While the constant news of releases, announcements, and updates is really cool, I figure it would be nice to see you are currently playing during your precious free time.

So, what are you playing and how to do like it?


I figure I should go first. I've been playing S.T.A.L.K.E.R: Shadow of Chernobyl over the past few weeks. I'm not a FPS person by any stretch, so it's pretty hard for me, but the setting and atmosphere is awesome so far. Runs perfectly via wine setup via Lutris. My only complaint is there is an occasional visual artifact during the rain, but it's rare enough not to be a huge bother.

I just finished the first episode of Scarlet Hollow. It was fantastic and I backed it on Kickstarter right away. I also finished a play through of Max Payne 2. I beat it years ago but wanted to do a fresh run through so I could see how well Proton handles it and write a review on it. I have also finished Vampire The Masquerade - Shadows of New York. It was good but had some weakness in the plot near the end of the story. Before all that I finished Downward. It was annoying by the end. Decent game play but poor level design and a poor final boss fight. I'm going to be starting Dishonored 2 in the next day or two.

Warhammer Online (Return of Reckoning) - Just can't stop playing it. My Goto PvP/RvR MMORPG.

Mafia (Original) - Quite enjoying it. Slapped some Vkabasalt Sharpness, SMAA and FakeHDR onto it as well as community made widescreen fix and removed stupid fps cap. Runs well and looks okay also.

I've actually been blasting through Assassins Creed Odyssey on Stadia. Turned out to be a pretty great game to just chill out with.

Had to install Windows VM for some reason, and decided to use it to play through The Longest Journey (2000) since it doesn't work on Linux.
But it's hard to keep your attention on an old game, even more so when you don't have much time, so this Sunday I blasted through entire LEGO: The Hobbit almost in one sitting. It runs almost flawless via Proton.
Maybe I will hunt for achievements next, or try LEGO: LOTR.

A little Tales of Berseria, maybe the best Tales of since Symphonia. Dark and less dumb anime stereotypes & tropes than usual. Works great with Proton-GE.

Else, my Gibson SG standard.

But it does! It's supported in ResidualVM. There isn't a new stable release, but the game should work fine in snapshot or compiled from git.

I made a full playthrough last year.

And with that merging into ScummVM, the experience will only get better ;)

Wow, thanks a lot! Will definitely try it, the game has an annoying bug on Windows.
