Humble has a pretty good Game Development book bundle
18 September 2018 at 8:09 pm UTC

The best way to describe the quality of Packt books is inconsistent. Really most books that try to teach Programming through some game engine seem unfocused and superficial, since they're really trying to teach 2 in 1(The engine and the language)

callciferMass Effect: Andromeda. I've been holding off on this due to horrendous first impressions from people whose opinion I respect, but out of sheer boredom (and longing for the original trilogy) I've decided to give it a shot. 4-5 hours in, the game is... ok, I guess. It doesn't have that Mass Effect soul but it's not completely horrible either.

This is also my first experience with Lutris + DXVK and I have to admit, everything runs perfectly. 1440p resolution, everything on ultra and I get 70/130 min/max fps, with the average around ~90. Absolutely amazing!
I never really got the negativity. The game itself is quite good, i really liked the combat. The story is rather nonsensical, but i haven't liked any of the stories since the original ME. Both ME2 and 3 had big plot holes. ME3 made all the choices you made earlier pretty much inconsequential just to shorten development time. EA sucks

Mostly CS:GO, might pick up Ballistic Overkill as well. Been thinking about checking it out for a while

OpenGL to be deprecated in the next macOS release, could mean interesting things for Linux gaming
4 June 2018 at 10:48 pm UTC

Apple have been trying really hard these past few years to damage MacOS with their decisions regarding software, hardware design choices and even complete lack of new hardware for certain sectors. They could very well become one of those companies that crash really hard

Honestly this seems to me to be the social hivemind at work here. It makes sense to complain about the price, but these games get continued support for years and a lot of the features are actually free. I does annoy me that they separated the cosmetic stuff and are selling it as another DLC. They also could do more to help with how people perceive the DLC strategy by making some of the very old DLC part of the base game for new purchases(Though I'm sure that would annoy some ppl as well). They have made an effort in that direction by grouping some older DLCs together now.

Imperator Rome takes place in a really interesting period, but i feel it will be hard to model properly. Hopefully they can pull it off, while making Rome, Carthage, the Greek states and the various tribes different and fun to play. The existence of Imperator Rome probably means Vic 3 is of the table for a while

Total War Saga: Thrones of Britannia to be on Linux "one to two months" after the Windows release

officerniceFantastic news! Feral do some amazing ports. Wish they'd do Red Orchestra 2/Rising Storm and Rising Storm 2.

Dont think it is very likely Tripwire are a small indie studio I think they would need to be convinced on the numbers before they paid for a port and it would need cross multi player as there really arent that many people playing those games on windows. DOI seems to of taken most of people that play RO2.

I don't like DOI. Feels a far cry from what Insurgency was. The problem with Tripwire is they claimed a huge love for Linux a few years back but it was all mouth.
Iirc correctly the linux guy/guys at the company left sometime before the RO2 release. They tried outsourcing a port at some point, but that didn't result in something tangible.

The Anti-SJW crowd is as tiresome as the SJW crowd. Can we just get back to playing games
