Feral Interactive Wish To Know Why You Game On Linux
4 September 2014 at 2:25 pm UTC

I find myself using Linux more and more because I didn't like the path Windows was taking. It wasn't just the Metro interface or the lack of a Start button without manually putting it back, it was the attitude of Microsoft in response of those. Microsoft has no stake in PC Gaming. Many of those trying to make Linux better do. The fact it's free is icing on the cake but it is hardly my top reason.

I think it's a huge boost to PC Gaming if open source things such as Linux, OpenCL, and OpenGL get more attention. We need developers utilizing tools that benefit all gamers not just the ones using one brand of card or another such as PhysX or DirectX. The indie scene is where a lot of the more interesting games are coming from and they are also the ones providing more support to Linux and other open platforms.

I still have Windows on my computer but that's because I have a backlog of over 400 games and many don't play well with Wine. That number is shrinking every month though and any new game I buy is compatible with Linux or it doesn't get my money.

I enjoyed the demo on Windows so I'm glad it will be coming to Linux. Just wish they would release a DRM free version to go with it.

Developers of The Vanishing of Ethan Carter Looking Into Linux

I've had this game on my radar for a while now. Looks very interesting. If they add Linux support it will certainly climb the rungs of my wishlist quicker. Now I can only hope they plan on a demo as well.

Developer Teases With Darksiders On Linux Screenshot

I am glad to see more games coming to Linux but I found Darksiders to be boring and just a bad game. Dated graphics, poor PC port with limited graphics options and poor mouse/keyboard support. Unless they plan to fix some of the overall issues with the PC version than I can't see myself getting excited for this.

Vote For GOG To Make Galaxy Open Source

I can't wait for GOG to go Linux. My 2 top priorities for gaming is DRM free and Linux and at the moment finding both is hard. Humble store is pretty good about doing both but I love to support GOG.

I've been following Age of Wonders 3 for a while now. Linux support just may make me pull the trigger on a sale.

Crytek's CRYENGINE Powered Homefront The Revolution FPS Coming To Linux
9 June 2014 at 12:08 pm UTC

I have my doubts it will look that good upon launch but I'll be happy if they prove me wrong. I thought the original Homefront was a solid game. Nothing spectacular but not bad. Nice to see Crytek hopping on the Linux wagon.

Ask The Community: Your Thoughts On The Steam Client Being DRM
9 June 2014 at 11:57 am UTC

I believe Steam to be DRM. It may be the most user friendly DRM ever conceived but it is DRM none the less. People say it is no different from GOG because you have to download the game from GOG's site but they fail to realize that after I do that I can store the install files anywhere I please and reinstall them without ever having to use any GOG service at all. If you have a game on Steam you need Steam to use the game one way or another. There may be games that after install you can bypass Steam but to get that far you need the Steam client. All I need if my backup copy fails me is to download it again from the GOG website. No client install at all. I keep my GOG games backed up in 2 separate computers and an external hard drive so the chances of me even needing their website is slim to none.

I may prefer DRM free but I will never talk down about Valve. They do a lot for PC Gaming as a whole. Kudos to them for helping out even more.
