Building a Retro Linux Gaming Computer - Part 1: Dumpster Diving

Future Me: You remember back in the 2020's when we needed to use Proton to play Windows games on Linux. Well now, all the games are native Linux, and it is Windows users who need to run LINE to play Linux games.

Building a Retro Linux Gaming Computer - Part 1: Dumpster Diving

Although I wouldn't quite call myself a hoarder, I've still got most of my old computers going back for the last 25+ years. Usually I'd keep the PC Case, and upgrade with new motherboard and expansion cards, but there are many times I've kept the entire old machine and built a new one in a new case.

I still own older computers, i.e. ZX Spectrum and Atari ST (I *think* they're in the attic).

Suffice to say, in my study I've just counted 12 PCs (and that is just the tip of the iceberg, i.e. just the newer kit.)

Solution to gaming on Linux popularity - Get a bunch of popular game streamers to jump onto Linux, praise it, and then we just wait for the torrent, haha.

Steam Lunar New Year Sale has officially begun with tens of thousands discounted

Quoting: pageroundWitcher 3 Wild Hunt GOTY is $10 USD on Steam, GOG, and Humble. Seems lie a good time to pick it up if you have been waiting for a sale.

Funnily enough, that's what I've been considering. I vastly favour buying native Linux titles, but if the game is sufficiently discounted, I'll buy it to play with Proton.

Viking open-world survival game Valheim enters Early Access

Asking about the Server side of things in this game:

If you launch the game, planning to play in single-player - Is the server hosting the game world part of the single-player process, or do you need to separately set up a server to host the game-world which you then connect to ?

With approx 2000 hours in RUST (when Linux worked) and 2000 hours in 7 Days To Die, it looks like Valheim is going to be just the sort of game I like. Already had it on my wishlist, but now I've got renewed excitement for it. COOL!

Quoting: tuubiI think I'll skip future giveaways on Humble unless they're something on my wishlist. Last time I linked my Steam account, unlinking it required two emails to their support and more than a week (and proof that I own the account) for them to actually get it done. Not worth the hassle, and I don't want to leave the accounts linked.

You could also create a 'spare' Steam account, link that to Humble (and leave it connected), claim the giveaway, and use the Steam key with your official account.

Getting Linux running properly on Apple M1 Silicon has begun with Asahi Linux

I find Apple is a very greed-oriented, anti-consumer company. All their products are designed to rip off their consumers, and entrap them inside an ecosystem where the consumer needs to keep paying more and more to prolong their admittance.

The sleekness of their products hides many flaws - Missing peripheral ports, non-upgradeable hardware, non-repairable hardware. Bad for the consumer and bad for the environment. Only good for the shareholder.

I have such great self-control - Being able to resist buying a bundle - Maybe, it's my self-control, or maybe it's that I already own all of the lowest tier, all of the highest tier, and some of the middle tier.
