    Ubuntu Gamers

    So, in an attempt to add to our forums....

    Who here is an Ubuntu gamer?

    I've been gaming on Windows for years, and I'm attempting to get more into gaming in Ubuntu. I've got Wine and World of Warcraft on my laptop, and it plays decently (not nearly as well as in Windows, but I blame that on ATi).

    I'm looking into getting more first person shooters loaded into Ubuntu as well (UT2k7, Counterstrike, Doom3, etc.)

    Perhaps we could start having an Ubuntu gaming night as a LoCo team event?

    Re: Ubuntu Gamers

    I rule in Frozen Bubble but other than that I am not a very big gamer. I have heard (and played with a little) of this game though http://www.cubeengine.com/index.php4. I think that a game night would be pretty cool too.
    Thanks,

    Cube looks a lot like Quake 3 arena. I'll download it and give it a shot on my laptop (looks like the screenshots are getting very nice FPS, e.g. upwards of 70FPS).

    I play Gnometris, Ktron, Supertux and tuxkart occasionally, that's about it, I do most of my gaming on the consoles.

    If you like Quake 3 arena, try Open Arena. If you're using Feisty, it's in the repositories.

    Hmm... I love me some starcraft, especially to get back in the groove for the release of Starcraft II . Does anybody know if Warcraft III & Starcraft play well through wine / cedega ?

    Actually, Starcraft plays perfectly with Cedega. With Wine, I haven't tried it, but with Cedega it is so easy to use, and the monthly fee is worth it for the sake of Linux gaming. Starcraft works flawlessly.

    Re: Ubuntu Gamers

    Why use and support Windows games (and their developers), when there are lots of games available for Ubuntu? If you are looking for commercial-quality, there's a list of commercial games here: http://www.linuxgamingworld.com/games-catalog/

    Quake Wars: Enemy Territories just came out, which is awesome. Probably the best FPS out right now. DEFCON and Penumbra Overture are two I would recommend, too.
    Join your a Local Linux User Group or an Ubuntu Local Community Team...
    Purchase your next computer with Ubuntu pre-installed and supported for best hardware compatibility.
    Support companies that support Ubuntu and Linux solutions.
