Best Linux Games Podcast: Episodes

Sunday, October 2, 2022 - 8:56pm

This week, we take a moment to mark the 5th anniversary of the October 1st shootings here in Vegas, as well as take a sec to marvel at the sheer destruction of Hurricane Ian in FL. Then! We hit you with the sidescrolling, totally insane, spider-driven multiplayer action of "SPIDERHECK," introduce you to 2 of your new best-loved female badasses in "Soulstice," and then explode your face off with our full review of the gloriously off the hook arcade demo-derby racing hybrid, "TRAIL OUT!"

This week, we take the show entirely off the rails and into the bizarre, maudlin, pain-powered hallucinogenic realm of incomprehensible babbling about "No Man's Sky" and other points ephemeral. NEXT WEEK: TRAIL OUT reviewed, "Soulstice," and moar. For NOW, though... this insane meltdown of an episode.

This week, in spite of losing our two front teeth, we bring you glorious games (I"Judgement," "Freedom Planet 2") AND we teach you how to run Windows executables through proton and Steam client (as opposed to having to break out a wine prefix and stuff). Oh... and then we teach you to mod "Marvel's Spider-Man Remastered" so you can play as Kermit the Frog! AND MOAR!

This week, we stand in awe of H.M.Q., Liz II's passing. And then, in this quiet eye of solemnity, EXPLODE YOUR FACE OFF with our first 6.5 hours of play with "TRAIL OUT." Not only does the game have one of the worst titles in history (it's a wreckfest-meets-Burnout racing explode-a-gain-za of insane crashes, selective physics, and deliciously mindless action), but is DELIGHTFULLY, totally out of control, as to make its retro elements seem new again. ALL THIS AND MOAR!

This week, we talk about the free to play insane sidescrolling multiplayer fighter, "MultiVersus," where bizarre combinations of characters from the WB catalog engage in surreal and hilarious brawls, and also talk about the recent updates to "Hellish Quart." Finally, we hit you with a modest proposal to drastically improve the end user experience playing games through the Steam Client - and is a solution that requires absolutely zero dollars, time, or resources to implement.
