GameSpot's website looks like GiantBomb now, but this not the only "new" environment I am about trying out these days: I've also been installing Linux's OpenSUSE 13.1 beta (http://software.opensuse.org/developer/en) as alternate system on my Windows 7 PC, as well as Steam (ever so well supported: http://software.opensuse.org/package/steam) and finally downloaded a couple of Linux-able games I bought recently with the Humble Indie Bundle 9 http://blog.humblebundle.com/post/60946676059/introducing-humble-indie-bundle-9 (in fact, I bought the bundle also to this purpose):
Needless to say that all these games are as good running a Linux system than on Windows or Mac:
- Rocketbirds: Hardboiled Chicken (Ratloop Asia), Genre: Strategy, Indie, Simulation
You play as Hardboiled Chicken set out on a mission to assassinate the evil leader of a totalitarian penguin regime in a cinematic platforming adventure game in either solo or co-op campaign.
- A Virus Named TOM (Misfits Attic), Genre: Action, Indie, Strategy
You take control of TOM, a virus created for the purpose of infiltrating Dr. X's futuristic city in an "infectious" action puzzle game.
- FTL: Faster than Light (Subset Games), Genre: Strategy, Indie, Simulation
You experience the atmosphere of running a spaceship for the humble task of saving the galaxy with multiple solutions for every encounter.
- FEZ (Polytron Corporation), Genre: Strategy, Indie, Simulation
You play as Gomez in an Escherian journey using your ability to navigate a mysterious 3rd dimension from four different classic 2D perspectives.
- Trine 2: Complete Story (Frozenbyte), Genre: Strategy, Indie, Simulation
You join Amadeus the Wizard, Pontius the Knight, and Zoya the Thief as one of Three Heroes in an animated action-puzzle-platforming adventure set in a fairy tale world.
Well, while I didn' t finish either of those games yet all seem to be working well so far except some problems I have with in-game sound, but which seems to be due to the hardware configuration (I'm using various devices) rather than Steam.
So let's see, there'll be more Linux games be available in 2014, I guess, but for now: any comments welcome!
