    Smile is there any gaming cd or dvd available for ubuntu.

    hi.
    I have Ubuntu 12.10 and i know this may sound silly but i was wondering if there is a gaming dvd/cd (like amnesia : the dark descent) available in market or online i am asking this because i have a limited internet connection so i can't download games from internet.

    Neverwinter Nights (rpg too, based on d&d) is being sold on cd with linux installer on it. Not sure if you have to download any patch though... but for sure there is native linux installation option.

    Some Linux Games also have a physical Retail Release. Even tough there aren't that many tbh. Here are some of them.

    Oil Rush
    Tiny & Big in: Grandpa's Leftovers
    Tribal Trouble

    Doom 1-3 (BFG), Quake 1-4, ETQW, Unreal Tournament 2003-2004, Freespace, etc... also have Linux Versions but you need to download an additional Linux Installer or Reimplementation from the Internet to make them work.

    Tuxgames is also a great Site if you are looking to get the older Loki or LGP Games.

    Neverwinter Nights' Linux engine is terrific, and is installable from disc:

    Note that you'll have to download some rather large patches (the 1.69 patch is nearly 500 KB) for a complete installation, also the Community Expansion Patches (rather large, as well). A lot of downloading, but the final installed game is certainly worth the time spent downloading.
