What have you been gaming on Linux recently? Come have a chat

By - | Views: 25,899

It's been a little while since we had a community-chat post to round-up what you've all been gaming on Linux lately, so let's have a chat shall we.

We're all a bit spoilt for choice thanks to the likes of native Linux games, Steam Play Proton, cloud game streaming, lots of great emulators and more that you can all do right on Linux. This often makes choosing a game to play rather difficult doesn't it? It does for me.

I end up quite often going back to what I see as comfort games, those that you can just repeat over and over and you know them well, like a gaming comfort blanket with the likes of XCOM 2, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Streets of Rogue and others but there's a new one in my own personal list: Ziggurat 2 which released into Early Access with Linux support in late October.

Milkstone Studios seem to have crafted an absolutely magical first-person dungeon crawler, that I can quite easily see myself putting hundreds of hours into. There's something so supremely satisfying about running around a room waving a wand or a staff around, unleashing powering magics on somewhat freaky enemies (like those damn running carrots). When you get into the boss battles, it really gets your blood flowing too.

Over to you in the comments: what have you been gaming on Linux lately? Let us know what you've newly discovered, what you keep going back to and more.

Quoting: Anders1232I'm still playing Total War Warhammer 2. Just hitted 750 hrs on it last week. Playing as Tomb Kings now. I'm also playing Divinity: Original Sin Enchanced Edition and I'm loving it. Already got Divinity: Original Sin 2 and and teamed up with friends to do a 4-player coop on it.
The Tomb Kings are my favourite faction in TW: Warhammer 2 (together with Lizardmens). What I didn't like in the TW: Warhammer 1 and 2 was the diplomacy. When the enemy faction is travelling in your territory and you declare a war on them, you are the bad one. If this is done by the AI it is considered fine. And the opinion on you always going down is also not very nice. I can understand this in the factions that hate each other, but if this is actually your ally, it's strange.

Quoting: Anders1232Edit:
One sad thing I must add is that I'm using proton to play Total War Warhammer 2, since the GNU/Linux version of it is outdated, doesn't even have the warden & the paunch DLC.
I didn't know the Feral didn't ported it yet. I'm surprised, they usually follow very quickly after release. Does this means, they have some issues? Their radar is also pretty empty :-(

I didn't realised that. AFAIK declaring war on a faction which relations are bad doesn't reduce your reliability.

I agree, on the other DLCs they taken one or 2 weeks to do the port. Hope they're doing ok.

OMG, ten pages of comments. I should just wait for this weekend's post. :P
I've been barely playing Rise of the Tomb Raider. Sunk too many hours researching single-board computers.

Jeez, where have you been all week?? These games aren't going to play themselves you know!

Side note - I've set my user profile options to display 25 comments per page, so this is only a 4-page thread. But yeah. That's a lot of reading and a lot of games being played!
