    It's not even possible to change tax values. I'll probably stick to Freeciv for now.

    I have 2 AMD cards a 7870 and a 6550, both run fantastic.
    Also a Nvidia and Intel the former of which has given me the most problems, even though the software to tweak it is miles ahead of AMD's CCC offerings.


    I'm in line for Civ 5.... I can't wait.

    XCOM:EU would be very interesting to see on Linux. It's Unreal Engine 3, so porting is definitely doable, and with Enemy Within they might have had an idea to make a re-release that also includes Linux support.

    But that's wishful thinking, and I wouldn't buy it either way due to it being Steam-exclusive. Instead, I'm having a very good time playing UFO: Alien Invasion (version 2.5 is currently a release candidate).

    You seem to have played some Civ games in the past so why are you saying such silly things? Every Civ game has a setup - set city-states to 0 and presto! they are removed. That said city states are one of the best changes in Civ 5 greatly adding to strategic depth.

    Yeah, the original UFO was great... that said, I actually liked Firaxis' take, provided you play with no reloading and on high difficulty it is very challenging. And looks good too, my wife walking into the room thought it was a FPS

    Very good news, because Civ5 and UFO are very popular games. However, I found them to be very simplified and thus uninteresting. In example civ5 is like 1/5 of Civ:CTP2. I would expect new games to be more complex.. When comes to UFO:EU it has very boring and simplified battles.

    Rome Total War II: http://news.softpedia.com/news/Civil...r-387196.shtml
    I know for a fact that Rome II is coming because well before Rome II released, CA made a big statement that Rome II would receive 'free additional operating system formats' in the future which obviously could only mean one thing. No one seemed to pick up on that news though, they were too busy talking about the other things CA stated. Rome II is a broken game though, and every week receives a humongous patch which clearly shows it's practically an unfinished game still in development, so I wouldn't expect Rome II for Linux until the game is fixed.

    And here I am wanting to play the game for the LAN party on the 12th of October using a Linux box...

    Come on, I had to try and find some negative angle, right?

    I wonder why we haven't seen soem of the dosbox wrapped games, like the old xcom's, on the linux market.

    Then call me crazy, as I would love to be able to play classics like the KotOR games or GTA: San Andreas (or my many other games that will never get ported) without having to close down my native Steam client and fire up one of my Wine Steam clients. It would be real useful and I do hope once the dust settles and Linux/SteamOS adoption has gotten underway that they do in fact add such a feature.

    I am really looking forward to them getting further along with this, I've been wanting to replay Morrowind a bit for a while now, but am holding out to do so via OpenMW. It is getting pretty close already, but I am thinking I might wait another few months before giving a proper go at trying it out.

    Another great thing about OpenMW is that since Morrowind and Oblivion both used Gamebryo it shouldn't take nearly as much effort to extend it to include Oblivion support once they are done with Morrowind. The same can't be said for Skyrim though unfortunately, but there is enough similarities between the games to even be a good starting point for that as well. Would be nice to see it one day change from OpenMW to OpenES.
