One of last year’s most successful and beloved games from a small studio, Bastion is now available for Mac via the Mac App Store and Steam, and the extra layover has done nothing to diminish the colorful action game’s considerable charms.
For me, high school consisted of using my MacBook Pro in class to play one game, and one game only: Pocket Tanks! I don't remember a single day in the second half of my high school career that I didn't play this. So, imagine my delight, when it showed up in the iTunes App Store.
OS X Mountain Lion is finally here, and if you're like us, you're eager to install it and start playing with the more than 200 new features Apple has tucked away in its fur -- so let's have a look at what this process entails.
