  • Infinity Runner Released For Linux Plus Our Thoughts

    Infinity Runner is a great looking first person action game that involves a lot of running. We give it a try to see how it performs.

    I am an absolute sucker for space sci-fi themed games, and just had to give this one a try to report back to you on.

    Sadly though, the game itself really isn't all that interesting and if you have played simple Android games like Temple Run it's very much the same type of game. You are always running, and you don't control the running aspect at all.

  • Torchlight II to Get a Linux Version Soon on Steam

    Torchlight II, an action hack-and-slash title developed and published by Runic Games on Steam, might get a Linux version soon.

    The developers from Runic Games are not at their first try to port one of their games. The first title in the series was promoted on Linux with the help of a Humble Bundle collection, but the game manifested some very problematic technical issues that persisted for a long time, like the missing face of the main characters. Hopefully, the second iteration will be much better.

Korora 21

My install went quite well, I had no problems and the install itself was relatively speedy. Bear in mind, however, that I have used the Anaconda installer often in the past. So I’m quite familiar with how it is laid out and what it has to offer. Use the Fedora install guide for Anaconda I linked to above if you’re new to it as it might save you some time when installing Korora 21. Read more

How to run Linux and Chrome OS on your Chromebook

Chromebooks are pretty darn handy. Even some hardcore Windows users now acknowledge that a Chromebook might be just what you need for work. But, as great as Chromebooks are, and as much progress as Google has made in getting "Web-only" apps such as Google Docs to work offline, there are still times that you want an application that's only available off-line such as the LibreOffice office suite or the GIMP photo editor. For those times, it's darn handy to be able to run a Linux desktop on a Chromebook. Read more
