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.

Been playing Mortal Online 2 during its Stress Test phase. Its been interesting to say the least. Might continue playing depending on how they handle several issues going forward.

I do want to try Exodus, probably won't run great on my 6800XT being a NVIDIA first title, at least at 4k. Will see.

Finally got around to installing Wine 6.0... I tried out AIO-Sandbox 1.9, which creates a light-weight WoW server for older versions of WoW that can be viewed offline. It is very light-weight in that there are no NPCs, monsters, or quests. It just lets you run around in the game world offline, which is actually pretty neat. I had earlier gotten an older version of AIO-Sandbox (1.5) to work with Wine 5.0, but I could only view WoW alpha/beta builds with that version. AIO-Sandbox 1.9 lets me see TBC/WotLK content...

For anyone interested, it can be downloaded here:

Battletoads (2020). What a shitty game. Bad design, bad gameplay, bad controls, bad humour. I didn't expect it to be good but I thought it would be at least mediocre. But no, I cannot even find a single good thing about it. It also has problems with video scenes unless it runs on Proton-GE.

Quoting: Liam DaweMy own Metro Exodus fun was shortlived. Now crashes reliably in the desert after I explore there for 5 minutes. Have logged my own support ticket now.
Curiously, turns out Windows users have lots of crashes in the same area. So at least the hardlocks in my case are not specific to Linux. Windows users suggestions were to lower graphics, so I did and sure enough - no more desert crashes <_<

Still leaking memory though, uses far too much. I sure do hope Metro devs fix this up as I would be happy to buy the DLC then too.

Do you have the bug that makes enemies spot you when you use the night vision googles?

Finished my first run of Cyberpunk 2077 over the weekend. Contrary to most people, I loved the game. Will continue doing side missions and eventually seeing the other endings too, but at much slower pace -Hoping to see some DLC throughout the year-

Armello is another game that has been getting some playtime lately. Very well thought and great to relax and play online with some friends weekly. Happy to play with "GoLers" if someone is interested too.

Mass Effect Trilogy Remaster is coming in a month, so RPGs are out of the question for now. I might try to start The Council or some others slow paced/narrative based games for the time being.

This weekend i played a lot of Path of Exile (Proton) with my friends. Last week i played Hired Ops (proton), OpenTTD, and Shadow Warrior. I also bought in my library on steam Last Epoch to support the developers for making a linux native version, i am gonna wait a little bit until i start playing, to give them some time to fix more bugs and to get away from PoE addiction with the new season. Wish i had more time to play games.

I have played Starsector a lot but it ultimately disapoint me because of its rhythm ( Spaceship can't go at 5km/h ! ).
I have then played a itch.io visual novel ( https://perverteer.itch.io/tales-from-the-unending-void ) that have a very nice space op adventure vibe. The banner is uninspiring but adventure is thrilling and inter character relationship is rich.
Itch really should have more coverage here.
