  • Valheim - addicting as hell

  • Monster Sanctuary - fun story, easy to learn gameplay

  • Space Haven - still working my way through the tutorial but it's fun so far

  • Surviving Mars - also still in the tutorial, but it's city building on Mars, what's not to love?

  • Albion Online - it's a damn love-hate relationship with this game for years


Valve to lose $4 million for patent infringement with the Steam Controller

Quoting: BeamboomThere's just something about a physical stick that can't be replaced with a touchpad.

My thoughts as well. The touchpad can be nice for a casual game, but trying to move or turn with it quickly and accurately in an intense boss fight (say for example Dark Souls 3, or Hellpoint) is impossible.

Mad Max and Shadow of Mordor delisted for Linux and macOS on Steam

Quoting: pbweird that they didn't do a farewell sale at the Feral Store for example.

A sale for something they're about to drop support for? Would you buy a car on sale that is about to be discontinued and does not come with a warranty?

QuoteWith OpenGL and Vulkan the shader disk cache also saw some upgrades this time around too. The location was moved, and the default size has bumped up to 1024MB, although they mentioned that caches with paths containing "/.nv/ will continue to use the previous default of 128MB "unless the size is manually overridden".

Yes, finally! Should reduce the daily shader processing after opening the Steam client.

Is this related to the annoying "Processing Vulkan Shaders" message I keep getting on every Steam Play title?

Yes I'm almost positive it is.

System76 announce the AMD powered Pangolin with Ryzen and Radeon

I just want an AMD CPU + AMD mobile GPU

System76 bring back the Galago Pro with Intel Xe and NVIDIA GPU options

I don't need the mobility so I'll probably buy either a Gazelle or an Oryx from them within the next 6 months, but I'm really hoping they start offering AMD GPUs soon on any of their non-workstation laptops.

Another Discord voice chat overlay for Linux appears with 'Discover'

Quoting: fagnerlnIt looks interesting! The problem is that my CSGO partner can't install Discord on Windows (!?) it simply doesn't work. He used Mint for years, but jumped to Windows 10 just because of CSGO services like FaceIT, GamersClub, etc...

Has he tried the web interface? Just need to grant access to the microphone from the browser
