Rejoice, Mac gamers: Chronicles of Riddick is coming to you

cor_02Don’t look now, I think the Apple platform might be approaching a half dozen games! Now in addition to Myst and World of Warcraft, Mac users can also play the not-really-acclaimed shooter Chronicles of Riddick: Dark Athena. I frankly have no idea why anyone is porting this game. I mean, it’s not especially good, or original. Maybe Vin Diesel is a Mac user?

All teasing aside, the release will include a graphical update, an additional 6 multiplayer modes, and will have the same voice acting and very dark environment of the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 versions. No word on pricing or release date, of course, but as with all games I’m sure it’ll be “really soon now.”

But seriously, why this title? Why not one of the Splinter Cell games or something?
