I was recently a guest on the 'Destination Linux' show, check it out

chancho_zombiethen you think I'm just going to shut it off so it stops and it won't let you (please don't turn off your computer).

When Windows, I think it was Windows 98, started to tell "You can shutdown your Computer now", I was joking one day the computers would tell us we must not shutdown them. Well, here we are... ;-)

It was in Win95 already, back in pre-ATX days when turning your computer on/off was done with a hard switch supplying and cutting power to the mobo. The standard was called AT. Perhaps Win98 had that functionality still, but I was fully on ATX hardware by that time.

2:35: we are a major platform! ;-)

Corpse Party, a story-driven adventure and horror game can now be played on Linux
6 November 2017 at 8:23 pm UTC

I played it on PSP back when it was a thing. It's really great; I liked it enough to go for all endings. It had very good surround audio when using headphones; I wonder whether that's been preserved here. Highly recommended.

Helicopter combat game 'Heliborne' has left Early Access
14 October 2017 at 7:13 am UTC

And now I have to buy it, not least because they made a Polish camouflage pack for some reason, not that I'm complaining.

It looks very cool. I need to dig up my Thrustmaster HOTAS set. I wonder if it'll work with Linux. I will certainly need to get a joystick port to usb adapter.

GOG are offering you a copy of Torchlight II if you own it from Steam or Runic directly

jegmancsCan we as Linux users forget about "piracy"? Illegal downloading is not equal to taking a ship violently (and likely killing everybody/taking hostage on board)! I really don't like that we still use the Microsoft (Ballmer/Gates) lingo.

About the above method: why not buy on GOG directly then? I "bought" (khm. they offered freely) Torchlight I, and it works through Wine.

The term piracy was invented because browsing the internet was called in the past as "Navigating the web", or similar things. Who are the "thieves" who navigate? The pirates. Hence, internet piracy.

The term piracy as pertains to copyright infringement has been in use long before the internet came about. Some 400 years before.

Game developer 'Atlus' issues a DMCA takedown against open source PS3 emulator
28 September 2017 at 7:39 am UTC

Pretty bizarre move, I can't see how someone at Atlus/Sega thought this would be of any benefit to them. And they publish/make such good games, too.

Mesa 17.2 officially released

They don't list LLVM on their compiling page, so maybe it's just that no-one is doing any work to make it compatible?

The developers of 'Darkwood' have put up a free torrent if you can't afford to buy it
27 August 2017 at 9:14 pm UTC

I just bought the game from GOG to support the developer. I am glad things have worked out for them.

Realms of Arkania: Star Trail, a hardcore RPG with turn-based combat has released with Linux support
15 August 2017 at 8:22 pm UTC

I played one of the Realms of Arkania games back in the day (Shadows over Riva) and I liked it very much. I got the Blade of Destiny remake off Steam a few years back and it was a horrible, broken mess, looking terrible and running at sub-20 fps on my rig. I hope this one's better.

The Long Dark officially leaves Early Access tomorrow, check out their launch trailer
1 August 2017 at 2:47 pm UTC

GOG still has the 426 build posted, the same that's been there for the past couple of months, IIRC. Will I find the story unlocked when I get back home, I wonder?
