Be prepared to build from nothing as 'Kingdom Two Crowns' now has a Linux beta

I played the "Kingdom Classic" and it was really nice game. This looks interesting.

ShmerlQA costs a lot more than you might think.

Yes, QA is very costly. But if the Google could provide some testing machines, that could run your tests, you could at least some QA to your customers. But this depends on Google itself, if it wouldn't want to promote Linux gaming and only support Stadia, this will not be the case.

SalvatosA false sense that they are protecting an industry they care about, probably.

This could be a valid point, but as you said it's only a false sense. Best is if you buy directly from developer.

ShmerlFeel free to comment in that thread. It's surprising how many DRM proponents are commenting there. I suspect most of them aren't sincere users, but represent the pro-DRM side of publishers.

Probably, because I can't understand why any gamer wants to promote DRM gaming. Don't know much of the gamers, that are happy, when the game can't be played offline or not starting because of DRM.

ShmerlI posted the proposal here:

Stadia subreddit has an official community manager from Google. So I guess this is as good as it gets, if she can help directing this to anyone in the company who could use such idea.

I read your subreddit and it's nice how you are trying to explain how DRM is wrong and it shouldn't be used. I myself always wonder, why the DRM is even used, when it doesn't affects sales. Who doesn't want to pay never will, with or without DRM. I agree with the movies, it is the most sick industry in regards of DRM.

I'm even convinced, that the sales wouldn't be affected if every software will be open sourced.

This makes me believe that even Stadia can bring something positive to world of OSS.

Valve just released a big Steam Play update with Proton now based on Wine 4.2 & more

Time to test my Steam play games against new version of Proton :-)

Here comes the Evil Corp. Now you will be vendor locked not only by e-mail, cloud and other web services, but by the games itself. And as a bonus you can pay us with your privacy.

Thanks, I'll pass.

The Linux beta of X4: Foundations has been running nicely, a new update is now out

QuoteI will say this, it's definitely not a user friendly game. The tutorials were a bit naff but once you get into the swing of it, there's a lot of details to appreciate in it.
X had always a rather simple tutorials and you still felt lost on the beginning, but it's really an awesome game. When I first saw X4 trailer I was like: "Wow, is this even true?"

I plan to buy it when it's ready, X3 linux ports worked really nice, so I think the X4 will be no exception.

GameHub is another open source game launcher, giving Lutris some competition

This looks like a nice manager for games. I actually don't remember what I bought where and most of the time I'm using only steam because of this. But this looks like something that could help me with this problem.

Mountain Man"I hear you like launchers, so here's a launcher for your launchers!"

Has it really come to this?

I didn't heard about any launcher for GOG or Humble Bundle for Linux.
