  • RE: Steam Slashes Prices, Offers Killer Holiday Deals

    The HumbleIndieBundle2 is still on sale for about another day , and now as a bonus, if you pay more than the average (currently $7.72) - they give you the first HumbleIndieBundle (6 more games) free! It's a great way to contribute to Childs Play, the EFF, and these indie developers - so check it...

  • RE: Steam Slashes Prices, Offers Killer Holiday Deals

    DON'T MISS THIS: Speaking of Steam - The HumbleIndieBundle2 , where you get to name your own price, also provides you with a Steam code (and a Desura code) when you buy. Or, you can also download the games (DRM free) directly from the page whose URL they e-mail you after you buy. You can download...

  • Re: Counterstrike Source Overhaul

    Yeah, I'm hoping the same thing but trying to keep my expectations in check. Valve's silence (rather than outright denial) plus the partially-functioning alpha version of Steam for Linux found on their site shows that at least they're considering it. They probably don't want to commit...

  • Steam for Linux - IT'S OFFICIAL (maybe).

    This just might be the best thing to ever happen to Linux: According to several sites that have been breaking the Steam for Mac news: "Valve has also confirmed that it will make Steam available to Linux users in the coming months." [emphasis mine] ( http://www.telegraph.co.uk/technology/apple...

  • Re: Steam for Linux for real this time?

    Yeah, I'm pretty psyched too. Unfortunately, there's no way to tell if this is just a pet project of one of the devs, or if there's a set internal direction to eventually support the Linux desktop. I guess we won't really know until Valve makes an announcement. Working on Linux support...

  • Re: Steam for Linux for real this time?

    Oh my... I saw another post where a guy made some educated guesses at the URL and found THIS FILE out on Valve's servers. I was able to download the files from the public/client directory of their store.steampowered.com server. In addition to the standard Steam directories, they contain a directory...

  • Re: Steam for Linux for real this time?

    [quote user="TaylorKarras"] But I don't think gaming companies will be making games for Linux. I don't know if Valve will jump on the linux bandwagon either. [/quote] You do know that they already make the Source Dedicated Server for Linux, eh? (I run it on my arcade cabinet for CS...

  • Steam for Linux for real this time?

    I'm not going to hold my breath hoping this means... what I hope it means, but I saw this post over at Phoronix , that included the following part of the shell script used to bootstrap Steam on a Mac: if [ "$UNAME" == "Darwin" ]; then PLATFORM=osx32 # prepend our lib path to LD_LIBRARY_PATH...

  • Re: Left 4 Dead

    [quote user="Crisis Causer"] I ran it at max settings + 4xAA 8xAF at 1920x1080. I didn't have a framerate display, but it was fine. This was with only one of my Radeon 3850s. It's a Source game, so it's not stressful. [/quote] I have a 9800GTX+, which should should smoke the 3850...

  • Re: Left 4 Dead

    I downloaded and installed the demo via Steam. Runs pretty slow under Linux+Wine unless you dial down the video settings, but it sure does look good.
