Valve making steps to address toxic behaviour on Counter-Strike: Global Offensive

Quoting: TheSHEEEP
Quoting: KimyrielleAs a general remark: I got quite some experience with bullies, both online and offline. And honestly, if I had a dime for every time I heard the line "Take a chill pill! It's just a game!!!" when somebody tried to excuse being an asshole in a game, I'd be rich.
By now I'm 90% sure those "assholes" and "bullies" you met online were just venting some frustration, which you somehow took personal and made a much bigger issue of than it really is.
Competitiveness leads to high stress levels, which lead to people being frustrated, which leads to venting - which usually isn't nice, true, but it's just part of the environment. And especially kids and teens are prone to that due to a general lack of self-control.
Which some people will do relentlessly and those need to be muted (trust me, I wish Mordhau had such a feature back when I played it). But if someone just goes sweary for a moment and then shuts up (which is the vast majority), there's no reason to step in.
If you act like an asshole, even if it is due to frustration or stress, doesn't that make you an asshole?
Also from my own experience from games like DotA or LoL there are alot of people who act consistently in a toxic manner (or: like assholes). It's for a reason those games' communities have such a bad reputation.
So in my opinion it's quite likely that the majority of the people Kimyrielle sees as assholes are actually ones (not literally). Though I would argue that those (=random people in multiplayer games) wouldn't count as bullies but I guess that depends on your definition of what consist of bullying.
(this is just regarding the part I quoted, I'm not necessarily disagreeing with most of your other points).

EU4 will (most likely) soon get a subscription based service where you buy a monthly fee to gain access to all DLCs (they added localization files for this in a recent update).

Quoting: razing32Hmm
Does it have workshop support ?
Would be cool if people can make their own characters/cars.
Yes it does: https://www.gamingonlinux.com/articles/the-excellent-slay-the-spire-adds-in-steam-workshop-support-works-well.13279

Streets of Rogue now has a Level Editor and Steam Workshop in Beta, along with an update released
27 November 2019 at 3:58 pm UTC

Quoting: andipandihi there,
I am a newbie to streets of rogue. I purchased it on gog. Is it possible to benefit from updates like in steam anyway? I would be happy to use the ölevel editor. I tried to add the game to the steam library but there - obviously - I cannot update it in any way. Did I miss something?
greets
andy
You usually have to download the new version from GoG if a new update is released. However GoG has usually less frequent updates so the update may not be available on GoG yet (I haven't checked though).

Stellaris 2.4 is out with the new Paradox Launcher included

Quoting: EhvisCan the launcher be skipped? Because this is just a needless step that I don't need.
You can start Stellaris directly from it's installation directory.

I agree with eldaking. Platform and negative filters would be nice, also unless I missed it there's no OR filter

The Humble Crusader Kings II Bundle seems like an amazing deal for strategy game fans
31 July 2019 at 11:24 am UTC Likes: 2

Definitely worth it. 15 bucks for a whole game is usually not a deal you get for Paradox games :P
Only DLCs missing are:
Europa Universalis IV Converter (converting your CK2 game to EU4)
Ruler Designer (create your own ruler at the start of the game)
Customization Pack (change your current rulers looks)
Also a bunch of cosmetic/music DLCs

The perils of crowdfunding for Linux games: Eco edition

Hosting a server works on Linux too if you use Mono. It's unofficial and unsupported but I didn't have any problem with the server so far.

Quoting: Whitewolfe80doesnt the epic store work perfectly under lutris it did last time i checked in with it now yes ill never buy anything epic related but if you got bl3 with a graphics card cant see the harm

Right. And since windows bloatware is included in the package why not installing windows too? I've heard that the last iteration is very stable and performing plus it's supported by virtually every PC game out there.

Sorry you are comparing lutris to windows because ?
I'm pretty sure he's comparing Epic Store to Windows, given that both of them like to spy on their users.
