Top Ten Steam for Linux Best-Selling List – Rust Is the King

Filed under
Gaming

The Steam for Linux platform has received a few new games in the past week, and the top selling chart has somewhat changed, although some of the older games are still going strong.

Portal, the first game in the series, released way back in 2007 for the Windows platform along with Half-Life 2, has managed to slip into the tenth position, mostly because of its 75% discount.

More Steam Linux Tests/Benchmarks Might Be Coming

Filed under
Graphics/Benchmarks
Gaming

The good news now is that I've heard from a Valve Linux developer that additions to the Steam API will finally allow us to at least record universally a build revision/number for each game... Up to now it's been rather hard to tell if two separate copies of a Steam game being benchmarked were actually the same version (and thus comparable) or not since there wasn't an expressed build number across the board of all Steam games. With the latest Steam API work, it looks like we finally have that ability to record a build number for Steam games to make sure the same version of a game is being benchmarked.

Tabletop Simulator now on Steam Early Access

Filed under
Gaming

Tabletop Simulator, the very uncommon physics sandbox game that deals with the accurate simulation of a table top, is now available on Steam Early Access. The game has been creating quite a few ripples ever since its announcement. The game started its journey on Kickstarter which it quite successfully completed and is now headed for a full release on Steam.

The game is basically a sandbox with the sole purpose of simulating all kinds of possible table top physics. Now the interesting part of the game is that it is kind of a blank table top over which users can put up any game that they fancy. Once set, the game can be played just like in the real world moving around the pieces as if on a real world. But the interesting part is that, just like in the real world, should you decide, you can rage flip the table, throw the pieces at your opponent or just push the table over!

Ubisoft's Watch Dogs Might Get a Linux Version

Filed under

Gaming

One of the main problems Linux is facing as a gaming platform is the absence of support from any major publisher, but that is about to change. It seems that we might get a Linux version of Watch Dogs on Linux.

Ubisoft is certainly one of the biggest publishers out there. The company is responsible for a number of very important franchises and it does most of the work in-house, be it some Tom Clancy game or the next Assassin's Creed.

To be fair, there already are some publishers that have shown their support for the game, and 2K is probably the biggest one of them. The newly-announced Civilization Beyond Earth will be arriving on Linux, although the port is being handled Aspyr Media, which is not exactly ideal.
