Steam Link hardware officially walks the plank, there's an app for that
20 November 2018 at 9:56 am UTC Likes: 2

For me, the app on my Android TV seems to have more input lag than the Steam Link. I was hoping to bin the Link to get rid of some wires, but have ended up persevering. I hope they continue to support it in some way.

I agree that some of the dlc had become a bit niche. This one sounds much more fun. Thanks for the excellent review.

Well, at least I can put off buying that new graphics card for a little longer...

Being punched in the gut by one of my heroes hurts a little bit more.

The more I see these trailers, the more I realise this game isn't going to run on my potato. It looks lovely, though.

kernelkidThis developer has a sequel that was released about five months ago. It's titled Egypt: Old Kingdom and also has Native Linux support, at least on Steam.

Apparently that one is better and is coming to GOG next week. I don't know if that includes the Linux version.

I bought this in the early access phase to support the developers with their Linux/blender workflow. I'm looking forward to trying the finished product!

LeerdeckI can start Stellaris without Steam and get the start menu, where I can de-/select my already installed mods/dlcs. You cannot install/download the dlc/mods from this menu through.

Thanks. Good to know!

CobhamSteam version is DRM free already.

If I launch the Steam version of CKII without launching Steam, I don't get access to my DLCs. That isn't drm-free by my measure. Is this game different?

(Edit: I suppose I might just be missing a flag or something to point to my dlcs. Does anyone know if that's the case?)

Does anyone know if the game gets added to the Paradox Launcher if you buy on GOG? I love the idea of a drm-free version but, with all the updates, I don't fancy struggling with GOG's archaic patching system.
