Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night for Linux has been officially cancelled

Maybe I'm just hoping for the best, but this seems like just an omission or maybe bad English. Why would they need to offer you the option to change your platform if the alternative option wasn't a refund? If there were no second option, the wording would be, "Mac and Linux users will receive the Windows version instead." I could be wrong, of course.

Looks awesome! I'll wait until it leaves Early Access though.

Heroes of Newerth drops support for Linux and Mac

I remember way back when S2 released "Savage: The Battle for Newerth". Their trailer was so very attractive, but I probably only played the game once. It was exciting that something so fancy-looking had Linux support but ultimately just not the kind of game I liked. Apparently, many people did like it though. It's a shame the new company isn't as Linux friendly.

DiRT 4 is officially coming to Linux, port from Feral Interactive

Xpandera bit late port to a game that hasn't been successul and is mediocre at the best. I guess at least a game thats not grand strategy on the list

Hoping DiRT Rally 2.0 port will be day one or relly close to release though.

You really just made that up, didn't you? It has "generally favorable" reviews and has even won awards. I obviously don't have sales numbers but the fact they're going ahead with a port would suggest it has solid sales numbers as well.

X4: Foundations for Linux will not see a beta at release today, still coming though

kfI'm really tempted to try this out with Proton, but I should really just wait. I also have several exams coming up soon.

Reading the reviews for the game I'm not in any kind of hurry to buy this, I wanted an improved version of X3, not an improved version of X: Rebirth.

It's no Rebirth (apart from buggy release, which works in our favour having to wait), I recommend checking actual footage from the like of ObsidianAnt rather than Steam reviews.

From what I read in the reviews, it sounds like the X3 fans are pleased with the gameplay, while they managed to keep some of the good features from X: Rebirth. Most of the negative reviews are related to performance. It seems like it's a buggy mess right now.

Can someone make a single game in their library private so no one knows they're playing? Asking for a friend.

Holy Potatoes! A Spy Story?! from Daylight Studios to release for Linux on November 7th

madpingerI'm still buthurt with this dev over the 'Red Shell' thing, sure they removed it in the end but insisted on leaving room to do such things down the road again.
I had never heard of such a thing, so had to look it up. Seems sketchy. In the end, the customer is always right.

I like the theme of this game.

As with any marketing, they could have avoided the scandal by just being up front about it. A simple, "Do you agree to help us by sending anonymous XYZ data?" would have worked. Or they could have just created a post-purchase survey. It's the secrecy and lack of choice that usually upsets people.

According to Kotaku, Microsoft is close to buying Obsidian

People often try to assign human emotions and intentions to Microsoft, but it's a corporation. It exists to make money for shareholders, and it will buy and sell its CEO's own mother if it means making an extra few dollars. Having said that, if they find Linux versions of games to be profitable, they might release some, but if Linux ever became serious competition, that would stop.

PublicNuisanceAlways good to see a demo version of a game.

My thoughts exactly. I miss the days when pretty much every game had a demo.

TemplarGRSeems to be a great game. I grew up with the original Fallout games. Definitely a purchase from me, when it is fully released of course. I don't do early access, ESPECIALLY for RPGs, since campaigns tend to be huge in terms of playtime and i hate the constant changes and additions of content which make me feel i am constantly missing something and should begin from scratch. So, eagerly waiting for the full release on this one!

Agreed. Any game with a story needs to be played from beginning to end. I wouldn't want to read a book with missing chapters or a serial TV show with missing episodes. I've also read that there are some balance issues with the combat that only time and care can fix. I'd happily wait and pay full price for a good finished product.
