Spec Ops The Line for Mac

Spec Ops The Line for Mac is a must have game if you like action! The game was years back also released for Mac, but since Catalina (or earlier) the game stopped working native for Mac. So yeah, here it is! Playable for Catalina 10.15.x and even Big Sur 11+ OS. The game is tested and works very well. Played for about an hour on quite high settings without issues. A good (medium/High end) Mac is recommended to have the best experience.

You play as the titular Bard, a roguish, manipulative and lewd songster whose priorities in life are the acquisition of material wealth and carnal pleasures. The Bard’s pretty sarcastic by nature, but you get to decide just how scathing he is by selecting ‘Nice’ or ‘Sarky’ responses. Watch out you don’t get too cocky though; folk you’ve upset may come back to haunt you

Metal Gear Solid 2 – Substance GOG.com source added to Porting Kit + new video tutorial!

As promised here also Metal Gear 2 Substance + a new updated video tutorial! Metal Gear 2 Substance has also reached the GOG.com database. And yes yes, I will also still look into the MSX version and to the other Konami collection of Contra and Castlevania. The game has been tested on Mac OS Mojave and Big Sur and on Mojave it has a slight sound distortion in codec conversations, but it didn’t had it Big Sur (so also not in Catalina).

Solid Snake returns in Metal Gear Solid 2® Substance, the ultimate edition of Metal Gear Solid ® 2: Sons of Liberty, with all-new game modes, hidden characters, and storylines. Top-secret weapons technology is being mysteriously transported under cover of an oil tanker to an unknown location. Armed with an arsenal of new weapons, supplies and stealth maneuvers, it’s up to Snake to infiltrate the transport and keep this deadly weapon of mass destruction from falling into the wrong hands!

Oh, and again the game will of course also work and install in Porting Kit 3.0. Enjoy the game and enjoy the video and I have to say….get this game instanly on GOG.com and start playing! :)

Game description:
The ninth installment of the Ultima series takes a leap into a vivid, detailed 3D environment that adds a whole new level of interaction to the exploration of the realm. Britannia was always one of the most life-like, well-developed, king-sized virtual lands, but this new perspective makes the experience of “living” in it much more immersive. The combination of a story of epic proportions, solid mechanics–true to the classic cRPG spirit, and that achingly familiar Ultima setting, Ultima IX: Ascension a memorable title that all role-players should experience for themselves.
