EikeDOOM 2016 confirmed!

But Doom is Vulkan and MacOS don't support Vulkan very well.

XpanderI don't really get it. its all wrong way imo. Violence seems to be fine, blood, gore, killing.

Not in Germany. By the way: Thanks again for gifting me L4D2.
Do you remember? L4D2 (uncut) and some other Games like Dying Light are Court seized in Germany until today. I can't buy them normally on Steam. Also I can't buy a Game like Attentat 1942 in Germany without tricks.

Every country has maybe its idiosyncrasies. And the censors are pursuing their targets with an uncanny energy when it comes to computer games. At some point you just don't feel like it anymore and take it. After all, we all have other things to do in life. But it is a very worrying development.

ageresGaben hates anime, that's the reason.

Unless it's about ponies. "Perverted".

I'm not interested in these Japanese girl games. But it's ultra sick when someone need to banish something like that. Adult or not:

How sick is our society today? Do we want conditions like in Iran? Get out on the street!

KithopTreat the US as 'damaged' and route around it is all we can do, for now. Maybe something in Europe will work better, but who knows at this point. Too early to tell.

Recently I could also observe this here in Europe (Germany). We recently passed laws of this kind. Even though these laws are hardly directed against comic figures you can observe a certain chilling effect. Especially on this subject, a false suspicion is devastating. In the end, people renounce their basic rights.

The picture I linked above is from Balthus. Until a few years ago, art like this was exhibited normally in Germany. But for some time now, museums no longer dare. For me this is frightening in a country like Germany with its past of so-called degenerated art.

And the good Americans elect a president who treats women like cattle. But that's all right as long as you don't find pixel breast anywhere. It is indeed difficult to explain this world to young people.

ElectricPrismMy opinion is that yes there is content in the game that looks like the characters represent girls under the age of 18.

Sorry but it's not a person. Is not a lifelike drawing. This is a lifelike drawing:

And that, in turn, is art protected by our Basic Law. At least in my country. Germany.

Gonza565It reads like satire.

Yeah, but they're serious. These people frighten me. I hope they don't have children.

Rocket League to get a new arena and music later this month, cross-platform parties due this summer & more

Does cross platform mean that we can have Linux and PS4 clients in the same party?

Valve have announced the Steam Link app and the Steam Video app (updated)
9 May 2018 at 6:14 pm UTC

I don't think Valve will be offering a cloud service on this basis in a not so distant future. For people who have an appropriate network connection. Hence their commitment to SteamOS and AMD.

The PC market has not been a growing market for a long time.

Rise of the Tomb Raider for Linux to release tomorrow, April 19th

On Steam it already has the SteamOS symbol.
