liamdaweFeral have never even hinted at liking DRM

Several people said they did, but privately. Few companies publicly speak about it, since the topic is toxic and PR departments fear it. So far I see no indication that Feral are not pro-DRM, everything indicates the opposite.
Unless you can back that up, you're just spreading FUD about one of the biggest pushers of popular Linux games which isn't a good look dude.

I see absolutely nothing to say Feral is "pro-DRM". I agree with what mirv is saying. Feral have never even hinted at liking DRM and I think saying otherwise is pretty dubious.

There's likely a number of reasons why including what's already been said.

bgh251f2I would believe that's because there's no clear way to know if a game bought on GOG is being played on Linux, so it would be hard to make the division of profits. The fact that there's no client can't be helping either.
Nonsense. GOG keeps track of downloads, and whether you downloaded an .exe or a .sh is not hard to count(GOG installers come as .sh, I think they're AppImages)
GOG installers are MojoSetup.

The FPS Insurgency: Sandstorm looks good from the E3 trailer

sbolokanovIf this behavior does not change in the near future (getting pushed for post-launches), I guess Tux gaming won't become a thing.

My blacklist expands rather quickly.
It's already a thing. Linux gaming is here, now and plenty of people are enjoying it.

However, delayed releases will pretty much always be a thing. At least, until market share increases a lot.

I am aware of what they've said before. This was before their choice of ports were available on GOG, now one is, so it's more relevant.

You may very well be right on that one. I would be surprised though, if GOG didn't have some way of tracking it

Croteam are having a big sale to celebrate 25 years

KelsHuh. Looking at the sale page again, I see that out of the SS games, only 3 and Bogus Detour have the Linux logo. That limits the options a bit.
TFE and TSE also have Linux versions. They don't have Linux logo on their respective pages since standalone versions are Windows only, but with them you get access to Serious Sam Fusion, which works on Linux natively and has built-in TFE and TSE campaigns (you can play them in Fusion if you own respective standalone games).

Oh, that makes things look a lot better. I had no idea.
That's mentioned in the article too btw

Oxygen Not Included just got a major update & a new animated short

QuoteYou can grab Oxygen Not Included on Steam with 40% off until June 21st. Absolutely recommended!

I just noticed that it only says 40% when I'm logged in. But when I opened it in a private window, it says 20% off. Since you can't buy anything without logging in, there must be some other reason for this difference.
Yeah weird, not mentioned at all, but possibly due to owning previous games. Have mentioned that now, cheers.
