Does EVERSPACE have VR and HOTAS / other flightstick support on Linux? That's something I'd love to experience!
Stardew is a great game, glad you're enjoying that. I agree that the multiplayer implementation isn't perfect, but it's impressive and adds a lot to tthe game for what it is currently. I should go take a look at your Stardew streams (if I'm awake), they sound fun.
Glad you're enjoying ToME! I do like playing some classical/traditional roguelikes too, but mostly those that are more dungeon-based, less focus on skill trees and stats. Speaking of which Hex, have you heard of *Stoneshard: Prologue* ? It's a teaser build of a Kickstarted classical roguelike with pixel art, freeform progression and an established overworld, definitely worth a try!
I quite liked this type of video, in particular because it points out details in games you may not have mentioned in your 'first look / impressions' videos (see Slipstream). I'd personally be glad to see a "Games I'm playing" video every over month / monthly, depending on how frequently your recreational tastes change...ultimately, it's your call of course. :D
My only issue with gaming on linux is that you will most likely need to upgrade your graphics card to play newer DX11 games. I use an old hd 7950 and there is no amdgpu-pro driver for that line of graphics cards. Overwatch is pretty much impossible to run
greekgod ice nothing to do with the install. It's my motherboard. It wont automatically locate Linux boot loaders. You can flag the boot partition however you want; the grubx64.efi is in limbo until you manually locate it. Avoid the 990fx sabertooth board unless you are exclusively running Windows.
greekgod ice I do, but it's a pain in the ass. I keep my linux hard drive unplugged because windows messes with it. Every time I want to use linux after booting windows I have to manually locate the bootloader with a bootable thumbdrive using efibootmgr. It makes switching OS's a pain
I've been a Linux user on my laptop since 2009. However, I just recently turned my gaming machine into a Linux machine. I've had no problems playing Fallout 3, Elder Scrolls Online, and Enclave via Wine through Lutris. As far as Linux native games, I play Wasteland 2, Dex, Saint's Row 4, A Bard's Tale, NightSky, Strike Suit Zero... at this point, Steam, Wine, and the Vulkan libraries are so robust, you can play 95% of games no matter the platform. I'm sad Wine doesn't work for a few games (like Wildlands), but if you despise Telemetry and recent Windows f'kery as much as I do, it's worth at least dual-booting, and giving yourself at least a solid month of figuring out the Linux way of doing things. I now have a Netflix/Kodi/gaming/editing machine with a wireless 360 controller on a 10-foot projector screen with a 5.1 sound system. I've got crossover points, audio compression, tear-free desktop, mouse&keyboard emulation, native 360 gamepad support... there's just no real need for Windows anymore. I edit 3D and video in Blender, I edit photos in GIMP, I capture with OBS... the list of great things is a mile long.
Tales of Maj'Eyal is excellent. It's a game I play often at night for about 20 to 30 mins before going to bed because my wife likes the music and I love to here her read the lore to me. Excellent well crafted game that need more support and coverage. I may give Overwatch a try. I really hope it's easy to install because I have very little patience for WINE games.
I think it's a good idea to make videos like these once in a while, to recap what you've been playing recently, (and explaining what you've been enjoying or not). A really good idea. Especially since you take the time and effort to illustrate games you're talking about with recorded videos of them.
Regarding StarDew Valley, perhaps you should try some more Don't Starve Together ( https://store.steampowered.com/app/322330/Dont_Starve_Together/ ). They're releasing new stuffs these days too.
Hey man, would you consider, with all of this craziness going around, doing another, more up-to-date, ship-jumping guide to open source or better alternatives to services/programs/apps? I was just thinking about this the other day, and I wasn't sure how relevant your other guides are still, so thought I'd ask.
