WW2 Co-op FPS Projekt Z shows off more impressive progress

The survival mode looks like a complete clone of CoD:WaW zombies, and it's exactly what I've been looking for recently. I can't wait to give this game a try. Hoping for some Kevin Sherwood-style soundtracks sprinkled in there as well.

Valve looking to drop support for Ubuntu 19.10 and up due to Canonical's 32bit decision (updated)

I hope they do pick a different officially supported distro, as this will break the majority of people's Steam libraries. I'll switch my gaming system to whichever distro they officially support next.
Maybe this will result in more software and games being 64-bit, which could be a good thing, but it kinda makes Ubuntu useless for most people.

Valve have detailed some changes coming to Steam in an overview post

I am particularly excited about the Steam library overhaul. I wonder if they will be updating the look of the client as a whole, or if this is the same situation as with the chat window.
Hopefully they'll improve the startup time as well in the near future, as it is currently my biggest problem with Steam.

132 of the 250 most highly rated games on Steam support Linux, even more when counting Steam Play

QuoteThere could be even more there, some titles on ProtonDB didn’t have enough reports to have a rating. I’m still surprised DOOM only has a “Gold” rating there, as it’s basically flawless for me outside of one windowing issue that was solved with a simple ALT+Enter to re-do the fullscreen.

How regular is ProtonDB being updated? There have been some updates (like the now working Multiplayer) since the first ratings...
In my experience, it only takes a day or two for them to include your report.

This is something that I'll probably never use, but it's nice that they're supporting Linux now.

Quoting: UserwithanameIs it really worth using a version of Proton that's frozen in time just to get the store to claim that it's built for Linux? It just makes it seem like the game has Linux support when it really doesn't. It's odd that the developers now have to choose between better Proton support and a Linux/SteamOS logo on their store page.
Well, it's also about control isn't it and stability. If they get a version that works and works well, then ideally you want that to stick don't you. You don't want random updates to Steam Play to come along and break it a couple times a year.
Yes, but on the other hand, what if the version of Proton they use becomes incompatible with Steam in the future? Then they will be in the exact same situation.

Valve officially confirm a new version of 'Steam Play' which includes a modified version of Wine

A Valve turns, and from the powerful release of Steam, the Windows shatter.

... it sounded better in my head...

Valve may be adding support for using compatibility tools for playing games on different operating systems

I do hope this becomes a thing. I always feel a slight sense of guilt when starting up my Wine Steam install, knowing that Valve is keeping track of the OS it is running on. I'm not getting hyped just yet tho.

Psychological horror 'Lust for Darkness' is coming to Linux, developers want to see demand for it

Nice, we need more good horror games on Linux (assuming this one is good).
