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?

I just finished Saints Row IV. It was pretty good, the port had performance issues but the game itself was fun. Just started a horror visual novel called "The Letter" last night. Enjoying ikt so far.

I finally finished KOTOR 2 last night, so I feel like I'm at a bit of a loose end now. Those two have occupied pretty much all of my spare time for the last six weeks. Not that I don't have plenty of unfinished/ongoing games to play; I'll just have to see what sparks my interest next.

I had another look at Morrowind after the latest OpenMW release, only to realise it's three years since I last touched it, and I'd completely forgotten how to play. So there's a better-than-even chance I'll start another playthrough of that.

Finally finishing Pillars of Eternity. Switched to "Easy", this is clearly not my genre.

With the release of OpenMW 0.46, started my second playthrough of TES III: Morrowind with just about 7 mods. It looks gorgeous!

Isn't Morrowind way harder than PoE? :)

I've just started Project Warlock, an old school Hexen like, really fun and really fast, I really like it.
Works on Proton but not optimally, you must switch the graphic options on low to have decent framerate. It's not too bothering since it's retro pixel-art.

I've bought Detroit: Become Human and refunded it, 1 hour of playtime and 3 crash with one rebooting my computer, I thought it was my cpu temp but no problem on this side. And heavy graphical glitches on top of that. I will buy it again when all this will be ironed.

Else, still fiddling with Godot.

Next, I'm hesitating between Halo: MasterChief Edition or Star Wars: Fallen Order right after I'm finished with ME: Andromeda & South Park:Fractured but whole (Not sure if I will finish it, not as fun as the first one or I'm getting too old for this...).

Not at all! Just build your character having it's quirks in mind: have 1 starting weapon skill at 40 and starting speed at 50.
Use auto walk, switch to run when your stamina is above 60%, enjoy the music and scenery when it is below
Practice magic if you have spare mana (before resting or riding a Silt Strider)
If you have some gold, train those "misc" skills (it's cheap) just before a level up to gain huge increases to your attributes.
These are just my personal observations, not a professional Morrowind player's advice

I've been playing Mordhau (mostly), Kingdom Come Deliverance, Tomb Raider, Rise of Tomb Raider, Shadow Warrior 2 (excellent performance on DXVK), Insurgency, Verdun, Divinity Original Sin EE (playing on DXVK), LEGO Marvel (my kids) and The LEGO Movie (my kids also) and Shadow of Mordor (on Proton, this game has the worse performance on my list)!

I use a Radeon RX 480 on Arch, now I'm testing Linux-Mainline and Mesa-Git (with ACO), for a month now the performance has improved drastically, even in games that cannot keep FPS above 60, they are running smooth (except Shadow of Mordor)!

I finally bought Into The Breach some days ago and I playing it a lot. I love it like I love FTL.
Yesterday I finally finished the game for the first time, at least the first run, because of the genre, like FTL, you don't really finish it.

Also, I'm really hyped for their next game!
