Hardcore first-person adventure game 'Far Out' released with Linux support

BeamboomWhat's the "hardcore" element here?

Pretty sure it's just "hardcore sci-fi". From what I can tell, there's nothing particularly hardcore about the gameplay itself.

The Humble Classics Return Bundle is a really good deal for Linux gamers

Like many here, I own the lot! Ah well... at least this article reminded me of Shadowrun. I might put a few hours into a re-run at some point soon.

Space colony sim 'Maia' shows reasonable sales on Linux

As with Beamboom and STiAT, I'm looking forward to playing this, but don't generally buy EA games. I'll buy when it's "released" and after all the coverage GOL has given it over the years (wow... nearly five! Five years!! And four of those on Linux), it's almost certainly an instant buy!

FoxyFirst they ask for more money to keep up the project & now they decided to cancel it ???

Unbelievable...

The article is pretty clear that it's not cancelled, but maybe you should read the original comment to make up your own mind.

Before saying that kind of things maybe you should learn to build your own opinion instead of believing things of one person especially when this guy who was supposed to lead the project ended up by tooking the money of thousands people to play with it.

So... even though I didn't state an opinion, and simply referred you to the facts as presented in the article... let me get this straight... I need to "learn to build my own opinion". Presumably, instead of using facts.

Whoa, gotcha. Glad we cleared that up. Peachy.

At a guess, I suppose I'm only meant to this when my "opinion" (or the facts) don't align with your own. Amarite?

Rise of Industry, a strategic tycoon game is now out in Early Access

Huh. I didn't realise Cinnamon and XFCE was the default experience on Ubuntu.

I wish developers would just support the default, out of the box experience. Really weird to hear things like "Ubuntu is a mess" when they're actually talking about various respins. Valve's official line is that they support "Unity, KDE and Gnome". No mention of Cinnamon or XFCE!

That said, they also say they only support Ubuntu 12.04, which is hardly ideal in 2018...

Rise of the Tomb Raider announced for Linux, port from Feral Interactive

So, so happy to be getting the sequel. Absolutely LOVED the first one, so this is a full-price insta-buy for me. And Vulkan! Boom!

Just superb.

Dead Ground mashes together Tower Defense and other games to make something fresh

Love the look of this - and as a certified TD addict, it's an essential purchase!

Dawn of War III likely to get no more major updates as it hasn't sold well

omer666So the rampant negativity won in the end. Well, whatever...

I bought it full price despite the negativity, but I have to admit... I only played 22 hours before just, kind of, moving on. It didn't grab me. I found the low quality of tutorials really frustrating (like the elf-like race creates some kind of portal, but I didn't know why I had to create them - was just told doing so was vital... okay then). Winning a scenario tended to revolved around zerging resource spots early on, consolidating briefly, then zerging the next. So much for tactics.

The roadmap for 'Rise to Ruins' has some sweet changes on the way, also info on their Linux sales

I'm looking forward to trying this. Hopefully not another eternally EA title and from the sounds of it, it's not.
