Kinda sad.
Was hoping to buy this for X-mas sale for my mates , but if it's broken and I can't play with them , then ... oh well.

Hey if the dev is willing to compile at 4am , I am willing to buy their game

Bystander, a game that looks similar to Papers, Please adds Linux support

I kinda agree with some people here. Looks almost TOO similar to Papers please.
And without any of the people we saw in Papers Please it feels too disconnected. I have no reason to care about any of those messages. Feel ... detached.

Battle simulation game where you create units 'Hyper Knights: Battles' is now out
12 December 2017 at 1:15 pm UTC

So like that Ultimate Battle Simulator but 2D and on Linux ?
SOLD


EDIT : Damnit . I should have read the article and not commented after just seeing the trailer. If it is as limited as suggested in the review that puts me on the fence.

Open source game engine 'OpenMW' for Morrowind has been updated

dvdI should play it already! I consider TES to be in my top 5 favorite games. Unfortunately, i have never played through morrowind before, but with OpenMW and OpenCS going strong, i think it is high time to do that, also discover the mods (and maybe try a bit of modding). It's really awesome how some developers manage to give a new life to old classics.

You should give it a go. It's a different experience to what came after.
I started on Oblivion and then played Skyrim before going back to Morrowind.
The experience is much more deep and it does little hand holding. Just be prepared to read a lot and deal with a VERY unwieldy journal.

I played them in the same order. I played way more Oblivion though, i kept playing that even after playing Skyrim, to me it always felt like skyrim was mainly a graphical upgrade, which was great for the item mods, but the whole system of play seemed like a dumbed down version of Oblivions. I still feel like it would've been a fuller experience if they integrated perks/new skills into the existing system.

The little i tried from Morrowind in openmw, i liked it, and the fact that lots of mods are now compatible with it makes playing it all the more desirable.

I agree about the assassin/archer combo got way more powerful, especially after Oblivion, in which they were practically useless. The reverse happened to mages, they were enjoyable in Oblivion, but it got worse in Skyrim, where the master spells with their stationary animations are more a hinderance than help. I heard that the new Creation Club idea backfired as well (disclaimer: i haven't actually played skyrim in the last 5 years or so, nor plan on it unless a port magically happens)

I usually go for a big stupid brutish fighter on my first playthroughs on most Elder Scrolls games and it works out rather ok-ish. I can still be slaughtered by an enemy that's too powerful or if I lack enough skills. Sadly I end up just doing the quests in Oblivion and NEVER feeling the itch to explore.

One recommendation I do have are the sureAI team who make huge overhauls for the Elder Scrolls games. New continents, new combat systems etc. Feels like a new game made in same engine at times.
I highly recommend Nehrim and Enderal. Both fully voiced (though the former only in German) and with really good stories.

I think Liam is super grateful for the "save anywhere" feature.

And on the topic of episodes , when Samsai played it earlier this year it only had episode 1. I can wait .
Kentuky Route Zero STILL isn't done as far as i know.
