> SpaceChem, Big Fat Alien BEEP, BOH, Grappling Hook, Hacker Evolution Duality, and Family Farm. Ever hear of any of these titles? Neither have I.
i DID hear of two. and i bought them already. so if you did not hear of them, does not mean that no one else did.
So the current status ought to be:
Gameolith: Opens in 15 hours.
Desura: Coming the next weeks/months.
Steam: Possibility of a Linux version some time after they're done with PS3, unless they want to do something else. Maybe.
Sounds like a clear advantage to Gameolith to me.
And regarding launch titles, what did you expect? The latest AAA titles magically ported from Windows?
Yeah, the negativity from Michael is surprising.
Maybe the store and its launch line-up are not spectacular, but at least there's something happening. Whether this boosts Linux gaming and/or market share remains to be seen (I'm guessing not), but at least there are people out there trying to make Linux succeed. This should not be dismissed.
If anyone is fedup of Mikes posts feel free to join up on the forum at http://www.gamingonlinux.com/index.php
Regular linux gaming news.
If OilRush comes to Gameolith I would be more inclined to buy OilRush.
Totally agree with this.

Can not disagree more!

Really, when I first heard of Desura I thought they where going to do a web store just like that. A pity they where too short sighted for that. The whole Steam way of doing it is there only to empower DRM. It's an evil model.
I'm just saying...
