According to Kotaku, Microsoft is close to buying Obsidian

People often try to assign human emotions and intentions to Microsoft, but it's a corporation. It exists to make money for shareholders, and it will buy and sell its CEO's own mother if it means making an extra few dollars. Having said that, if they find Linux versions of games to be profitable, they might release some, but if Linux ever became serious competition, that would stop.

PublicNuisanceAlways good to see a demo version of a game.

My thoughts exactly. I miss the days when pretty much every game had a demo.

TemplarGRSeems to be a great game. I grew up with the original Fallout games. Definitely a purchase from me, when it is fully released of course. I don't do early access, ESPECIALLY for RPGs, since campaigns tend to be huge in terms of playtime and i hate the constant changes and additions of content which make me feel i am constantly missing something and should begin from scratch. So, eagerly waiting for the full release on this one!

Agreed. Any game with a story needs to be played from beginning to end. I wouldn't want to read a book with missing chapters or a serial TV show with missing episodes. I've also read that there are some balance issues with the combat that only time and care can fix. I'd happily wait and pay full price for a good finished product.

jarhead_hJust chiming in, Overload is the true sequel to the Descent series made by people that worked on it. They just can't use the name Descent. If you love 6 degree movement games, and can only afford one, this is the one to get, and not only because it has a native Linux port.

It's nice that they added a singleplayer campaign, but it's hard to imagine they can pull off a Descent rebirth better than Overload.

I had no idea it was releasing so soon. This should be interesting.

TcheyOn my 4-5 years old computer, it runs good enough on "Medium". It's turn based, so it's not a big issue if the frame rate is not over the top.

The framerate is not over the top on Windows either. I think it's just a limitation of the Unity engine or the game developers...or both.

Space sim 'Helium Rain' to leave Early Access next month, along with a major update now available

There was a game-breaking bug in Early Access when using the Vulkan version of this game. I wonder if they fixed it.

Wow, this game costs 99 cents. It's cheaper than water!

I wonder if they've included ultrawide (21:9) support.
