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

Posted by , | Views: 20,103
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

Return to Castle Wolfenstein (native) and Vampire: The Masquerade Bloodlines which was recently released on GOG (Wine). Both are classics.

I'm a recent convert to Linux. I've installed it periodically for over a decade always going back to windows for one reason or another. The last reason was games. A couple months ago I realize that virtually every single game that I have played in the last two years is now on Linux and virtually everything coming out that I want to play is also on Linux. It's like I'm somehow the target linux gamer. So I've made the final jump and sticking with it this go around. So far it's been great.


Stellaris - Up Next
Talos Principle
Civilization Beyond Earth
Shadowrun Hong Kong
Shadownrun Dragonfall

noinformationhereI finally played the Talos Principle. It started slowly and I was a bit sceptical at first, but it eventually showed why it got so many rave reviews. Very very clever. It has been compared to Portal, but it has a unique way of looking at things. Puzzles can be challenging but always fair.

I really wish I could discuss Talos Principle without spoiling it for people as the story is based on one of my favorite concepts. Definitely a favorite of mine.

QuoteThe Masquerade Bloodlines which was recently released on GOG

Shmerl, how do you get GOG games to launch on Debian? Do they need 32 bit libraries?

Tomb Raider and Darkest Dungeon.

Both were pretty awesome, but I got really hooked on Darkest Dungeon - first time in a while that's happened for me with a game.
