I purchased this and it's a lot of hyperkinetic fun. Very recommended...

System76 have announced a new Oryx Pro laptop model and it's a bit of a beast

I am using (and gaming with) the prior gen Oryx Pro at home and can't say enough good things about it. I see it as more a mobile desktop to take around the house. It's built like a tank, has a great keyboard, oodles of ports, has a great screen, is easy to access and add SSD's and memory, and it's a guaranteed "will work" with Pop OS or any Linux distro. System 76 has been great with support when needed...

War Brokers, an open-world FPS arrives in Early Access with Linux support, it's not bad

razing32Hmm. Multi only ?
I would prefer being able to host my own server and play with friends vs bots.
Or just shoot some bots at my own leisure.
Think I'll pass on this.

So, wait, this is the anti-Ravenfeld essentially?

noxThis looks really, really fun. Looking forward to trying this one

Agreed, some nice ideas added to a familiar genre.

rustybroomhandleI vote we add a 'no more DRM "debates" in article comments' rule to the TOS so we never have to endure this tedium outside the forum again.

The developer of Helium Rain gave an update on their sales, low overall sales but a high Linux percentage
22 April 2018 at 5:09 pm UTC

This is something I've long wondered... Are there stats for what percentages of an average game's sales come from early access and what percent come from full release? I'd think that the people most interested in a title would go in for early access, but maybe I'm wrong....

GustyGhostIt almost has the same exact stylization as Astrokill.

As a frequent player and fan of both games, besides the fact they are in space and may share the same engine, these two titles are absolutely nothing alike. They conceptually are different, play different, and look different. For Astrokill think of a lush, mission-based, Freespace 2-like shooter with fast action, big explosions, and more degrees of freedom. For Helium Rain, it's a more relaxed and nuanced game, with rich graphics and Elite-type sandbox game style, with an economy and the goal of buying and building your own company and fleet.

Sword fighter 'Blade Symphony' has delayed the next update that was due to get Linux support

Take as much time as you need to get this to Linux, folks... When it arrives, my money will be here waiting patiently for you...

The Vulkan-based compatibility layer for D3D 11 and Wine 'DXVK' has a new release out
15 April 2018 at 6:11 am UTC

cRaZy-bisCuiTIs there a way of donating him a few bugs to keep motivation up and show my appreciation?

This suggests, that someone is already sponsoring the project, but it's just a guess. Given various compatibility efforts by Valve, I wouldn't be surprised if them or someone similar is backing it.

Well, be it Valve or someone else, this is an amazingly impressive effort and the entire ecosystem can benefit. If the developer ever does accept donations, let us know. I'd be happy to contribute.

Is anyone keeping a list of what titles DXVK enables to be used, similar to what WineHQ does for Wine?

Free and open source RTS 'Zero-K' releases on Steam on April 27th
12 April 2018 at 7:21 pm UTC

Looks almost like someone took the Ravenfield archipelago map and decided to make an RTS out of it, which is actually very cool... Looking forward to it, especially with a non-cheating AI.
