    Will Fight for Food: Super Actual Sellout: Game of the Hour wins my award for most annoying name of a game ever.

  • 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!

  • Stop Everything, Tea Party Simulator 2015 Released For Linux

    Will these joke simulator games ever end? Who honestly is going to buy Tea Party Simulator 2015? Goat Simulator was funny, but this...

  • 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.

  • Steam Roguelike Sale Brings 40 Cheap Linux, Windows, and Mac Games

    If you're into roguelike video games and you're one of those Linux geeks who loves playing great titles like Dungeons of Dredmor, Cargo Commander, Bionic Dues, or The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth, you should know that there's a game sale on Steam for Linux.

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.

  • Age Of Wonders III Fully Released On Linux, Some Early Thoughts & A Port Report

    Age of Wonders III has been highly requested by Linux fans, and now that it’s fully released I decided to take a look.

    The developers graciously gave me a copy to test, so many thanks to them for this.

    The Linux (and Mac) versions came alongside a new patch, and a brand new expansion. You can see their official news post on Steam linked here.

  • The Banner Saga Is Finally Available For Linux

  • Gratuitous Space Battles 2 Released For Linux, Some Thoughts Included

    It’s a great time to be a fan of space combat games, and the latest release for us is Gratuitous Space Battles 2 which I’ve taken a look at.

    The game was ported to Linux thanks to Ethan Lee, who has done quite a number of ports for us now. He’s much like Ryan Gordon in the way that he ports a lot of other people’s games. His ports are usually good too.

  • Linux Kernel Podcast for 2017/03/21
  • Announcing the Shim review process [Ed: accepting rather than fighting very malicious things]
    However, a legitimate criticism has been that there's very little transparency in Microsoft's signing process. Some people have waited for significant periods of time before being receiving a response. A large part of this is simply that demand has been greater than expected, and Microsoft aren't in the best position to review code that they didn't write in the first place.

  • Chakra GNU/Linux Users Get KDE Plasma 5.9.3 and KDE Applications 16.12.3, More
    Neofytos Kolokotronis from the Chakra GNU/Linux project, an open-source operating system originally based on Arch Linux and the KDE Plasma desktop environment, announced the availability of the latest KDE updates in the distro's repositories. Those of you using Chakra GNU/Linux as your daily drive will be happy to learn that the stable repos were filled with numerous up-to-date packages from the recently released KDE Plasma 5.9.3 desktop environment, KDE Applications 16.12.3 software suite, and KDE Frameworks 5.32.0 collection of over 70 add-on libraries for Qt 5.
  • YaST Team: Highlights of YaST development sprint 32
    One of the known limitations of the current installer is that it’s only able to automatically propose an encrypted schema if LVM is used. For historical reasons, if you want to encrypt your root and/or home partitions but not to use LVM, you would need to use the expert partitioner… and hope for the best from the bootloader proposal. But the new storage stack is here (well, almost here) to make all the old limitations vanish. With our testing ISO it’s already possible to set encryption with just one click for both partition-based and LVM-based proposals. The best possible partition schema is correctly created and everything is encrypted as the user would expect. We even have continuous tests in our internal openQA instance for it. The part of the installer managing the bootloader installation is still not adapted, which means the resulting system would need some manual fixing of Grub before being able to boot… but that’s something for an upcoming sprint (likely the very next one).

  • Asus Tinker Board – Chromium YouTube Performance
    One of the many strengths of the Asus Tinker Board is its multimedia support. This 4K video capable machine is a mouthwatering prospect for the multimedia enthusiast. The machine has a respectable 1.8GHz ARM Cortex-A17 quad-core processor. It’s only 32-bit (unlike the Raspberry Pi 3) but has a higher clock speed. The Tinker Board also sports an integrated ARM-based Mali T764 graphics processor (GPU).
