Another week has almost finished, it's now the weekend and it's super hot here which means it's time to hide indoors and play games.

For me, it's been a real mix of things recently. With the announcement that EVERSPACE 2 is coming to Linux, I've decided to brush up on my piloting skills in the original. I'm still amazed at how fun EVERSPACE actually is, especially the Action Freeze feature where you can just entirely stop the game to take a picture. Beautiful too, it can result in some awesome shots like this:

Apart from that, Jupiter Hell is another fantastic Early Access game now out on Linux. Already loving everything about it, from the awesome atmosphere to the incredible turn-based action. Although when I'm not looking for something so intense, diving into Dicey Dungeons is always high up on my list.

What have you been playing recently and what are you clicking on this weekend? Let us know your thoughts and recommendations in the comments.

I played a lot of Sundered this week and I only have to do the last boss battle. I have mixed feeling about this game, is a bit repetitive.

Started playing The Way which is a mix between the old Impossible Mission (oh, kids memories!) and Another World. Sometimes frustrating but not irritating.

As usual I tested (and will tomorrow) some games under Proton: to my surprise Middle-Heart: Shadow of Mordor finally works under Proton 4.11-2! And it works very well, better than the native port using Mesa!

From seeing the teasing about a possible new Homeworld game coming, I just had to sit down and play through Deserts of Kharak as I've had it laying about in my games list for ages now. Mainly due to a general lack of time, but also slightly due to seeing wildly varying reports on ProtonDB - and not necessarily wanting to have to fiddle about with it due to the earlier mentioned lack of time.

Though as it turns out that was not a problem at all, I was able to just download, launch, and play through the entire campaign in a single sitting without a single gameplay affecting issue - on the defaulted settings of very high/ultra.
(I had an issue where aircraft would very rarely become invisible during their docking animation, but only when I had my camera in an extreme angle)

A great game, and a really well made entry to the Homeworld series. Though it was noticeable that they hadn't had a very big budget behind it, with a slightly rushed feeling to some of the campaign missions, and a lack of depth in the unit and research trees.

Mordor 2: Darkness Awakening. It's an oldie, but a goldie.

Quoting: robvvI've been playing Underworld Ascendant quite a lot over the last few days. Very well optimised and it runs well on my system (AMD FX-9370, 16Gb RAM, GTX 970).
Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen runs well through Proton and is another game I've got quite into.

Finally, Knightin'+ 'cos it's good fun with old school pixel action :-)

Would you recommend Underworld??? Follow this game a while now. But many people say to much bugs.

Quoting: NezchanSecrets of Rætikon, a Metroidvania-ish game where you play a bird attempting to activate an ancient machine. Good controls, stunning visuals, and satisfying puzzles, even if fighting to get needed puzzle objects away from magpies gets frustrating at times.

It was the first game I ever backed in Early Access, and I figured I'd pick it up again and try to actually finish it.
Sadly, the ending of this game is terrible. I think they ran out of money and it really shows. Too bad as the general concept was cool.

Gibbous - A Cthulhu Adventure
Quite good point and click adventure!
... and it's native for Linux. :)

Interesting. I loved that game and played through a couple times to get the different endings and achievements. I can see the style not being everyone's taste, though.

Assetto Corsa Competizione via Steam Play since I found solution's to the three problems I had when running this game (frame time spikes, windows media foundation, proton msctf regression with UE4 engine). Works perfectly now and is so much fun!
