Oculus Rift: Another example of the Mac's gaming deficit

Surprised Oculus punted on Mac support? You shouldn't be. The Mac has a huge gaming deficit. And it's getting worse.

Last week Oculus VR chief architect Atman Binstock said that the company put the brakes on Mac and Linux development in favor of focusing on Windows. Oculus is the maker of the Rift, a forthcoming VR headset expected to ship in the first calendar quarter of 2016.

Oculus is focusing on Windows initially for the same reason that legendary thief Willie Sutton supposedly targeted banks: Because that's where the money is. But this underscores an important point.

Run old-school console games on the Mac with OpenEmu

I'm 45, and I've been gaming on consoles since the Magnavox Odyssey. Many of the games I've played over the years represent a huge investment of time and a huge return of pleasure in playing, so I keep them. I keep them on shelves in my office, I keep them in bins in my basement. I don't get rid of them for the same reason I don't toss my old vinyl albums or CDs — in many cases, there's a real emotional attachment.

But this isn't about my hoarding tendencies. It's a good thing I've kept those old games around, because now I can play them again on my Mac. A powerful application provides the framework to do it easily, and it's absolutely free. It's called OpenEmu, and here's how to use it.
