Talking Re: Steam for Mac - Available May 12th!!!

So it looks like Steve Jobs' didn't demand his cut on the Steam games and only allow Valve to sell ones he says.

Can't wait to try it out. Could erase windows partition and go only OSX.
Why would you do that. That's like saying I don't want to have sex with a super model. I want the old fat cottage cheese arss chick.

OMG Steam for Mac! OMG now I can play games and be hip at the same time. OMG

Steam for Mac is pretty cool for older or smaller games on the go I really like it so far

btw, Roliath should be a Steam for Mac user as well
I am on an older model (aluminum) 13" MacBook with a geforce 940m. Runs TF2 on high on 1024x768 which works for me.

I rarely game as it is so I only play TF2 really and will try portal cause it's free.

I'll let you know how it goes. I'm still at work and won't get home until late.

That's correct. I'm hoping TF2 is available shortly.

Downloaded it last night along with Portal. Very smooth. Both the game and client overall. Impressed this far.

Yesterday there were a few games listed as Mac games that were removed afterwards, like TF2, Killing Floor and Star Wars TFU.
On my Mac those games don't just up at all anymore, not even when "All Games" is selected.
But they're still there on my PC. So I guess Valve is preparing something on the Mac side.

Bearclaw, please report back on how TF2 performs under OpenGL since you can directly compare it between OS X and Windows
I noticed that. I went to my games list and TF2 is gone from it on OSX, however, it is still there and working on Windows.

I'll report back when I get it installed.

My mate was saying, the only thing he can play is Portal in regards to the source engine and some of the other smaller games on his Macbook.
