A new beta update to Duke Nukem 3D: Megaton Edition is now out.
The Duke Nukem 3D: Megaton Edition game is a modest feature and graphics re-make of the Duke Nukem 3D: Atomic Edition, Duke It Out In D.C., Duke Caribbean: Life's a Beach, and Duke: Nuclear Winter titles. The Windows version has been out for a while on Steam while the Linux version is still evolving.
Valve pushed down the SteamOS update 123 to their Alchemist Beta channel this week.
Besides pulling in updated upstream packages from the Debian 7.6 base, there's a fix for situations where applying updates would require multiple reboots. Additionally, the SteamOS Compositor has been fixed for addressing corruption on the first time a overlay or notification is rendered to the screen. Most of the package updates in alchemist_beta 123 involve security fixes and/or minor upstream package updates.
When it comes to gaming, Linux has taken major steps forward. What once was a deserted island for gamers has now become a growing arena for both gaming fans as well as game developers. With each passing week, we see more and more gaming franchises debuting on this platform. Thanks to the massive investment of Steam in Linux, you can now have a full-fledged gaming experience without booting up your Windows installation.
