Euro Truck Simulator 2 expands with Iberia DLC out now
10 April 2021 at 3:58 pm UTC

Quoting: AkonadyThis game has so many DLCs, that is just stupid.

Allow me to disagree. The way I see it, they help to keep the game alive. If you compare the graphics and features on the game release and now, the game was dramatically improved. And that cost a lot of money to implement. And even if you didn't bought any of those DLCs, you still got all the improvements for free.

Valheim is just an incredible experience you need to play

Congrats to Valheim devs for the success. Five million sold games in a month and a half is the dream of any indie developer. And to know it was developed by Linux guys, is just a little thing that any Linux enthusiast could be proud off.

I think is time to SCS to start implementing seasons in their games, all 4. It would make worth to visit a country over and over again. Also, no snow in the northern countries of Europe is just wrong.

Too bad my upload speed is only 10% of the download speed (12mbits). The other side gets lots of stuttering.

Quoting: Appelsin
Quoting: sarmadToo bad Steam Controllers are only 2%.

Too bad Valve never really wanted to sell them to anyone. Just like the Steam Link. If they'd actually been easily available for purchase then they would have sold a ton. In Norway, you couldn't really get one outside of Ebay.

I got mine via US Amazon, and the shipping cost almost doubled the price compared to a DS4 in my neck of the woods. I can totally see why a bunch of people wanted one, but didn't get because the cost was too high to justify.

The upcoming modular Framework Laptop sounds super exciting

It was all nice and dandy until they said ultrathin and Intel. Untrathin laptops tend to run hot and underclock to survive. They also tend to be a bitch to do maintenance, lets see if they change that. The choice of a Intel CPU is also unfortunate, since the high core count AMDs are the ones to get nowadays.

I wish them luck, tough. Today's laptop market can use a little innovation and swap-able components are very attractive to any PC enthusiast.

Quoting: slaapliedjeThey adding rumble support to the Steam controller?

I just tested it. Rumble is available as a option, but is not working in the 4 controllers I tested, including the Steam Controller.

What upsets me is that some developers just ignore the gamepad crowd, like, out of spite. Who thinks is a good idea to support a gamepad in the game, but not in the menus? Luckily that is disappearing, but 10 years ago it was not uncommon. To this day you, can still see games being launched with partial support for controllers.

I can see that supporting more than a type of input can be time consuming for a developer, since fine tuning controls is not a easy task, and it can make or break a game. For example, the other day a guy was complaining that the defaults of Cyber Shadow, a hardcore "Ninja Gaiden" lookalike, was annoying in the keyboard. I can totally see why the developer not even bothered too much with it, because he thought nobody is playing it seriously that way, but there are always someone.

In the end, lets not be That Guy® that thinks "if I do (like, want, despise, etc) it, everybody else does". Is not productive, and will leave you with a very narrow view of the world.

Valheim is now one of the most successful survival games on Steam with two million sold

Congrats to the developers for the success. Every indie dreams of hitting big and they did it.

Lets hope the success continue and they make a name for themselves for keeping the game as bug-free and performant as possible.

WW2 Co-op FPS Projekt Z shows off more impressive progress

The developer appears to have received criticism about the game being free-to-play. And I am one that would prefer it to be pay once. Free to play means you have to use their servers, so lag will be a concern to people away from big centers, even countries. Also, you can forget community generated mods, something that was essential to their inspiration, L4D, to be so successful.

Another concern is if the game flops financially, it will be impossible to play again unless the developer make available community servers, a improbable prospect.

Anyway, I wish them good luck. Is a crowded market out there, and succeeding in it is not easy. But if this game gets to be the new Fortnight or PU:BG, certainly will be nice to have it available natively on Linux, although I can also see they adopting a anti-cheat plugin unavailable on Linux, once cheaters arrive in quantity, as they always do.
