Valve put out another Steam Beta Client with minor Steam Play changes
19 January 2019 at 2:46 pm UTC

It just straight up wiped a lot of my games; I check the game folder and it's empty :C Fucking weak, man. I just turned off the beta, now I'm too scared to switch it back on.

Valve's card game Artifact is running very well on Linux, releasing next week

monkygamesMore gambling loot boxes. No thank you Volvo. You could have left this game off of Linux.

Initially I was going to say, 'well, it's a F2P game, so I don't see the--', but then I googled and discovered it's $20? What the hell, Valve? We know you're not short of cash, it seems rather greedy to double dip like that :/

Stoic have now removed the Linux version of The Banner Saga, in favour of Steam Play

If it runs at all with Proton it'll be a %100 improvement for me :B

Valve has expanded the Steam Play whitelist to include DARK SOULS III and plenty more

Hmm, I debate getting Nidhogg. Played it before with the missus, and while I enjoyed it immensely, she became immensely annoyed with me XD (I mean, why would they give you a throw sword button if you're not supposed to use it? )

CHANGE, a homeless survival game is in Early Access with Linux support

I'll probably wait for after EA, but I definitely can appreciate then intent. I remember being open mouthed when discussing homelessness with a co-worker who simply said "I'd just get a job until I could afford a place to stay." They eventually recanted after I pointed out how hard it would be to get and hold down a job without a reliable source of hygiene, transport, or even an address.

Said co-worker was actually a decent guy, but they were also quite privileged, which definitely affects your perspective. They ended up leaving that job altogether and got a place out of state and pursued a higher education, all on their parents dime. I'm happy their doing better now, but I'm also pretty jealous of such an opportunity

ison111Is it wrong to say that I think it would be hilarious to get an actual homeless person to play this game and film their reaction?

A little? It would be a person in a horrible situation playing a horrible situation simulator. It would be like having a war refugee play This War of Mine; probably interesting, but I don't see much humor in it.

Sunless Skies to leave Early Access on January 31st, 2019 also now out is a free pen and paper RPG system
25 September 2018 at 2:13 am UTC

Does seem like a cool dude, if not a bit anxious about public speaking :B What little I saw beforehand hadn't really impressed me, since it just looked like a re-skin of Sunless Sea. And I do have love for Sea, and it's great to see where that fantastic world building comes from, but as he says it became a slog and I just coudn't continue; which is a poor way to end a game you want to love.

So yay!

No more big circles around the map!
No more tiny log book entries!
No more stretches of empty sea! (though I wouldn't mind some little stretches)
Battles that don't devolve into backpedaling and firing in the enemies face!

This might turn out pretty good

The excellent rogue-lite 'Streets of Rogue' now actually has an ending
21 September 2018 at 2:16 pm UTC

At long last! After 57 hours of play I can finally end a playthrough without blowing up from the last teleport

I hope they do something with the traits and rewards, because I think it's too easy to rack up a bunch of chicken nuggets and buy all the things. I also think a lot of the smaller items get overshadowed too quickly in favor of getting the good stuff first. Maybe if they created challenges to complete to unlock items (e.g. Pickpocket every kind of NPC in a single run for the safe buster, blow up 100m of walls for the rocket launcher, etc.).

PlayStation 3 emulator 'RPCS3' is coming along nicely with some major improvements

Good stuff You can't stop piracy, but you can preserve history for future generations; and not just the titles the publishers deem 'worthy' of a $60 remaster.

Aspyr Media have announced a Layers of Fear and Observer bundle making them cheaper together
19 September 2018 at 2:20 am UTC

Curious about Observer, but I wasn't impressed with Layers of Fear. The "Turn around and something's happened" thing gets old after a couple hours :B
