  • Unique first-person shooter Shotgun Farmers adds an amusing Horde Mode

    In Shotgun Farmers when you shoot and miss, your bullets sink into the ground and grow new guns. It's a brilliant idea and it just got a huge update.

    With this big update, it introduces a co-op Horde Mode for you and a few others to face off against 50 waves of increasingly difficult zombie farmers and infected animals on a brand new map. That's in addition to the existing team deathmatch, free for all, capture the pig, tournament and other game modes.

  • Korean survival horror The Coma 2: Vicious Sisters enters Early Access with Linux support

    Devespresso Games and Headup continue their great Linux support, with a same-day released of The Coma 2: Vicious Sisters.

    After launching their story-driven roguelike Vambrace: Cold Soul earlier this year, Devespresso went back to their scarier roots with a sequel to their debut title The Coma: Cutting Class which was given a revamp and Linux support with The Coma: Recut back in 2017. This latest game in the series takes you back to Sehwa High, with a new protagonist and a very angry psychotic killer out to get you.

  • Comedy adventure game 3 Minutes to Midnight funded and coming to Linux

    Scarecrow Studio have raised enough funding to have a successful Kickstarter campaign for 3 Minutes to Midnight, a comedy adventure game due out next year.

    They seem to be pulling out all the stops on this one. Fully voiced, high quality art with locations having both night and day with different things going on, a huge script, tons of people to meet and speak to, two playable characters, multiple solutions to different puzzles plus lots of accessibility features you would expect out of a properly modern point and click adventure.

  • Ghost Grab 3000 is a very satisfying arcade game where you chain ghosts together

    Ghost Grab 3000 just recently released after a delay due to the Halloween sales and it's a huge amount of fun.

Firefox 72.0.2 also addresses a web compatibility issue with CSS Shadow Parts, which shipped as part of the Firefox 72 release, a hang that occurred when opening about:logins when a master password is set, issues reported by users when attempting to open files containing spaces in their path, as well as various stability issues.

XanMod-ing Ubuntu To Perform Closer To Intel's Clear Linux

Earlier this month many Phoronix readers were interested in our fresh tests of the XanMod-patched Linux kernel for boosting the desktop and workstation performance compared to Ubuntu's default Linux kernel. Among many patches, XanMod does pull in some kernel patches from Intel's performance-optimized Clear Linux, so we figured it would be interesting to see how the XanMod'ed Ubuntu compares to Clear Linux performance. As covered more in the earlier article, the XanMod Linux kernel flavor makes use of the BFQ I/O scheduler, offers CPU scaling governor improvements, makes use of preemptive full tickless kernel settings, and has a variety of other patches from leveraging Clear Linux optimizations to the BMQ process scheduler to the Proton FSYNC patches to much more. This round of testing was using a daily snapshot of Ubuntu 20.04 LTS with its current Linux 5.4 default kernel and then re-tested using the same Ubuntu 20.04 LTS installation but running on the 4.1.10-xanmod6 kernel at the time. Additionally, the same CFLAGS/CXXFLAGS as Clear Linux defaults to were also utilized. Read more
