What have you been playing and what do you think?

By - | Views: 59,177

Since the weekends are generally our quiet time, as I take them to spend a little time with family I'm asking a question: What have you been playing and what do you think?

I've been spending more time than I was expecting in Rust. It's strange really, as it's a game I previously didn't get along with at all and now I'm quite hooked on it.

Not everyone will agree with me on this, but I actually think Rust is one of the nicest looking games on Linux. Sure, there's a good bunch that are better, but there's been many moments in Rust where I have to completely stop and just take in the view. That's in-between all the moments of absolute panic when someone fires shots at me and I have no idea where they are.

I want to share this image I took recently too, from a little meet up we did on our server:

We ended up having some sort of in-game concert and it was rather amusing. What makes it even more interesting, is that community member woox2k managed to hook up some scripts (available on GitHub) to play custom music files in game with the guitars and it was incredible.

If you want to join us on our Rust server, details of our game servers are here.

Anyway, less of my ramblings, over to you! Tell us what you've been playing in the comments.

Playing Octodad with my 10 year old daughter. Pretty funny game and unusual control in a funny way.

Road Redemption, it's loads of fun and runs perfectly.

I played Doom 2016 via Wine 2.18 with Vulkan , that is such a good game. Shame that there is not a native Linux version out there.

Also played Cs:Go , Dota 2 and Bioshock Infinite.

Hell , Bioshock's performance was so poor.

Quoting: subCurrently I'm addicted to Cuphead.
And damn is it good!

Honestly, best game I played in a very long time.
Extremely challenging, but so well and lovely executed.
Yet so different. It's basically one boss fight after another.

Unfortunately it's Windows and Xbox-only thus far.
I saw reports running it successfully on Wine.
But I'm pragmatically use Windows in this case (yeah, not a Wine fan).

It's a Unity game and devs said they'll look into bringing it to Mac and Linux.
Their exclusivity contracts only cover consoles.

So watch out should it be released on Linux.

This game catched my eye from the very first moment I saw the trailer. Hopefully it will come to linux soon. Looks great and everybody's speaking wonders of it.

Unfortunately I've been playing battlefield and battlefront lately. One day I'm gonna get on the rust server and try it out.

On Linux I'm playing Jedi Knight Jedi Outcast, but what I'm playing the most is the Metroid Prime series on Wii, what a masterpiece!

RIVE from the Humble Bundle since it was suggested in the GoL post. And it is pure fun. :)

CS:GO and Ballistic Overkill while waiting Cuphead and A Hat in Time (and Divinity Original Sin 2 :P) linux port.

Arma 3.

Tried TW3 and still does not work for me. Will try later.

I have Rust (got it in some bundle or other), but the multiplayer-only thing is a deal-breaker for me.

Anyway, myself: Helium Rain, after your recommendation actually. Very nice, very good-looking, but maybe still a bit empty. That said, I haven't really got into the factional combat side of it, so perhaps I'm judging it prematurely.

Planet Nomads. Another game I saw here and thought would be right up my alley. Which it is. I'm loving the regular weekly update schedule, too. It shows the devs are properly committed, and gives you a new reason to play every Thursday.

Speaking of weekly, I'm still plugging away at Grid: Autosport's weekly challenges. I've never quite made it to #1, but I'm still quite proud of the occasional top 1% using a controller with all the driver aids off.

And, unusually for me, that's about it. Mainly because for the last couple of weeks I've mostly been “playing” with the Godot engine, trying to learn the ropes by recreating the first level of Manic Miner (of all things). It's going... surprisingly well, given my long (long, loooong) history of abandoned projects. If rather slowly. But I already have a few ideas floating around my head for what to tackle next. Stuff I might actually release (don't hold your breath)...
