After many years of floating through space on the back of a missile, following a successful career in beating people up for not playing Sega Saturn, the missile returned to earth. Upon returning, I discovered to my dismay that the once great console had been discontinued and Sega had abandoned the fight to dominate the world through 32-bit graphical capabilities.

After spending some years breaking breeze blocks with my head for money and being mocked by strangers, I have found a new purpose: to beat up people for not playing on Linux.

Dear Valve and Steam Machines OEMs, you have it all wrong

By Segata Sanshiro,
Most of us reading this site want Steam Machines to do well. Not all of us will be interested in buying the hardware, but we're aware that its success is also tied to the success of Linux as a gaming platform, which is why I'm pretty miffed that the OEMs and Valve have messed it up.

By Segata Sanshiro,

This will be spoiler-free for both Deponia Doomsday as well as the original trilogy, since some might still be intending on playing that.

Firewatch: first impressions

By Segata Sanshiro,
Since I first found out about Firewatch, I was intrigued so when it was released, it was an instabuy. A narrative-driven game with some mystery to get you hooked in one the plot is exactly the kind of game we need in games. As of now, I have played just over 2 hours of the game, so I shall provide some spoiler-free first impressions.

Looks like Republique is no longer getting a Linux port

By Segata Sanshiro,

Dreamfall Chapters review

By Segata Sanshiro,
Dreamfall Chapters Book 4 has been released, accompanied by a major engine update and the time seems apt for a review.
