Very nice. Didn't try it for some time now, will have to play a bit again.

The Linux Dev Lead at Feral Interactive is moving onto something new

Will be interesting to see where he ends up working.

Thanks for all the work on bringing high quality AAA ports to us, Marc. Wish you all the best!

Oh cool. Sad thing, until I get to play them it's probably 2025, because I'm way behind the games I want to play :p.

A Linux build of Phoenix Point is due within a day, main release delayed

Hmh, that's certainly an interesting one. Wishlist :-).

[edit] oh, not on steam yet. That's why it wasn't on the list yet.

Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire is now available, a few thoughts

And I still didn't finish the white march 2...

They're really faster developing than I find time to play their games.

A fresh DXVK release is out with fixes for NVIDIA, RADV and multiple game improvements
8 May 2018 at 8:15 am UTC

Really cool part is, WoW works with it already since they implemented ID3D10Device in dxvk, which is cool. Still having graphics glitches on RADV, which seems to be a driver issue, but I'd be interested in actual performance there. On OpenGL on a RX 460 and on my GTX1080 I had real performance issues. Even on the old 1.12.1 client I do max at 30 FPS - that client is almost 12 years old.

I'd like to play on classic servers once released, since that's some way to go there it seems, I probably get lucky and can make use of dxvk by then .. considering the progress made. Will be interesting to see if there is a positive performance impact.

The developer of RPG 'Underworld Ascendant' finally clarifies their plans for the Linux version
4 May 2018 at 6:57 pm UTC

And back to the wishlist with that one. Already looks quite fine enough, the question will be the RPG and story part. There are not many great RPGs out for Linux, and in general there are few who pulled off making really good RPGs, it's hard to have a story fix people into a world leading them on. We'll see.

The Steam Hardware Survey had some flaw causing cyber cafes to be over-counting users

So they do have measures to only survey us once a year?

Interesting. Then soon(tm) I should get another survey (while I got 3 on windows in the past year, so something certainly is not working there...)

Looks like you can now run Linux on the Nintendo Switch

Nice, I wanted a Switch and a small Tablet to surf on the balcony instead of my phone. I guess I will only get a switch only now ;-).

Jupiter Hell, the modern turn-based sci-fi roguelike is going with Vulkan

codythedragondudeBeen watching a few of the dev streams for this game i always pick on him about cleaning up his code it's a good time just look up epyoncf on twitch if you want to watch them make jupiter hell

i'm glad he made this decision since i remember him talking about openGL on mac being basically archaic and bad

looking forward to playing this game for sure

Haha, gotta' check those streams. I like when others show their code, and the way they work. I use to be very concerned about cleaning up my mess (because most starts out with can I do it? and ends up being useful requiering refactoring).
