The Mac Side of Massive

Whoever has chosen to embrace the Mac as his desktop platform of choice but uses to rely on other platforms for his gaming needs, may feel the lack of some native massive online gaming titles sooner or later. This is my decayed observation post.

City of Heroes ... Mac Special Edition?

 I'm confused ...

 

 Anyway, here's the press-release:

NCsoft and TransGaming Announce City of Heroes for the Mac

 

Sure, these fellows will need some help ... the beta will start in a matter of a few weeks, sign up here:

http://www.cityofheroes.com/macbeta/

 The requirements are:


- a Mac with an Intel processor

- OS: Mac OS X 10.4.11 Tiger / Mac OS X 10.5.5 Leopard or higher
- CPU: Intel Core Duo Processor
- RAM: 1024 MB
- Video: ATI X1600, NVidia 7300 GT, or X3100 Intel integrated graphics chip (Intel GMA950 not supported)
- Hard Drive: 2.9 GB

The Mac client  will use the TransGaming's CIDER technology so it will be a "wrapped" version of the Windows executable ... let's hope the performances won't suffer for this choice.

 As I've written on the Lineage BBS, it seems that NCSoft is having a crush with our platform lately ... we all hope that this time it's love ;)

To be honest, I would have liked it better if they chose the good old GuildWars (solid and very casual-friendly) or the upcoming (and really promising) Aion but, you know, it may be the start of something new.

At least I hope it is.

UPDATE:  there's a crowdy thread in the official BBS: 

Discussion: Good vs. Evil Coming to the Mac!

I wonder why only "Heroes"... whatever happened to the Villians?

A little while back NCsoft decided to combine both city of heroes and villains into one game giving everyone the chance to be a hero or villian.
