Valve Software sends word that their cooperative focused Zombie apocalypse shooter Left 4 Dead is now available for the Mac. Mac supported is accompanied by several other general bug-fixes and drops in the middle of Valve's Halloween festivities.

In addition to a big Steam Halloween Sale Valve have also added a bunch of quirky features to Team Fortress 2 that includes new achievements, new Mann Co store items, a new Map with exploding pumpkins and a "Headless Horseman" NPC that generates randomly during matches. More specifics on that one can be found over at teamfortress.com





Buy now from Green Man Gaming for only GBP£12.99 (USD$19.99 on Steam)!

except macs have had two buttons since forever
there is just no gap between them, you click either side - it's functional and sleek ;)

I don't really see how it's functional to have two buttons with no clear line between them. I totally get Jobs' penchant for minimalism but I don't understand why they seem to try to avoid tactile feedback all the time.

Normally I'm a massive fan of Apple's industrial design but tbh I've never seen an Apple mouse that I thought actually looked good. MS used to make some good looking mice, but these days they all look pretty awkward as well.

Or just plug in a normal mouse? My G9 works perfectly on my MBP.

Apple mice are terrible. But I'm going to have even more trouble playing games with what I use instead:

Wow I've never seen one of those before, that's pretty damn cool. Aside from it not being practical for games, how do you find it compares to using a mouse for regular desktop pc usage?

They are much nicer than a mouse for general OS work, especially when you add in gesture support (swipe, rotate, 4 finger swipe down to show desktop etc

At first I was planning on using it along side my mouse... but that quickly grew old and I was surprised at how quickly I became accustomed to the trackpad after having used a mouse all my life. A couple of things s*** me - it's hard to be as precise with your pointer when you use a finger compared to your whole hand, so doing things like trying to prepare slides for a presentation where there's lots of clicking and dragging become a bit annoying. I even miss links I'm trying to click on sometimes. Also, the way you "click" takes a bit of getting used to. They're the only negatives though - aside from that it's f*****g awesome having a the trackpad. One thing I think makes it worth it on its own is simply the two finger drag up/down to scroll up/down a page. Unless you try it yourself you won't understand why it's infinitely better than any other method including a click wheel.

Yeah gotta say the one thing I don't like about macbook trackpads is the whole entire trackpad as a massive button thing, but as long as you can enable tap to click it's fine, I assume you can enable that with this one too?
BillyHardball
Posted 08:00pm 31/10/10
Yep, but it's a bit unreliable - sometimes you tap but it doesn't count as a click :(

I like my magic mouse. It means I don't keep instinctively going back to my MBP trackpad to scroll.
BillyHardball
Posted 03:10pm 01/11/10
The reason I didn't get a magic mouse when it first came out was the glossy surface - I found it far to sticky too easily scroll up/down.

Skin must differ, its smooth as for me :) my fingertips actually get pain if I use my MBP trackpad for any time at all now, but I don't get the pain on the mouse. Yep I've done something to my fingertip nerves, it is whack...
