  • Tomb Raider, the awesome 2013 version looks like it's heading to SteamOS & Linux

    I'm actually a big fan of the game, as I played it when it came out on PS3, but sadly I never got to finish it for various reasons. Being able to do so on my favourite system, that's bloody brilliant.

    I wonder who's doing the port? Any guesses folks?

  • Retro style Arcade Shoot 'em up Bit Blaster XL released on SteamOS & Linux

    Bit Blaster XL is a mobile port of an arcade shoot em up now released on SteamOS and Linux. It's origins are very obvious from the get-go.
    Your space ship moves and shoots all by itself without the need of pressing any buttons. The only thing you can do is turn it left or right and give it a little boost.

  • Open Game Benchmarks, a brand new benchmarking website for Linux games

    I have been hoping to see something like this. Open Game Benchmarks is a brand new website dedicated to showing off benchmarks from Linux games.

    Previously we've only really had Phoronix (and people know how I feel about the quality on Phoronix in recent times), so it's good to see some healthy competition in the Linux benchmarking area. While we do benchmarks, it's generally only on big new titles as we focus more on the Sales Page, the Calendar and general day to day Linux gaming news.
