A reminder about Steam's platform-specific wishlist feature you should be using
22 February 2019 at 11:08 am UTC Likes: 5

I generally only wishlist games that have a Linux version. I don't want to explain to everyone who may buy me games not to buy any games off my wishlist that don't have a Linux version yet. They'll just forget or get confused.

That's awesome news!

I look forward to the day I can play all these games without wine/proton, and without all the bugs of the original engines. \o/

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

I'm continuing on with my Proton-enabled play through of Fallout: New Vegas, that's going well, not so many crashes these days. \o/ (water still acts weird though)

I grabbed Civ VI in the sale, but I've only played an hour or so in the Alexander the Great campaign, haven't played a traditional game of Civ in it yet.

I also grabbed Rise of the Tomb Raider, which is looking pretty good (only played about an hour again); War for the Overworld which is a great "sequel" to the Dungeon Keeper series, very fun; Door Kickers, which isn't as good as I thought it'd be; and Melody's Escape, I am really not very good at, but it'd be pretty fun if I had hand-eye co-ordination.

The developer of 'Rise to Ruins' is doing so well, they're paying back supporters

14I have Rise to Ruins on itch. I've only been able to get it to start up by installing it in a VM. The developer says the game can't run in jre versions shipped with Arch. I'm hoping that will change sometime. Since I have a pile of other games, I don't want to change my system jre to make just one work. Here's to hope.

Forgot to respond to this back when you made the comment, but it seems to run fine for me with jre8-openjdk. There is also jre8 in the AUR, which is what the devs ship with the Steam version (although they ship 1.8.0_202, and the AUR package currently packages 1.8.0_201).

The hilarious West of Loathing now has a Gun Manor DLC out

Samsai did a playthrough on his Friday livestream and I had to stop watching because it was so good and I didn't want to spoil it for myself. Still need to pick it up, but I keep forgetting to add it to my wishlist.

EDIT: remedied.

The open source Morrowind game engine 'OpenMW' is going to officially bring in multiplayer

I'm sure some people will enjoy this, but I can't see the point of shoehorning MP functionality into a classic SP game. Then again, I don't see the point of TES Online/Fallout 76 either.

Salvatos
liamdaweThis is a very one-sided argument right now and we really have no idea what is actually going on, we have the words of one person.
Frankly, I have to question why you published this article given those very same arguments.

Did you try reaching out to Philip for comment?

What makes you think he'd respond even if Liam had? He clearly doesn't check his email.

This has me Blinded by Fear. :o

EDIT: I've actually read the article and watched the video now. Looks good! Love the art style, very reminiscent of the original Colonisation for me (rather than Civ, which was tile based)

If you enjoy our content, we would appreciate your support!

Currently $7 is about £5.40.

The pound isn't worth as much as it used to be.
