What have you been playing recently and what do you think about it?

It's been quite some time since we last had an open discussion about what you've all been playing recently. Let's get things going again.

We've almost finished the second month of 2020, we've had tons of Linux games that have released this year already and a huge amount more on the way. Now with the rise of game streaming, Steam Play Proton and more options appearing constantly there's never a shortage of gaming to be had.

Personally, I've been getting back into the deck-builder Faeria (Humble/Steam).

With the big recent patch, it gave me a new reason to pick it up and I had honestly forgotten just how good the gameplay is. Building the board as you go really does spice up the usual turn-based tactics, as does the single-player content that's quite plentiful. Gamepad support that was recently added has also made it more accessible than ever. Crafting a good deck of cards is always the hard part but Faeria is fun to learn.

So, over to you: what have you been playing recently and what do you think about it?

Knightin+: a cool dungeoneering action adventure with nice puzzles like sokoban challenges thrown in.

I also played a bit of The Surge, but unlike almost everybody else, the game keeps crashing. Enjoyed what I saw though and will keep returning to this with updated drivers or OS or new Proton versions.
Had a night full of INSIDE and loved it to bits.
Had some friends proclaim CHAOS REBORN! and FOR THE KING! while having a jolly good time.
Had a few hours in DARKSIDERS 2 and still have to decide whether I love or it bores me to death.

I started up a private PVE Ark server with really high taming and collection rates so it's not such an insane grind. Playing it via Proton makes it so much better too. If any of you guys want to play a little PVE Ark on a private server hit me up via message.

Until the other day I got back into and played too much DOTA Underlords to see if I could hit max by release until I both burnt out and learned that we're not keeping all of the proto pass rewards...

Played through to the full ending of Later Alligator. The gameplay loop and puzzles weren't much to write home about but the animation and short story were amusing enough for me.

I've had some friends trying to drag me back into FFXIV. It still works well and now the new launcher even almost works for me. Progress.

Really, work has been keeping me busy/worn out lately so aside from those and the occasional TF2 match I've been pretty light on gaming. I have Kentucky Route Zero waiting since the final part came out and hopefully after this month things will slow down enough to get to it properly.
7 Days to Die, Last Word and Yaroid recently. Yaroid is an old asteroid clone I wrote for the Net Yaroze.

I had the Postal Fudge Pack show up after I ordered it from eBay for $12.99 CAD just so I could add another game to the collection with a Tux on the box. This made me curious to see if I could get my old backed up Desura copy of Postal 2 working and after removing "libgcc_s.so.1" from the System directory and hacking it to support widescreen everything works great. I kicked around through Monday and still managed to somehow complete all of my objectives.

It is annoying that the Linux updates never made their way to GOG.com as of yet and Postal Redux is still missing in action from there. They say the team is all tied up with Postal 4, which I can understand, but at the same time I do wish they would finish what they started. Releasing the source code to Postal Plus still earns them plaudits though.

Quoting: JJNovaI have been bouncing back and forth between Urban Terror and Deponia. I bought all of the Deponia games years ago for a few bucks each, and just started going through my backlog.

Urban Terror on the other hand, is always installed and ready to go at a moments notice. I'm quite excited for the next release and hope it happens in 2020.

Wow Urban Terror, I played so much of this game in the past. I lost interest when they did the major rework, took forever. Is it back to being as good as it was before?
Homefront: The Revolution via PROTON...
The game stutter a lot, but I understand that problem is present on Windows too..

Regalia: Of Men and Monarchs

It's enjoyable. Comes fairly close to scratching that Fire Emblem itch. The humor is... cute. At least chuckle worthy and not distracting.

I also tried Deep Sky Derelicts this weekend and hated it. Couldn't even make it a full half hour in before I got bored with the repetitive combat.

My GPU died recently (poor little R285, only five years old!) so I for the moment I'm limited to less demanding games. Currently playing the single player campaign of Worms Reloaded.

I have been stuck on level 24 for a week, because in 25 years of Worms my skills with the ninja rope have not improved one bit.
