Tell Paradox you are interested in Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2 for Linux:

Paradox just announced Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2. Yes, the long awaited sequel to Bloodlines which many were waiting for since Paradox bought White Wolf.

The game will be developed by Hardsuit Labs studio. Paradox are generally Linux friendly, so may be they’ll release it for Linux too? So far good news is that they plan to release it DRM-free on GOG.

I opened a thread on Paradox forum to ask for Linux release: https://forum.paradoxplaza.com/forum/index.php?threads/bloodlines-2-for-linux.1162040/

Feel free to comment there and tell them that you are interested.

OpenRA – Classic strategy games, rebuilt for the modern era:

OpenRA - Classic strategy games, rebuilt for the modern era

Today we decided to play with Westwood Studio’s late nineties strategic titles: Red Alert, Tiberian Dawn and Dune 2000. All, without Wine or any other type of emulation, but using only what Linux offers . OpenRA is the answer to questions about how to do something like that. This carefully recreated Open Source engine is common to all three games.
OpenRA, in fact, allows Red Alert to work in a practically perfect way, just as Julius succeeds withCesar III. The engine comes with a built-in wizard, which requires only a few mouse clicks to download the original assets of the chosen game. The titles are very similar, but the graphics are practically unique for each of them. With OpenRA, therefore, the plot remains in a secondary position and it does not matter if the war takes place in a parallel timeline where Nazi Germany does not exist.

The game, in any case, always takes into consideration the classic confrontation between East and West. Regardless of the front you choose, the things to do are always the same: to build a powerful and productive military economy, extract gold, train soldiers and attack the enemy as soon as possible. In this regard, if you can launch an offensive before your opponent does, you will undoubtedly have the advantage.
OpenRA is a complete and highly developed game with intelligent robots, multiplayer modes and a rich set of missions, as well as fun tricks and characters. You will therefore appreciate the quality of OpenRA in a number of ways, including the well-designed interface where most actions can be taken from the keys. Finally, you’ll enjoy a powerful network mode, ideal for the most ferocious battles with friends, as well as an exceptional game speed.

Does anyone know if there would be anything that would prevent this game from running on wine or proton?

Wayland and x server wacom drivers.

Wayland and x server wacom drivers.:

I use a wacom tablet to play osu! on Linux. I’ve been hearing some things about Wayland and I wondered, would the drivers for my wacom tablet not work anymore if my distro started using wayland? I don’t remember what the name of the driver is, but I know the command that you use to make changes to settings related to the tablet is ‘xsetwacom’.

What a difference a year makes

What a difference a year makes:

Around this time last year, I still had lingering concerns over Linux’s gaming future. After the failed launch of steam machines and Valves apparent silence in the whole Linux gaming sphere, I must admit I was somewhat worried.

WINE 3.0 was launched, although it came without an active ‘staging’ team. It really felt that the whole Linux gaming world that had been built up until then was crumbling beneath us.

Sure there were those of us who understood that the whole mesa/llvm stuff needed sorting out at a fundamental level and that may be why Valve etc. were quiet, but we were scared.

Then something magical happened. DXVK arrived, staging got a new team, Mesa had some major updates and the flow of Linux native titles and ports started to look promising again.

Roll on August and Valve actually do the unthinkable, they put WINE into steam!

Since then the progress of Linux, Vulkan, Steamplay and the whole ecosystem has tranformed gaming on Linux to an almost unbelievable experience.

Roll on the future, and thank you to all involved in making this my ‘year of the Linux desktop’!
