Mac Pirates! coming soon

Pirates! news icon
Wow, I guess you had not seen that one coming, actual Pirates! news for the first time in a year and a half! :)

Feral, a small company that is making a business out of porting PC games to the Mac platform, is close to finishing up work on a Mac OS version of our beloved Sid Meier's Pirates!

More information can be found in this post over at MacNN.

While I have your attention... :)

We recently opened a fansite for one of Sid's other classics, Colonization: Hooked on Colonization. (okay, technically Sid wasn't very involved in Colonization, but you know what I mean). :)

Sid Meier's Pirates! review (PSP)

Pirates! news icon
You didn't think Hooked Gamers would pass up an opportunity to review Sid Meier's Pirates! for the PSP did you? Crewmate Rook had trouble putting away his PSP while playing the game. You can read his findings in the full article.

Here's a blurb:

A sailor's life has never been easy, less so when you make a living preying off of the commerce of a major European power in the 1600s. As you embark on your first voyage into the Caribbean to hunt your prey, whomever that may be, the sights and sounds of Pirates! are all very familiar. Your objective in life is to avenge your disgraced name and recover not only your lost family members, but also the untold fortunes of lost cities. Also, you should be aware of the benefits of holding rank and title with one or more of the major political powers. Rough seas, epics sea battles and daring sword fights await you over the horizon.

Sid Meier's Pirates! sails to PSP

Site news icon
P1.jpgOriginally released in 1987, remade for the PC in 2004, and then ported to the Xbox in 2005, Pirates! is one of Sid Meier's most frequently revisited creations. The strategy-adventure game puts players in the role of a pirate captain in the 17th-century Caribbean attempting to track down kidnapped family members, extract revenge for past wrongs, find romance, and amass a huge fortune.

Thatís right folks it seems like Pirates! will finally come to the PSP. It is scheduled to sail into PlayStation Portable owners port sometime in the early part of next year. This excellent pirate game will make a fine addition to the large number of titles available for this gaming platform. I canít wait for this one as it is a great game!

Yup, you read that right!

There are now over 250 mods in the Mod Database and it's still going strong. Hooked on Pirates! modding has always had the most active Sid Meier's Pirates! modding community (besides having the most active forum community - don't let the numbers deceive you hehe) and it shows. Besides this 'mountain' of mods, the database has all sorts of other files as well. If you haven't tried modding your game yet, you should check it out.

A big thanks to everyone for making the mod database and forums such a (continued) success, even now, almost 2 years after the game was released!
