I'm waiting for the release of OilRush. They are going to release native linux versions for both i386 and x86_64 architectures.

Definitely Amnesia. That games supposed to be very very good, and also an excellent laxative. There's a good review here (warning: language). I'll probably buy the 2nd and 3rd of the penumbra series.

I ordered my gaming computer parts today Intel i5 + nvidia gtx460

Oil Rush for sure.

Besides any LGP title, and a handful of other native Linux games, our collection is a decent size. Though I am quite tempted by Bandits if LGP ever gets it finished. I may pick up a couple of the new Hidden Object games that were recently released on Linux for our room mate. She and my Girlfriend both like that genre of games.

I might get Oil Rush because it supports x86_64 ... but most other commercial Linux games don't.

I was thinking of buying Savage2, but unfortunately, it sucks compared to savage1, so it's not worth it.

Can't say that has stopped me playing x86 games on an x86_64 machine.
And yes,Oil Rush does look interesting.

I think if they're not gonna be open-source, and I have to pay for it, at least they should make it easier on me and make it work on 64-bit. It is an extra hassle to maintain 32-bit libs, so unless I really need it, I don't install them.

Does anyone know if all the games in the bundle work in x86_64? I've stopped using multilib and really don't want to go back there.

Revenge of the Titans is dual ARCH - it's a java application. Machinarium's site states 32bit Linux. Not too sure about the others. It's not even clear from the other's sites if there's a native Linux version. I do recall reading about the native Linux versions on various gaming sites. Wish the actual game site would advertise/promote the Linux version too.

From the little youtube video included on the bundle site, it seems that a lot of the games have had their Linux versions developed specifically for this bundle. The narrator says things like "Making its debut on the Linux platform" and such.
