The RPG 'Pathfinder: Kingmaker' is out with critical bugs in the Linux version

Runs a lot better with the new patches. I will test it in Linux at some point as well.

According to Kotaku, Microsoft is close to buying Obsidian

I think this can be a good thing. Many Obsidian games suffer from strange bugs long after release due to funding problems. I'm not that worried that Microsoft will mess things up, as they have shown the desire to change recently.

A bit late to the article, but I just wanted to say that this game runs rather poorly on Windows as well. Save corruption, crashes, freezes.

I generally don't care for the battle royale craze, but this might be interesting.

Serious Sam 4: Planet Badass has new screenshots and a much bigger world

Yeah, and camera work in the Devolver conference was super wierd. It almost looked like the audience wasn't there. Super freaky.

Total War Saga: Thrones of Britannia is now officially available for Linux

I like those benchmarks.

What about the quality of the game? I've seen a lot of mixed reviews, so I'm not sure if I will get it or not.

Linux game porter Ryan 'Icculus' Gordon is looking for new games to bring to Linux

EhvisSince nobody asked for wishes, it's not relevant at all. Relevant would be to discuss how to get porters like Ryan Gordon in contact with developers that might show interest in having their game porter. Wishing for skyrim has been done a thousand times and adds nothing to the subject of this article.

People sharing their wishes is relevant, it shows what Linux gamers want. It may not be as relevant, but it is a bit relevant.

GOG are giving away Ziggurat in the second week of their Summer Sale

Mountain ManThese random giveaways are why I look through my Steam library every now and then and say, "When the hell did I get this?"

Yeah, I have no idea what 50% of my steam library even is.

Geppeto35I would move on step beyond: It's important as a community to discuss within GOL our wishes and aggregate a clear message for the developers, one or two games that would make the consensus (vote in Liam award session? something like "Best desired port") to be argued in lobbying sessions. A sort of kickstarter backward: people would like to see this and that, and deposit a promise to purchase if this is done.

Sure, but seeing the amount of ports people want it would be a ton of options in a ton of rounds to get down to a few popular winners.

Speaking of The Witcher 3. I was quite surprised to see how much WINE has progressed sine I last ran pure Linux, and I didn't know there was a library to translate dx11 to vulkan. Getting TW3 to start was a simple to install the gog version (wine64 bottle), patch the wine bottle with dxvk, csmt and windows 10.

I haven't tested running the game beyond the menu, but other people using the same method have reported little fps drops from Windows, although some options should be toned down or turned off, like hairworks and no ultra settings.

I have to see if I can install at least one mod, one that removes lvl restrictions, or I won't have some equipment equipped.

rea987Well, there needs to be some sort realism and rationalism in terms of Linux port expectations. First of all, there are certain companies that reject to support Linux at all due to financial or contractual reasons. Because of that, forget about ZeniMax, Bethesda and id Software related titles like Skyrim, Doom

Doom runs great in WINE. You just gotta enable vulkan in the launch options.

musojon74I know someone who could make that happen. Had a nice drink with him in the pub a while back. You know who you are. Most of us Linux peeps are very cool and love your ports

I have no idea who it is. I've been out of the Linux gaming loop for a while.

EhvisHow expected and completely useless all these responses with games people wish for are. That doesn't help him at all. He needs devs or at least people with connections to devs. Unfortunately, I can't help him in that regard.

I thought the point of the comment section for the articles was for people to discuss things related to the article. It's not off topic for people to talk about what games they wish had a good port.
