Valve's digital card game Artifact releases this month with same-day Linux support

KimyrielleThey should have delayed the Windows version by half a year. I guess that would have doubled our market share right there.

As I have said before, my opinion is that they should give a free version only for linux that you can get for a limited time of a couple of months for example. Whoever gets this can play the game for free but only on linux. If he wants to play on windows/mac or does not get that in the limited time of the offer he has then to buy the game. What do you think of that idea? If I were Valve I would do that to help linux market share, not the exclusivity thing.
Perhaps they can make a version in the store that is just for Linux, without Steam Play (such as what the Arma 3 developers suggested - except that they meant for a paid version to be that way) (in the cross-platform sense, not Proton sense) that would be the exact same as the one with Steam Play (again, in the aforementioned sense), except that it would only work in Linux, overriding trickery like going into Linux to get the game for free, and then playing it on Windows, while avoiding any such limitations to paying users. Those who purchase it (regardless of which OS they purchase it from) would have it with Steam Play (yet again, in the aforementioned sense) working across any OS they feel like using, at any given time. I think this would be far more effective as a strategy with Half-Life 3, though. ;)

QuoteThanks a lot!
There's also "those of us" ~= "those among us", which you may have (also) been thinking about.

Example:
"Those of us who use GNU/Linux have a higher-than-normal tendency to care about software freedom." One would never use the word "these" (as in "these of us") in such a context, at least to my knowledge!

Having said that, you're welcome.

ShmerlThe last remaining milestone for it now is Mesa landing transform feedback patches.
* should it be "these" instead of "those" in proper English?
I think it's "this" --> "singular nearby thing", "these" --> "plural nearby things", "that" --> "singular distant thing", "those" --> "plural distant things".

Possibly-helpful Examples:
1) This book, over here, seems good.
2) These books, over here, seem good.
3) That book, over there, seems good.
4) Those books, over there, seem good.

Edit:
What you said would probably be better stated as "The few of us [...]".

Power-Metal-GamesIt's Ubuntu 18.04. I assure you that I tried every possible thing I found on the internet and NOTHING worked. Not a big thing because I work every day so it's better not to play at all. I will just wait a little and reinstall the OS.

Wasn't there a bug and in the Ubuntu 18.04 Steam package? (Not the first time I got the impression installing Steam on Debian is easier than on Ubuntu...)

There is something that definitely prevents it from installing. But anyway, big thanks to all of you trying to help. This a great community. I almost regret that I mentioned that problem.
What about doing dpkg --add-architecture i386 && apt-get install -fy && apt-get install --reinstall -y steam? Does that fix your problem?

It's time to bug Feral Interactive about future port requests once again

I'd really love it if Batman: Arkham Knight were to be ported. (I'd only buy it if it were to get a Linux release.)

FPS 'Interstellar Marines' is still alive and updated, finally fixes their Wargames mode timer on Linux

BoldosHi guys,

I have a spare copy of IM (for around 2 years now!) in my Steam inventory.
Since I do not have anything better to do with it, I will give it away as a Steam gift to the first person who raises a hand here ;)

Disclaimer: Steam account is required, since this is giftable against another steam account only.
Consider my hand raised.

Steam now has a form of platform-specific wishlisting, to help developers see demand

s8as8aIf I enable this, would I (still) be able to receive games with no Linux port as gifts?

Would the only things that change be that (i) games that have no Linux port just wouldn't show in the store, when I'm logged in, and that (ii) I'd help show demand for Linux ports?

1. This setting affects only the main page of the store. You won't see non-Linux games in your discovery queue and in the "Now Popular", "New" and "Specials" sections. Although you'll still see all games in the "Upcoming" section.

2. Yeah, that'll help show demand for Linux native versions. But nobody know will it really help as of now
Thanks for letting me know.

SuperTuxKart 0.9.3 RC1 released as the 'Halloween Update'

KelsLooks really good in terms of gameplay, although the dead-eyed, expressionless characters still freak me out too much.
I'd say that seems fitting for a Halloween update.
