I'd better play Windows DRM free games with Wine, rather than encouraging Valve to continue their Steam DRM (even if it's minimal). It's not "as good as it gets". Humble Bundle gets better - no DRM at all. So Valve could ditch their DRM if they'd wanted to, but since they aren't interested, I think GOG should be a better offering. I wish they'd start selling Linux titles as well.
Looks like CD Projekt Red (Witcher / Cyberpunk) might be interested in making their games for Steambox in the future, which means they'll work on Linux ports.
Adam Badowski: I think the Steambox will be awesome. Because Valve is a digital platform holder, the final contact with the customer will be as easy as possible. That's why we're looking forward to it. We're in contact with Steam, so we're going to be engaged in the process.
As for other companies games, some developers sell their games directly via their site. There are also competing game services for Linux that Larabel is too much of a dick to advertise for, these are Desura and Gameolith and both had over a year on Steam.
There's only one Valve game that I want and haven't bought yet; Left4Dead 2. I cannot wait for it to be released! :cool:
That's excellent news !
Now i just which that Company of Heroes franchise was also ported to Linux and also World In Conflict : Soviet Assault ....personally i consider those two the best EVER RTS, YMMV.
(Yeah they work in WINE but there is a performance hit , so, i want Linux native damn it)
