Hey Steve. You mentioned in the podcast how youre considering a Mac to dual boot XP and OSX. I was thinking that if you do it then maybe you should regularly report in with your PC adventures on a Mac. Its amazing to see how many PC owners have secretly been eyeing the mac but couldn't pull the trigger for one reason or another (games!).  Boot camp really is going to be the thing that gets people to make the jump so since you're opinion is much more respected than the average mac zealot or PC nut then hearing of your experiences may help alot of us who are considering the switch.

Personally, I've been dying to go back to mac but couldn't justify it until now. But I'm going to wait on my mac laptop purchase until i see the official specs of the MacBook (the iBook successor) and see if it can handle games.

I need to get Oblivion.

Can't see what all the fuss is about. If I don't like that kind of games, then why would I have to buy them? But then again, I might not be a true gamer anyway. :P I didn't get Half-life 2 until a few weeks ago...

Damn, that makes me feel like I'm the only person who doesn't have oblivion, isn't interested in oblivion and doesn't personally know a single person who is playing oblivion...

Also, I feel slightly insulted by the "not a real gamer" comment... =P

Uh, I don't have Oblivion.

But it has been ordered and ought to arrive any day now   ;D

Besides, lots of folks don't do PC gaming and can't afford an XBox360, so let's not forget those guys.

That was only a joke. But do at least try it if you aren't interested in buying it. It's one of those classic games that people will talk about for years to come.

Lol...we know. My computer won't really run the game as well as I'd like, so when I get a 360, Im going to get Oblivion then. Not to mention achievments!  :P

I've never been into RPG's before, but wow, this one looks fantasic.

I don't play Oblivion... but that is because I don't think my computer can run it very well.

Edit: And I am not the biggest RPG fan.

Oblivion isn't an MMO, its completely single player.

No worries Steve, that was said as a tongue-in-cheek comment really. =)

 What I really don't understand is how you can take the MMO out of an MMORPG and still keep it interesting. I've been having some problems adapting to these modern RPGs like KOTOR and such. I don't really like to bash games before I play them though, so I guess Oblivion's another game being added to the list for after I graduate and join the pool of newly unemployeds. =P
