Do any of the virtual machines offer directx support? if so which and any luck gaming on them?

No and no.
You're stuck with Windows natively or Wine.

actually not strictly true.
parallels does actually support directx 8 but it is not great with games. And it is onyl on the mac afaik.
so yes, it is true really....

Parallels and VMWare Fusion have DX 8 support on Mac. IIRC VMWare has support for DX on Windows also.
Though, on Linux, there is no solution other than running Windows natively or using Wine.
