The open source project 'xoreos' released version 0.0.5 'Dawn Star'
6 July 2018 at 12:32 am UTC

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.

Surviving Mars huge 'Curiosity' update is now live

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
29 May 2018 at 5:36 pm UTC

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.

Bum Simulator will simulate life as a homeless person

As someone who has helped the homeless, I find the concept to be disgusting.

The homeless, to contradict "Saint" Ronald Reagan, do not "choose to be homeless." A very large number of Americans are one paycheck away from insolvency. A medical bill can leave a whole family insolvent. And the Republicans persist in taking health care away from the poorest, so they can give big tax breaks to the rich. Of course, the rich STILL don't have enough money.

It's pretty easy to ridicule the "least of these" (read Matthew 25) from a warm, comfortable house or apartment. Grow a heart, and do not buy this game.

The open source fantasy turn-based strategy game 'Battle for Wesnoth' is now on Steam

This is great news; a really good TBS game is available on Steam. It is the first FOSS game on Steam which is free to play. A few other FOSS games have been sold on Steam: MegaGlest, TOME, Vulcan Nethack/SLASH'em, and a couple more I can't remember at the moment. They all cost less than $5.00, and the devs get some $$$ to further development. Nothing in the GNU License says that you can't sell your software, as long as you make the source code available.

Good news for every TBS fan.

RPG Tower of Time has a big update to their Linux build, leaving Early Access this month

I'll add that this is the best-looking indie game I have ever played, and that the devs are constantly on the Steam Forums, answering questions, even posting spoilers. The combat in this game is unique and terrific.

Make a name for your family in 'SAELIG', as it's now on Linux
17 April 2018 at 5:05 am UTC

Bought it and it's downloading now, but it's 1:00AM and I'm going to bed.

It does indeed look good enough that I'm buying it, just because of GOL.

Civilization VI: Rise and Fall is a solid and focused expansion
3 April 2018 at 1:14 pm UTC Likes: 2

Got it, played for 30 minutes or so, and realized that I would prefer playing Dominions 5, which is far, far deeper. No game (and I've been playing solo since 2009) has the depth, the enormous variety of strategies, and the amazing (labeled, and a whole lot of people complain about the perfectly serviceable graphics) variety of units.

And it is Worth. Every. Penny.

It's a pretty good RPG, with separate battle screens, and a darn good story, so far at least.
