Aspyr Media Are Teasing A New Game, They Promise Many Penguin Smiles

Posted by , | Views: 35,502

Aspyr Media have been extremely busy it seems, as they have just sent off code to bring Civilization Beyond Earth up to the same patch level as Windows. The bigger news is they have been teasing a new port.

I know what it is (I’m allowed to say that, trust me I checked first!), and no amount of drowning me in rum or fattening me up with cake is going to make me break. You will love it though, and Aspyr’s commitment to our platform is something truly awesome.

There’s this particular post on reddit that will get a lot of Linux gamers wondering, and it’s where this teaser comes from:
Aspyr_BlairAgreed...been a little quiet lately. Mostly because its all hands on deck for one game...and I mean ALL HANDS.
Of course I will not be giving it away (wild speculation is too much fun), but lets just say its a game that has been asked for literally thousands of times. It's also personally one of my favorite games of all time.
I can promise there will be many penguin smiles out there.


I’ve requested Samsai to do a special live stream when it is released, so we can bask in his glory. Or watch his failure, either’s good.

Begin the guessing game, and join me in riding the hype train. Article taken from GamingOnLinux.com.

GTA5 would be INSANE if true, but I can't believe that. That'd already been official if true.

On top of my list is really any AAA of recent years that I don't already have in my library - unfortunately that's not many.

Maybe we should consider the Linux friendly (OpenGL) game engines and companies. Therefore, we can cross out the games from Zenimax/Bethesda, Blizzard and Rockstar. Then we are mainly left with Unreal Engine games. Regards.

Dishonored or Mortal Kombat X ?

Dishonored is published by Zenimax subsidiary Bethesda and developed by Zenimax subsidiary Arkane...

So, It's Mortal Kombat X?

subI don't care what game it is.

As long as they're not fixing that bloody BL2 port to run on a Phenom II + HD 7950 (and similar configs),
I won't buy any other game from them. At least give feedback on the matter. What's stopping you from fixing it? Maybe there is a good reason. But just assuming it's AMD's fault would be cheap.

I'm playing the original windows version which runs fantastic on the same system!

These companies make it difficult to completely switch to Linux.

It's nobody's fault, but the fix will require AMD's help. The ball is in their court now.

The good news? This title will have full GPU support across NVIDIA/AMD/Intel

Hopefully that Darksiders port, that we have been waiting forever for?? Possibly Darksiders 2 as well?

who knows. There are to many to hope for. Although GTA V would be a instant buy for me.

I hope it is GTA V!
Only going to buy it if its released for Linux ofc...

liberodarkHere the potential games that would come:
(...)
DiRT 3
Assetto Corsa
(...)

I don't think they will be releasing racing games (altough I would love them to, since I am a big fan of racing games). Aspyr-Blair has sometimes referred to Feral as the "racing games guys" when some users had mixed Aspyr's and Feral's game portfolio.
