This is looking really awesome. How should I miss it? Adding to wishlist right now.

Warhammer 40,000: Mechanicus announced with Linux support, due in 'late 2018'

I'm excited to see another Warhammer 40k game comming to Linux, but I will be rather cautious because not every 40k game is good.

Total War Saga: Thrones of Britannia confirmed for Linux, from Feral Interactive

I'm still waiting for Total War: Warhammer 2.
The first one is excellent as a game and as a port made by Feral.

This is still the good news.

Dawn of War III likely to get no more major updates as it hasn't sold well
14 February 2018 at 8:09 am UTC

fractalMy 40k fanatic friend got bored of it within 3 hours and we both played DoW1 and 2 for hundreds of hours. It was a major disappointment for me as well, it's like every decision they made was the opposite of what I wanted from a 40k RTS:
- the art style looked nothing like the content of 40k codices, it's hard to describe, it's like they took the comical heroic proportions of objects in 40k and tried to made them more realistic while keeping the ridiculous gothic look and making everyones faces look like they're made of play dough

This is what I can agree with. The graphics looked like DOTA, HOTS or other MOBA title - comics like. This was heresy in the eyes of the Emperor.
The graphic style of DOW 2 looked pretty good. Even Total War: Warhammer graphic style fitted warhammer universe. DoW 3 looks like being done for kids. It should be more dark and grim to befit the W40k universe.

14I played tons of hours of DoW II and was surprised how much I loved it! I did not buy DoW III based off all the reviews I read explaining the gameplay. I'm still glad I haven't purchased it. That said, I do hope there will be a revival with a DoW IV with cross-platform co-op campaign!

I didn't buy it either, I got it from a friend. He bought the Humble Bundle and he was not interested in it. Originally I wanted to buy it when the cost will be really low. I'm glad that I didn't purchased it after I played it.

I bought it only for the campaign. Even that was not good, every mission was like MOBA game on it's own. I hoped for something more like first DOW or second. At least the story was fine.

If they do DOW 4 I hope it will be something more fitting Warhammer 40k universe. Either something like DOW 1 or Total War in Warhammer 40k.

Valve has boosted their Linux ranks by hiring another developer to work on open source graphics

I'm glad to hear this.

Every larger company should support open source.

Windows 10 S might alarm Valve into boosting SteamOS again

I'm glad that I'm not using Windows anymore. I deleted it from my disk when Windows 10 upgrade became available.

If they lock themselves I hope this will be their undoing.

This time I got a popup about the survey. Only one I got this year.

The 'Linux Steam Integration' project from Solus has an updated release with Snap package support

ZlopezWhy not using Flatpak instead of snap?

Answer from Ikey Doherty (ufee1dead).

lucifertdarkWhy not use it as it was intended by Valve & stop messing about with Snap & Flatpack?

The point isn't to bring Steam through snap or flatpak (Steam is already available as a flatpak package), but to bring Steam Linux Integration (SLI) more easily to its potential users outside of Solus (SLI snap works with a Solus base snap, not the Ubuntu core one).

This is a good reason, I can take this. I saw, that the Flatpak Steam has still some issues.
