    Good thing Phoronix missed the official announcement of the Linux version for 30th August 2013. Journalism, ho!

    Speculation is better than official information.

    It's appeared yet you can't actually play it until the 30th. It seems it downloaded the windows version as it has lots of .dll and .exe files in the NS2 folder?

    wow, that's awesome! I thought I'd have to wait 5 more days. Great! Interestingly, I didn't notice it in my Steam library until I read the article.

    I would love to see Dead Space (1,2,3) for Linux.

    Or rather - don't poop on the genuine, extraordinary experience by watching gameplay videos with constant clown-commentary.

    On the phoronix news. Phoronix has to be "the one true place to find false/erroneous linux-on-steam-related release news" Still best Linux news portal I know.

    oh, it seems that the game isn't fully there. At least I can't start it (it says something about a missing executable). Damn.

    Also there are .exe files in the game's directory, so I guess they just took all their Windows stuff and put it on the Linux side for now.
