The wildly popular game Rocket League is expected to be playable on GNU/Linux soon. Rocket League is a multiplayer physics based Soccer game played with fast booster, rigged vehicles in place of athletes, and is the sequel to Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars! Since its release last year for Playstation 4 and Windows, Rocket League has gathered a huge following, which has only increased the demand for a Linux version.

  • Steam for Linux Now Has 1700 Games, with Less than 1% Marketshare

    It looks like Steam for Linux managed to move past another milestone, 1,700 games for the open source platform.

  • Dreamfall Chapters review

    It’s certainly one of the better games I have played on Linux thus far.

  • How 1,699 Linux games can give Steam OS a boost

    As of today, there are 1,699 games on Steam compatible with Linux. That's just one game short of a 1,700 of a significant milestone. But why the obsession with numbers on a platform traditionally associated more with servers and render farms and very rarely modern games? Because Valve has placed all its Steam OS eggs in one Linux basket and the adoption of the operating system in this market will ultimately seal the fate of what is perhaps the company's biggest, not to mention riskiest, business venture.

  • Steam Machine: Valve has placed big bets on Linux, for gaming!

    As the owner of the Valve the company behind Steam — the most popular online store for digital games — Gabe Newell saw Windows 8 as a threat to the freedom of the Windows software market. The idea of Windows being locked to installing software from a Microsoft-controlled store isn’t a pleasant one if your core business is to run a software store.

Filed under
Gaming

This forthcoming week will surely mark 1,700 Linux games being able natively via Steam.

At the moment of writing, there's been 1,699 games available for Linux and the Debian-based SteamOS. By later this week if not tomorrow, that will cross the 1,700 milestone!

We've been seeing almost 100 new Steam Linux games released per month, but that changed since the 1,600 milestone with Valve no longer listing some games that carried external dependencies outside of the Steam Runtime and other barriers.

  • Readers Say ‘No’ to Antivirus on Linux
    A few weeks back when Ken Starks wrote an anecdotal column on an experience with a false positive from Avast antivirus on GNU/Linux, we started thinking. We run antivirus on our LAMP servers with the intent of protecting poor suckers on Windows, but on our Linux desktops and laptops? Pretty much, no. Some of us had tried the open source ClamAV at one time or another, mainly out of curiosity, but none of us had stuck with it. To our knowledge, until Starks wrote his column none of us even knew anybody who had ever run proprietary AV on Linux boxes.
