* The Suicide of Rachel Foster (runs almost fine with Proton 5.0-9, sometimes you are forced to kill the process after exiting the game) : not a bad game, almost a mix between Gone Home and Firewatch with a more "horrific" atmosphere...

* The Darkside Detective a nice pixelart point & click!

* A Short Hike a very nice and relaxing (short) experience!

Forgotten Fields is a new narrative adventure from the dev of Rainswept

Nice! Rainswept is a good point n' click game (could have been a bit more polished but considering that it was developed by one dev it's more than OK for the price).

Insurgency (Source) mainly, but also Snake Pass (thx Houtworm) a nice game with unusual controls that works without any problem so far with Proton 5.0-9!

Quoting: riusmaInsurgency: Sandstorm is back on my wishlist!

Is the original still better?

Well, it's difficult for me to answer this question as I've never run Sandstorm! I love the Source Engine Insurgency for its tactical gameplay on coop (I don't play often on PvP) and I just suppose that I can have the same feeling on Sandstorm with better graphics (Source Insurgency looks good enough on urban maps and has nice skyboxes but there is often something that don't feel "organic" enough in the layout because everything seems to be too much aligned on a grid, not a problem on dense urban areas but that don't work that much on Peak or Panj maps for example), a bit of character customization (which is always fun and may lead to less "Hey X, is that you on the other side of the street?" when I play with friends and we are using Steam vocal chat for coordination) and more weapons / games mechanics variety (always nice to have)... and performance issues on Sandstorm seem to be a thing of the past now (from what I've heard)! Note that I will probably play Source Insurgency nonetheless as some of my friends don't have PC that can run Sandstorm (Source Insurgency has really a good "Looks good vs Hardware needed" ratio imho), but sometimes I wish to be able to play on an upgraded / more modern version of the game (and Sandstorm seems to run just fine on Proton outside of the obvious EAC problem)!

Come tell us about what you've been gaming on Linux lately

Insurgency even if I didn't have much time to play last week unfortunately... Maybe I will have a look at Ground Branch through Proton (seems to run well according to Protondb) after their next update as a new tactical shooter (we are definitively lacking in that field), hopping that it will be possible to have an easy to setup listen server in the near future (they will probably have an anticheat that will block Proton in the end). :)

What are you clicking on this weekend? Come have a chat in the comments

With some friends (Linux & Windows) we abandoned L4D2 (after twenty hours of play) for Insurgency and I must say that it is really an excellent tactical FPS, very pleasant to play (mainly in coop on the official servers for the moment), with a rather pleasant community (some undesirable behaviors from time to time but rather little overall) ... almost sixty hours of play in a few weeks and I do not think that I will stop soon (and there is not much else available in terms of tactical FPS under Linux)! ^_^
