Outside impact

By the end of 2005, Macologist had been cited three times in MacAddict magazine. In May 2005, Macworld, the other major US Macintosh print magazine, incorporated the Macologist-developed Santaduck Toolpak, a benchmarking utility for the game Unreal Tournament 2004, into its benchmarking suite. The Santaduck Toolpak was also cited by Apple Computer upon the introduction of its first revision iMac G5, is also used by the benchmarking sites and, and received an Honorable Mention award in the NVIDIA-Epic Make Something Unreal contest. Both the tools as well as several mod download URLs are also listed at the Apple website. One of the hosts of the Mac Games Radio podcast is featured as a Macologist editor.

Macologist reviews and technical benchmarking articles have also been cited by some game developers. For example for the hit game Doom 3, the Macintosh version's publisher Aspyr Media's website refers users to a link at Macologist for optimization questions, as does their technical support staff. The Feral Interactive website also lists several links to Macologist reviews, for example for Chessmaster 9000.
