Epic Games have confirmed a Linux version of their store is not on the roadmap

I'm basically to the point where I don't even want to buy linux games made with their engine as money goes back to them. They've strung a lot of people along, myself included with supposed linux support then tossed us to the side. I was in day one and PAID with UE4 and their promised cross platform support. However the truth became apparent quickly enough as they continued to develop the UE4 engine in private forks for their own projects never considering cross platform support, never bringing any of these things to linux and so on. I'm done with this company, have been for a while now.

Linux support, from the most evil publisher in the industry... Yeah. Keep that micro in your games and I don't care if ya have native support <.<

Cities: Skylines - Industries DLC is out now along with a small free update for everyone

Dunc
QuoteCities: Skylines is basically the ultimate city builder available on Linux
Probably the ultimate city builder right now period.

madpingeridk, Is there really $15 USD worth of content in that, seems pricey to me at this point, the DLC is really adding up I suppose.
From what I've seen, it adds a whole new level of management, almost turning the game into more of a Transport Tycoon clone than a city builder, so it's not insubstantial. I don't feel like shelling out that kind of money on it myself, if I'm honest, but I think it's a reasonable price to ask.

Well, I'm happy there is more content for it, but at the same time I feel DLC'ed out, maybe more substantial DLC/Expansions for a fair price would make me feel better about it, I mean if I look at the DLC lists to games these days, sometimes it's just absurd.

Game developer revokes a user's Steam key after negative review

SolitaryI don't think games bought directly on Steam are revokable. This key was beta key he got directly from the dev as part of the Itch.io deal.

madpingerIt even makes me wonder if there are games I have that are no longer there and I'm simply unaware of it honestly.
Most likely no games are missing. You might have not noticed, but someone else would. Don't make it bigger deal than it is.

Of course, most likely none are missing, but I'm not making it a bigger deal than it is. Don't be so dismissive of others concern. It is a perfectly valid and fair statement.

The excellent space-colony sim 'Oxygen Not Included' has a Space Industry update along with a new short

I've enjoyed the dozen or so hours I've put into this title so far, but the learning curve can be a touch steep at times and require a good bit of research to get past certain points of the progression if it doesn't occur to you during regular game-play.

The style and humor is gold of course, as the prior comment indicates ^.^
