A statement from HOF Studios about the Depth of Extinction Steam key removal, plus thoughts

Being able to say sorry shows strength most people do not possess. I respect this person for not trying to find lame excuses for their actions or try to lay blame on others, when 95% of humans would do exactly that.

Lesson learned. Move on!

Aspyr Media are getting a little help from Intel for the long-delayed Linux patch to Civilization VI

I guess Aspyr is no longer really a porting house, so I can soft of understand why that's no longer a priority for them. I hope Firaxis will work with Feral in the future, or - god forbid - actually start multi-platform development in-house.

Cities: Skylines - Industries expansion announced, releasing October 23rd

thelimeydragonI just wish Paradox would restructure how they sell their DLCs.

Something like once they have over 5 DLCs that are 3 years+ old they bundle it into a "single DLC Pack" which then sells at a price slightly higher than 1 DLC. They'll still get the premium for newer DLCs but it just makes it easier and in my opinion easier to buy the whole lot.

They will probably do that eventually. They do it for most of their games. In the meantime, you can pick up the older DLC for dirt cheap during Steam sales.

Awesome! This is already the best ever city builder, and they keep making it better. People keep bashing Paradox for the abundant DLC releases, but the result is a game that grows for years, instead of devs releasing a new game with minor new features for full price, EA-style.

According to Kotaku, Microsoft is close to buying Obsidian

The bigger overall concern about this is why, as a society, we think market concentration is a good thing and accept it so readily, when everyone who ever read past the preface of a economics textbook knows that market concentration is bad?

I don't get that.

Companies buying other companies should be something that's allowed only in exceptional circumstances.

But hey, we don't seem to have a problem with a half dozen mega-corporations pretty much controlling Earth's food supply, so video games are probably fine to be controlled by a monopoly, too.

*shrug*

XCOM 2: War of the Chosen - Tactical Legacy Pack out now and with Linux support right away

Funnily enough, games are -cheaper- now than then were 20-25 years ago. As in absolutely cheaper, not just relatively. Also, back in the days, there were no "Steam sales" where you could pick up last year's games for half the price or less. If you don't insist on getting the newest game RIGHT NOW(TM), you are guaranteed to spend a lot less on games than back in the days.

Applause! That's how it should be done!

Seriously I don't know why some devs think it's acceptable to make us wait a year or two for a Linux version to appear, and then they complain if it doesn't sell well. That we're a smaller platform doesn't mean that we want to play outdated games any more than the Windows folks do. If you work with a porting house, is it really so much asked for to let them to port the game as soon as the Windows version is out? Feral doesn't need two years to port a game, and yet the few AAA ports we're getting usually launch with a substantial enough delay that I am sometimes wondering who's even still buying these games when they finally arrive on Linux. *looks at Rise of the Tomb Raider*

The Humble 'Female Protagonist Sale' is live, with some awesome Linux games

ElectricPrismIn the name of equality I wonder if people would have been outraged if Humble Bundle had a "Male Protagonist Sale"

I guess if male protagonists will ever be grossly underrepresented and marginalized in gaming in the same way female characters are today, it might actually be a thing!

If...it -really- will ever come down to that, I will sympathize. Promise!

Life is Strange 2 confirmed to be coming to Linux in 2019 from Feral Interactive

I will probably buy this game when the Feral port is out. A part of me is sad that they didn't write another great story featuring a female lead character (DotNod was one of the very first studios that got a reputation for writing great female characters, and I was sort of assuming they would stick to what they started), but the two brothers seem to be interesting enough.

Total War: THREE KINGDOMS confirmed to be coming to Linux, port from Feral Interactive

I guess for TW games there a bit of a saturation process settling in, but it's still great to see such a commitment to our platform by the TW devs.

It would be awesome if more high-profile studios would be just as committed. Feral isn't porting too many TW games at all, there are just not enough OTHER AAA games getting ported.
