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.

Quoting: RoosterI'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.

I'm playing KC:D too and I'm absolutely loving it. The nature representation in this game is stunning, the historical setting is interesting and really done well, the level of immersion is so high... I'm even enjoying the side quests. I think this game is surpassing every expectation I had and I'm liking it way more than Skyrim, which felt way more bland an generic. I can actually recall some memorable moments I had hours ago, which is way more than what I can say about most of the open world games I've played in the past. Great game, highly recommended.

Oh yeah, don't get me wrong, it's a great game, which achieved a whole new levels of immersion for me. At which quest in the main storyline are you at?

I pretty much postponed the main story as soon as I could so that I could immerse myself in the world and do the sidequests. Especially since the fighting can be pretty brutal unless you're locked and loaded. I was also pretty engrossed with the first hours, so I'm highly anticipating going through the main storyline. The only things I needed to do to improve the experience were replacing the standard UI with a minimalistic one and add the infinite savegames... because I actually have a life. All in all those were just minor tweaks for what is an awesome game. Also it runs very well (48-60 fps) @1080p with everything at max and vkbasalt + reshade on my trusty RX480.
