Some thoughts on Valve’s new Steam Play feature and what it means for Linux gaming
24 August 2018 at 10:52 am UTC Likes: 6

All I know is I just installed MGSV: TPP and to my genuine surprise, it works perfectly!! Besides not logging in online but I don't need that.

Never thought I'd play that in Linux, I never had luck with vanilla WINE.

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

Well, I'm currently somewhere with a very limited internet connection and only my laptop running Void Linux (not my main gaming desktop), but even still I enabled the beta, installed Doom II and it worked no problem at all. Granted a game wrapped with DOSBOX will work anytime, but I was just pleased that Steam itself and automagically installing the Proton stuff worked fine. Certainly makes things so much easier.

Playing Prey on Linux in 2018

I feel fortunate to have an original retail copy then.

One of my old favorites this game. Deserves more credit than it typically receives IMO.

FTL: Faster Than Light has a new patch to fix some lingering issues

I have fond thoughts/memories of FTL, not only because it's a great game in itself, but for me it was also one of the early Steam for Linux games. Great to see it still supported in some way.

Observer is now available for Linux on GOG, patch available for Mesa users

The patch works great. I still experienced a myriad of crash to desktops (AMD 380X on Mesa) no matter what version of Mesa I used, until I started Observer with the Mesa cache disabled. I haven't had a crash since, touch wood.

Clash of Robots is a pretty terrible mobile-port fighting game

I could be wrong, but I think Liam didn't like the game very much.

Get ready to become a neural detective as 'Observer' is now on Linux, AMD not supported

johndoeTested the patch now also with 17.2.5 and 17.3.0-rc5 > works!
Happy gaming AMD and Intel mesa users!

@AMD-mesa-users: Please report back if it works for you - and of course to Aspyr.
We need "official" Mesa support.

Thanks heaps man! It works fine here, on AMD 380X with Mesa-git on Arch Linux

What are you playing this weekend?

The other thing about F1 2017 that has genuinely surprised me is how stable it is. And this is a Vulkan only title I'm playing on RadV (AMD 380X).

Kudos Feral. Linux gaming really is going places when we get ports like that.

Football Manager 2018 has released with same-day Linux support

Interesting, this game must be doing alright for them on Linux if they keep supporting the platform.

Been playing F1 2017 with the Logitech Driving Force GT myself actually. Works superbly and I've been having a blast! I wasn't sure we'd have a racing game I'd enjoy as much as DiRT Rally, but damn, F1 2017 is brilliant.
