It's the end of another busy week for Linux gaming, for many people the weekend is filled full of games.

For me, I shall be likely diving into some more Total War: THREE KINGDOMS. It's not perfect but it's by far the nicest Total War game I've tried in a very long time. Feral Interactive have done some incredible work on the optimisations for the Linux version that I remain very impressed.

I shall also be booting up my old friend Polychromatic, as I desperately try to beat the score of our contributor Samsai. Such a maddeningly streamlined twin-stick shooter, it's frustratingly good at killing me when I feel like I'm finally doing well.

So dear readers, what play button are you clicking on across this weekend and what do you think about it?

Redoing Rise of the Tomb Raider Again.
Just gone through all TR's in order to get here.
All in prep for ferel's Shadow of the Tomb Raider.
Have played SotTR on Proton but was a little stuttery for me.

I started playing Fallout 4, but Dogmeat remembered me too much my beloved dog who passed away that I had to stop: seeing someone harming him makes me mad. It's very strange, never felt this feeling because of a videogame.

As an alternative I want to play Outward, hoping that there aren't pets.

Please Note:
Fallout 4 works well out of the box using Proton only if you use a gamepad, otherwise you'll have problems with mouse spinning or jumping

Rimworld. The most recent update came out Thursday and it decreases load times drastically for games with mods. I went from 800 sec to 180 sec on my old laptop.

I just lost half my colonists in a raid, so it'll be interesting to see if I can rebuild before winter.

I've started playing Fallout: New Vegas using Steam Play. I've had some hangs on loading, which is a drag, but otherwise works well. Looks better than it did on my X360, which is the last time I played it, I think.

I'm also down to play some Borderlands GOTY with my Bro-in-law. I'd like to play some of the Enhanced version, but my B' in law says (get this) it's too unstable for him on Windows 10. XD

Probably going to continue playing Lufia II via Mednafen, as well as finally making some more progress in CrossCode (damn that fire temple anyway).

So, here's what I'm doing this weekend and have been the past week:

* Always and forever - Rocket League
* Insurgency - Absolutely gripping MP, love it, but it's SO hard though and the players online so good, I rage quit every few months
* The Marble Game that recently went native (don't remember the full name now)
* Half Life 2 (believe it or not, never played it. Actually not loving it so far. It feels as old as it is. Maybe we *don't* want a HL3?)
* Interstellar Marines - Great after the updates
* X11 flight sim

* Always and forever 2 - Angels Fall First
* Battlefield Bad Company 2: People told me it has better control balance than any of the recent Battlefields and isn't quite as runny and gunny, and I agree. Someone started a Linux user server too. Great fun.
* Some new user mods for 2005 Star Wars Battlefront II

GuestPlaying the amazing new Amiga shmup "Reshoot R" under FS-UAE under Ubuntu !
(released this week :-)
Whoa, full stop. New Amiga games are a thing? Must try!

For me, it is the opposite. I play mostly during the week and rarely on the weekend.

This week I played a lot of Total War: Three Kingdoms and the new patch for Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne with Vulkan.

I bought Overload and Freedom Planet off GOG as they were on sale. I'll be checking both out soon!
