1001st Hyper Tower, a cyberpunk FPS will have you climb a tower and destroy everything
6 February 2019 at 1:59 pm UTC

TcheyThe visuals and sounds are not attractive at all, for me.

I don't mind the graphics, but I'm in agreement with Tchey about the sounds. They sound like something I would've heard 35 years ago in a C64 game, which is a pity. It detracts from what looks like an otherwise novel take on the FPS genre.

I've wishlisted it and will watch it. Maybe I can convince the devs to change out their sounds for something from this century.

Another scoop from Liam!

The RPG 'Tower of Time' had a massive update adding in entirely new ways to play

I wonder: Will these tweaks be what's needed to draw me back into the game and keep me coming back to play some more? I hope so. I enjoyed it each ToT game session I played, but I would leave each session with my enthusiasm a little more diminished than I started with.

Although the story was mostly interesting enough to pay attention to when it came up, it was also immediately forgettable, and only occasionally---mercifully--- interminable.

Combat was the game's raison d'être, and it too was anemic and immediately forgettable. Fighting against the same handful of enemy types per level, and always fighting in the same 5 or 6 rooms, ultimately drained my enthusiasm for ToT, until one day I simply couldn't bring myself fire it up again.

Almost all the pieces were there for ToT to be a really good game. Here's hoping that from somewhere amongst all these new tweaks the devs find a way to add just a bit more fun to ToT.

Some information on why Wine is not going to be using DXVK
26 January 2019 at 2:33 pm UTC

I'm left wondering what led up to this because the Verbeet announcement quoted in the article feels weirdly defensive---or even preemptive---in its tone. Were the Codeweaver cats catching heat for not implementing DXVK or for creating their own solution or something? Has there been hubbub about bad blood between these two camps for awhile, such that Verbeet saw a need to air their dirty laundry?

Philip Rebohle was communicative enough to respond to Liam's enquiry, and sounds like he knew about the issues ... so its not like he couldn't have cleared this up had he wanted to.

Verbeet's version of this story---that Rebohle was being "rude"---just rings hollow. What's going on here, really?

Regarding the beta update (and disregarding the usual "thing(x)-hurts-Linux-gaming mewling)---"Yay!"

kokoko3kWith beta client, i can't download anything, it throws the error "Content servers unreachable".
I'm on archlinux...

same error here, any way to solve this?

I had this problem after the last update, it turned out to have something to do with my VPN blocking IPv6 to protect against leaks. Once I disabled that feature in my VPN, things worked again.

I'm not saying this is exactly your problem, just that it might have something to do with IPv6 for you as well, somehow.

NanobangAddendum: It's looking to me like the IPv6 "support" means one must now use IPv6 to download from Steam. My VPN normally blocks IPv6 traffic to protect from IPv6 leaks, and unless I disable that function, Steam downloads nothing.

I would assume that this happens because your system has an IPv6 address. Forcing IPv6 would be seriously problematic since half the world is still without it.

I'll have to look into this ... I mean, I have both, with and without my VPN ... but I don't really understand how that's gonna figure into anything. Thanks for the sharing your thoughts. It gives me a starting point.

Being able to scroll with some finesse is a welcome fix.

Now if the drop downs would appear for STORE, LIBRARY, etc. when I place my cursor over them instead of when I'm only just right below them, I could die happy.

Well, that and being able to leave my wishlist to look at something and return to where I was in the list when I hit the back button.

And broadcasting.

lol XD

Ooooooo! Look at those terms: Open World, Action, RPG. Each a gem, but together they glitter like the Indra's Net of Linux Gaming! Wishlisted, wishlisted, and wishlisted!

Linux hardware vendor Entroware has unleashed Hades, their first AMD CPU desktop

Looks like a solid rig at a reasonable price, given they've got to pay overhead and make a profit. And although I like to build my own boxes, I know a few people with more money than confidence who buy their (very nice) rigs pre-built. Anyway, I wish them only the very best. I'm always heartened when I hear about new Linux-centric hardware.
