http://www.madpenguin.org

When I read reports on the Linux gaming industry, I can't help but wonder where the Linux gamers are at? Can we find them on the Nintendo Wii or perhaps the Playstation 3 (PS3)? After all, I have heard that PS3 actually works rather well with Yellow Dog Linux.

Open Source Gaming Review: Frozen Bubble

http://www.raiden.net

Frozen Bubble is a pop-cap style game that puts the user into a world of colored balls, ice and penguins. While that might sound a bit silly, that's the whole point. The game works on the same principle as several very popular pop-cap style games such as "Dinosaur Eggs" and even the classic game "Puzzle Bobble" that started it all.

The Unique Problem of Go

http://penguinpetes.com

Go is an active topic in the free software community. There's the excellent GNU-Go engine, the CGoban GUI front end, and then there was Hikarunix, the Linux live CD devoted entirely to the game of Go. I also blush a little bit whenever I hear a discussion of the difficulty of programming Go, because... I took a shot at it.

Mario. Probably one of the best and most memorable of great classic games. It still thrills and excites even to this day in all its forms. So much so that it's still spawning new and exciting versions of our favorite plumber and his friends. But what if Mario wasn't a plumber? What if he were, say, a penguin? If he were, then you'd have Super Tux!
