The Dota 2 'Spring Cleaning' update attempts to improve your overall experience

Hmmmm, I think you only need to buy a game to be allowed to use Steam Market and other community features, right? I am SURE I didn't need to buy anything to create my account in late 2012....

razing32No gold , no item shop.
For me those are all negatives, currency and items give a much needed depth and fun to the genre.
razing32Many varied maps with objectives.
That is what the mods are there for in Dota, but before they were there, I agree, different maps and objectives were one cool feature HotS had over Dota.

Become a mechanic and save the world in Iconoclasts, now on Linux

MetallinatusI'm 3 hours in and I didn't need sticks for anything, it's just a basic "Dpad + face buttons" game....

That is great news! Then this game is MINE! It's my birthday soon, that's why....

Edit: Impressive! I can confirm that my iBuffalo SNES controller worked out of the box, I did not even have to remap anything (this is the gog-version). Awesome.
Does it work with A as "confirm" button and B as "back" button out of the box? If it does, really impressive, if it doesn't, then I recommend checking the button remapping screen. I got satisfyingly surprised when I saw I could remap that....

I bought this game as soon as I could after it became available and had so far a blast as well, but if there was ONE thing I could change about it, I would include a manual aim option, where your bullets and ground pounds don't home the enemies and the shoulder buttons can be used to aim diagonals like in Super Metroid.
Please, someone make that happen, it's all this game needs for me....
But fun game regardless.

Bridge Constructor Portal announced with Linux support, blending engineering with portals

lucifertdarkI have all the older Bridge Constructor games & both Portal games, now there's one that combines both together. Count me in.
Did you actually enjoy the originals? I only played the first one and thought it must be the least fun bridge building game I've ever tried. I can't remember names, but there are free flash games around that do it better.

I do like how this one looks and I just love Portal, but I'll have to see a few reviews before I even consider having it on my wishlist.

Given the YT comments I am wondering if people will review bomb it on the Steam store page.
Just hoping for an objective review myself.

To the Moon sequel 'Finding Paradise' will launch in December with Linux support

Wow, I think it's time to upgrade my Potato to a Potato+, then :/

On a serious note, do play To The Moon before Finding Paradise, Liam, you would be stealing yourself out of an incredible game if you didn't....

The developers of 'Darkwood' have put up a free torrent if you can't afford to buy it

chancho_zombieyes I mean g2a exists for a reason and that's because the payments options are not enough in some countries.
And because it's cheaper, most people probably just buy there because it's cheaper.
chancho_zombiePeople still keep coming over to buy games to g2a, so the service they provide (even if it's piracy) maybe it's not that bad.
Then just pirate the games without paying fraudulent stores already.... even the developers prefer that way. Better getting free than paying someone in the middle money that the devs won't ever see.

LeopardI thought key reseller sites are selling keys that are generated by publishers?
You might want to take a look at this:
https://www.gamingonlinux.com/articles/buy-games-from-g2a-you-should-just-stop-already-tinybuild-lost-out-on-approx-450k-of-sales.7468
There have been a few more recent articles showing some change in that respect, but the problems with key resellers in general still exist, so that article is as relevant today as it was back then....
