      Would like to know what the quality of the port is. Will buy it now. Can someone compare the game to the Windows version? (graphics quality)

          One word:

          BENCHMARKS.


          I NEED to see benchmarks of this. Benchmarks with everything there is - the official NVIDIA driver, Nouveau, Catalyst, radeon, Intel, ... everything. I can't wait to see how the drivers deal with such a game.

          I guess it'll be really hard to perform these benchmarks though ...

              That would really be a worth benchmark. Not those 13 years old Quake Engine games.

              I guess this will be the first time I can't max out a game on Linux with my GTX 580 OC, especially now that I have a 1440p monitor.

                  Woah!

                  *NOW* we have a legitimate reason for Mesa to do OpenGL 4.x

                  Anyone know what the official requirements are? Would GL 4.0 suffice or do they use all bells and whistles?

                    I don't know about the use of Metro for benchmark purposes. Can PTS use proprietary games as benchmarks? A 1440p display is nice. I just got a second monitor for a dual setup and will most likely change once 4k rolls-out strong and prices come down. So another 2-3 years I guess.

                    Rofl. That would be interesting for a prequel. Metro: Last Friday Night starring Rebecca Black.

                      Sorry, but it won't run on Rebecca Black until Wayland is ready.

                      Right now, it's Last Friday Night with Katy Perry.

                        Why does the mac version require that insane amount of ram? 8GB vs 2GB for windon'ts?

                          Yes, there are already test profiles for Prey and Enemy Territory and probably more that I can't remember right now. If I'm not mistaken the only requirement is that the benchmark in question has the ability to be automated somehow, including downloading the program, installing, launching in benchmark mode and exiting the process cleanly. Of course this needs a demo version or something like that.

                            Yeah, I would definitely have Katy Perry as my sidekick. I'd make her roar!
