Now that my graphics card is dead in my Linux box, I can't really continue to review linux games on Steam; that was one thing I really wanted to blog about. But I guess since there are other things that I like to talk about I can start blogging about those. For example, I'm a reddit fan, and today I discovered snoovatars. I made a custom one for my self, but not sure where they show up..
Well, I accidently fried my ATI card that I was gaming off of on my linux box. So for a little while I won't be gaming on my Linux box. I think I am going to save up some cash and build a proper linux gaming system, So for the time being I will be writing about other linux stuff, and less gaming news. I do admit though, my short time gaming on my linux box was a lot of fun, so I am looking forward to getting back into it. I may still convert my other computer to linux at some point. Not sure. Only time will tell.

My latest game to try on Steam for Linux is Rogue Legacy, this is a side scroller that is based on the old Rogue games, it has a little twist to it, that every time you die you respawn as a new character.
Installing the ATI catalyst drivers for my video card cleared up so my any issues. I can now run steam games with the steam overlay, which means I was able to turn on the framerate feature so I could get real numbers on performance. I was unable to do that before.
So far every game I have installed from steam has worked, but not perfectly. I ran into weird issues with Borderlands 2, where the game would freeze for a few seconds randomly, and any time I went into the [I]nventory menu, or opened a chest. So that was quite annoying.
I've been wanting to give gaming a try on linux, just to see how far it has progressed, and since I have been reading alot about Steam on Linux it made since to give Steam a try. I have been a Steam member forever now.. Just looked, according to my steam profile I have been using steam now for 11 years.. Wow.
This nails it :)
