Our top Linux picks released in 2018, the GamingOnLinux editor awards

I really wanted to like Hero-U (and still put a number of hours into it) but I fall into the category of people who find it off-putting. I loved the QFG games, but having a timed adventure/RPG was just a kick in the pants.

I liked the characters (even romanced one) and the combat was fine - I just wish you weren't rushed! Felt more like "Jones In The Fast Lane" than QFG.

Just when you think you can stop drinking, Wine 4.0 has another release candidate available

You're really getting a lot of mileage out of that joke, aren't you Liam? But it's basically a GoL tradition now, so carry on old son.

I would imagine they would finish up any of their current commitments, but new games from here on in will be Windows/Xbox exclusive.

Valve has expanded the Steam Play whitelist to include DARK SOULS III and plenty more

KuromiSorry, WHAT? Primordia? But this game is runs on linux on its own...

It can run with Linux AGS, yes. But now its super easy, and will show them how many Linux users they have.

Book of Demons no longer getting a native Linux port, developer plans on 'supporting' Steam Play (updated)

At the end of the day, it ends up as a Linux sale. So I'm happy enough with that. Its not perfect, sure, but such is life.

Dark sci-fi platformer 'Orphan' looks awesome, still heading to Linux

I got it thru Kickstarter as well. I've only played a few mins, but have enjoyed it so far. Its a bit like Limbo with an inventory. The 360 controller doesn't seem work with SteamPlay though, so hopefully that gets fixed up for the Linux version.

inXile confirm the Linux version of The Bard's Tale IV is being worked on

It works with SteamPlay, but the longer the wait the better. It was pretty clearly not done cooking.

QuoteAnd I WANT The Amazing Adventures of Captain Spirit (that is unplayable on Steamplay due to Denuvo.. but a report said that it works with the Steam client in offline mode)

Why does it have Denuvo if its a free download...?

Anywho, looking forward to playing BTS.

An update on the Linux version of Underworld Ascendant

Actually talking about Battletech, they did release an update recently about Linux:

Linux update: The team is still actively working on our Linux release. We hit a snafu with playback of audio (as in, “There’s no sound in the game”) but we’ve gotten support from an external party and appear to be back on track. We expect the Linux version to be available in Beta within the next few weeks.

We apologize to our Kickstarter Backers and to others waiting to play the game in Linux or their native language and we’re doing our best to get this work done as soon as possible. More details regarding localization can be found in this BATTLETECH Community thread.

Valve officially confirm a new version of 'Steam Play' which includes a modified version of Wine

This is amazeballs. It pretty much confirms a few conspiracy theories we all had, and its nice to finally hear some news from Valve.

I get that some people are worried about the future of Linux natives, but I see it as win-win. The publishers (like Bethesda) who never intended to support Linux - we can still play their games, if we want.

They can also see how many people are playing thru Proton, and if the numbers increase it may make them think twice about doing Linux natives.
