I played and finished The Medium recently. No Ray-Tracing with SteamPlay/Proton (yet) but still enjoyed it a lot.

Started with Cyber Shadow which is awesome!

And ofc some Valheim as everyone else..

I really like the current vertical layout for virtual desktops but so far the GNOME team always delivered. So I'm always looking forward to their changes even if it means adjusting my workflow a little. =)

Great list! So much to look forward to.

Two more games I'm expecting to be released this year and I'm beyond excited are: Port Valley | One Dreamer

Them's Fightin' Herds getting real close to Linux support, with macOS to follow after

Awesome to finally get a native version!

A little sad though that I got in my Steam Library already since a while (IIRC via a Humble Monthly) and DEVs unlikely see much of Linux interest therefore.

What are you playing this weekend? We're Linux distro-hopping

Control - Really enjoy it a lot. Probably near the end of the main story line already with ~11h. I love games with such a length especially when there filled with lots of variation (.e.g. plenty enemy types). And the side missions are great two..

Children of Morta - Didn't play that much but like it so far and friends love it so will certainly continue..

Spiritfarer - Also only a little further from last week but I love it. Will be me once or twice a week relaxation game for the next time.

A weekend round-up: tell us what play button you've been clicking recently

Helltaker - ~1.5h from start to completion. absolutely loved it! (it's free so give it a try)

Artifact Beta 2.0 (beta) - the first 3 campaign matches. I liked it before but I think it's finding the late road to success soon^TM.

Synergia - not that much, just a little further than the demo. great visual novel.

THE IMPOSSIBLE - amazing puzzle game if you're into those. Also, lve the DEV's comment:
QuoteI'm glad everything is alright! Supporting Linux is very important to me. Linux forever :D.

Fall Guys - yes windows only but runs flawless using SteamPlay and is just hilarious esp with friends!

Pixel Cup Soccer 17 - didn't know about this. I think it's abandoned by the DEVs but it runs perfectly and is sooooo much fun!

The Vaporum: Lockdown teaser has me wanting more

VKD3D-Proton is the new official Direct3D 12 to Vulkan layer for Proton

Wondering how long it will take to at a stage in Steam shipped Proton to run `Death Stranding` (which requires DX12)?

(Wen't against all reasoning and pre-ordered it on Steam knowing that I may never by able to play it on PC. Or at least no anytime soon. Loved the PS4 version so much though that I'm fine seeing it as a donation to Kojima Productions worst case...)

Valve adds OpenXR support to SteamVR in 'Developer Preview'
12 June 2020 at 10:37 am UTC

Quoting: Patola
Quoting: michaThat's great news. Sadly, with the new SteamVR beta my Index stopped working. It keeps complaining SteamVR isn't the default OpenXR device and offers to set it but that's not working either. Well, it's the beta branch I guess. :-)
Updated my SteamVR to the beta and it worked correctly oy my Valve Index. I have the same distro as you, apparently, Ubuntu 20.04. Have you tried getting back to the stable version?

Yes, I switched back to stable and everything works again.

I'm not sure what "other" OpenXR device could be set as default (and in which config files). So far, most of the (Steam)VR problems I had were related to running a notebook (intel+nvidia GPU, ..). Maybe that one is too. Just a wild guess though.
