What have you been playing recently and what do you think about it?

By - | Views: 19,346

It's been quite some time since we last had an open discussion about what you've all been playing recently. Let's get things going again.

We've almost finished the second month of 2020, we've had tons of Linux games that have released this year already and a huge amount more on the way. Now with the rise of game streaming, Steam Play Proton and more options appearing constantly there's never a shortage of gaming to be had.

Personally, I've been getting back into the deck-builder Faeria (Humble/Steam).

With the big recent patch, it gave me a new reason to pick it up and I had honestly forgotten just how good the gameplay is. Building the board as you go really does spice up the usual turn-based tactics, as does the single-player content that's quite plentiful. Gamepad support that was recently added has also made it more accessible than ever. Crafting a good deck of cards is always the hard part but Faeria is fun to learn.

So, over to you: what have you been playing recently and what do you think about it?

My GPU died recently (poor little R285, only five years old!) so I for the moment I'm limited to less demanding games. Currently playing the single player campaign of Worms Reloaded.

I have been stuck on level 24 for a week, because in 25 years of Worms my skills with the ninja rope have not improved one bit.

I have been palying Kingdoms of Amalur Reckoning with Proton.
Works flawlessly . Only had the graphics bug out once.

The game can be be described as a single player MMO.
Finished one of the DLCs today and that last boss made me swear so loud i think neighbours three floors down heard me.

When time permits, Hitman 2 and Assetto Corsa Competizione, both Steam Play. The later one is such a cool racer. Single player works perfectly after some tinkering for Media Foundation stuff. Online multiplayer works acceptable. The game stutters a bit when people join or leave a session. According to te ACC forum this happens on Windows too, but the effect seems (much) worse on Linux. Fortunately the actual races are mostly free of stuttering since usually nobody joins or leaves.

Next on my list: Life is Strange BTS and 2.

I am currently playing Greedfall, after finishing Blasphemous ("bad" ending, so I will have to try to get the "good" one").

Next in my playlist are either Slay the Spire with the new character, Dead Cells with the Bad Seed DLC, or Wizard of Legend with the new Lightning boss.

And of course, next session with friends will be with Unrailed!

Oh, and I have to do a third run on Elex too, and probably a 2nd run on Greedfall... Decisions, decisions

RaabenPlayed through to the full ending of Later Alligator. The gameplay loop and puzzles weren't much to write home about but the animation and short story were amusing enough for me.

I didn't know it has a "full" ending. Wonder of that motivates me to play the rest of the stuff...

Stalker: Shadow of Chernobyl with Долг: Философия войны mod. Good mod.
Also replaying TNT Evilution addon for Doom II on high difficulty with GZDoom. Nostalgia.

All it needs for that is gathering all the family (aka winning all the mini games), no need for collecting all the puzzle pieces. Of course you could always skip another playthrough and watch it up online.

I've been playing Kingdom Come Deliverance through wine + dxvk. It runs fairly well, and I'm enjoying it far more than I expected, I regret not buying it a year earlier as I've been missing out on what's essentially a hardcore elder scrolls experience. Everything is just so fleshed out, I've been spending most of my time making potions and strangling random homeless people until they fall unconscious.

I've just been playing the hell out of Resident Evil 2 Remake in Proton, it runs flawlessly on my build. Trying to find all the Raccoons and all of the other collectibles. Like a lot of AAA games once you take away the cut scenes and just go to the end of the game, it's about an hour of game play. In my view playing this title in Linux is far smoother than on anything else. I just like watching Claire and Ada running around in their tight clothes. If you actually explore everything, you get to find some pretty good stuff, plus the longevity increases. I'm addicted to this game at the moment. Picked up Plague Innocence and it works out of the box, which will be my next game to conquer.
