Away of Give #3





Colour key: Venn Jordan Pedro


Don’t be a d-bag

  • Bro, you started off with a valid question but lost me when you couldn’t be bothered to learn some CLI

  • Daww is big bad GLC to complex for your little brain organ?

  • So you’re going back to Windows? Sounds good.

  • CLI is too difficult for this average ARCH! user

Away of GIVE #3 Winnars – Our completely unbiased selection (you fkrs pick)

1. Yannath, because why the hell not

2. Sore_Loser (aka Thom Dushane) cuz he managed to convince someone that he was persuasive.

Steam News :

Portal out of beta (HL3 CONFIRMED!!11!)

  • SHOCKED Larabel didn’t use this headline.

  • Portal 1 + Half Life 2 = HL3 CONFIRMED AS LINUX EXCLUSIVE!


Counter-Strike: Source, Day of Defeat: Source and Half-Life 2: Deathmatch Updates Released

  • HL2, Deathmatch, and Lost Coast no longer beta.

  • Updated the Linux version

    • Fixed triggers never registering as “released” on certain game controllers

    • Fixed clipboard issues on some window managers, most notably KDE

    • Fixed a bug where the map list would be reversed

    • Made loading custom fonts for third party HUDs work on certain fonts

    • Improved performance and stability


Source SDK 2013 brings Linux support to mod developers

  • Black Mesa in 3.. 2..

    • I’m throwing money at the screen!  WHY ISN’T ANYTHING HAPPENING!?!?!

  • Now get out there and make a DayZ clone in Source!


Cyborgmatt’s Dota 2 blog hinting at a near Linux release?

  • It does look like the MSN butterfly and DOTA is one of the big name games still to be released. Although, I’m actually looking forward  to playing Counter-Strike Global Offensive.

  • There are a lot of people who might switch to linux full time because of DOTA2


Leisure Suit Larry in the Land of the Lounge Lizards: Reloaded

  • I’m pretty sure if it wasn’t for the promise of random nipple sightings, this game would have disappeared long ago!


Natural Selection Looking to come to Linus Linux

  • Linus reportedly angered and confused.

    • Damn you phone typing!

  • Looks a bit meh

  • Hey man, NS1 was awesome and I can’t wait to play this

  • It used to be t3h sh!t 5 or so months ago. Hadn’t heard of it in awhile though.


NVIDIA 319.32

  • Supports GeForce GTX 760 (really thinking about buying one)


AMD Overhauls Open-Source Linux Driver

  • DPM support (Dynamic Power Management) for r6xx-SI

  • Support for CIK (Sea Islands): modesetting, 3D, compute, UVD

  • ASPM support for R6xx-SI

  • It’s basically added support for the Radeon 8000 series. No noticeable improvements for other hardware yet.

  • Don’t get me wrong, this is a good thing. To be honest I just wish the OSS drivers could surpass the prop. ones in 3D performance. I’d drop fglrx so fast there’d be a virtual crater where it was lodged.


Bundle of Shanks

  • I for one shall not complain about low Linux sales on this one. Everyone has these games.

    • Still have the highest average though.

  • Are not impress


StarMade – minecraft inspired 3D sandbox space shooter.

  • Something about the game isn’t selling it for me.

  • And we’re getting closer and closer to Mojang’s 0x10c.

  • Minecraft with money in space.    Spaaaaaaaaaaaace


Dead Squared (thank @gustavo for pointing this out)

  • In name of all that isn’t holy, drop the Minecraftian graphics already!!

  • If they’d decided to go with a grittier/more realistic look, I’d be all over this.


First playable In Between demo

  • A puzzle platformer with which I didn’t go “Meh” 2 minutes in… Nice!

  • Also, I’m pretty sure I’ve heard those BGM tunes before.

  • These gravity manipulating platformers seem to be pretty common nowadays


OZombie (kickstarter)

  • Looks like they couldn’t get the rights to Alice.

  • American McGee, hellbent on making children’s tales a wee bit more interesting.

  • The name made me think this was going to be an adaptation of Osombie

    • Considering that imdb rating and what I’ve heard about the movie, I’m glad it isn’t.

  • Yeah, technically you use the gerbil to control the game but I’m not fooled for a second. It’s READING MY MIND! There is no other way the horse brushing could be so accurate.




  • Controls?! Who needs controls when it looks so pretty.




  • This is the type of game that shows up once in a generation. FSM has truly blessed us with this.




  • Please master, I’ve been a good boy. I’ve played this goddamn thing. Please, no more.

  • Whenever it crashed it would nix all progress since the last save. After having to start from scratch 3 times I just rage quit.
