slaapliedjeI have considered getting this for the Switch, just because it is portable. Really wish something like the SMACH-Z would come out so I could play Steam games on a portable.
The Switch version is awesome. It's not a stripped down port but the full game, feature-for-feature identical to the PC version, and it runs great. I highly recommend it.
The main concern I have for it is the expansions. It hasn't been announced that they will get Rise and Fall, or the new one with Canada coming out.

If they also added DRM-free to it...

I think one of the biggest reason Steam is so successful though is their sales are insane.

Dragonlance! Check it out if you enjoy fantasy.
The book where he gets pulled into Ravenloft was amazing.

Dragons of a Vanished Moon is a great closure, imo, to this character.
I should read the newer Dragonlance books, I mostly stopped after the short stories about the Companions kids.

hardpenguinHow very un-Debian-like

... not to mention that it's not open source.
Debian's non-free repository section exists since forever, get over it ;)
It also isn't in the main Debian repositories. Raspbian is still its own thing.

I had bought the original Savage, but since I don't generally frame with random strangers, I only once played it at a LAN party and it was pretty fun.

stretch611Now that the 2nd expansion is on its way, will Civ VI start being good?

I remember playing the early DOS game... World Generation took so long that you had to listen to Leonard Nimoy recite the intro(iirc) until your computer finally completed map generation. (ok, I did a little research and the original was not voiced by Nimoy... Nimoy voiced Civ IV)

Civilization II was a great upgrade.

I was less than impressed with Civilization III, but I still played it to no end.

Civ IV was great... and it only got better with its expansions.

When Civ V came out, I didn't buy it because I was linux only at the time. I did not get it until after it was eventually ported and on Steam (for linux ofc.) I noticed it and the expansions during the my first winter sale on Steam and bought it immediately, only to play it for over 750 hours (according to steam.)

As for Civ VI... I wanted it for a while... I was not willing to buy it for windows and Aspyr took its time to port it. By the time it was out for linux, the reviews were lackluster at best. I was on the fence for a long time actually, having it in my cart during sales and removing it the last minute. I ended up getting it through the humble monthly (which I had a subscription, not just a one-off pickup.)

When I finally played it... I never got bored of a Civ title so quickly before... even now, it sits in my library with only 39 hours of playing time... less time than any other Civ; and to be honest less time than I put into the others in the first week (and most likely the first weekend for all 5 priors) even though I have had Civ VI for 11 months now.

It has been mentioned to me that Civilization is best after all the major DLC is released. While I liked Civ IV, I agreed that the DLC made great improvements to the game. As for Civ V, some people said it wasn't that great until the DLC either, but I didn't know as I waited until it was all out and I got it in one package for linux.

So, does anyone know, if the new DLC makes the game more enjoyable?

Didn't seem to take forever on the Atari ST version that I used to play it on. Civ II is still my favorite, I waited forever for Civ 3 to be released, then played it like once and kept looking for my Civ II disk... which I'm fairly certain a 'friend' of mine had stolen.

This looks like what Godus should have been.

FaalagornAfter I did some testing, guess I'll repost what I originally posted on ProtonDB, for posterity:

Seems 3.16-5 is still not added to ProtonDB - quite a few games got some progress, including Elite: Dangerous (some, but not all fixes were merged), Dead Rising 3 and possiblyt others having audio now (but crashes), UE games not needing winetricks for audio to work properly (Red Orchestra 2 for example), 3D Mark starting (but can't get the actual tests to run), Just Survive and Just Survive Test Server launcher starting (but servers are dead) and my wife can play Dysan: The Shapeshifter now

I would LOVE to not have to reboot for Elite: Dangerous (I play it in VR). That is one of the few games I keep my Windows install around for.

Anyone tested to see if Lego Marvel superheroes 2 works correctly yet? It seems the audio is always missing one of it's sound channels or something, like the dialog works and music, but no explosions.
