  1. Golf ain’t such a bad game once you break the stigma towards it and actually give it a go. I always thought that golf was for old folks with too much money and time on their hands… but its actually pretty good fun whacking the ball really far… and the sound of a clean impact is just sublime! There’s alot of challenge in just getting the swing right. At first, its really aggrivating to keep missing the tiny ball, but once you go get a clean hit, it makes it all so worthwhile!
    As for the videogame above, I’ll definitely be getting it, and I think Aspyr deserve credit for trying to bring in a wide range of games for Apple computers, rather than just bloat at at the standard genres (FPS, Racing, RPG, etc). IMHO, I really dont think that Macs are true gaming machines… for those, you should just stick to PS2 or Xbox, et al. However, it just helps to weep away another myth that Macs do not have games, period.

    MW: “Into”. Get into the game. (Is that an EA Sports slogan?”
