Hooray! Your Linux box just got slightly more awesome with the addition of Portal to Steam’s Ubuntu-friendly collection, if you’re in the beta. Portal is Steamplay compatible so if you, like practically everyone else on Steam, already own a copy you may be able to just go ahead and install it without coughing up USD$9.99 for it.

In less substantiated but maybe more exciting news, sequel Portal 2 has been spotted haunting some parts of the Steam Linux store, as spotted by Gearburn. We haven’t seen it ourselves, unfortunately, but even if it’s complete moonshine you can probably expect it to be true eventually, as Valve seems hellbent on getting every Source engine game running on the alternate OS.

Steam was kind enough to decide I had to have this and just started downloading all 3.7gb of it for me….

 

Sorry but I have to laugh, using Gearburn as a source for Portal 2 because it shows up in the “All Games” list…does the title “All Games” not mean anything to some people? Daily linux gaming news on www.gamingonlinux.com by the way ;)

 

Would liamdawe like to disclose his connections to gamingonlinux.com? Like, being the owner of that site?

For someone who criticizes others for their lack of journalistic integrity, it seems as though someone is not adverse to throwing stones in their own glass house.

 

Yes I am the owner of http://www.gamingonlinux.com. That doesn’t stop me poking fun at others.
