What play button have you been clicking on lately?

Oh, hey! We didn't miss the weekend this time. Time for another community chat and giving out your latest recommendations.

After mentioning last time about my current love affair with the Raspberry Pi 4, that has very much continued. Everything seems to be holding up nicely on it. There's been plenty of Steam Link game streaming, which has been quite the highlight due to how smoothly it has been working.

For actual games though, I'm going to take this moment to totally plug CARRION again (see my review) because it's just wonderfully crafted. I'm now onto my second play-through to see if there are any fun things I missed. Sounds like it's been quite a successful launch too.

Here's a bit of trivia for you: the levels in CARRION were almost entirely made using Tiled, a free and open source general purpose tile map editor.

If you're stuck for something to play, here's a quick reminder on some good deals:

Over to you in the comments: what have you been gaming on Linux lately?

Quoting: SchattenspiegelAs of this morning :The Longing Has Ended:

how? i thought u need to play :THE LONGING: for 400 days..? :)

For the weekly GOL poll:
I played Divinity: OS 2, now that it runs well with proton. Really impressive game. First try in 2019 cost me 70+ hours, then it just used to crash in a bigger fight.
With the new Proton I played it through, it's 300+ hours now. Can't wait for Baldur's Gate 3 though I didn't play part 1 & 2. Larian will do this.

Can't remember who it was recently mentioned Killing Floor 2, but I downloaded all 80Gb of it and started levelling up my support perk again. Great game, but frustrating when to get a bad team. In KF1, healing your team mates was a given (healing others is like a 60% heal, while healing yourself is about 25%)... but in KF2, it just doesn't happen. Still enjoying it though. Amazing gunplay, very satisfying when you put it all together.

Otherwise, I'm on a three day break to the Borders right, so I'm on my laptop, and started playing Tales of Maj'Eyal again. Lots of nice QOL improvements, still the amazing, frustrating, epic experience I remember! Still my second most played game of all time too!

How are the difficulty/motivation curves in D:OS2 in your opinion? A friend and me where a little disappointed by the second half of the first one and are thus somewhat reluctant to have a go at the second title.

Alas, this past week has been little more than Story of Seasons: Friends of Mineral Town (Switch) and The Last of Us: Part 2 (PS4). Think I'm coming to the end of the latter, so may have more time for Linux gaming next week...
Quoting: crabelPrimordia: A real oldie, with an exceptional story. You play as a robot in a dystopian world and wonder, if robots were really created by man to maintain the world? Or is man is just a myth, an esoteric belief that a rational robot should ignore. (I confess, I am playing that one with a walkthrough, it is pretty hard and I play this one just for the story)
I sort of stopped playing point & click games a while ago, but I did get this on GOG a few years ago. I really enjoyed the writing and art-style. You are right that it isn't particularly easy, so don't feel bad about using a walkthrough. I think I had to look up a couple things when I got stuck.

I think someone should grab this game writer and do a larger budget game in that world.

Skyrim VR (with 21 mods). I am addicted and can't stop playing it. Help me!

I finished the Fallout 4 main campaign last week!
... And, to my surprise, I still want to keep on playing. I totally expected to be done with it now, after all I'm closing in on 300 hours played now - but there's still some hours left in me for that game. Needless to say, I love Fallout.
