Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun beta patch dramatically improves performance and load times
22 February 2018 at 10:05 am UTC

I really love this game, and some performance dips were really my only concerns about it. I hope they release some expansions. Mod support and level editors would be great too.

Are Itch.io alphas like Steam and GOG Early Access where you pay once and get access to all future builds?

This game is PEGI 3. Does that mean when you fall off your bike, you land safely on a unicorn-shaped pillow?

Windows 10 S might alarm Valve into boosting SteamOS again

This isn't at all surprising. This is the way most commercial operating systems are going. MacOS already has an "S mode" equivalent, and ChromeOS is like this as well (You have to enable developer mode to get more out of it). Having said that, the only place I've seen a Mac locked down that way is at work, and even then, if you're the administrator of your computer, you can still override it by going through a few warning dialogs.

It's certainly not ideal, but Windows was far from ideal anyway. My point is that this is clearly geared toward enterprise and schools (where Microsoft is losing ground to Chromebooks). They can't be stupid enough to alienate their gaming community, especially when gaming is at an all time high. Then again, I've been wrong about them before.

Six-degree-of-freedom shooter 'Overload' will now have multiplayer at release, teaser video revealed
3 February 2018 at 7:26 pm UTC

If they were to release a level editor for this game, it would be unstoppable. I'm already in love with it. It's the first I've played that gave me the same "ship crawling through a dungeon" feeling that Descent always gave me.Having said that, I'm afraid to try multiplayer right now.

Feral Interactive are teasing another Linux port, so that's two titles not yet announced

It's almost certainly Injustice 2. It's so obvious.

The Talos Principle updated with Vulkan improvements, OpenGL fixes and more, plus some benchmarks

pete910Nice improvement! Every little helps.

Really wish Vulkan would be more widely used tbh. More chance of us Linux people getting a port too.

To be fair, there are more games with Vulkan support than DirectX 12 support. I'd say that's progress.

The Linux port of EVERSPACE is still being worked on

PeciskTheir current version for Linux is very playable, I feel even performance have been improved.
Oh then i have to test one more time against my config.
I couldn't play much because of performance on my laptop@ubuntu17.10 (Core i7 4th quad, GT750, 16Go, SSD).

I did not follow the progress on this game but did you see better performance when they upgraded Unreal Engine or did they work on optimizations ?

If you are, in fact, using a GT 750M and not a GTX 750, your video chip is well below the system requirements for the game.

Having said that, I wouldn't say performance is perfect even on my GTX 970. There are places where the framerate drops, but those are rare. Overall, it's been pretty decent for me. I turn some settings down to keep it steady at 60 FPS, which is just my preference.

The beta was fun, and Ajna's really cute. I'd buy it.
