Games… Linux… Oh my….  View Printable Version

GamesFrom Joystiq:

I’ve always been a bit of a Linux junkie. Sadly, being a gamer, I’m stuck with the Microsoft OS’s if Itux baseball want to play most games. (Yes, I know there are options, but if I’m going to run Windows games, it’s easier to run them natively.) I still keep Linux on a couple of machines here.

Opinion: Regarding the Linux Gaming  View Printable Version 
Monday, September 13 2004 @ 12:27 PM CST

GamesFrom OSNews:

Linux gaming. Let's face it - it's terrible. Tux Racer? Please. Quake III, okay, I'll give you that. NeverWinter Nights? If you can get it to work. WINE? If you have enough hair left to pull out, WINE is a good choice.

WINE is a good idea but really a bridge technology, and many a techie will point out that what Linux REALLY needs is native gaming, and WINE will allow many developers to be lazy (read: Maxis/EAGames). Portable code that uses open standards (OpenGL) is nice, but OpenGL lags pretty significantly behind DirectX, so I have a hard time blaming developers there. It's not an excuse, however.

DOOM III Linux Update  View Printable Version 
Thursday, July 15 2004 @ 05:18 PM CST
Contributed by: Linegod

GamesFrom Linuxgames:

A few bottles of champagne later (so excuse the typos)....

First of all, thank you to everyone who sent congratulatory notes on the GOLD announcement. I speak for everyone at id when I say I wish I could respond to everyone personally, but hopefully this general note can convey how much we sincerely appreciate the sentiment from everyone out there waiting for the game.

A few people have reminded me of some details omitted from my initial update:

Mac and Linux: Unfortunately I don't have dates for either of these. However, Linux binaries will be available very soon after the PC game hits store shelves. There are no plans for boxed Linux games.

eGenesis proves Linux users will buy games  View Printable Version 
Wednesday, June 23 2004 @ 01:05 PM CST
Contributed by: Linegod

GamesFrom Newsforge:

About a year and a half ago the tiny independent game developer eGenesis decided to create a Linux port of its massively multiplayer online game, A Tale In The Desert. The game was designed to appeal to creative people looking for an alternative to games that focused on destruction. The company's initial thinking was that it might get a few incremental sales and garner goodwill with the community by supporting Linux. What eGenesis discovered was that, per user, Linux gamers were and continue to be their best customers. Each account, on average, has generated twice as much revenue as those of Windows gamers.

UT2004 Demo for AMD64 Available  View Printable Version 
Tuesday, February 17 2004 @ 11:03 PM CST
Contributed by: Linegod

GamesFrom LinuxGames:

That tirelessly coding fairy godmother of the Linux gaming community, Ryan "icculus" Gordon, has posted news that a 64-bit native version of the UT2004 demo (see our previous post) for AMD's AMD64 line of processors is now available. This package includes both the client and the dedciated server. Ryan cautions people to consider several factors when evaluating the AMD64 build. The compilers/drivers on this architecture aren't nearly as mature as you might be used to on a 32-bit system, so don't be too critical about performance just yet. If you don't have an Opteron, Athlon64, or Athlon FX processor then this build is useless to you. If you don't have a 64-bit operating system, then this build is useless to you. And, finally, there are reports of system lockups and reboots when running this binary: you have been warned. In short, you probably shouldn't be running this on your company's mission-critical webserver.
