Oh, hey! We didn't miss the weekend this time. Time for another community chat and giving out your latest recommendations.

After mentioning last time about my current love affair with the Raspberry Pi 4, that has very much continued. Everything seems to be holding up nicely on it. There's been plenty of Steam Link game streaming, which has been quite the highlight due to how smoothly it has been working.

For actual games though, I'm going to take this moment to totally plug CARRION again (see my review) because it's just wonderfully crafted. I'm now onto my second play-through to see if there are any fun things I missed. Sounds like it's been quite a successful launch too.

Here's a bit of trivia for you: the levels in CARRION were almost entirely made using Tiled, a free and open source general purpose tile map editor.

If you're stuck for something to play, here's a quick reminder on some good deals:

Over to you in the comments: what have you been gaming on Linux lately?

I have been mostly playing Space Haven. It's kind of spaceship building game combined with fleet management.

As it's in early access, there's more stuff coming. Also everything doesn't yet work perfectly, but that's to be expected with alpha builds.

But as of now I have had fun building more ships into the fleet and hoping that pirates don't come to destroy the defenseless unfinished ship. Not that they will away with that anymore. If they dare to try hit and run too many times, they will get obliterated.

While doing that, essential resources are running low and there's danger that fleet ships lose power one by one, which means that all other resources essential for life support will run out of too...

Finally had time to look at Dead Cells, which seems ok 15 minutes in.

The Raven Remastered (I have played the original a couple of years ago and liked it quite much. The story, even if it has a few little plot holes, is very nice)

Primordia: A real oldie, with an exceptional story. You play as a robot in a dystopian world and wonder, if robots were really created by man to maintain the world? Or is man is just a myth, an esoteric belief that a rational robot should ignore. (I confess, I am playing that one with a walkthrough, it is pretty hard and I play this one just for the story)

Beyond a Steel Sky: I just started, can't say anything yet about the game.

Cows vs. Vikings: A nice tower defense game.

Been focusing on consoles with the release of "Ghost of Tsushima" though I have been replaying/modding "Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines" and recently completed "Vampire: The Masquerade - Corteries of New York."

While cleaning house I dusted off my old PS2 and realized I have the full set of the ".hack" series. So I'll be pulling the BIOS from my PS2 and playing ".hack" via PCSX2.

I'm happy to mention that I still playing Euro Truck Simulator 2

Right now I'm still working from home which means I don't have a fixed work time. Thanks to this, sometime I forgot to stop working which leads to burn out in the next day. In other hand, I can't afford to play game for too long because it might took me a long time to push myself back to work. With that said, ETS2 hit the good spots for me.

So far in ETS2 I still don't have any truck, so I still took the quick job which is about 30-60 minutes for me. It's long enough for me to take a break from my job, but still shorts enough so I don't lose motivation to work.
