TESTAt the end of 2008, I bought myself an iMac and as good as said goodbye to PC gaming. During late 2009, to avoid watching the X-Factor or Britain's Got Talent or some such tosh, I decided to dual boot my iMac so I could install Steam again. To celebrate I purchased Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic (KOTOR) and enjoyed the first several hours of it. However, dual booting sucks, since you can't easily share things like your iTunes music library or bookmarks, so I gave up an deleted the Windows partition.
Should have listened...
Fast forward to May 2010 and Steam is released for OS X. knowing there was a Mac version of KOTOR that had been released on disk some years previously, I expected that it would be released very soon.
Fast forwarding again to May 2012 and I gave up. KOTOR was available on the Mac App Store and had been for over a year, and was on sale "this weekend only" so I purchased it expecting to start it at some point in the next few weeks. A mere 9 days after I clicked buy, Aspyr (the company who ported KOTOR to Mac) post on their blog that they have finally released KOTOR on Steam for Mac, meaning I am now the proud owner of KOTOR. Twice.
Now I only spent £9.99 and £5.50 respectively, but if I had waited just those last few days it would have been like getting the game for free!
But the real lesson here is I should have listened to my wife who said I didn't need to buy any more games at the moment. I might try that next time.Go Top
