I assume my Steam account, my Nintendo account and my PlayStation account remain separate entities?

Linux hardware vendor Entroware has unleashed Hades, their first AMD CPU desktop

dpanterthere will always be an extra cost involved when buying a pre-assembled PC vs buying parts and building it yourself, that's the nature of the beast.

The issue I have is that it's significantly more expensive than PC Specialist, not that it's significantly more expensive than building it myself. I am at the stage in life where I'm quite happy to exchange money for time spent fiddling with tiny screws.

TuxeeWith a 500GB SSD and a GTX2070 (and an otherwise minimal configuration) you end up around 2,500 Euros. An absurd price.

I did an equivalent spec machine on PC Specialist and, even with some 'expensive' components like Samsung SSDs, PC Specialist came out £300 cheaper. I don't mind paying a bit extra to support Linux and Open Source, but if that's their angle they really should offer AMD graphics cards as an option.

Beamboombut like I say how can a library-specific bug really help on other platforms, where other libraries are used for that same function where a particular issue is not present?

The library-specific bug could expose a problem in your algorithm that you've mostly been able to ignore up until now because the bug only occurs in 0.01% of cases with the other library, so you've never been able to replicate it.

Unity have changed their terms of service, which has essentially blocked SpatialOS and streaming services

EikeWhen using streaming, shouldn't the client only need minimal software, comparable to what is in the Steam Link?

As far as I can see the terms cover using a Steam Link too: "over the Internet or other network"

mirvJust want to point out that Google already have an OS that uses Linux...

Actually they have two: Android and ChromeOS.

I would just like to add to the speculation in this comment thread the speculation from this slightly older thread and note that Assassin's Creed was one of the guesses on that. If Ubisoft have indeed ported their game to Linux it's possible they brought in some expert help?

  • Batman [a-zA-z]*: already have OSX port

Batman: Arkham Knight is Windows only on Steam. Given that they pulled out of doing the port before it seems unlikely, unless they think they can make a better job of it now Vulkan/Metal is an option.

ageresBioShock 1&2 Remastered?

Bioshock 1 Remastered has already been ported by Feral, the image shows both Mac and Linux ports for the new thing. It could be 2 I suppose, but why wouldn't they port the first one to Linux first?

An update on INSOMNIA: The Ark for Linux, still coming but no ETA

QuoteDo we want a Linux version, full of issues both in terms of bugs and major gameplay mechanics having problems?

Yes. Parity is what I want.

The Early Access MMO 'Project: Gorgon' now has a demo available

nitroflowFrom what is said in the trailer this is a much less polished version of Shroud of the Avatar, so why bother with this now that SotA went F2P?

If you are at all interested in what was promised in the SotA Kickstarter, this game is a lot closer to that than Shroud turned out to be.
