What have you been playing and what do you think?

Posted by , | Views: 27,285

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.

Playing the Dawn of War 2 campaign through co-op with my brother. It's actually really fun as you only get control of two squads and the other player gets the other two squads so it adds a whole new level of tactics. We can usually clear maps out fairly quickly while zig-zagging across it to help each other out and end up at the boss fight eventually. If your in the same room as your co-op partner it usually ends up with both of you yelling commands at each other... frequently

Playing Octodad with my 10 year old daughter. Pretty funny game and unusual control in a funny way.

I played Doom 2016 via Wine 2.18 with Vulkan , that is such a good game. Shame that there is not a native Linux version out there.

Also played Cs:Go , Dota 2 and Bioshock Infinite.

Hell , Bioshock's performance was so poor.

subCurrently I'm addicted to Cuphead.
And damn is it good!

Honestly, best game I played in a very long time.
Extremely challenging, but so well and lovely executed.
Yet so different. It's basically one boss fight after another.

Unfortunately it's Windows and Xbox-only thus far.
I saw reports running it successfully on Wine.
But I'm pragmatically use Windows in this case (yeah, not a Wine fan).

It's a Unity game and devs said they'll look into bringing it to Mac and Linux.
Their exclusivity contracts only cover consoles.

So watch out should it be released on Linux.

This game catched my eye from the very first moment I saw the trailer. Hopefully it will come to linux soon. Looks great and everybody's speaking wonders of it.

Unfortunately I've been playing battlefield and battlefront lately. One day I'm gonna get on the rust server and try it out.

On Linux I'm playing Jedi Knight Jedi Outcast, but what I'm playing the most is the Metroid Prime series on Wii, what a masterpiece!

RIVE from the Humble Bundle since it was suggested in the GoL post. And it is pure fun.
