  • Control a scared little alien in 'Scary Humans', now on Linux

    Scary Humans [Steam, Official Site] is a small and difficult survival game where you are constantly being chased by those pesky Humans. Is it worth your bucks?

  • 'CAYNE', a free isometric horror game from the makers of 'STASIS' will support Linux

    The developers of 'STASIS' have been unable to bring the game officially to Linux, but their next game 'CAYNE' [Steam, Official Site] will have Linux support from Day-1. It will also be free, so that's really awesome considering how high-quality it looks.

  • Wine allowed me to re-live a gaming experience I had from when I was a child on Linux

    Wine [Official Site] is a rather heated topic at the best of times, but I think we can all agree what the Wine developers have been able to achieve is nothing short of extraordinary. Wine enabled me to re-live an experience I had with a game as a child, and I felt the need to share it.

    I'm never one to advocate the use of Wine really, in fact, in the past I have been rather against it. My tune changed and cooled down a lot during the years I've been running GOL, as it really is such an awesome bit of software I don't think anyone should turn their nose up at it.

    I should state for the record that I don't particularly think it's a great idea to use it for new games, since there's always a chance they could come to Linux natively, but when it comes down to either using Windows, or using Wine on Linux. The answer should be obvious really, Wine it is. Not everyone is willing to give up certain Windows games they love, and I don't think we should speak out against anyone who does. It brings them a step closer to being a fully-native Linux gamer, so that's awesome really isn't it? A Windows user coming to Linux, using Wine and possibly buying future native Linux games further growing us as a platform can only be a great thing.

  • GOG Connect has new games for you to grab from Steam for free if you already own them

Gaming

On Nov. 11 Nintendo is set to launch the NES Classic Edition. This tiny console ships with 30 NES games preloaded, an NES controller just like the original, and the ability to output at 1080p complete with a number of screen filters.

On the outside there's nothing too surprising—it's just a tiny NES. However, on the inside is a surprisingly powerful single-board computer that's running Linux.

  • Deus Ex: Mankind Divided Linux Version Released
  • Deus Ex: Mankind Divided Arrives on Linux Without AMD GPU Support

    Deus Ex: Mankind Divided is now available for Linux computers, port developer Feral Interactive has announced. The Linux port comes a little over 2 months after the game’s original release for Windows PC, PS4 and Xbox One. A Mac port is also under development, as was revealed back in September, but there is no word on when it will be released.

  • Smach Z: Finally Funded. Now What ?

    This is a like a long lasting drama. Some guys wanted to make a handheld and started making promises without having a prototype. It showed and they had to back down after a first disaster Kickstarter campaign. In the meantime, they secured some cash from investors, managed to be at the GamesCom 2016 with a prototype, and they have just relaunched their Kickstarter campaign with success – at the time of writing they already achieved their funding goal of 250k Euros, well ahead of the deadline. Not everyone gets second chances but I think they have learned from their mistakes and have come back with something to show that is more tangible than before.

  • Deus Ex: Mankind Divided Released for Linux & SteamOS, AMD GPUs Aren't Supported

    The moment you've all been waiting for is here, the UK-based video game publisher Feral Interactive has just made the big announcement today, November 3, 2016, for the launch of the Deus Ex: Mankind Divided video game on Steam for Linux, and SteamOS.

    Exactly two weeks ago, the guys behind Feral Interactive teased the Linux gaming community with yet another AAA title, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, after giving us a unique chance of playing the excellent Mad Max open world action-adventure video game just a day before announcing the Deus Ex: Mankind Divided Linux port.

  • Deus Ex Linux Requirements Announced, Only NVIDIA GPUs Supported

    Feral Interactive has published the system requirements for Deus Ex: Mankind Divided. As usual, it's the GPU/driver requirements that are always most interesting.

  • Deus Ex: Mankind Divided released for Linux, port report and review

    I thought the recent port of Mad Max to Linux was our highlight of the year, but Deus Ex: Mankind Divided is a whole ‘nother level of fun.

    I have to say, I’m damn impressed at not only how many games Feral Interactive have ported this year, but also at the fact that Deus Ex: Mankind Divided came to Linux so soon after the original Windows release! Not quite the day-1 releases we need, but damn close.

  • Deus Ex: Mankind Divided Linux system requirements revealed, Nvidia only for now

    With the Deus Ex: Mankind Divided release happening tomorrow, Feral Interactive have released the system requirements. It will need a pretty decent rig.

    It is a heavy game, I've seen plenty of reports about the Windows version requiring a beefy PC to play it reasonably well, so this isn't surprising.

  • Steam Client Linux Beta Has A Fix For ZFS

    Valve released a Steam client beta for Halloween 2016, but without any apparent spooks.

    The announcement details appear to be revised from when I first looked at the 31 October update for Linux users as originally mentioned some other changes while now for Linux users does note just a fix for ZFS users.

  • V3D DRM Driver Steps Towards Mainline Kernel, Renamed From VC5
    The Broadcom VC5 driver stack is being renamed to V3D and developer Eric Anholt is looking at merging it into the mainline Linux kernel. The VC5 DRM/KMS and Mesa code has been for supporting the next-generation Broadcom VideoCore 5 graphics hardware that's only now beginning to appear in some devices, well, it seems one device so far. Though as I pointed out a few months back, there's already "VC6" activity going on too as the apparent successor to VC5 already being in development.
