Colony building sim Maia surprises with a big feature release, gets ray-marched shadows
26 January 2021 at 3:34 pm UTC

I also was so surprised to see some action, unfortunately it's still such a mess to make progress and not having everyone die of hunger. Save & Load still helps and some things did get better. That said, I also have a soft spot for that gave as I was one of the early adopters and you don't get those type of games anymore (I do not tolerate simplicity of graphics and Indy-style games). Still managed to kill few hours over this weekend :)

Wasteland 3 now available on Linux from inXile Entertainment

Sweet. I'm sure there's going to be a Christmas sale soon or something. It was already 50% off recently, so a little patience and we can support these guys. Enjoyed Wasteland 2 and was waiting for this one. Just in time for my new PC :)

AMD Radeon RX 6800 and the RX 6800 XT are out today
18 November 2020 at 4:34 pm UTC

Quoting: ShmerlCustom models will come out on November 25th.

I don't see much value this time around (with RTX3000 and RX6000 series) in AOB versions of the cards. Probably with nVidia you get a normal power connectors and better cooling, but for AMD...I'm not sure, it looks like reference design is very efficient (read silent/cool (as in temp.)). But OC-wise, reference designs are running very close to the limits already, so...

As for me, I'm still a bit torn between 6800 and 6800XT, I'm not running 4K setup, only 2K, but I'd like some head room for a few years...my Ryzen 5900X is on a back order for God know how long, so I still have time to decide, I guess. I'm finally going AMD for Graphics, last time that happened it was Radeon 9550...

War Thunder gets a huge upgrade along with Vulkan by default on Linux (updated)
18 November 2020 at 10:35 am UTC

I don't know, it's a black screen on xorg, but on wayland I'm getting a graphic initialization error and incompatible vulkan driver version error right after =\

I watched an interview with the producer (I think) and they said they are not really investing into linux, because while it works somewhat it's fine, but no major investment/improvement planned because linux is such a mess.

That's very disappointing since I think War Thunder was the first game I managed to run back in 2013 when I've started my switch to linux.

Beyond All Reason aims to revive the RTS style of Total Annihilation

Quoting: FerroTiC
Quoting: Lord_PhoenixI've been trying various tricks over last month, but I can't make it work in my Fedora setup. :( Looks amazing thought.
Me too. I am unable to start the BYAR on my Fedora 33 setup.

it is giving me lots of errors:
 
Problem with the SSL CA cert (path? access rights?)
Error in curl Problem with the SSL CA cert (path? access rights?) (error setting certificate verify locations:
  CAfile: /etc/ssl/certs/ca-certificates.crt
  CApath: /etc/ssl/certs)

Perhaps again the infamous libcurl vs libcurl-gnutls problem.

I guess so, but I was dissecting the json with file list and downloaded and unpacked all the files and even got the main screen to load only to be presented that game:something not found...

Quoting: cdnr1Zero-k on steam is also a realy good one
Agree, I have 80h already in Zero-K, works great with Proton, although it's a slightly different look at TA universe.

Classic 3D RTS 'Machines: Wired for War' goes open source under the GPL

Wow, that was one of my favourite games growing up. I even made a windows sound scheme based on in-game sounds :)

Serfs is a new in-development medieval RTS that looks promising, it just added Linux support

Looks great and feels like good old Settlers. Downloaded Linux demo from the website and it just worked on my Fedora 32, so looks very promising, gonna keep an eye on it.

Vampire: The Masquerade - Coteries of New York for Linux is now uncertain
12 December 2019 at 7:54 pm UTC

Quoting: TheSyldat
Quoting: Lord_PhoenixI don't know, to be honest, this is barely a mobile game, so will anyone miss it if it won't make it to the platform?
How about you learn to keep your " Gamer™ " snobism to yourself.

Visual Novels are enjoyed by lots of people and are functionally video games versions of a Choose Your Own Adventure book.
Not everything needs to be "for you" you know ...

And yes if they indeed decide to ninja smoke bomb away from porting it on Linux this game will be missed by some.

I know I'll miss it, was very much looking forward to play it.

I was actually genuinely asking and was not trying to sound like a snob. It's obviously a personal preference and I guess I never considered myself as a fan of interactive novels. Again, *maybe* on a mobile platform, but not a desktop/laptop. Good to know there is a market for this type of games.
