What are you playing on Linux this weekend and what do you think about it?

I started a new farm in Stardew Valley 1.3 beta. I "cheated" a little on day 1 by bringing in 3 people to use their energy and parsnip seeds, and a little on day 2-4 to have one of them water the crops for me, but playing two or more characters at the same time is inconvenient because it doesn't autopause in inventory any more, and I am not able to play two at a time better than having one do nothing until I let the other do nothing.

Thinking about multiplayer with other people, but the host is the only one to keep the savegame so I don't want to play with total strangers.

It takes less time and effort to build a relatively decent vessel so I approve of these changes.

I will probably upgrade my laptop to ubuntu 18.04 soon. It currently runs 16.04 with awesome for work and i3 for entertainment.

Doktor_MandrakeRecently on Rise of the Tomb Raider I actually had a hardlock up from it and couldn't even use CTRL-Alt-F4 and had to hard reboot :-\ only game thats done that every other one has been a matter of alt-tab and using system monitor to kill the process
This is a game specific bug I think. If you happen to be on Nvidia and aren't using the latest beta driver, you'll have all kinds of weird problems. I played quite happily with 390.48 for a good while, but finally had to cave and install 396.18 again just to play this one game without (rare) crashes and outrageous memory leaks leading to swapping and stuttering. Too bad the beta driver is worse for almost anything else, even if I force the old shader compiler.
I've had to reboot once with 396.18, but at least the power button accepted short press for safe shutdown. I do hope nvidia releases a new stable soon so I can go back to the stable branch.

Rise of the Tomb Raider is now officially available on Linux, here’s a look at it with benchmarks

One of my friends bought this game for PS4 and I have to say that this game look better on very high on my linux computer than on PS4. The faces of people doesn't look too realistic, but even if they look like plastic I still find them quite pretty. The game generally looks better on my computer than on the screenshots in this post, but maybe that is because it is video and not static images.

I don't really care if it is the prettiest game on linux or not, the game is fun, and the graphics is pretty. I recommend this game.

This game is super pretty on very high preset graphics, and it runs great on my computer at the same time I like that in a game.

You can setup sudo to work without password for certain commands even if they are written in bash. I prefer that over setuid.
