So What's your Latest Game Obsession?
« on: 06. May 2016, 23:44:13 »
So what's eating up the hours for you lately?
Just discovered in the Repo PokerTH as last week installed the Windows version. And the Zork series in the Aur.



Never learned Texas Hold'Em before. So fun playing Maxed out at 1,000,000 buy in with 10 players.
Also supports Online and Lan I quess. And Zork bringing back the memories.



So what your recommends for Linux games in the repo? Aur?
As not so much interested in the Steam Struggle to Victory  or Wine hit or miss :-[
But feel free to share your Steam & Wine experiences tho as others may find useful.

I recently completed Wasteland 2, took me nearly 100hrs to finish.  Very good game, I plan to do a 2nd playthrough at a later date.

Or, if you meant existing game I last played obsessively,adom.

Polaris Sector
- traveling though space (one generated galaxy) like in Mass Effect
- ally or make war against 1-7 other races
- colonizing planets for resources
- nice research system and customizable ships

It can take up a lot of time  ::)

Games in the repo?

Dwarf Fortress.   ;D

Be warned the learning curve is pretty steep (although there is a good wiki) and the user interface is about as bad as the game is good.  >:D

Sink of time recently, adapting to linux and trying to get (a heavily modded version of) Skyrim set up.  Almost there, I think...

HunieCam Studio!
The ultimate tyranny in a society is not control
by martial law. It is control by the psychological
manipulation of consciousness, through which reality
is defined so that those who exist within do not even
realize that they are in prison.

CS:GO
GTA V
The Witcher 3
Firewatch
Cities Skylines
Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag

All on Win10 though. Thinking of replaying Far Cry 3&4, original Deus Ex (with mods) and getting the new Hitman and remastered Grim Fandango.

Haven't gamed for years, but a friend of mine recently talked about Factorio so I thought I'd google it and it turned out to have both a linux version and a free demo mode and now I'm hooked.
