What are you playing this weekend?

By - | Views: 21,581

It's the weekend already? It's also September! When did that happen?

This weekend's main dish is going to be Two Point Hospital, the recent release that has you build a hospital and cure people from some really strange and slightly amusing afflications. So far it seems pretty good and runs really nicely. I will have some proper thoughts up early next week on that!

I've no doubt I will also be diving into some more BlazeRush (70% off on Humble) and Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime (60% off on Humble). Both of which I'm loving in local multiplayer with the mini-me.

Doom in Steam Play is also on the radar. I have to say I am really impressed with it, some good demon slaying to be had. The Vulkan performance is nuts, so smooth!

So the question is: what are you playing this weekend? Do let us know what you think about it!

Quoting: RoosterWhich Skyrim version are you guys using? I was thinking of getting the Legendary Edition.

The classic one with all DLCs and high res texture pack.

Hitman. So much more Hitman.

Quoting: Mr. PinskyGTA V.

Yes, it runs on Steam Play/Proton :D

Needs a workaround to make it start, and it occasionally starts stuttering after a while, but overall it's a pretty smooth experience.

How? I've seen footage of it running on Linux, but couldn't find anything to tell me how to get past that Social Club loading.

You need to create a custom dxvk config.

It's covered in detail here by AlexeyProkhin comment.

Icy: Frostbite Edition. I dig it. It reminds me a lot of the board game Dead of Winter - just without the zombie trappings. Lots of character development and lots of difficult choices with meaningful consequences.

Finally got back to TIS-100.

For my taste the Zachtronics games are one of the best things to happen. :)

Everspace, maybe DeusEx:MD. With Steam Play Gray Goo, I love this game.

I recommend the enhanced towns and audio ambiance packs from the workshop, they really make the place feel more lived in.

Oh yes, I plan to finish this one too! This "display programming" started to be too much grind-work at the time I played it. And then I somehow I left it alone..

Path of Exile: Delve via a custom Proton build. Some people are having issues with the latest release, but me it's running as well as it ever has (which is to say, acceptable if not amazing).

I'd love to play Grim Dawn (which does work in vanilla Wine) but Proton has a *very* odd bug where you can play but can't choose a class when you hit level 2. Weird.

Oh, and Into The Breach. Works with Proton, and is on sale on Humble, so why wait? ;)

The only complaint I have is that it seems to melt my notebook.
It's getting *extremely* hot for the very simplistic presentation.
It literally hurts my legs while playing for 2 minutes - so I have to put it somewhere else.
This affects all Zachtronics games so far that I played (not including Opus Magnum and the newest one which I both don't have *yet*).

It's Unity based, right?
IIRC, I have similar issues with other Unity games.
For reference:
The notebook has a Haswell CPU/GPU but a rather high display resolution with 2880x1620 pixels.
