Gaming on the Mac

Insanity is repeating the same actions and expecting different results.

To be honest, some games work pretty well on the Mac, but most games were disappointments. The latest one was «Pathfinder – Wrath of the Righteous».

The Mac version is buggy as hell and my first trial ended when graphics issues prevented me from seeing anything in a tent after the prologue. I got a refund from GOG. Later I read that the developed had fixed the issue and I bought the game again. Result: Same issues in the same tent, i.e. not fixed. Then I did an update of the installation, which fixed the issue in an ingenious way: The game did not start anymore. Uninstalled it, restarted the computer, installed it again — same result. I’ve now asked for another refund.

Which is a shame, but if the game would work, it would be pretty cool. You can already see the humor in the game and I finally found a class combination that works for me.

But considering the atrocious programming, I’ll probably stick to summary videos of the game on YouTube. Hmm, and looking online, I think this comment says it best:

And on the bright side, it might leave me more time to do some creative projects.
