Which linux-ready gaming titles have you snatched from the steam winter sales?
Which titles are you ready to play on your linux-powered machine, be it pc or steam deck? I'm having a blast with Death Stranding (albeit performance can be a little groggy on my dated i5-7500); I then plan on playing DOOM (2016) and Hades.

1080 TI vs Rx Vega 64 with Pop OS
I'm getting handed down either 1080TI or Rx Vega 64. 1080TI definitely has better benchmarks however how is experience of them being used on Linux (I use Pop OS)? If Rx Vega provides stable / reliable experience then I would pick that. [EDIT/UPDATE]: picked up rx vega, pretty good out of the box experience

Arcane Cache - Review blog for underground indie games
The [Arcane Cache](http://thunderperfectwitchcraft.org/arcane_cache/) reviews games that fly beyond the radar of the big gaming sites and blogs. I focus on amateur games and niche productions. Since I play exclusive with Linux, all games I review run native or with wine.

Interestingly, AMD is now more popular among Linux users than Intel.

>ScummVM allows you to play classic graphic point-and-click adventure games, text adventure games, and RPGs, as long as you already have the game data files. ScummVM replaces the executable files shipped with the games, which means you can now play your favorite games on all your favorite devices.

Nor sure why you would play games in your car, but I guess it's still good publicity for Linux.

And many more work out of the box, just not officially verified. At this point it's probably safe to assume that all games work with Linux, unless some crazy anti cheat or DRM explicitly bans Linux users.

It would be a huge win for Linux and open source if GPD ditches Windows.

Help getting Titanfall 2 to run
Hi everyone, I got tf2 during this steam sale but I have not been able to run it in my machine (Arch/amd gpu). I was hoping I could get some help from you guys The game won't event launch and my guess is that the origin client is being the problem, since it never launches, and the last line of the steam window is something like > "Installing originthinsetup.exe" I've followed this guides: Origin additional dependencies [https://github.com/lutris/docs/blob/master/Origin.md) ]() Drivers [https://github.com/lutris/docs/blob/master/Origin.md]() I've tried reinstalling the game, deliting the prefix and I've tried proton-ge but I don't know what else to do And for some reason it does run on a linux mint machine, so theres that.

The Vaults of Minos is a precision plattformer inspired by pulp adventure comics and movies and mid 90s jump'n runs. We invested a lot of time in playtesting and polishing the game to ensure good controls, a challenging but fair gameplay and an overall fluid and fun experience. The core feature of Vaults of Minos is a refined autogenerator that delivers challenging but always solvable levels for every new run. Other features include: -Colourful 2d sprites -Custom Soundtrack -Different bosses/Story mode -Full Controller Support (xinput, xbox, and dualshock) -Adjustable difficulty -Highscores and achievements The game was developed on OpenSuse and should run well on any modern Linux system. Visit https://thunderperfectwitchcraft.itch.io/the-vaults-of-minos to get the game or the demo. A steam release is planned for late july/early august. I'll stick around if you have any questions or feedback regarding the game!

Is it now safe to assume that all games now work in Linux?
I remember those dark days when I would check winehq before buying games because I didn't know if they would work in Linux or not. I realized recently that I stopped checking winehq or protondb, because I implicitly assume that everything will "just work". Hard to say when this transition happened, but it feels at least a few years old. Looking at latest stats, the only holdouts appear to be those games that explicitly ban Linux users with some quasi-malware anti-cheat. https://www.gamingonlinux.com/2022/06/3500-games-now-steam-deck-verified-or-playable/ What a time we live in!

First they force everyone on a microshit account, then ban you from your own server for drinking a beer... GODDAMNIT EVERYTHING MICROSOFT TOUCHES TURNS TO SHIT.
