Portals, everywhere. Trans-warp steaming is a thing, and something about dragons. Then we throw the chairs at Portal 2. All this, plus your hate mail.

Steaming Bridges

  • Rough idea is that it allows you to launch Wine steam games from the linux client without needing to switch

  • Requires you to compile a DLL in windows in order for this to work

  • Could potentially get you banned in games using VAC

  • Oh Redwood, that’s my GPU’s family!

  • Okay, but I already have the second gen (aka Madison) with 1GB GDDR3. So it won’t help very much.

  • Granted… along with all other improvements in Mesa 10, this is more than welcome. Now hurry the fuck up!

  • Can’t have anti-aliasing, but that’s because of Mesa 9.2.

FUN?

V-

P-

  • Is it fun? Yes! Is it as fun the first one was? Personally, I don’t think so.

  • Portal, the first one, is a puzzle game with a completely optional story. You could play through the entire game without paying the slightest of heed to whatever GladOS was spouting.

  • Portal 2 on the other hand is a narrative driven game with puzzle sections. It’s also pretty obvious the puzzle and story progression sections are separate things. Something which I feel breaks my immersion a little too often.

  • From a technical point of view, Portal 2 (even in its Beta state) works better in Linux than Portal 1. Which, effectively, makes Portal 2 more fun to play than the first. Unfortunately, it’s not enough to get the much coveted fourth chair.
