Manjaro levels up as a serious Linux distribution
8 September 2019 at 11:52 pm UTC

Oh boy. And I was wondering, few days ago, about the fate of Manjaro since I noticed it was taking way too long to receive stable updates (and now I see DeaDBeeF jumping from 0.8 to 1.8).

Glad I'm not going back to distro hopping anytime soon.

The emulation and media player front-end RetroArch just had a huge new release

NezchanSo far, the difficult, frustrating experience I've come to expect from RetroArch.

Games probably weren't recognized cuz you didn't download the databases, so the scanner is "blind". About the default hidden core updater, it's really a Linux-specific thing. And if you still get a black screen after that, it's probably cuz missing BIOS (and that's a whole legal issue).

Anyway, for those looking for a simpler and yet powerful alternative, there's Ludo:

Bird by Example is quite possibly the weirdest game I've played in a long time

That's how games like Katamari Damacy are born.

Either the being behind this is insane or a genius.

The Expression Amrilato, a Yuri Visual Novel that teaches some Esperanto has a same-day Linux release on GOG

Started to learn Esperanto after failing hard at Japanese, since I read somewhere Esperanto could help while learning other languages.

Somehow the little I learned about Japanese began to make more sense after a while, even without studying or practicing for months.

Now, seeing both languages in a game is awesome. I have to play this even though it's not my genre.

Starbound 1.4 'Bounty Hunter' update coming soon, now available for testing

14Sweet. A already own it. It's getting close to time to buy some more copies for the kiddies.
I would really wait a few months before doing that.

You see, the game pretty much has been abandoned for some months cuz Wargroove development.

This update wasn't even supposed to be released, since they said a year ago that the whole bounty hunting system seemed to be lackluster.

Not to mention the performance problems (apparently caused by some bug?), something that the community has been complaining about for some time...

tl;dr
Games is OK, but requires attention ASAP.

Retro-inspired bloody shooter 'Prodeus' fully funded and coming to Linux

PatolaThis one seems a lot more polished than other retro games. I guess 'retro' will continue to evolve until we have 'retro' shooters that look like Battlefield V?
Yes, I think so. Then the cycle stars over again.

Pretty much like fashion or music?

Far Blade looks like a very unique 3D boss rush adventure

The graphic style reminds me more Another World to be honest.

Renaine, a gorgeous pixel-art platformer about overcoming failure is coming to Linux

I don't remember the last time I got so hyped, just cuz an OST.

I'm really curious to see my reaction, dying a lot while listening to stuff like this:
