Mac Gamers Called to Gaming Duty

It’s a long weekend, and that means only one thing: more time to play video games. What are you going to be playing this weekend? Something from Double Fine perhaps? Are you in the Card Hunter beta (you should be)? Maybe you’re just going to stare in disbelief at the Max Payne 3 store page, wondering when you’ll be able to play it? Or perhaps the mere concept of a “game” just won’t do any more, and you’ll be playing for Steam achievement achievements?

If none of those options do anything for you, maybe you should take a look at a weekend of keyboard-strafing and mouse-clicking virtual people to repeated death in Aspyr’s Black Ops weekend:

Aspyr will be hosting a special Black Ops Multiplayer Weekend running from Friday, May 24 – Monday, May 27. You’ll need to keep an eye out for Aspyr players on Call of Duty: Black Ops servers–they will be giving top Call of Duty: Black Ops players instructions on how to get a coupon for a free Aspyr game all weekend long!

This is a great opportunity to try out the game’s multiplayer mode if you haven’t already. If you don’t have the game yet, why they’ve thought of you too, with a sale all weekend. And if you’re worried that you are simply too lame to compete, you can get some tips direct from the publishers, as well as the video series by MacGameCast, one of which I’ve carefully embedded below.

Honestly, it’s great to see events such as these organised within the Mac gaming community. As always, if you’re looking for people to play with, try our forums.

(Oh, and you can also rent your own servers now too, if that’s your thing).
