Steam News :


  • Why are we using Flash in 2015?
  • Same reason they use rm -rf $VARIABLE/* in shell scripts?
  • The Download stats says Europe downloads a lot more than the US
    • Yet the graphic doesn’t seem to reflect that.
      • Looks like they fixed it!


Shadow Warrior Mac and Linux Testing

  • Additional Notes: The will of a true ninja warrior and an appreciation of Wang jokes.
  • Looks like it could be a decently fun FPS.    Hopefully they’ll make with the keys once the linux version drops


Dying Light



  • The sting from this was seeing Road Redemption in the “more like this” section.
  • I’m not sure ubuntu 10.12 is a thing.  Ubuntu from a parallel universe?


InMind VR

  • It’s the occulus version of Microcosm!   But with no trippy Rick Wakeman synthesizer solos
  • It’s cheap as free though, so if you have Rift, have at.
  • It looks like neat sauce but not  fan of wearing shite on my head organ.



  • Requires the elusive 1500 processor
  • That looks EXACTLY as I remember Caesar III looking like
  • Early access free to play.   Way to do it right.
  • It doesn’t work very well, and by that I mean it’s barely even playable.
  • I didn’t have anyone living in the city yet and 2 of the vacant spots just caught fire.
  • When my population reached 10 people, half of them turned into Shadow citizens.
  • Tried several times to change resolution, game threw a buggy dialog message saying I needed to restart.
    • Needless to say it didn’t work.
  • Good thing it’s free!


Survivor Squad

  • Door Kickers meets Left4Dead and DayZ, with rogue-like elements.
  • I’m getting some dead sky flashbacks


960 announced

  • *looks at 980* That’s adorable!
  • All things considered, it fits the niche left between the 750TI and the 970.
    • Because there is still a $200 difference between those two.
  • I’m interested to see what the 950 looks like.
  • But I wonder…


Something about the 970 … I forget


WINE 1.7.35

  • Beginnings of OpenGL core profile support
  • DirectWire support for glyph placement
  • More WebM things
  • And another 56 bugfixes.
    • Including one that now let’s you download games in Origin.
      • Why would you want to do that, I have no clue. But you can, now!

I sense a disturbance…

  • Well, not really.   This is just a Dosbox port.
  • That said, it’s kind of funny that all these abandoned star wars games are finding new homes on linux systems
  • GOG really needs to step up and release a Desura/Steam like client.


Still witching


John Romero’s Worst Game is now open sauce

  • You still need the old game assets.    I wonder though, who actually kept this turd?
  • Also includes a freebsd build for your convenience
  • You know, I never actually played this game.    In fact growing up I had never heard of it.


Open-Sourced SS13

  • Supposedly an MMO for something awful goons
  • Basically, the dev’s can maintain the project no-mo so they’re booting it to the community
  • And we all know how well that turns out *cough*naturalselection2*cough*

For it is not our wisdom but the wisdom of the only true review metric. Hallowed are the Chairs.

Makes with the working


  • Some days I wonder why I still keep a swap partition.
  • Thursday was not that day.


  • This thing is a giant memory leak


  • There is a memory leak, certain levels just outright crash the game


Shiny / Sounds


  • The sounds are complete rubbish



  • The sound crackles and pops like crazy
  • The bike sounds like someone recorded the engine noise with their cellphone
  • Graphics are about as stock as stock Unity graphics get






  • Fucking shitty android ports





  • This game gave me cancer


  • It’s so bad, at one point I lost my shit and just started laughing maniacally


Final –CHAIR

Hate Mail:


  • The profile does change, but I couldn’t get it to send out the notification either through the OSD or Audio.
  • I am using KDE and pulseaudio


Big brains

  • We’ve gone over this at length.   Your fault for not paying attention
  • Brad is a way of life …..Brad
