TcheyA lot of us (backers from Kickstarter or Indigogo) are waiting for our keys, and i guess when they are received, you will see a pack of suddenly very positve reviews on Steam.

Doesn't Steam hide such reviews by default? I seem to recall it now prioritizes reviews from people who purchased directly on Steam, as a means of combating "free keys for positive reviews".

scaineLike many here, I own the lot!

Oooh, look at all the nice games in this bundle! But... I already own every single one, doh!

Followed the link for Keyboard Sports, and found that Humble Bundle is the publisher. Clicked through to the list, and was dismayed to see that only 25% (2 of 8) of the games they publish support Linux:

MetallinatusI am SURE I didn't need to buy anything to create my account in late 2012....

Same here, although it may have been a year or so later for me (I don't recall).

The latest System Shock update reconfirms Linux support, shows off more art

wvstolzing(I can't help but wonder whether someone could do the same for the first Deus Ex....)

I first played that on the PlayStation 2, and was surprised how much better it looked than the Windows version, when I finally saw the latter. I don't know why they never ported the improvements back over.

KING Art may be doing a Kickstarter for RTS 'Iron Harvest', they're asking for feedback

stanThe linux community is important to them, but they never fixed the broken Book of unwritten tales… go figure.

I played through all three of those games, and don't recall any issues; what was broken for you?

On a side note, it's worth mentioning that these guys consistently deliver their Kickstarter projects on time, which is extremely rare! This game does look cool, but if the minimum pledge is ~$40, I'll probably pass... I have way too big of a backlog to fork out that much for a game I probably won't get around to for a long time. :-/

The Linux 2017 GOTY Awards are now over, here's the winners

BeamboomBut as for those categories that requires every nominee to have been played - we better leave that to the one guy amongst us who has.

Nothing against Liam and his opinions, but I think it's better to have input from all of the "editorial staff" to balance things out.

GOG have a little sale on again, time to get some cheap games

GustyGhostIs there somewhere one can purchase motivation to play all of these cheap games that I've bought?

Can someone please tell me how I can get paid to play all of these games I've bought, so I can quit my job and dedicate my life to gaming?

slaapliedjenVidia seems to want to be friendly toward the FOSS people

Other than Tegra, it's been mostly lip service... don't forget they used to have a (heavily obfuscated) open source nv driver, which they completely abandoned.

slaapliedjeDoes AMD even have the firegl drivers anymore?

fglrx is called Catalyst now (the driver package was never separate). I don't think they ever really figured out how to compete with the Quadro line; they were also trying out "FireHD" for a while, targeting "high-end" multi-display users - the same market Matrox was trying to sell into at the end of their run...
