Steam News :


  • took’em long enough!

  • On sale for 4 bucks on lauch day.   Yoink

  • Holy unoptimized Batman!

  • We’re talking first release of Serious Sam unoptimized

  • Aaaaand hella crashy

  • Doesn’t even start up for me.   Woo


Let’s talk about the “port”

  • It was “ported” by Virtual Programming (legendary for shite MAC ports)

  • It runs better /w WINE (WINE uses more than one fk mothering core)

  • If you are using the “b,b,b, but VALVe used ToGL” excuse (Direct3D to OpenGL abstraction layer) you know absolutly FK all. That’s a bytecode-level HLSL -> GLSL translator.

  • These guys: “possible to deliver a Windows-based game to these platforms without source code: an important factor where developer licensing may be restricted.”

  • Supporting this garbage is like pissing on 4A Games, Double Fine, etc.

  • Hell, 4A is porting 2033 but we will scream about that in a moment.

  • Yeah, it was on sale for 4 quid but you still got fucked, Brad. Yes you did! They just wore a wrapper.

  • And this clown of a devel

  • underthebuss.jpg

  •   ^ that is some all kinds of failings … I just want to slap him.


Metro 2033 Redux

  • As if 4A didn’t steal enough of my life away by porting Metro LL engine to Linux, now they want to redux the original 2033 in sweet tasty HD for my eye organs to eat?! yes please.  If this port turns out like their Last Light , thank my all mighty insurance company that my monitor is covered in case of freak wallet attacks.

  • shut_up_and_take_my_money_by_gbrsou-d79erhs.jpg

  • I’m kinda saving Metro LL for the home; about halfway in the game. That said, don’t they know vpltd offers Linux “ports”? Why bother doing it nati… oh, wait.

  • Yay prequels!

Gauntlet™ pre-orders

  • Totally doing a playas of it

  • This game will unlock in approximately 3 months, 3 weeks

In home Steaming (launch)

  • Still no linux to linux streaming.   Sadface

    • ^ Seriously. It’s neat but I don’t exactly have a Windows box laying about.

    •     ^ Ill be more excited on the cross platform properties when my neighbour get         his steambox built so I can play with it. Because I’m cheap like that.


The Punchening

  • Ported by friend of the show Flippity floppity floop

  • Local Co-op MEH!

  • An OpenGL ES-compatible renderer.

  • Port to SDL 2

  • Fun story. They ripped one of my B-reel videos for the Neverball Desura release. The CEO (at the time) Scott Reismanis contacted me directly worried that I would sue. I spent two days responding to his emails using nothing but Pulp Fiction quotes. As is tradition.  

  • It’s Aboot Freakin time eh.

  • Good ol’ fashoined open source click and kill everything type game
