Imperium Galactica II: Alliances released for Linux & SteamOS, seems native too
20 January 2017 at 8:30 am UTC

The game doesn't seem to load directly from Steam. If you run ig2 from the installation dir, that seems to work fine. Comes with on steam.

So far so good (as long a you run it from console :-/)

There is an Android version of this game, so I wonder how much work done there helped. I love this game and im super happy about this.

Time to buy again and I'll update the wine appdb page for this game about native version.

Ubuntu now has a community-built PPA for stable versions of Mesa

what I need to do is trace down xorg 1.19 so I can test those optimus changes properly, saying that though, time to get my Gentoo install working, back before UEFI it was easy, now it's just complicated!

I do miss Gentoo, hello darkness my old friend...

Feral Interactive's Linux ports may come with Vulkan sooner than we thought (UPDATED)
28 October 2016 at 10:09 am UTC

LinasBit off-topic, sorry, but can anyone give me any pointers on how to use Vulkan on an Optimus laptop? I currently rely on Bumblebee, but it does not seem to support Vulkan.

As a fellow optimus user I ditched bumblebee about 6mths ago. It's unsupported and extremely fragile, got annoyed trying to get it working whenever it broke which was often.

Using nvidia Prime is much easier imho, you're either gaming or "working" so trivial to jump between the modes.

The 'SMACH Z' gaming handheld is back on Kickstarter, no longer using SteamOS but their own Linux version

I'm very very tempted. It is pricey and I've already got a Pyra on pre-order (should do an update on that one soon perhaps), but yeah, EU4 on the go? I'd like more storage tbh, expandable storage shouldn't have been hard to add, you don't exactly need stupid performance for some games on the go, and memory cards are fairly cheap.

The amount of games I could play on this... Ah yeah, how much is that worth! I'm debating.

What have you been playing recently, and what do you think?

EU4, I didn't play the last DLC at all, so that plus "Rights of Man" is a good bit different from last time I played, having a blast.

AI personalities make it much more unique experience. Fantastic game, if i had to have just one game locked in a room, it would be this one.

Should just give Paradox my CC number and take the amount they want out of it, everything they've ever made that includes Linux support I've purchased.

Be good for the 1.3 patch to come out, look forward to picking this up again. Crusader Kings 2 after The reapers due is amazing fun as well.

Go Paradox!

EVERSPACE, the amazing looking space shooter should be on Linux before the end of September

MyeulCI however miss evochron mercenary's newtonian accuracy.

I'd love a reboot of original Linux game "Terminus", good Earth vs Mars proper physics. Not even sure the old game works on current systems, might have to dig it out.

The Signal From Tölva is the next game from Sir, You Are Being Hunted developers and Linux is likely

Bit random this but not often you see an Icelandic word in a game. (Tölva = Number Prophetess == computer)

The curious tale of vanishing Linux & SteamOS ports, a status on a few of them

Everyone forgetting the day one promise (day one of official Steam on Linux launch iirc), of Rome 2 Total War? I held off playing that until the port came out.

Any day now right .

/me goes back to Stellaris.
