Valve have released a new Steam Beta Client with a richer Discord-like chat interface

MayeulCWeren't all hats in the same, tabbed window already? I found this "feature annoying".
Yes. You could also already disable that feature, if you found it annoying.

Valve are easing up on what content is allowed on Steam

LeonardKAlso many people criticized Valve for their Greenlight project because it had not enough curation. This is another restriction gone, which will mean many low-quality games might try get on there and make it difficult to find anything.
Content standards and quality standards are two completely different things. Banning anime tits isn't gonna do anything to stop asset flips.

Looks like Nightdive Studios enhanced version of 'Turok' might be coming to Linux (update: it's out!)

MayeulCNice, I liked Turok: Evolution on Xbox back in the day. But I am a bit lost with the timeline... Or the series. I would like to play Evolution again, but did it see a PC release as well?

It is always strange to realize that the games I played when I was younger actually had a "story".
Evolution comes first chronologically, followed by 1, 2, and 3. 1 and Evolution both star Tal'Set as Turok. 2 stars Joshua Fireseed, several generations later. 3 is a direct followup, and centers on Joshua's siblings, Joseph and Danielle.

There was a PC version of Evolution, but I think it was only released in Europe. The remasters are built on a whole new engine, though, so I'm not sure existing PC versions are really a requirement for consideration. I'm hoping we get the whole series eventually.

Finally! I no longer need to use Wine for my most-played game.

No editor/mod loader (and so no workshop support), but standalone mods work. Some of us provide standalone download links on our workshop pages, or you can check turokforums.com or turoksanctum.com.

Valve seem to be tightening their rules on games with sexual content

devnull"Henti" on DDG returns one single, rather vague result from Wikipedia about some Queen.
That's because it's spelled "hentai" (which DDG will actually suggest, but only if safe search is off).

WarpigIt's because pedophilia is a huge problem right now...world wide. Did you see the news about the bishops in Chile? They all resigned over sex abuse. Maybe your not paying attention...There is an elite pedophilia ring that traffics children for sex and then engages in organ harvesting.
And I'm sure they all got the idea from playing HuniePop.

GOG now have the Linux version of retro-inspired FPS STRAFE: Millennium Edition
26 April 2018 at 7:45 pm UTC

Wasn't the pre-order bonus for this game just a gag weapon that instantly ends the game in victory when fired? Not really something to fuss about missing out on, I think.

The Linux version of RUINER is now on GOG, with 50% off

They came through! And half off to boot? I'm sold.

RUINER is now in Beta for Linux, it's also an early unlock in the new Humble Monthly

Doktor_MandrakeI can understand why this game isn't available on GOG atm, afterall it is in Beta

Sure, I don't expect beta versions on GOG, but they make it sound like they don't plan to release on GOG at all. I know GOG does their own testing, but it seems to like as long as they've done the work of porting the game, they might as well at least submit it and give it a chance to pass or not on its own merits.

The game's already on GOG. Why would adding the Linux version there not be a given?

I don't want to be too harsh -- I am thankful that we're getting a Linux version at all -- but between this and the previous inconsistent communication on Linux support, it feels like we're always pulling teeth with this dev.
