The long-awaited Mac OS X port of Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition has finally gotten a release date, and it is February 22, 2013. It will initially be arriving at Beamdog, where you can already begin preloading the game, and coming soon to the Mac App Store. If you're a stickler for getting game patches as soon as they are released, history with both the Windows and iPad releases suggests that you should get the Beamdog version. There is always a delay in deploying updates through Apple's app stores due to the additional approval process. Steamplay for this title is highly unlikely right now, considering the publishing/updating situation with the current Steam version of the game, although never say never.

As promised, Bioware delivered a new patch for Dragon Age 2 today for PC/Mac users. The console versions, which will update the game title to '1.01' instead of '1.02', is still undergoing the testing and approval process by Microsoft and Sony and will likely be made available next week. The patch is cumulative, meaning that the fixes from Patch 1.01 are included in the download for Patch 1.02. You do not need to patch twice. Read More
Aspyr Media's Mac port of Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic has been available for nearly 7 years now. However, if you're a fan of digital downloads, or looking for a not ridiculous price for the game, then you can download it for $19.99 over at Apple's Mac App Store. You'll need the latest version of Snow Leopard to access the App Store, and you can find the system requirements for KOTOR here.

Macworld has just posted a preview blurb for Dragon Age 2, and has confirmed that the disc for the PC version will also contain a version that will run on the Mac OSX as well. There will also be digital versions to download from Mac gaming stores, though no Steamplay version yet.
To run it, you'll need an Intel Core 2 Duo and at least an Nvidia 9400. The new Macbook Air, as well as 2008-09 Macbooks and Macbook Minis, should be able to handle it.
