inXile confirm the Linux version of The Bard's Tale IV is being worked on
17 October 2018 at 1:22 am UTC

This may be a way for inXile to get back in my good graces, after they blew more than $4M and 4 years on Torment:Tides of Numenera, which had a damn novel of text, which was well-written, but has itself gotten a lot of criticism, and about 50% of a full game. They didn't even build an engine, but used PoE's very good engine.

And still they put out a CRPG with ~50 hours of play time.

Today, Linux game porter Ethan Lee begins officially working on Steam Play's Proton

I have been able to get a few of the Windows games I had bought back in my dual-booting days, and am able to run BioShock (the original), Oblivion, Banished (no sound), Bejewled, and one or two others. It's been a crapshoot; some games run perfectly, some won't run at all, and some just are silent.

And it will only improve.

Planetary Annihilation: TITANS has a new public test build up with lots of improvements

I was pretty happy with having supported PA on Kickstarter in '13 (seems so long ago), and it was delivered about, iirc, about 15 months later, and the next year, I got PA:TITANS for free. Those devs definitely are still taking care of their customers.

According to Kotaku, Microsoft is close to buying Obsidian

Why couldn't it have been InXile?

What are you playing this weekend?

Torchlight II, believe it or not...

Some thoughts on Valve’s new Steam Play feature and what it means for Linux gaming

I bought Bejeweled 2 Deluxe, a Windows game for $5, and it runs like a champ. Nice to be able to play the original match-3 game. Doki Doki Literature club, also.

Yes, DOOM is available. With my total suckage with FPS games, that's one I'll pass.

On the other hand, I would immediately purchase The Witcher 3, if it gets on the Proton list.

I already have BG1, BG2, IWD. and Neverwinter Nights, all from Beamdog. This, I'm afraid, is a solution without a problem.

The competitive RTS 'Coregrounds' that mixes on Tower Defense and MOBA elements is out in Early Access
6 July 2018 at 12:25 am UTC

I've been computerless for the last month or so. I'm using a smartphone now, until my Acer N15 arrives tomorrow. It has a 7th generation i3 with a nVidia graphics chip, 4 GB RAM, a slot for an SSD and a 1TB hard drive. The SSD will be /, and the hard drive will be /home.

For $400 on Amazon. It's getting a lot of reviews calling it the most bang for the buck in under $400 laptops.

If you're interested...

I, of course, love tower defense games.

A 5-part TUTORIAL??? It's downloading as I'm typing this, and it is nice for Paradox to show me how to play their %$^$$%$* game...

Later: Yes, it really does tell you how to play the game, with instructions, tooltips, and a voice.

I'm finally glad I sprung for SM. I'm afraid I just couldn't figure it out the way I bought it.

Thanx Paradox!

Re-Legion is a cyberpunk RTS where you convert citizens into your cult, will support Linux

Inasmuch as I have been 100% unsuccessful in converting my friends and family to at least try booting a live USB, and three of them had to pay ~$100 to fix their computer running the biggest malware magnet, known as the OS known as Windows, the game does look attractive.
