    Metro: Last Light is out for LINUX NOW! Get it while it's nice and hot! ;)

    Metro: Last Light - out for LINUX now!





    It is the year 2034.Beneath the ruins of post-apocalyptic Moscow, in the tunnels of the Metro, the remnants of mankind are besieged by deadly threats from outside – and within. Mutants stalk the catacombs beneath the desolate surface, and hunt amidst the poisoned skies above. But rather than stand united, the station-cities of the Metro are locked in a struggle for the ultimate power, a doomsday device from the military vaults of D6. A civil war is stirring that could wipe humanity from the face of the earth forever. As Artyom, burdened by guilt but driven by hope, you hold the key to our survival – the last light in our darkest hour.

    wish I had a better rig, currently only have a C2D E4300 OC'd to 2.4Ghz with 2GB DDRII 577 RAM and an 8400GS OC'd to 520Mhz from 460Mhz. I think i'll wait till I get a better rig.

    I enjoyed the first game, this one looks pretty good as well. Honestly it is really nice that there are more "AAA" games running natively.
    Natural Selection 2 and Dota 2 have been great fun so far though.

    Thumbs up Re: Metro: Last Light is out for LINUX NOW! Get it while it's nice and hot! ;)

    Some pretty serious games (and no, not all of them are first-person shooters) have come out this year for Linux, making 2013, as I so presciently predicted early this year, The Year Of Linux Gaming. And 2014 looks even brighter. Finally our favorite platform is gettng the attention it deserves.

    Mad props to Gabe Newell, of course, along with all the developers.

    This is a driver related issue, isn't it? What hardware and driver (version) + OS + kernel are you running on?
