What games are you playing?

I’m currently playing a fun game which is called “Build an optimised version of clang and use that to build another otherly optimised clang” :slight_smile:

Seriously though, although I have a lot of games (Steam mostly, and a few from GOG), I always come back to the same 3 or 4 games: EU IV, Ravenfield and lately Beam.NG (until it crashes).

going further down, I see an error:

No problems here, started the game from the menu in GNOME

Tremulous

Best game ever! Too bad it’s nearly dead; but there still is a full server on most evenings though.

These videos could be a good resource for setting up GE protontricks:

Haven’t watched these videos. But have watched their videos on protontricks and launch options in general.

It’s pretty easy to use the Glorious Eggroll proton.

Installation

Manual

Native

This section is for those that use the native version of Steam.

  1. Download a release from the Releases page.
  2. Create a ~/.steam/root/compatibilitytools.d directory if it does not exist.
  3. Extract the release tarball into ~/.steam/root/compatibilitytools.d/ .
  4. Restart Steam.
  5. Enable proton-ge-custom

You can either enable it for all Steam games by changing the Steam play settings, or enable it for individual games from their properties page.

Personally I buy only from steam due to their linux support.

I’m the opposite. I don’t like gaming on consoles. I did try and play The Witcher 3 on my PS4, but I prefer playing games on my PC as I just find it easier using keyboard and mouse.

Yup one of my favourites I still haven’t completed it as I don’t want it to end :see_no_evil:

I have a Wii U, PS4 and PC.

Wii U since it was hackable and I’m a sucker for Nintendo IP, plus I have a 5 year old.
PS4 because there are some Sony exclusives I can’t live without.
PC because it’s more powerful than consoles for the majority of the console generation plus backward compatibility.

Same here. It can be fun with friends though. Last time I played on a console was more than 10 years ago, playing a Pro Evo Soccer tournament :wink:

Last console i had was PS2 which is super cool to me still, with some exclusives like The Warriors :slight_smile:

But to me PC gaming will be always better for one single reason - you can mod, config, hack anything you want! :partying_face:

P.S. @dodgypast thx, that’s cool small guide :slight_smile:

Yeah I have a wii u, but I don’t like playing it. Only game I completed on there was AC3.

I loved the Wii though and agree with you @anon31687413 that consoles can be great for competitive gaming. Me and my sisters were always playing Wii Sports & Mario Kart against each other. :joy::joy:

I am considering getting the switch though for Mario Kart. And pokemon sword or shield (Not sure which I’d buy first)

What does this add to steam? Can it play windooze games on steam on Linux?

yes.

Wii Sports was fantastic. Especially bowling. Tons of fun, and one broken TV :slight_smile:

I wonder if anyone here have tried Half-Life: Alyx with their new steam gear?

My friend from Berlin who’s really into VR stuff as dev and gamer said it was mind-blowing experience :exploding_head:

This is why I dual boot, I don’t like fighting to get a game to work.
I still play games and do testing on Linux though.
One day when gaming becomes smooth on Linux I’ll convert 100%.

But isn’t dual-boot itself a fight of some sort?
I gave up on it because I found it terribly annoying.
