Join us on our own very special Reddit on /r/Linuxers.

It's coming to the end of another week on planet Earth. More games have released, tons have seen updates and it's time for another chit-chat.

You might laugh but a lot of my time has been spent playing Troll Patrol, I've actually found myself somewhat hooked by it. The simplicity of match-3 gameplay with a dash of RPG elements makes for quite a fun brew. I'm genuinely surprised by how fun it actually is and it seems the PC release has gone firmly under the radar with only one single user review on Steam.

I will also fully admit that Planetary Annihilation: TITANS has pulled me back in too. While the addition of a Unicorn commander was a little amusing, I found myself wanting to go back and throw an entire moon at someone. Such a huge RTS, the scale of it is crazy and it's really wonderful to see the newer developer (Planetary Annihilation Inc took over from Uber Ent) keep polishing the experience.

There's also a fair bit of Titanfall 2. I can't tell you how happy I am that it works so well on Linux with Steam Play Proton. It seems the Steam release has given the 2016 shooter an entirely new life, who would have thought? It's repeatedly breaking new player records too with over 11 thousand online in it right now.

Over to you in the comments again: what have you been playing and what are you clicking on across the weekend?

Left 4 Dead 2 - Steam

Some of my friends and family have been trying out the default & workshop campaigns on Expert and Realism mode. It's been brutal but lots of fun.

Tekken 7 - Steam

My new main is Gigas. I got Akuma and Miguel up to True Tekken God. I will try to prime but Gigas has been a lot of fun to play. Friends and I will be setting up a tournament amoung our small group this coming Saturday for bragging rights.

Overland -

I finally made it to the Grassland and I was very close to making it to the end when a rouge human betrayed my ppl. Excellent game.

Mortal Kombat 11 - Stadia

Johnny Cage is still my main but I'm now learning Jax and really feeling his command grabs. I did the Father's day event which was a nice treat. One of my friends has really master Jade and has been a good rival as I master Cage and others.

Quoting: jarhead_hBE-A-Walker and "Ion Fury". Gonna fire up "Missile Command" and "Get to the Orange Door"....

I have the Get to the Orange Door on my wishlist. Its good?

There's a learning curve, the parkor controls are not perfect, get's used to VELOCITY, you want to be on the move, and fast. The first gun you get sucks, you will die a lot, no really, YOU WILL DIE A LOT, but when it all comes together it's frantic and fun.

The new Missile Command is equally surprising. Surprised at the difficulty which ramps up quickly. Both games have a neon neo-80's aesthetic, and are really gorgeous for it without a bogging down the GPU.
