What have you been playing and what do you think?

Posted by , | Views: 22,566

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.

cthulhusreignAfter Steam switched to 2.12 to be able to run, everything is broken. I have a Steam account that only has games that run in wine but after 2.12 out of 120 only 5 of them work.

This is one of the reasons I'll never buy a DRM'ed game to run in Wine (the other reason being I hate DRM and avoid it in general - DRM'ed games are close to worthless in my view). I also wait for a big discount before I consider buying games for running in Wine, as a way of balancing between supporting & encouraging Linux releases vs playing games that don't have (and are unlikely to ever get) native Linux support.

cthulhusreignThat being said the games i have been playing native are civ 6 and salt & sanctuary and the wine games i have been playing are Dark Souls 2 and Fallout New Vegas (but it is like pulling teeth to get them to work)

In my experience Fallout: New Vegas runs great in Wine, or at least the GOG version does (I even made a wrapper for it).

gojulEven after completely resetting Wine the same happens.

Answered in the dedicated thread.

Heh. I was just about to recommend your wrapper!

I've been playing Deus Ex 1 and Deus Ex Invisible War in wine.
Also a little bit of Fallout 2 in wine.
Bought "Bear with me" after seeing it here so will give it a try.
Did play TF2 and Dota2 with friends while drunk.

I've played recently GRID Autosport on Linux. The Linux port is good, but it has one stupid bug, but it doesn't matter. It's playable. Performance is quite good, but worse than Windows.

Finally getting around to XCom 2 and I am obsessed. I have been naming my characters after Justice Leaguers and using that charcter's comic persona to fuel my Skill decisions. For example, Huntress is a little more offensive than Robin, Dr Midnite is my healer, etc.

Just upgraded to RX 580 so my options have expanded! Dabbled in some Rust on the GOL server as I am finally able to play it now.
