What have you been playing on Linux? Come and have a chat

By - | Views: 20,227

Ah Sunday, that special day that's a calm before the storm of another week and a time for a community chat here on GOL. Today, it's our birthday! If you didn't see the post earlier this week, GamingOnLinux as of today has hit the big 11 years old! Oh how time sure flies by.

Onto the subject of gaming on Linux: honestly, the majority of my personal game time has been taken up by Into the Breach. It's so gorgeously streamlined, accessible, fun and it's also ridiculously complex at the same time. Tiny maps that require a huge amount of forward thinking, as you weigh up each movement decision against any possible downsides. It's like playing chess, only with big mecha fighting off aliens trying to take down buildings.

It's quite surprising how much room there is for coming up with a strategy, as the game continues surprising me many hours later with what's possible. Made by the same team behind FTL, Into the Breach reminds me of the same feeling I got when first discovering FTL and having that nagging need in the back of my mind calling me back to play more. Fantastic game.

I've also been quite disappointed in Crayta on Stadia, as it so far hasn't lived up to even my smallest expectations for the game maker. It just seems so half-baked, with poor/stiff animations and a lack of any meaningful content to start with. I'll be checking back on it in a few months but for now it's just not fun.

Over to you in the comments: what games have been taking up your time over the last week? Let us know what you've found to be particularly interesting.

Quoting: BigPoppaI also continued my never-ending quest to try and finish Pathfinder:Kingmaker. Maybe this time I've finally settled on a PC I'll stick with through the end.

Does Pathfinder: Kingmaker work for you with the latest kernel?

Still playing "Surviving Mars" on Linux and "Dawn of Man" on Linux/Wine, waiting for "Horizon Zero Dawn" ...

Quoting: robvvCurrently playing The Bard's Tale IV. A really-good Skyrim-like RPG with many puzzles and good battles!

The original game The Bard's Tale is actually one of the games I just added to Steam with my old Humble Bundle keys. I've never actually played it, but it's one of the games I consider to be in my backlog.

Satisfactory. Had to take some time off work just to play. It just sucks you in.

I'm running it on Ubuntu 20.04 with the current updates and it's running fine. I'm also using an Nvidia GPU and the proprietary drivers.

What kind of issue are you seeing?

My guess is it's AMD specific.

I also just checked and it seems to run okay. I fired up the game and then loaded a save. I didn't play long enough to see if anything further caused issues. hardware and os info: X99 Extreme 4, i7-5820K, MSI 1660ti, 32GB, Fedora 32, 5.7.7-200.fc32.x86_64

I bought the DLC this Steam sale, but haven't had a chance to play it yet. I went a little wild this sale.

Probably even Navi specific. So unless you have a Navi GPU, it won't trigger this bug.
