    I think I remember something somewhere saying Steam will be releasing a new game for Mac every Wednesday. If true, anyone know what's coming out in two days?

    I was kind of wondering if they released Portal first b/c it's a single player game and they figured people wouldn't care/notice the bugs as much as TF2. Gives them time to see how Portal runs and tweak TF2 some before putting it out. I'd expect to see TF2 before L4D2 since L4D2 is a little more resource intensive.

    It's time for Apple to step up its game and get to work on modernizing its graphics drivers. You to Open GL consortium! Quit lagging behind DX :cool:

    OpenGL 3.3 and 4.0 specifications are out and cover current generations of hardware very well. AMD and NV are shipping drivers based on these specs on Windows already.

    I'd expect TF2 and both L4D games to be released on the same day. They said they want to highlight the new tech weekly, first off was Steamplay and I'd imagine the next will be cross-OS multiplayer games. And for another week we'd see the HL series brought over showing off... um... how awesome Half Life is?

    TF2 is what I'm waiting for.

    I've been beta testing Team Fortress 2 on Steam for Mac and it fantastic IMO. Personally, I am looking forward to testing Counterstrike: Source and Day of Defeat: Source.

    Please say it's TF2 - then i'm a step closer to removing the hated Windows 7 from My Mac

    Portal - DONE
    TF2 - ?!
    MW2 - someday

    That I doubt unless Aspyr do a port like they did for COD4.

    (Speaking of which, COD4 would be nice...)

    Do they typically say what's coming out ahead of time?

    And if they do issue a release date, it is rarely met.

    I have a heavy feeling that we won't be seeing a new game until friday, at about 11:30pm.

    I'm hoping the source games (HL2, CS:S etc) come out this Wed. I haven't bought TF2 yet (although it's tempting)... :D

    Haha, I was just thinking the exact same thing reading this thread. Got CS, HL and L4D. Never bothered with TF2

    On a side note I finished Portal yesterday and have to say the end credits are amongst the best ever! Very clever Valve.

    Half Life 1 or 2 would be smashing i am looking to get my teeth into a good story focused game again.

    My first play though of HL 2 was at terrible settings and not terrifically enjoyable.

    I'm hoping for TF2 too.. Maybe (though its not Valve) Killing Floor will reappear on the games list again too, it seems to be in a similar beta state as TF2.

    Wantwantwant.. Just a L4D-fest would make me happy though. Valve are lucky to have a lineup that consists entirely of excellent games. Really doesn't matter what they release it'll be the best osX game since.. Err.. Portal? :eek:

    It's well worth it, and with SteamPlay as well, there's no reason not to - I got the whole orange box for £17, when the disc costs like £30!

    Any more rumours guys? I'm quite excited! :p Anyone know if CS:S will be out definitely at some point?

    Thanks

    Certainly yes, I already downloaded CSS, however i cannot play it yet as it isn't officially released yet.

    I think alot of us ex-PC types have HL2 laying around, and are hoping to get to play it again. I would expect to see HL2 before TF2 due to the multiplayer dimension (or lack there of) in HL2.

    I'd like to see Plants vs Zombies released for Mac if I'm honest.
