“Will there be a Mac version?” or “When will this be out on Mac?” are common questions when a new game is released, often followed by an evasive or holding reply from the publisher leaving the gamer none the wiser. The sad fact for people looking for wargames on the Mac is that the market segment is pretty small – let’s be honest, the PC is the norm for a games machine – and so the economics of porting a game to the Mac are usually a bit marginal.

Lately, we’ve been discussing just where PC wargaming might be going, but as much as I’m looking forward to carefully chronicling that inevitably interesting evolution, it’s good to know that some things never change. To that end, and much like it was back in 1973, yesterday, I dutifully headed out to the mailbox only to break out in the biggest of grins after seeing familiar pale yellow envelope.

A bit late with this one as the news really comes from last week, but we’re on a bit of catch up here at Wargamer.com this morning. So no Monday announcement of a Deal of the Week from Matrix Games this week, however, last week they released Decisive Campaigns: Case Blue on Steam with a 50% discount off that runs for a week – so I guess that makes it sort of a Deal of the Week, just not a Monday to Sunday week …

Well here in the UK we are in the aftermath of a general election with all the celebration, despair, and the like that goes with finding the results. However, perhaps appropriately, this coincides with the 70th anniversary of VE Day, the end of World War 2 in Europe – although Russia doesn’t mark this until tomorrow, 9th May. So as we in the UK consider the outcome of our democratic process, perhaps we should also take time to consider the sacrifice and struggle of those who fought in the Second World War.

One of the greatest enduring and accepted myths of the Second World War, and one originally promulgated by the Nazi German propaganda ministry, is that the Polish Air Force was surprised, caught on the ground, and completely destroyed in the opening hours of Germany's undeclared blitzkrieg war with Poland.
