If you havn't played any of these games yet... you need to!
Great stuff here and totally DRM free!


After your purchase the bundle there are Linux binaries provided for each game.
I have installed Psychonauts, Brutal Legend and Costume Quest in Mint 13 and they run GREAT with my GeForce 550 Ti.

I'm glad developers are starting to take notice of us Linux gamers!

Totally! I'm loving Brutal Legend and Costume Quest.
I already had Stacking from GOG.com and I bought Psychonauts years ago and still have it on CD. So now I have downloaded .bin files for each of them.
Friggin awesome!

I hope Double-Fine keeps up with the Linux support...

I'm playing Psychonauts right now... the only side affect I am having is the audio randomly has static and echoe's. Then it will randomly work just fine.

I'm sure it an audio thing... alsa or pulseaudio.... not sure

Id bet on Pulse. I have the same issue when running it through pulse. Pulse is getting better, though. lol

I was guessing the same thing. Oh well...

Finally finished Costume Quest... well... kinda
I couldn't beat the final boss and really didn't have the patience to do it.
What a cool game!!!

Still playing Brutal Legend and it keeps getting cool-er. Not a huge fan of the strategy aspects, but Double-Fine made the tactics really fun and arcadish enough to keep me interested.

Still not done with Psychonauts... man this game is long! I'm at the final boss, but am so tired of all the trick jumping and strange camera controls... don't get me wrong... its fun, but such a long game that it gets old.

Reading? Man I don't have time for reading... so many games to play.
I actually just started Mass Effect 1 in Windows.
I'm really liking it, was getting a bit frustrated when I couldn't find the elevator to C-Sec Academy, but now I'm out exploring galaxies.

hahahaha. I mean, right now, Im on ME3, and just about done with that, and then I have the rest of the assassins creed games to play (brotherhood, rev, and 3), then I can move on to newer games. These ones have been plaguing me for too long. hahaha

Oh man, I know what you mean... when you get into RPG and exploration games, it just takes way to long to do everything.
I still have Assassins' Creed Brotherhood & Revelations to play.
I have Mass Effect 2 & 3, but I was told to start with 1 of course. So thats what I'm doing.
Meanwhile trying not to buy anymore games.
I have Skyrim waiting... got it for Christmas and havn't even installed it.
I think its going to be my favorite game of all, but I don't want to spend the next year playing it.

Oh yeah. FOR SURE start with 1, and SAVE YOUR GAME, so that you can import it into each one. That is the best part. I cannot go into detail, but you can just import your save from each previous game, and it makes a HUGE difference in the games. You can really play ME1/2/3 over and over, and each time, the game changes. Want a REAL big change? Make Shep a female the next time you play all of the way through. Its so different. I think its one of the most well thought out games I have ever played.
