Man I must not be fully awake yet, as I thought Blizzard was shutting down the auction house in Diablo 3. Isn't that crazy?

Does anybody know, if somebody were to tune and optimize the Linux kernel and X Windows and even some of the other software (not drivers for now), what kind of performance we might get out of "gaming distribution"? Or is this what Sony has done with FreeBSD and the PS?

I know that optimizing graphics drivers can make a big difference in games. Is it worthwhile to optimize the kernel and other software also?

All that is already ongoing in Linux. Everything is constantly being optimized. Xorg is being replaced by Wayland which should be a big jump. Nvidia has been optimizing their proprietary driver, but now even more so with Valve's help. Just pick your favorite Linux, it's all good.

Talk is cheap. Valve needs to start their own linux distro: Valve Linux or Steam Linux or something. Then they can tightly tune it for gaming. The writing on on the wall for Ubuntu is who is losing money.

Why? Steam runs on any Linux currently. Why would Valve want to manage their own OS? Are you having performance problems under Linux?

In less than a year I now have 80 games on Steam for Linux free from my Windows purchases. Of the ones I have ran on Linux, they all worked fine and performed great.

I foresee Linux being the primary gaming platform in the near future, but only time will tell. Certainly no one would miss Windows anyways.

The last one I played was GTA3 on PC and it was kinda cool, but really not my kind of game. If it is released for PC, has no additional DRM, and no performance issues, then I'll pick it up for $10 (or maybe hold out for $5) on Steam sale with all DLC.

News Comments > Timothy Zahn's Parallax Kickstarter
12. Re: Timothy Zahn's Parallax Kickstarter Sep 14, 2013, 16:23 RaZ0r!
 
Another 4X game?

Endless Space, StarDrive, and Distant Worlds: Shadows released recently, and Horizon, Star Lords, Endless Legends are in development.

I love 4X games and having a lot of choices is fine with me, but I just don't know if there is enough demand for 4X to support that many titles. Backing one on Kickstarter would be out of the question for me.

Kickstarter is a great tool for bringing games to the market that don't currently exist and big publishers don't want to make, like Star Citizen, but not for another 4X game. That would be like Kickstarting a Call of Duty title.

Wow, 80%?

Wait, is that high or low for 2013?

For EA that would threaten their survivability.

Hmm I was not under the impression this was shipping anytime soon. Maybe I just wasn't paying enough attention. Regardless, I was taking a wait and see approach to this game anyway.

Which really I should with all of them, but sometimes I still pull the trigger early. Like I pre-ordered Europa Universalis IV. I just figured there was no way Paradox could screw it up, but they very well could have. So I try not to ever pre-order but I sometimes fail.

I want to trade games, or give them away to friends when I no longer need them.

Please?

Unfortunately that is up to the publishers, not Valve or Steam. Also, Valve allowing game trading is probably not really in their best interest either. With AAA games going as cheap as two bucks on sale nowadays I'm not sure they are worth trading.

News Comments > Steam Hardware Survey & Linux
4. Re: Steam Hardware Survey & Linux Sep 4, 2013, 12:54 RaZ0r!
 
Steam works great on my machine running Fedora 19 x86_64. Seems like every day there is new games popping up on Steam for Linux that I purchased on Steam for Windows.

I dual boot Fedora and Win 7, and only boot into Windows to play games. I use Fedora for everything else. Maybe soon, especially at the rate games keep popping up in Steam for Linux, I won't have to bother booting Windows anymore.

I do think there is a bug though, as I have never seen the Steam Hardware Survey appear on Linux.

I'm not sure why this MOD team felt the need to create their own engine? It's been nothing but a thorn in their side. No 5.1 audio, poor poor performance, etc. They should have just stuck with the source engine, I'm sure someone at Valve would have helped them out a little on their special needs like rendering the environmental stuff.

Just like Dragon's Lair, they were both such a rip off. An absolute fortune must have been wasted on that game by kids everywhere when it first came out. Remember you'd pop in your quarter, start, make a wrong move, die once more, game over. Wtf?! I think I wasted about $5 before I finally quit in disgust and went back to Defender or Star Castle.


A quarter? Both were 50 cents a play here!

I'll pass. Paths of Exile, Torchlight, Van Helsing, heck even Marvel Heroes is more fun in my opinion. Oh and I think I got Sacred 2 on sale....

Marvel heroes.. seriously? Lol. Diablo 3 has numerous flaws but let's not get too crazy with the hyperbole.

There is still Grim Dawn on the horizon, by the way, for my fellow ARPG enthusiasts. :o

LOL seriously! I think I'm one of the only people on Blue's that really has no issues with Marvel Heroes and find it fun. Maybe it's because I had no expectations for it as I never even heard of it till it hit Steam and I installed it? Not sure.

Thanks for the heads up on Grim Dawn!

They have the IP and experience to ask for a monthly fee. Will just have to wait and see if the game is really good.

Also F2P doesn't really mean crap anymore at all. Planetside 2 and Neverwinter are both good examples of high quality F2P games in my opinion.

I do not understand why you would play a card game on a computer? Just makes no sense to me. Especially a game like this where your advantage lies in what cards you buy.

I will guess you mean in comparison to using physical cards and playing in person. What's the downside to doing it on the computer in your opinion?
