Incredible looking story-based action platformer 'Iconoclasts' to release next year, for Linux too

debianxfceMaybe you need a better monitor or something?

Debian derivatives are a waste human resources and does have years old buggy software. 2D games are old.

Steam now has a form of platform-specific wishlisting, to help developers see demand

Valve should manage that DX9 and DX11 Steam games do run with wine-staging csmt enabled. Launchers are often badly made and DX games will not run when the actual game could. DX9 and DX11 game companies would get more customers when they develop for wine-staging. Porting games to Linux requires far more resources.

"Those are some slick looking graphics!"

More like graphics from the Commodore 64 era. Bruce Lee from 1984:

Steam has a special Finland Anniversary Sale of games made by Finnish developers
6 December 2017 at 3:58 pm UTC

The Shadwen demo was worth to play, but 4 euros is too much. From the black Friday sale I got Portal 2 for 2 euros and Tomb Raider 2013 for 4 euros and these games are technically and visually much better. Cities skylines we have in the house already, but I am too old for building games and prefer real things when I build something like computers and electronics.

There's masses of good Linux games on sale right now

Have you picked up anything good? Let us know!

I purchased Tomb Raider 2013 (4 Euros) and Portal 2 (2 Euros) from Steam today.

What are you playing this weekend?

Rocket League, world championships in Washington now. Watch_Dogs with almost black screen because wine-staging DX11 rendering bug, it has same features as Saints Row 2 that I will play because it is working fine.

Wine 3.0 expected this year with Direct3D 11, roadmap for future releases includes OpenGL Core contexts

1xokDoes this mean full DX11 support? For example: Could I play then GTA V in DX11 mode?

Tomb Raider 2013 works better in DX11 mode than DX9 mode with wine-staging. The game looks better with DX11. DX11 support for TR2013 has been available over 6 months.

One of Valve's choices of games to highlight for Steam Machines is more than a little silly

TheRiddickUbuntu launchpad stuff works on Debian fine?

Ubuntu is made from Debian testing and unstable. Currently zesty version of Oibaf ppa Mesa is compatible with Debian testing. You can use Padoka ppa Mesa and ubuntu flashplugin-installer too. Use case B: http://www.webupd8.org/2014/10/how-to-add-launchpad-ppas-in-debian-via.html

Debian derivatives and "stable" distributions are a waste of human resources anyway. Debian testing Xfce is a fast, light, freely configurable, easy to use and stable operating system. All Linux and wine games works fine with latest gpu drivers. Steam big picture mode works too.

PublicNuisanceWaiting on the Padoka stable PPA to get this but then I am also waiting on my money to get my RX 580 early next week so I got time.

You can use Oibaf ppa, it is updated every day often.
