Company of Heroes 2 is easily one of the best (top 5 easily!) RTS games available on Linux, it's also now in a fresh Humble Bundle.

To get Company of Heroes 2 you have to pay a bank breaking £4.84 (at time of writing), which gives you the game along with some of the DLC.

This is a fantastic deal, hopefully this will enable more of you to join in on our weekly play sessions with Feral Interactive every Wednesday morning at 10AM UTC.

Must resist dumping money into Humble for that T-Shirt, looks so nice! Article taken from GamingOnLinux.com.

Does it count as a Linux sale for Feral?
RussianNeuroMancer 4 October 2016 at 7:59 pm UTC
I have excuse - maybe I want to give Feral more money? (When I find time to play this game later.)

I'm curious. What would be the 4 others of your Top 5 ?

Even I love RTS i don't like the setting. I do already own the game. Anyway, I would play Warhammer now if there only would be people playing it. Feral? Cross-Platform?!

QuoteIt's also highly advisable to quit the game and reload it when changing any graphical options. Or else you will get weird results and performance.

Did all of that change or are you just again shilling for Feral?

Only Relic Entertainment and SEGA are shown as publisher on the game info when you click on them in that bundle.
So I am not sure Feral gets something from that sale even if they get counted as Linux sales.

I would love an updated article on GOL regarding buying Linux games on different shops, and when they get counted as Linux sales, and when the porter companies with their own publishing like Feral in this case get a cut of the sale.

Despite all those shortcomings, including some that aren't quoted above, I just LOVE this game.
Too many people are overreacting about Feral's port performances, I'm running a poor old GTX 660 and I max out most of the games they release with a pretty decent framerate.

The list above that were *reasons* not to own CoH2, not excuses!

All of those problems are technical. I doubt Liam would play the game so much if he hated it.

I have an excuse not to own CoH2 though: I don't like RTS games.
Pit 4 October 2016 at 8:52 pm UTC
Well, the excuse is quite easy: It's Feral, so it is steam-only --> no buy
