For the GOG fans amongst the GamingOnLinux readership, there's another big DRM-free release available with METAL GEAR RISING: REVENGEANCE. Plus, another giveaway.

Available now on GOG with 40% off until July 11th: "The game seamlessly melds pure action and epic story-telling that surrounds Raiden – a child soldier transformed into a half-human, half-cyborg ninja who uses his High Frequency katana blade to cut through any thing that stands in his vengeful path!"

Ah, nice, this game has been on my Steam wish list for some time, though it seems it won't go lower than 5€. I'd need a deeper sale to buy it "just in case", as otherwise I'll just play my backlog meanwhile.

Other games in a similar situation before I decided to play them: Nier Automata, Bayonetta, Katamari Damacy. Others I keep an eye on: Vainquish, this one, and Subnautica.

It's a bit weird to me how some games never adjust their base asking price, even when they haven't been updated in 10-20 years (6 years here). Well, I guess inflation will eventually make them cheap enough.

Being released on GoG shows that they haven't forgotten about the game though, and I can justify a slightly higher asking price there.

Win-only. And I thought this was GOL. Time to leave....

I don't inherently disagree, but this isn't a new thing. A significant amount of articles for the last long while cover games only playable via Proton, or sometimes not playable with Proton at all. You only need to check the article tags to see a significant amount of articles for games that are Windows-only.

You're absolutely entitled to feel that way, I just want to illustrate that this isn't new by any stretch.

Either you're trolling, or you've been living under a rock for the past 3+ years.
