It has again been a while since we ask you, our wonderful community about your gaming picks recently, so let's have another chat in the comments. Sunday for a lot of people is a time for rest, relaxation and plenty of gaming!
Before you jump down to that comments box, here's what I've been playing plenty of recently.
It might come as no surprise but I've been diving into plenty of Half-Life: Alyx. Still not completed it yet, as it's been a regular slot in our Twitch livestreams (come follow us!). Mind-blowing is pretty much an understatement on how excellent it really is. Given how SteamVR on Linux is still quite rough, it's been very stable too - with one single hard lock up during my current 16 hour time spent in it. There's so much to enjoy about it I don't know where to start and end talking about it.
With such an experience it's pretty overloading, there's so many things I've missed that's going to need another play-through to catch all the details put into it. I'm constantly discovering small details that really make it great.
Over to you in the comments: what have you been playing and is it any good?
Warhammer Online: Return of Reckoning (wine/DXVK) - My go to PvP MMORPG fix. https://www.returnofreckoning.com
Mafia Definitive Edition (proton) - currently ~9 hours in. Looks good and plays mostly good. Hate the cover button, but i unbounded it and playing it more like the classic. Voiceacting is top notch, story is a bit changed from the original, but follows the same line mostly, just adds more.
Portal: Reloaded (native) - My brain just melts.. im stuck at the 14th of the puzzle. The time traveling adds brain melting difficulty to the puzzles, but its fun.

Loving the game so far. Excellent emersion and interesting story.
Total War: Rome remastered: Sorry Spain, if one of my truest allies attacks me from behind when I'm least prepared, it can only end one way...

I also got a Logitech G27 steering wheel, which I'm using to do awesome drifts in DRAG.
A bit of BattleZone Command Commander and Voxel Tycoon too...
Lego Marvel Avengers ( proton ) in split screen, I play it with my daughter. Its fun and the story it is like in the movies.
Also had a go at the backer beta of Arcadian Atlas. So far it's Windows-only, and has the issue common to many Unity-based titles that it requires native Windows Media Foundation for video playback. But from the communication it seems like they might provide a native version at a later date. Keeping my fingers crossed.
I spend most of my gaming time on battlefield V multiplayer and art of rally. Since I will have a lot of free time for the next two weeks ( I'm a Covid contact case ) wasteland 3 will probably be my main go to game.
See more from me
