Found this youtube on Reddit today, looks like we have some great games coming our way. I really feel the steam boxes will open the flood gates of linux games via steam.
I've been wearing the Motorola 360 since February of this year, and I have to admit that I really enjoy wearing this watch. In the past I have not been much of a watch wearer, I feel that they cause me to be late to things. I know, you would think the opposite would occur, but I think having the time so easily accessible makes me wait until the last minute to get to my destination.
It was announced today that both the Mac and Linux version of Alien: Isolation would nto be released today. There are evidently issues that effect both platforms and they are working on fixing them before they release the game. Sadly there isn't a new release date set. I was really looking forward to this game and even though I said I was going to wait to buy it; I did convince my self to get it today anyways.
This comes out tomorrow.. I so badly want this game, and plan on getting it soon. I am in the middle of moving so I wont be able to get it right away, but by the end of next month I will have it, that is for sure. I have heard nothing but good things about this game on other platforms. They claim it will scare the piss out of you. I am looking forward to that.
In my constant search for fun games to play, and my desire to stay away from Windows as much as humanly possible, I have discovered WINE. Well this isn't really a new discovery, I've used WINE off and on for years to run many different programs that I had needed for work, or whatever. If you are new to WINE, then this is something you should really check out.
I discovered this LInux Gamer guy on youtube who reviews linux games. I thought I would just give him a shout out here and maybe send some folks his way.
Torchlight II - This game was a great surprise for me. It has been a long time since I have played a hack 'n slash co-operative RPG style game. The graphics on this game look great and on my system I would get excellent frame rates. I believe this is the gap filler for those Linux gamers that are looking for a Diablo style RPG.
I decided to say screw it to Windows, and setup Linux on my gaming rig. No duel booting, just 100% Linux, I no longer have windows on any of my machines. Yay!
Sean Garbelman posted this on Reddit today.. I have never heard of this guy, but I like his teaching style, give ita look if you are wanting to learn some basic chords progression theory.
