GOL Asks: What have you been playing on Linux & SteamOS recently?

By - | Views: 35,792
It's time for another edition of "GOL Asks", and today I am asking about games you have been playing and loving or hating recently.

I will open up the floor to you, my lovely users to tell everyone what you have be doing. I haven't asked this question for a few months, so it will be interesting to see what people have moved onto.

Personally, I got a little bit sucked into Galak-Z recently, as you might have noticed by the article. I'm the worst pilot in the word, but I love it. I really need to do another Alien: Isolation livestream, but my god, there's not enough RUM in the world to make me do that ;) Article taken from

Well according to steam:

Men of War: Assault Squad (Got from humbly bundly works well through WINE) - Spent two hours in the game so far.

Cities: Skylines - I accidentally sunk 26 hours into this one! Kinda ashamed of my self for wasting so much time instead of working in my spare time but meh I can take a break from time to time :-P I actually am glad this game works so well on my system even though I have a relatively weak GPU (GTX 650) which is below the minimum spec but the best thing about city builders is they mainly need a powerful CPU and lots and lots of RAM. And that's cool because prior to steam coming to Linux this system was built with development purposes in mind which also require a powerful CPU and lots of RAM.. so yup this game runs nicely, typically now using around 7GB of ram and 4 out of 8 cores, either way it's barely scratched the surface of my system :-). But due to my total play hours so far I have banned myself from playing this game for a while :-P.

I've also been playing DiRT Showdown with a total playtime of 13.8 hours, but 1 hours in last two weeks.

Then there's the other game I've banned myself from: Tropico 5, 48 hours on record... Thankfully 0 hours in last two weeks thanks to my ban :-P.

Played some of alien isolation, sunk 4 hours into it so far, but been playing other games also so not yet finished it..

Hack N' Slash, this game is actually quite cool contrary to popular belief I actually really enjoyed this one!

I have 6 hours on Secret of the Magic crystal.. BUT don't worry! I didn't actually play this one, it got given to me by humble bundle as a "surprise" for paying more than the average. Suffice to say I left it running to sell the trading cards. It is now un-installed and removed.

Think that's about it for "recent" games. :-). Total play time for last two weeks is: 27.9 hours. You can guess which city builder stole those hours from me :-P.

Quoting: stanI have a GTX 660 and can run A:I maxed out in 1920×1200 at a good framerate. I have disabled a few things though (chromatic, blur, these kinds of things) and the game runs always > 60 FPS.

It’s a really good port.

Good to know, thanks Stan. Guess I have no excuses then...

....other than being really scared. :D

Recentely I play again mainly (after small break): Hero Academy (definitely my number one, best game ever, etc., above 420 hours).

Otherwise: Chaos Reborn (demo), CS:GO, Invisible Inc., Borderlands 2 and immortal Enemy Territory.
