A quick run over some details from the recent ProtonDB data

HoriI don't think they want anything to do with Linux again.
AFAIK they received threats when Witcher 3 took too long to port + they were mad with Witcher 2's performance (and the fact it was Wine-wrapped, not native), and it got so ugly that they canceled it altogether.
They basically hate us now. Just beause some loud mouths couldn't accept the fact that we're such a small market that a lot of the stuff we get is basically charity, and they went to demand things like some kind of kings or something.

Stupidity of threats aside, that's not how businesses operate. It's not some kind of tantrum driven decision making. They got massively bigger amount of outrage from Windows gamers about so called "downgrade". Do you expect them to stop releasing for Windows now? So, view them as objective enough, but may be clueless and in need of convincing about the Linux market.

I would expect them to stop! That is if I were to fall for their "reasons" (well at least according to some users)…

Always amused me how some ppl seem to think that it cannot be other than Linux or Linux people sucking.
I give it to a lack of self-esteem or outright blatant ignorance.

By the way, did all forget that there was like zero official response for TW3 Linux saga? Not from CDPR, not from VALVE™.
By the way-2, it's not like we don't have planty of examples as to how games that would allegedly have Linux support went south.

Anyway I have learned for myself how to tackle Linux gaming.
Buy only games from Porting houses (Feral, Apsyr, etc.) or games that have day-0 linux support.
All the rest go: echo "SOME_NAME" >> ~/games/.blacklist

The status is pretty solid for me. No day-1, no buy.

If something is not on my terms, then I decline. A simple rule that I follow.

The next version of Lutris will allow you to search for more games directly from the client

Do my eyes deceive me or I see „Platforms“? I guess the only thing left is to have a GOG section or something.

Some information on why Wine is not going to be using DXVK

Come on, guys. You can calm down now…
UNIX world is all about different opinions and ways of doing things. You don't expect everybody to be just like you, now do you?

I'm with mirv on the matter. And I might not be seeing it right, but it was rather a statement-opinion than a question.

By the way I don't want to be that guy, but you do realize that there is a fix for all gaming problems right? ... Windows!

All gaming problems solved in an instant, on top of that you get basicly all games out there (if we don't count console exclusives ofcourse).

Shadow of the Tomb Raider is officially coming to Linux in 2019

XpanderI hope they can do Dirt Rally 2 port also and please closer to release
Didn't even know about Dirt Rally 2!

I would also add Middle-earth: Shadow of War. It's been some time…

14 October 2018 at 6:50 pm UTC

What the actual fuck.
They had to remake it this close??? I was about to buy it, but 32bit is the barier I do not pass.

Anyway. Guess I will use the cash for a book instead (an actual book, as in paper).
