Winnars announced next week.

Colour Key: Venn Jordan Pedro

Steam News :


  • Please, oh please let it not suck…

  • Red Jordan need game badly

  • Will Definitely make for an interesting Playas series.   Now who is going to be number four?

  • I am getting some serious “Forced” flashbacks


Ku: Shroud of the Morrigan

  • Celt-Steam-Punk

  • Appears to be a diablo-y, golden-axe-y game.    The price seems right for four bucks.


The Witcher 2 (pending)

  • 18GB o_0

  • Encrypt all the things!

  • I hear it “works” minus a few show stoppers. No ETA

  • It shows up on the list, but still no executable.


March 19th batch of Greenlit Titles

  • 37 Linux titles

  • Wow… the only game that even remotely tickled my interest was Whispering Willows.

  • Just let it die, already!

    • NO!   We need to let as many crappy linux games into steam before we let this sucker die!

  • 8-Bit Commando? Really? REALLY?


Mein Luftkissenfahrzeug ist voller Aale

  • I might give this a whirl so that I can speak to Venn in terrible broken-ass German!

  • +1 for sharks with lasers strapped to their heads.


“Science” Girls

  • Saving the world…WITH SCIENCE!

    • …and tentacles

      • ^

  • 2009 game… I’m starting to agree with TotalBiscuit on the way Valve has opened the floodgates and let all the shit in.


Epic Games officially launches Unreal Engine 4 with incoming support for Linux

  • Between this and Cryengine (eat a bag Unity) I’m all

  • $19/mo, 5% royalty, full source

  • Collaboration software via github!

  • This smells like a unity killer!


Really AMD? You’re focused on that issue?

  • OoH!   They fixed that fucking VLC thing!   Something I actually give two shits about!

    • A bug which has been around since 2008? 2007?

  • Resolved Issues:

  • [394848] – Xorg crashed  playing AVI video file in VLC player or Parole player

  • [394705] – “Nexuiz – Demo3” Ubuntu performance lower than Redhat

  • [394704] – “Nexuiz – Demo3” Linux performance  lower than Windows

  • I wonder if they’ll ever acknowledge the Ogre 3D segfault with fglrx bug I posted over a year ago.


Mesa 10 lands on Fedora 20

  • Freakin’ finally! Skyrim on High settings with constant 60FPS here I come!

  • Metro Last Light starts, but the shader refuses to do its job meaning everything is lit up like the 4th of July!

  • Fallout 3 went from 30ish FPS on medium settings (no AA), to 60 on Ultra and 4xAA. Welcome to 2008, WINE players!


GOG going BeOS?

  • You know what I hate? Everyone else has already dropped their pants and bent over over the PROMISE of a Linux cock for games that already have ports.

  • Everyone is praising them over something they had stubbornly and repeatedly decided not to support. But hey, they may have Linux support by the end of the year! Better open that mouth or you’ll miss the money shot.

  • But…! Do you know what I don’t hate about this? Competition! Assuming GOG will try to make their Linux games have as much quality as their Windows counterparts, this is probably going to force Valve to step up their game and start curbing the amount of shit they’re letting into their store lately.

  • GOG can eat a bag but make /w the Steam keys and we shall call it even.

  • I like the comment at the bottom about packaging.   You can provide .deb and .rpm packages.  Shit aint that hard if you ‘re not building from source


OpenMW 0.29.0

  • Combat is implemented, as well as combat AI for creatures and blocking.

  • New AI world interaction scripts, letting NPCs open doors and what not.

  • You can now get STDs.

  • Load and Save game is almost good, still has some issues.

  • Known issue: Slaughterfish fly! Run for your goddamn life!

Devel: Astro Port

Engine: C++ ported with DxPortLib

Price: $5.99

Wazzat: GIGANTIC ARMY is a heartfelt homage to 16-bit era mech shooters such as Cybernator / Assault Suits Valken, Metal Warriors, and Front Mission: Gun Hazard

Makes with the working



  • If you’re on a laptop using Optimus, disable steam overlay



Shiny / Sounds









  • Sweet mother of Unresponsiveness!






  • Everything is sloooooooooooooooooooooow

  • Soooooooooooooo fuuuuuuuuuuuuucking slooooooooooooooooooooooooooow

  • I had more fun looking this game up on Steam Charts than actually playing it:


Final –

Hate Mail:

Puffy Controls

  • Back in 1993 there was a game called Doom that let you fire in one direction while moving in another direction and it did so using only one fire button.
