  • New Doom Game Runs Great in Linux with Wine, Users Report

    A new Doom game is being released by Bethesda and id Software, and it seems to be working great with Wine in Linux.

    When new titles are launched on the Windows platform, it usually takes a while for Wine to catch up. Most of the time, there are missing libraries or some other form error, which means that, at best, the game can be installed and not played.

    The Wine developers and community are usually quick to fix any issues, especially with big games, but it's very likely that it won't be necessary. A Linux user managed to get the latest Doom Alpha running in Wine with little to no effort.

  • Microsoft's latest tactics show Gabe Newell of Valve was right to worry

  • Deponia Doomsday: initial thoughts and early review

    Out of nowhere, Daedalic decided to release a sequel to their most popular (and often divisive) point-and-click game series Deponia, announcing it just a week before release to the surprise of many. Those who played the original trilogy will know that it ended very definitively and was intended to be a trilogy with a clear beginning, middle and end. Similarly, the ending drew a bit of criticism and left fans hungry for more, so despite being an unexpected surprise, a sequel also makes perfect sense.

  • Overfall, an exploration strategy game released for SteamOS & Linux, some thoughts

    I had a chance to take a look at Overfall, a very interesting mix of rogue-like exploration, RPG and strategy mechanics wrapped up in a funny looking shell.

  • Trulon: The Shadow Engine RPG released for Linux & SteamOS

    I am happy to say that the Linux version seems to work really well, one minor graphical glitch and that's all I've noticed. Turn off Bloom, and you will have a better experience.

  • Want to see the very popular Stardew Valley on Linux? There's a chance

    Stardew Valley from ConcernedApe and Chucklefish is a big hit right now, and it's possible it could come to Linux without enough of a push from Linux gamers.

  • Linux Gaming Marketshare Regressed So Far 2016

    While more Steam Linux games continue to appear, the overall market-share still hasn't been trending upwards in the Linux battle against Windows and OS X.

    The Steam 2016 January statistics showed the Linux gaming marketshare regressing on a percentage basis and that was carried over to February. The February 2016 Steam survey results are now available and it doesn't show the Linux gaming market-share as a percentage improving at all.

    Today I took a look at We Are The Dwarves on Linux. It looks good and I love these games, but is it any good?

  • There Are Now 1,900 Steam Linux Games Available For Download

    After a recent Steam change, there were more than 1,900 Steam Linux games listed as Valve ended up including yet-to-be-released Linux game ports. That total including unreleased Linux games is now up to 2,009! But in terms of released Linux game titles available for download right now, the 1,900 threshold was crossed tonight to end out February.

  • XWayland Gains Partial XvidMode Support To Run Older Linux Games

    The latest X.Org Server code's XWayland support path now is able to run some older Linux games.

    Landing within the X.Org Server Git code-base is partial xvidmode extension support for XWayland, for running older Linux games that lack native Wayland support, such as those making use of SDL1. The work was done by Red Hat's Olivier Fourdan.

  • American Truck Simulator On Linux

    Another year, another simulation game from S.C.S Software. I should preface this article by saying I am not usually a fan of simulation game-- whether they be truck, plane, bus, or anything else. That being said... I might be a convert after this.

Open source near ubiquitous in IoT, report finds

Open source is increasingly standard operating procedure in software, but nowhere is this more true than Internet of Things development. According to a new VisionMobile survey of 3,700 IoT developers, 91% of respondents use open source software in at least one area of their software stack. This is good news for IoT because only open source promises to reduce or eliminate the potential for lock-in imposed by proprietary “standards.” What’s perhaps most interesting in this affection for open source, however, is that even as enterprise developers have eschewed the politics of open source licensing, IoT developers seem to favor open source because “it’s free as in freedom.” Read more

Ubuntu 16.04 – My Experience so Far and Customization

While I earnestly anticipated the release of Unity 8 with Xenial Xerus (after watching a couple of videos that showcased its function), I was utterly disappointed that Canonical was going to further push its release — even though it was originally meant to debut with Ubuntu 14.04. Back to the point at hand, I immediately went ahead and installed Unity Tweak Tool, moved my dash to the bottom (very important) and then proceeded to replace Nautilus with the extensive Nemo file manager which is native to Linux Mint and by far superior to the former (my opinion).

Raspberry Pi gets a hybrid tube audio amp HAT

Pi 2 Design’s 503HTA Hybrid Tube Amp is a HAT add-on for 40-pin Raspberry Pi’s that taps a 24-bit, 192Khz DAC for that old-time tube amplifier sound. The Raspberry Pi has inspired a variety of retro technology hacks, from resurrecting ancient televisions to breathing new life into vintage gaming platforms. So it’s not surprising to see the SBC matched with the guts of an old-school tube amplifier system, as it is in Pi 2 Design’s 503HTA Hybrid Tube Amp. Read more
