The Humble Classics Return Bundle is a really good deal for Linux gamers
21 February 2018 at 11:08 pm UTC

I have everything except Age of Wonders 3 - and with Triumph's refusal to bring the Linux port of AoW 3 to GOG, I'm not too keen to give them a sale of any kind.

Dungeons 2 is currently free on GOG and their sale is still going on

hummer010On top of that, buying the System Shock games supports Nightdive, who are bringing the new System Shock game to Linux.

Speaking of which... https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1598858095/system-shock/posts/2115044 :/

Wow. I did not see that coming.

adamhm"Tyrant developers"? I hope you don't tolerate the use of DRM either, as that's *way* more "tyrannical" behavior...

Anyway there are tons of great games that will never see a native Linux release & would be a shame to miss out on. My approach is to only buy Windows games that are old & deeply discounted/cheap enough that a Linux port is likely to never happen and only if they're DRM-free. Full/high price purchase = must support Linux + DRM-free

Once Upon A Coma, a story driven adventure game from the creator of Pinstripe

I backed it. Anyone who backed Sundered (which I did) had the opportunity to get Pinstripe for free by backing Once Upon a Coma in the first 24 hours. Pinstripe's been on my wishlist since release, so the opportunity to get both games for $10 couldn't be missed!

Spoiler, click me
Reposting here as it's still relevant (and I updated all of my wrappers recently):

Older/classic games currently on sale on GOG that I've made Wine wrappers for:

Crysis
Crysis Warhead
Deadly Premonition
Deus Ex GOTY Edition (flash deal)
Dragon Age: Origins - Ultimate Edition
Freedom Force
Freedom Force vs the Third Reich
Hitman: Codename 47
Hitman 2: Silent Assassin
Hitman 3: Contracts
Jade Empire: Special Edition
Jazz Jackrabbit 2 Collection
Mafia
Mirror's Edge
The Saboteur
Sid Meier's Civilization IV: The Complete Edition
STALKER: Shadow of Chernobyl (flash deal)
STALKER: Clear Sky
STALKER: Call of Pripyat
System Shock: Enhanced Edition
System Shock 2
Total Overdose: A Gunslinger's Tale in Mexico
The Witcher: Enhanced Edition

The flash deals seem to be repeating fairly regularly so if you want Deus Ex or STALKER: Shadow of Chernobyl you probably won't have to wait too long before they show up again

Do your scripts remain entirely contained? i.e. WINE does not take a giant shit on the filesystem/DE settings/libraries?

Even still, the only way I would try a community WINE wrap is if said game is absolutely gratis. I don't want any money going to tyrant developers.

Entirely contained. Adam's scripts are as close to playing a native game as you can get using WINE. I highly recommend checking them out.

The Humble Paradox Bundle 2018 is a rather enticing deal

KelsSo are the base games for PoE

Absolutely!!

I've never played any of the PoE DLC, and I really, really enjoyed PoE.

KuromiShame they didnt put Pillars of Eternity as DRM-free even with Obsidian selling it DRM-free on GOG

If it's DRM-free it's DRM-free on steam as well. You just have to (or not) download it using their client.
Btw, for Stellaris, is it only the base game?

Not necessarily. There are plenty of games that are available DRM free on GOG or Humble that are DRM'ed on Steam.

I'm not sure about PoE though.

I'm going to pass on this one - the only thing I'm missing is Magicka 2, and I'm not much of a co-op player.

The big Wine 3.0 release is now officially available

lunixKDE devs don't care about nvidia and nvidia doesn't care about xwayland

Another reason to ditch Nvidia. In a few years, Nvidia will be barely used on Linux. See the trend on the same page you linked to.

As long as AMD can get their shit together in the laptop market, I'll agree with you. Up to now, laptop users who wanted gaming performance had to go with nVidia.

The GOG winter sale is on, you can grab Grim Fandango Remastered for free

14I'm most tempted by Icewind Dale, which has nothing to do with the fact that I'm reading the fourth Legend of Drizzt book right now.

haha I bought it on mobile recently because it was on sale... lemme tell you I'm afraid of buying Planescape, I might never put down my phone...
These infinity engine games were written for mobile they just didn't know it back then.

Truth!

I've been playing through Baldur's Gate on my tablet right now, and it's exactly like you say - designed for mobile. I bought all four when they were on sale....
