Default Weekend Deal: Team Fortress 2 MAC Release and 50% off AND free weekend play

Nice triple deal over on steam.

Save 50% on Team Fortress 2 on Steam

Never played TF2 or the first....so I will try it out and see if it is worth it or not.

Will be trying this on my 21.5 Geforce iMac 21.5. Hope it runs good.

EDIT: This deal INCLUDES the PC version as well.

I plan on logging in on my Mac briefly this weekend just so that I can troll people by wearing them later (while playing on my PC)

The headphone thing is simply genius. I love Valve's humour!

Well I tried it. Not a bad game at all. However when playing it with a Magic Mouse you are in for a WORLD of trouble. It is so sensitive that you are almost ALWAYS trying to tell the game what you want to shoot with.

THat and my iMac froze....HARD...TWICE while trying to play this.

It needs a LOT of work still.

Actually, it may be your Mac needs a lot of work since from what I hear Mac users are finally realizing the GPUs in their beautiful little computers are insufficiently cooled. :(

Wait a low graphical game like TF2 is over heating Macs? Yikes.
