  • At best this an unofficial port stealing NADEO IP. L.G.C. does not condone game piracy.

  • Worst? Well, best I co.uld tell it tries to connect to a .pl server and asks you to login. Login to what?

  • This “hack” is a Unity port so the “web” version would use the unity player. There would be no need to log into a Facebook app.

  • Yeah it’s not a “Linux” port but we do cover Android bundles.

  • FKR even works with my old ARCHOS G9

  • Works on my TF300T.

  • The game is using Nadeo’s assets, whether it is official or not will come to light soon enough.

    • In form of a Takedown notice or lack thereof.

  • Holy shit, I remember playing this in high school.  Talk about a blast from the past

  • Never knew my brother had a game named after him.

 

Could happen?

http://www.moddb.com/mods/operation-black-mesa/news/progress-update85

  • Well, I’m keeping my fingers crossed

  • I wouldn’t hold my breath, cross my fingers or do any sort of physically straining activity while waiting for this.

  • I remember how long the original Black Mesa Source mod took.

  • Here’s a twitter screenshot to illustrate my point: http://i.imgur.com/0JrRYx2.png

 

DOTA2 no longer in beta

  • Keyboard+gerbil is playable until you get the Stike Suit.

Humble Bundle weekly Crap # 3.1415926535

https://www.humblebundle.com/weekly

  • Only one game that everyone already owns?

  • And only if you pay more than the average

  • I wonder if this was what Desura foresaw happening when they decided to go their own way.

WTH happened to Ubuntu Vibes? (no update since April 14)

http://www.ubuntuvibes.com/

  • I’ve sent an e-mail, no reply as of yet.

  • I’m honestly curious since we had nothing to do with it.. For once

 

Arx Libertatis v1.1

http://arx-libertatis.org/releases/1.1

  • It works and with no more frame-rate drop during the cutscenes! Wooohooo.

  • Time to beat this!

  • I really dig these engine ports.  Plays alright as well.

 

Operation Smash

http://www.desura.com/games/operation-smash

  • Whar demo? I ain’t payin’ €6 for a retro-platformer if I can’t try it first.

 

Direct3D 9 Support Released For Linux ..kinda

http://lists.freedesktop.org/archives/mesa-dev/2013-July/041900.html

  • This makes most open-source 3d drivers speak Direct3D natively, on par with OpenGL

  • And suddenly my will to drop fglrx altogether has increased tenfold.

  • RPMFusion or Fedora peeps should totally make this available through a yum install.

  • Very cool stuff.   Shame nouveau is a bit shit (But thats no fault of the devs)

http://www.indiegamemag.com/sir-you-are-being-hunted-alpha-opens-august-19-to-all-pre-orders-and-kickstarter-backers/

  • The most dangerous prey of all….MAN!

  • It was looking very good, until I read the blog post about buildings not being enterable. 2001 called, they don’t want their limitations back.

Shiny / Sounds

V-

  • Cock tease. Intro graphics looked hella sweet but the actual game looks like something from 1996.

  • Sounds? Yeah, I guess it had sounds.

J-

  • Was Pretty choppy on ze steambox

  • Looks a bit like butt to be honest.

P-

  • The graphics and sounds work. Of course, they would have worked a lot better if it was in first person.

  • The Linux world needs a Thief: Deadly Shadows type game. Hell, I’d be happy with Dark Messiah of Might and Magic at this point. Ubisoft! Get on it!

  • Moving from first to third person is absolute shit.

  • MOVEMENTISTHEKEYMECHANICOFTHEGAME!

  • A very good point.  A lot of what draws people to linux is that it runs very well on less than stellar hardware.   Lots of people are interested in gaming on linux and a lot of them don’t have gobs of money for gigantic stupid rigs like Venn and myself

    • ^ this!

  • Your compassion for the little people is.. sickening

 

How about some WINE in your steam  

https://linuxgamecast.com/discussions-2/#/discussion/285/why-doesnt-steam-offer-the-ability-to-launch-windows-games-with-wine

  • what about limiting platinum rated games to be downloaded? But nothing else.

  • Works outhabox? Here, install it! It needs hacks? Sorry!

  • We did experiment with some tickle me Venn prototypes.   We lost one of them and apparently it caused an issue trying to import a cuban missile into north korea

    • Also, put me down for 5 “fuck you pedro” shirts

  • The “whatever the hell elks” shirt should have demonic deer on the front http://i.imgur.com/XTalRy7.jpg – kudos to AngryUnit for the drawing.
