A Linux build of Phoenix Point is due within a day, main release delayed
16 May 2018 at 2:40 am UTC

I just finished playing some. Runs great on my somewhat dated system. Found a couple of bugs along the way. Unfortunately, one of them is with the bug reporting tool. The game is definitely playable and stable. Not much there and constantly being shot at from across the map is not a lot of fun but it's a good start.

I bought it yesterday and it turned into late bed time. It's a great game.

razing32Hmm. Not to be THAT guy....
The video focuses more on gameplay , which is good , since it shows they have a mature product that has the core built , BUT...
What about the lore ?
Anything describing the world we are in and who we are and why we are doing what it is we are doing ?

The've been releasing books that provide backstory for the game.

FedaDid they ever fixed the fonts in the Linux version?
What issue? I didn't notice any font issues in my testing of the game + the DLC.

When I bought it, which was probably more than a year ago, fonts would not display in the game. One had to go look for some Microsoft fonts to fix it.

I used to enjoy fishing from time to time back in the World of Warcraft days.I haven't tried this game though. It's probably best for me to stay away from MMO's

FedaBy the way, are you the Hamish who calls in to Talk Heathen show on youtube?
Nah, I am just one of many Hamishes.

FedaFTL forums on Steam are full of people complaining that the game doesn't work for them any more after the patch. It's funny how those things work.
The updated version from GOG.com works brilliantly for me at least. Are these Linux users having issues or just FTL players in general?

I forgot to mention that it was Windows users.

HamishWell, what do you know, first time playing the game in months and I win easily on my first attempt.

Treasure your Pike Beams folks.

If you can find any. I just got my first ever win with Burst Laser II, Artemis and Ion Bomb. I didn't think I had a chance at all. I'm still not sure how I pulled it off since I ran out of missiles and only had the laser on auto fire for most of the last fight. I was mostly too busy putting out fires to pay attention to anything else. It had to be the attack drone that I deployed as well. There were just no weapons on sale in stores the entire run, it was crazy.

The Linux 2017 GOTY Awards are now over, here's the winners

BeamboomThe problem with relying these kind of things on the readers, is that nobody has played all the titles nominated - far from it. So in fact it becomes a popularity contest instead. For example, I bet my left arm that the only reason Hitman won best graphics is cause that's the game of the nominees that most own and has played. And sadly, I think that will be the case for several of the winners.
And I know I myself am guilty of this. There's even many nominated titles that I'd not even heard of before. Obviously they'd never get my vcote, even if deserved.

This is why I still firmly argue that you, Liam, should decide the most important categories, and have dedicated "readers awards" on just a few. Why? Cause you've played them all. Simple as that. You have a much, much better perspective on this than any average reader will.

That is why I didn't bother voting. I usually play a couple of games during the year, but put a lot of hours in each.
I think that GOL should just give out these rewards without voting and maybe add one "User Choice" category for most popular game.
