What have you been playing recently?

It's Sunday and another week has flown by, in part thanks to all the wonderful limited-time demos that have been available for a few days during the Steam Game Festival.

Thanks to the Steam festival, the choice of gaming available has been tougher than ever. Do you jump through your vast backlog of titles or wet your taste-buds with one of the demos? Choices, choices. Here's a reminder of some recent interesting new releases for Linux:

Admittedly, my own time has been spread across a great many titles. Although, thanks to Titanfall 2 now working well on Linux with Steam Play Proton I will admit to having the need to go and play a lot more. Apart from that, I've also been feeling the ARPG call from Last Epoch, now that it's up to date and working very nicely, a proper gem in the rough and could be quite big once fully released. So many skills to master, loot coming out of everything you can fashion into a pocket and so many different types of enemies. Last Epoch is really one that action RPG fans need to take a look into.

Over to you in the comments section: what have you been playing recently?

Insurgency (Source) mainly, but also Snake Pass (thx Houtworm) a nice game with unusual controls that works without any problem so far with Proton 5.0-9!

I am currently playing through Buldur's Gate Enhanced Edition.

Even though I had the original, I never got to finish it, being a much bigger JRPG player.
I've got two "Tales of" games to finish on Proton, namely Zestiria and Berseria, but I just had a sudden urge to play something more deep and complex, and also less action-oriented.
I already went through big troubles and lost much money in resurrection costs, damn those games were quite harsh.

X4 the most.

Elite Dangerous, runs great with Proton.

Demos mostly. :D

* ASYLUM Demo
Just touched shortly, I fear not being able to move freely is not my thing anymore. :-(
* Slender Threads Demo
Nice light horror, put on wish list
* Saint Kotar: The Yellow Mask
Dark horror, lots of myterious talking, little actual game in the demo. So disturbing that I had to fetch a blanket. Supported it on Kickstarter (third backing ever). It gave me some Last Crown vibes - anybody can relate to this?
* The Last Cube Demo
(At first I was confounding this one with Parabox - too many games this weekend. :) )
Nice look and feel, unsure about the puzzling. Following the game.
* DRAG Demo
Nice one but I'm just too bad at racing.
* art of rally Demo
Nope.
* Nine Noir Lives Demo
Need to play more of it, not too much into this cat thing ATM.
* Patrick's Parabox Demo
Well, when the recursive boxes came, I was captivated. Put on follow list.
* Whateverland: Prologue
Did not really get into it, will take a look later.
* The Long Gate Demo
Nice presentation, but found it a bit too fiddly to try my solutions. And in the end... OR, NOT and AND...? Hm.
* The House of Da Vinci
My go to game at the moment (yes, fell for Proton whitelisted)

Night in the Woods - finally got around to it after having it forever. Great art, good story, went in a completely different direction than expected at the end but not in a bad way. It dragged a little at some parts, but nothing too bad.

Estranged Act 1/2 - I did these back to back and it was a nice ride. It's hard to believe these were a one man+ show - the first feels and plays more dated for obvious reasons and isn't bad, but part 2 looks great and performs perfectly. Both are pretty short and easily worth going through.

Other than that, the usual TF2/Underlords timewasting and FF14 - the latter starting to worry me since AFAIK the old launcher is going away this upcoming patch and no progress has been made fixing the new one in WINE.

I haven't been playing much lately because I have so much going on now that it's summer but I have played some CS Go. I did just pick up TitanFall 2 because of your article on it ( Thanks Liam! ). I will be sinking some hours into that for sure.

S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Pripyat and Cities: Skylines. I've completed Deus Ex: Mankind Divided and Painkiller Hell & Damnation recently.

I played through Islands - non places and started with The Town of Light and Titanfall 2.
