The Jackbox Party Pack 7 is out now along with a big Jackbox sale

Quoting: dpanter

All the Jackbox games require always-online internet connection. Not even kidding... your choice if that's an issue or not.

Are you serious? I was considering buying this, since I really like Champ’d Up mode, but this is a dealbreaker.

Quoting: mirvI mean I get it, all your games managed in one place.

If this is the desire, wouldn't one be able to achieve such thing using Lutris?

Quoting: WorMzyI'd be happy to pay $10 if it went up for sale on Steam. I'm not sure I buy into the whole "doing so now would also mean abandoning commitments" argument against that, unless keeping the game up-to-date on two (or more) platforms is unviable, and putting the game on Steam would mean having to remove the game from Itch. It reads more like Cheese doesn't want to put the game on Steam due to stubbornness, which is perfectly fine -- it's stubbornness on my part stopping me buying the game on Itch after all.

Stubborness with arguments = commitment
Stubborness without arguments = stupidity

For controversial topics, I would like a discussion between two civilised people, who have opposing opinions on the topic: Is Proton good or detrimental for Linux gaming.
This is the one topic I see spurring up the most heated discussions on GamingOnLinux.

Steam Play Proton 5.13-1 Linux compatibility layer up and ready for testing

Quoting: VavooonAlso wondering whether RDR2 works.

BTW this release also includes fix for flickering textures in Just Cause 3 so it's also playable now.

Checked protondb today and it seems it works very well now, without any tweaking (aside from having to kill rdr2.exe process before starting the game):

Lovely game. If only they make the controls more controller friendly..

Game looks good, but I would feel a bit guilty about buying this, instead of giving yet more support to SuperTuxKart.

The animation style gives me Battle Chef vibes. I doubt it's as good, but still.. Might check it out at some point.
