Another update is out now for Quake 4, though this time it's solely a Linux binary update. Quake 4 v1.3-2 for Linux has been released due to the v1.2 to v1.3 installer having a few issues, and then there were also SMP problems. The updated patches are available from id Software.

One month after LGP has announced that their port of Egosoft's X2 The Threat had went gold, the game is finally available. Orders are shipping right now, after the previous May 19 shipping date, and this space title can be ordered through Linux Game Publishing or the distribution outlets. Our X2 Linux content is still available, and LGP is still offering up a free demo version of the game.

When we had heard that X2 - The Threat would finally be ported over to Linux from the talented folks at LGP (Linux Game Publishing) we were simply ecstatic. However, now that the first BETA of the game has reached its closed testing community we are even more rhapsodic. With the game still in development stages, there are of course a few bugs but many of these gaming volunteers have found poor frame-rate performance with their various systems.

?  Getting lost in Acton, with two suitcases full of expensive kit, in the dark, isn't fun. Especially when you've been carrying the heavy kit about on the train and tube for an hour and a half. However, that is how I, with my expert navigational skills, found myself at 10 PM on Friday night, headed for the Intel Bloodline LAN somewhere in the local area. I teamed up with HEXUS.net forum regular mgh0 who had just arrived at a nearby tube stop, and with our unerring combined sense of direction, we made it to Black Island Studios, just off the A40.

I was going to Intel/Jolt Bloodline for the proper LAN experience - poor eating, sleeping & hygiene arrangements; a room full of sweaty Counter-Strike players; and playing games into the small hours - but I had one little... eccentricity... to my arrangements:

Most Windows gamers felt the height of the driver wars between NVIDIA and ATI about 18 months ago - driver "optimizations", rushed releases and performance fluctuation. Linux remained relatively untouched during this process, getting an update once every 4 or 5 months with only the minimum enhancements. It looks, however, that things are about to change - and very soon. When NVIDIA and ATI both released their newest Linux drivers within a couple of days of each other, we started to get the feeling that there was some healthy competition brewing. However, memories of rushed-to-release drivers haunt us - and we hope that trend hasn't spilled over into Linux.

Earlier this year, our Linux Comes to the Desktop article caused a stir, when we stated that gaming on a Linux platform remained a limited proposition. Now it is time to detail why this is the case. We will explore what is the best you can hope for when you opt for the penguin to play Unreal and Doom III. We will also look at why Linux lovers must be contented with the state of things -- for the time being, that is, because things are looking up for the Linux gaming crowd.
