0.9% Linux usage is pretty impressive considering Linux only has at best 2% of the PC marketshare. More likely only around ~1.5-1.75%.

Fallout 1997, Fallout 2 1998 and Torment 1999. Not really seeing the 'saving the CRPG' bit.

I would be interested in seeing the sales numbers for the first year after release for each. I know Torment didn't do as well as they hoped. Not sure how well the Fallouts did compared to BG.

Oh and everyone knows Darklands(1992} started the RTwP craze.

Seems like whenever I see these new CPU articles they're always focused on the tech features. What I want to know is have they addressed the security problems found with speculative execution and hyperthreading. And are they still hiding their Minix 'Mangement Engine' in their chips.

I'd say Intel is doing a mighty fine job of kicking their own ass.

First the reveal of their hidden Minix 'Mangement Engine' which was followed shortly by the Meltdown disclosure. Other fun stuff like a botched microcode patch. Even this week it's "we forgot to mention our 5GHz cpu was overclocked".

You only have a steel sword in Chapter 1. You get handed a silver sword at the start of Chapter 2.

I actually enjoyed the difficulty of the first chapter as once you get the silver sword combat difficulty takes a nose dive for the most part.

Overall I thought the game was OK but nothing as great as a lot of people made it out to be. Lot of bad mechanics like Igni spam or those useless meteorites.

If you have a GOG account they're already filling your spambox. I doubt if a few more from their newsletter is going to matter much if you really want the game.

State of their battery isn't the problem and the results are to be expected. The patches will cause slowdowns on any program that needs to make a lot of kernel calls. And synthetic benchmarks are mainly making kernel calls. So the results are no surprise and of zero real world value. If you want to benchmark you need to be doing real work and ditch the synthetic benchmarks.

Personally I've been running patched Linux kernels since the 3rd and haven't noticed any difference. Haven't tried any VM's yet though.

Troika pretty much killed my enthusiasm for Cain and Boyarsky games. But I'm still hoping they'll put out something decent. And without AI controlled party members.

THQ Nordic is still better than Strategy First.

Did you ever play what came out of that mess, Jagged Edge? Game had some serious flaws but sadly was a better attempt than the more recent ones.

Since THQ Nordic now owns the IP my expectations are extremely low.

Haven't their last releases been Titan Quest DLC and a PC port of a Playstation 2 game?

Wow...Cleve finally released it. Last I heard about this was at least 7 or 8 years ago and he was still programming it in DOS or FreeDOS.

If you're really bored you can dig up literally decades of his 'interesting' posts on the internet. And yes, he's definitely very far right. From what I'm told his neighborhood has a lot of Afrikaners that fled after Apartheid ended so I suppose at least he's surrounded by like minded indviduals.

Stupid trivia. He did do some work with Sir-Tech and there's a theory the mine foreman Calvin Barkmore in Jagged Alliance 2 is based on him.

I enjoyed the beginning of the game and the atmosphere. But like a lot of people just couldn't get past that mid-game grind where you're getting ready to build your 2nd lair.

Good that the German courts aren't finding adblockers illegal. But I still think ABP is pretty shady.
Eyeo requires payment from large companies to have their ads white-listed, and it also insists the "acceptable ads" must conform to certain criteria.

I just did a fresh install of Win 7 and it won't update anymore. I've jumped through all manner of hoops to try and get it to work including the last service rollup they did and it still won't update - even though it says there are updates available. And from my searches on the subject this seems to be very common now. However no one has any problem upgrading to Win10 if they're inclined to. I'm firmly on the side of believing this is absolutely intentional at this point.

Updates for Win7 were broken in December 2015 and again this June. So middle of the Win10 offer and the last month of the offer. Purely coincidental I'm sure.

Anyway as for your problem I just did a reinstall of Win7 for family and hit the same thing. Thought it was odd when a clean install only had 18 updates available. Had to manually install two KB's and so far it's still updating for them. Try looking through this thread and start at the end as the KB's from Jan are now outdated.
Satella broke my Win7.

edit> Called them up and they still had them on there computer. Windows 7 64-bit Home Premium. Full package names:
Windows6.1-KB3020369-x64.msu
Windows6.1-KB3172605-x64.msu

The number of games you have to give up is really just a dealbreaker unless you're some kind of die-hard Linux fan on the level of Richard Stallman

Or somebody that isn't really interested in the AAA titles anymore. My gaming habits have shifted more to old games, niche strategy and indie titles. And a lot of those(if not available on Linux) can be ran via Wine.

I think Linux gaming is kind of a chicken or egg situation. There's not enough Linux users to justify the development cost for the big publishers. But without the games fewer people are less likely to switch to Linux.

And I have no clue what Valve is doing. I'm not a Steam fan but from what I see on the various support forums the Linux Steam client has issues frequently.

IIRC Nordic also picked up 'Jagged Alliance' last year, forget what else they've grabbed. Hope they prove me wrong but I'm expecting mobile games or some other shovelware with a name you recognize slapped on. At best they'll probably be another Kalypso Media type operation.

Don't see any mention of Lordz Game Studio but my prediction is another Panzer General clone.

Wonder why Slitherine went with a square grid for their new engine? Have a look at the last screenshot. Perhaps squares are more iOS friendly?

So what's the difference between Steam and this?

I mean, I get the annoyance at it being built into the OS, but then people discuss SteamOS, which seems the same, no?

Steam OS is open source based, it's basically Linux. That most games don't run natively on Linux is a whole other can of worms.

SteamOS is Linux. Specifically it's Debian with I believe the Gnome3 desktop environment. Also it's not in any way required. The Steam client is available for the majority of Linux distros.

I am less confident with Cyanide though.

Ditto. I've got the impression Cyanide is an assembly line studio that just churns out lots of mediocre games.
