GOL asks: what are you playing? Come chat

By - | Views: 16,783

As another week comes to a close it's time to have a chat with the GOL readership about what you're all playing lately, come and let us know.

This week saw the release of the absolutely magical Spiritfarer. I can't get over how wonderful a game it is, fully deserving of all the praise it has been receiving. Taking care of spirits, while doing a little building and crafting on your fancy boat while also giving out hugs to those spirits that need it. Absolute joy.

Spiritfarer is just so lovely, we're going to need Sin to livestream it I think. Keep an eye on our Twitch Channel for that. Although, with 7 Days to Die Alpha 19 being out it's going to be difficult to tear Sin away from it.

Quite a bit of my own personal time has also been testing out NVIDIA GeForce NOW. It's another game streaming service, which recently opened up to Chromebooks / ChromeOS in the browser so it works on Linux too. You can see a video of Fortnite running here as another example. It's certainly an interesting service but I still personally much prefer Stadia technically speaking, as I find it just works much better overall but I won't deny how good NVIDA did the game access side of things by it using existing accounts for people. Over the next many years, it will be very interesting to see all these cloud services fight for users.

I've also personally continued playing Orcs Must Die! 3 on Stadia with a partner, the huge battleground battles are just so much fun it's ridiculous. Getting to launch catapults at hundreds of Orcs, while another is running around hacking away at them is quite a sight.

As a reminder of some deals going:

I've been playing Rocksmith 2014 until my fingers were sore. It works great if you use the ASIO support and add WineASIO into your proton prefix.

Quoting: aokami
Quoting: fagnerlnSome Linux games on GoG can't run anymore as it uses outdated libs, needing expertise to set the environment. As they don't support Linux in their Galaxy client (don't even allow to download). I'll never buy anything on GoG, until they support us like we deserve. Steam > GoG, f*** this DRM philosophy.

Have tried checking Lutris installers ?
Usually people try the best to keep the games working there, it might be worth a shot.

Oh, I forget about Lutris, I will try it.
