Can you hear that? It's the Steam sales train and it's arrived, also Steam Wishlist revamp
15 February 2018 at 9:21 pm UTC

Holy crap the new wishlist on steam is hideous.

Kinda makes me not want to buy anything.

And now we know why MS wants to buy Valve.

Microsoft is rumoured to be looking to buy Valve, EA and others

Microsoft have proven themselves to be rather decent towards Linux as of late. They also haven't blocked Minecraft from opposing platforms, so I don't think there's much to worry about no matter who they decide to buy out.

Nvidia "just works" if you use an outdated Xorg, don't care about standard Linux APIs like GBM, and even if they decide to support standard APIs it's years after the Intel and AMD have started supporting those.

Nvidia doesn't "just work", devs keep working around their terrible shoddiness because Nvidia users keep crying foul if stuff doesn't work properly for them.

When something doesn't work properly on AMD it's AMD's fault, when something doesn't work properly on Nvidia it's the project's fault. Nvidia users are like Apple fanboys who keep deluding themselves so as not to have to face the reality that they've got serious Stockholm Syndrome.

Ugh, still so many people using the crappy NVidia garbage. I suppose that'll change as Wayland becomes more prominent.

Wonder how many people are gonna switch from Intel to AMD after the IME stuff...

elmapulnow they need to fix the:
"add the fucking smoth scrooling" bug.

Smooth scrolling? Eww, what is this, 2005?

What have you been playing and what do you think?

Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen. It's Monster Hunter meets Skyrim with a little Shadow of the Colossus mixed in. There's just no other game like it.

The latest Steam Hardware Survey shows Linux market-share has declined again

It'd be nice if games would actually work on Linux. Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition no longer works because of an OpenSSL update which isn't backwards compatible, and Civ V just doesn't start without any helpful error message.

I have a PS3, but rather than getting a PS4 for newer titles I think I'll just set up a decent Win10 gaming rig, at least that'll last me a longer time with better performance.

For the games that no longer work on a decent up-to-date distro I could try a Debian derivative, but I'd rather chew my arm off. The .deb package format is a crime against humanity and should be outlawed under the Geneva Convention.

Setting a primary monitor for launching games in a dual monitor rig

scaineGotcha. Honestly, I'd have given KDE a shot if I'd known that. But I'm glad this fixes it for me, since I do prefer gnome to KDE. Although, my last KDE trip was back in the early KDE4 days so that's probably not a fair comparison.

I haven't used GNOME since like 3.22 or something, but last time I tried, KDE had way~ better multiscreen support.

PhiladelphusSerious question: is right-clicking the game icon in the task bar and selecting "Move to the other monitor" not a feature on most desktops?

Well, you're assuming the application doesn't capture the mouse and doesn't behave weirdly when moved between monitors.

That said, I have "switch between monitors" bound to ctrl-alt-left/right, which also helps me run applications when one of my monitors is showing a different machine.
