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

Posted by , | Views: 9,746

It's the weekend and the sun is out, so naturally many of us will be staring at a bright screen playing the latest and greatest Linux games.

I tend to go through phases of being attached to specific games for a few weeks before utterly burning myself out on them, currently Counter-Strike: Global Offensive has managed to hook me back in. It's not exactly the newest game, but it still has such fluid and fun gameplay that there's still really nothing else like it in the shooter scene.

HITMAN is also tempted me back once more, since I've never actually gone through the Patient Zero bonus campaign. With HITMAN 2 being announced, I feel like I need to get my practice down in case Feral Interactive say they're porting it to Linux again (they sadly haven't—yet). It would be odd if they didn't, since HITMAN seemed to be quite a popular game with Linux gamers.

Caves of Qud has also been amusing me lately, such a great story maker. I won't tell you how many times I've died…

So many games, so little time. Choosing what to play does become a real issue, with an insane amount of great quality games on Linux—there's truly never been a better time for us.

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

Playing around with a lawn-mower during that silly heatwave. :/

Here in the southern hemisphere it's relatively cold, ideal for games.

Trying to finish XCOM:WoTC even though I'm feeling a little burnt out on XCOM. Maybe start SteamWorld Dig 2. I looooved SteamWorld Heist.

I plan on playing Dead Cells-now that I have found a workaround for the steam controller and Insurgency.

Gonna finish Serious Sam: The Second Encounter. Already binged The First Encounter, just so happy that I finally figured out how to get the source code for the game to compile.

I'll ask a slightly different question.. Anyone interested in playing some co-op game? I have Divinity OS laying in my GOG library, but to other suggestions as well.

Pulsar: Lost Colony would be also great.

I'll probably be looking at the backlog, sighing a lot, playing a bit of Shadowverse (Oh wine, what would I do without you.), a bit of Rocket League on the side, maybe some Battlerite too.

I'll probably play a lot of Tangledeep. It's strangely addictive, trying again and again to get a bit further up in the dungeon.

Total War: Thrones of Britannia has me hooked at the moment. I'm on my 2nd campaign, as the Vikings this time, and I'm stuck in that One-More-Turn loop
