Double Fine release the first official Psychonauts 2 trailer

DribbleondoPlay it! (fair warning, the difficulty curve is...annoying)
Did you play the original or the remaster/re-release? They actually made some of the more frustrating parts easier IIRC.

In my opinion Psychonauts' charm and innovative design easily offset its quirks. The new game being a very direct sequel is as good a reason as any to (re)visit the original.

Maybe not for full price if you're not sure, but it regularly goes for 90% off at itch.io, GOG, Steam and Humble.

Took me a while to remember that yes, I am indeed using the open source drivers as of a week ago.

Looks like more of the same.

Good.

It may be old, and it's not Dirt Rally 2, but I don't care. I'll definitely buy it anyway.

SpiderDerpCan i have a steam-key?
Instructions for claiming your key are at the end of the article.
So will the key be automatically sent to me?
What happened when you clicked the blue "click here to claim" text?

Of course, if you signed up just for this less than 24 hours ago, you'll have to wait for a bit. As the article explains.

Egosoft to launch X4: Foundations on November 30th, hopefully with a Linux beta build

ShmerlInterestingly, their system requirements list Vulkan for the Windows version: https://www.gog.com/game/x4_foundations


Minimum: Nvidia GTX 780/970 or AMD equivalent (Vulkan support required) Recommended: Nvidia GTX 1070 or AMD equivalent (Vulkan support required)

Though funny that they didn't bother to specify what the AMD equivalent is. That's not very user friendly.
You're right, this is too common. I'm sure they've tested on AMD, but this kind of makes you think that they haven't. I'd assume an RX 570 should be close to a GTX 780/970?

The Steam Autumn Sale is live, with some epic deals going

FredOThe first 3 are going for just 5€. Hair Works is not working with Nvidia 415 driver in the Witcher 3. I understood that they fixed that, but I lost track in which driver version?
You'll need the Vulkan developer beta driver 396.54.09 for VK_EXT_transform_feedback. On Ubuntu you can get it from this PPA.

adamhmAs usual, older/classic games currently on sale on GOG that I've made Wine/Proton wrappers (wrapper release list/links to release threads in the third post) for:

The Witcher 3 GOTY

Hi adamhm,

Thanks very much for your amazing scripts.

Wondering if your Witcher 3 GOTY script enables playing the game near perfectly on Linux?

I was very impressed by your Shadow Warrior 2 script which worked perfectly for me, despite not having the latest Nvidia graphics drivers on my Debian Linux install. (I'm still on Nvidia 390.87 :/ ).
I'd assume the script works fine, but for Witcher 3 you will need stream output support which is only in 396.54.09 for now. Otherwise you'll get some glitchy and invisible enemies.
