Everyone should play this game, it's great. Even if they don't like racing games, because it's actually a 3D platformer

riusma"Working with fire and steel" is a song from China Crisis... there is always a song in the clue!

China you say? Guess it's Total War: THREE KINGDOMS then.

That was my first thought too. Wouldn't say no to Shadow of War though, either

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

NonjuffoHave you tested RS2014 with Proton? That title is a serious mess of uplay, hardware dongles and ... Denuvo? WTH? Pretty sure that DRM wasn't there in 2014. Maybe that is the "remastering" they did later.

I haven't yet no, and I haven't played it under Wine for a while, although the last time was post the Remaster, which suggests if Ubi have shoehorned UPlay and Denuvo in, it's happened recently. Really hope that's not the case, as it worked well under Wine before, and I was hoping the integration into Steam/Big Picture would mean a lot easier set up under Linux in the future. I'll test and report back when I can.

Dear God... the possibilities!

My first thought is Windows is gone from all of my machines forever, starting with the HTPC I use to play Rocksmith 2014 on.

Thank you Pierre-Loup, Yorha2B, and the rest of the Linux/graphics team at Valve,... doing such great work.

Bloody hell, that reminds me, I need to renew my CodeWeavers subscription.

Are you me?

The amount of Linux users on Steam has increased when going by daily active users
9 July 2018 at 2:42 pm UTC

One thing these calculations don't take into account is whether the amount of Linux users has increased in 'real terms'; that is, either normalised against the increase in population, or the increase in purchasing price power over time.

Basically, has the increase in Linux users over time kept up with the increases in costs required to port games to that platform? I would suggest that it hasn't, and the proof is that the number of "big" titles we see has slowed down markedly since the Valve push a few years ago.

Personally, I'm not particularly fazed by this as I think things like Wine/DXVK/Lutris are becoming attractive enough for a lot of Windows users who are either interested in Linux or dislike Windows enough to make the switch, which will increase our market share. We also know Valve is still investing in the Linux ecosystem, and might be planning something to give the platform a push in the future.

The barrier to entry to switch to Linux for gaming is lower than ever before; I think we're still in a good spot all things considered.

Looks like 'Desperados: Wanted Dead or Alive' may be coming to Linux
