  • Shakedown Hawaii, the follow up to Retro City Rampage should be on Linux

    Shakedown Hawaii is something that popped up in my twitter feed today, and I must say it looks really rather good. Reminds me of the original Grand Theft Auto games quite a lot.

  • Development On Valve's VOGL Debugger Seems To Have Stalled

    Two years ago at this time all of the excitement was building up around Valve's VOGL OpenGL debugger. While the VOGL source code hasn't even been public for two years yet, there hasn't been any new public activity to report on with the debugger in over a half-year.

    VOGL was getting much attention when it was talked about in early 2014 and then open-sourced in March of that year. The first few months were exciting with VOGL seeing plenty of commits, work on Voglperf, etc.

  • The new Master of Orion 4X strategy game might see a Linux release

    I've put millions of hours into Master of Orion 2 both on Windows and in later years in DosBox on Linux, so to hear about a brand new Master of Orion was quite exciting. I've been following it for a while, and it looks like it might get a Linux release.

    I noticed on SteamDB they added Linux to the supported "oslist", that's a great sign but remember this is completely unconfirmed right now. I have reached out to the developer to get confirmation, and will update you all if I get any.

  • Gaming: Portal Stories: Mel

    The last days, after about 20 hours of gameplay, I have finally finished Portal Stories: Mel, the single player mod for Portal 2. After having played Portal and Portal 2, I have to say this one mod took be by surprise. I remember very well that, after having played through Portal 2 and found it to easy, I was pointed to Portal Stories: Mel in several comments, I thought “Well, it cannot be that difficult!”. I couldn’t have been more wrong!

Ubuntu Core has the keys to IoT security

In October, a DDoS attack on Dyn's infrastructure took down a big chunk of the internet, making sites like Amazon and Twitter inaccessible. It was the first major attack involving IoT (internet of things) devices. Fortunately, it was also a benign attack: no one got hurt, no one died. However, the next attack could be catastrophic. No one knows when it will happen. No one knows the magnitude. Read more

Android Marshmallow on PC Falls Flat

The Android-x86 Project eventually may become a viable operating system alternative for your desktop and laptops computers, but it's not there yet. You will have to wait a while for the developers to fix a number of failures with the latest release upgrading Android-x86 to Marshmallow 6.0.1. The developers late this summer released the first stable version of Android-x86 6.0, codenamed "Marshmallow." Android-x86 lets you run the Android OS with the Google Chrome browser on your desktop and laptop computers, rather than buying one of the qualified Chromebooks with the Google Play Store features bolted on.
