Maybe now they will release the full package with all DLCs so I can get it before they fall into the black hole that is Microsoft.

Steam Link hardware officially walks the plank, there's an app for that

I got one when it was dirt cheap on sale, but I hardly ever use it. My living room is wired by PLC which sometimes gets small disconnections. During normal internet use this is no problem, but using the Steam Link the audio starts to lag behind. It's just not that good of an experience without ethernet.

Valve has expanded the Steam Play whitelist to include DARK SOULS III and plenty more

Seems I have little excuse not to try South Park The Stick of Truth now. I've been wanting to for a long time, but the lack of a Linux port has held me back.
Oh, and Lego - you can never go wrong with Lego!

Obsidian Entertainment and inXile Entertainment have officially joined Microsoft

It seems all my favourite game studios are being bought out: first Triumph (Age of Wonders) and now Obsidian (and to a lesser extend InXile). What a shame. :-(

I bought the Italy DLC for Eurotruck Sim 2 - not sure what's so spooky about it that it's on sale though ;-)

I hardly play anything but the Truck Sims these days, it's just so d*** relaxing!

Stupendous Manthat doesn't sound like a lot though.

True. To learn more about ancient Egypt you need to combine the key words in the game with Wikipedia.
Or just buy a history book ;-)

daishordThe game has a dozen (or so) events with a short explaining paragraph - covering other tribes, religion and technologies. Don't know how accurate the info is, but it sounds plausible.
Ok thanks, that doesn't sound like a lot though.

I've been thinking of picking this game up to learn a bit about ancient Egypt. Does anyone know how historically correct it is?
It's my understanding that the game guides you through early Egypt, telling how it evolved. Or am I mistaken?
I don't care too much about gameplay if I can learn something.

Aspyr Media are getting a little help from Intel for the long-delayed Linux patch to Civilization VI

Civ 5 segfaults at start since I upgraded to a Ryzen 1700. I believe it's a combination of too many(?) cores and too new GCC version.
Because of this I haven't even considered buying Civ 6.

I believe it's a known issue (many people have it on the steam forums), but I haven't seen a patch for it in half a year.

According to Kotaku, Microsoft is close to buying Obsidian

What horrible news! Pillars and Tyranny are some of my favourite games.
