Comment: Portal 1 is out but not Portal 2 (Score 5, Interesting) 115

Since Phoronix claimed originally it was both just to clear it up only Portal 1 is out for Linux, there are no hints about Portal 2 despite this article stating it and linking to a source for Portal 2 (the source of that info is an idiot). Daily linux gaming news can be found on www.gamingonlinux.com by the way :) where we actually check facts properly ;)

Rustybolts writes "Only Human Studios have started a Kickstarter campaign to help fund their new game Ensign 1. Ensign 1 is a single/ multiplayer space combat game for Linux, PC and Mac with a interesting twist. You can leave your cockpit of your currently boarded ship. You can then leave your ship when docked to explore larger capital ship and choose to pilot any other ship that happens to be laying around the docking area or take control of the capital ship itself.

        I've been into Linux for the better part of 9 years now. I got into it when
        I encountered a piece of software (honestly can't remember exactly what it
        was) which was licenced with the GNU GPL, and after browsing the GNU site
        for a while, I was introduced to Linux. My first distribution was Red Hat
        Linux 9, which I used until Red Hat's free distribution became Fedora. Then
        I tried many different distros and finally settled on Ubuntu.

        I've come to prefer Linux, especially recently, because it's so easy to get
        a system up and running and to just use it! All my favourite developer tools
        are on the platform, and it's been good to me over the years."

+ - Android ICS will support gamepads, HDMI out->

Submitted by

MrSeb writes "Android Ice Cream Sandwich, the update that will marry smartphones and tablets in blissful union come mid-November, will natively support USB gamepads and HDMI output. That’s gamepads plural, and HDMI, as in the connector that your 50-inch 1080p HDTV uses. In other words, if you have an Xbox 360 or PS3 and a few controllers, you’ll be able to turn your ICS-powered Galaxy Nexus into a video games console. Don't get too excited, though: mobile CPUs and GPUs are still no where near current-generation consoles (which are now six years old), and most mobile games really aren't designed for big-screen, gamepad play. Still, if anything, ICS's support for these console-like features mean that Nintendo, Microsoft, and Sony better keep an eye out — in a year or two, there could well be mobile phones or tablets that can produce the gaming experiences we desire."
