Neverwinter Nights: Infinite Dungeons Premium Module

Filed under

Gaming

This week on PCBurn's Linux Game Review we're taking a look at Infinite Dungeons, BioWare's newest (and last) official module for Neverwinter Nights. It's a professionally crafted game expansion that aims to replicate the automatic dungeon generation game play of rogue style dungeon romps such as nethack or ADOM. Let's see how it stacks up.

With the recent cancellation of Neverwinter Nights support and future premium modules by Atari I decided to devote this weeks review to BioWare's latest add-on premium module. Neverwinter Nights Diamond package (all three core games plus the first three modules) has been going for around 20$ at gaming outlets recently. That makes it and the Infinite Dungeons module (which retails for 7.99$ per license download) a very affordable 27.99$(USD) total.

Infinite Dungeons at first glance looks to be an excellent addition to NwN. It offers an on-the-fly dungeon generator similar to what you'll find in NetHack or Moria.

Each time you start the module and enter the dungeon for the first time, levels are created and populated for your adventurer to wander through.

Raspberry Pi's Gallium3D Driver Could Now Run Significantly Faster

Eric Anholt, the lead developer developer behind the Broadcom VC4 Mesa/Gallium3D driver stack for supporting the Raspberry Pi, has announced a new performance achievement. Eric implemented a user-space buffer object cache for the Gallium3D driver. This buffer object cache is designed after the user-space cache he designed for Intel's driver while being employed by them. This cache reuses buffer objects that haven't been shared to other processes and frees buffer objects that have been in the cache unused for over one second. Read more
