    I'm going to do as much as I can to support Linux gaming

I've said it a few times, but in case I haven't shared with you, Good Old Games has a ton of great Linux ports.

I hope Valve's push towards linux will increase momentum.

That's been a big help. Right at about 50% of my Steam library has a Linux version, and it tends to be some of the stuff I've put the most time in: Civ V, Prison Architect, etc. Plus most of the stuff I can play on my laptop too.

I just bought Rimworld and Kingdom: New Lands. These are the first games I've bought in months, and both have Linux versions.

I almost switched to Linux a year ago because they had already released the Linux version of Steam and Dota 2. That was always all I needed from Steam, anyway.

Maybe I'll get to finally play Watch_Dogs, too, when I get a proper PC for it. It's on the account, anyway.

Yep, although a relatively small percentage of my library, which is surprising since it's 99% Sierra adventure games. But Colonization works, which is probably my favorite, as does TIE Fighter. And I could probably get most of the rest working in Play on Linux or just the Linux version of DOSBox.

Speaking of which, I've been meaning to play back through Crusader: No Remorse....
