For 72 hours Humble Store are giving away DiRT Rally (has Linux support - ported by Feral Interactive) during their big end of Summer sale.

Since there's a big sale, there's obviously a lot of games discounted too. Far too many to list overall but as always I will give you a few quick picks to get you going:

Grab your free copy of DiRT Rally here. The free game promotion ends on September 1st at 5PM UTC. As for the Humble Store end of Summer sale, that ends on September 12th at 5PM UTC.

Whilst you're here, just a note that Devolver Digital are also doing a big celebratory sale over on Steam, with some quality Linux games discounted there too.

Not enough for you? Okay, well, Two Point Hospital is free to play for the next few days too with 50% off on Steam as well. They've just released the Close Encounters DLC too, so this is to help pull a few people in who might have been on the fence.

KohlyKohlHow does this free promotion work? Will Feral receive anything from this?

I doubt it since no money is changing hands for the keys and the deal will likely of been made with codemasters but a question to ask fereal perhaps

Thank you Grammar nazi i missed you

Honestly there are better ways to express your displeasure with his unsolicited advice; "Thank you clippy" seems a good deal more on point, and a lot more insulting. ;)

Why insult somebody that helps you? People should know the difference between "of" and "have." They aren't interchangable. Why are people so allergic to that?

I agree with you, but I think "Clippy" would have been a nice one. (He even got a full name in the German version, "Karl Klammer". *moan*)

They can't give away Feral's work for free, so somehow, money must change hands. I wonder if the amount depends on the number of keys handed out.

Can anyone confirm that Dirt 4 multiplayer works cross platform with Windows? I had a quick Google and could find nothing specific.

Why do people like you feel the need to correct other peoples Grammar and/or spelling? To me personally, it's pig-ignorant. English is used across the internet as most people use it so it's easier for everyone. It may not be the first language of the person you are correcting. It could have been auto-translated. I use Grammarly to help me with my blog and it gives OF and HAVE as being fine in the sentence. What you added to this thread (much like this) added nothing. I think there should be a three strikes and you're out approach to comments like yours.

SkullyGrab Dirt rally and join our long running gaming on linux tournament here https://www.gamingonlinux.com/forum/topic/3999 All are welcome. Doesn't matter how good you are, just have fun! PM me if you have questions.
Unfortunately it’s hard to have fun when restarts are not allowed and a single mistake in the first race can ruin the whole event .

Only a native English speaker can confuse "of" and "have" because they are completely unrelated words; the only thing they have in common if that some people pronounce them the same way I think. It’s not a grammar mistake actually. As a non-native speaker it was not obvious at all what the intended meaning was. I prefer when people use words that make sense.

"Would of" definitely does sound similar to the contraction "would've". But yeah, it seems like a common mistake among native speakers only.

To potentially improve it?

I wonder how hard it seems to be to simply ignore such a correction if one doesn't care to be corrected.

Because I want to help and want others to be correct. It really seems like some people are wrong on purpose when they lash out at people that correct them. What's the harm? It's no insult or anything. It's a correction. Don't you want to get things right?

And what does it matter if it's their first language or not? It's not my first language either and I made (maybe still make) silly mistakes, because I'm still learning. I'm eager to get things right.

And STRIKING somebody for HELPING? Wow. You know, Liam has a function on this side to send in corrections, because he wants his articles to be free of typos. Does he lash out at people for helping him? No. He sends out a "thanks!" more often than not, even though it's completely unnecessary.
