3 Classic First-Person Shooter Games for Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| A true classic and one of the most played online first-person shooter games, 
| Wolfenstein: ET was supposed to be released as a new mod for Return to Castle  
| Wolfenstein, but the single-player part of the game was abandoned and it was 
| released at no cost, as a standalone multiplayer game.

Alien Arena 2008(latest release date October 17th, 2008)

,----[ Quote ]
| Do you like fast paced deathmatch? How about rich, colorful, arcadelike 
| atmospheres? How about...retro Sci Fi? Then you're going to love what Alien 
| Arena 2008 has in store for you! This game combines some of the very best 
| aspects of such games as Quake III and Unreal Tournament and wraps them up 
| with a retro alien theme, while adding tons of original ideas to make the 
| game quite unique.

First-Person Shooter Games for Linux II: Nexuiz and OpenArena

,----[ Quote ]
| Yesterday I reviewed three classic first-person shooter games for Linux, 
| Wolfenstein: ET, UT2004 and ioQuake3. Today I will continue with two other 
| first-person shooter (FPS) games, natively available for Linux: Nexuiz and 
| OpenArena. They both are currently maintained and the wonderful thing about 
| them is that they all are completely open-source, free and usually available 
| in all the major distributions.

Linux Got Game: Alien Arena 2007 Review

,----[ Quote ]
| I find the game very addictive, although I’m a "below average" gamer. I
| always get smoked in single player game even in easy mode. Maybe they gave
| those bots too much AI (hehe). Anyway, I also tried multiplaying over the
| network and I got eaten alive.

The State of the Linux Gaming Industry

,----[ Quote ]
| When I read reports on the Linux gaming industry, I can't help but wonder
| where the Linux gamers are at? Can we find them on the Nintendo Wii or
| perhaps the Playstation 3 (PS3)? After all, I have heard that PS3 actually
| works rather well with Yellow Dog Linux.

Free Games for Linux

.----[ Quote ]
| A round-up of fun Linux diversions.
|
| When people talk about computer gaming these days, they
| invariably mean commercial games running on a Windows platform. Few
| people realize that Linux can be more than just a very good Web or
| file server. Even fewer people are aware of the many open-source or
| otherwise freely available games available for Linux.
