  • 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.

Linux 4.17 RC6

  • Linux 4.17-rc6
    Things continue to be fairly calm. There's a couple of commits in here that aren't "trivial few-liners", but most of it really is pretty small. And in fact, a quarter of the full patch for the week is tooling - and the bulk of that is the testing subdirectory. In fact, drivers are in the minority here, because another 30% is arch updates (arm, s390, x86), and we even have more lines of filesystem fixes than we have driver fixes (admittedly mostly due to a few of the more-than-a-few-liner patches being to filesystems: afs and btrfs). We do have a few driver fixes (all over - hwmon, usb, sound, acpi, gpu), but it's all really small. So nothing special to report. Go read the shortlog, pull the changes, build, and test. It should all be good and pretty stable by this point. Linus
  • Linux 4.17-rc6 Kernel Released As Another "Fairly Calm" Release
    Linux 4.17 is up to its sixth weekly release candidate ahead of the official release expected by mid-June.
