Humble 2K Bundle 2 has a few big Linux games for cheaps

Posted by , | Views: 15,430
The new Humble 2K Bundle 2 has a couple Linux games you may be interested in picking up for cheap, all good ones too.

Linux supported
Spec Ops: The Line - ported by VP
Sid Meier's Civilization V - ported by Aspyr Media
Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel - ported by Aspyr Media

You also get a massive 40% off XCOM 2 when you buy the bundle, so that makes it pretty damn worth it in my opinion.

I own all of them and like them all, so I think this is actually a pretty sweet bundle if there's a few you still need to own. Article taken from GamingOnLinux.com.

I know is not for Linux, but anyone of you ever played the Battleborn single player campaign? Is even remotely similar with what we have on Borderlands?

Tested the beta on PS4 myself and found it quite boring. Nothing like Borderlands to me.

OK, I wanted to make sure. I watched a bunch of gameplays and was not really impressed by what I saw.
Thanks.

I was very interested in Mafia II that should run great on wine but couldn't care less about nba2k16 and i already own CivV.
As for the top tier, Borderlands is on my wishlist, but I have absolutely no interest in Battleborn because I won't be able to play it soon (unless a native port coming or Wine d3dx11 improvements).
I will probably buy the 1€ tier next week unless they add something special

ps. great bundle from Humble Bundle after a good amount of not so interesting bundles

So that is 3 out of 10 games for Linux, 0 out of 10 DRM-free.

Quite 'humble' (aka meager) indeed (

Ok, I hear Spec-Ops: The Line has an amazing story, but "passable" gameplay.
As I _already know the story_ (every critic raving about it for years) is it worth getting?
I know it's only a dollar (I've already played The Pre-Sequel and I'm rubbish at Civ), but... it's my dollar.

Yeah, 2K aren't exactly known for DRM-free releases. I'm still waiting for Bioshock games to come out on GOG. Too bad, since I've heard that Bioshock Infinite is a decent game (and Linux version performs well).

I asked them about it here, but they didn't bother replying.

Spec-Ops: The Line is the only Linux game in the bundle you'll get for a dollar. You have to pay more than the average ($8.42 at the moment) for Civ V and at least $15 for BL:tPS as well. Still worth it if you happen to like all of them I guess. Although I've played base Civ V and it really needs whichever DLC had the diplomacy stuff to be interesting IMHO.

Does MafiaII run perfectly fine with wine? I remember trying that with a CD Version some years ago with no success
