What have you been playing lately? It's chat time

By - | Views: 11,177

Wow, the end of another week over here in the surprisingly hot and sunny UK. Perfect weather to be sat inside playing games and there's been plenty of that here.

Thanks to the news of Celeste coming to Stadia, I was reminded of the fact that Celeste was in the recent itch.io charity bundle so I've been able to give it a thorough go after only previously playing it at a friends PC. I already liked it a lot but now I've sunk plenty more hours into it I'm totally blown away by it. It's truly no surprise to me now why it has amassed such a following, like on Steam where it has over twenty thousand views an an overall Overwhelmingly Positive rating.

For the Linux version, Celeste appears to be another example of a finely tuned experience with no issues encountered for me at all. If you've not tried Celeste yet, do give it a go. Getting those darn Strawberries has become my most painful mission, like the time I caught a particularly tricky one after 30 minutes of failed attempts only for my thumb to slip off the gamepad stick at a vital step afterwards…

It really does get intense and actually managing to catch each one feels so good. Difficult? Absolutely. However, it's pretty much the perfected experience of challenging platforming with lovely pixel-art and beautiful audio to top it off. If you don't own Celeste you can grab it from itch.io, Humble Store and Steam.

Over to you: what have you been gaming on Linux recently? Have a chat in the comments.

Quoting: toojaysIt's a great game. Highly recommended. If you've any doubt, there's a free demo

I actually already own the game, just gotta be motivated to play it. I also have witcher 3 which I was going to mod to hell and back and start a new play through.

Quoting: TheRiddickAs a off-topic question if anyone knows, I have a B350 mobo atm and a B550 upgrade coming soon, does anyone know of any issues just swapping mobo out? is there any Linux B550 chipset issues or work arounds I need to know about?


Swapping motherboard out is usually totally fine, provided the Linux distro you are running has an up to date kernel that supports that board. I've done this several times before, it's pretty amazing to witness. DO NOT try the same thing on Windows, you'll be in for a mess.

Been playing through Black Mesa and really enjoying it! I just recently got to Xen. It's fantastic! It takes the worst part of Half-Life, and so far it's one of the best parts of Black Mesa. CC did an amazing job taking what's already a wonderful game and making it near perfect.

I am working on my pile of shame and started The Talos Principle. It is like Portal with other flavour. Nice one.
Still cannot seem to be able to finish Dwarf Fortress...
