I've been enjoying punching thugs and running a hostess club in Kiwami 2 which has been a lot of fun; moreso than Kiwami imo, but Yakuza 2 is also a fav of mine so.

Oh, and I've been really impressed by Sonic All Stars Racing Transformed, which I've been playing a lot of with my partner. I was pretty skeptical initially, but I'd honestly say it rivals Mario Kart for me :)

Neat, feels really fresh. I'll have to check it out ^^

Halo 2: Anniversary on Linux with Steam Play Proton, single-player works well

Super excited since I too played the hell out of this game as a kid; still remember spending way too much time finding ways to reach the rooftops of New Mombasa to look for secrets, usually to no avail :B

I got very confused by the opening cut scene with this bounty hunter guy. I assume it's related to the modern games, but I lost interest after reach; Dunno if it got too Starcraft-y or if I've just gotten too old :P

I got a sign-in error, telling me I'd need to sign into my Live account in a browser; that didn't work. But deleting <Steam-folder>/steamapps/compatdata/976730/pfx/drive_c/users/steamuser/AppData/LocalLow/MCC (The entire folder) I was able to sign in properly.

OBS Studio gains another big sponsor with Facebook

Quoting: TcheyI’m not sure what to think about all these huge corporations supporting free open source stuff (like Epic does).

I mean, you're right to be suspicious of basically anything these companies do, but the reasoning seems pretty straightforward here. Facebook has been getting into livestreaming and so they pour money into an open source livestreaming program; kinda like how Valve has invested in WINE related projects.

They are destroying the world tho. All Copperations Are Bastards, after all

Need to make some pixel art? Pixelorama is a cross-platform FOSS tool worth looking at

Ooh, I'll keep this in my back pocket. I'm into vectors right now, but I always come back to pixel art eventually :B

QuoteEpic Games have reached down the back of the sofa and pulled up enough loose change to acquire Quixel.

How much do you reckon they found? Ten Cents? :B

Failbetter Games are upgrading owners of Sunless Skies to the Sovereign Edition next year

I love Failbetter games. They always seems to struggle with mechanics, but it's easy to forgive because they make a very unique kind of game that I really like. And they always seem earnest in their attempts to improve and iron things out.

Excited for improvements to Sunless Skies, especially performance. Even more excited to see what their next project will be :)

Steam 'Remote Play Together' is now in Beta, allowing local multiplayer games over the net

Aww, misread the title and thought this was a tool to get couch co-op for online-only multiplayer games ;-; Still, I'm sure this will be good for a lot of folks; especially for those games where devs can't or won't spend the resources to support online networking.

Personally, the thought of playing voice chat with people gives me the same anxiety I get from phone calls; the lack of visual feedback really throws me. If I'm sharing a couch with someone I can always confirm they're just 'in the game' so any conversational lulls don't feel like awkward silences :B
