Steam Autumn Sale 2013

http://store.steampowered.com/?Ineedsometeaandbiscuitsandkittens

  • New sales every day (50%-75% off)

  • New flash sales every 8 hours (75%-90% off)

  • Wallet Murdering 101

 

Commercial Steam Machine looks like a small refrigerator

http://www.engadget.com/2013/11/25/commercial-steambox-prototype

  • “And, while the company wouldn’t tell us about the boxes’ internals, it did confirm that the hardware will run all Steam titles in 1080p resolution at 60fps.”

    • That is so fucking misleading!

  • AMD APU + R9 270 GPU… because Mantle! >.>

  • I’d like to see AMD finally cave and release a  PROPER Linux driver for once. I’m not holding my breath though.

  • $499? Oh, good luck /w that.

  • Like the Xi3 this is not a real Steam boxen.

  • IBuyPower, a name you can trust in computing

 

Almost 7 months since the first Linux Beta, Still Not Working

http://store.steampowered.com/news/?appids=248410

  • €28 for a game that barely works and only if it’s in the right mood, is way too much

  • I completely agree with the above but at least they are actively trying to unfuck it.

 

Distance Alpha 2316

http://refract.com/post/68145835540/distance-alpha-2316-changelog

  • The 2315 Released finally brought controller support to Linux.

  • The layout can only be described as cruel and unusual punishment.

 

Nuclear Dawn makes with the working (thank pizza hipster for pointing this out)

http://steamcommunity.com/app/17710/discussions/3/648811852606424192/

  • It’s not exactly optimized and hangs on close.

  • Playable

  • €3.05 during the Fall sale.

  • Still crashes for me.  


News:

TF2 FPS

http://lists.freedesktop.org/archives/mesa-dev/2013-November/049382.html

  • MOAR Gallium3D performance improvements

  • Basically, they’re sharing code from the r600 driver to the Southern Isles architecture to help get better performance for the Radeon 7k series.

  • Now it just needs OpenGL 3+ and better 3D performance.

 

Scraps Kickstarter

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/nition/scraps-customisable-vehicle-combat-for-windows-mac

  • Think KSP /w cars and guns

  • Multiplayer? Damn negro, that’s all you had to say

 

Minetest 0.4.8 released

http://minetest.net/

  • I suppose its worth a look if you demand your minecraft experience to be FLOSS

    • Or if you’re too cheap to pay for a minecraft account

 

PokerTH has a Linux version

http://pokerth.net/download.html

  • This just peaked my curiosity, since I didn’t know of any THold’em that worked natively under Linux.

  • It’s empty most of the time though

  • Its supposed to be a tribute to nintendo hard games of the past.   In that regard it accomplished what it set out to do.

  • Considering how many times you die, the music gets a bit too repetitive too soon.

  • Working OOTB on the XClone controller.

Hate Mail:

capture software?

http://slexy.org/view/s2M3Y7OFMI

  • Again, it’s capture HARDWARE with some special sauce.

 

Control

http://slexy.org/view/s2kiwAOStw

  • That’s good news for me, whenever the beta rolls around.
