Portal 2 gets more DXVK Vulkan improvements with another update
2 March 2021 at 3:32 pm UTC

Quoting: DuncThe thing is, you can only play it for the first time once.

A fate it shares with Amnesia Rebirth or Life is Strange 2. I think both are better than the respective first parts, but I find it hard to judge as... yeah, it's not the first time again.

I've seen the web comics, but I didn't know the name so I wasn't aware this is connected. Nice!

I accepted a copy for our Steam curator "Hidden Linux Gems". I did play it for some hours, but don't find it "gemmy" enough. Now I think I should at least pay for my copy...

So I'll buy a copy for the first one to answer here (must be registered user for at least one month).

I'm probably not the only one not to know...

How about a checkbox instead of a radio button? Because I'm not buying only in one store, though there might be the most favorite one.

How could you not recognize my ASCII art checkboxes?!? :D

This - obviously! :p - is what a radio button looks like:

Quoting: CorbenBut if the question would be more like: where did you buy games in the last month? And then you select the stores you used to buy something. And with buy I mean actually paying money, not grabbing the free EGS game. This could reflect if a store became suddenly interesting, because of an exclusive has been released (e.g. Stadia).

Yes, but it would have the problem the WINE question had back in the days: It would need frequent updates by the users, which most people probably won't do.

"Favourite" wouldn't be subject to frequent changes.
Maby one should add something like ("it it would be available at all stores") or the like.

There's three Steam bundles with the game, so you'll effectively get it 10% cheaper if you own Luna, Unforeseen Incidents or The Longing. Or you get an other new game, as you should have at least Unforseen Incidents and The Longing!

Steam Game Festival: Summer Edition returns on June 16

While I've got the feeling there's a sale or a festival going on like half of the year, I really appreciate Valve is pushing for demos! Quite a bunch of my wish list entries is coming from Steam festival demos.

Here's a few of the Linux games we're excited to see through 2021

Quoting: GBeeEven the last major porter, Feral seems to be getting out of the Linux ports business, they used to put out a few games a year, but now we're lucky to see one. In fact, are they about to close down? They have literally nothing on their radar.

They're mainly doing mobile ports nowadays.
