I loved the first one and I'm letting you know that I can't wait to try the second one, hence I am very clearly entering this giveaway!

314 Arts announce Projekt Z, an upcoming free co-op zombie shooter
27 August 2020 at 3:10 am UTC

Quoting: Justin_MierschHey Linux Community,
I'm one of the devs to clarify a few things! :)

In the video, we said that the Weapon Jam is random "for now" because we need a bit more time to add more features in this direction. But I'm here to tell you how it will work in the future.

We also teased the Player Hub a bit, which is very complex and I cannot talk about it right now but the Hub alone could be a game itself :) Inside the Hub, you can craft better ammo types, etc. so it depends on the ammo you are using how many jams you will get. The Player will have unlimited default ammo (This ammo is more prone to jam), the craftable ammo is limited by your "building materials" you can find that on the maps/missions. (You can build a lot of cool stuff with "building materials")

I hope you like that! :)

Best,
Justin (cottbus99)

Nice reading that, keep up the great work, your game looks really promising. But I'm still willing to bet a pint that randomly jamming weapons won't make the final cut in the game! (Or that another mechanic will make it irrelevant, say, that non-jamming ammo will be so easy to get that it will be a non-issue)

Wow, weapons will randomly jam. What a nice feature, I always wanted to get killed in a game because my weapon jammed, sounds like so much fun! (Not.)

More seriously, they seems to want to make an ultra realistic game, which is fine. Their choice of weapons so far looks great, I like weapons from the 40s-60s. But I'm willing to bet that randomly jamming weapon won't make it into the final game.

g000h: The extracted archive is 347 megs (rc3).

I will express my love for this game again. I barely play anything else anymore haha. If you guys want to get started playing online, I'm on the official test server (chrometech.at), contact me there and I'll help you find a nice spot to settle in.

Glad to read this! And thanks to the big donor that contributed so much a week back to help make sure this would get funded!

Sorting the mess of vendor specific lighting apps, OpenRGB has a new release

Saved me from going mad when I bought the cheapest available 3600 2 sticks 32gb G Skill kit last year. I didn't think that the RGB lights would be a problem, I thought they would be off by default, or that maybe they could be turned off in the bios. Wrong wrong wrong. It was a f*ing ultra bright rainbow changing color all the time. It would light up my entire room shinning through every vent in my case. Worse, it would even stay lit when the box went to sleep. It was just crazy. It took me a while to finally find OpenRGB, but now those leds are off and my sanity is back to normal.

WW1 top-down survival horror 'CONSCRIPT' gets a Kickstarter extension

The theme alone makes it worthwhile in my opinion. Kickstarted it without even trying the demo, but I did attend the first dev stream afterwards and he seems like a nice guy dedicated to his game. I really hope this gets funded!

Quoting: TcheyI’m saying it everytime it pops on GoL, but Vintage Story is still the best of its kind.

Oh yes! I'm still totally addicted to this game too. Been spending way too much time on the official public test server haha.

Only new game since last time is Streets of Rage 4, works very well in proton and with remote steam play together. Otherwise still wasting most of my free time in Vintage Story.

AMD detail future plans for socket AM4 and Zen 3 compatibility, no Zen 3 for older chipsets

Ouch, that's a bummer. I have a B450 and was planning to swap my r5 2400g for a zen 3 r7 in order to have a long lasting computer. I might have to skip this generation and get zen 4 or zen 5 instead.
