Saturday Mag: Linux gaming news odds and ends plus a look at a few things on sale
13 October 2018 at 3:39 pm UTC Likes: 2

adwamslayerI've finally been able to compose myself and play Anmesia: The Dark Descent. I think I got it on sale or in a humble bundle a fair while ago. Now i'm into it, i'm quite enjoying it due to the atmosphere and story. Just wish I played it sooner!

Amnesia still remains unplayed for me, as does nearly every other horror game i somehow own. All except SOMA which i picked up in the current humble bundle. I'm too much of a wimp to play it once it goes dark though, so I've managed 5 hours only so far.
I can recommend it if you're braver than me.

Feral Interactive are teasing something, again

ZlopezI think it's Dawn of War 3, the sound of the gunfire is very similar to the imperial knight solaria from DoW 3.

Even the sweeping gunfire is reminiscent of that Knight, so I'd go for DoW3 too. Not really my cup of tea, but I'm sure plenty will be happy by it.

ATOM, an RPG inspired by Fallout is on Kickstarter, Linux demo available

That ui looks way too much like the original fallout games to not run into issues further down the line.

I've got a naga (my second) and couldn't do without the numpad anymore. I play too much wow to stop using it.
Pro-tip Liam. Turn that light off. It generates heat and will make the palm of your hand sweat after long term use.

Snoost, a new cloud gaming service has opened with Linux support, uses Steam's in-home streaming

Well this is really interesting. I've been watching Liquidsky pretty closely since the article the other day and have been wondering whether its for me. With the lack of real Linux support (and the lack of any real service right now) I'm already having my doubts over it, so it's really nice to see an alternative.

This type of service really could be the future of gaming for many I think, and I wouldn't be surprised if one of these companies gets picked up by Valve at some point. I think the first success will happen when the pricing becomes right though.

It looks gorgeous. Watching the IGN gameplay video is making it quite appealing.

Edit: The dev is a brit too, so that makes me happy

LiquidSky, the 'PC in the Cloud' gaming service will support Linux
2 March 2017 at 6:02 pm UTC

iiariI've been using LiquidSky on Linux and paying for it, both on my Chromebooks via Linux (!!) and via my Mint-on-Steam-Machine rig. It's basically a Wine wrapper to the PC client, but I've found it to be wonderful. I have fast in home internet (90-135 Mbps) and it's been butter smooth playing titles at 1080p at full details with no discernible lag.
What does it cost? I see a $9.99 monthly option, which looks reasonable to me, but then there's mention of credits. I can't seem to find a clear answer as to whether you would still need to buy credits even if on a monthly subscription.

NVIDIA have announced the 1080 Ti and it's a beast

PompesdeskyGoing AMD is the best to support the efforts made towards open source drivers, hopefully Vega will be competitive enough to get a good adoption
I've actually been wondering how well Vega will be supported on Linux. I've felt locked in to Nvidia ownership for way too long and the insane price hikes going into the 10x0 series made me really wish that AMD performed on Linux just as well. It will be a case of wait and see I guess

Torment: Tides of Numenera released for Linux with day-1 support

STiATGrr, not even done with Tyranny yet...

But cool!

I have BG2 to play first, and then finish PoE after BG2. Finished Tyranny some time ago.

We might have to start asking developers to put a hold on supporting linux, just so we get a chance to finish games....
