At time of writing, you only have 18 hours left to take advantage of the Humble Bundle V, which gathers together some smashingly good indie classics for as much money as you care to pay. Currently, if you pony up anything over $8.50 you’ll score eight games instead of four, which is a sweet deal indeed. All games are DRM-free and cross-platform; you can decide how much of your payment goes to charity; and you’ll get a couple of ace soundtracks as well. Over 570,000 sterling gamers have taken part in this scheme already, bringing in over $$4,860,000.

There is to be no more Linux version of EVE Online, according to this official forum post, the unloved stepchild of CCP’s spacey MMO to be dropped on March 10. It launched alongside the game’s Mac client last November.
Why’s it being nuked? Says Slashdot: “The client was not preferred for Linux users as it did not support the Premium graphics client and did not run as well as the win32 client under Wine.”
Greek to us.
