Confused on Steam Play and Proton? Be sure to check out our guide.

Looks like the next Humble Choice bundle is going to be reasonably good, with Metro Exodus headlining.

Now that there's a Linux port available that performs well, this might perhaps entice a few people into Humble Choice to pick up a good deal. Usually it costs $39.99 on Steam without any discounts, so the Humble Choice for May is a good way to get it which usually costs about $19.99 for the whole set. Humble have also announced that for May's Humble Choice there will be Darksiders Genesis, Hellpoint, and 9 more games so it seems like overall it's going to be quite a good one.

Additionally, they announced a big discount for new subscribers at $9 a month for three months, if you sign up before May 4 which is when the next bundle lands. It's not clear what region that discount is for (might be US only), as in the UK it's showing me an offer of 40% off each month for a year. Either way, looks like May's Humble Choice will be worth picking up at least.

Check out the Humble Choice if interested.

I don't know for other people but even with a GeForce 2070 SUPER on Debian Bullseye (KDE) I faced dozens of crashes on Metro Exodus. Looks like the port is a bit sloppy given the testimonies on Steam. However the game is damn beautiful... when it works.

Nice! It's been a long time since I was tempted by an Humble Choice. Played through Darksiders Genesis with my son (local coop). We had quite a blast!

Don't worry about it; saying it's a bugfest is exagerated, but still lots of annoying bugs on Windows too. I did 2 playthrough and witnessed lots of crashes.

Seeing mixed reports apart from the current AMD issues which will be solved in Mesa. For me, the crashes I've had all happen on Windows too from lots of Windows user reports. I've been very happy with the performance but even on Windows it's super buggy overall - but still also somehow a great game.

That's true. I loved the Caspian See level especially, which is a true open world.

I unsubscribed this month.
I guess I don't count as a new membership if I subscribe again...
Well, €13.99 for 3 games is still a good deal as I would like to play Metro Exodus.

I only played it for a few minutes, sure seems with all the things turned on, it's going to require more than my 2080... if only 3080s were actually sold at a sane price...

So I shouldn't even consider buying this with 1080. Gotcha.

I have a 1080 and it performs great.

From what I'm reading the Metro game has issues with AMD RADV atm. This is not surprising since its a NVIDIA first game. One of the reasons I never bothered to buy it.

It actually runs fine in medium settings on a mobile Geforce 970m @ 1920x1080. No idea why you would think you need a 3080? Maybe at 4K?
