View Full Version : Gears of War: Mac

So far all I have heard is that this and UT3 are "coming soon" which doesn't answer many questions. I've been waiting patiently for 6-8 months now, but are you guys still working on it, or is it still happening? Is it a Microsoft thing? Any ideas of the rough time scale for release?

I'm very sorry, but I wouldn't bet on it for Gears. I expect UT3 to be coming still.

That's a real shame. I have it for Xbox 360, but I want the Computer benefits of Gears like mods, increased multiplayer, mouse and keyboard. Never mind.

Boot Camp Windows. If you don't have an Intel Mac, then you couldn't possibly have expected to run Gears even if it did see a release.

Boot Camp Windows. If you don't have an Intel Mac, then you couldn't possibly have expected to run Gears even if it did see a release.I have a decent setup on my mac; 4GB RAM, 512MB ATI Radeon HD2600. On my Windows partition of my mac I can only configure 3GB RAM maximum and 256MB for graphics. the RAM is fine, however I also need to be running my mac partition in the background (I use virtual machines, and will not be swayed for the hassle of boot camp) 256MB would probably work fine, however one thing I cannot stand is when your graphics card cannot handle the game's engine and so the frame rate suffers a lot.
The thing that annoys me is UT3 and Gears are still on Macsoft's and Unreal Tournament's sites for release, but nothing here about Gears of War. Macsoft should change the news if it hasn't been confirmed.
