    ARRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!
    I went on Ambrosia's site. On the 'upcoming' menu they have RagnaroK listed... but what they don't say is that THEY ARE NOW MAKING PC CONVERSIONS FOR THEIR NEWER GAMES!!!! Who is with me in my trek to go cross-country and personally STRANGLE MATT BURCH?!?!

    Do you have some difficulty understanding that Ambrosia is a company? Companies want to make money. Releasing software for more than one platform means more people can buy the software. More people=more $$$. Games are costing more and more to develop, and it takes more sales to break even and then make a profit. I fail to see why it is so awful for a company to want to make more money through a port. Its not like they said they were dropping Mac support.

    Edit:I read "Sneak Snapz: Joining the Dark Side by Ben Spees" about Ragnarok, and the author mentions that they do not "have any great love for Windows." He also mentions that "[He thinks] this will actually result in a better game experience." because of the increased number of players.

    zxcvbnm is right, there is nothing wrong with going into the pc market. of course, if Ambrosia decides 2 years later to drop mac gaming, then we should mount a crusade to destroy the infidels there.
