Heavy Rain


Maybe as a Linux gamer I'm more used to having a stack of stores/launchers for playing games - Overwatch, for instance, goes Steam->Lutris->Battle.net->Overwatch for me - so I don't really care too much about Epic's store. Also, running under WINE drastically limits their ability to steal data, too. That said, the Heavy Rain demo runs […]

Bloodstained: Lies Of The Publisher


Well, now that's quite the "middleware issue" isn't it? Seems to me the game runs just fine on Proton and Wine... And a windowed-mode desktop shot (with the game's process highlighted in system monitor) as more proof this runs just fine, but ANYONE can set this up and try it. Platinum ratings coming in on […]

Et Tu, Mue 3???


It's painful watching people sell out, especially when they're people you honestly admired and thought would be above it. After today's Epic Store Exclusivity announcement, I'm gravely disappointed in Ys.Net and Deep Silver. Someone at Kickstarter really needs to step up and start defending backers, or there won't be any backers left to defend, and […]

Lan Dilayed


Sooo Mue 3 will be another two months delayed? Keep in mind this represents a little less than 1% of the total amount of time we've all waited for Ryo to come out of the cave. Given how OTHER Kickstarters are going (HISSSSS) and my personal faith in Yu Suzuki's commitment to quality, I'd give […]

Building


Bumped CC2's memory up to 32GB so I can run a lot of containers on it. Also, I'm doing my first Proton build to fix a bug in the save function for Nelke & The Legendary Alchemists. Once I test it, I'll submit it to the project.

Great for Warframe... and other games too


GloriousEggroll has a custom Proton build with fixes for Warframe support, and updated DXVK and FAudio baked in. This build fixed issues I was having with NVidia driver updates having broken previously-working games like RE2, and it performs awesomely. Highly recommended!

Mind Games


More cheap Proton goodness! First is Call of Cthulhu: Dark Corners. It runs, but the game crashed out once, so it's not quite perfect. And then we have Mind/0, a good game but unfortunately also an obvious Persona knockoff. Runs well under Proton, but the keyboard bindings are screwy. (Z and X are the buttons […]
