Starship Troopers: Terran Command on Steam Deck and Linux — a quick guide
16 June 2022 at 8:28 pm UTC

It was kind of hard to find the link to the Steam Store in the article as it's above the last video to check it out.

Here it is again for visibility:

Release Date: Jun 16, 2022

The music is such Nacho Cheesey -- it's a good sign that the makers didn't take the convent too seriously -- it has StarCraft 1 and Fallout 1 vibes. The gameplay looks great.

I was not expecting to wake up to a RTS Strategy CityBuilder.

I love how this illustrates that when a product leaves a gap in a market how another competitor can come in and snap up that market.

I just wish Epic would go disconnect from civilization and go up into the mountains or something and spare us of their idiocy & hostile walled garden monopolistic practices.

I'm tempering my excitement because of the development history of this, however I am highly anticipating this. They should take a page from the UNIX philosophy and just release it -- if they want to improve it with 1.1 and 1.2 milestones -- that's definitely the way.

Working copy works? Good -- ship it. Just imagine all the changes since Terraria was released, or Stardew Valley. It's okay to push perfection & details off after release and actually interact with the community to get to that perfection.

The big blocker for me trying their laptops is that I strongly prefer AMD and would really like to have coreboot.

Every time I've ever bought a laptop with Nvidia, it always was a headache. I'd take Intel Graphics over Nvidia any day just because it works. But these days everything I buy is all AMD.

I like their lightup keyboard, but I'm not sure how I feel about the layout as others with locale needs have noted.

Quoting: slaapliedjeThere was some guy on Steam that was running his mouth off about even Valve switching Dota2 over to proton because he didn't understand what Steam Linux Runtime meant.

That 24 key M cluster on the left, I would love to macro Sway/i3 commands to those. Move. Resize. Navigate. Float / Dock.

Steam Deck hits over 3,000 games either Verified or Playable

Quoting: slaapliedjeSerious Sam 4... like the only Croteam game that isn't Linux Native (yet?). Was saddened when they stopped their awesome trend...

It seemed like their development process was shaken up pretty badly when covid 2019 happened and then the next year people had to adapt to remote workflows who weren't calibrated for that.

I still haven't bought SS4, I've bought all their other Linux titles.

It looks like their review score is 83% positive, when they launched it was off to a much shakier start

Maybe I'll buy for the Steam Deck if they target it and work the bugs out, I do expect support in exchange for my money and that products work.
