I have yet to give Bound By Flame a real good go, but it's really good to see this Action/RPG game get some support with a new patch in beta.

Fixes
- Fix of several crashes with some specific equipment (PS3 pad, Microsoft keyboards with a Joystick...)
- Native support for PS3/PS4 pads
- Fix of an issue with some specific keyboards

How to get it
To access the beta: right click on Bound by Flame in your library > properties > "Betas" tab > Select "beta_linux" > Close properties

Let us know how you get on folks. Has anyone finished the game, what did you think overall?

It would be nice if they could fix the dodgy camera. Article taken from GamingOnLinux.com.

Finished it three times. Certainly was worth the money, expected a lot worse than it was. As expected, a very straight forward not really dialog-based story (a few choices about which way you're going, more demon-way or more human way), but a fun game. The gameplay / controls (playing keyboard/mouse) was sometimes rubbish, but I can see it work better with controllers (still need to get my steam controller).

The thing which was a bit annoying was the difficulty-jump to the end. Through the whole game, it was combat wise not really challenging at all, you didn't need a lot of tricks or potions anywhere, and the last boss was like a jump from 0 to 100. Even the end seems to be abrupt. Gave me the feeling that they had to cut the storyline to actually get the game out for what ever reason. That's of course just speculation on my side.

Overall I can recommend it if you like this genre of games, for the price tag it has, it was a lot of fun to me. It was even a steal a while back on steam at a sales.

it has so called "heavy gameplay" which is not liked by many people. you either have power or agility, never both and this requires more thought put into strategy. if you go and watch dark souls you'll notice the same pattern... use the weapon with most damage and roll like crazy and this doesn't work here, this is why reviews on this game are so poor

for me personally it was best buy i did

I agree, but put in heavy gameplay just on one encounter makes no sense. That's not fully thought through and bad done, or it was just the pre-game and an end-encounter because they realized they couldn't finish the game otherwhise. Sorry ;-).

But I agree, one of the better picks. Though, I personally enjoyed Shadow of Mordor a bit more. And my best pick certainly was Mount&Blade: Warband .
