Stream My Game launches Linux Player !

StreamMyGame.com has released today its free Linux Player, application that will let you play any PC game through a PlayStation 3 with Linux installed on it.

The StreamMyGame Server converts the game’s video and audio into a Game Stream and sends it over a local network to another computer, thus allowing the latter to view and play the game with the StreamMyGame Player. I’ve almost forgot to mention that both the Server and Client solutions are free, so you won’t have to pay anything for them. The machine running the Client app can be a PC, PS3, laptop or Linux device, and it does not need to have the game installed on it. Also, the second computer will not experience any lag at all.

More Games

A smoother, slicker, faster and more high quality gaming experience in every aspect, Cedega 6.0 has brought a whole new level to Linux gaming. But as we all know, supporting new technologies means nothing without the games. So here’s the part you’ve been waiting for: Cedega’s top-voted game, Oblivion, is now fully supported in Cedega 6.0. You no longer have to rely on Oldblivion to play this game; it now works out of the box with 2.0 Shaders. Next in line, World of Warcraft has been getting updates throughout the Cedega 5.2 releases, but with Cedega 6.0’s performance improvements, it feels like a brand new game. Civilization IV benefits from decreased load times and has had a number of bugs and memory issues resolved. Half-Life 2 will be looking and running better than ever, while a number of fixes have kept Steam easy to use despite frequent updates by Valve. We’ve also added support for a number of additional triple-A titles like top hits Need for Speed: Carbon, Madden NFL 07 and Battlefield 2142

Better Performance

Faster file handling, faster load times, and shorter level transitions mean you get more time playing and less time waiting. Since you’ll be spending more time playing, we felt providing FBO improvements that give you even better graphical performance was absolutely essential. You will just plain have a better overall experience in a large number of games. To top it all off, an improved multimedia timer means less of your CPU time is spent mixing and manipulating sound, leaving more for your games and further maximizing your overall experience.

Interstate Outlaws 0.1 Alpha Released!Get The Arms Loaded.


See you on the highway!

Interstate Outlaws is a death match style game using Vehicles instead of the traditional player characters. Loosely based on Activision’s Interstate series, the development team aims to make this game an amazing recreation and beyond. So far it looks really great, though I can’t test it yet as my current system isn’t really up to par.:P
I should be able to post a good review of this for the next release as I’ll be building a new system very very soon. ;):)

Regnum Online MMORPG : Fight for your realm!


“The only thing we require is that you fight for your realm.”


Regnum Online is a free MMORPG with clients for both linux and ***dows based systems. There are 3 realms to choose from, if you are familiar with other MMORPGs this term is a bit different than you are used to. Instead of refering to the server you are playin on the term “realm” in Regnum is used to designate which legion or side you are choosing. These are called Alsius, Ignis and Syrtis. There are currently: 9 player characters, hundreds of quests, the ability to capture forts and castles, and beautiful expansive lands to explore.

  • Regnum offers 3 realms to choose from.
  • 9 fully customizable player characters.
  • An ever expanding number of quests.
  • The ability to capture forts and castles.
  • Expansive lands to explore.
  • Glorious graphical environments in DirectX and OpenGL.
  • Support for Windows and Linux platforms.
  • Community driven development, meaning we develop the game based on players’ feedback.
  • Premium content is available for enhanced game play.

Regnum has left beta after 5 long years of development. From what I can tell Regnum is still free (correct me if I’m wrong) but they have now implemented paid content/services as well. All current players are being reset >.< but accounts will remain active.

Penumbra:Dark world full of horror

PenumbraOverture.png
“Enter a dark world of a three part horror.”

 

Overture is a first person adventure game which focuses on story, immersion and puzzles. Instead of using violence to progress the player has to use his/her wits to guide Philip on his quest to unravel the past. Played from a first person viewpoint, Penumbra is very different from other adventure games.

Not only is it powered by a 3D engine utilising cutting edge technology, it also has an advanced physics system which allow for a never before seen environment interaction. The player can open drawers, pull levers, pick up objects and more using natural mouse movements creating a highly interactive and immersive game world.

The weapon system differs from your average game; swinging a melee weapon is done using the mouse which increases the realistic feel of combat. Fighting enemies is not something best done with brute force though, in most situations fighting is a last resort and the player is often better of using his/her wits. The AI of the enemies will also do its best to hunt and scare the player. The creatures encountered can break down doors, use group co-ordination, interact with the physics and more.
