Well, I have to admit, EGM got me really good. I read an article in their magazine about how Apple was going to jump into the video game market with the iGame. Unfortunately it was all a hoax. Even though it is not confirmed hoax yet, I know it is totally an April fools joke. It was both mean and uncalled for EGM, you hear me. Not that I am going to cancel my subscription or anything but I am not going to forget to really be more of a skeptic when I read their April issue.
The iGames was supposed to be this gaming device that was also an iPod and had video capabilities. The games were going to be dowloaded to your computer and then into the device. The possibilities were endless and I could not wait to play some of the older gamers on an Ipod like device.
The iGame is an excellent idea though. One of the things that Apple has always lagged behind is gaming. I am hoping that using Intel Chips will make it easier to port games to work on Macs. I have wanted to frag my Mac friends for quite some time, and not being able to is kind of lame.
I have always liked Macs, but since high school my involvement with them has been minimal. We have had Macs at some of the places I work and I can navigate them but not do much more. My recent acquaintance with Mac geeks, a Sun developer, a Mac developer and a Mac fanboy and graphics designer, has really sparked my curiosity to the point that I might be getting a Mac in the near future. I would like to learn to program for Macs and just get to know them a little better. In the mean time I will keep on hoping that Apple does pick up on the hoax and makes it a reality.
