Game downloading service GameTap is changing. In about 2 weeks, Tappers will have access to a re-designed GameTap website, and a new plug-in that lets players launch games from the desktop, start menu or from GameTap.com.
Good news, right? Not if you're on a Mac. Once the changes take effect, Apple computers won't be supported. Ouch. The indignity continues for Mac gamers.
A full list of changes is below the cut.
- Desktop and Start Menu shortcuts for every game.
- All arcade and console games play right in the browser.
- Firefox support for in-browser play.
- Manage download queue and favorites in browser.
- Faster loading times.
- Additional subscription options.
- Simplified multi-computer use.
- Better search and navigation tools.
- New forum software.
- Customizable avatars.
- Improved parental controls.
- Updated digital download store with a better selection and competitive prices.
