UsualAny news on Awesome Adventure of Captain Spirit?
I've been able to play it via proton without issues, good performance (50~60fps) with almost everything maxed out on a gtx 1060 3GB, 1080p
Cool, but how to import Captain Spirit save game from Proton to Linux version of the Life is Strange 2?

ShmerlImprovement, but far from enough to make Nouveau work properly.
They don't need Nouveau to work properly, they need Nouveau to work enough to justify keeping certain kernel interfaces in place, to prevent cases like this one.

ElectroDDThey will sabotage themselves in 3-4 years by being too greedy or because investors want more.
Like EA sabotage themselves every year, yet they earn more money every year?

The open source game manager Lutris had another sweet update recently

Also, I playing Prey on Proton right now, and find that eventually game starting to crash, corrupt save files and stuff. Somehow, disabling esync OR increasing DefaultLimitNOFILE doesn't help - for some reason, only doing both (second advice here help me get rid of crashes and corrupted save files.

Let's visit Prey page:

As we can see, there is four installation scripts and no workarounds for crashes. I'm afraid there is many games left in such semi-working state in Lutris database.

I tried to use Lutris a couple of times (Fallout 3, StarCraft II) in one case game doesn't start at all (turns out it's easier to setup Proton for Fallout 3) and in another there text rendering issues with

Well, I see that developers and community done tremendous work. At least, in SC2 case Lutris installation script indeed produce better results than me, when I trying to setup wine prefix for SC2 manually. But, I have to say, that from regular gamer point of view, Lutris praise is not always justified. At least, not in case of some games, that have broken installation scripts (I tried Fallout 3 installation script on three or four different devices with different Ubuntu/Mesa/GPU, outcome is always the same - game doesn't work, so I conclude at least back then installation script was clearly broken).

Also, why League of Legends banner is even on main page of if it's "BROKEN ON OLD VERSIONS OF UBUNTU, LINUX MINT AND DEBIAN!" (is 18.04 or 18.10 is old? Or 16.04 is old, but 18.04 is not? How to find out?) and "CURRENTLY BROKEN ON UBUNTU, LINUX MINT AND DEBIAN! May work with Arch-based distributions."

Epic Games have confirmed a Linux version of their store is not on the roadmap

CorbenC'mon Micrsoft... finally do, what you wanted to do already with Windows 8. Lock down your OS so only apps from your Windows App store can be installed. People with either accept it, or... hrhr.

Valve is ready for this scenario. Humble, GoG and too. And I bet Origin, UPlay and even Epic will adapt very quickly and release Linux versions of their store clients ;)
Nope, they will just publish their games in platform's store, just like they do with Android, Xbox, etc.

There's a brand new Steam Play Beta version out with FAudio, also a Steam Play whitelist update

How they pick up games for whitelisting? Whitelist changelogs is always somehow bizarre.

It's nice to see Battletech has been released on Linux. So, at least for me, it's instabuy.
