  • Some thoughts on Realpolitiks, a real-time grand strategy game now on Linux

    Realpolitiks [Steam, Official Site] is a new real-time (with pausing) grand strategy game from Jujubee S.A. and I was sent a key by the developer to be able to take a look.

    It does have a demo available on Steam, so it will be worth taking a look to see if it's your thing.

    A couple of things to note first of all: The game seems to be locked to 60FPS and you cannot adjust the scrolling speed or the interface at all. I actually found the text a bit too small, which didn't help my enjoyment of it.

  • Narita Boy, an absolutely incredible looking 2D scroller with RPG elements is on Kickstarter
  • Trying The SteamVR Beta On Linux Feels More Like An Early Alpha

    This past week Valve brought SteamVR on Linux into public beta. With watching the constant hype around VR on Windows, I was quite excited to finally give VR a try with having lined up an HTC Vive for testing and currently Oculus or others not offering current Linux support. I was thinking that I would have some large GPU/driver comparisons and such completed this weekend, but once actually setting up the hardware and software, I realized that wasn't going to be feasible in such short time. So for those interested in the Linux VR space, here are some of my first impressions and why I would consider the current SteamVR more like an alpha release than beta, just yet another struggle Linux gamers face, and another obstacle to overcome if Linux is to be a more serious competitor to Windows in the gaming space.

  • [Older] Telecoms copying cloud providers make beeline for open source, say analysts
    The supersonic growth of Amazon Web Services and other cloud providers in the past few years owes much to open-source communities that fed them cutting-edge tech free-of-charge. Now telecom is mimicking this strategy through involvement with the Linux Foundation, according to Scott Raynovich (@rayno) (pictured, right), guest host of theCUBE, SiliconANGLE Media’s mobile live streaming studio.

  • Libreboot Applies to Rejoin GNU
    Last week we reported that after reorganization, Libreboot was considering rejoining GNU and was seeking input from its community to determine the amount of support it had for such a move. From reading the comments posted both on our article on FOSS Force and on Libreboot’s website, it comes as no surprise that the project’s core members feel they have the necessary consesus to proceed. Last night, FOSS Force received an email — sent jointly to us and Phoronix — letting us know of the decision. Rather than repeat what’s already been written and said on the subject (for that, follow the first link above), we’re publishing a slightly edited version of the email, which will pretty much bring everyone up to date on the situation.
