I am just waiting for Salt and Sanctuary to become available on GOG. Once that happens, I am guaranteed to purchase it. The game looks, sounds, and feels incredible. The excitement is unreal!

Anders1232If I buy this game on linux to gift to someone that uses windows, will Feral get his slice? I already own the game.
In the past, one could buy games on Linux, keep them for at least 15 days so that they would be permanently recorded as Linux sales, then gift them to Windows users. That is no longer possible, however...

I will definitely keep an eye on this as it will be the first 3D game akin to Dark Souls to hit Linux. We have received some 2D games akin to Dark Souls, but never 3D. If the big publishers won't deliver, then the independent developers will.

Valve have changed how gifting games works

ageresIf a game I already own gets ported to Linux, I buy a copy and store it in my inventory. I cannot gift it immediately because I don't have any friends using Linux, so that would be counted as a Windows sale AFAIK. So, what should I do now?
I have done this a few times i.e. bought games on Linux, kept them for at least 15 days so that they would be permanently recorded as Linux sales, then gifted them to Windows users. Now Valve took even that away. This basically means that I can no longer gift games to friends who use Windows.

System76 have refreshed their most powerful Linux laptops now with 7th Gen Intel CPUs

minjYes, shipping/taxes to Europe is a bitch. If only there was a way around that
There are plenty of businesses in the EU that sell laptops or desktops with Linux on them so there is no need to order a machine all the way from the US.

Meanwhile, it has been over a year since Galaxy released for Windows and Mac OS. The folks at GOG sure like to take their sweet time.

Steam to get a massive update soon, Asia revenue increased nearly 500% since 2014 and more

I hope that the update brings the option to turn off a number of Steam features such as achievements, tracking of time spent in game, badges, and other stuff I simply do not want on my profile. I am all about options.

A general guide for the best practices of buying Linux games

ShmerlI think someone posted that GOG support told him, that they collect stats on user agents and downloads. But I can't find the source now.
That seems likely judging from the following images:



Salt and Sanctuary, a stylish 2D action RPG is now in Beta for Linux gamers

I will definitely buy this game once it officially hits Linux and becomes available on GOG!

Salt and Sanctuary, a haunting 2D action RPG looks like it could come to Linux

HadBabitsHmm, looks fun, and I do love me some Dark Soulsian action Though, something about the protagonist designs seem a bit too cartoony to me? 0.o

Edit: Upon closer inspection it's really just their faces that put me off. Looks almost kind of anime? And despite some character showing some facial stubble they all look 12 o3o

Edit²: Woah, on even closer inspection they've got really weird eyes and no nose 0.0

Edit3.0: OR EARS 8U
I do not know what kind of anime you have been watching, but the faces have been likened to fish. The bit about lacking noses and ears seems to corroborate this.
