Since Worm Animation have released a new video for #BeatTheGame. We decided to share some news, because Linux, Mac and #Windows will be support. And since the focus is on the game’s hero, Mistik. While also including the #games mysterious tree figure, Moss. The video showcases Beat The Game’s beautiful hand-drawn character style. Since this draws influence from the European surrealists like Dali and Ernst. While also making the Worm Animation’s pedigree in film animation clearly apparent. Most notably their contribution to Oscar nominated short film, Gopher Broke.

So Mistik is a music producer who makes beats for a living. Since he’s equipped with his trusty sampler, he travels to create new sounds out of everyday objects. From a simple wooden stick to a metal can. Mistik doesn’t adhere to our concepts of dimension, distance, time or space. This is because he lives in a dream world, a musician’s dream.
Beat The Game’s second character, the hulking Moss. Hence the bassline maker who lives underground, only making himself visible at night. While Moss doesn’t make entire tracks. Therefore his basslines are exactly what Mistik needs. Give him the tracks that extra kick and bump in energy. So together and with other characters. Mistik and Moss form a colourful cast in a bizarre world driven by the love of music.

Albion Online new Development Diary video

albion online new development diary video in linux gaming news

Since we continue to follow the progress of Albion Online. Hence this is a new class of MMORPG gaming. Currently making strides towards the July 17, 2017 launch for Linux, Mac and Windows PC. So the news that the #game #developers have strong ties to their fans is no surprise. Due to the #release of their newest entry in a series of development videos. Which should have to keep those early adopters well informed. While also helping new players situate themselves in the world of Albion.
So in this latest news log, game director Robin Henkys tackles some important change. Hence the redesign of the lawless Outlands area. Which is set to roll out with their Hector update on June 7, 2017.

Development Video Summary:

  • Feeling that there was not enough action happening in the Outlands. Sandbox has decided to remove both cities and harbors in the area which weren’t providing enough crafted goods for smaller guilds. Instead, a single central hub is going to be set up. Requiring all current players to remove their funds from Outlands banks else risk losing their money.
  • A central portal will be set in the middle of Caerleon. So player can use it to jump to Outland exits with cooldowns that allow for balanced gameplay. The entrance can lead to anywhere in the Outlands, with no cost, but will bind players to their chosen gate for a period based on the difficulty and location of said door.
  • Currently under testing is a map feature allowing smaller groups to detect bands of 10+ players. Creating a more balanced gameplay. So smaller parties will not have to worry about being overrun by large groups. Giving them the option to skirt around to avoid combat.
  • Rewards in the Outlands are increasing to make it a more attractive place to go outside of the Royal Continent. Each section has a greater rate of enchanted resources, the highest is available in the higher Outlands.
  • Tier 8 resources will only be available in Watchtower territories. Which can be raided by outsiders.
  • + More!

How to get Steam for Linux on a PlayStation 4 video

How to get Steam for Linux on a PlayStation 4

So as #Linux #gamers, we might not be in that era of taking a PlayStation 4 to a shop to get a mod chip. Yet ever since Sony announced the ability to run the OS on the original PlayStation 3, them removed it. Since then people are keen on the idea. So why not show how to get Steam for Linux on a PlayStation 4?

The annual Chaos Communication Congress shows that the PS4 is definitely not a PC. While this makes things difficult, it does not mean that Linux will not run on the PS4.
So hackers were first showing off the PS4 running Linux last year. Yet it was not until this year’s conference that more in-depth methods arrose. Most of this explanation will be fairly straight forward for most Linux gamers. Now, the console is layered, which is the technical breakdown of the PS4’s hardware. Now to mention the engineering and the framework underneath.

Last year, we demonstrated Linux running on the PS4 in a lightning talk – presented on the PS4 itself. But how did we do it? In a departure from previous Console Hacking talks focusing on security, this year we’re going to focus on the PS4 hardware, what makes it different from a PC, and how we reverse engineered it enough to get a full-blown Linux distro running on it, complete with 3D acceleration.

Hence for anyone with the requisite knowledge, careful listeners, there is still plenty of interesting information. As an example, the PS4 relies on a separate ARM chip to run a whole seperate operating system. This is used downloading updates.
Presenter Marcan at the end of the presentation launched Steam. Therefore breaking into running around the first level of Portal 2.
