This week is a great week for Mac (OSX) gamers with the announcements of two games from Feral Interactive. On Monday, Feral Interactive announced that the critically acclaimed Deus Ex: Human Revolution will be hitting the Mac this winter 2011/2012.
Topping off this week Feral Interactive also announced this morning that they’ll be bringing over the multi-award winning Batman: Arkham Asylum on October 13th

Mac gamers normally have to wait many moons before a console or PC game finally graces the Mac. So you can imagine how surprised I was to hear that Deus Ex: Human Revolution will be released on the heels of consoles (PS3/Xbox 360) and PC–only themselves released last month!
Deus Ex: Human Revolution takes place in a cyberpunk setting set 25 years before the original Deus Ex. You now get to play the ex-SWAT commander, Adam Jensen who’s forced to undergo cybernetic augmentation…Yes you heard that right “cybernetic augmentation” how cool is that? With Deus Ex:Human Revolution already receiving critically acclaimed nods for story depth and an open-ended experience you’ll want to cash in all your sick days when it hits the Mac this winter 2011/2012.
With Batman: Arkham City (sequel to Batman: Arkham Asylum) release scheduled for a little over a month away, the announcement of Batman: Arkham Asylum coming over to the Mac couldn’t have come at a better time. Now Mac gamers can experience this original Batman story.
Batman: Arkham Asylum story starts of with Batman delivering the Joker to Arkham Asylum. Mere moments after the introduction chaos breaks loose as the Joker seizes the Asylum. Batman, trapped in Arkham, must now stop the Joker along with other infamous Batman villains such as Ivy, Harley Quinn, Scarecrow…Shivvers down my spine. Anyways, if you were not fortunate enough to play Batman: Arkham Asylum when it was released on consoles and PC then get ready to put on your cape and cowl this October and prepare to play the best Super Hero game of all time (maybe second best if Arkham City manages to best it–fingers crossed). It’s even better than Superman 64…alright that was a low blow.
