Easy Anti-Cheat is actually still supported for Linux, a statement from Epic Games
7 May 2019 at 1:16 pm UTC Likes: 2

The mistake here (and hopefully lesson learned) was believing Garry in the first place... Epic Games are not saints, of course not (their scummy practices are hurting Linux gaming already), but Garry... this guy behaves like Linux is a nightmare, haunting his dreams, while he maybe didn't realize Linux is powering all his smart devices and the whole god damn internet. What an interesting and sad person.

Valve's card game Artifact seems to be dying off and fairly quickly too

If it becomes F2P I'll definitely try. Valve is very wealthy, they can make all their games F2P with cosmetics and they will still make a lot of money.

I’m in shock at just how well Overwatch runs with the latest DXVK and Lutris

QuoteOh my, what have I done *grabs popcorn*

It's because you compared a game from 2007 and a game from 2016. Of course old fans will complain

Different eras of gaming, but one is the father of the other.

TF2 was freaking awesome back in the day, and still is for many people. Very far from being "bland".

Just to compare, TFC was released in 1999 and I couldn't even find the release date of the original TF, but let's say it was a few years after Quake 1 (1996). Old games that are still available to play, and they all run on Linux pretty great!

QuoteTF2 feels like it has no identity, it feels…bland.

Come on man, Team Fortress is the one that started it all, maybe it doesn't feel "modern" for today's standards, but it's still a great game, without it Overwatch probably wouldn't exist

Used to play TF (Quake 1 mod) a lot when I was a teenager, then played some TFC (HL1 mod) and have a few hundred hours in TF2

Overwatch is cool, but all TF versions have native Linux support, so let's give them some praise shall we

Canonical have released some statistics from the Ubuntu installer survey

But... how MANY machines participated in the survey?

Valve's Steam Play should work better today, as DXVK was left in debug mode causing a performance drop

When I try playing Doom multiplayer my game crashes as soon as it finds a match... is this happening to anyone else?

Also, I'm in a pinch to make a PS3 or X360 controller work on Monster Hunter World, if anyone has a clue on how to configure that (using SteamPlay), please let me know

Facepunch are no longer selling the Linux version of the survival game Rust (updated)

I have more than 100 hours on Rust, but the last time I played was a long time ago. Even so, if they totally remove Linux support, I'll contact Valve to issue a refund, because I don't think they can sell a product with one feature (Linux support) and them remove it just because of their random reasons. I don't want to keep this game on my library if it doesn't have Linux support anymore.

Maybe it's similar to the PS3 Linux case, where Sony had to give cash back to all PS3 owners that had Linux support (pre-Slim).

winepak, a project to get Windows games packaged with Wine & Flatpak for an easy Linux installation

TheSHEEEPThat's a good idea, but my hope is that such functionality should be made official and implemented within Wine itself.
After all, Wine's biggest problem is that is simply doesn't "just work". There's always some fiddling around required.
