    Skateboarding games?

    Tony Hawk Pro Skater 3 runs great on Dolphin - even with the Mayflash adapter so you can use a wavebird ;)

    Home use linux gui

    I'm a fan of Gnome. It gets hate in some groups, but 3.14 is amazing. Also an Arch fan due to the wonderful AUR, but IMO distro doesn't really matter as long as you can get your patches/packages.

    Anyone getting good preformance with a AMD video yet?

    I had a really good experience running the open source AMD drivers (xf86-video-ati on Arch) with my 6950. I recently upgraded to a GTX 970 and switched to the proprietary nvidia drivers (better game performance). Generally the open source drivers work best for software support (ie. gdm, gnome...

    Gigabyte G1 Gaming GTX 970

    Not sure if this helps or not (hard to line up with one hand), but I took it last night before installing the card.

    Saitek X52 Not Detected (Windows 8.1 x64)

    My windows 8.1 pc has been randomly bluescreening when unplugging my x52 pro, but not every time... That's new.

    Playing Origin off nas or server? any one got it to work?

    Do you have a link for this? I'd love to consolidate multiple pc's steam installs to reduce patch sizes. I've often wondered when steam would introduce some sort of btsync like functionality for distributing game patches over the LAN to other machines w/o redownloading off of the internet.

    Gigabyte G1 Gaming GTX 970

    Thanks for the pics. I've got a G1 GTX 970 in the mail arriving today to go into my 650D case. Glad to see there is plenty of room.

    Elite: Dangerous

    What size is the download for the full game? Anyone have an image showing the default X52 Pro bindings? I played the combat tutorials this weekend and had a good time - can't wait to get in and give the full game a go (was not in beta).

    Elite: Dangerous

    I went ahead and preordered (something I rarely ever do). I figure that I've already got an Oculus Rift, X52 Pro, and Pedals -- I need something to play on it, especially with DCS not really working correctly on AMD cards. I'm out of town now, but if the combat demo runs like crap I'll probably...

    What is he trying to play?

    TriFire 290x Arch

    There are so many caveats here. Depending on his desktop environment, etc. running the proprietary driver may break things. IE. gdm (part of gnome) breaks on my config using catalyst unless I manually roll back to an outdated version of xorg. There is a ton on the Arch wiki and forums about it...

    HOT? Star Craft 2 WOL and HOTS $9.99 each.

    Worth it for the campaigns alone.

    Witcher 2 free from GoG, and more

    I'm replaying this for the alternate acts right now. Act 2 is supposedly entirely different depending on your choice at the end of Act 1. It will also be a nice update on the story before The Witcher 3 is released. Really enjoyed this game the first time, and have enjoyed my replay so far (just...
