Linux Gaming Log
Everyone please post linux games you play and your system config. This help others to find good linux games and configurations needed to play them.

OS: Ubuntu 14.04 GPU: Radeon HD 5670 Driver: Open Source uname -r: 3.13.0-32-generic

I can play following games

Team Fortress 2
Sid Meier's Civilization® V
Left 4 Dead 2 (with slight Lag, but playable)
The Swapper (works properly, but not played much)

I have very bad graphics performance, i think this was due to multiple GPU drivers installed, now i removed AMD catalyst, using Open Source driver, that perform much better.

Installing "Sanctum 2" now, i will update after playing it.

Played Champions of Regnum, it is playable under linux on my HD 5670 GPU with low quality graphics. Player models missing dress, so models look like nude.

It is a MMORPG game, but i only see very few players. wasd keys to move, but player won't turn to the direction of move, so controlling is little difficult, not sure it is only me. I have problem with controlling in Bastion game (i only played few minutes). I prefer TF2/BF like player movement.
