The weekend is almost over and a nice week full of news is about to begin. Before it does, let's get talking! What have you been playing?

Brigador: Up-Armored Edition has been sucking up a lot of my time recently, thanks to a new update coming out with a bit of new content. I have so much love for the destruction in this game it's unreal! This is where I have honestly spent most of my time, stomping on everything and identifying explosive areas to set off fun chain-reactions from a shot or two and just watching everything go to hell. Love the customization too, plenty to unlock from vehicles to pilot to ridiculously powerful weapons.

Since Abandon Ship got a Linux beta recently, I've also been putting some time into that while chatting to the developer to help ensure a smooth release later this month.

I also helped the developer of Elteria Adventures identify a bug preventing the upcoming Linux version from launching, so that was fun too.

My R9 Fury keeps hanging on various games:
  • Risk of rain 2 (the scorched acres stage will trigger this)

  • No man's sky (at some point, if I follow the main storyline, it hangs)

  • Ryze, son of rome

  • Verdun hung the GPU once

  • Mad Max: Changing the graphics settings to high hung the GPU two days ago, which it didn't use to


So I set out to compile my own mesa-git and llvm-git. As compilation with 16 threads is quite intensive on my CPU, I couldn't play realtime games where timing is important. That's why I mostly played FTL: Faster Than Light, and Crypt of the Necrodancer with bard. It was actually my first time with the latter game. I'm hooked!

I'm starting to suspect a hardware failure on my GPU, would someone with the same be willing to try and reproduce some of my hangs?
I hate it, as the system doesn't recover in case of such hangs, and I have no logs to share.

Quoting: iiari
Quoting: coryrj19951And also playing around with The Dark Mod a little.
What do you think of the Dark Mod so far?

It's impressive really, especially for what was originally a Doom 3 mod. It captures the looks and feel of Thief perfectly while also doing it's own things. I've only gotten through the first level that comes included but I hear there are some really good user made levels that I want to try out.

Quoting: F.UltraBought and launched Mad Max so I'll guess that I'll be stuck with my computer for 100-200hours. Don't know how my employer will react though...
Took me less than 90 to get all but one of the achievements, and I wasn't exactly speedrunning. But I guess 90 hours is plenty.

Make sure it's using Vulkan. I haven't played it in a while, so I don't know if you still need to use a beta version, but it's well worth it. It improved my experience from “playable, but a bit rough in places” to a solid 60+fps with maxed-out settings.

Slay the Spire kept me awake way past 1am on both nights, and I am still not sure if it is very addictive or frustrating. Or both...

Battlefield: Bad Company 2 multiplayer now that I got that working.

I think one still requires the beta branch to go Vulkan (the option is not in the launcher which AFAIK it is in the vulkan build) so I've only tested it with OpenGL so far but it flies on my Ryzen+RX480 at max settings so I haven't yet found it necessary to test the beta branch.

I have a tendency in games like this to spend 10+ hours on infiltrating some outpost just to realise that I probably need to level up first :)

My personal compulsion is to comb through every nook and cranny and avoid anything that looks like it might advance the story until there's absolutely nothing else to do. I guess I have an irrational fear of accidentally missing out on some optional bit of content.
