Sweet! Thank you for sharing the good news.Good news , Rockstar is releasing Max Payne 3 for mac this week
More info :
I don't think I've ever hated a game quite as much as I hated Max Payne 3.
Everything about it, from the ceaseless whining of the self-pitying main character to the dead-eye, bullet-sponge enemies.
Can't design a decent level or program smart AI? Then simply make every enemy know exactly where you are at all times, so they can plug you the instant you emerge from cover. And give them body armour so they can take three or four headshots before going down.
It's relentlessly repetitive. Shoot 50 guys, get killed by somebody who spawns on a roof behind you, get chucked back to a checkpoint 5 minutes earlier because there's no quicksave, listen to Max grumbling about what a loser he is...
I got to the final confrontation, which is ridiculously hard, died about 20 times, deleted the install. It's almost 30GB, so I won't be tempted to download it again.
4/10. Dismal sequel from a developer who simply doesn't have a clue about what made the original games so good.
I did, then I dug deeper and discovered this:Did you not read what I just wrote right above you?
Considering the version I bought for Windows wouldn't even work in Bootcamp, I'm hoping that bringing it over to Mac will allow me to finally put that purchase to good use!Will the steam PC version be upgraded to work on mac (like valves games when you can play the game on Windows and OSX) or will we have to buy it again?
From: http://support.rockstargames.com/entries/24289781-Max-Payne-3-Mac-System-RequirementsOn the Steam version of Max Payne 3 for Mac, initial activation requires internet connection and a valid Rockstar Social Club account (13+ to register); Online play requires log-in to Rockstar Social Club (13+)
The Mac App Store version of Max Payne 3 does not require an Internet connection to play using an offline profile.
Although rare, it is POSSIBLE to have MacAppStore and Steam crossplay multi-player. I know that it has been accomplished with one game in the past, and that game happens to be (Aspyr's) Call of Duty Black Ops for Mac.I have no idea yet how the Multiplayer works. App store to app store only? Crossplay with Mac steam? Crossplay with all PC players? No Idea.
Of you're you're going to have to rebuy it. I've heard that Rockstar quite liked the XBox One's DRM policy and may implement their own form of it, requiring you to buy a copy for every computer you own. They've also been inspired by the Planetary Annihilation beta on Steam, and will now charge $90 for it. Hey, they don't call it "Max Pay 3" for nothing.Awesome news!
Hopefully, Rockstar will release it on Steam too, so we won't have to buy it again.
Thank you very much. Well that is good news about the performance. I have a mid-2011 iMac with the 6970m GPU so it sounds like I should be golden then.It is a Cider port. I checked the app.
The game runs flawlessly on 1920x1080 rez and High settings across the board. My comp specs are in my signature.
A friend of mine however reported that the game ran horribly on his Mac Pro with an Nvidia card. He was curious if the game was badly optimized for Nvidia cards. I can't say as I don't have one, but it runs great on my iMac.
