Or i would if i had a Mac.
Well Steam has finally been released for the Mac computers, so if you don’t have a Mac running an older outdated version of the operating system OS X, you can now install Steam an join the gaming community with ease.
For you who don’t know Steam, let me explain a little bit. Steam is a program that install to your computer and sign up for an account. Via this account you now buy games straight from the program, that after the purchase downloads straight to the computer, ready for play immediately. The brilliant thing is that, when a game has been purchased you can now install steam on any computer you might have, log into your steam account and install that game, and play any time your please. Your purchases are saved within your account information. Brilliant. It’s never been easier to get new games (or old classics) for your computer.
Well Steam has now been released for Steam and together with the release, Steam has also launched the term “SteamPlay” SteamPlay is a term you should look for when browsing the Steam shop for games. It means; When buying a game you are able to play it on a PC as well as a Mac! Otherwize you need to make sure if the game is Mac compatible or PC.
But i doo think it’s brilliant that i can buy Civilization IV and play on my PC, and after that go on holiday together with Gf and install it on her Mac and play there as well. Just brilliant. Of cause Gf got her own account as well, for the only thing about Steam you should know is, that you can’t log into your account two places at once. So i can’t buy a game and we both be playing it at the same time on a computer each. Bought her the “Indie Game Pack” so she has something to play with other that Sims 3 on her Mac.
