Third-person shooter with Battle Royale modes 'Crazy Justice' to launch towards the end of this month
16 July 2018 at 3:40 pm UTC

liamdaweIt's strange how people assume Fortnite was the first to do cartoony graphics, or the first to do Battle Royale...

As Apple has proved time and again, you just need to be the one to popularise it.

liamdaweI don't agree with the lawsuit of PUBG vs Fortnite, but it's very clear Fortnite copied the core gameplay from PUBG.

And PUBG copied the core gameplay from H1Z1

liamdaweAs for Crazy Justice, it still seems quite different and unique. Characters have skills, you can build but not destroy buildings and different game modes - battle royale with skills is supposed to be just one of them.

You can say the same about Fortnite in relation to PUBG and this is also true in relation to Crazy Justice as BR is only one of the game modes.

It's good that it will be available on linux but I'm afraid it's too much like fortnite to attract anyone else.

Harebrained Schemes making 'good progress' on the Linux version of BATTLETECH

mirvI admit that it first read to me like localisation problems with a GNU/Linux build were causing problems. Instead localisation takes higher priority, which means resource allocation delaying.


I still maintain everything I've mentioned before about this though. No need to repeat it again.

Given there's still no firm release date, no specifics on how development is going, I wonder how this will impact sales if the game is ever released for GNU/Linux. Just a shame, that's all.

I'll certainly buy it sooner or later.

Valve are easing up on what content is allowed on Steam

This, however, does nothing to stop the flood of shitty and/or broken asset flips, which are the real problem steam has. And while this affects mostly windows users, it still makes discoverability much harder because everything is buried under a pile of trash.

PatolaSteam just added to the sales a bunch of old-school RPGs like Baldur's Gate, Baldur's Gate Siege of Dragonspear, Icewind Dale and Planescape Torment, along with the RTS Armello. Is this one any good?

Armello is pretty good.

tjwhaynes@gmail.comFinally picked up Dying Light Enhanced Edition in the Chrono.gg daily sale - so far, I'm liking most of what I see, although my parkour skills need a lot of work (took me four tries to set the trap on the signal pole in the rail yard in the prologue - I kept imagining hearing the infected laughing at me...).

The only mail I got from Chrono.gg is about War for the overworld, I've searched around the site and never saw Dying Light mentioned anywhere. Are you sure you got it there?

chrono.gg deals only last for 24 hours, then they are gone and a new deal starts. But.. maybe the Fanatical one I shared suits you.

However it doesn't show dying light as one of the latest past deals: https://chrono.gg/pastdeals - are you sure you bought it from chrono.gg?
Dying Light is on a Fanatical deal right now, 66% off: https://www.fanatical.com/en/game/dying-light pretty good deal that. Will add to the main post now.

However, that's for the standard edition. I've found the enhanced edition for 66% off here https://gemly.com/shop/Dying-Light-290000/29000101

g000hHmmm... Well the Humble Monthly turned up and it does have 1 Linux game: Hearts of Iron IV and 2 non-Linux: Portal Knights and Blackwake (and neither look like they're coming to Linux either).

Disappointing :/

Don't forget the other remaining games though. This month Pillars of the Earth alone made it worthwhile for linux.
