Ballistic Overkill set to get an exciting sounding update with a new game mode
10 July 2018 at 1:10 pm UTC

My main issue with this game is the lack of support class. I know that it is intended this way, but I miss a game like Palladins or overwatch on Linux.

Feral Interactive have no plans to put their Linux ports on GOG

I would believe that's because there's no clear way to know if a game bought on GOG is being played on Linux, so it would be hard to make the division of profits. The fact that there's no client can't be helping either.

Good news for Stardew Valley fans, as GOG now have the multiplayer beta for Linux gamers

I wonder if the constant complaining of people on Twitter every time the beta was mentioned has some thing to do with it.

I still can't will myself to play any MOBA. There's simple no easy way to start, it is too complicated for a beginner and almost every tutorial about it makes the game seem a boring mess.

The current Humble Monthly Bundle has Civilization VI and some DLC for Linux gamers

The problem with the humble monthly is always the same. No guarantee I'll always get a Linux game. I'll probably subscribe for this month and cancel before the end of the month.

YEAH! I'm going to buy it!!!

Looks like GOG Galaxy won't come to Linux any time soon, as it's "not a priority"

KayKay91...why is it that everytime i read comments here, feels like you guys are saying that GOG cancelled making a Linux version despite the fact that it is stated that it's "not a priority".

In fact IMO, deciding not to buy any game from em is pretty much the worst idea you can possible make in this current situation.

After some years we will have to stop thinking of this as delayed. How many more years you want us to wait before it is released? 5, 10, 15? On this day and age those who can't make something on a reasonable speed will be left behind. Even more the competition has already stepped up to the task long ago.

As it is right now, GOG has an inferior product and the only advantage they have is the DRM Free approach and that for lots of people is secondary in comparison to the usability of a client.

The HTC Vive just had a price cut, VR just became a little more accessible

M@GOidWhen the Rift project begin, the target price was 300 US dollars. I made plans to buy it as soon as possible. Then it was 350, witch cool me down but still wanted to buy it. And then the thing jumped to 600 and I give it up.

Since I live in Brazil, to import the thing I have to pay 60 % (!!!) in taxes over its price and shipping. Yeah, it is that expensive to import things over 100 US dollars here in Brazil.

So, unless those things start to be priced around 300, I'm not buying anything. I still want it badly, but I cannot justify paying that high just to play my simulators.

More or less the same reason why I haven't bought a Steam Controller yet.

adomasBTW GOG.com is now selling these "Pinata" things, where you get a random game. I bought 4 Pinatas and guess what: all games are Windows-only. Such a fail. Somehow did not expect that.
I wrote a message to their support asking for a platform dependent selection of pinata games. At first they told me to get a refund but after being persistent they promised me to forward my mail to their development team. Lets see...


I also complained about that to them on Twitter. The promotion for me is completely useless.

bgh251f2This and the answer that twitch gave me earlier about their launcher on Linux only makes me sadder.
Which was?

Thanks.

At least it's still planned.

... I guess that sounds rather comical when said in the context of this thread though, doesn't it?


Well this answer was after I asked about the one year of no information about the launcher. I think they are simply lying, because they already lied about the launcher before.
