Binary Domain for Mac

And another cool title has been ported: Binary Domain! The game is both added to Porting Kit and Crossover. I played/tested the games for about an hour without issues on as well my intel Iris iMac as on my Macbook air. The only thing you have to do as “extra” is to cancel the .net 3.5 install when asked on launch of the game. The speak commands are fun as well! Calling “regroup[” or “fire” or other commands to your companions, is quite fun!

Game Description:
The Machine age has begun in this immersive and atmospheric squad-based shooter in which you need to regain control of a futuristic Tokyo from an emerging robotic threat. In Binary Domain you are set in 2080, the story starts when Dan Marshall and his squad are sent to bring the robotic community under control as they begin to infiltrate society and slowly take over undetected, leaving humans redundant in their wake. Thrilling encounters with highly intelligent robotic enemies require you to think tactically, make challenging, real-time moral decisions and build up trust with your team mates in order to guide your squad to safety and success.

Pacific Assault GOG.com version added to Porting Kit/Crossover!

Great news! Medal of Honor – Pacific Assault arrived DRM free on GOG.com! Because of this I added the GOG.com version to Porting Kit and Crossover! The GOG.com version is advised over the Origin version because Origin is a game client where you first need to login to in order to play. So GOG.com version is always recommended above game client version as Uplay/Origin and Steam.

Medal of Honor – Pacific Assault puts you in the boots of a WWII soldier in the Pacific Theater of Operations. As Marine Private Tommy Conlin, you must survive the devastating attack on Pearl Harbor and then join the Allied crusade to defeat Imperial Japan’s bloody conquest of the Pacific. From the attack at Pearl Harbor to the pivotal battle against Japanese Forces at Tarawa Island, Medal of Honor Pacific Assault gives PC gamers a sense of the courage it took to endure and overcome the Japanese threat in WWII and fight for VICTORY in the Pacific.
