Building a new Linux gaming system

Posted on: Mon, 04/11/2016 - 14:00 By: Fratm

Some of you may know that I have been wanting to build a new system, and some of you know that I have not done something like this in years.  I finally did it.  Originally I was going to wait for income tax money, but the wife shot down that idea, so I had paid my CC down to nearly nothing and figure what the heck, my payment wont be much if I just charge it :)  I know, such an American attitude. haha.

Who want's some wang? Let's play Shadow Warrior

Shadow WarriorFor a few years now my favorite game has been Left4Dead2, I like to play it with the katana and just chop the zombies up. After this weekends steam sale I purchased Shadow Warrior, hoping it would be as cool and fun as the old 90's version of the game. Boy was I happy to see it had a survival mode, now I have a new game to play to blow off steam after a long day at work. :)

Let's Play - Bear Simulator

Bear Simulator

I played this game for the first time this weekend, despite all the negative reviews, I still felt like I wanted to give it a try, after all you get to be a bear, how bad ass is that? I had visions of rummaging through campsites and stealing food, smacking salmon out of the river and mauling innocent hikers.. Well okay maybe not that.. maybe... ;)

So I gave it a try, the game wasn't too horrible, it's playable, but there are issues that make the game annoying. Eating a kill and having the body not change, or go away, only being able to attack a bee hive once.. and a few other things.. Anyways, check out the video to get an idea what the game play is like.

My Top 5 Must Have Linux Games.

I was thinking about what got me into gaming on Linux, well besides my desktop running linux for the past 10 years or more.  What really made it so that I was happy with the idea of killing my Windows box, and just being a full time Linux user and gamer.   I think a big part of this decision was the games that I play and the fact that most of them are available for linux now, and run quite well.

Alien IsolationThat's right, you heard me.  It's finally out, Alien Isolation for Linux, and the great news is that it is half price on Steam.  Go get it!  what are you waiting for?   I purchased my copy today, but probably wont be able to play it for a while.  Since we moved into a new house, I have not had a chance to setup my computer, it sits there lonely on the floor looking sad, wondering when it will be used.

Alien: Isolation -- Tomorrow (Sept. 29 2015)

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.
