What have you been playing recently? Come chit-chat with us

By - | Views: 19,038

It's been quite a while since we had a community chat post for Linux gaming, so let's get it going again: what have you been gaming on Linux lately?

There's so many games releasing all the time, along with cloud gaming very much being a thing that you can game across all sorts of Linux devices now. New isn't always better though of course and I often go back to the comfort of a few "safety" games that I know I will enjoy. Lately, that's been a likely unhealthy amount of Counter-Strike: Global Offensive.

With the latest Operation named Broken Fang, it pulled in the a Retakes game mode and I have to say, I have been enjoying that massively. It's much quicker to get through, with the T side planting the bomb as soon as a round starts. Smaller levels along with picking your loadout from cards, it really has mixed up how to play CS:GO for the better. The Wingman mode is also a huge amount of fun with quick 2v2 rounds. Well worth looking into if you've not played either modes.

Apart from that, I can't get away without mentioning Valheim, the singleplayer and co-op Viking survival game. It's simply brilliant. I've been happily playing it alone, as I'm just constantly discovering new things and it's a real joy while now and then hopping into the community-run GamingOnLinux servers (info in our Discord) to see what amazing creations people have done with the building tools.

Over to you in the comments: what's been pulling you in lately and are you enjoying it? Give over your latest recommendation to fellow readers.

A mix of Tales of Symphonia, 嗜血印 Bloody Spell a chinese souls/DMC mix which runs quite well on proton and Death Stranding, and trying to platinum Nier Automata on the side. Also trying to find the time to finish Atelier Ryza but got a bit tired before the end, probably will come back to it later.

As Far As The Eye is finally natively on Linux and went onto discount, so I gave that a try last week. It's nice, recommended! Reminds much of the xcom series, also Battle Isle.

Besides that, I also played the 2016 released "Particle Fleet: Emergence", play time 229 hours according to Steam (lies! ;). One can filter for user created maps with high rating, there are so good maps..

After 175+ hours I finally finished Assassin's Creed Odyssey last week. It was hard trying to select and start up a new game but luckily Desperados III went on sale for 50% off so I broke my 75%+ off rule (with a 5000+ game backlog I gotta set some limits...) and bought the Deluxe edition. I just finished the fourth level and mechanically it's at least as good as Shadow Tactics, though I think the latter had a better story and honestly I just prefer the Japanese setting. Still a great game either way, highly recommended!

After some time on Dicey Dungeons (discovered here !), I'm now starting a full rerun of the three Witcher games. The first one hasn't aged really well...

Played that again in December. Don't agree that it didn't age well. It's a bit ... odd. But if you accept that the game mechanics are the way they are, it still holds up quite well. Especially considering it was basically an indie game.

The usual FreeOrion, but a few weeks ago I started playing Xonotic as well. Turns out I missed some good old arena action, playing it pretty regularly, 1-2 hour-sessions.

Quoting: benkeJust bought Baltic and Black Sea DLCs so I am back to ETS2 :-)
I've had the Italian, French, and Scandinavian DLCs for a while and never really played them. But at the moment (for reasons we needn't go into) I need something not-too-demanding that can be paused at a moment's notice. ETS2 is perfect.

I started a full run a few months ago, but ended up going straight to TW2 because I have fond memories of it and no patience. But the first one hasn't aged as badly as I thought it would.

(And I still haven't finished my re-run through TW2. I don't think I've ever finished it on PC. Let's be honest... that final chapter gets a bit tedious.)
