Snapshot Games have cancelled the Linux version of Phoenix Point

PJSad news - as an Xcom fan I've been looking forward to this one.

ScooptaI think the real solution to this problem is making steam behave more like flatpak.

+1 . Atm I'm using Steam through Flatpak and all the issues I've had because of Steam runtime / different libraries etc are gone. Smoothest Steam experience I've had. IMO if Steam would back it up officially and embraced this form of packaging we would be in far better shape (not only in terms of gaming).

The Steam from Flatpak is running really smoothly. Didn't had any issue with it.

I bought it few months ago, so I will probably also ask for refund.
This is really sad to hear.

Steam Play thoughts: A Valve game streaming service

I'm not sure is this is really a good idea (regarding cloud services, that are looking for personal data - looking at Google), but it looks nice. I don't know about you, but I have plenty of games on GoG, Humble Bundle and Steam, that I never really want to play (most of the time I bought them with some bundle). So playing on cloud (in case, this only wants my money, not my personal information) could be nice. To have access to any game on cloud (probably newest titles will need some premium account) is pretty nice.

If it will be open source I will certainly support it.

Space action sim Hypergate has a new trailer showing off some intense action

QuoteHowever, it will have online leaderboards to see who is the best

I'm not fan of these, every singleplayer game that have them just didn't checked the actual data.
In HITMAN you could actually see missions completed in second. So most of the time I'm ignoring them and only comparing them with my friends, if anybody is playing the game.

However, the game itself looks great.

rustybroomhandleWarframe has a bug for me where the audio will get all garbled after an hour or so, like it's suddenly under water. Hopefully this will fix that too. It's a minor annoyance as it's easy to make go away, but still would be nice to have fixed.

I'm experiencing the same with Warhammer End Times: Vermintide. The audio is really bad after playing it about an hour.

trawzWell, I finally switched 100% to Linux this month, no more need for dual booting. Wine + DXVK replaced all need for a dual-boot solution. I hope more people will follow

I did this two years ago and there were plenty of games working on Linux back there.
Stopped watching games released only for Windows and I don't regret this decision. There were very few games that were released for Windows, that I wanted to try. (Mostly Warhammer titles - Steam Play allowed me to play Warhammer End Times: Vermintide ) But right now I still have some games in my (linux only) Library I didn't even tested. Not much time for playing right now.

The developer of 'Limit Theory' is throwing in the towel, releasing the source code

Did they want to release only source code or also the assets?

If the assets are made open, this could really help others when making their own game.

Deep Sky Derelicts leaves Early Access, adds Linux support

TheRiddickHmm, why not just have the actions partake in real time on the screen instead of cutting to a comic strip? not sure I follow how combat works, will probably need to wait for some gameplay video.

I think the combat will be similar to Darkest Dungeon.

GOG have gone on the offensive with their new 'FCK DRM' initiative

Alm888And my obligatory (so no one could say I am biased towards GOG and against Steam) "And what it has to do with Gaming on Linux?".
There are many games that can't be run on Linux because of DRM. For example: Warhammer 40k: Eternal Crusade stopped working in wine after they added DRM.

Alm888They preaching about DRM-free while at the same time forcing Galaxy towards everyone's throats.
Galaxy isn't DRM, you don't need it to play GOG games.

I support this movement. The DRM is always breached after some time by pirates. And the warez version is often better than the original, because you don't need DRM software installed (often causing issue with game).
