What have you been playing recently?

By - | Views: 20,635

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 didn't play games this weekend.
On Friday I discovered how awesome Intel ISPC can be, so I kept working through the weekend. I just couldn't stop, simply because for some of our code just porting it from C++ improved performance by a factor of 15 (on Intel Skylake - on AMD Jaguar the improvement is more like a factor of 7, but still impressive....), and I didn't want that endorphin rush to stop.

(Edit: I mixed up the letters in ISPC, and fixed that now - originally I had written ISCP...)

Whoa, sorry. I can't seem to type the abbreviation without mixing up letters. I'll edit my orignal post.

I wouldn't have known "ISPC" either... :D
