  • Mechanically deep monster taming RPG 'Siralim 3' to be on Linux "a few weeks" after Windows

    I'm a huge fan of monster taming RPGs and seeing more of them get released on PC with Linux support is great. Siralim 3 [Official Site] is another that will have a Linux version.

    The developer, Thylacine Studios, has announced today that the Windows version is going to enter Early Access on My 25th. The Linux version will be "few weeks after that". Considering the previous Siralim games were on Linux, it's good to see this continue.

  • Total War Saga: Thrones of Britannia to be on Linux "one to two months" after the Windows release

    Feral Interactive [Official Site] have today announced that the Linux version of Total War Saga: Thrones of Britannia should be on Linux "one to two months" after the Windows release.

  • Total War Saga: Thrones of Britannia Coming To Linux In A Month Or Two

    Back in February Feral Interactive announced they were bringing Total War Saga: Thrones of Britannia to Linux. While the game is being released for Windows this week, the Linux port is coming in the next month or two.

    With Total War Saga: Thrones of Britannia set to launch on 3 May for Windows, Feral Interactive tweeted and subsequently posted to Reddit a short time ago an update on their porting status. "We are closing fast on the macOS and Linux versions, and are currently *aiming* for macOS and Linux releases one to two months after the Windows release on May 3rd."

  • Steam's Linux Gaming Marketshare For April Comes In At Just Above 0.5%

    With the start of a new month comes the usual updated usage statistics for Valve's Steam gaming service, which for the past month represents an increase in Linux gamers.

    The April 2018 statistics for the Steam Hardware/Software Survey show the Linux gaming market-share at now 0.55%, an increase of 0.22% from the month prior when the Linux users came in at just one-third of a percent. This is quite an increase month-over-month but still tiny compared to the nearly 3% for macOS gamers or 96% for Windows.

    Set in a world that’s being beset by a curse of greed, this isometric RPG is trying to put its own unique touches on the tried and true formula.

  • Jupiter Hell, the modern turn-based sci-fi roguelike is going with Vulkan

    Jupiter Hell [Official Site], the modern turn-based sci-fi roguelike from developer ChaosForge is moving over to using Vulkan.

    Announced on their Kickstarter update back in March, where they announced their public Alpha release for backers, they also detailed what's to come for Jupiter Hell in their next build due in June. Turns out, Vulkan support is going in. I would have noticed sooner, but since I backed the game at the "Early Access" level I haven't been following it too deeply with all the alpha-related information coming in.

  • FBI says Russians hacked [sic] hundreds of thousands of home and office routers

    The warning followed a court order Wednesday that allowed the FBI to seize a website that the hackers [sic] planned to use to give instructions to the routers.

Known as VPNFilter, the malware allowed attackers to collect communications, launch attacks on others, and permanently destroy the devices with a single command. The report said the malware was developed by hackers [sic] working for an advanced nation, possibly Russia, and advised users of affected router models to perform a factory reset, or at a minimum to reboot.

    The OpenStack of a few years ago is dead, however. What has emerged from the hype cycle is a materially different foundation, mission and software stack, with a great deal of change still ahead of it.
  • The OpenStack Foundation grows beyond OpenStack
    The OpenStack Foundation has made a considerable change to its development process and governance structure by introducing two open source projects that are not part of the OpenStack cloud platform. This week, the organization launched version 1.0 of Kata Containers - a runtime system with an emphasis on speed and security, enabling users to boot a VM in as little as five seconds - and introduced a brand new project called Zuul, spinning out the software development and integration platform that has been used by the OpenStack community internally since 2012.

  • iPhone Quarter, ZTE Troubles, Facebook Troubles, Nokia Come-back

    So the past month or two? The Quarterly results cycle came in. The item often of great interest is the Apple iPhone performance. 52.2 million iPhones shipped and that gives roughly a flat market share compared to the year before, so about 14%-15%. I'll come and do the full math later of the quarterly data. That race is no longer in any way interesting.

    But two Top 10 smartphone brands ARE in the news. One who is facing imminent death and the other who is making a miraculous return-from-dead. So imminent death and current Top 10 brand first. ZTE. The Trump administration has put a massive squeeze on ZTE and the company is in serious trouble of imminent collapse. Then bizarrely, Trump reversed course and felt he needed to protect CHINESE employment (???) and after yet another typical Trump-mess, we now are at a Never-Neverland where Trump's own party Republicans are revolting against their President and well, ZTE may end up a casualty of this mess. We'll keep an eye on it.
