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

Posted by , | Views: 5,679

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.

SC 2 through wine.

And why should they do that? You seem to be quite content purchasing and playing their Windows™ products. No need to change anything.

To see this from another perspective

What if wine wasn't a thing? He might still buy that Windows™ product and just dual boot to play it.. Where as if these devs/publishers saw people running it in wine, they'd see an interest in the product being on linux

Plus some devs have given us ports that are none 100% native but still work perfectly fine, and I'm glad I can play games like Bioshock Infinite without having to mess with wine

Sure, WINE is a great thing. It helps Linux newbies with smooth transition from Windows. (And to preserve old Windows-only games that do not run on modern Windows, just like DOSBox.) WINE should be used to adapt pre-purchased Windows games to new OS. No one should buy a game because "it works great in WINE" (like some locals here like to say).

I highly doubt publishers are seriously taking into consideration the number of WINE-purchases. For all intents and purposes WINE is just a Windows version to them. And unsupported one to boot, which lifts off responsibilities from them in case something goes wrong.

ragsuCS:GO mostly. Even though it is not that much fun playing alone, but I wanna be the king of the game ofc
I might also torture myself with XCOM:WotC iron man mode until I get mad.
I don't get it. You are playing CS:GO alone? How? Is there a single-player campaign of some sorts or you're playing with bots? BTW, enjoying the Panorama UI so far?

"Alone" as in solo queuing. The Panorama UI did not work with my setup. My normal FPS is around 250-300 and when I tried the panorama the fps dropped by almost 100.
