[News] Linux Gamers Get Love with 3 New High-end Games

Hash: SHA1

All three games available for a special price

| Frictional Games today announced that Penumbra: Requiem is now available for 
| Mac and Linux systems. Penumbra: Requiem is an expansion which will tie up 
| loose ends from previous installments and as Philip progresses he will 
| encounter various characters from his past.    


Improve Your Intelligence with Brain Workshop

,----[ Quote ]
| There is a single dependency (apart from Python 2.5+) that is required: 
| AVbin. AVbin is a wrapper around ffmpeg that the Brain Workshop developers 
| use to play the sounds of the game. As of this writing, the version Brain 
| Workshop uses is avbin-linux-x86-32-7. Be sure to check the Brain Workshop 
| Linux Download page for updated information.    
| [...]
| So, is Brain Workshop better than other brain training programs? The research 
| that has been done suggests that it is better at actually improving your 
| intelligence. That is a good thing. However, it is not as fun to play in my 
| opinion as other brain games. So which is better? The exercise you actually 
| do because it's fun? Or the exercise that is better for you, but which you 
| don't play as much?     


Application/games barriers are town down.


Gaming on Linux – What are your options?

| The benefit of having these games natively installed is the fact that it's
| easy to buy, install and play. It also allows you to play games online
| against your Windows using friends. Standout titles include:
| Quake 1, 2, 3 and 4
| Doom 3
| Unreal Tournament 2003 and 2004
| Enemy Territory: Quake Wars
| Neverwinter Nights 1 + Expansions (though not NWN2)
| ...and very soon Unreal Tournament 3.


One live DVD, one ton of Linux games

,----[ Quote ]
| Contrary to popular belief, there is no shortage of games on the Linux
| platform. While the LinuX-Gamers compilation includes some real gems, there's
| no way all of the noteworthy games in the Linux library could fit on one DVD.
| For that reason, I hope that compilations of Linux games on live DVDs becomes
| a trend that will continue, and additional volumes will be released with
| different game sets.
| LinuX-Gamers is perfect for those who want to build a portable arcade or try
| out Linux games without repartitioning a hard drive. There isn't any desktop
| functionality here, but that's OK -- this is a gamer-specific distribution
| that isn't intended to help you get your work done.


Introduction to Linux Gaming

,----[ Quote ]
| When you think of Linux, you probably think of open source software and
| security, but not gaming. Most people think if you are into gaming, Windows
| is your only option. A few years ago this might have been the case but not
| anymore.
| So, if you are a Linux power user, or just prefer Linux, here are a few of
| your options for playing games on your Linux box.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
