Steam, now with added pretentiousness
March 8, 2010 11:14 AM   Subscribe

Steam for Mac arrives this April Well, it's real, and it's more amazing than we could have possibly hoped for. (Although, that's kind of par for the course with Valve.)

Steam for Mac will be released in April, along with at least a good portion of Valve's library and a few third-party games. Most importantly, it includes a new feature called Steam Play, which allows you to download a copy of a purchased game on the other OS, free of charge. This, combined with the expansion of the Steam Cloud to include save game storage, allowing you to play any Steam Play and Steam Cloud enabled game on PC or Mac and seamlessly load your save games from anywhere, is huge. Game, set, and match to Valve, I think.

Dammit, one of my excuses for getting a Mac was that I couldn't play the good games on it, so I'd be more productive. How am I supposed to justify my next MacBook now, huh?

Bah.

Let's see if Steve Jobs can manage to ruin this somehow.

Neat! Now, if Apple would just put a decent goddamn video card into the Macs, OS X users would be in good shape.
