Its an impressive game though, at least judging from the demo.

Quoting: Eike
Quoting: XpanderGreat to see you are using Linux PC wording. Need more of that!

I couldn't start the demo, altough there is one for Linux:
They've linked an exe file (and manually starting didn't work either).
Need less of that...

ahh that's not good.
i don't really care about the game myself anyway, i was just amazed by the Linux PC wording in the title

Vintage Story - https://www.vintagestory.at - minecraft, but not minecraft. A lot more hardcore. Making a copper pickaxe for example means you have to use clay to make the cast before, then smelt the copper nuggets with thee right temperature, pour the molten copper into the cast and wait for it cool down, then craft the pickaxe head to craft the pickaxe.. Looks also nicer than Minecraft visually. runs natively on linux with mono.


Warhammer Online - wine - https://www.returnofreckoning.com - Just had a massive patch. My go to PvP MMORPG fix.

DiRT Rally 2.0 - proton - Doing my regular daily/weekly events and advancing in the career mode. Really nice rally game. Sad that its ruined a bit by so many DLC's.

Observer: System Redux should be available for Linux PC too

Quoting: yokem55This game really had a great atmosphere and story, but the narrow fov, view bobbing and light strobing really gave me a headache and some motion sickness that I _never_ get in 3d games. Not fun.

FoV was fixable via config files as well as unlocking the framerate and removing the stupid chromatic abberation.
It was then playable. View Bobbing didnt bother me after tweaking those settings.

I really liked this game. Nice to see the continued Linux support

DiRT Rally 2.0 - Since kernel 5.8 that added missing pieces to G920 kernel driver, it works now out of box with it, without the need of beramas ffbwrap tool. Runs really good also, constantly 100+ fps @1440p with vkbasalt sharpness added on top.

Warhammer Online (Return of Reckoning server) - This just my go to PvP MMORPG.

also i played a bit Surviving the Aftermath - sadly its not on steam atm, but it will eventually come there. Runs great under wine/DXVK

Quoting: XpanderBorderlands 3, because free weekend. Honestly, i have to say, this game is pretty bad. Runs okaish, looks ok, if blurs and TAA are turned off, but combat is so boring and dull. not enough feedback from guns or hits on the enemy or yourself, feels quite bland. Just cant enjoy it because of that. Lucky that it was free this weekend, so now i know i wont buy this game.

Ok adding more games:

Warhammer Online (Return of Reckoning) ... My go to PvP/RvR MMORPG fix.

Destroy All Humans Quite fun game, not that great gameplay but its funny a bit and works pretty well with wine. needs media foundation installed into prefix.

Quoting: saturnoyoI disagree. Borderlands 3 has the best gunplay of any borderlands game. Shooting weapons is much more satisfying than it was in BL2 or BL:pre-sequel. The guns have more weight to it.

It doesnt excuse the situation though. If its the best borderlands game combat wise then, i cant imagine what the old ones feel like.. For me at least the combat was the worst i ever got from Triple A game in a while.

Quoting: MohandevirJust Cause 4 and Rage 2.

Rage 2 seems impossible to play... The game keeps on crashing every 15mins or so, no natter what I try in the launch options or in the graphic settings. Not really enjoyable, even tough I like the game.

turn off async compute from the config files.
~/SteamLibrary/steamapps/compatdata/548570/pfx/drive_c/users/steamuser/Saved Games/id Software/Rage 2/settings.ini

zero crashes like that
