Love this game. I uninstalled it for a bit in anticipation of the full release. Now I can go back in with fresh eyes.

Thanks for bringing this site to life. This site is responsible for a lot of my family getting up and running with many Linux games. I'm not a mega supporter but I donate what I can when possible just for that.

I deleted my account awhile back when they first did that switch-n-bait with the bundle payouts. I backed up the only game I did not have else in DRM FREE format which was Skullgirls and kept it moving.

Talking point: what have you been playing recently?

I recently ended Shadow of the Tomb Raider on Stadia. I think I will be stopping there. It's not for me. Too many cut-scenes. Retired The Division 2, Jupiter Hell, Northgard and Starward Rogue (all things unlocked). Time to find some more arcade action games.

Right now with the summer here and family visiting we've been playing a lot of local MP games once again which is my preferred way to game.

Galaxy Champions TV - itch.io

One of the best games from the most recent sale. It's so good. Playing this on a projector with some wireless gamepads is the way.

Streets of Rage 4 - GOG

Playing this one with my wife again and trying to get through boss rush mode with some of the SOR1 characters.

Splody - itch.io

PVE and PVP Bomberman clone done right!

Online I've been playing the following with friends and family

Scott Pilgrim vs. The World™ - Complete Edition - Stadia

We also play this one locally but throughout the week I've been going online to play with my kids who are huge fans of the comic and movie.

PAC-MAN™ Mega Tunnel Battle - Stadia

This is mostly just me but I've got a few ppl that picked it up recently and so that's been fun.

Quoting: MohandevirTo me, and anybody who got a family (with gamers), it's worth gold.

Very true. I have a lot family members that game and we are on each other's family plan so the amount of games we have access too is enormous. I still reserving my purchasing power towards ONLINE ONLY MP games when it comes to Stadia. Games like Tom Clancy's The Division 2, Pac-Man Mega Tunnel Battle and Super Bomberman R Online.

At home my wife and I play Stadia mostly from our desktop and HTPC but I've been gaming more and more from my phone with an attached gamepad.

The demo is great. I'm looking forward to when this goes released on itch.io.

Hellpoint is being given away by GOG for 48 hours during their Summer Sale

Quoting: scaineIf you mean the gods, then I skipped one of them, but of the two I fought, one was pretty straightforward, the other I couldn't beat because he did too much radiation damage... but then I came back in a space suit and it was a total breeze!

I think the game lets you potentially massively "underbalance" your stats. I was a heavy armour guy, so I had taken many, many points in Load... something you just wouldn't do if you wore light armour. But if you try to fight the radiation god without that space suit, I genuinely wonder how you could survive. But without tonnes of points in Load, if you wear the space suit, you basically can't move.

Other than that minor piece of potentially unbalanced gameplay, it's great though. I love the potential customisations. And some of the weapons are just so satisfying (although again, you'll tend to specialise massively around just one of them, sadly).

I meant Sentient Boss and Prodigal Spawn. All of other fights are decent this one was more difficult for my initial builds.

Quoting: scaineI had a lot of fun with this. Great atmosphere and just the right level of "difficult, but do-able". Unlike when I played Dark Souls 3 and absolutely hated how unforgiving it is. Some of Hellpoints fights are hard, sure, but nothing like as bad as that.

I actually finished this and enjoyed most of my 35 hours doing so.

The final fight the with final 'True' bosses can be brutal.
