Rise of the Tomb Raider announced for Linux, port from Feral Interactive

Mountain ManGlad for people who enjoy this franchise, but I found the first game to be such an on-the-rails slog that I won't be buying this.

You could go to any unlocked area at any time, there were optional tombs and challenges all over the place, what did you find "on-the-rails" about it?

I've played Rise on the PS4 and it's more of the same but bigger and better, can't wait to buy this for Linux.

Wolcen: Lords of Mayhem (previously Umbra) will not have a Linux version during alpha or beta

madpingerI hope they at least are making internal builds to test as they go.

I don't think so, the way they talk in the updates implies they actually have no clue what it takes to write cross platform code. I fully expect to discover they've used some middleware that doesn't work on Linux.

cRaZy-bisCuiTDid they ever say there'll be an alpha or beta? I'm pretty sure they mentioned in the past already that there'll only be a Linux version AFTER release

It was sort of implied by the title of the Kickstarter project, two platforms on an equal footing. It was only long after they'd taken the money they announced there would be no Linux alpha or beta.

The “Fall 2017” update for Civilization VI has finally made it to Linux

I think it's important to remember that Aspyr initially weren't going to release Civ VI for Linux, perhaps because they knew the updates would be a low priority for them. Next time time a publisher tells us they don't want to release a Linux version because they won't be able to give it full support we can use this example to help decide what it is we really want.

It's also likely that most of their resources in recent months have gone towards the mobile port of Civ VI. Could be a big money maker for them.

Also worth noting I have played three times as much Civ V over the last month as Civ VI because I can play that one together with my friends.

wintermuteDoesn't seem to work, download is missing executable (and all other data).

They fixed it last night, game now downloads and runs fine.

Colony building sim 'RimWorld' is now in Beta, with lots more content on offer

stretch611(ok, *maybe* 16-bit graphics... very similar to Prison Architect.)

Definitely 16-bit, most 8-bit machines had a resolution of less than 200x200 in 'colour' mode.

F1 2017 released for Linux as Feral Interactive’s first Vulkan-only title, here’s a port report

From the requirements:

QuoteThe Nvidia 387 driver series has known issues. We advise that you avoid using this driver for a better user experience.

Is this a factor in the performance Liam is getting?

What have you been playing and what do you think?

I have been playing:
  • Shroud of the Avatar - getting close to 3000 hours on that now, still has many issues but I enjoy the people I play with
  • Borderlands 2 - doing a co-op play through with a friend, we are up to Tiny Tina's DLC
  • Saints Row the Third - been playing co-op with a (different) friend, he's got all the achievements now, I still have three to get
  • Divinity: Original Sin - yet another game I'm playing co-op, though we're only about seven hours in

Also spent some time on Silence, Pale Spectrum - Part Two of the Book of Gray Magic and Figment in the last few weeks but only around an hour in each. Got my Kickstarter reward for Thaumistry: In Charm's Way yesterday so hopefully be playing some of that this week, but I have a backlog a mile long.

OrkultusBeen playing tons of Shroud of the Avatar. I love all the new content.

The Highvale Outskirts are a good addition. I also quite like The Crags, though most of my guild are spending a lot of time in the Kobold Expeditionary Camp these days.

iiariGridiron Football (Amiga)
I may be the only person on Earth who adored this (Bethesda!) sports game from the 80's, but a completely top down, X's and O's (literally) perspective is actually the most fun and strategic way to play American Football. Damn Madden for convincing everyone to go 3D isometric! It's ruined the genre for 30 years!

You are not the only person, me and my brother used to plug two mice into one Amiga to play head to head, I often think it would be perfect as a mobile game. Though I also enjoyed Madden My recollection is that the physics engine from Gridiron was licensed for use in the original Madden, though I don't have any sources to hand.
