What are you clicking on this weekend and what do you think about it?

Good morning, it's question time here again on GamingOnLinux as we enter another weekend. Wipe that sleep from your eyes, grab a drink and come chat.

This weekend I have a tasty menu waiting, including some glorious flailing about in Rocket League (40% off on Humble). Even though 99% of my games are mostly me chasing the ball, watching it enter my goal from afar I still find it completely addictive. I'm slowly starting to learn how to do those slick rocket jumps (I even saved a goal by doing one—go me), but they're certainly not easy to be able to pull off.

I will no doubt be pulled into playing some more awesome co-op games with my son, he's recently taken quite a liking to Wizard of Legend which is surprising as it's not exactly an easy game for a younger audience. I think the fact that he can run around with me, as a Wizard and customise what spells he has (as well as using all my damn diamonds buying more) is a big selling point.

I was seriously hoping to finally be able to play the backer beta of Crazy Justice, but sadly Black Riddles Studio's communication has been repeatedly quite poor. The Linux version was supposed to be patched over a week ago which didn't happen, then again it was going to be patched "in the next two days" which also came and went without a word. Sadly, Crazy Justice so far has been a major disappointment.

I will also be testing more of censored which is coming to Linux. Jokes aside, there are a number of games I'm testing that I can't talk about right now, but we're in for a fun year.

So what are you playing this weekend and what do you think about it? Grab a chair, get comfy and let us know.

I will also no doubt be chasing my Rabbit around, telling him off for chewing everything possible.

HmeGrabbed a copy of DOOM (2016) for 7€, thinking I would test this whole proton thing not expecting much...
IT RUNS SO SMOOTH!
Where did you find it at that price?

Sorry for the late response...
It was on sale at GamersGate. Never used that site before, but worked nicely.
Got the game product-key which i then typed into Steam
I'm not entirely sure but wasn't GamersGate one of those places we're supposed to avoid due to the selling of stolen keys? Apologies to GamersGate if they're not one of them.

Gamersgate is owned by gamefly the old video game renting company and are apparently a key resller of legit games so the devs get the majority of the cut.
Thanks for correcting me on that, I don't want to tar legit companies with the theft brush.

g000hHaving considered getting it for a while, I finally decided to pick up NEO Scavenger which is currently at 75% discount on Humble and includes the Steam key and DRM-Free Download.

I'm quite used to playing games with a survival-based theme. This one is tough, but also rewarding. You really have to consider your actions carefully. Also, every play-through you're able to learn from your mistakes in your previous game, and try to not make them again. There's a lot of common-sense and realism built in.

In my last game, I'd managed to find a sleeping bag, through scavenging. Crafted a sharpened spear to fight off opponents. Built a small campfire, and upgraded it to a bigger one. Made myself a sack for carrying more items during foraging missions. Killed animals, and roasted the meat. Poisoned myself by eating the wrong plants. Tried to recover with a lot of rest and warmth. The campfire attracted feral dogs, and after fighting for a while, my increasing wounds and illness brought me down. I feel I did pretty well, considering how unforgiving the game is, and the fact that I had found very few genuinely useful items during my foraging - RNG rogue-like play.

Three more Windows games I played - or rather tried - with Steam/Proton/WINE:

Fallout 3 GOTY - I tried this, but it failed for me - I'm aware that there are tweaking steps involving xlive.dll and using "/tmp/proton_run msiexec /i /path/to/xliveredist.msi" but I don't have and couldn't find "proton_run" (The command "find / -name proton_run" does not find it on my PC. Could not find it to download.) Running Debian Buster and trying latest Proton beta (after the more stable one didn't fix the problem.)

SCUM - Just a little bit more testing. Yes, it works. Mostly not bothering too much with it, because preferring better performance and game improvements before I get stuck in.

Skyrim Special Edition - A little more testing. It works, but not the NPC audio (which is quite important to enjoy the game).

Anyone know if I should delete the Proton directory if I upgrade from 3.7-3 to 3.7-6 ? (Obviously, I've restarted Steam.)

Congratulations! you make me install Neo Scavenger xD
