    The Steam Summer Sale (now through July 8th) kind of sucks this season, but that stops us not at all: we hit you with a barrage of great deals, most under $10, almost all of which can be played for well over a month. We also describe how to work around the limitations in Linux's timeshift utility to get actual rolling snapshots of your system files. AND MOAR!

Goresicle ,

I want to jerk off the host

Real deal Holyfield gaming podcast focused on Linux gaming with a sprinkle of Bill Maher. Ivor owes me me a moldy bologna sammich and some Canadian whiskey. Mostly focusing on steam games and deals but keeping all the focus if games actually work on a Linux rig.

Zodiacxx ,

Hurts so goooood !!

It puts the podcast in its ears!

Kojendall ,

Makes me touch myself

Keeps you up to date on the latest releases, deals, and goings on for all things Linux gaming. If you want to stop thinking about how you are basically a walking talking piece of dust floating around endlessly on a slightly larger piece of dust through the infinite void of space for about half an hour check it out.
