Sunday chat: What have you been playing, and what do you think?

Posted by , | Views: 19,738
It's Sunday, I'm extremely tired after a long day and I've been coding away at the new PC Specifications feature for user profiles so I don't really have time to post up news articles tonight (it's getting late). So I ask you: What are you playing, and what do you think?

I've been playing Stellaris, and you will know what I think about it tomorrow! I've already sunk 5.3 hours into it according to Steam, blimey!

Apart from that I have been enjoying Tomb Raider up to the last fire-fight I was in where sadly the framerate went really bad and it became a struggle. I don't really want to play any more right now until they put out some form of performance patch as that last bit I did sadly soured it for me.

As for random news, we are aware the new Doom has been shown off running on Vulkan, I'm not going to give it a news article since it's not coming to Linux and really doesn't mean anything for us directly (you can stop sending it in now :P) Article taken from

I played Hyper Light Drifter today and was playing CS:GO, RONIN & NOT A HERO the last week. I should also begin to play Tomb Raider & Inifinifactory...

I feel the same way about Tomb Raider. That game is on hold for me until some patches come out. Until then, I'll be tolerating occasional graphical bugs in ARK.

Saints Row 2 is fun!

About Doom, it’s nice to see Vulkan gaining some traction and hype outside our little circle even if Doom itself isn’t interesting.

Tomb Raider and Divinity Original Sin co-op with my brother.

Tomb Raider is great, the first one I have really played actually (thanks Feral! ) Just hope they fix the performance a little.
Divinity OS is the first Divinity game I played too Yeah, we're stuck... but stuck further in the game than if I were to play by myself.

Beat Hazard, Pillars of Eternity and Bioshock Inifnite at the moment. Beat hazard is an excellent game that you can pick up and put down easily. Nice tool to help wind down with.

Pillars of Eternity has been fun, interesting and challenging, definitely takes me back to playing the Baldur's Gate series. Has taken me a while to refresh myself on the mechanics!

Bioshock Infinite well picked it up a while ago on sale and have only got around to playing it now, not too sure about it yet.

After watching your streams I very much want Stellaris, It's an internal struggle at the moment!

mainly Hearthstone since Faeria has been having graphical issues again. I finally was able to grab Dungeons 2 on sale to check it out. seems fun but nothing really spectacular. I'm looking forward to grabbing Stellaris myself soonish. that looks really promising.
Just bought Warhammer quest deluxe on humble bundle store for $2.99 and vertiginous golf for $4.99. going to give them a go here soon.
Really looking forward to the 1.0 release of Starbound, following their dev blog they have been adding in so much content for this major release that it's mind boggling.

Planet Explorers is finally shaping up to a more stable build now once again since their update to Unity 5. they are creeping closer to a 1.0 build, although very slowly.

Total War: Warhammer is one game I want to buy as soon as it's released for Linux. very much looking forward to this one.

also can't wait for Stardew Valley to be released for Linux.

I've been playing The Detail. It's an episodic point & click crime drama. The final episode came out a week and a half or so ago, so I scooped up the game then (I don't buy episodic games until all episodes are out). It's a really dark and gritty game and I'm liking it so far. I'm approximately halfway through episode 2 (of 3).

I've also been playing Saints Row 2 with the GotR Mod. The occasional stutter can be annoying and the game randomly CTDs far too often for my liking, but I'm willing to put up with it because it's such a great game, plus there's no point in waiting for a patch since the Windows port this is based on is garbage to begin with and will never be fixed properly.

Finished up Saints Row 2 a week or two ago (which was fun despite the pervasive performance/stuttering issues which have already been mentioned by other folks here), and have been digging into Saints Row 3. Was a nice breath of fresh air after the SR2 performance problems - driving is actually fun again!

I'd started on Alien:Isolation the night before the SR2+SR3 ports dropped and, alas, I have yet to get back to it. Once I finish up with SR3 I'll probably dive back in there.

Shadowrun Hong Kong, mostly. Been trying a couple different character types to experiment with cyberware and whatnot.
