6 July 2018 at 5:19 am UTC

Wow, that was fast!

slaapliedjeApparently I already have both of them! They going to port the second one?

Me too, must have been in some bundle.

Looks like 'Desperados: Wanted Dead or Alive' may be coming to Linux

EikeAnybody knows if there's a chance for the Monkey Island 1 & 2 remasters?

FWIW, those worked quite well in WINE (along with Telltale's Tales of Monkey Island) when I played them a few years ago.

KeyrockI have high hopes for this game, as it has Chris Avellone as its narrative designer.

That guy sure gets around! (in a good way; I always see his name associated with highly reviewed games)

I seem to recall when account creation first started, but I tend to lurk a long time without creating accounts, lol! Thanks Liam for sticking around, and only quitting for short periods both times.

The Steam Linux market share for June was 0.52% as Steam is still growing rather rapidly

wolfyrionI am using Linux for work and other things as well but I dont think I will ever dualboot
I have a PS4 just to play AAA Titles (if I ever have time) that I cant play on Linux.
(Imagine that I have Resident Evil 7 , God of War,Monster Hunter,Shadow of the Colossus + so many other AAA tittles and I havent played anything so far)

I have "dual-booted" Linux, DOS, and OS/2, but the only version of Windows I have had installed on my computers was Windows 3.1, over 20 years ago. My extensive "backlog of shame" covers stacks of DOS games, PS2, PS3, PS4, and even a handful of Wii games. Whenever someone asks me "why not install Windows so you get more games," I have to mention the huge stacks of games I will probably never get to... :-p

Steam Summer Sale is up, free game from Humble Store & Fanatical sale too
22 June 2018 at 6:06 am UTC

NovenTheHeroYou can get a Steam Link for $2.50. Insane.

I thought I got it cheap when it was $15; crazy! I guess they are shifting focus to software versions of it, like the Android and (rejected by Apphole) iOS versions.

The shoot 'em up 'Super Galaxy Squadron EX Turbo' is now available on Linux

GuestDon't they appear when you filter "recent" games?

I think that's more about recently purchased and/or played. Maybe recently updated gets sorted in there also; not sure?

GuestSpeaking of which, is there a way to keep track of Win-only games in one's library that suddenly become available on Linux ?

The only method I've heard of is as described by Suppen - create a "Win-only" category, put all those games in it, and if that category starts showing when you are filtering to Linux games, then surprise! You have a new playable game.

Humble's 2K Build-Your-Own-Bundle has some good Linux games
15 June 2018 at 5:11 am UTC

dosHumble post-IGN acquisition started to look and behave like dozens of other bundle sites.

The Humble Store has had "build your own bundles" with extra discounts many times in the past, long before IGN. Pretty sure I got a bunch of Daedalic and/or Telltale (run great in Wine) games from a previous sale.

Like others, I've got most of the (available for Linux) 2K titles already, but this is great for those who don't.
