Gaming

terminally-incoherent.com: You are an ordinary guy, you have no weapons and your only recourse when monsters show up is to run away and hide. I had this mental image of your character cowering behind an upturned table while an unseen monster is rummaging through the room, smashing doors, throwing objects up in the air and making scary noises. Amnesia is that game!

New Google Nexus Leak Confirms 192-Core, 64-bit Apple Rival

Last September Apple AAPL +0.16% caused a stir when it announced iOS 7 and the accompanying iPhone 5S would support 64-bit operation. The move to this much faster architecture gave it the jump on 32-bit rivals Android and Windows Phone and brought Apple’s products in-line with desktop and laptop-class computing. But now Android has caught up and may well go speeding past. No less than three devices lead the charge: a teaser, a leak and an official announcement. Interestingly all come from HTC and the one which will attain by far the most headlines is the new Google ‘Nexus 9’ tablet – also dubbed the ‘Nexus X’ – which will do battle head-on with the iPad mini .

20-Way Radeon Comparison With Open-Source Graphics For Steam On Linux Gaming

When it comes to Linux gamers wanting a discrete graphics card backed by open-source drivers, the only solution right now to truly recommend for those serious about performance and making use of the hardware is really AMD Radeon graphics. While Nouveau has been making much progress, until re-clocking and other issues are worked out the performance can be unbearably slow depending upon the particular graphics processor or run into other problems.

In the mean time, I'm going to assume a participation similar to Alpha-2 and configure cron, propose-migration and the tracker accordingly, then build a first candidate for each of your flavours," wrote Canonical's Stéphane Graber.

Optimize your Linux rig for top-notch writing

I'm a big fan of Scott Nesbitt's writing, which has a technological bent, but is usually more about working effectively, rather than how tools can make you effective, which is a key distinction. Scott's setup reflects his focus on production rather than tweaking. He has his work tools and everything else is pretty much white noise—which is why LXDE/Lubuntu probably makes a lot of sense for his workflow. It's simple and it stays out of his way. Scott also gets bonus points for moving his family to Linux. That's a tough move, but given that his wife stole his ZaReason laptop, the conversion seems to have taken. Read more
