nominations for the last game starts from today and will end on the 17th July. just post your nominations and after the 17th the list will be trimmed and the voting starts(hopefully a poll if not through comments). try to nominate games that work on all 3 platforms and that most IPX own/is free those are more guidelines then rules but its best to not leave anyone out of the fun

CS:GO for linux beta available and left 4 dead is now uncut

CS:GO finally available as a beta

i figured out how to block steam from downloading it from any server but telstra so i could actually install it with my 8 GB of data :) it runs well didnt see any performance issues. mic’s dont work yet(was the same with L4D2 in its early beta) and i had the ui screw up a few times but not a bad beta release

also L4D2 is now uncut in Australia. if you got the low violence version theres a free dlc to switch…. so much better uncut!!!
