    Hopefully we'll get to see more of the Zero Hour expansion for C&C Generals. My family loves playing that game.

    Rumor has it that Gamespy is going to have a booth at MacWorld, but it is going to cost people an extra $999 to enter and see what's in there.

    See the 2005 new games for the Mac in 2005! Or, it could be written "See the 2003 new games for Windows, now finally on the Mac, costing more than ever, slower than ever, and later than ever! But just be happy you're getting them, so shut up!"

    Use a PC for gaming then.

    If it makes you SOOO unhappy to be treated like a 2nd class gaming citizen, buy a PC and stop complaining. That's what I did.

    Hopefully Ambrosia will be demoing (and even more hopefully releasing) Redline!
