CS:CZ Official; More Valve Games Coming To Linux
Phoronix: CS:CZ Official; More Valve Games Coming To Linux
Valve has shared that they're now official up to 80 Linux games that are available through the native Steam Linux client...
Great game. I still play it. Same mechanics as CS 1.6 but with added bots and optional higher resolution models and touched up maps. The old, untouched maps are there as well. The single point of suckage for this game was the addition of the riot shield. Whoever's responsible for that must have been on crack >.<
Waiting for CS:GO. Already got it for Windows, but rebooting always sucks. I want GO on Linux dammit! Now! :-)
Still waiting for DOTA 2. Hopefully it'll be the next game they port, it's already the most popular one on Steam and the amount of players continues to grow rapidly (50k in the last month alone, as far as I know). Also it's still in Beta, so it's under heavy development anyway.
I'm not a huge fan of CS (though I'm currently becoming obsessive of it in 'Gun Game' mode...), but I'm really waiting for L4D2 - hopefully soon!
An interesting thing to notice is that CS:CZ was previously NOT available for OSX.
This really shows how serious Valve is with bringing *all* their releases to Linux (compared with their OSX support).
Hoping for L4D2 and Dota2 next
Also, if anyone from Valve is out there *hint* *hint* *hint* cs:cz sale *hint* *hint* *hint*.
There was already one, I think. A Linux sale where you could buy the stuff for 30% of the price or something like that.

L4D2 was not supose to be the first valve title on linux?
I am waiting for it so long...
They aren't in a hurry yet, but Valve needs to bring their most recent games to Linux to make it more relevant.
DOTA 2, CS: GO, L4D2, Portal 2, and possibly a HL3. With that, and showing that the Linux gaming market share is growing, and fast, will make more publishers to invest money into Linux ports.
Awesome job, Valve!!!!
