a) the fourth remix pack has finally been released after what, a decade?
b) a new game in the series is in development (http://arstechnica.com/gaming/2014/0...n-development/)

I would have loved to play the HD version of UQM , but the license is not GPL, no slackware packages.

Xonotic

Xonotic sure has come a long way. I love practically everything about it! The weapons are great, the trick jumping is awesome, and it's just an all around great shooter that everyone should check out. By the way, anyone know what became of Nexuiz? Did it finally make it to a console, or is it still rotting on a server somewhere?

Oolite wasn't on the list, so I went with my #2: SuperTuxKart.

No time for games here so hesitant to vote but with that caveat in mind, I know my kids would shout in unison their love of "Battle for Wesnoth". I'm going to have to point them to this poll though to take a gander at what else they might be missing

Thanks for that. Just took a quick look. Cool that it runs on older hardware, of wh/I have stacks!! But from screenshots mayhaps just a bit too old school on the graphics for them compared to Battle for Wesnoth, of which they've come to be spoiled.
