Defense Technica released for the Mac!

Another Mac game is released yesterday. This time a tower defense strategy game called: Defense Technica which is simlar like example Defense Grid. This game is also released for the Mac by the publisher, so no port is necessary for this one. You can buy the game on Gamersgate using the links mentioned here. Checkout the trailer below for the gameplay.

Defense Technica is the next evolution in hardcore tower defense strategy games. Protect the core from an onslaught of unrelenting biomechanical terrors with a powerful range of tower defense units – each with their own upgradable features and methods of attacks. Engage the opposition in a variety of maps and prepare to rapidly shift tactics as weather, enemy paths, and even the terrain itself physically changes upending the flow of the battlefield. Presented through sharp 3D visuals and backed by a soaring soundtrack, Defense Technica is the ultimate in strategic tower defense!

The New iMacs and Retina display Macbooks! What to choose?

The new line of Macbooks with Retina Display and iMacs are available now! But what is new and what is important to know when buying one considering gaming and wrappers. The most important and perhaps main thing which effects gaming is the graphics card and bridge which is used. Well lets check the Macbooks first shall we? The main change is the graphicscard. I am quite fan of AMD or Nvidia, but Apple choose for as start models the past few years for the Intel Graphics card. In my opinion worst choice for gaming. The past showed that quite a number of games simply don’t work properly with Intel graphics cards: like Medieval 2 Total War. The main problem are the video drivers or the game doesn’t supporting the card. I think especially with some older games this might conflict with eachother. Anyway, the new Retina display Macbooks have an Intel Iris Graphics card. Which is what in a GFX card review of Gizmodo calls “Awesome!”. They say, i quote: Intel’s Iris graphics are going to provide a 2x improvement to 3D performance over Intel’s current HD 3000, and HD 4000 that are wrapped into Ivy Bridge cores. Which is of course course good news! However, still the question remains: How does older games work with the card? How good are the graphical drivers? That it seems to work great in tests with BioShock Infinite, doesn’t say anything of other and especially some older games… The real physical tests will give the real answers. If someone already has the new Macbook with Intel Iris Graphics cards, he maybe wants to share his experiences with that card in this topic?

Second, the new iMac! I was quite sad to see they are even equiping the new basic iMac with only that (onboard) Intel Iris graphical card instead of an Nvidia or AMD Radeon card. This means, if you want to have an iMac with a Nvidia graphics card you have to pay $200 more, which will give you an 1 GB GeForce GT 750M, what in my opinion is a straight yes and maybe must, in comparation with that Intel Iris Graphicscard which only has 128mb memory on it and the rest it will eat from the physical memory…thats why I am happy that the basic model comes with standard 8GB of internal Memory.

Conclusion: Intel Iris graphics card, should be in improvement, but time will tell the real thing about that one. When having a Retina Display Macbook it should be at least an massive performance boost, so thats a very good thing in comparation with a Intel HD 3000 or HD 4000. For iMacs I would defintly skip the basic model and go for $200 more expensive but more safe side, with the 1 GB Nvidia  graphics card.

Feel free to share your experiences in this topic.

Paulthetall.com THE Mac gaming Website!

Paulthetall.com THE Mac gaming Website!

I want to share in this post my vision for the coming years; to become THE Mac gaming website on the internet! How I want to achieve that? Well, I want to create a massive database of Mac games (free and commercial) and Mac game ports. Also I will try to be a supplier of all news and info concerning Mac’s, OSX,  games and Wine/Wineskin.  All this should be the basis of a place where you can find all games and news for your Mac and where to discuss things about gaming on your Mac. This also means there will be a massive increase of game posts of existing free & commercial Mac games as well, to enlarge the game database on the site, so people can find all their favorite games. No more looking around to find games for your Mac, Paulthetall.com should be the main place to go and be :D

The website will be added all kind of new features like a login possibility on the site, rating, game search and much more.  This will be implanted through time with some mean features already very soon. Now the site is launched and after tidying it up some more and when I fixed the last remaining stuff, there will be some volunteers recruting as well. Those people will be granted rights to create news posts and such, so we can act really like a mac game community.

To also achive that, spread the word about paulthetall.com on forums to friends who have a Mac and so on! Hope you all share the vision and that you want to part of it! Thanks guys!
