Valve seem to be tightening their rules on games with sexual content

Maybe they end up like Netflix that has it's own censored versions crap. Soon we'll have to buy from somewhere else to get the "real" thing, like the uncut version.
I'm fine with that though as we might end up with a little more content and users on other platforms. I like that Steam has so many Linux games but I really hate the market share they have.

If you want to see the rhythm-music platformer Runner3 on Linux, they need to see demand for it

We need something like Kickstarter for Linux versions.

Season swapping action platformer FOX n FORESTS is now out

Played it for an hour yesterday and really liked it. PS4 controller worked out of the box.
You get introduced to the various weapons and attacks gradually so it's fairly easy to learn.
It's refreshingly "simple" with only a few things to upgrade and buy. The levels can take a while, but the checkpoints seem to be placed in very good spots so you don't have to use like 10 minutes to get back to the place you died.

I think maybe Samsai will play it on the stream tonight.

Max&Maya, an action RPG with elements of a pet simulator that looks hilarious will have Linux support

"..and literally piss on your enemies." Postal with cats?

I just have to have this one. I love weird shit like this

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

ScooptaI really don't like most of system76's stuff because they like Nvidia which means open source drivers are a no go. They also don't use coreboot both of which are things I like to see in a laptop.

I do agree that it would be best to ditch Intel/nvidia/UEFI/whatever else crap we have but I wouldn't exactly say they're acting very friendly towards Intel and AMI for example. It seems that disabling IME was just a tiny bit of what they have planned:

TiedemannAfter watching a few hours of videos on youtube and having a 2 hour meeting at work where some of it was explained I still don't have a clue as to how to produce the needed documentation for what we have.

No offence, but the final approval of the GDPR was in April 2016, so you had two years of time to inform yourself about this. The text was final in April 2016 and, like everything EU, public. Especially if you work in a muncipality, as part of the government, the information should have been passed down long ago.

And it's not just you. All this rushing, from multiple (most?) orgs in the month before it goes live, after two years of forewarning, feels...not good.

Yeah, but that would mean the ppl at the top would have to listen, and they usually don't unless they're own ass is on fire. It's kinda sad that you have to scare them with the price tag of not complying before they take it seriously.

After watching a few hours of videos on youtube and having a 2 hour meeting at work where some of it was explained I still don't have a clue as to how to produce the needed documentation for what we have. I work in a municipality though so we can't just focus on the GDPR, and even though I personally don't handle more than a fraction of the data we have (system admin kinda role, it's complicated), I still love the whole thing.
Not because it is a lot of work but because a lot of my colleagues are acting like a bunch of ignorant FB users who now have to think about what personal information actually is. It's the need to know/nice to know and consent part of it that makes ppl actually have to care about other peoples data, not only as an employee but also as a private citizen.

I understand why this is a lot of work for small business and sites and I don't envy them

God game 'The Universim' to enter Steam Early Access in August with Linux support

Doktor_MandrakeLooks very similar to Black & White ^^

At least the population in this game won't have to deal with two big creatures "playing" with them

tuubiI wholeheartedly approve of any and all legislature to ban, destroy and eviscerate all tracking cookies and privacy-invading "features" the net is now full of. If it brings down half the world's advertisers and social networks, all the better. None of this really benefits us as individuals and consumers.

Going for the Antisocial Tinfoil Hat of the year award here. And I'm completely serious.

I'm tired of politicians trying to do the "right thing" anyway so I'll vote for a Zeronet/I2P/TOR-type world instead

God game 'The Universim' to enter Steam Early Access in August with Linux support

Dunno if it has been mentioned earlier but they also launched their own store some time ago (yeah, I know it's on their site) and they seem to be very passionate and serious about it so that's nice.
I guess the % of games available on Linux isn't half bad either

I really like the game but haven't played it for a while. It has a nice feel to it and the planet looks really nice. You do have to plan and use your brain but I guess that's a good thing
