Great Linux games on Steam currently under a fiver
25 June 2018 at 4:59 pm UTC

EhvisIIRC, the DLCs are all set at level 30 in normal mode. So that's not really an option either.
They are set to different levels, starting at 15, so it's easy to start a new game, level up on first missions and go to DLC. That's what I did. It would have been strange if they were set to the same level, because a player would start one at its recommended level and finish it as too overlevelled for others.

EhvisSolution is to switch to True Vault Hunter Mode so the DLC are back at your character level.
Or to start a new game as a different character.
Kelsso maybe just getting the base game rather than GOTY is a better idea? It'd certainly be cheaper, and I'm unlikely to play much co-op.
The DLC of GOTY edition is too good to miss it.

Feral Interactive have no plans to put their Linux ports on GOG

(conspiracy theory mode on) What if Valve gives some benefit to developers who don't put their games on GOG?

lodIf you go to a Linux forum and ask for help fixing your WiFi driver, everyone will ignore you. If, instead you say "Linux sucks, you can't even get a fuckin Wifi driver working!" thousands of people will solve the problem for you.
I should try this. I have a laptop with Linux Mint, and every new kernel branch breaks its Broadcom BCM43142 Wi-Fi. It takes months to get fixes, and I still have to use kernel 4.13. I tried to boot Mint 19 beta, it has kernel 4.15 and doesn't allow to select another one via mintUpdate. Switching drivers doesn't help. Linux sucks.

It's unlikely that I'll win, but Iconoclasts.

A house where Linux users live:

(yes, this house is real. I'm not sure if there are actual Linux users though.)

Linux game porter Ryan 'Icculus' Gordon is looking for new games to bring to Linux

KimyrielleBeing my brutally honest self...thanks, but we don't need yet another garage game on Linux. We got a few thousand of these. What's Turok anyway? What we need at this point are AAA titles. Stuff that makes people go "Wow, you Penguin people can play THAT???" Icculus is a human porting machine who can get anything ported you throw at him. His talents are completely wasted porting B list games. Again, what's Turok? Somebody go convince Bethesda or a company like it to let him have a go at their back catalog. Please?
I read somewhere that after spending a year on Rocket League port he decided to handle only small games. It's too time-consuming for a one man team to port a modern AAA game.

MarkyIt seems odd that both the painting and the poem come from people with such similar names:
John Martin
John Milton

Could there be a video game character with a similar name?
Martin is one of the main characters in Call of Duty 1. I don't know his name but probably it's John because most characters in action games are Johns. And the CoD games have hellish quality now, so BlOps 4 for Linux confirmed.

rustybroomhandleKiiinda hoping it's not Final Fantasy XV because even on Windows the system requirements are a tad on the heavy side.
I played the demo, it run fine on my computer (on Windows 7).

g000hAlthough it does fit in quite well with the clues, Bandai Namco have practically zero Linux presence in their game catalogue (The only one I am aware of is Chroma Squad).
PAC-MAN 256 and DeadCore has Linux versions too. Anyway, everything happens for the first time someday. I remember how surprised I was when a Square Enix game got ported a Linux (Tomb Raider, two years ago).
