After checking the site 10 times today I just remembered that we are entering Internet Christmas where ~ December 15 to February there is low social activity online

Atleast the headline is pretty sweet. Bitter sweet.

The Linux-powered Ataribox will be available to pre-order on December 14th

Money in hand, but I'm not putting it into the box until I know

A ) What Hardware it has -- CPU, GPU, Storage (Is it SSD M.2, etc.. 5400rpm won't cut it for me.)
B ) What Games can it play Day 1.
C ) How easily can I play using my Xbox 1 / Dual Shock 4 / Steam Controller ( I Imagine I will hate the Joystick thing)

There's a market for a "plug and play linux gaming console", I heard that the Alienware Steam Machines were having technical issues overheating amongst other things which choked the market out, I hope this Atari doesn't have similar technical issues with that fanless design.

Steam now has a form of platform-specific wishlisting, to help developers see demand

If I could filter my wishlist by platform that would be great.

I used to add Windows games to my wishlist and then pop in to request Linux versions. After a bit of work I helped convince to get a few games ported.

I removed all Windows games after a while just cuz I have 0% interest in purchasing no windows games.

Who does this series appeal to? Serious question.

I have a very bad habbit of buying up Linux Games in mass and wonder if I would enjoy playing this series.

Civilization VI: Rise and Fall Expansion announced and it's massive, to release next year

Is there any mechanical advantage to Civ 6 vs 5?

It seems like 5 has advanced tuned mechanics and content whereas 6 is new and full of bugs like no cross platform multiplayer.

Its just that newer isnt always better.

Age of Empires 2 vs 3 are miles apart and 2 dominates 3 in executing play style mechanics flawlessly.

Sometimes a fork should not be a spork and a spoon should just be a soon.

The Linux-powered Ataribox Joystick has been revealed, looks delightfully retro and rather stylish

AMD Radeon puts this at the top of my watch list with MESA in the great shape its in.

The 'ARK: Aberration Expansion' is due out in December

Ark is a nice game yo chill and have late night conversations with you S.O.

Many hours of great conversations were had even despite graphical and loading issues that plague the linux build.

10/10 will play again. Especially when vulkan drops.

A look at some incredible Linux gaming deals going on right now

brokeassbenDropped $30 on Civ VI last night and already have 12 hours played on it. Might need a break to eat and rest my bloodshot eyes.

Also, why is Gandhi such an ass in this game? Declared war on me for no apparent reason.
