    why does it take so long for a game to get reviewed after it gets released? Tycoon 2 has been out for a while, why is Linux Magazine just now getting around to reviewing it? anyway, this brings me to another question…why is someone going to buy a game for Linux when the micro$oft version is generally marked down 20 to 30$ cheaper by the time it is released? i.e. i went to buy Myth 2 and the micro$oft Total Codex version was $19.95 while the Linux Myth 2 only ver was 49.95? (this just wasn.t just with Tycoon 2, but every Loki game out…before anyone asks, i did spend the extra money just to show support for Loki :-) but how many other people are willing to pay this large price difference). It seems that if Loki and anyone else porting games wants to stay truly competitive they would adjust their pricing scheme to match with the m$ port…just my $0.02 worth…and no, i am not a crackhead, so don.t ask.

    I agree with your point of view on this. Right now the Linux community is having to pay extra for its goods. This will be the case whilst Linux plays catchup to windows in the gaming market. As time goes on, and games are released at the same time for both platforms, this will even out. For now, we just have to rely on the linux community to continue to show support with their wallets.

    The upcoming titles from Loki, one of them is right up to date (Soldier of Fortune), whilst the other 3 announced are all fairly old. Still, that is one out of four that is new.
    All of the mentioned titles are available from Tux Games
