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

Posted by , | Views: 30,522
Today GOL asks: what have you been playing on Linux, and what do you think about it?

I've personally been playing a lot of OpenRA, which I think I may have an addiction to. Really love the classic Westwood RTS games, I just wish the AI was a little better.

We had some fun playing Left 4 Dead 2 last night as well, such a good solid game. Great fun to play with friends, even if we did utterly fail at putting fuel in the car at the end of a certain level. Stupid Tank.

Now that the XCOM 2 patch and DLC is out I am also very much looking forward to getting back to kicking alien ass.

This coming week I am hoping to polish up our statistics page some more and include a resolution picker too. Along with general bug fixing of the website I am also planning to continue rolling out more features and new sections, but more on that later.

So many games, so little time!

Also, again, thanks for all the support on Patreon! Article taken from

Let's see.

Darkest Dungeon. It's great!

Stellaris. It's great!

Saint's Row: The Third. Fun but some weird performance glitches?

Factorio. It's pretty good!

Waiting on the Rocket League launch. Got it via the latest Humble monthly.

Started Shadow Warrior (2013) today. It's definitely not something that I've played so far.

Two Worlds and Sauerbraten mostly. Two worlds turned out to be a much better game than I was expecting! Pretty fun multiplayer to!
And a little Divinity Original Sin also!

X-Plane 10, found it has it has 2.54% Linux user base, unfortunately currently behind Mac at 35% and Windows 64% or so. It's a sim where I think Linux has the potential to have a bigger impact imho.


Xcom 2

Insurgency (even have my own server running on a tiny linux box I refurbed a few months back, plus all the workshop mods make it sweet to customize)

But mostly Payday2...Think I have a pretty stellar skill build that meshes well with the maxed-out Muscle perk deck.

Well over 800 hours of Borderlands 2 (some of that in Wine due to crashes for the native version on some missions).
Recently put 26hrs into Pharaonic, some of that grinding for fun (the gameplay itself is engaging, so I don't mind just going around easier areas and wrecking house).
Ziggurat, Eldritch, Heavy Bullets, Barony (see a pattern forming there?).
Most of the way through a 4th or 5th run at Victor Vran. I can hardly contain myself waiting for the Motorhead (insert umlauts where they should be, I can't be bothered right now ).

I've tested all the available Saints Row games. They're all playable, and I plan to put time into all 3.

I've been meaning to put more time into 5089.

ALL of this is on hold because I got a PS4 and I've been neck-deep in Bloodborne.

Probably Stellaris and some old stuff like MW2 under wine

I made the mistake to dig up Civ 5.
Apart from that, a lot of dwarf fortress, and of course KSP.

The last weeks I played X Rebirth and Stellaris since the last patch. A little bit of War For The Overworld, Grim Legends 3 and Zenge. And, even if nobody will ever talk to me again, I emit I played some Adventure Capitalist Usually while I'm listen to a pod cast.
Every was working very stable and I don't have any trouble with performance. Only X Rebirth got damaged graphics after a while playing but it does not crash.
