The curious tale of vanishing Linux & SteamOS ports, a status on a few of them

Quoting: Shutup-FoolI'm still pissed about Project Cars too.

That one probably deserves the top spot because it was the original developer that would support it. First as same day release, then with some delay. Now it's a year further without a single word.

I'm glad I have absolutely no desire to pre-order things.

Looks like Shadow of Mordor has bad graphical bugs with Nvidia 364.12

All they've said is that an update including a fix is in the works. No mention of a release date, but if you have problems you can request access to the beta.

System Shock Pre-Alpha Demo now available on Linux, nearing stretch goal
17 July 2016 at 12:03 pm UTC

For a game in confined spaces, the just below 60 fps average I got is quite low indeed. Not a problem for a pre-alpha though. Also, Vulkan should be coming this year, so than alone should help it by the time this is released. Which I expect will be well into 2018 (haven't seen an accurate release date yet).

So why is there a Saints Row IV logo in the overview picture?

There are several mods available for camera's. Including perspective, free roam and coaster cam. (on parkitectnexus, not the workshop yet)

This game has one big flaw. It exposes that I have no talent for building things! :D

Nightdive Studios are making a System Shock Linux demo after gathering feedback

Quoting: Zelox
Quoting: liamdaweMac apparently is a lower priority as Linux has been in higher demand.

That's interesting, and that's got to be a first for me at least.

It may simply be that Linux users are more active in finding what's out there and Mac users are more passive and simply buy what's available. If that is the case, Linux may be a more interesting target for crowd funding.

Pro Pinball Ultra now available on SteamOS & Linux

Initially it's a bit odd. First you download the steam game. Then it starts downloading table from within the game. I changed the viewing angle and it started downloading again. Both downloads specifically for my resolution.

Of course, like anyone, I expected the table to be 3d model. But this proves it's actually a pre-rendered view. The big advantage is that it looks absolutely perfect. But you are restricted to the views they give you, which is currently only two of the five.

I found another disadvantage. After 15 years without Windows, I'm thoroughly out of practice on pinball games. :D

Why? Doom is now OpenGL and it's not available on Linux either.
