Not that I have an iDevice or a Mac, but it would be interesting if they have iCloud support for save games ACROSS devices. I know some people with a Mac and an iPad and syncing saves between the two would be a nice feature.

There really isn't much reason to save to the cloud without being able to play across platforms.

There is a reason, which is backup. If you delete an app, your saved games will also be gone. With iCloud support, they'll still be there. But I agree, across device save games is the most important use of iCloud saving.

That may be true of iOS devices, but deleting a game from a Mac does not take the saves with it. If they're going to the trouble of adding cloud support to the Mac version, I have to believe that cross-platform saving is the reason.

Well, some Steam games also save to the cloud (e.g. Skyrim). This saved me when my hard drive crashed last week, so cloud saving is appreciated nonetheless.

This was fairly obvious considering the already announced iPad version.

The life of the Mac gamer means NEVER assuming anything, regardless of how obvious! :)

Thaurin March 30th, 2012 13:23

When you assume, you make an ass out of u and me!

DArtagnan March 30th, 2012 13:24

You don't need to assume for that to be the case for you and him ;)

Thaurin March 30th, 2012 13:26

Reported! …or did I?

DArtagnan March 30th, 2012 13:27

Reflected!

Thaurin March 30th, 2012 13:34


DArtagnan March 30th, 2012 13:41

My Reflect is sorcery!

Thaurin March 30th, 2012 13:48

No, it's not.


DArtagnan March 30th, 2012 15:16

That's not mine!

(Though, I doubt any "Reflect" could be sorcery - but we don't talk about that here!)
