Desperados 3 is now on Mac and Linux, and its first DLC is out

Here's a fun computing fact for you: the Linux term root is derived from the cowboy term rootin' tootin', because the console cowboys who clip-clopped on their mechanical keyboards like a bucking bronco and listened to Fields Of The Nephilim would cry "Yeehaw!" and wave their leather Stetsons when they got system admin rights - a real rootin' tootin' time. How fitting, then, that wonderful…

Feature: A strategic interpretation

The best Steam Festival demos: strategy games

The Oxford English Dictionary defines “strategy” as “any game that centres puzzle-solving or cerebral thought”. I’ve taken that surprisingly liberal definition, ran off to the Steam Summer Games Festival, and come back with an armful of videogames that vaguely fall under that umbrella.
