Best Linux Games Podcast: Episodes

Saturday, February 16, 2019 - 6:46am

We take a steamy delve into the depths of what I'm currently playing in our (long-lusted-after and emminently popular) irregular segment that we like to call: "WHAT I'M PLAYING!" Big grab bag of games this week, ranging from an update on last week's featured title, "Vampyr," to "The Textorcist" (which has a free demo available and is totally worth playing), and up to (and including) "Moonlighter" (an interesting take on rogue like, Zelda-style dungeoneering). All this and MOAR!

This week: Vampyr has gone on sale (for the next 22 hours, you can get it for half off at $24.99). So first: go buy the game, then listen to our feature about it, and then play it some more. While we do our best to refrain from such hyperbole, it's hard to imagine that "Vampyr" isn't an instant classic.

This week, we explain the situation with the website (fuck you, DigitalOcean, you have failed big time), explain what's coming next for the website, and then scrub all of our intended coverage of (the EXCELLENT) "Vampyr," for a last minute major release ("Ace Combat 7," which, incidentally, runs great via Proton). All this, and more!

Sorry we are late this week, but we've had our hands full... of METAL GEAR SOLID V. So, this week, here's another hour of review time, this time focused on the Forward Operating Base mechanic, along with other major multi-player-focused elements of this magnificent title. Back next week with a HUMONGOUS announcement!

This week, we do our annual book-keeping and hit you with the show's stats for the previous year. Useful for describing the overall breadth and reach of the show, it also (frequently) subtly highlights (in the inverse) the sheer number of titles that never get mentioned on the show. See you all after AVN. Cheers!

THIS WEEK: after struggling to explain the conditions that face us over the next several weeks (with exceptional ineptitude, even by my standards), we spend basically the rest of the episode explaining to you why Hello Games should have put "No Man's Sky" on 50% sale a lot sooner than now (don't let it stop you from picking it up, though). We also offer tasty previews of the Steam Winter Sale coming soon ("Katamary Damacy REROLLED," "Insurgency: Sandstorm," "Gujiuan 3," "Dark Souls 3," etc.) and wish you all a very happy holidays and a happy new year to you and yours in case we don't speak again till 2019. Cheers!
