Damn, not Half Life 2? That's friggin' awesome, though. Now I don't think I'll bother getting Splinter Cell for the 'Cube.

Mouse/Keyboard + Splinter Cell =

Maybe not for a FPS, but for a 3rd person like Splinter Cell a controller should be just fine.

Precise aiming is very important for Splinter Cell

Speaking about innaccurate controllers.. I just read about this guy who beat Soul Calibur on extremely hard mode with the Dreamcast fishing controller!!

Wave horizontally, kick. Wave vertically, punch. No blocking. Wow...

As cool as it is that "Splinter Cell" is making it's way onto Mac, yet again us Mac users get OLD GAMES!!!!! Like it's supposed to be earth-shattering news that we're getting a game ppl have had for MONTHS on other systems...why not announce Half-Life 2 or Doom 3 or something others don't already have?

We are getting DOOM 3. It would be nice to get Half-Life 2, and with the G5s, that will probably weigh in on helping us get it for sure. Besides, when has any game made a debut launch on the Mac? We're a small market. We should be grateful for what we do get. Petitions can't hurt, though, right?
