LINUX GAMING --
Metro 2033 Redux and Metro Last Light Redux have finally surfaced for Linux gamers.

The Metro Redux Bundle is now available for Steam on Linux gamers. We've been looking forward to the Linux versions of these games for several months and now they've finally arrived. The "redux" version offers various updates to the original versions of the game while Metro 2033 Redux should be particularly interesting for Linux gamers as it's the first time the 2033 version is coming to Linux -- the non-redux Metro: Last Light meanwhile came out for Linux last year.

In celebration of the redux versions of Metro Last Light and Metro 2033 now being available, through this weekend these games powered by the 4A Engine are being sold at 66% off. More details at SteamPowered.com.

The Metro Redux Bundle requires graphics drivers with OpenGL 4 support (thus only the binary blobs for now) and also 64-bit Linux. (Hopefully the Linux redux versions of these titles will include the company's integrated benchmarking support that lacked from the Linux Last Light version that was found meanwhile on the Windows game for offering benchmark support. I was told by Valve that 4A Games was looking to bringing the benchmarking support to Linux so I guess we'll see now.)
