Given the reception Witcher 3 got at E3, I decided I wanted to go back and play Witcher 2. Was looking for a Xbox360 deal and came across the Mac OS version for on $9.99.

 

Looks great on my new 27" iMac.

FYI, I bought this when it was $6.79 on steam the other day. I have 2010 iMac with 4gbs of RAM and this brought my computer to its knees. I picked it up for Xbox instead. Really good game though! I would just make sure you fit in the specifications (I didn't).

It's also $9.99 on GOG. It is DRM-free and works on both PC and Mac.

I have a 2011 iMac, and while I can get nearly every game I've ever bought to look great either in the Mac OS or through Windows 7 in bootcamp, this game just looks and runs like crap.  Just giving a fair warning to Mac gamers.

I've been tempted to buy this game on numerous occasions but I have no need/don't want an XBOX 360 so I'd be relegated to being able to play it on my computer only, which brings to me to my question:

 

I have a 15" MacBook Pro Retina with a 2.6GHz i7 and 16GB RAM - I'm assuming this would probably run well on this?  Also, anyone know how it would work when using an HDMI cable to play it on my TV?

 

[Edit]

If you couldn't tell, I don't know a damn thing about Mac/PC gaming and their requirements anymore.  I haven't played a computer game since Quake III came out...

It depends. I have a ATI Radeon HD 4670 256 MB for my graphics card. It recommended at least a 1gb card. Here's the specs from Steam. You can check them against yours by going to finder > about this mac > more info.

I've got a GeForce GT 650M with 1GB RAM in mine.  I might have to jump on this to gear up for The Witcher 3 on PS4.

Yeah, it sounds like it would run really nicely on your system then. Don't forget that they also released a (semi-official) big patch. I am not sure if it is going to (or has) make it to Mac, but I would definitely check that out if you get it up and running.
