Violent twin-stick shooter 'Hatred' is now officially out for Linux

No, just no.

I didn't play Postal when I was an angst-driven youth and I'm not going to play Hatred when I'm a happy middle aged father.

Snap! The new Minecraft launcher now has another easy way to be installed on Linux

I have installed it using snap. The launcher works, the update downloaded properly, but the game fails to start.

Asugamesworkshop! Inquisitor martyr on mac and linux please!

Considering Dawn of War II and III, then Total War: Warhammer I and II, it would be great if we had all GW-licensed games on Linux. Then Valve could release a Warhammer-branded line of Steam Machines.

Well, obviously joking, but...

mylkadoes anyone use steamos?
I do.

I do.

The only games I play on my Debian PC are those that require or work much better with a keyboard like Hacknet or Epistory, or those broken with Steam Controller like Psychonauts.

iniudanOne thing I wish they added was GUI to install games from other vendors, e.g. GOG. This includes allowing spaces in .desktop files. I know that we're talking about Steam OS, but I hope that Valve realises that without embracing openness they won't get far.

Pretty sure it could be possible for user themselves to add what you want, I remember a few years I saw online posts where emulators were integrated to Big Picture mode.[/quote]
Yes, it is possible, but it defies the idea of SteamOS. Sure, you can create a wrapper .desktop file without spaces. You can switch to the desktop and install additional software, then switch back to the BPM to add it. Neither is very couch experience.

Yes, yes, yes! Hopefully it will speed up updating drivers.

That said, the BPM is more important that the base SteamOS system. The thing is broken hopelessly not just on SteamOS, but also on Debian or Windows. Browsing special offers doesn't work. Screenshots or videos timeout. Notifications work or don't work.

Minecraft 'Update Aquatic' is a huge update which brings the new launcher officially to Linux
19 July 2018 at 4:44 am UTC

I hope that the Bedrock Edition continues to have limited support for mods. Modding community is the main reason why the Java Edition still exists.
I can imagine that maintaining two so drastically different versions is quite expensive and Microsoft would prefer to stop development of the Java Edition. However, as long as modding and YouTube videos of heavily modded Minecraft are the main draw to Minecraft, we're safe.

Interesting comments about Transistor not being Bastion. I started with Transistor and loved it. Then, when I picked up Bastion i was disappointed, cause it wasn't like Transistor.

SteamOS has a minor update to test the waters before a bigger update

Or even less intrusive, yet efficient idea: Linux-exclusive early access

For something as big as HL3, timed exclusivity would be enough, especially if first reviews were good.

Remember, Linux is free (apart from the time to learn how to install it), so if HL3 was released on Linux 2 months before every other platform millions would install Linux. If Valve announced the next generation Steam Machines in October, preloaded with HL3, and it was released for major platforms only for Christmas, thousands of Steam Machines would sell. Even if some folks would wipe SteamOS and install Windows, some would stay.
