ScummVM 2.0 released adding support for more classic games
18 December 2017 at 11:16 am UTC Likes: 1

Thanks to ScummVM I was able to play classic Lucas games that for being too young, or lack of money at that time or whatever reason couldn't enjoy back in the day. Now also adds the possibility to play even more games. That's fantastic and probably never thanked the team enough! So in case any of them is reading this; thanks a lot!

tuubiI bought the Blackwell Bundle for 1.29€ (-90%). Not bad for four old-school adventure games with great reviews. I'm actually familiar with the series and Dave Gilbert's work in general from the time I used to hang out at the AGS forums a decade ago, but I haven't gotten around to actually playing any of these. Should provide a few hours of budget fun.

All joint together are probably the best classic style graphic adventure I have tried in quite a few years

Steam now has a form of platform-specific wishlisting, to help developers see demand

BeamboomBut I can't start adding games to the wishlist without knowing there's at least some talk about it coming to Linux. My list would be insanely long then...

It could be that there won't be a talk about coming to Linux without a previous wishlist with enough interests on it... We are creating a vicious circle that might end up on a spiral of death and destruction xD

ATOM RPG is a rough, but promising Early Access post-apocalyptic RPG

I might be a bit of a weirdo but I find very difficult to enjoy a game with a set up that is almost a copy of another one that I have played before. The game could be fun, or even better, but I just can't help it.

Wine 2.22 is out with input improvements, XAudio improvements and a fix for The Witcher 3

ArehandoroNot fully related to Wine 2.22 but I updated yesterday to Staging 2.21 and since then Origin does not work for me and The Witcher 3 doesn't even start.

Are you trying to play TW3 through Origin??? Don't. DRM-free version works and starts without any issues.

Oh gosh, no! hahaha. Sorry for the poor explanation. Origin didn't work when I was trying to play Mass Effect and then separately The Witcher 3 didn't either playing the standalone GOG version.

I end up formatting the whole computer. Tinkering with the system for the last two days I realised that some native games had stopped working as well, reinstalling them didn't work... a bit of a mess. I guess at some point I did something that broke libraries and dependencies. As for Wine, I had installed Children of the Zodiarcs, TW3, Mass Effect and FFIX all in a working state but Children of the Zodiarcs. When I realised TW3 would not work I checked all the other and none worked but Cof Zodiarcs hahaha.

Will try again this week and see what happens.
