What have you been playing and what do you think?

Posted by , | Views: 23,796

Since the weekends are generally our quiet time, as I take them to spend a little time with family I'm asking a question: What have you been playing and what do you think?

I've been spending more time than I was expecting in Rust. It's strange really, as it's a game I previously didn't get along with at all and now I'm quite hooked on it.

Not everyone will agree with me on this, but I actually think Rust is one of the nicest looking games on Linux. Sure, there's a good bunch that are better, but there's been many moments in Rust where I have to completely stop and just take in the view. That's in-between all the moments of absolute panic when someone fires shots at me and I have no idea where they are.

I want to share this image I took recently too, from a little meet up we did on our server:

We ended up having some sort of in-game concert and it was rather amusing. What makes it even more interesting, is that community member woox2k managed to hook up some scripts (available on GitHub) to play custom music files in game with the guitars and it was incredible.

If you want to join us on our Rust server, details of our game servers are here.

Anyway, less of my ramblings, over to you! Tell us what you've been playing in the comments.

lunixI'm playing Dying Light and I think I'm addicted What keeps me constantly going back is the immersive gameplay and the huge world(3 maps!) with the easter eggs. DL is one of the best games on linux and it has linux support from the first day! Its developers will also release 10 free DLCs in the next year so, it seems like they really care about their players.

Would love to try that. Sadly, Valve thinks that this 40 years old German shouldn't be allowed to buy the game or even see it on Steam.

AryvandaarDivinity Original Sin 2 and Guild Wars 2 every now and then. I haven't played that much in Sin 2, prob just an hour or so, so far.

Divinity Original Sin 2?? Are you playing this on Wine?

Now I'm playing Tyranny and quite enjoying it while I wait for Pillars of Eternity 2.

I think it's possible to redeem a key if someone from abroad buys it?
(The someone would not be me, I'm in the same situation...)

STiATMount&Blade Warband, since they fixed some bugs in Mesa/LLVM which kept me from continueing my mission to become queen of the land. The time is ripe.

Did you fix the module issue? I had it working fine once I applied fixes with missing pkgs but that was on 16.04 after that everyone including myself seems to be having problems

soulsourceWould you be so nice as to elaborate? I haven't bought ARK (yet), as the ugly water was kind of a show stopper to me. Is the water fixed by a developer's patch, or does one have to fix stuff manually?
The fix was of a guy that started replacing assets from the center into the island. It fixes all maps that use island assets, like ragnarok.
It really looks good again. And playing with assets might be a way to figure out what's going on.
If you haven't bought ark yet, you might have to hold off a bit longer yet, or only buy it during discount. It still is not $60 worth, although the game itself is great. Otoh: you can buy it, but be prepared that it still is not 100% good. If you do not have nvidia, certainly for now do not buy it.
To be clear: the only thing I want to prevent is you feeling cheated out of your money and become the next salty forum member ;-).
The game to me is great. The opaque water was bad, really bad, but I still continued, since I already loved the game. The water is water again with the for now hand fix, have to check to see if they fixed it upstream, which they promised.

No, in Windows.

Just finished the Dawn of War 2 campaign through coop, such a good game! Now I have started Space Marine on the PS3 and going to go onto the Chaos Rising expansion of DOW2. There might be a slight 40k addiction starting

AresoAge of Empires 2 (Windows)

You can get that to work in Wine too! The original AoE II is easy enough with PlayOnLinux (I'm sure you can do it with vanilla Wine too if you check AppDB). AoE II HD also works though you'll need to rename Launcher.exe to Launcher.exe.bak and AoK.exe to Launcher.exe. After that it works. For multiplayer to work, you'll have to reinstall the game (via the Steam in that Wineprefix) each time it's patched and rename the launcher each time you reinstall. Also I find that I can't Alt+Tab mid-game without the game uncontrollably scrolling.

I don't have much time for games atm but when I do play it's usually
- Pokemon Showdown (Pokemon battle simulator in the web browser) [GitHub]
- Pokemon Silver (3DS Virtual Console)

I could also be playing some AoE II HD (Wine), Pokemon Trading Card Game Online (Wine), and Star Wars Battlefront II (classic; Wine - so glad they brought back the online servers!! Doesn't matter what happens with the new SWBII, this will probably remain the best game of all time) but in trying to apply a Wine patch to get SWBII multiplayer to work on Wine, I had to remove all my other Wine installs and didn't even succeed in building a patched Wine so yeah...and I don't want to waste time on playing those games anyway...

slaapliedjeI may be a fat over 40s guy, but if you can get Elite: Dangerous working flawlessly in Wine and the Vive, you can do whatever you like to my body, as I will no longer need it (harvest organs or whatever.)

I was proud that I made 1.8 million credits today by accepting a mission that was way too far away to complete... ended up scrapping the mission (which was to deliver data and would have given me 680k). Instead I sold Cartography data for about 100 systems for 1.8 million...time to do that a few more times to upgrade my ship!

Well, it needs to run in Wine in desktop mode first, which it currently isn't. As a rule of thumb, I'm focusing on 1) VR-only games and 2) games already known to be fully working on desktop mode. If I get the majority of those working, that should iron out all the VR-specific hitches and getting games working becomes the same as the regular SOP.
