable for now - I will PM you in case the issue is not resolved.

Yes.




The boss battles were definitely the worst part of the game. Luckily they are much better in Arkham City.
I found boss battles to be totally unique for every single one of them and gives a satisfying feeling after pass them. Made me remember each boss after defeating it, for the rest of the game. Arkham City is indeed a better game overall.

Best part of both games is the extremely good performance without sacrifice the visuals.

Thank you, Tuncer, for this info. I just bought the pack. Hopefully, Feral continues to allow some more bundles for their older games. Batman & Dirt 2 were worth my $20, even though I have both on Steam for Windows.

Aside from the boss battles and better combat, I actually liked AA a bit better. The atmosphere was stronger, and the narrative was better focused––I felt with AC the developers decided that they needed to cram in every villain that they could, which made everything a bit bloated. The open world nature of the game
hurt it in that respect as well. But they are both excellent games.

What was wrong with the boss battles?
They weren't terrible, just overly tedious and boring. You had to do the same thing over and over. There are one or two really good ones, though.
