It's always 12pm, and sunny, somewhere when it comes to Wine.

These kind of news makes me very sad.

Quoting: Upscale
Quoting: BielFPsMicrosoft to do list:
[x] Bethesda
[x] Activision
[ ] Epic Games
Don't forget Nintendo off that list

If Nintendo wants to survive in this mega-corps acquisitions era, they should purchase SEGA, and Square-Enix, and maybe do an alliance with Valve to bring some of their titles to PC.

But another gaming crash is nigh. Who knows what will happen.

OK Geralt :P

Steam Deck on track for the end of February

Quoting: BielFPs
Quoting: ArehandoroMy order availability now says after Q2 2022.
All these delays might make steam deck miss the hype train. I think if the experience isn't already good on arrival, this could make Deck fail on start too.

Agreed, experience needs to be good on arrival. The delay for me isn't a big deal, might give me the chance to play Breath of the Wild 2 before.

Quoting: BielFPsValve should also release a new game with deck in mind to show the device qualities, like other "consoles" usually do.

This is a very good idea, but considering no one has mentioned it before, I'm afraid there isn't anything in development for the Deck's launch (I really want to be wrong here)

My order availability now says after Q2 2022. Therefore nothing for another 6 months approx.

A look at the top 100 Steam games on Linux - January 2022 edition

From that list, I own around 10% of the games, and probably have not heard about 40% of the others, and not interested in the rest. It's becoming easier for people like me xD

The Steam Winter Sale 2021 is now live

I couldn't resist myself and got a few. But probably won't be able to play them until Feb or so:

Shadow Tactics - Blades of the Shogun: Aiko's choice: I loved the original, the expansions looks great and mimimi deserve the purchase of the game for having a Linux build anyway.

A Plague Tale: Innocence: I've heard wonders about the story, and for £8 is a bargain.

Psychonauts 2: I did say I would buy it in GOG when Linux was released. But... sometimes one needs to eat its own words.

Banner Saga 3: To continue the game with the choices from the first 2 games.

The Witcher 3: To complete the collection in GOG and Steam.

Only one native, and the rest in Proton though :(

Merry Christmas and happy holidays to everyone. Hope you're all safe, enjoying some good Linux (Proton included) games, and why not, even some good company.

Thanks for doing such a great job, you know who you are, for creating such a cool little corner on the internet, and allowing me in it!

Here wishing a much better 2022 for everyone!

My favourite 2021 games played on Linux

Probably my only native game of the year is Shadow of the Tomb Raider. I did spend several dozen hours to Dragon Ball: Kakarot and Cyberpunk, though. Very good games.
