R.I.P ID software

Qlive Forum Link

ID software has been getting worse and worse past few years but this seems to be the end for Linux support for quake live(from what i read it never worked right on linux anyway) and probably the end for linux and Id software(all their linux devs are gone now even carmack has moved onto the occulus(his position is more cosmetic in ID now))

kinda weird they took Quake3 which was great and broke it and made quake live in the browser and now they are taking it out of the browser and dropping honestly the best feature of quake 3(cross platform support). atleast ioquake3 is still as awesome as ever and steam is doing wonderful things for linux(they just announced total war: rome 2 out on linux next year)

2013 Steam Sales Dates and metro:last light out now for Linux

lets get the important news out first:

Metro Last light was released for linux. no beta no announcement just a release. it should be a cool game i have seen a playthrough of metro 2033 so im not lost in this one and that game looked awesome. this one people say isnt as good as 2033 but still should be awesome and well worth getting(im downloading it now 8 GB :( )

no more room in hell http://www.nmrih.com/steam/install – direct download link

NOTE: doesnt need a source game to play.

Linux Occulus RiFT support is now in TF2

after a few issues i finally got TF2 working with my rift after they announced Linux support with the Halloween update and all i can say is WOW

you cant read any writing on the screen because its low res but who cares the 3d is absolutely AWESOME you can look down and see the scout small feet running like crazy you can even look to the left and shoot people to the right :)


Tux :) i swear it looks so much better in 3d


RIFTCEPTION – i wonder if the glowing screen is an indication of if im using the rift
