Streets of Rage 4 to be playable on Linux at release with Steam Play Proton
1 May 2020 at 1:38 pm UTC

In a weird twist, this game works on Proton but crashes on Xbox Game Pass in Windows 10.

It appears that Valve are preparing Half-Life: Alyx for Linux

I saw a pretty good video demonstrating this game being played on a variety of VR sets for those who can't afford Valve's fancy one. Of course, you'd miss some of the control features, but it's still playable.

GRID (2019) is showing signs of coming to Linux

I tried it on Stadia during this free trial period, and it was a stutter fest. Not good when you're trying to race. I even tried it with a wired connection on my Fiber network. It was better but still not nearly as good as a local copy would be.

NVIDIA have a new Vulkan Beta Driver out for Linux - helping DOOM Eternal on Steam Play

poke86The way I do it (xubuntu):

- Download the driver
- chmod +x on the package
- log into to tty1, run > sudo service lightdm stop
- launch the package, follow the instructions
- sudo service lightdm start

there you go, there's a chance you might have to do it again next time you update you kernel.

I'm getting 120+ FPS @ 1440p Ultra Nightmare settings now (RTX 2080)

And just to clarify, if you update your kernel and forget that you manually installed the Nvidia driver, you'll get dropped to the command line on your next boot to remind you.

Serious Sam Collection & Panzer Dragoon announced for Stadia plus some timed exclusives

I hope Google learns from Nvidia and starts offering a away to play games you already have in your Steam/GOG libraries rather than having to buy online-only versions of those games.

Google plan over 120 Stadia games this year, 10 coming to Stadia before other platforms

Valve got developers interested in SteamOS by showing them the value of Linux as a gaming platform. Google has failed to do that with Stadia. They want developers to port to their platform exclusively. Why not port to Stadia and also release a Linux version? That gives developers more incentive since Linux already as a community, albeit a small one.

I'd love to try it. I'm in the U.S., have a fiber connection, and I was a beta tester.

DXVK 1.5 released with D9VK merged in for D3D9 support, plus a statement on DXVK's future

So, is it safe to say then that the games that still won't run in Proton are due to wacky code the developers have insisted upon in their games, such as Red Dead Redemption 2's Rockstar launcher?

On the one hand, it's good that DXVK has reached that level of maturity, but on the other hand, it's sad that certain games may never work on Linux.

Stadia looks to be very limited at launch and not just the amount of games

I was one of the beta testers for it. I played Assassin's Creed Odyssey in my Chrome browser on Linux. It wasn't without its problems in terms of the connection quality going up and down, but it was playable. The good thing that came out of it at the end was that I got a free copy of the game.

I think that's what Google needs to do to lure people in. If they buy the game for Stadia, they need to also get a key on Steam, GOG or something else as some type of insurance policy.

Google reveal more games with the latest Stadia Connect, including Cyberpunk 2077

This raises more questions for me. Let's say I already own a copy of Elder Scrolls Online. Can I just log into Stadia and start playing, or will it require a separate copy? Also, if I buy Cyberpunk 2077 on Stadia, will that also give me access to a downloadable copy through GOG or some other store?
