How to Play Classic Console Games in Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| If youâre reading this, thereâs a good 
| chance you grew up with classic video game 
| consoles like the NES and Sega Genesis. For 
| years Windows users have been enjoying high 
| quality game emulation software, but many 
| of the Linux options have been buggy or 
| incomplete. Itâs time to take a look at 
| where things stand when it comes to playing 
| console games in Linux. Here at 
| MakeTechEasier, weâve touched on console 
| game emulation here and there, but never 
| done a guide covering multiple systems. 
| Today, weâll show you how to run games for 
| NES, SNES, Genesis, original Playstation, 
| and Dreamcast.

Interactive Ideas boosts gaming offering

,----[ Quote ]
| There's something to be said for having a 
| diverse product portfolio. As we heard 
| earlier in the year, North London 
| distributor Interactive Ideas has been 
| doing very nicely on the back of its strong 
| Linux for enterprise offering. But at this 
| time of year, its peripherals business 
| comes to the fore.


Icculus on Aquaria

,----[ Quote ]
| Ryan âicculusâ Gordon updated his .plan 
| file this week with an update on the 
| Aquaria port:
|     This is almost done, but Iâm crunching 
|     on something very important. Hopefully 
|     Iâll start passing some Linux builds to 
|     Bit-Blot for testing in ~2 weeks when 
|     this other project is off my shoulders. 



Widelands (RTS Game): An Open Source Settlers I & II Remake

,----[ Quote ]
| Widelands is an open source (works on
| Windows, Linux and Mac OSX) real-time
| strategy game, built upon the SDL and other
| open source libraries. If you knew Settlers
| I & II (Â Bluebyte), then you already have a
| rough idea what Widelands is all about
| because Widelands is heavily inspired by
| those two games.


Egoboo is a fun 3D Rogue-like game for Windows, Mac, and Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| Egoboo is a (90 megabyte!!) 3D Rogue-like
| game. Rogue is a very, very old game -- the
| original adventure game, really -- and
| Egoboo builds on its legacy, throws in a
| little hack-and-slash... and it's even a bit
| of a RPG! There is loot, there are gribbly
| monsters that are out to eat your face, and
| there are plenty of pretty zones to explore
| (plus there's a map editor!)


Linux users: frag your online enemies without installing an application!

,----[ Quote ]
| This afternoon after I got home from work, I
| fragged my online enemies! What makes this
| remarkable is that I use Ubuntu Linux, and as
| everyone know gaming doesn't work on Linux
| (tongue-in-cheek comment there). What is even more
| amazing is that I didn't install an application to
| do this.


Quake Live

,----[ Quote ]
| Also, Quake Live is surprisingly 100% more fun than Farcry 2. Sad
| but true.


Quake Live - Redefining the online gaming

,----[ Quote ]
| Quake Live is great fun. It's a tremendous invention, game
| quality and graphics notwithstanding. What more, it looks
| well, it plays well. You get reasonable graphics, lots of
| fast-paced killing action, for free, inside your browser, on
| any operating system. It's a dream come true!

| available both as a boxed product everywhere, and as a downloadable and
