Another week has almost finished, it's now the weekend and it's super hot here which means it's time to hide indoors and play games.

For me, it's been a real mix of things recently. With the announcement that EVERSPACE 2 is coming to Linux, I've decided to brush up on my piloting skills in the original. I'm still amazed at how fun EVERSPACE actually is, especially the Action Freeze feature where you can just entirely stop the game to take a picture. Beautiful too, it can result in some awesome shots like this:

Apart from that, Jupiter Hell is another fantastic Early Access game now out on Linux. Already loving everything about it, from the awesome atmosphere to the incredible turn-based action. Although when I'm not looking for something so intense, diving into Dicey Dungeons is always high up on my list.

Secrets of Rætikon, a Metroidvania-ish game where you play a bird attempting to activate an ancient machine. Good controls, stunning visuals, and satisfying puzzles, even if fighting to get needed puzzle objects away from magpies gets frustrating at times.

It was the first game I ever backed in Early Access, and I figured I'd pick it up again and try to actually finish it.

I haven't had much gaming time recently, but I've been grabbing an hour or so occasionally for a quick blast on Project Cars. Very therapeutic.

Not exactly Linux-related, but I've also been trying to learn the ins and outs of z88dk with the vague intention of developing something on the Sinclair Spectrum. Maybe. Someday. Don't hold your breath. My C skills were never particularly good, and they're now as rusty as a 1970s car, but it's still easier than Z80 assembler.

Elite: dangerous!

So far it's seems to work very well. I discovered last night if it's going to hang it'll be a hard lock on the system, but it only send to happen on start up.

Now my goal is if I can get in some play time before work tomorrow.

Borderlands the pre-sequel for both.
Finished Borderlands 2 two months back figured it was time to finish the next game in the series.

Thus far it feels like a big DLC for the second game, and I'm not really enjoying it nearly as much. Overall it just feels really cheap story world wise like a mid-budget DLC rather then it's own game.

I've been playing Underworld Ascendant quite a lot over the last few days. Very well optimised and it runs well on my system (AMD FX-9370, 16Gb RAM, GTX 970).
Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen runs well through Proton and is another game I've got quite into.

Finally, Knightin'+ 'cos it's good fun with old school pixel action :-)
