What are you clicking on this weekend? Come tell us

It's the weekend and hopefully some of you will find the time to relax and play some games. There's been a lot of new releases lately too!

For me, I'm a little torn.

The new Stoneshard update is really good, filled full of new content to play through and a lot of new weapons to try out. The brutal combat and setting certainly takes getting used to, along with the health system. I've lost count on the amount of times I've died in it over the last few days.

I also want to play a whole lot more Burning Knight simply because it's so incredibly fun to blast through. So much insane action when you manage to build up a list of items. Just look at how ridiculous it can be!

You know what? I'm clicking Play on Burning Knight as soon as this goes up…

Over to you: what will you be clicking on across this weekend and into next week? Let us know in the comments and suggest some good picks for your fellow GOL reader.

Quoting: KaluaNo Linux nor Windows for me this weekend. Only C64 games :D.
Some Turrican, Krakout and The Yawn (probably one of the funniest text adventures of all time (only in German)).
I think you win the thread. :D

Turrican is sheer class. (And that's from a Spectrum kid.)

Surviving Mars: I am trying to play all the sponsors, all the Commanders and all the mysteries, but not necessarily all the combinations of them, only one of each! Currently Europe+Geo-Engineer+Philosopher Stone ...

Haha.
The ZX Spectrum is on my wishlist^^. I want to expand my 8bit collection a bit more.

Quoting: CorbenHonorable mentions are Synth Riders, OhShape and Pistol Whip. All nice rhythm based music VR games, which give you also a nice workout. There is even YUR integration for BS, SR and OhShape from within the game, to count your burnt calories. And the Synth Riders as well as the OhShape devs are looking into a configurable 3rd person cam by my request, so a mixed reality stream would be feasible.


Yeah, not native Linux games, I know, but GTFO works flawless (platinum rating) and Beat Saber is whitelisted by Valve for Proton.
Lately I have been sucked into the YUR community. Closing the fitness center due to corona was a big enabler, but now I am becoming addicted. What YUR stuff can you actually do in Linux (besides Beat Saber and Discord)?

  • Factorio - I'm loving it since I started yesterday, building and progressing is a lot of fun but the missions are a pain.

  • Starbound - Using the FrackinUniverse mods. Tons of fun, slowly building up my base/Trinkian robot army.

  • 7 Days to Die - Started this week. Zombie vultures are flying demons, they chase me for miles until I find shelter or manage to kill them off.

  • Volcanoids - I think I will like this a lot too, but the amount of tasks you need to manage early on is overwhelming and will take some getting used to.

I also played AGAIN StoneShard because of the new update, but died at the boss fight to get out of the dungeon; as you know, there's no save system until you're out... it's so irritating. The devs said they won't change it too.
What do you guys think?

I've started on Half-Life Alyx - god damn what a game. What. A. Game.

So much so that I have actually stopped again - I want to finish the other games I got running and give this one 100% focus. It is... CRAZY. Not just for a VR game, but for games period.

That means some more hours into GTA5 - I'm still not 100% convinced about the three protagonist idea but it's better than I feared it would be. And else it's very classic GTA vibes. And the fantastic radio stations. A reason in itself to play this game.

And I end most evenings with a round of virtual table tennis - on Eleven: Table Tennis VR. Very cool game, good virtualisation of the game.

I hate it. I hate it with all my strength. I don't play roguelikes or roguelites due to that. I find the idea of not saving games, no going back to a previous point to try to do things differently extremely upsetting. I have a few roguelites and for almost all of them I run a script when the game is launched to back up the automatic savegame for reverting to a previous time, if I go wrong. The only exception is Monstrum because you have to finish the game in a single sitting, there are no savegames. Or the games which save your information on the cloud, like Elite.

I finally completed The Witcher 3 main story after 120hours; so now time for another game before I return to the witchery world for the expansions!
