  • Arma 3 Is Officially Being Worked On For Linux By An External Team, Won’t Be Native

    The Arma developers have confirmed that an external team is working on the Linux version, and that it won’t be native.

    For me, I don’t really care what a game uses anymore, as long as it is stable and performs well on reasonable hardware. If it does that, then fab!

  • A Brief History of Steam

    There’s no question that Steam has become an ubiquitous part of PC gaming. Some have hailed it as the savior of PC gaming, while others have seen it as more of a necessary evil. Whether or not you’re a fan, Steam is here to stay. Its massive storefront contains over 4,500 games, and some 125 million people actively use the service. The question we’re trying to answer here is this: How the hell did Steam get to where it is today?

  • Survivor Squad: Gauntlets Adds Linux Support, Looks Really Fun

    Survivor Squad: Gauntlets has recently added Linux support to their Early Access title. Honestly, I didn't think much of it looking at screenshots, but you really do need to watch a gameplay video to understand it, and it looks fun.

    I really do love the idea behind this game, and making sure to remember to keep checking everywhere looks like mad fun. Looks like it can get quite difficult too.

    It is in Early Access, but the developers stated that the full release is only just around the corner!

  • Dungeons 2 Strategy Game Released On Steam For Linux

    Dungeons 2 is another game to come to Linux thanks to Kalypso Media Digital, and it's very much like the old Dungeon Keeper games.

    Reviewers are giving it the thumbs up so far, so it looks like it could be a good one. It looks like it has a few performance issues, and silly bugs, but it's a brand new release so that's to be expected.

  • Ubuntu 15.04 Brings Better Intel Performance For CS:GO & TF2

    With the release of Ubuntu 15.04 coming this week I've been busy running some fresh comparison benchmarks between the "Vivd Vervet" and former versions of Ubuntu Linux. For Intel HD Graphics users, in this article are two quick results showing how the performance of Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and Team Fortress 2 has improved on the open-source Intel Linux graphics driver over the past six months between Ubuntu 14.10 and 15.04.

  • There's Now More Than 1,100 Games On Steam For Linux

    It was just last month I wrote about there being more than 1,000 games on Steam for Linux/SteamOS. Recently, Steam crossed the 1,100 games milestone; over one hundred additions in just over one month!

  • Unigine 2.0 Beta 2 Brings PBR, SSR, Kinect 2 Support

    While we sadly don't hear too much these days from Unigine on the Linux gaming front, their high-end 3D graphics engine remains Linux-compatible and they seem to be doing well off in the area of simulations and more. Unigine 2.0 has been out in preview form since last year and coming out today is the second beta.

  • Shadow Warrior For Linux Updated, Now More Graphically Awesome

    The Shadow Warrior release for Linux did miss out a few graphical features, but the developers have now implemented them all.

    I’ve tested it out and wow, the performance with everything on Ultra is amazing. I was getting above 150FPS a lot on my Nvidia 970, and this is at 1920x1080 resolution. This is how you port a game folks! Can easily recommend it now.

  • Techland Presentation On Porting Dying Light To Linux

    A key fact here is that out of around 300 people, only two people work on the Linux version (the two presenting). While it’s true that throwing more people into it doesn’t always help, it’s hard to imagine the colossal project they had to port. This presentation will give you an idea of the struggle they had, and kudos to them for their work.

It's safe to say that Acer's gone a little batty this morning - the company crammed announcement after announcement into a press conference overlooking the New York City skyline, but some of the most interesting stuff didn't get much detail. Case in point: The company's working on an Android-powered Predator tablet to go along with its series of angular, red and black gaming PCs and it's going to launch by the end of 2015.

  • Wait, Gedit Text Editor is Unmaintained?!
    Gedit is the default text editor on Ubuntu and just about a bajillion other Linux distros — but it’s also unmaintained. Did you know that? I didn’t. Not until a reader mentioned it to me earlier today. And, sure enough, head over to Gedit page on the GNOME Wiki and you can see for yourself that the project is “no longer maintained” and is “looking for new maintainers”.
  • Going to GUADEC 2017
    This year I am also giving a presentation about the application story in Endless OS. Our infrastructure, our changes to GNOME Software, our heavy use of Flatpak, etc. Hopefully you’ll find it interesting.

It is not ready for primetime yet as we are still working on the server side glvnd piece we need for XWayland. That said with both Adam Jackson looking at this from our side and Kyle Brenneman looking at it from NVidia I am sure we will be able to hash out the remaining open questions and get that done.

    Yesterday I completed an incredible first year in the fedora project, I noticed it because I was awarded with one badge for it (egg badge). I arrived a month ago through whatcanidoforfedora, who told me that it was a good idea to go to ambassadors, commops and infrastructure, I tried first in ambassadors and immediately I was kicked :P. being member of any major parts of the fedora project requires a lot of patience and work. that was my first learning about the the project.
