,----[ Quote ]
| While not commonly mentioned at Phoronix, Alien Arena is an open-source 
| sci-fi first-person shooter that has been around since 2004 and uses the CRX 
| engine, which is a derivative of the Id's GPL source-code. Version 7.20 of 
| Alien Arena 2008 was released this week and a few features had caught our 
| attention. In addition to a number of game-play improvements, Alien Arena 
| 2008 has received a number of improvements to its graphics renderer with GLSL 
| program management, parallax mapping, new lighting, new shaders, and other 
| work.

,----[ Quote ]
| For those who haven't played Alien Arena before, I recommend you get yourself
| a copy and give it a spin.  It's really top notch and I loved it.  In fact,
| it was so much fun this time that I had to force myself to leave the game.  I
| was having too much fun to put it down!  
| Alien Arena 2008 is available from Planet Arena or your favorite distro's
| software archive.  Alien Arena is available for Windows, Linux and Freebsd,
| and is completely free!  There's also a rapidly growing list of mods
| available to expand, improve, and enhance your gameplay.

| a slightly darker, intense theme, with a mix of hi-tech and retro sci-fi that

| and streamlined, resulting in dramatic performance increases across the

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.

| they’ve been favorites of mine for some time now.  


Does WINE + Linux support more Windows apps than Vista?

,----[ Quote ]
| WINE supports most of the applications which are made for Windows
| 2.0 up to Windows XP. WINE has the ability to run different versions
| of IE, run most of Adobe's products, run World of Warcraft, Half Life
| 2, Microsoft Office 2003, XP, 2000 and 97, Visio, Quicken,
|     * Command & Conquer 3 Tiberium Wars
|     * Need for Speed Carbon

| What about drivers, hardware support, and upgrades?
| Want to upgrade you XP to Vista? no chance. might as well do a fresh
| install and shell out $300.

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

| 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.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
