    Hi, long time lurker first time poster ;)

    I got a macbook not long ago (unibody) and have since been throwing a few older games on for mucking about on when I am out and about, usually stuff that does not need a disc in like Diablo 2, Warcraft 3, Eschalon Book 1 etc...

    I have since found out that some of my favourite PC games of old were ported to the mac, but I have no idea where to get them from, some of them pop up used on ebay or Amazon but I would prefer to be able to buy them via dowload.

    I am in the UK and Direct 2 Drive here has a limited selection, the Apple store does not have much other than recent titles. I am after:

    Ghost Recon, and xpac if possible
    Baldurs Gate 2 and xpac
    Neverwinter Nights and xpacs (I see HoTU made it across!)
    XIII

    Any clues?

    Thanks in advance :)

    I have all of these.

    Most bought at release, the rest from a 2nd hand PC games / DVD shop, or the thrift shop. You just gotta keep yours eyes open and pop in to the shops every time you pass. eBay was the other good option.

    The ones you have already are dual-platform, which you'll never have any trouble finding.

    Also don't overlook using BootCamp (or Parallels) and buying the Windows versions of these games at £2 each.

    Ultimately, we all have a wish-list, Myth II: Green Berets is on mine somewhere.
