The Weekly Dose #4


The Weekly Dose #4


June 23 2013

Hi all, it is about time another weekly dose is due! Its been a long week (for me anyway) and so the Dose is a wee bit late (Okay....maybe a lot) but I’m sure you guys won’t mind, right? This week, has been a slow week in the news biz. A few small popups here and there, but nothing extremely major. So let's get into it.

What’s up with Wine 1.6


With the last week release of Wine 1.6’s first release candidate, the third one has been announced! So, go check it here and try it out. Just remember, bringing about 1.6 has put Wine in a code freeze, so no new things have been added, except bug fixes. Play around and see if you can find more bugs, everyone likes bugs!

Check them Sales!


Anyone that has joined Steam, or any other social gaming network, probably are all anxious for the sales. Well, GOG definitely wants to go nuts this summer by giving us a huge #noDRM sale on a ton of games. Along with that, I’m sure everyone is anxious and waiting for the Steam Summer Sale...which will happen, when Valve’s ready.

What is this!?


Recently, Thanoulas decided to show up, but with a mind blowing new project. This new project, being called....Barrel (OMG BARRELS...no Pewdiepie joke intended).

Barrel is an amazing fresh idea, with a great goal; to make getting game ports on your mac easy and simple as possible. You can literally search the database for a specific port, just by dragging the volume from your desktop to the app, I mean, that sounds pretty damn good right?

Just remember, being a fresh new project, it is still in the early stage of development, but will most likely get better every day! So check it out here and don’t forget to thank Thanoulas if you enjoy it :)

Well....that was short!


It was short, but never the less was interesting, (right?). I hope you guys all enjoyed this weeks news, as always don’t forget to post feedback, and if you want, you can always help me out with it by sending me a PM of whatever sounds interesting!

Anyways, next week's article is just around the corner, so I’ll see you all again soon, but until then....Happy Gaming :)
