Hello! Announcement and request Have asked the Admins and they have let me post this here.
I have opened a Linux Online Gaming website, aimed at… Well… Linux games you can play online… Savage, Steel Storm, Dofus, MMORPG’s, Arena match games, and the like. I am not to interested in offline games as I am a social gamer. Also I am hoping in concentrating on a smaller amount of games I can generate a lot of content on the site for each game, rather than being another Linux game list site. I will never get to the size of Ubuntu Gamers Arenas list or be as gaming HUB like as Gaming On Linux. But I hope to have a page at least the size of the Tibia page for each game on the website.
As well as advertising the website, there is also a request here. I am hoping to write install guides and general ‘useful to gaming’ guides for a number of distro’s. Suse, Fedora, Ubuntu, and maybe Mandriva or other popular distros if i have the time. I only have 2 Suse guides up so far (runescape and 32 bit libs install), but I hope to expand on that. If anyone has a guide from installing graphics drivers to game specific install guides, drop me a message on the contact me page. You will get full credit for anything we use, big shiney letters with your name on and stuff.
Thankyou for your attention and thankyou to the admins for letting me post this! Link to the website and a copy of my about us page follows
I am writing the About Us page not only to tell people what we are, but to remind myself of what I am setting out to do with this website. I have written blogs before, and for myself they have been successful. But I start out with good intentions and a focus, by the 3rd month I lose focus and write any old thing. I eventually lose motivation, drive and all focus and the blog falls to the wayside.
This time I am setting out to do one thing, but do that one thing well from the start. An online gaming website for Linux. I am not particularly interested in single player offline games. I like to hunt monsters and have party’s with other people. Not AI’s. I do play some offline games. But yeah, online stuff really is where its at for me. ^^
In addition to that there are several fantastic gaming websites already that cover single player games. Ubuntu Gamers Arena is in my opinion the best. If your after a comprehensive game list with install guides for Ubuntu, that’s the website you want. So saying that, it is clear there are already good gaming websites out there. If I was to just make another gaming website I would just be re inventing the wheel (and to be honest, I would not make one as full and good as Ubuntu Gamers Arena). So what would be the point? Well there would not be one… Which is another reason why I want to focus on the ‘Online Gaming’ aspect of the Linux gaming world.
Windows, Mac and Wine users, Windows and Mac games hold no interest to me, I don’t use Wine, I don’t own a Windows PC or a Mac. Most of the games on this website are ported to Mac and Windows, so your more than welcome to make a home here. Write guides, post on the forums, or just browse any info we have. But please don’t request anything Windows or Mac specifically related. This is a Linux Online gaming website.
The forum, currently there more as an after thought. I would hope to make it active at some point but I always find online community’s hard to manage. If it takes off, great, if not, well, not that worried.
Lastly my partners joining in on this website too and giving me a hand cause well… She is a gaming nerd… Ruddy fantastic! I got a prize wife here! grins
I hope you enjoy your stay here! Have fun and game well!
