  • 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.

  • We Are The Dwarves, a real-time tactical adventure now on Linux, some thoughts

    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?

    As of this evening on Steam, there are 1,900 released games available for download with native Linux support.

    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.

Programming/Development: fwupd, LLVM and More

  • CSR devices now supported in fwupd
    The BlueCore CSR chips are used everywhere. If you have a “wireless” speaker or headphones that uses Bluetooth there is a high probability that it’s using a CSR chip inside. This makes the addition of CSR support into fwupd a big deal to access a lot of vendors. It’s a lot easier to say “just upload firmware” rather than “you have to write code” so I think it’s useful to have done this work.
  • Skylake Server Scheduler Model Updated In LLVM 6.0 Along With Other Intel CPU Updates
  • Most Software Code Will Be Written By Machines By 2040, Researchers Predict
    Imagine a scenario where a programmer needs to follow a couple of tried and tested procedures to write code that becomes a part of a bigger program that needs some insightful contribution from another programmer. So, is the first programmer really needed? Can’t we find a robotic replacement for the same? In the past, GitHub CEO had already made a prediction which says that future of coding is no coding at all. A similar speculation has been made by the researchers at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Tennessee, who have said that machines will write most of their own code by 2040.
  • Hazelcast joins Eclipse, JCache is key focal point
    Open source In-Memory Data Grid (IMDG) company Hazelcast has joined the Eclipse Foundation – and it has done so for a reason. Hazelcast’s primary focus will be on JCache the Eclipse MicroProfile and EE4J. In particular, Hazelcast will be collaborating with members to popularize JCache, a Java Specification Request (JSR-107). So what place does JCache fill in the universe then?

  • Linux Release Roundup: VLC, Mesa, Audacity + More
