What games do you want ported to Linux? Feral Interactive want to know again
12 August 2017 at 4:44 pm UTC

I don't like using wine, i haven't bought a single windows game in about 6 years now. If you count wine compatibility as "ports" then they might as well not part any games to gnu at all...

Also i don't think referring to certain games as "impossible" therefore bad to mention is not very useful, i think Feral will know better, if they decide to look at this wishlist (or any list) at all.

I would also add Super Mario Maker to my list as well.

TES IV, TES V, gta:sa or gta 4 or anything that will still run with 4 gigs of RAM. Also Warcraft 3

Nice, looks like the Codaname: Panzers game i used to play. Will probably buy it on release if it's price isn't set too high.

If it's a new thing, then you may need to configure it. This is not typical though, i rarely had to do it for any GNU distro i use. Also, "console" versions of games are usually dumbed down versions of the PC version of the game, or the PC version is a prettified version of the console game. Why would it be a bad thing that you can choose your own hardware in a steam machine? If you have some standard configurations and you can get developers to have a lighter version for those then it will work the same way as the other consoles. If you have a game that is "not compatible" with AMD, that basically boils down to the state of the drivers, which the developers will need to fix. I personally had very few situations when i "had to" crawl around in the command line to get something to work, everything works 95% of the time.

Great news!
I really like these kinds of games!
For those who don't like minecraft running on java, check outvoxelands (it's free software, the gameplay is good imo just a bit rough around the edges)

Epic Games founder thinks Microsoft will essentially break Steam in later versions of Windows 10

well, support motherboard manufacturers that are not M$ made. There are more players to the whole computer scene than M$, i seriously doubt they will be able to force all motherboard manufacturers to do their bidding. Simply boycott those that do, and support the ones that don't, even if the hardware might be not as good in other respects

Mojang working on new launcher for Minecraft, Linux might not see support

I think they will just ditch java after some time altogether, some of the non-original ports are written in other languages already. I would expect them to drop linux and maybe mac support at that point. Which is sad to see, they were a pretty nice company before Notch sold them to M$. That said, there are alternatives, that run better on linux and just need some love. (voxelands for example)

One thing I do not like about steam is that you can't turn the auto-updates off in many games. It is annoying when you want a game to stay at a specific version, or if you like to do them manually.

HITMAN looks like it's coming to SteamOS & Linux

That means i might not need a new computer to play it if and when the port is finished. :)
