  • Fun Packed Open Source Action Games

    The action game is a video game genre that focuses on physical challenges, including hand–eye coordination, anticipation, and reaction time. It is one of the hardest gaming genres to define. Given the popularity and longevity of the action game genre, developers have tinkered with the formula extensively. The genre is therefore fairly wide as it encompasses platform games, fighting games and shooter games. Sometimes real-time strategy games are also included in the genre. Many action games share similar design mechanics.

  • How to Install Wine Gallium Nine in Linux for Near-Native Gaming Performance

    Gallium Nine does something interesting that few other Linux programs do — it re-implements a technology from Windows. In this case Gallium Nine is an open-source implementation of DirectX 9. As a result it matches Windows in DX9 performance and allows you to play DirectX 9 games at as performance as close to native as possible.

    It’s really hard to beat the performance that Gallium Nine offers, which makes it kind of odd that support for Gallium Nine isn’t included by default in Wine. The Wine developers went as far as to reject it. You need to install a specially-configured version of Wine with additional patches to enable it.
