Leftovers: Gaming

  • 5 Months After Migrating Servers, Linux Game Publishing Remains Knocked Out
    Five months ago today was when LGP was planning a server migration with minimal downtime, while to this day they've yet to return.
  • Neverending Nightmares Released For Linux
    Neverending Nightmares is a black and white psychological horror that looks pretty awesome. There are moments of colour for things like blood, but it's mostly black and white. The game was funded on Kickstarter last year and hit a tidy $100K, so it's pleasing to see another crowdfunded game have a full release.
  • Tesla Breaks The World! Released For Linux
    Tesla Breaks the World! A platformer that mixes puzzles, adventure and Nikola Tesla into a mixed bag of gameplay. The current reviews of the game are mixed, so it's one of those hit-or-miss platformers that you may or may not want to pickup. The current issues with the game seem to stem from the imprecise controlling of your character which is noted in multiple reviews.
  • Preview: Radeon Gallium3D Performance For CS:GO On Linux
    Following last week's release of Counter-Strike: Global Offensive for Linux I published many AMD/NVIDIA GPU benchmarks of CS:GO. Those initial results were done using the proprietary AMD and NVIDIA Linux graphics drivers while starting today will be the open-source graphics driver results for this highly popular Valve game.
  • Intel Haswell HD Graphics With CS:GO On Linux
    Like this morning's RadeonSI results, the Intel HD Graphics 4600 trial run was done with the current Ubuntu 14.10 development packages -- the Linux 3.16 stable kernel and Mesa 10.2.6, although Mesa 10.3 is in the process of landing. As said in the article as well, I will have Mesa 10.3/10.4 results out soon for the open-source Intel/Radeon/Nouveau graphics on Linux, among other Steam on Linux benchmark results.
  • Cosmochoria Released For Linux In Early Access, It's Fun
    Cosmochoria is a funny little game that puts you in the space-suit of little naked cartoon cosmonaut who jet packs around space. The game although it is in early access is very playable right now, and it's quite fun as well. The Linux version of the game seems to be well done as far as I can see with no immediate problems that I noticed at all, so it's great to see early access games come out that actually work reasonably well. That's a refreshing change of pace from other early access releases.
  • GOL Cast: Heavy Bombardment In Cannon Braw
  • GOL World Tour: Linux Gaming From Germany
    This instalment of the GOL World Tour visits Germany, differing from the last two in that it will focus on a country more established in the video game industry and that most people will know quite a bit about anyway. So to make it more interesting and less controversial, the History and Culture section has been replaced with some interesting facts.

12 Open Source CRM Options

"Why not get the open source software that you plan to use for free, and then use the money that you would otherwise have spent on proprietary license fees to modify the open source software to meet your needs more closely?" he asks. "Why pay for software that is the same for all users when you can pay to have something that is unique?" Read more
