GOGs offers up Linux games, Steam Controller speculation, and more

Back in March, the digital games distribution site GOG.com (which, believe it or not, is owned by Poland’s CD Projekt RED) announced it would be adding support for Linux. This week, ahead of schedule, 50 games were released on the site with support for Ubuntu and Linux Mint.

Check out GamingOnLinux for an interview about the release and be sure to check out the promotional sale before it ends on Monday.
