Valve is getting back to focusing on gaming, with non-gaming videos being retired

scaineI suspect this is a (or another) reason that Steam devices didn't really take off. Playstation and Xbox both allow Netflix, Spotify and others on their consoles. Why would you buy a SteamPC that doesn't support any of that. Pretty ridiculous.
dubigrasuGood thing I guess.
I feared at one point that Valve deliberately ignored having Netflix/Amazon/etc apps available on their SteamOS/Steam Machines because they tried to push their own movie store.
Can't people just use the web clients on SteamOS?

Last time I checked, Netflix through web browsers was limited to 720p. There are workarounds, but for the masses, it's a no-go. You need an officially supported Netflix client (or Microsoft Edge) to get the 1080p+ resolution.
Can you link the workarounds, for posterity?

Wow, this is quite something. I'm not sure I'll still want to play any of these games in like 5 years but still, it's comforting and good for game preservation. It'd be interesting to give them a spin on a more sound technical foundation at the very least. It'd benefit things like Enderal too.

And maybe that's how Bethesda will finally get a decent game engine to use. ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

I thought buying videos on Steam was convenient, but eh, I'll live with it I guess. Certainly don't mind the focus being maintained on games. If this actually takes away significant resources from that focus or even just makes too little money, a perfectly understandable decision.

Barotrauma, a co-op submarine adventure set on Jupiter's moon Europa is promising, has a demo

A co-op submarine adventure taking place on another planet(oid)? Now that's what I call a pitch!

Alright so, I've upgraded and it still runs for me. Arch, Nvidia, Wine Staging 4.1, a clean 64 bit prefix with mono, using Knyazev's launcher.

Uh oh. I really hope it's not an instant regression from 4.0. As soon as 4.1 staging lands in Arch (or in Lutris, I guess), I'll test. I've been playing it a lot lately ever since it got fixed.

Sunless Skies is officially out and it's truly an awesome experience
1 February 2019 at 12:20 am UTC

Hey Liam, did you like Sunless Sea? I liked it conceptually but found the overall pacing of the game insufferably slow. How does this compare in that aspect? It sounds from your description that it's easier to progress and enjoy the narrative, but is it really the case, have they tweaked the formula?

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

So... there is a piece of free / open source software out there that is of demonstrably high quality and that you personally admit to be of value, that is there for you to just grab as it's under the zlib license, but you're not going to use it because the developer didn't respond to your "notice me senpai" emails? Lol k.

I absolutely don't mind there being two competing implementations, and I have no doubt that not everybody in the wine project shares this rationale and sentiment, but this is really silly.

Just over a year after the last main release, Wine 4.0 is officially here

I don't know how many people will care, especially since you can't buy this game anymore but the graphical artifacts in Test Drive Unlimited 2 are finally gone.
