Hate Mail

Steam News :


  • Now all we need is Alien Swarm to be ported and we’ll have the whole back catalogue under linux!

  • I must be the only person in existence that gives FK all about CS GO

  • Oh, all you fkrs who said “If CS:GO comes to Linux I’ll ditch Windows” need to find a new game.

    • It’s the smoker’s excuse.   You just gotta cold turkey that sucker

  • Finally!

Hack ‘n’ Slash 1.0


Totally coming you guys

  • Before we start we need to make clear that donating to a crowdfunding campaign in no way guarantees jack and or shite.

  • That said, they only went 553% over the Indiegogo goal on on March 27, 2013. How do you expect their volunteer to deliver a #Linux  port in a timely manner /w so little coin?

  • Thanks to Eddward from Shatlrealm for dropping some knowledge in this thread as well

  • Honestly, I think Lab Zero is just hoping that all of the people who actually funded them with the intention of getting a linux port will just eventually give up, based on their silence regarding these matters.    Let’s not let that happen.

  • Slavery is, apparently, alive and well:

  • “We can’t pay people for it, there is no money available so it must be volunteer”

  • Right in the ear you mother, fuckers.

  • This thread is a comedy of errors and sheer stupidity


Costume Quest 2


HL2 coop?

  • It installs and runs.

  • I wanna try this

  • What happens when you include old ass libs with your game?

    • It doesn’t work on the open source drivers.

      • Ask for a refund

  • Had to navigate to steamapps/Synergy/bin and delete and for the game to launch.

  • Runs with no issue in Nvidia Land

  • It’s a wee buggy, but it plays exactly as you would expect half-life 2 with two players to work

  • Getting a server up and running is really fun.


DayZ OpenGL Linux port PAX Prime 2014 hint by Dean ‘Rocket’ Hall

  • So much Kiwi.   I’m having hardcore Liz Quilty flashbacks whilst listening to this



  • Now only available in 4:3

  • To be fair, LGC would totally sell out if Microsoft shoved two billion wet stinky in our faceholes

    • Welcome to Solaris Gamecast ..bitches!


Distance bugs


A knight that goes

  • yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeesssssssssssssssssssssss

  • Aw yeaaaah!


Humble 12

  • All Linux but a fine mix of shite don’t want + shite I already own

    • Its overwhelmingly shite I already own.   This bundle is pretty weaksauce

  • “Humble Indie Bundle 12 Entertainment System”

    • Dogs-Do-Not-Want-2.jpg

    • Vinyl, really?

  • So much for pay what you want.


Another zombie game


Wine development release 1.7.26

  • Lots and lots of bugfixes


This won’t do

  • Considering your four games are variations on overdone genres with hipster pixel goodness …not surprised.  

  • And the last time you released a game was in MARCH 2013!

  • Protip:  Don’t tell your customers that “This will not do” and this “is unacceptable”

  • Also, someone did the math based on the game’s revenue, and it turns out according to their sales figures, about 1% of the sales of this game were for linux, which reflects the current linux usage statistics on steam.   So apparently these guys don’t know how to math.


Something useful for a change

  • dvdrewinder.jpg

Randomly generated Barbarians

  • Does not make /w the working +

    • Sorted it by removing: …/lib_x86-64/

  • Much like Synergy, if you include old ass libs with your game shit ain’t gonna work!

  • Randomly generated Castlevania ripoff with muddier controls.

    • Does not recognize my controller regardless of xboxdrv state.

– Nooope

– Not sure if want

– Check it out

Game: Hack ‘n’ Slash (Thank DF for keys when this thing was in hella alpha)


Devel: Double Fine Productions


Price: $/€ 19.99 – 33% off (13.99) until Sept 16th.

Wazzat: Hack ‘n’ Slash is a puzzle action game about hacking — reprogram object properties, hijack global variables, hack creature behavior, and even rewrite the game’s code. The only way to win is not to play…by the rules!

Makes with the working


  • It’s DoubleFine, you know that shite is going to work  




Shiny / Sounds




  • Walking animation while going diagonally is missing

    • It’s a bit jarring just seeing your character moonwalking all over the place.

  • It may be a bit nitpicky, but that’s quite literally the only graphical issue I could safely say was not a part of the experience.




  • You didn’t map inventory to the controller organ, Brad.

  • I was a full arn in before I discovered the fkn thing existed.

  • Outside of that everything worked with the Xclone.


  • Venn, you silly bitch


  • Everything was mapped to the controller for me.

    • Inventory was set to the Select button.




  • I really like how this game takes the “figure it out yourself, FKR!” approach.

  • That said, 1.5 arns in I’m board.

  • It’s debugging, the game.

  • Who is the target audience? Kids? Devels? Nutters?


  • The game has a very cool concept

  • The puzzles do make themselves immediately apparent though

  • I really like the hackability aspect


  • The puzzles aren’t exactly hard.

  • They just don’t tell you a damn thing about them and most of them are more of a chore than puzzle.

    • I’m looking at you Warden!

      • *grumble* having to change your name *grumble*


Final –

Hate Mail:

Why I play games on Linux



  • The lolita in a bra is totally just a coincidence!

  • That’s like saying a furry convention is only about dressing up as animals.



  • I ask myself that question far too often.   Why is Pedro breathing.

    • Because no other man has you thinking so much about him!

  • I have actually noticed that myself, but it would seem I’m just too giddy. (Which may or may not be caused by all the cocaine)

    • And the mouthbreathing
