LINUX GAMING --
Virtual Programming has published their latest in-development titles for Mac and Linux, which includes the Overlord and Saints Row games making it over from Windows.

While many Linux gamers particularly don't like Virtual Programming Linux game ports due to their use of the eON wrapper layer, which started out as a train wreck but has improved for recent games like DiRT Showdown, they're bringing more games over to Linux.

Updated on the Virtual Programming site as in-development is Overlord I, Overlord II, Saints Row 2, and Saints Row 3. If you want to learn more about these forthcoming games for Linux, go visit VPLTD.com.

The Saints Row games are considered in beta right now for Linux while the Overlord ports are listed as alpha. Once available, if they have an auto-benchmarking mode I'll work on running tests to see how they perform under Linux with various GPUs and drivers. No system requirements have been listed yet to see if they'll be supported by AMD Catalyst or the open-source Mesa/Gallium3D drivers.
