    Anyone have any suggestions? I want to be able to play against some friends in NY (I'm in TX). Urban Terror doesn't work, neither does Halo 2. Anything with good graphics :) I'm trying to see if Alien Arena will work... Thanks!

    COD4 is a great game you can play against others on PC.

    There is a Mac version of it that came out a few months back. Great graphics and great game. Since I am really only into military sims that is the only one I can recommend.

    Why not install bootcamp and then you can play whatever game you want on PC with your friends.

    I currently only play Novalogic's Joint Operations on my Windows partition via bootcamp and it is great. You can get an OEM version of Windows very cheap on the internet. I got Vista Home Premium for around $100 and it works fantastic.

    I just wish I did not have to bother with Windows at all but Mac is just not putting out the games I like to play.

    Thanks. I actually have Crossover Games installed, but when I play Halo on it, the sensitivity is whacked and i have to swipe my trackpad about 16 times to move the gun across the screen.

    I have a Windows XP disk... But the thing is it's only SP1, so I can't get an internet connection with it, cause I can't install the drivers. Is there a way I can get SP2 (or 3, if it's required) for free?

    Free Games:
    Quake Live ***
    Enemy Territory (Wolfenstein) **
    Postal, *
    Cube, (even works on an iPhone :)) *
    AssaultCube **
    America's Army 2.5 (I think 3.x is Windoze only) **
    Nexuiz **
    Savage 2 - A Tortured Soul ***


    There's more too. Those are just the free ones i can think of that i've had (or have) installed on my OS X MP. Then there's the pay games like: Quake 3, Quake 4, Unreal Tournament, Halo (which works for me), and etc. etc.
