Proton GE gets some big updates but you may need to remove old Wine prefixes
15 May 2021 at 12:55 pm UTC

To make a little advertisement: I've created a small gui helper to download and install different versions from GE and TKG - maybe some will find that usefull, as well :)

Quake II RTX patched to expand the Vulkan Ray Tracing support

i just tried it (because my rdna2 came in today ^^) and had no luck

QuoteHonestly it amazes me companies, bigger ones especially, don't see how these projects can benefit them and instead send the lawyers

yeah, i really don't get how dense you have to be to decide "i'd rather take a shitstorm and damage my reputation with the fanbase instead of free advertisement to keep the IP relevant and maybe even some sales from very old games"...

Valheim gets a small patch with a large creature visual overhaul
12 May 2021 at 11:10 am UTC

i must say i'm kinda disappointed by the pretty slow dev-speed. Sure, being rich overnight doesn't hire new devs immediately, but the changes since "release" are really not much, even for a small team...

Humble Bundle plan to put the much loved sliders back on bundle pages

Without sliders, there would be no way to put the money towards the linux-native devs, so i very much appreciate them ^^

Wolfire Games filed a lawsuit against Valve over abuse of their market position
1 May 2021 at 8:24 am UTC

They are very welcomed to go back to the time before steam and get 80%-90% taken away by publishers and retailers...

The fact alone that they state the (free!) key provisions as a tool to suppress cheaper stores is laughable.

I really hope this will be rejected by court...

ΔV: Rings of Saturn now gives the full game in the demo, with one catch
17 April 2021 at 9:18 am UTC

That sounds like a good approach for a demo!
I'll have to give it another go then, tried the demo when it first came out and couldn't really get me hyped despite the setting sounding pretty neat to me ^^

Metro Exodus from 4A and Deep Silver has officially released for Linux
15 April 2021 at 8:24 am UTC

i really loved the books and the other Metro games, so i'd be happy to get a key :D

after the EGS-desaster i really hadn't have much hope that they would release this for linux, so its a really pleasant surprise that they did after all - might make up for the fact that they sold themselfs to the devil in making their game exclusive ^^

Looks like Narita Boy from Studio Koba will now not be supported on Linux

Douchebag moves like this drove people like me away from crowdfunding - so good job in making future indie titles less likely to succeed!

To celebrate one year, Half-Life: Alyx is the cheapest it's ever been

Seeing how utterly amazing the experience of alyx was, i really really hope, they stick to VR for the next games, too. There are more than enough great flat games, it would be a shame to limit their genius because not everybody has a headset yet ^^
