System76 have announced a new Oryx Pro laptop model and it's a bit of a beast

velemasJust use Asus ROG Strix GL702ZC with Ryzen 1700 (8 cores, 16 threads, no Meltdown, no Nvidia blob) for $1499. Runs Arch Linux perfectly.
Glad to hear that it runs great with Linux. I am looking to get a laptop this year and this one fits my requirements by far the most.

I would find it fantastic if they had donation options as purchasable downloadable content on Steam like Zero-K has. That would certainly bring in additional funding for a deserving open source game.

QuoteNow then GOG—how about Galaxy on Linux next yes? We've been pretty patient on that I think…
This is patently true. It is high time that we see Galaxy on Linux.

Splendid! Now I can finally buy Momodora: Reverie Under The Moonlight for myself.

Looks great! I hope this comes to GOG as well. Why don't developers use FNA instead of XNA from the beginning, though?

FOX n FORESTS, the retro 2D action platformer has a new gameplay trailer

It seems that this is not a Metroidvania like I originally thought. I cannot say that I am not disappointed by this revelation.

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!

Total War: SHOGUN 2 and Fall of the Samurai are heading to Linux from Feral Interactive

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...

Hellpoint, the dark future action RPG has been fully funded

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
9 May 2017 at 1:04 pm UTC

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.
