Metro Exodus to get a release date for Linux "soon" say 4A Games
29 February 2020 at 8:42 am UTC

I was about to say that I'll purchase it when the Linux version is released, then other commenters reminded me that Proton counts as a Linux sale... it's so pretty... trying to resist...

I wanted to donate to the bushfire appeal somehow, and free games are just a bonus!

Steam Play Proton 4.11-10 out, mouse handling improvements and Halo: The Master Chief Collection works

Quoting: 14
Quoting: NanobangUnfortunately, 4.11-10 messed up something with Borderlands 2 for me. Whilst Nvidia reported FPS around 120, it kinda looked as if every other frame was being displayed---jumpy, not smooth. Most disconcerting was the way a frame would flash on the screen from an entirely different sequence altogether, like a menu frame while running through Sanctuary or something.

Rolling back to 4.2-9 fixed it right up. Would this sort of regression be best reported to the Proton github page, or should I just assume it'll get fixed up on a later iteration? Or maybe I'll just lock Borderlands 2 to 4.2-9 and call it good.
Does it run better under Proton or something? Borderlands 2 is a native game.

Borderlands 2 runs fine natively, but the latest DLC (Commander Lilith & the Fight for Sanctuary) does not have a Linux port.

I've been after a 4 player couch game since I discovered that Duck Game doesn't even start. This one might fit the bill nicely.

Co-op real-time strategy game A Year Of Rain for Linux is a "TOP Priority"

The Steam reviews are "mixed", but I wishlisted anyway to encourage them to release the Linux version.

Native Linux.... Spanish support... and only 2.62U$D..
I will buy it.

How come it's that price ? Says £9.89 to me
Regional pricing.

Ah, rip off Britain again, I'll blame Brexit, seems to be the thing to do. :P
Could be worse - it's AU$20 for me.

Come on. How hard is it going to be to keep your hands off this? It seems like any old prick could get it up and running.

Bad jokes, I know. Sorry. Now I feel like a jerk.

If you can't login to World of Warcraft or WoW Classic on Linux, here's a quick fix for now

I played WoW for over a decade, but thankfully managed to kick the habit before the BfA xpac was released. I've been WoW-free for a couple of years now, and holding steady!

Extreme arcade space combat game "Space Mercs" has officially released

I don't recall hearing of this, and it's not my usual genre... but it's not expensive, has day one Linux support and looks good for a casual pew pew in between other things.


The six-degree-of-freedom shooter "Overload" has a new Community Level Pack offering a fresh challenge

Nurturing fond memories of Descent 1 & 2, I bought Overload the moment it hit GoG. It's a buttery-smooth, beautiful experience, but my skills at 3DoF games just aren't what they used to be. I couldn't get my sons interested in it either, so it has been sitting collecting digital dust for months.
