  • Linux gaming is much healthier than Steam's Hardware Survey implies

    How many Linux gamers are there? It’s tough to say. We don’t even know how many Linux users there are in general. Valve’s Steam Hardware Survey supposedly sheds light on the OS breakdown among gamers, and it appears to show Linux use declining. But Valve’s Steam Hardware Survey is misleading, obscuring the fact that Linux gaming is healthier than ever.

  • The newest Worms game Worms W.M.D is confirmed to be coming to Linux

    Team17 really are getting more Linux friendly, and the latest game in the Worms series title 'Worms W.M.D' will be heading to Linux at release.

  • PAYDAY 2 now available on SteamOS & Linux, free to try for a few days

    The co-op shooter PAYDAY 2 is now officially available on SteamOS & Linux, yet another popular game!

    I’ve been waiting on this one as I am keen to play it to see what the fuss is all about. Being the bad guy is always more interesting than being forced to be the hero of everything most of the time.

  • PAYDAY 2 Released For Linux, SteamOS Gamers

    As some more exciting news to Linux gamers besides NVIDIA releasing a Wayland/Mir-supportive driver and mainline Vulkan support is the release of PAYDAY 2 for Linux.

    PAYDAY 2 is self-described as "an action-packed, four-player co-op shooter that once again lets gamers don the masks of the original PAYDAY crew - Dallas, Hoxton, Wolf and Chains - as they descend on Washington DC for an epic crime spree."

  • Looks like the F1 2015 Linux private beta was left open for the free weekend

    There will likely be a few embarrassed developers about this, but it looks like the private beta for the Linux port of F1 2015 has been left open during the free weekend. Is this an oversight, or a sneaky marketing decision? Who knows. It certainly looks like it is coming now though, rather than being rumours and speculation from SteamDB history.

  • Atomic Game Engine now open source, new games out for Linux, and more gaming news

    Hello, open gaming fans! In this week's edition, we take a look at Ink scripting language and Atomic Game Engine going open source, GameWorks SDK 3.1 released by NVIDIA, and new games out for Linux.

  • The Three Kinds of Linux Gamers

    Following the tracker we started back in Q2 2015, here’s the latest analysed data of the survey that ran back in November-December 2015 [ Most answers have come from r/linux and r/linux_gaming, so this will certainly not be representative of the Linux community as a whole – previous warnings regarding the data quality are still valid ]. This time we will explore the data a little further and look for some particular profiles of Linux gamers that emerge from this dataset. But before we go there, let’s go through a number of general observations.

  • Stardew Valley developer says Linux is a top priority, woohoo

  • Vulkan Code Begins Appearing For Unreal Engine 4
  • GOL SteamOS & Linux Survey results for February

    Here are the latest results from the monthly GOL survey. Wait, you already did February? Previously we were showing the results as the month we presented results, which was wrong (last months posted was amended).

    Since the questions you answer are for the month before, going forward I will name the correct month in the article title that the results correlate to. So, I'm announcing these in March (and previously we would say "survey results for March"), but the questions were all about February, hope that makes sense. If it doesn't let me know.

  • See how well SteamOS can run Arma 3 against Windows in this new video

    Pretty great performance there. It's really pleasing to see that Virtual Programming's eON wrapper technology mature to this state for some.

  • ScummVM, update with a bang

    By ending a wait that lasted almost two years, the developers of ScummVM announced the arrival of a new version for the virtual machine preferred by graphic adventure fans: also known as “Lost with Sherlock”, ScummVM 1.8.0 is hailed as one of the most hefty releases ever prepared by the team with the addition of many games and game engines, the substantial update of graphics and sound sub-systems and the availability of new conversions for minor platforms.

Nvidia Working On A Full-Blown Linux Distribution for Gamers — But Why?

Filed under
Linux
Gaming

Nvidia already has its Tegra-powered SHIELD TV and offers a variety of games over their cloud/streaming “GeForce NOW” service. So it’s highly unlikely that this full-blown Linux distribution, codenamed “NLINUX,” would be aimed at the SHIELD TV. Otherwise, the Tegra X1 would run into performance issues, and this would even risk cannibalizing the monthly subscription revenue off GeForce NOW.

Tablet review: BQ Aquaris M10 Ubuntu Edition

The Aquaris M10 is very much a first attempt for BQ and you would expect future iterations to have some significant improvements. It’s also hard to find compelling reasons why iOS or Android fans would want to switch over to an Ubuntu tablet, but those familiar with the operating system should be excited to finally have their needs met in the tablet market. One positive factor is that switching between tablet and desktop mode works very well for the most part, so can definitely fulfill professional needs as much as casual ones. This could be a viable option for someone who wants that flexibility and isn’t too fussed about some of the more superficial features. Read more
