  • Feedback needed for our 'Linux Game Of The Year Award' that will start soon

    We've run a GOTY award for the last two years and this year will be no different! I am requesting feedback!

    The page is currently open, with the categories adjusted from last year: https://www.gamingonlinux.com/goty.php

    If you have a suggestion for a category, please let me know, but I don't want too many more as I think we already have a good selection going from feedback last year.

  • Valve seems to have removed the SteamPlay logo from Steam

    Something that didn't go unnoticed was that Valve has removed the SteamPlay logo from Steam store pages.

    This is interesting, as it was a partial source of confusion amongst SteamOS/Linux gamers. Plenty of us know how to easily identify games that have Linux support, but there was plenty who didn't. People were genuinely getting confused about it all and I don't blame them.

  • Vendetta Online 1.8.398 MMORPG Adds Better Game Controller Support for Gear VR

    Guild Software announced a new update to their cross-platform, multiplayer Vendetta Online 1.8 MMORPG, versioned 1.8.398, which ships only a few days after the 1.8.397 maintenance update.

    As you might imagine, Vendetta Online 1.8.398 is a small patch addressing various issues reported by users from the previous point release, but also adding significant improvements to analog stick sensitivity for various game controllers made by Razer, Moga, SteelSeries, and Nyko, when playing the game with the Samsung Gear VR headset.

  • My top list of must-have strategy games on Linux as of right now

    Are you a new Linux gamer wondering what strategy games we have? Or perhaps you’re just in the mood for something new! Here’s my current top list of Linux strategy games.

  • 'The Final Station' released on Linux

    I'm very glad to see that after a long journey, The Final Station has finally arrived at the Linux platform, with a hefty discount this Autumn Steam Sale.

    The game is very atmospheric and the story reminds me of works by Zajdel and Strugatsky brothers. The nostalgia of the dying world and the inevitability of moving forward, even at the price of leaving something or someone behind really spoke to me. But don't take my word for it, go and experience it on your own!

Ten Years as Desktop Linux User: My Open Source World, Then and Now

I've been a regular desktop Linux user for just about a decade now. What has changed in that time? Keep reading for a look back at all the ways that desktop Linux has become easier to use -- and those in which it has become more difficult -- over the past ten years. I installed Linux to my laptop for the first time in the summer of 2006. I started with SUSE, then moved onto Mandriva and finally settled on Fedora Core. By early 2007 I was using Fedora full time. There was no more Windows partition on my laptop. When I ran into problems or incompatibilities with Linux, my options were to sink or swim. There was no Windows to revert back to. Read more
