Red Embrace: Hollywood is a Visual Novel that will take you through life as a Vampire

The protagonist looks like Tommy Wisseau, I'm pretty sure he was hanging out in LA in 1996 too.

Humble are doing a Paradox Interactive weekend sale, some good deals for Linux gamers

I might use this to pick up some discounted DLC and give Stellaris and Cities Skylines another go.

I fell behind on DLC with CK2 and EU4, and after hundreds of hours on each over the years, I think I'm calling it a day there. Haven't really played the more recent ones I bought so just need to be honest with myself and realise I'm throwing money away.

Valve have released some interesting statistics about controller use
26 September 2018 at 9:49 pm UTC Likes: 6

If you're not looking at the percentages, I'd say 1.5 million sales of the Steam Controller makes it quite a bit of a success in terms of raw sales. Judging from the stats, it has more units registered than Logitech and similar ones.

If they release a second iteration with some improvements, they could probably be up there with the PS3 or higher.

They should maybe lower the price too. Controllers are quite pricey and the stats in general seem to show that people are just using their existing controllers from their respective consoles on PC rather than buying something specific. If they could make a cheaper wired option then more people would probably be tempted to buy the Steam Controller specifically for PC gaming.

Mark of the Ninja Remastered from Klei Entertainment due out on October 9th

14$5 upgrade to a remastered edition? That's a good deal I think.

It's not that great when you consider all they did was re-export the existing high-res assets to be at their native resolution. They didn't really "remaster" anything, just took what they already had and rebundled it. It should be a free update really, but if you don't have the DLC, you're getting that I suppose.

Again though, I'm not really complaining since I have both the game and DLC.

It already seems to be in my library since I own the game and DLC. Obviously can't install yet.

Looking forward to this for sure, 720p backgrounds seem dated even for 2012 and this game looks very pretty.

I'm kind of disappointed that while porting to the newer consoles, they didn't take the chance to make a few other changes, but can't complain if it's free. I'll definitely play this one again.

Political strategy game Democracy 4 announced with Linux support

I made a pretty good mod for Demcracy 3 but couldn't upload it. I'll have another go on this one I think.

You're not the only one...

You should have a save file ready, just in case. ;)

LOL

Europa Universalis IV: Dharma is now available, some thoughts
6 September 2018 at 9:27 pm UTC

slaapliedjeI really need to find the time to LEARN how to play one of the Paradox grand strategy games... They look awesome, but when I see 7 1 hour tutorial videos on youtube to learn Crusader Kings II...

I think the best way is through trial and error, these tutorials just fill you with way too much information and it can be completely overwhelming. It's best just to play and enjoy yourself without too much worry for winning and losing. There's a lot of mechanics you can just completely ignore to begin with, and it won't result in a game over for you.

I've been playing Paradox games since around 2004 and EU4 since release day, and sometimes I still have the laptop open to look up country-specific mechanics and events because it's just impossible to learn all of it. When I leave it for 6 months and come back to it, there's usually been a couple of DLC and I have to learn to play certain mechanics all over again.

That said, I can't even imagine how much more complicated it must be to learn to play now from scratch, after adding so many features and mechanics since the base game. Maybe your best bet is to wait until they release the next game in the series (hopefully Victoria III, which is the best of their franchises anyway) and learn to play from scratch with a vanilla game, then slowly master it as the updates are released.

NVIDIA have officially announced the GeForce RTX 2000 series of GPUs, launching September
20 August 2018 at 8:49 pm UTC

I'll probably wait until real-world benchmarks come out to see the actual performance differences, because all these claims about 10x and 8x performance only refer to ray-tracing and not conventional gaming performance. If it turns out the 2080 can finally deliver a satisfactory 4k gaming experience across big titles at over 60fps, then I'll pick one up.

Stardew Valley's Multiplayer Update will be out with full Linux support on August 1st

Don't get the obsession with adding multiplayer to absolutely everything nowadays *grumble grumble* but the new additions should be a good excuse to revisit the game.

Two Point Hospital confirmed to be releasing for Linux next month

I have insanely high hopes for this.

Theme Hospital was one of the greatest games ever. I really hope they manage to capture the same humour and charm of the original.
