Minetest, the free and open source voxel game engine has a big new release out

Hurray! GJ devs!
A few months ago I actually set up a MT server to mess around with. I just created a secondary server with 5.0 along with some mods from the in-game browser and I must say it looks nice.
Can't wait to spend some time on it!

The next big Steam sale dates have been leaked, as usual

QuotePerhaps one of these will be a good time to check out some cheap games from Windows-only developers for use in Steam Play?
Ultra yuck. Very ultra yuck.

I second that. That's not to say I don't have windows only games (and some keys still laying around that I might try). I just don't buy them just because of steamplay.

QuoteCurrently, there's an issue in the Linux version where you can't see any servers in the server list. They're aware of the issue and suggest you view the server list in your browser and connect directly.

I want to work for the QA team of either VP or BI. Sounds like the best job in the world. Free money, because who checks the checkers.....
Again, they overlook the easiest to spot problem(s)

Great news!

I made a package for it in AUR right away And yes this makes me want to buy it too. But only if the actual devs get the money.

link to the aur package

ysblokjeFor archlinux users I created some aur packages.

Did you find a way to test it?

I've been using it for a month or so. I'm the person who wrote the original PKGBUILD file that's in the gamemode git repo.

Aerofly FS 2 Flight Simulator is coming to Linux, developer needs testers
6 February 2018 at 11:36 am UTC

riusmaNote that according to french video gaming magazine Canard PC (n° 343) Aerofly FS 2 (at least in its state in mid 2016) is a poor flying simulator, far inferior to X-Plane 11 (edit : available on Linux) which is only a bit more expensive (65 € against 60 €, at least here in France).

I guess they should have stuck with their RC flying sim. I still use earofly 5 under wine. I wish THAT would get a linux update, I would buy that!

BATTALION 1944 is not coming to Linux, despite showing a SteamOS icon and system requirements

GuestIf someone ran over you in a Ford car, would you:

a) Blame the driver for being an inattentive wanker driving dangerously
b) Blame Ford for not making their car so it's impossible to run over people

For one we're not talking about cars. But digital goods in digital stores. A car I can touch and such. I almost know what I'm buying. With a digital store there is no such thing and no most users will not go to something like steamdb to check. The info on the store should be sound. PERIOD. No matter who has to set it. Both the producer and the store should check their stuff before adding it.

Let's not kid ourselves, Valve does a horrible job at checking it's wares.

Dying Light's free 'Content Drop #1' update is here with new weapons

ysblokjeFantastic, nice to see they are still growing the game. Now if the game would actually run on something else than ubuntu 16.04, I might actually enjoy it....
FYI Archlinux + Mesa is a no-go with this one

I use arch and nvidia and I can run it. I read somewhere that DL now runs on mesa too but don't know where.

Yeah it runs fine on a NVidia sporting arch install. It's only with mesa it won't run. I've been trying to track down the issue, but without the sourcecode it's more akin to an unwanted S&M session.
