More about Linux games - Part 5

Filed under
Gaming

This time of season again: Linux gaming. Today, I will show you several more interesting titles that you may want to run on your Linux desktop. We'll mainly talk about strategy games, but we'll also see a few special, unique games, including a pair focused on physics. Hmm, physics, you say? Physics, fun, does not seem to go well together. Wait until you read the article, then. We'll also review a Java/Flash game, so all those who love to play games through their Web browser, this one is for you. Oh, we'll also mention an incredible new First Person Shooter toward the end of the article, so don't run away after four paragraphs!

Toribash - Violence Perfected

Toribash is one of the more unique games ever created. Truly. It has a very simple mission statement: decapitate your enemy. That's all. And ye of little faith would think that such a basic scenario makes for a very dull game. Not at all.

Fresh software from the 3.14 menu

If all goes according to plan, I'll be able to merge the aforementioned automatic rotation support into systemd/udev. The kernel API is pretty bad, which makes the user-space code look bad...

Florida is back on the Map for Linux and Open Source conventions with FOSSETCON 2

In summary the event was a good investment in time and booth expenses spent. We were able to distribute and promote Fedora in a very positive manner. More importantly getting more information on the various spins offered on our website pointed out to many individuals that there are more available on the Fedora Project website.. As the event ended on the 13th, I had had a conversation with the event coordinator with the plus side and the down side of what was going on. Read more

Linux 3.17-rc6

It's been quiet - enough so that coupled with my upcoming travel, this might just be the last -rc, and final 3.17 might be next weekend. Of course, that still depends on what happens - if we have something scary coming up next week, I may have to delay things. But as it looks right now, we're all good to go. The shortlog is appended, but the view from ten thousand feet is pretty normal: a bit more than half is drivers (gpu, sound, iio, media, usb), just under a third is arch updates (arm, mips, x86), and the rest is mainly filesystem updates (gfs2, cifs, btrfs, nfs). Nothing particular stands out, and I'm not aware of any big pending issues either. So please go out and test, because this *should* all be pretty close to release. Read more
