"I must confess that I really like Linux. One of the things that
is stopping me from converting entirely over from Windows is the
fact that most of my games need Win32 to run. Thankfully, companies
like Loki and now Hyperion are porting our favorite Win32 games to
Linux. One of Hyperion's first efforts is a port of Monolith's
Shogo: Mobile Armor Division."
"Shogo is an animé-influenced tale of Sanjuro Makabe's
attempts to assassinate Gabriel, the leader of a rebel faction on
the planet Cronus. That planet is vitally important because it is
the only source of kato, a unique energy source that makes
interstellar travel possible. Along the way you get to use terribly
powerful weapons and awesome mecha (giant robot) armor. Lots of
things blow up. A good time is had by all."
"...[Gameplay] is where the port really shines. Despite the
somewhat higher requirements, it is very faithful to the original.
I could find no differences between gameplay in Linux and in Win98.
As a matter of fact, you can even argue that it is better in Linux
because Shogo doesn't lock up with NVIDIA cards like the original
