What have you been playing? Have a Sunday chat with us

Another week comes to a close and there's been a number of fun releases lately - so come have another community chat in the comments about what you've been playing.

For me here, to I'm sure no surprise, there's been a rather lot of Metro Exodus since it's now released for Linux. Quite a beauty this one, another game where (like Valheim), I find myself taking screenshots constantly because some of the scenes are just awesome or completely surprising.

Here's a few fun shots of it in my travels so far (click to enlarge):

4A Games and Deep Silver managed to do a Linux port that does perform very well. However, it's not without issues. It eats ram for breakfast, lunch and dinner - there's what seems to be a memory leak somewhere which has been seen across both AMD and NVIDIA. We've been told they have confirmed the issue in support tickets - so they are aware it's a problem.

No doubt I will be returning to Valheim once this is finished with…

Voxel Tycoon is also sucking up some of my time, it's capturing me in a way that other building, management and logistical sims haven't before. The thought of building up through an endless work is quite enticing to get everything working together.

Over to you: what have you been playing recently and what are your thoughts on it? Give over your latest and greatest recommendations to fellow GOL readers.

I'm at the last quest of Kingdom Come: Deliverence (Proton). I really like the historic realistic aspect of it, especially since I live in the country it is taking place in. If it wasn't for so many tedious quests, it would have been one of my all time favorites.

Been trying No Man's Sky via proton. Seems to run just fine. Aside from the main plot missions, I'm not sure how much I'm in to it. Everything seems cumbersome, from the building, to the exploring, to the foot and space combat.

I think it's made with a controller in mind, maybe I'll try it with a steam controller and see if that helps.

My clearing-the-backlog plan stalled when I hit Northgard, which has now somewhat monopolised my gaming time.

My little one recently discovered the Minecraft Create mod, so I think that's what he's going to be doing for a while.

Dungeons 3 and Zaccaria Pinball for me, with some non-native sinning because of Hitman 2.

Both me and my little one found NMS to be fine with kb/m. There's a setting in the controls ("Locked") to make flight less weird. The building system is really clunky, though.

Borderlands 3 has been taking all my gaming time. I got through the main story and 2 DLCs so far, but still a load of content to go. Total madness I tell you!

Yeah, I just found that setting for flight. I think that will help a lot. I think part of my gripe with flight is that, for the most part, I've only ever used a joystick with all other flight games I've played. So I'm very not used to mouse based flight. That's not the games fault though.

It's a very cute game, though. And it does make me want to explore more. I can see how it would be a ton of fun with a few friends or family members

Currently playing The Witcher via Proton, planning on doing the whole trilogy.
Been playing good old Exhumed/Powerslave using the Raze engine. I get quickly get bored with modern shooters, with the exception of a few. Old ones though keep shining no matter what.

As for the recent Metro Exodus release, I'm still waiting (and hopefully) for it to make it to GOG too. I've done a full playthrough in Wine already but wouldn't mind a round 2.
