News Comments > Minecraft for Raspberry Pi
3. Re: Minecraft for Raspberry Pi Nov 25, 2012, 05:20 mongrol
 
The Pi doesn't need this. I'd rather my kids learnt how to program the thing rather than how to play games. Open the source and let us learn how Minecraft runs instead. Far more educational.

News Comments > Serious Sam 3: BFE Linux Plans

It's funny how everyone seems to ignore Desura. They provide almost the exact same service as Steam and is a lot more developer friendly yet everyone is creaming themselves for Steam DRM crap. I guess it's the possibility of the source engine and the few games it provides.
I was an early adopter of the Mac Steam effort and it was piss poor in the beginning. Source games ran like crap.

LIMBO for linux runs it in wine from a bash script. Linux users should avoid this out of protest. This bundle is deceptively not cross platform.

and also a smaller resolution. Perfect netbook game, unplayable on a netbook since it won't do 1024x600.

wtf. Unbounded isn't even a word. It's "Unbound". Unbounded is like saying "Worser".

A shame to see but not surprising. Kudos to them though for having a go at it though They saved Torque from the "lost engine drawer" at Sierra and helped promote hobby developers. The world has moved fast since they started and in a slightly different direction.

It might just be that your game was outshined by a strong competitor and it has nothing to do with PC sales figures.

Just sayin'.

You said it. Calling it Championship Manager does not make it Championship Manager.

Oh oh, agile methodologies! Prepare for a bug ridden, released too early effort with no support and QA.

Well they have to do something. They product has become 50% more irrelevant than it was last week now that Source has been ported to Mac and Linux.

This is not good. Sod their games but this crowd currently owns 2000AD. THe single most important comic publication of the century. I've been reading it for over 30 years and they done a pretty good hands off approach to running it. The next lot might meddle.

Let me translate that for you; ""Our current business model does not allow us to compete against Football Manager because they are the real Champ Man and we're just riding on the name."

They didn't port it. It uses Cider (wine) so it's not really port and most likely runs like shit like all other cider "ports"

Totally agree with WIldone. This is pure rendered shnozzle. If you're hoping for something slightly sim like the originals then it's time you took some of those anti-capitalist wake up pills from back when big business hit gaming. This is nothing but a name cash-in, arcade romp with stupid gfx dev budgets and weak gameplay.
