LINUX GAMING --
If you are looking for a new Linux-native game title to pick up this weekend and are into WW2 FPS games, Day of Infamy is now available.

Day of Infamy formally launched today and it's greeted with same-day Linux support after previously being available via Steam Early Access. This game is made by New World Interactive, the same studio that developed Insurgency -- in fact, Day of Infamy started out based on Insurgency.

With this being another game powered by the Valve Source Engine, the system requirements aren't particularly high and for Linux/SteamOS they list the GeForce 8600/9800 as required or Radeon HD 2600/3600 graphics. Basically any modern card should be fine and the open-source GPU drivers shouldn't cause problems.

More details on this $20 USD World War II video game via SteamPowered.com. If there's enough interest I'll pick up a copy of the game for Linux benchmarking, as while Source is friendly for benchmarking, the results probably won't be interesting given the Source Engine usage and low system requirements.
