Quoting: wit_as_a_riddleI wish they would do pixel graphics
Me too. I loved the retro style of Thimbleweed Park. Maybe just because I grew up with games looking like that. But what I never want to go back to, is having to read all that conversation on screen. Voice-Over please :-)

Changing your country on Steam has been made harder to battle VPNs

Thats strange, I don't think this is that new. I live in germany, and I tried to buy "Dying Light" about 2 years ago (not available in steam here) via VPN and it didn't work. Steam only accepted payment from the (VPN) country I am at. I only tried payment with paypal. ( ... so I had to get the game elsewhere :-/ )

What have you been playing recently and what do you think about it?

This weekend I've been playing Dark Souls 3. I also spent a lot of time playing Cuphead via RemotePlay together with a friend and also Broforce. We had a great time, although we were pretty bad.

Yes please! I can't wait to try that out! Many great indy games only support local multiplayer ...

Some thoughts on SteamWorld Quest: Hand of Gilgamech, the deck-builder from Image & Form Games

Bought it the day of the release. It's a great game. I personally prefer it to slay the spire because its much more forgiving.
Just a hint: you can use mouse and keyboard to play the game, but as all the other Image and Form Games it seems to me, that its optimized to be played with a gamepad/controller.

Dying Light is still seeing updates years after release and my love of it continues

QuoteThis is one of the few times I will probably ever suggest running a native Linux game through Steam Play, instead of using the native Linux version as performance in Steam Play is so much better and smoother. You can see that in the previous video I did previously below.

On my setup, the native version felt a bit more smoothly.
But I stopped playing the native linux version because of a bug. When using "death from above" with bladed weapons, the game crashes (not always but 99% of the time). This is super annoying. And it seems, I'm not the only one with this problem.

I bet its a Doom 2016 and Skyrim double feature!! Isn't it?
Well, my hope is, it's something about Shadow of the Tomb Raider or Life is Strange 2.

A small update on the status of BATTLETECH for Linux

This makes me also worry about the coming 7 days to die alpha 17 ... didn't the fun pimps switch to the new version of unity too? Does it help when we send feral-marc-now-at-unity some love in form of cookies? :D
