I am not usually a fan of dating sim games but something about this looks enjoyable.

It is a good game with a good story. Ran great on Solus for me. It is also on for those who prefer DRM free but don't like GOG.

My backlog will get me through a nuclear winter so delays are fine with me. Just want to enjoy the finished product.

Lore Finder, a cosmic horror metroidvania is on Kickstarter and should get Linux support

The demo was fun so I backed the Kickstarter. Hard not to with an early bird available for only $5. Thanks for the heads up !

I enjoyed the demo and backed the Kickstarter so I'm hoping they find success and can finish it with a Linux version.

Obsidian Entertainment and inXile Entertainment have officially joined Microsoft

Worst case this signals the end of native Linux games from both companies and possibly even future games being locked to the Windows store. Anyone who disagrees has a much more rosy view on Microsoft's history than I do. Before you say they have changed answer this: what have they done for Linux that didn't simply benefit the Windows platform ? EEE in full swing here.

Reports: Valve making their own VR HMD and apparently a new VR Half-Life

I worry about whether this will work outside of Steam but any Linux VR progress is better than none.

Feral Interactive have put out the system requirements for Total War: WARHAMMER II, due on Linux this month

mirvAnyway, I don't meet the CPU specs for this game, officially, but I think the high core count might end up carrying me through.

From what I could tell the i3-4130 was about 50-60% faster in single threaded apps but the 1055T was 25% faster in multi threaded apps. If the game uses 4 or more CPU cores you should be ok.

EgonautFeral still only supporting Intel CPUs, guess I can't play the game then ...

Feral, there are more Brands than Intel who build good CPUs!

All these requirements mean is they didn't test on any AMD CPUs. If you truly believe that the game won't work on AMD CPUs then you don't understand PC gaming or PC hardware. I for one can say every Feral port I own has worked on various AMD CPUs.

Project Borealis, the fan-game aiming to make a 3rd Half-Life 2 episode now has a Performance Test for Linux

PublicNuisanceVulkan results (Ultra @ 1920*1080):

Average FPS: 744
Minimum FPS: 6
Maximum FPS: 2000
Frames Below 60: 35 frames

OpenGL Results (High @ 1920*1080)

Average FPS: 140
Minimum FPS: 3
Maximum FPS: 196
Frames Below 60: 24 frames

It says Ultra for Vulkan but pretty sure it was on low. Everything looked worse and it says "lowend" when launching it. Either way it was good performance.

AMD Ryzen 5 2600X | 16GB DDR4-3000 CL15 | MSI RX 580 8GB Gaming X | Mesa 18.2.3 | Samsung 850 Evo 250GB | Solus 3.9999 | Kernel 4.18.16-96.current | AOC G2460P @1920*1080 144hz

What did the score result give you, e.g. the 27906 bit in my result. I guess you ran the other script (My results seemed to stick to 60 fps, and wouldn't go below or higher than that.)

33,333 for Vulkan and 25168 for OpenGL.
