Smokin' Guns a free Old West game for Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| Smokin' Guns is a free FPS and Open Source 
| game that take you back to the old time of 
| the 'Old West'. Based on the engine of 
| Quake 3, Smokin' Guns has all the 
| attributes of a traditional FPS: play in 
| solo or network, a complete arsenal of 
| weapons, a dozen charts and several modes 
| of play.


World of Goo Price Dropped To Anything

,----[ Quote ]
| 2D Boy's Ron Carmel spoke out against DRM 
| at the Game Developers Conference earlier 
| this year, stating that "It's a waste of 
| time. You just end up giving the DRM 
| provider money. Anything that is of 
| interest gets cracked, and the cracked 
| version ends up being a better user 
| experience than the legit version because 
| you don't have to input in some 32-
| character serial number."
| This latest offer seems to show evidence 
| that 2D Boy is all about the consumer's 
| experience - and having played World of Goo 
| extensively, I can add that the games are 
| all about that too.


Name Your Price For World Of Goo



More copies of World of Goo sold when GNU/Linux version was released than any
other day

| This is the kind of update that deserves its own blogpost just to make this
| heard. It is excellent news and I believe sends out quite a strong message to
| anyone who is paying attention.


Hereâs to reaching the âGames for Linuxâ tipping point

,----[ Quote ]
| To get Games for Linux (no TM yet) we need to reach a tipping point, either
| on the side of Gamers which will convince the Publishers that there is a
| market, or on the side of Publishers which will allow enough gamers to try
| the OS out without much gaming withdrawal. Lets hope that the results for the
| WoG experiment will be another small push towards that point.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
