A look at some incredible Linux gaming deals going on right now

Posted by , / 4174 views

I know I already pointed some out earlier this week, but the amount of Linux games on sale (and cheap) right now is insane.

The most insane deal right now is the Steam Link, which is a massive 90% off making it £3.99 before shipping. That's insane and makes me think they're getting rid of stock, either to make a new and improved version or to stop selling it. It's a bargain though!

The Steam Controller is also discounted by 33% and I still highly recommend it. It's one of my favourite bits of hardware in my home, to the point that I have two of them. Useful for more than just gaming too!

If you fancy supporting us a little extra, you can use our Fanatical affiliate link, which gives us a few pennies from each sale. You can also use the discount code "BLACKFRIDAY10" to get an extra 10% off. They have some awesome deals on like (affiliate links):

Steam is where there seriously juicy stuff is right now though, with thousands on sale. However, here's some favourites of mine going cheap:

Also, remember again we do have a Sales Page that's currently being worked on (BETA). I just recently added support for GBP and EUR currencies for Steam and Fanatical.

Finally, we also have our little Merch Store, go buy a cup or something. If you use the code "SALE2017" you get 15% off everything right now.

What have you picked up during sale season? Let everyone know you top choices not to be missed. I can only name a few, or I will be here all night.

I thoroughly enjoyed the first game years ago and I found this game to be equally as fun.

The mix of action, stealth and everything is great.

I liked it a lot, including the extra missions. I guess it has to do with expectations, this was the first DE game for me.

Grabbed the Arma3 base game from Steam (-66% off). Runs much better than expected for an unofficial port. Very cool!
I hope that the steam magic works and it counts as a Linux sell.

Full price maybe. This price it is absolutely worth it.

Because it's fantastic? Your mileage may vary of course.

I finally picked up SteamWorld Dig 2 and SteamWorld Heist for just under £15 the pair. Now to find time to play them!

brokeassbenAlso, why is Gandhi such an ass in this game? Declared war on me for no apparent reason.
In-joke for the series I'm guessing (haven't actually played VI myself yet); in (I think) the original Civilization all civs/leaders had a signed integer representing their aggression level. Gandhi/India had the lowest possible value, i.e., least aggressive. However, taking democracy as a government (available later in game) would lower your civ's aggression level, leading to Gandhi's aggression to wrap around to becoming the absolute most aggressive civ in the game, leading to very commonly seeing the memetic picture of Gandhi threatening "Our words are backed by nuclear weapons!" As a result, India's typically either had really high aggression or a particular love of nuclear weapons in every Civ game since.

I've been enjoying Pillars of Eternity so much recently (this years updates to the MESA radeon driver has made the game much more playable for me!) that I bought the White March Expansion pass which was about 40% off. Nice! Apparently there is not only new quests, but some additional gameplay updates, like dual classes and stuff.
