  • Former Free-to-Play Quake Live Now $9.99 on Steam, Linux Support Dropped

    Bethesda Softworks, the publisher of the famous Fallout 4 that gets a lot of attention these days, is also responsible for another game called Quake Live, developed by id Software and available on Steam. That game went from free to $9.99 (€9.99), and the Linux support was dropped.

  • Magicka 2 Officially Released For SteamOS & Linux

    After a short beta period Magicka 2 is now officially available for the roll out of Steam Machines, and for those of us on normal Linux desktops too of course. They accidentally pushed it out earlier, removed it again and now it's officially out.

    I wonder how many "now on Linux" posts I'm going to be doing today, a few I hope!
