Release More Source Engine Titles Please
Greetings users of thee Linux!

I'm really hoping that Valve can release more source engine titles on Linux. Titles like Day of Defeat: Source or CS:GO. This also includes the upcoming DotA 2 which uses the source engine.

I'd love to be able to play all my favorite Source engine titles on Linux and not just Team Fortress 2.

Don't understand other point of this topic than +1, so +1 for DOTA2 and more games in general. :)

I think Valve is pretty keen on porting games to linux since they're planning a steambox console based on linux with lots of games
But they can't perform miracles and make it happen over night, so just be patient ;)
I guess L4D2 will come pretty soon ;)

There is just one, one single game that holds me to Windows. And that game is DotA 2. I tried Wine and it just don't works well enough. I'd love to see it ported to Linux!

I'm not asking for miracles. I'm asking for ports on a decent time frame. How the source engine appears across most Source engine games by Valve seems fairly linear to me so it shouldn't bee much of an issue

Hopefully we'll see more Source games soon. If it's anything like the mac versions, we should be seeing basically all Valve's source games on Linux (HL2 Lost Coast isn't there, but thats not really a game)

I love source games, they play well and they look great. I'm playing HL2 through for about the tenth time, and I wish I could buy other games using the same engine.

You hear that, Valve? Make more Source engine games for single player people!

What is not working for you? It works fine for me, except being disconnected after 2 minutes in last game and upon trying to reconnect getting error and unable to do so :)

I think my problem is more driver related. The graphics seems to be a little buggy, but I really hadn't had much time to work it out. Still, see the game playing natively on Linux would be great.

CS:GO or at least counterstrike source to start with, then ill remove windows permanent!

It's Valve, people. It'll be finished "when it's finished." No amount of want will get it any sooner.

I know, I know. I has a sadness too. I would really like it if more of the games already available on Linux outside of Steam which have Linux ports were up and available through Steam. I have oodles of Humble Bundle games unlocked on Steam which should have Linux ports available. I would like Valve to encourage developers and publishers who already have Linux versions of their products to put those Linux versions on Steam sooner rather than later!

Yeah, I thought L4D2 was in a playable state, and would actually be the only playable title in the beta. I can't wait for CS:GO and DotA2 as well. But I'm sure they have their reasons for not having it out yet.

The source engine runs well so I don't see any reason not to being out other titles

Maybe they want to manage bug reporting for now, and release 200 games for linux when steam leaves beta? dreaming dreaming :)

Let's hope that's how it is. I'd imagine that L4D2 is just as playable as TF2 is right now. The TF2 port came to bit of a surprise and I think they have been working on L4D2 first and once they figured out how to port a source game they thought it would be better to have a Free-to-Play title in the Beta. So they quickly made the necessary porting for TF2 and that's where we are now.

I hope the big surge of all the HiB titles and L4D2 and maybe even some other source titles comes just weeks after the Client is out of Beta. Some rumors say it's scheduled for February-March. But always add Valve Time to the calculation. ;-)

So if you want them to get their work done quicker test the crap out fo the client and the available games. Then do a proper bugreport. Search first if it doesn't already exist and then be as specific about everything as you can be. There is no such thing as to much information.
